NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wilmington Ohio 
353 PM EDT sun may 1 2016 


Synopsis... 
waves of low pressure traveling along a slow moving frontal 
boundary will trigger numerous showers and thunderstorms this 
evening into tonight. As the front sags south to Tennessee... 
another wave of low pressure is forecast to bring more showers and 
a few thunderstorms primarily to southern locations on Monday. The 
chance for showers may further diminish Tuesday when weak high 
pressure is expected to build over the Great Lakes. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Monday morning/... 
surface analysis shows weak low pressure centered near Cincinnati 
positioned along a front extending SW to NE. Dew point plot shows 
low to middle 60s over Kentucky and southern Ohio south of the low 
center...with upper 50s across Ohio and Indiana north of the low. 
Laps surface based convective available potential energy are in the 1000 to 1600 j/kg range. 


Thunderstorms are developing and strengthening in the increasingly 
unstable environment. With a strong middle level flow of 50+ knots 
enhancing storm organization and strength...a few cells are 
nearing severe limits. Thus...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 133 is in 
effect until 9 PM. Thereafter...instability will decline with loss 
of daytime heating...and storm strength will diminish overnight. 


However...another wave of low pressure arriving from the west is 
expected to result in shower and thunderstorm redevelopment after 
sunset...affecting mainly northern counties. 


Temperatures tonight will vary relative to the location of the 
slow moving boundary. Lows are forecast to range from about 50 
northwest behind the front...to the upper 50s south of the front. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Monday morning through Monday night/... 
frontal boundary is forecast to be sagging southward through 
Kentucky Monday morning and afternoon...to Tennessee Monday 
evening. Additional waves of low pressure rippling along the 
boundary will enhance lift and moisture...providing good chances 
for showers...with a few thunderstorms possible in southeastern 
locations that will be closer to the bulk of instability and 
moisture. Instability on the north side of the boundary may be too 
weak to support severe storms. Shower chances will diminish but 
not disappear Monday night as the boundary continues south and 
weak high pressure builds from the northwest. 


High temperatures will range from around 60 far northwest up to 
the middle 70s far southeast. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Saturday/... 
upper level trough lags surface low which is to our east on Tuesday. This 
will keep the threat of a shower over iln/S southeast counties early Tuesday. 
Models solutions have been trending slower with precipitation ending. 
Temperatures will be a little below normal...with highs in the 
Lower/Middle 60s. 


Numerical model solutions generally similar with northern stream trough 
sharpening up and digging south across the Great Lakes/Ohio Valley at 
middle week. This will allow a surface cold front to drop south through iln/S 
forecast area Wednesday afternoon. Instability continues to be marginal...so have 
elected to keep precipitation mention to chance of showers. Temperatures will 
be slightly below normal with highs Wednesday from the lower 60s north to 
the upper 60s south. 


Upper low closes off Thursday and settles into the upper Ohio 
Valley. This will keep a low pop chance of a shower in the forecast with 
the best threat over iln/S eastern counties. Under the influence of 
this upper low temperatures will be close to 10 degrees below normal 
Thursday with highs from the upper 50s north to near 60 far south. 


Some model solution timing and placement differences develop in handling 
this upper low but the general trend takes it off to our east next 
weekend. This will allow precipitation to end early Friday. Some moderation 
expected with highs Friday in the lower and middle 60s. 


In the wake of this upper level low...height rises and surface high to 
build in Saturday. This will lead to dry weather and a moderation of 
temperatures. Expect highs Saturday to range from the upper 60s 
north to 70 south. 


East-west surface front to drop into the region next Sunday from the north. 
Confidence is not real high with this feature...so have only added 
slight chance/chance probability of precipitation for a shower. Temperatures look to warm above 
normal with highs Sunday from 70 to 75. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Sunday through Friday/... 
some patches of MVFR ceilings will remain in place for another few 
hours. Shower and thunderstorm development is expected over the 
next several hours as well...and a tempo group for showers has 
been included for most of the taf sites this afternoon. The 
greatest chance for thunderstorms is likely to occur south and 
east of the airports...but thunder could be included in the tafs 
if necessary in future updates. 


Winds will shift from the southwest to the northwest going through 
the overnight hours. Another chance of precipitation will occur 
late tonight and into the overnight hours...more likely for the 
Dayton and Columbus taf sites. Some MVFR conditions will be 
possible. However...by early Monday morning...low-end MVFR 
ceilings (possibly ifr) will move into the northern taf sites. 


Outlook...MVFR ceilings may occur on Monday morning. MVFR 
visibilities in rain are also possible on Monday. MVFR ceilings 
are possible again Wednesday night into Thursday.
