NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
642 PM EDT Friday Aug 1 2014 


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


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 234 PM EDT Friday Aug 1 2014 


An upper level disturbance across northern Illinois will move east 
southeast across our region tonight and Saturday resulting with 
scattered showers and thunderstorms. This upper disturbance will 
move on to the east Saturday night and weak high pressure will build 
across our region Sunday and Monday. 


In the long term...chances for showers and thunderstorms will 
increase once again as a frontal system moves south into our region 
Tuesday and Wednesday and then stalling near the Ohio River Thursday 
and then moving back to the north on Friday. 


&& 


Near term /tonight and Saturday/... 
issued 234 PM EDT Friday Aug 1 2014 


Radar indicated scattered thunderstorms have developed across 
Northwest Indiana as well as central and northeast Illinois. This 
is in response to an upper level disturbance over northern 
Illinois. Models indicate this upper level disturbance will move 
east southeast across the northern and the east central parts of our 
region later tonight. 


One question is how much of this convection will continue after 
sunset as it has been quite diurnal last few days. Both the NAM and 
GFS keep some convection across the northern and central parts of 
our region tonight as the upper trough sharpens up. It may be a bit 
overdone...but nerveless will keep probability of precipitation in chance category over 
northern and central sections this evening and east central parts 
into late tonight per models. In other areas showers should diminish 
late tonight. 


On Saturday expect scattered showers and thunderstorms over eastern 
and central sections and widely scattered thunderstorms elsewhere. 
There may be some increase with daytime heating...but at the same 
time the upper disturbance will be moving on east into Ohio. 


In regards to temperatures went with a MOS blend most areas 
tonight. Will keep northeast areas at or above 60 with more clouds 
there later tonight. 


On Saturday prefer the cooler met temperatures over central and 
western areas and went with a MOS blend in the east. The met has 74 
for a high at Muncie...while the mav is 82. More clouds in the east 
could hold temperatures down there a little more...but 74 seems a 
bit too cool. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday/... 
issued at 234 PM EDT Friday Aug 1 2014 


Showers will quickly end Saturday evening...for now will continue 
slight chance probability of precipitation in the east Saturday evening. Otherwise...dry all 
areas rest of the short term as weak high pressure builds across our 
region. A cold front will be moving into the southern Great Lakes on 
Monday...but it should be still far enough to the north for US to 
remain dry. 


Model soundings indicate mostly clear conditions will be the rule as 
air mass becomes a little drier and heights rise a little. 850 mb 
temperatures warm up only about a degree Sunday and Monday as models 
keep a weak thermal trough across our region. Overall a MOS blend 
blend on temperatures seem reasonable with highs in the lower to 
middle 80s both days and lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
issued at 234 PM EDT Friday Aug 1 2014 


After a dry spell ensembles hinting at central Indiana possibly 
returning to a wetter pattern as high pressure moves off the east 
Monday/Monday night and is replaced by an upper trough that will 
slowly shift eastward through Thursday with several upper waves 
moving through this feature that could produce chances for showers 
and thunderstorms. There is not a lot of consistency and timing to 
this latest solution so confidence is low...and therefore left probability of precipitation 
at low end chance most times. Models hinting at a more significant 
cold frontal passage toward the end of the period but timing differs 
amongst the guidance. Allblend is carrying slightly higher probability of precipitation 
toward the end of the work week...with 20-30 percent chances leading 
up to Thursday. Temperatures will be back around the normal range 
for this time of year...low to middle 80s highs for highs and lows in 
the middle to upper 60s. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 020000z tafs/... 
issued at 642 PM EDT Friday Aug 1 2014 


Widely scattered convection is slowly diminishing with time as 
increased middle level cloud and outflows are beginning to cut down 
on heating. May not need to carry any explicit mention of thunder in 
the forecast anymore...but will monitor trends up to issuance time. 
Appears the highest threat for convection may be at 
kind/kbmg...where outflows/cloud cover really Haven/T had much of an 
impact on instability yet. 


Regardless...any lingering convection expected to diminish with 
sunset. However with short term models suggesting the passage of an 
upper disturbance...there will probably be a low threat for 
convection over the taf sites most of the night. 


Low confidence in visibility forecast. From a synoptic 
standpoint...conditions quite favorable for fog formation with 
little gradient and relatively narrow temperature/dewpoint spreads 
for this time of day. Negative factor will be rather extensive 
middle/high level cloud cover associated with the passage of the upper 
wave. Best chance of IFR restrictions appears to be in the klaf 
area...where there has been quite a bit of rainfall. Will go with 
IFR restrictions there after 020700z...but keep the other taf sites 
above IFR for now.
