NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
1210 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


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


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 256 am EDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


An upper trough and cold front will bring rain to central Indiana 
early this morning which will diminish through the day. After a 
brief break thanks to high pressure on Wednesday...another frontal 
system will bring more rain chances Thursday through Saturday. This 
week will see near to above average temperatures give way to below 
average numbers by the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /rest of today/... 


Issued at 942 am EDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Update... 
a few showers with isolated lightning strikes from last night/S 
event are currently lingering across the far southeast 
counties...but should exit the area completely within an hour. 
Lowered probability of precipitation from likely to chance over the southern areas for the 
remainder of this morning...but did not want to go any lower than 
chance probability of precipitation at this time since current radar is showing some re- 
development west of the forecast area and over the southwest 
counties of central Indiana. 


Time cross sections are showing a much drier air column after Tuesday 
18z...which is reflected well by current forecast. So...no changes 
to this afternoon/S forecast. Currently temperatures across the area are 
in the middle to upper 60s and should still have a good chance of 
topping off in the low 80s this afternoon with a rapidly drying 
air column. 


Previous discussion... 
after 12z will continue likely probability of precipitation far south but taper to chance 
probability of precipitation across the northern forecast area. Forcing will weaken during 
the day as upper jet shifts east and cold front sinks south through 
the area. Will gradually lower probability of precipitation through the day...with most 
areas dry by middle afternoon. 


For temperatures trended toward the cooler met MOS with clouds and 
rain this morning helping keep temperatures down. 


&& 


Short term.../tonight through Thursday night/ 
issued at 256 am EDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Focus is on any chances for rain through the period. Models are 
close enough that a blend can be used. 


Weak high pressure will build in tonight and provide dry conditions. 
Mav may be overdoing extent of drier air that works into the area 
since flow remains more zonal. Will go warmer than mav MOS for lows 
some areas...especially north. 


On Wednesday the weak high will remain in control for most of the 
day...but the old front will begin to move northeast as a warm front 
later in the day. Forcing and moisture appear to be too limited to 
mention probability of precipitation across the area. Took a blend of MOS for highs. 


Wednesday night the warm front will move into the area but again 
forcing doesn/T look that impressive. Sref probability of precipitation are low so will keep 
the forecast area dry. 


Weak forcing will continue on Thursday with the front in the area. 
Not sure that anything will develop and sref probability of precipitation are again 
low...but since most of the area already had probability of precipitation in did not want to 
flip-flop. Went slight chance probability of precipitation. 


Thursday night will be dry as an approaching cold front will remain 
far enough northwest to not have an impact on the area. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 


Issued at 250 am EDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


The weekend will start off with warm...humid and unsettled weather 
and then transition to cooler and dry weather late in the weekend 
and through early next week. 


Regional blend good chance probability of precipitation look good Friday and Friday night 
with probability of precipitation decreasing north behind the front on Saturday. 


Afternoon highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s Friday expected to 
drop off markedly to the 70s by Saturday. 


&& 


Aviation /updated discussion for 021500z taf update/... 


Issued at 1208 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


MVFR ceilings should give way to VFR conditions by middle afternoon 
as drier air slowly enters the area. Scattered showers will 
continue until an approaching cold front passes by late afternoon. 


With all the overnight and morning rain...and light to calm winds 
and some clearing tonight...should see some fog. 
However...confidence in specific categories and timing are not great 
this early in the game. For now...went MVFR at ind and laf and IFR 
at huf and bmg after 06z. Also hinted at possibility of low ceilings 
with scattered low deck.

Ind watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
