NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
742 am EDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


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


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 316 am EDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


A pleasant and quiet start to the weekend is expected across 
central Indiana before ending on a stormy note. 


High pressure over the region will slowly drift east today. This 
will result in dry and pleasant weather for the first half of the 
day. A low pressure system is expected to arrive in Indiana from the 
lower Mississippi River valley on Sunday. This will bring rain 
chances to our state late Saturday night and rain will be likely on 
Sunday. Cooler northwest flow will be in place as the low departs to 
the northeast on Monday. A few lingering showers will be possible as 
the next work week resumes. 


&& 


Near term /today/... 


Issued at 316 am EDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Conditions this hour do not look very favorable for even widespread 
patchy fog development...despite the calm winds and clear skies the 
atmosphere near the surface is still too dry. So removed the 
widespread patchy fog mention from the forecast from now. It 
certainly may occur in many locales just not enough to warrant 
mention in this morning/S forecast at this time. 


Today will be another very pleasant and warm day...albeit not as 
sunny...especially later in the afternoon as the middle and upper level 
clouds spread into the area ahead of a low pressure system. Despite 
the clouds and light southeasterly flow did not go very far above 
guidance for highs...generally went with a reasonable blend of the 
higher mav/mex to the lower met for widespread highs in the upper 
70s. For now keeping kind under the 80 degree mark. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Monday night/... 


Issued at 316 am EDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Guidance is in fairly good agreement through this period so 
generally went with a blend. As mentioned in near term the clouds 
will seriously be increase by early this evening as the low pressure 
system and upper low over the Southern Plains begin to move toward 
Indiana. Forecast soundings this evening and even into early tonight 
still look on the dry side so continued this trend of delaying the 
arrival of precipitation...until much closer to Sunday morning...around 
08-10z do the probability of precipitation get more measurable chances...especially across 
the southwest counties first. 


Then the bulk of the precipitation looks to be on Sunday...between the 
hours of 12-00z with the hours of 12-18z especially targeting the 
County Warning Area with moderate rain showers and some weak thunderstorms. Cape and 
instability appears rather weak...so severe not expected but an 
isolated rumble of thunder cannot be ruled out. Then trended high 
temperatures below guidance given expected clouds and rain during 
the day. 


As the low departs from the region Sunday night probability of precipitation will decrease 
steadily through the night and even a few lingering chances will 
remain into during the day Monday...then dry by Monday 
evening/night. Cooler temperature in store for the beginning of the 
work week. MOS blend yielding only highs in the low 60s. And this 
generally looks to be the temperature trend moving into next week. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday night/... 


Issued at 336 am EDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


A broad low pressure system over the Great Lakes region will 
dominate the duration of the extended period. This will result in 
a cooler pattern across central Indiana along with periods of rain 
showers. Models seem to agree on a dry forecast for Tuesday...but 
inconsistencies in guidance after that result in precipitation 
chances no higher than slight from Wednesday through Friday night. 
As a result...will not make any deviations from latest regional 
initialization. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 18/1200z taf issuance/... 


Issued at 730 am EDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Middle and high level clouds will increase this afternoon ahead of 
approaching low pressure system...but conditions will remain VFR 
well into tonight. Onset of showers/thunderstorms should start 
between the sun 09-12z time frame...that is when conditions will 
deteriorate to MVFR category. As rain becomes more widespread... 
ceilings will drop to IFR category at kind around sun 15z. 


Winds will be light and southeasterly today...but are expected to 
increase this evening to 12 to 14 kts through remainder of taf 
period.
