NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wilmington Ohio 
927 am EDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will control the weather over the Ohio Valley 
today with dry and cool conditions expected. A trough of low 
pressure and a cold front will move southeast into the region on 
Friday bringing occasional rain...which may mix with light snow 
early Saturday morning. Much colder conditions are expected behind 
the cold front for the weekend with a warming trend beginning 
early next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
satellite imagery shows extensive clouds across parts of the 
northwest and southeast forecast area with little or no clouds 
elsewhere. There is not a clear cut evolution...although model 
trends suggests that there should be a slow erosion to these lower 
clouds. There will be a band of middle to high clouds spreading in 
during the afternoon although it does not appear that this will be 
a solid band. Forecast highs look reasonable at this point with 
little or no change. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Saturday night/... 
the short term forecast period will be dominated by a complex 
weather system that will affect much of the eastern part of the 
country. A sharp middle-level trough is expected to develop 
into a compact closed low as it moves south-southeast out of the Canadian 
plains...crossing the western Great Lakes on Friday...and reaching 
the southeastern states on Saturday morning. The strength of this 
system (as noted by height anomalies) is very much out of the 
Ordinary...and as admitted by National Weather Service wpc...this leads to some 
confidence concerns in the overall forecast for the next few days. 
Overall...the impacts for the iln forecast area will be most 
notable in terms of the cold temperatures moving into the 
area...with a few interesting notes in terms of winds and light 
snow behind the surface cold front. 


A brief period of southwesterly flow will help keep temperatures 
steady headed into Friday morning...in advance of a surface cold 
front. This front is forecast to move southeast through the iln 
County Warning Area during the day on Friday. This required a non-diurnal 
temperature curve...with a gradient in maximum temperatures from 
northwest to southeast. The front is not expected to be a 
significant focus for precipitation on its own...but a large area 
favorable for ascent will be located ahead (east) of the middle-level 
low...especially as a region of upper divergence moves through 
late Friday afternoon into the evening. Additional precipitation 
from a weak shortwave crossing the lower Ohio Valley will 
eventually wrap into the main deepening trough by Friday 
afternoon. Focusing on the afternoon to early evening 
period...likely probability of precipitation have been included for the entire forecast 
area...with the greatest chances (where there was serious 
consideration for categorical pops) in the eastern half of the 
County Warning Area. A very small amount of instability may allow for a few 
convective showers in southern Ohio and northeast Kentucky on 
Friday afternoon...but BUFKIT soundings suggest equilibrium levels 
of only around -5c...not tall enough for thunder. 


Though model agreement in the general setup is fairly 
strong...the speed of the departure of precipitation early 
Saturday morning is an important question that remains somewhat 
uncertain. Seeing no strong reason to make a big change...this 
forecast will stick mainly to continuity...with similar timing to 
the previous forecast. This will allow for dry conditions in the 
western County Warning Area by 12z Saturday...and clearing out of the Scioto 
valley after 18z. 


The temperature forecast for early Saturday morning is going to be 
very closely tied with the potential for snow. As temperatures 
continue to cool behind the surface front on Friday night...model 
soundings suggest that sub-freezing air will eventually work its 
way close enough to the surface to allow for snow to mix with 
rain. However...this currently seems most likely to occur over the 
western half of the County Warning Area...where drying conditions and a loss of 
ascent will be limiting precipitation potential as temperatures 
cool. In the eastern County Warning Area (especially central ohio)...wrap-around 
warm advection on the north side of the low center is now expected 
to keep temperatures too warm for snow. This change has been 
reflected in the grids...with all rain expected through the 
Columbus metropolitan and eastward. Even where temperatures become cold 
enough for snow (while precipitation continues to occur)...the wet 
nature of the setup will keep the chance of accumulation very low. 
This adjustment to temperatures Saturday morning also means that 
sub-freezing conditions will only be likely to occur west of 
US-68. 


The northerly flow behind the cold front on Friday night and early 
Saturday will increase significantly...becoming quite gusty. Wind 
gusts of 25 knots (southern cwa) to 30 knots (northern cwa) will 
remain in the forecast. 


Models have continued to suggest that low-level relative humidity will be 
extremely slow to scour out on Saturday and into Saturday 
night...and sky grids have been increased through this period of 
the forecast. Conditions on Saturday are now expected to remain 
rather cloudy...doing no favors to a maximum temperature forecast in 
the lower to middle 40s...about 15 degrees below normal. 


The change to the cloud forecast is also resulting in a slight 
change in thinking for Saturday night / Sunday morning. What once 
looked like an easy hard freeze for the entire County Warning Area is now slightly 
in doubt for northeast Kentucky and the Scioto valley. The new 
hazardous weather outlook will reflect this thinking (and the 
level of confidence) in multiple segments. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
skies should clear and as the high shifts east return flow will 
set up starting Tuesday with a warming trend that will put 
readings more towards normal values...slightly warmer on overnight 
lows. 


Another cold front will cross the Ohio Valley on Tuesday. Models 
diverge in the evolution of the system. Initial forecast had the 
front cross early Tuesday and have dry weather over the Northern 
Ohio valley. Latest European model comes through with an elongated 
NE-SW trough with a middle level strong shortwave riding northeast 
along it on Wednesday. The forecast blended the two with an initial 
nod to the GFS. Feel that this may need to lean towards the wetter 
and more dynamic Euro model solution in future forecasts. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Thursday through Monday/... 
surface high pressure will settle over the Ohio Valley today. 
Scattered-broken VFR stratocumulus will continue to linger across the 
region. Middle and high level clouds will spread east into the area 
between 18z and 00z. 


For tonight...an embedded disturbance aloft will increase clouds. 
This feature is forecast to pass just to the southwest with 
perhaps a small chance of a light shower encroaching near the 
kcvg/kluk terminals. 


On Friday...a potent upper level low will dig southward into the 
Great Lakes and Ohio Valley. This system will bring an increase 
for showers along and behind a strengthening cold front that will 
push through during the day. Aviators can expect MVFR conditions 
with the showers. Gusty northwest winds to 25 knots will develop 
behind the front. 


Outlook...MVFR/IFR ceilings likely Friday night into Saturday 
morning...with MVFR/IFR visibilities possible. MVFR ceilings 
likely Saturday afternoon into Saturday evening. Gusty north winds 
to 30 knots expected Friday night into Saturday

Ohio...none. 
Kentucky...none. 
In...none.
