NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
1141 PM EST Friday Dec 19 2014 


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


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 205 PM EST Friday Dec 19 2014 


A high pressure system will dominate Indiana weather into Sunday as 
its center shifts from the middle Mississippi Valley to New England. 


From Monday into Thursday the most important influence on Hoosier 
weather is going to be a low pressure system. This system is 
forecast to start developing over the plains late in the weekend. It 
is expected to head east...gaining strength as it does. 


By Tuesday morning low pressure will have arrived in the upper 
Mississippi Valley. By Wednesday it is expected to be 
very...very...strong and centered over southern Ontario. Late 
Christmas day its influence on Indiana will weaken as it heads into 
Quebec. 


Friday our weather is predicted come under the influence of another 
low pressure system coming from the plains. 


&& 


Near term /rest of tonight/... 


Issued at 956 PM EST Friday Dec 19 2014 


Upper wave moving in from Missouri is producing cooling cloud tops 
and weak echoes upstream that are beginning to move into southwest 
Indiana but nothing is yet reaching the ground in Indiana. 
Hrrr/rap/nam12 are all showing this wave producing small quantitative precipitation forecast 
amounts across the southern counties. Given the satellite 
signature will go ahead and add chances for snow across the 
southern counties with up to a couple tenths of an inch possible 
starting after 6z and moving out of the area by 12z. Also 
increased cloud cover based on satellite and with this in mind 
increased low temperatures by a few degrees as well. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday/... 


Issued at 205 PM EST Friday Dec 19 2014 


All the models agree it will be dry through Sunday night with a 
chance of rain Monday as a warm front develops over the area. Clouds 
and temperatures are the main forecast issues. 


Saturday night we should move to the west side of a weak surface 
ridge. This will give a chance to scour out the low level moisture 
that has been persistent recently. However as that happens warm 
advection aloft should cause middle level cloudiness. We can expect 
cloudy weather to continue. 


The result is going to be dampened temperature changes...although 
not quite to extent as earlier in the week since the clouds should 
be middle level as opposed to low level. Guidance temperates may be 
OK Saturday night considering what daytime readings will be. After 
that the cooler met looks better for Sunday and the warmer mav 
for Sunday night. 


On Monday strong warm advection will counteract thickening clouds and 
possibly rain as a warm front forms over US. Temperatures could 
surge into the 50s or stay in the 40s depending on how things come 
together. A consensus between the mex and the European guidance 
will be used. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Thursday night/... 


Issued at 235 PM EST Friday Dec 19 2014 


The main focus of the long term period will be a storm system 
prognosticated to hit central Indiana over the Christmas Holiday. 


Models are in decent consensus for that far out in the forecast. 
Euro and GFS both indicate a rather strong cut-off low centered 
over the northern plains on Monday night with significant ridging 
over the West Coast. Precipitation will be in the forecast for the 
duration of long term period...but in the form of rain from Monday 
night through Tuesday night as warm advection at the surface moves 
in ahead of the upper system. As associated cold front moves in on 
Tuesday night...rain will slowly transition to a rain/snow mix. 
Precipitation chances are currently in the 50 to 60 percent range...but 
anticipate these chances to increase in coming days. At this 
time...best vorticity maxima should move through the forecast area 
on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. At that point...the colder air 
will start filtering into central Indiana...but since best 
dynamics will already be to the east of forecast area...do not 
expect high snow accumulations at this time. Nonetheless...gusty 
west winds could still result in blowing snow and travel hazards 
on Wednesday and Thursday. 


Those with travel plans during this time period are encouraged to 
stay tuned in the coming days. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 200600z taf issuance/... 


Issued at 1200 am EST Sat Dec 20 2014 


An inversion will continue to trap moisture near the 
surface...resulting in MVFR conditions for duration of taf period. 
Guidance is still hinting at some low end VFR by this 
afternoon...however based on persistence the last 5 days...believe 
this is very optimistic and unrealistic...and even if this does 
happen at a few of the sites it will be brief and all terminals 
will return to mfvr by the early evening. 


Winds will be light and variable.

Ind watches/warnings/advisories...
