NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
744 am EDT Tuesday may 26 2015 


Update... 
the aviation section has been updated below. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 326 am EDT Tuesday may 26 2015 


Unsettled conditions expected through the work week and into the 
weekend as occasional upper disturbances move over the 
area...resulting in periodic chances for showers and thunderstorms. 


&& 


Near term /today/... 


Issued at 326 am EDT Tuesday may 26 2015 


The next upper wave currently approaching northwest Illinois is 
expected to eject northeast across the forecast area beginning later 
this morning. In response to this feature...the low level jet will 
increase again towards dawn...resulting in additional gusty winds 
today. This wave will produce rain showers and thunderstorms 
across most of central Indiana...with the highest probability of precipitation depicted in 
the guidance to be across the southwest counties of central Indiana. 
Based on good model consensus and consistency likely probability of precipitation will 
remain in the forecast for today. Lapse rates/deep shear look rather 
marginal for severe convection...although models suggest lapse rates 
may steepen some during the afternoon so isolated severe storms 
cannot be completely ruled out. 


As for temperatures...undercut MOS slightly to account for clouds 
and precipitation chances for highs reaching the upper 70s to around 
80. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Thursday night/... 


Issued at 326 am EDT Tuesday may 26 2015 


This unsettled pattern will continue for scattered showers and 
thunderstorms into at least middle week as a series of upper level 
disturbances ripple through the flow. Will continue with chance 
probability of precipitation for Wednesday and Thursday. The convective threat appears 
more suppressed on Thursday so downplayed probability of precipitation to 20-30 percent 
during the day as heights start to rise again...and dry briefly 
for Thursday night. 


MOS blend for temperatures appears reasonable during this period 
for highs in the low 80s and lows in the middle 60s. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Monday night/... 


Issued at 332 am EDT Tuesday may 26 2015 


A rather active weather pattern will be in place for the duration 
of the extended period. First...central Indiana will fall into the 
warm sector of a surface low centered over the Central Plains on 
Friday. Meanwhile...high pressure will dominate the southeast 
portions of the U.S. This set up will be conducive to diurnally 
driven showers and thunderstorms for the beginning of the long 
term period. 


As a cold front associated with aforementioned surface low passes 
over the forecast area on Saturday...precipitation chances are 
expected to increase per the latest regional initialization. 


Late in the extended...a cut-off low aloft will track across the 
lower Midwest. This will provide additional enhancement for 
shower and thunderstorm development on Monday. Latest superblend 
seems a tad low in regard to precipitation chances though with this 
upper disturbance...but will not deviate from those numbers at 
this time. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 26/1200z taf issuance/... 


Issued at 732 am EDT Tuesday may 26 2015 


Conditions are currently at MVFR category at all taf sites and 
should remain there for most of the day with brief improvement to 
VFR this afternoon. Anticipate rain to start entering taf sites by 
late morning with a chance for strong to severe thunderstorms this 
afternoon and evening. 


Convective threat should taper off after sunset...but focus then 
shifts to the chance for fog development tonight. Inserted mention 
of IFR and MVFR fog at taf sites after Wednesday 09z...but this is low 
confidence and dependant on how much precipitation falls at taf sites later 
today. 


Winds will be southwesterly for duration of taf period with 
sustained speeds generally between 5 to 10 kts...gusting to 25 
kts at times today and tomorrow.

Ind watches/warnings/advisories...none.
