NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
320 am EDT Friday Apr 25 2014 


Update... 
long term section has been updated below. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 307 am EDT Friday Apr 25 2014 


A low pressure system is expected to push across the area this 
morning. In the wake of this system...high pressure will generally 
be in control through most of the weekend. A large and slow moving 
low pressure system is expected to affect the area over the early to 
middle parts of next week. 


&& 


Near term /today/... 
issued at 307 am EDT Friday Apr 25 2014 


Upper trough currently over Illinois expected to move across the 
local area later this morning...exiting the state around midday. 
Fairly widespread rain ahead of this feature. Will keep rather high 
probability of precipitation going through about midday...with the highest probability of precipitation in the east. 
Lapse rates remain marginal for some embedded convection over the 
southern zones through about sunrise. Not too much in the way of 
cloud cover behind this system...so think skies should clear out 
later this afternoon. 


Low level thicknesses today generally support the GFS MOS highs...so 
will not stray too far from them. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Sunday night/... 
issued at 307 am EDT Friday Apr 25 2014 


Model data suggest upper ridging will build across the area during 
this period as a deep trough develops over the plains. Appears a 
weak front will drop south through the area on Saturday. There are 
some weak signals in the model data for a precipitation threat with 
this front late tonight into Saturday...but overall lift/deep 
moisture looks meager...so will keep things dry through Saturday for 
now. 


By Sunday...it appears upper ridge axis may be far enough east to 
allow for precipitation from the plains system to move into the 
area. Most of the ensemble data suggest precipitation threat won't 
arrive until late Sunday afternoon or Sunday night...so will 
restrict the probability of precipitation to those time periods. If the upper ridge holds 
longer than expected...probability of precipitation may delayed. 


Based on prognosticated low level thickness values...the GFS MOS 
temperature guidance through the short term looks reasonable for the 
most part...so only planning minor adjustments. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
issued at 320 am EDT Friday Apr 25 2014 


A large upper low will move slowly east from the plains to the Great 
Lakes during the long term bringing unsettled weather to central 
Indiana. Models also move a surface low from the plains early Monday 
to our region by Tuesday night and into the Great Lakes by day 7. 
This will result in unsettled weather much of the period. It looks 
like Monday and Monday night will be quite wet with another wave of 
precipitation moving in by Tuesday night. 


Several models indicate a lull in rain chances around Wednesday 
night as dry slot temporarily moves into our region followed by 
increasing chances of rain showers Thursday from the upper low. 


Models continue to trend a little warmer Monday through Wednesday 
and went a few degrees Above All blend temperatures. By Thursday 
temperatures will be a little below normal. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for 250600z taf issuance/... 
issued at 1250 am EDT Friday Apr 25 2014 


AWIPS distance speed tool suggests large area of showers will be 
across all of the terminals by issuance time. Observational trends 
and model relative humidity time sections also suggest flying conditions will be 
mostly MVFR and possibly IFR before the showers end by 12z at huf 
and laf and by 14z at ind and bmg with a cold frontal passage. 23z 
rapid refresh radar reflectivity forecasts look to handle the evolution 
of the showers well. Then...conditions should improve back to VFR 
with only scattered afternoon cumulus and then an increase in ac after 
00z Saturday. Lightning trends and only weak instability suggest 
leaving out thunder mention overnight. 




Southeast winds 10 to 15 knots will become south early and west and 
gusting to 20 knots or more with the frontal passage. 
Finally...winds will become light from the southwest after 00z 
Saturday as high pressure settles across the Ohio Valley.
