Updated for aviation forecast discussion.

Short term...(tonight through Saturday night) 
issued at 252 PM CST Thursday Nov 27 2014 


Models remain relatively consistent in their depiction during the 
short term, thus confidence is higher than average through 
Saturday night. 


Clouds have been in abundance this Thanksgiving day, with the 
exception of a few breaks here and there. Visible satellite shows 
the back edge of the sky cover near the Mississippi River as of 
mid afternoon. Forecast models indicate this clearing trend should 
continue to progress eastward across the remainder of the region 
through the late afternoon and early evening. As high pressure 
moves in and winds subside, temperatures should quickly drop well 
into the 20s tonight. Some mid level clouds are forecast to stream 
through later in the night, but this should have little impact on 
temperatures. 


Friday will be warmer than today (but still cold) with much more 
sunshine expected. Look for afternoon highs in the mid to upper 
40s. A substantial modification in temperatures will occur over 
the weekend as the upper flow pattern becomes zonal and low level 
southerly winds increase. Unfortunately, the weekend looks to be 
shrouded in cloud cover as models indicate a rapid moistening of 
the atmosphere below 850 mb late Friday night and early Saturday 
morning. With the abundant low level moisture and weak isentropic 
lift, some light rain or drizzle activity will be possible by 
Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. The period will also be 
characterized by a non-diurnal temperature trend as temperatures 
stage a slow warming trend from late Friday evening into Sunday. 


Long term...(sunday through thursday) 
issued at 252 PM CST Thursday Nov 27 2014 


Forecast confidence fairly good through Wednesday, but beyond that 
not good through the remainder of the period. Even so, there are a 
number of precipitation possibilities during the period, all of them 
being of the liquid variety except for Monday morning. Details to 
follow. 


With the approach of a cold frontal boundary, precipitation chances 
increase slightly on Sunday. Location of the boundary by 6 PM Sunday 
afternoon still slightly different with the GFS being a tad faster, 
but the end result should be similar pop-wise. 


With the passage of the front, Sunday night into Monday morning both 
the GFS and the European model (ecmwf) generate a NE-SW band of precipitation along 
and behind the front, but due to placement differences of the 
boundary, the quantitative precipitation forecast placement differs as well. As the colder air 
filters in behind the front, late Sunday night/early Monday morning 
precipitation may fall as freezing rain over the far western and 
northwestern sections of our County Warning Area where temperatures may briefly drop 
to freezing. With there being some uncertainty with temperatures, 
just went with a mix of rain/freezing rain there. Any ice 
accumulations are expected to be minor at best. 1000-850mb critical 
thicknesses would indicate more of a snow/sleet scenario, but after 
looking at a number of BUFKIT and AWIPS soundings, don't see enough 
moisture in the ice nucleation layer for snow or sleet. As 
temperatures warm slightly Monday afternoon, expect precipitation to 
be all liquid. 


Precipitation chances may linger Monday evening over the southeast 
sections of our cwa, but beyond that through midday Tuesday the 
region should remain dry. The development of a wave on the 
aforementioned frontal boundary to our south may produce minor 
overrunning precipitation Tuesday afternoon and evening, so have 
schc probability of precipitation there. 


From this point through the end of the period models still at odds 
with each other and couldn't be more different. On Wednesday the 
GFS, as a result of a developing system over the plains, brings the 
front to our south back across the area as a warm front but with 
limited moisture. With the approach of the plains system it then 
paints small precipitation chances over the far western and 
northwestern sections of the County Warning Area Wednesday night into Thursday. 
During the same time frame, the European model (ecmwf) pushes the frontal boundary 
off to the southeast US and brings a huge area of high pressure over 
the area with no sign of an upstream system. It's going to be 
interesting to see how this one pans out. Thanks to all of the 
surrounding offices for their collaboration and input.

Aviation... 
issued at 520 PM CST Thursday Nov 27 2014 


Clearing has taken place at kcgi/kpah and it might be another hour 
or two before we get rid of the clouds in our eastern taf sites. A 
band of mid level clouds will stream overhead tonight as weak warm 
advection develops on the back side of departing high pressure. 
This will pave the way for VFR conditions and more sunshine on 
Friday. Northwest winds this afternoon will become light and 
variable tonight as the high moves through. Winds will become 
southerly on the back side of the high Friday.
