NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
439 PM EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Update... 
aviation section updated 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 307 PM EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


A weak frontal system is expected to drop into the area this 
weekend. This front will dissipate by Monday...resulting in high 
pressure building into the area for most of next week. 


&& 


Near term /rest of this afternoon through tonight/... 


Issued at 307 PM EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Spotty scattered showers covering the northwest half of the forecast 
area are having a tough time reaching the surface in many area as 
the low levels of the atmosphere remain fairly dry. Even though lift 
and instability will increase through 22z late this 
afternoon...chances of widespread rain reaching the surface remain 
questionable. Taking this drier trend into consideration have backed 
off slightly on probability of precipitation for the rest of this afternoon and into the 
evening and gone with scattered showers with isolated to slight 
chances of thunderstorms. 


A blend of MOS for lows tonight appears reasonable given the cloud 
and precipitation chances. Lows middle to upper 60s. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Tuesday/... 


Issued at 307 PM EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


A weak surface front will continue to settle into the local area on 
Sunday. This will serve to keep the potential for scattered showers 
and thunderstorms across the area through Sunday night. Will keep 
chance probability of precipitation going for now...though lowered probability of precipitation significantly early 
on Sunday as lift and instability both are limited from 06z-15z 
Sunday. 


On Monday most of the guidance shows the forecast area as 
dry...except for the NAM which brings a wave through the area on 
Monday afternoon. For now this appears to be an outlier...so will 
keep Monday and Monday night dry and monitor model trends. 


Projected low level thicknesses suggest the slightly warmer mav MOS 
temperature guidance looks more realistic given recent warmer trends 
so trended closer to these values as opposed to the generally 
cooler NAM MOS. 


High pressure with dry and warmer temperatures are in store for 
Tuesday...perhaps the warmest of the 7 day forecast period with 
highs forecast from the middle 80s to near 90. More humid dew points in 
the upper 60s and low 70s will push heat indices to the low 90s. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Saturday/... 
issued at 227 PM EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


An upper level ridge will cover much of the United States east of 
The Rockies...with a broad area of high pressure over the southeast. 
Multiple upper level waves will ride over the top of the ridge 
keeping daily chances for showers and thunderstorms in the forecast 
through Friday. Dry weather will return for the beginning of the 
weekend. This is supported by regional initialization. 


Temperatures look to be slightly above seasonal normals with 
afternoon highs in the upper 80s and overnight lows in the upper 
60s. 


&& 


Aviation /previous discussion below/... 


VFR conditions expected to continue the next several hours. Will 
continue vcsh mention as short wave aloft is expected to push 
across Indiana through at last 04-05z. Ongoing taf handles this 
well and not major changes made. 


Previous discussion below 


/discussion for 291800z taf issuance/... 


Issued at 102 PM EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Mostly VFR conditions expected. A weak front will move through the 
sites this evening/tonight and there are some isolated to widely 
scattered showers and storms ahead of it. However looking 
upstream and at development forecast from hi res models it does 
not look like thunderstorms will impact most of the sites. At this 
point the best chances appear to be at klaf closest to the best 
forcing and may include a thunderstorms in the vicinity there for a few hours in the 
evening but elsewhere will just include a vcsh with probability of 
thunder just too low to include. 


Near daybreak could see a few hours of MVFR fog at the outlying 
sites.
