NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
1000 PM EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


Update... 


The near term section has been updated below. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 330 PM EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


We will transition from a cold pattern to mild pattern over the next seven 
days as strong upper trough over Ontario...eastern Great Lakes and New 
England moves on to the east and is replaced by a broad upper ridge 
over much of the U.S. 


In near term...a clipper which brought light snow showers today will move 
quickly eastward. Lake effect snow showers are possible over northeast 
sections through early Saturday as a very cold northwest flow picks 
up some moisture off of Lake Michigan. A stronger disturbance will bring 
a likelihood of snow to most areas Sunday and Sunday night. Then a couple of 
other disturbances will bring chances of mixed precipitation or snow Monday 
through the middle of next week and a chance of rain by day 7. 


&& 


Near term /tonight and Saturday/... 
issued at 1000 PM EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


Going forecast in very good shape. Made minor tweaks to the sky 
grids but otherwise we are on track. Previous discussion follows. 


Issued at 330 PM EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


Light snow showers have increased this afternoon as an upper disturbance 
moves east southeast across our region. The snow showers should end over 
western and southern sections by evening...but will continue east of a 
Frankfort to Indianapolis and Shelbyville line overnight and some areas 
early Saturday as a northwest flow off of Southern Lake mihcigan produces 
scattered light snow showers. Accumulations up to a third of an inch are 
possible over the far northeast...while little or no accumulation occurs 
elsewhere. 


Other issues tonight will be low temperatures in the single digits and wind 
chills of around 10 below late tonight. Raised temperatures slightly in the 
far northeast...otherwise stayed close to a MOS blend on temperatures. 


Saturday will be cold with highs in the teens...but with temperatures 
approaching 20 far south which was near a MOS blend. High pressure over 
the upper Midwest Saturday morning will build to northern Indiana late Saturday. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday/... 
issued at 330 PM EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


Main focus will be snow chances and accumulations Sunday into Monday 
as a could of systems move our way. 


High pressure over northern Indiana and the Great Lakes Saturday 
evening will move quickly eastward as a couple of upper disturbances 
move our way. Warm advection ahead of this system will cause precipitation 
to spread into our region by Sunday morning. Started slight chance probability of precipitation 
over southwest sections after 09z Sunday and elsewhere had probability of precipitation increasing 
to likley's during the day Sunday. 


Models indicate one disturbance will move east across the southern Great 
Lakes as another disturbance causes a low pressure system to develop over 
the lower Mississippi Valley Sunday night. Most of our weather will be 
from the northern system which will produce a couple inches of snow Sunday 
and Sunday night. Precipitation from this system will gradually end from 
Monday over northern and western sections. But will keep low chances 
across our south and east through the short term. 


Models indicate some warming by Monday...but GFS seems a bit too warm and will 
lean towards the cooler NAM on Monday. But this warming may still be 
enough for mixed precipitation or low chances of rain Monday afternoon 
in the south. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
issued at 234 PM EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


One wave is exiting the area as the long term starts but it is 
quickly followed by another wave bringing more precipitation chances to 
central Indiana for Tuesday and Tuesday night. With high 
variability in ensembles and cips analogs not keying in on any 
significant event accepted the initialization low chance probability of precipitation for 
that time frame. Could see enough warming for Tuesday to be a mix 
of rain and snow for much of the area switching back over to snow 
Tuesday night. A warming trend will ramp up from Wednesday through 
Friday with highs climbing from the middle 30s to the middle 50s. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 130300z kind taf update/... 
issued at 920 PM EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


No changes made to the forecast at this time. Previous discussion 
follows. 


Snow shower activity currently in the process of pushing off to the 
southeast of the terminals...and should be gone by issuance time. 


Otherwise...expecting VFR ceilings around 040 to gradually scatter 
out with time this evening. Pressure rise maximum still off to the 
northwest...so should see surface gusts around 25 kts from 300-320 
degrees linger well into the evening hours before settling in the 
10-15 knots range. 


&& 


Ind watches/warnings/advisories...none.
