NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wilmington Ohio 
653 PM EST Tuesday Feb 9 2016 


Synopsis... 
a large upper trough will slowly move east of the Ohio Valley over 
the next few days. This will keep a chance of snow showers through 
Wednesday. Below normal temperatures will remain through the rest 
of the week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Wednesday morning/... 
Winter Weather Advisory headlines have been extended slightly into 
Wednesday...primarily due to the prolonged and continued chance of 
snow showers over the next 24 hours. Chances for snow on Wednesday 
will be discussed in the short term section below. 


Large-scale troughing continues to envelop the entire eastern half 
of the country...with the axis of the trough still in place over 
the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley. Originally a closed low...the 
trough is gradually weakening as it moves to the east. Water vapor 
imagery shows the complexities of the system...with an obvious 
large-scale circulation across hundreds of miles...but several 
individual gyres embedded within the broader flow. 


At the surface...a closed low is currently located north of London 
Ontario. This low has several troughs rotating around it...with 
one trough entering the forecast area from the northwest as of 
this writing. With a noted wind shift...and some enhanced 
convergence...snow showers have developed across the iln forecast 
area this afternoon. Additional snow shower development is 
expected as this feature moves through the region...with the 
potential for around a half inch of snowfall. Forcing becomes 
weaker going through the rest of the evening and overnight...but 
model soundings suggest that the boundary layer will remain well 
mixed...with moisture extending a little bit into the dendritic 
growth zone from the bottom of the inversion. Thus...some light 
snow showers or flurries will remain likely through the night. 


Temperatures will continue to fall in the cold advection 
tonight...and temperatures will likely reach the middle to upper 
teens across the forecast area. For the area where snow was 
heaviest this morning (hamilton County to Hocking 
county)...temperatures were dropped a few degrees below the 
otherwise-expected forecast numbers for the rest of the County Warning Area. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Wednesday morning through Thursday night/... 
the primary upper trough axis will be moving away from the region 
early Wednesday...but chances for snow will increase again on 
Wednesday morning. A combination of forcing from a shortwave and 
surface trough will pivot eastward through the region between 09z 
and 18z. With colder temperatures than experienced today 
(tuesday)...especially aloft in the 900mb-750mb layer...the 
potential for weak convective instability through the dendritic 
growth zone will be increased. The combination of forcing and 
steel lapse rates will be greatest over the northeastern quadrant 
of the forecast area (central ohio) during the 15z-18z time 
frame...where some heavy snow showers may be possible. 


It is always difficult to draw a uniform snow total forecast grid in 
a snow shower situation...given the inherent geographic 
uncertainties caused by the eventual developmental locations of 
the heaviest showers. That being said...accumulations of around an 
inch will not be a surprise at all...with the greatest potential 
for up to two inches in the northeastern iln County Warning Area. Probability of precipitation range from 
40-80 percent across the forecast area from southwest to 
northeast...with these values kept lower than preferred due to the 
aforementioned issues and for collaboration purposes. These 
pop numbers will likely need to be raised in future forecasts...as 
it seems quite certain that most locations will at least measure a 
little bit of additional snow on Wednesday morning. As a final 
note about the snow...a favorably-positioned stratocumulus deck 
will likely keep the chance of flurries in place through Wednesday 
night...possibly even into Thursday morning. 


The Winter Weather Advisory essentially has two segments...though 
coding purposes require it to be split into four groups. For the 
southern and southwestern County Warning Area (cincinnati/Wilmington/maysville) 
the advisory was extended through morning. For the eastern County Warning Area 
(portsmouth/Chillicothe/columbus) the advisory was continued 
through late afternoon. 


Temperatures are expected to rise only very slightly on 
Wednesday...as continued cold advection (and a lack of insolation) 
limits the potential for diurnal heating. Wednesday night will 
be quite cold...especially with snow in place...and temperatures 
in the single digits are now in the forecast (dropped several 
degrees from previous numbers). Little change is expected to the 
temperatures on Thursday...with a generally neutral low-level 
advection pattern. However...with temperatures slowly beginning to 
warm aloft...the clouds are expected to eventually break by the 
end of the day. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Tuesday/... 
a weak system will move generally south of the area Friday 
morning. Introduce only a slight chance of snow showers to 
southern portions of the region during this time. An upper level 
disturbance moves through Friday afternoon into Friday evening 
bringing better chances for some light snow to the region. Winds 
off of Lake Michigan will linger snow showers across portions of 
the area Friday night into Saturday. Temperatures will struggle to 
rise on Saturday with cold airmass in place. 


Any remaining snow showers will taper off by Saturday evening and 
cloud cover will decrease. The combination light winds...mostly 
clear skies...and snow on the ground will lead to temperatures 
dropping into the single digits to single digits below zero Saturday 
night. 


Dry conditions will be in place most of the day on Sunday however 
expect an increase in clouds through the day in advance of the next 
system. Models are in some disagreement on how quickly 
precipitation will overspread the area. Have precipitation chances 
beginning to move into the region Sunday evening into Sunday night 
with better chances during the day on Monday. Although there may be 
a brief mix in precipitation across southern portions of the region 
generally expect temperature profiles to be cold enough that 
precipitation will be in the form of snow. Snow will taper off 
Monday night with high pressure and dry conditions moving into the 
region for Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
snow showers will continue into the early part of the taf period 
with visibilities occasionally lowering to IFR. Appears that 
activity should then diminish although opted to leave p6sm -shsn 
in the tafs to indicate the possibility of a lingering snow shower 
or flurry. Ceilings will remain MVFR with west winds 10 to 15 knots. 


Towards 12z another disturbance will bring more snow showers 
across the region which will once again reduce visibilities to IFR 
and possibly even lower at times. Once this disturbance swings 
through the ceilings will be able to rise to VFR late in the taf 
period. West winds will increase in strength during the day with 
some gusts up to 25 knots possible. 


Outlook...MVFR ceilings and visibilities possible Friday afternoon 
into Saturday.
