NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wilmington Ohio 
1251 am EST Thursday Jan 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will approach tonight and move through the region on 
Thursday. This system will bring a threat of wintry precipitation at 
least at the onset in some locations. As the low pressure system 
departs...any lingering showers should turn to snow showers from 
late Thursday afternoon into Thursday evening. High pressure will begin 
to build back into the area on Friday and remain in control of the 
weather into the start of the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am this morning/... 
conditions are dry initially due to high pressure that will begin 
to depart the region. High clouds are thickening ahead of an 
approaching low pressure system. 


It still appears that temperatures will generally be steady 
during the evening hours with guidance suggesting min temperatures 
around midnight in many locations outside of any decoupled valleys 
in eastern and southeast part of the County Warning Area. Southerly flow will 
increase tonight. As southerly flow increases temperatures will 
begin to slowly rise through the overnight hours. 


Precipitation will hold off for most of the overnight hours. There 
is enough concern for some of this to reaching the ground toward 
dawn that a Freezing Rain Advisory is planned for the northern 
tier or two of counties...though most of this should hold off 
until the short term period. 


&& 


Short term /6 am this morning through Friday night/... 
in the SW part of the area...expect temperatures to already be 
near or above freezing to start the period and the precipitation 
will likely just begin as rain. However...there is some 
uncertainty with the time of arrival of precipitation as the GFS 
saturates this area a bit quicker and the top down approach would 
suggest the possibility of a mix at onset there as well. 


The chances for a mix at onset are better further to the north 
and east as the initially dry airmass will be able to wet bulb and 
freezing rain or sleet would be possible for a longer period of 
time...but this precipitation would be very light. In this 
area...there will be a brief window for a couple of hours where 
temperatures could be at or just below freezing as precipitation 
moves into the area. Due to this...a brief period of freezing rain 
will be possible considering the cold and initially frozen or snow 
covered ground in place particularly across the north and 
northeastern part of the area due to the recent colder weather. Any 
precipitation that reaches the ground before middle morning in the far 
north and east could lead to some impacts of slick or icy spots on 
untreated or secondary roads...bridges...overpasses and walkways 
during the morning...so a Freezing Rain Advisory has been issued for 
the northern tier or two of counties to include the Columbus metropolitan 
area. Any freezing rain is expected to be light...but still a 
potential threat. As for the severe weather potential statement...we plan to continue to mention 
freezing rain or mix at onset for the southwest three quarters of 
the area. 


Warmer air will continue to surge into the area by middle to late 
Thursday morning and as it does temperatures will rise above 
freezing across the entire forecast area ahead of the cold front. This cold 
front move through the forecast area during the afternoon and early evening 
hours on Thursday bringing additional precipitation chances to the 
area. As the colder air begins to work into the region later in 
the afternoon and evening...precipitation will changeover to snow 
showers from north or northeast to southeast. The chances for 
light snow showers will continue Thursday night and possibly into 
early on Friday due to a combination of a weak disturbance passing 
through and winds off of Lake Michigan. Snowfall accumulation from 
this is still expected to light and an inch or less. 


High pressure will begin to work into the forecast area later Friday 
afternoon into Friday night. Cloud cover will decrease through the 
night Friday night and winds will be light. With this combination 
expect temperatures to drop down into the single digits to the 
teens across the forecast area. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Wednesday/... 
surface high pressure passing northwest to southeast over the region at the start 
of the period will provide clear to partly cloudy skies and cold 
temperatures Friday night and Saturday. After this...the forecast 
troubles begin. An upper level trough about to move onshore on the 
West Coast will close off a low over the SW Continental U.S. Late in the week. 
An upper level impulse should then drop southeast out of Canada across the 
Great Plains this weekend. The degree to which this phases with the 
upper low/residual trough over the SW Continental U.S. Is still uncertain. The 
eventual track and strength of the upper level system will affect 
subsequent surface low development in the eastern Continental U.S.. a wide 
range of tracks and strengths of surface systems has been observed 
in the models in recent days...with the GFS and European model (ecmwf) showing both 
run to run and model to model inconsistencies...and no consensus 
yet. The latest 12z runs have generally trended weaker with the 
system. Bottom line...there is still a large degree of uncertainty 
regarding the forecast during this period. At this point the 
forecast is still one of low confidence...and is based on a blend of 
recent model runs. The precipitation threat will be from Saturday night 
into Sunday night...and mainly in the form of snow. Have allowed for 
a potential mix with rain in southern Ohio and northern Kentucky. 


In the wake of the weekend system...high pressure with another 
Arctic air mass is expected to move in from the northwest and dominate 
through Tuesday. On Wednesday...another large scale upper trough 
begins to deepen as it moves in from the northwest...and low level warm air 
advection begins in advance of it. Timing of weak upper level 
impulses in that time frame would be a guess at this point...but 
some model runs have shown a potential for a bit of snow...and have 
used a 20 percent pop on Wednesday. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Thursday through Monday/... 
VFR conditions will prevail through the early part of the taf 
period. Showers falling out of a middle deck will spread into the 
region around 12z and quickly move through with a chance of 
precipitation for only a couple of hours at any one locations. 
Will be a close call...but latest high resolution guidance 
suggests that temperatures will be just rising above freezing as 
precipitation moves through. While tafs only mention rain...there 
still is a chance of freezing rain at all but the Cincinnati 
terminals. 


Once this band of precipitation moves through expect winds to 
become gusty. MVFR ceilings will move in ahead of a cold front. 
Expect frontal passage between 18z and 22z. Winds will veer to the 
west and remain gusty with ceilings lower a bit further. Cannot 
rule out a few showers with the front but probability does not 
look too high so only included vcsh. Winds will diminish a bit 
after 00z with a slight improvement in ceilings. 


Outlook...MVFR ceilings will likely continue through Friday. IFR 
ceilings and visibilities likely Sunday into Sunday night with 
MVFR conditions possibly continuing into Monday. 


&& 


Iln watches/warnings/advisories...
