NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
1023 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


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


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 207 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Dry weather is in store this Fourth of July weekend as high pressure 
camps out over the area. Showers and thunderstorms will be back in 
the picture by Monday night as a cold front approaches from the 
northwest and stalls nearby. 


Temperatures will briefly return to normal with afternoon highs in 
the lower to middle 80s on Sunday. However...it will cool off a bit 
again by Tuesday with highs in the middle 70s to around 80 through 
Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /overnight/... 
issued at 956 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Fantastic evening to enjoy Independence day festivities with high 
pressure across the region. Thin cirrus shield associated with 
upper low over the Tennessee Valley had expanded into the southern 
half of the forecast area. 0130z temperatures were comfortable in the 
70s. 


Very little change needed for the evening update. The surface high 
will maintain dry weather overnight. Cirrus will likely remain 
south of I-70 overnight as the upper low track slowly east across 
Tennessee. Generally light and variable winds will promote patchy 
fog once again towards daybreak. Bumped up overnight lows a degree 
or two over southern counties with cirrus present and also raised 
temperatures for indy metropolitan based on lows last few nights. 


Zone and grid updates out. Happy 4th. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Tuesday/... 
issued at 207 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


The main focus for the short term will be on arrival timing and 
coverage of thunderstorms early next week as models agree a cold 
front will be approaching central Indiana from the northwest on 
Tuesday. 


Although the models toy around with spotty quantitative precipitation forecast at various times 
across our southern counties through Monday...associated with 
developing Tennessee Valley upper low...think upper ridging over the 
Great Lakes should keep things mostly dry with shower and 
thunderstorm chances too low to mention. It will also be warmer with 
850 millibar temperatures increasing a few degrees to 15 to 16 
degrees celsius on Sunday and 17 to 18 on Monday. 850 millibar 
forecasting chart using mostly sunny skies per model relative humidity time 
sections and cumulus development forecasts suggests afternoon temperatures at 
or near 12z MOS with normal highs in the lower to middle 80s Sunday and 
middle to upper 80s Monday. 


Things should change by Monday night as a cold front approaches from 
the northwest...and an upper trough moves through on Tuesday. The 
models...especially the NAM...are trending slower with the 
Mississippi Valley part of the front. The NAM is actually faster 
with the surface low and northeastern part of the front. With the 
12z run...the GFS is now closer to the 00z European model (ecmwf)...00z gefs mean and 
ecens mean with the frontal position. This would be from around 
South Bend to Oklahoma City at 12z Tuesday...Fort Wayne to St. Louis 
at 18z and Muncie to Indianapolis to Terre Haute at 00z Wednesday. 
This looks like a reasonable progression based on trends and last 
night's ensemble means. This would also favor holding off chance 
probability of precipitation until overnight Monday night. 


At any rate...the synoptic forcing will interact with increasing 
moisture and instability and should result in more widespread storms 
on Tuesday...when model time sections show the deepest moisture and 
strongest vertical velocities. Likely probability of precipitation continue to look good. 


The widespread storms and thick cloud cover will result in cooler 
temperatures on Tuesday with highs in the middle 70s to lower 80s per 
ensemble MOS looking good. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Saturday/... 
issued at 255 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


The cold front which will push across our region Tuesday will stall 
near the Ohio River Wednesday as high pressure builds into the Great 
Lakes. Both the GFS and Euro have trended wetter across southern 
portions of central Indiana Tuesday night and Wednesday and will add 
likely probability of precipitation across our south there with chance probability of precipitation elsewhere. A 
weak area of low pressure will move east along the front Thursday 
and another weak system will move our way towards Saturday. Went 
with chance probability of precipitation most areas Thursday through Saturday...but my 
confidence for rain seems low until Saturday. 


Highs will be in the upper 70s early on rising to the lower to 
middle 80s by Saturday with lows mostly in the 60s rising to the 
upper 60s to near 70 by the weekend. Went slightly warmer than 
super blend on lows Tuesday night and Wednesday night due to lots of 
clouds and some precipitation. Otherwise...only minor changes made 
elsewhere. 


&& 


Aviation /update to 050000z kind taf/... 


Issued at 1020 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


North wind under 5 kts will slowly veer to east and southeast 
during forecast. Cirrus cloud from upper low over western Tennessee will 
glance the area before scattered daytime cumulus around 45000 feet 
form around 051500z.
