NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
714 PM EDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


Update... 


The aviation section has been updated below. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 306 PM EDT Sat Apr 30 2016 


An upper low...over southern Colorado and northern New Mexico...will 
gradually head northeast toward the Ohio Valley this weekend as a 
warm front lifts north into southern Indiana late Saturday. These 
features will interact with increasing moisture and result in 
showers overspreading central Indiana by early Saturday. It will dry 
out early next week before a pair of cold fronts bring more showers 
to the area by Wednesday. 


With widespread cloud cover and showers...temperatures will be below 
normal through early next week. After that...look for normal to 
slightly below temperatures through late next week. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 
issued at 306 PM EDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


The main focus tonight will be on probability of precipitation as models have differences on 
how far northeastward widespread showers will get. 


Models agree that southwestern upper low will move northeast to 
northwestern Kansas and southwestern Nebraska by 12z Saturday. Upper 
winds will then back in response across the Mississippi Valley and 
result in southern states stationary front returning north to near a 
Sikeston Missouri to Chattanooga line by 12z. Models all showing 
isentropic lift at the 305k level north of the front along with 
upper impulses ejecting northeast around the base of the upper low 
and into the Ohio Valley. Condensation pressure deficits along with 
latest radar trends and rapid refresh all favor the faster 12z 
deterministic European model (ecmwf)...NAM and Gem over the slower 12z GFS. This 
would bring widespread showers to all but the far northeastern parts 
of the forecast by daybreak. 


Instability forecasts favor leaving thunder out tonight. 


With showers overspreading the area...favor temperatures at or 
slightly below similar 12z MOS. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Monday/... 
issued at 306 PM EDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


The main focus for the short term will be on rainfall tomorrow. 
However...there is also a potential for thunderstorms tomorrow 
afternoon and evening...especially across the southern half where 
some could be severe. 


Models all agree that a warm front will be lifting into southwestern 
Indiana late Saturday. The front along with several shortwaves 
ejecting northeast in the southwest upper flow around the base of 
the Central Plains upper low will interact with deep moisture and 
modestly increasing afternoon instability. This will result in 
showers overspreading all of central Indiana from southwest to 
northeast on Saturday. This period should be the wettest period as 
indicated by the 12 hour quantitative precipitation forecast ending 00z Sunday. Model blend has near 
three quarters of an inch on Saturday with storm total rainfall over 
an inch from tonight through Sunday. 


Thunderstorms are possible...especially during the afternoon 
tomorrow and south of Interstate 74. The Storm Prediction Center has 
placed much of this area in a marginal risk of severe weather for 
day2. There is even a sliver of a slight risk across extreme 
southwestern Knox County. This seems reasonable with modest 
instability but good shear as a 40-50 knot low level jet will move 
across the area during the afternoon and evening and an 85 knot 250 
millibar jet streak will move to the Wabash valley. 


Should see the shower coverage decrease overnight Saturday night as 
the low level jet and deeper moisture shift northeast into the 
eastern Great Lakes and the Allegheny plateau. 


The showers and thunderstorms will be picking up once again on 
Sunday as the slow moving upper low is absorbed into an eastern 
Canada trough...the front camps out over south central Indiana and 
instability increases due to middle level drying and steep middle level 
lapse rates. The showers should be ending overnight Sunday night 
from northwest to southeast as the frontal system and upper trough 
move east and Canadian high pressure settles southeast. 


Stayed close to or slightly below the below normal model blend 
temperatures Saturday and Sunday due to extensive cloud cover and 
showers. Afternoon highs should remain below normal on Monday 
despite some sunshine as the area will be in northeast low level 
flow around the high. Finally...will go with near or above blend for 
overnight lows due to thick cloud cover. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
issued at 239 PM EDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


The long term starts out dry with an upper wave sliding west and 
then south of the area. On Wednesday an upper wave will move 
through Indiana bringing chances for showers with it. As it moves 
out Wednesday night could see some light showers hang around in 
the wraparound of the low. At this time doesn/T appear to be 
much if any instability through the long term so will not include 
any thunder...and aside from Wednesday any forcing appears minimal 
so nothing greater than slight chances included. Temperatures look 
near normal in the middle to upper 60s for highs and 40s to low 50s 
for lows. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 30/00z tafs/... 
issued at 714 PM EDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


VFR conditions have returned to all but laf early this evening...and 
laf will become VFR in the next few hours. Expect VFR conditions 
much of the night...with conditions deteriorating in showers and 
thunderstorms Saturday morning. 


Low pressure will allow showers and perhaps thunderstorms to 
overspread the area Saturday morning. Expect deteriorating 
conditions after around daybreak time frame Saturday...with IFR 
conditions likely from midday Onward. Embedded thunderstorms will be 
a threat...and will include thunderstorms in the vicinity at all sites. 


Winds will be a bit variable at first...becoming more northeasterly 
and then east/southeasterly with time. Winds Saturday will likely be 
sustained around 10-13kt with gusts to around 20kt.
