NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
300 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Update... 
the synopsis...near term and short term sections have been updated below. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 300 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


After a brief break tonight and Friday...active weather is 
expected to continue into weekend across central Indiana. 


Weak high pressure over the Great Lakes is expected to build 
across Indiana tonight...pushing a cold front south to Kentucky. 
This will result in dry weather tonight and again on Friday. 


Low pressure is then expected to develop over the Central Plains 
and push the warm front back north across central Indiana on 
Saturday. This will bring chances for showers and thunderstorms 
back to the forecast. 


Yet another low pressure system is expected to pass along the 
cold front and across central Indiana on Sunday...bringing yet 
more chances for showers and storms. 


Dry weather with cooler than normal temperatures are expected 
through most of the first half of next week. A cold front will 
provide the next chance for rain and storms next Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 


Issued at 300 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Surface analysis early this afternoon shows low pressure over 
souther central Indiana...lingering along a frontal boundary that 
stretches from eastern Iowa to southern Ohio and West Virginia. 
Radar shows that scattered light rain showers/thunderstorms developing 
across central Indiana...along and near the boundary. 


Given latest radar trends hrrr seems a bit over aggressive with 
precipitation this afternoon and early evening...however the overall 
trend appears in place with scattered diurnal convection along and near 
the boundary lifting northward through the late afternoon and 
precipitation diminishing during the evening. Forecast soundings show middle 
level capping building during the evening hours...which should 
inhibit precipitation. However...forecast soundings and time 
height sections continue to suggest saturated lower levels with 
dry air aloft and subsidence. This could lead to some drizzle or 
fog during the overnight hours...however any precipitation should 
be rather light...will try and have minimal probability of precipitation to no probability of precipitation. Thus 
will trend lows warmer than mavmos given the expected clouds. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Sunday/... 


Issued at 300 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Forecast soundings on Friday suggest convective temperatures in the 
upper 70s with a good middle level cap in place. Time height sections 
show saturated lower levels with subsidence aloft. Thus will trend 
toward a partly sunny sky. With light north-northwest flow in 
place...convective temperatures are not expected to be reached. Thus will 
trend toward a blend on lows. 


Clouds are expected to increase on Friday night as southerly flow 
develops across central Indiana due to low pressure developing in 
the Central Plains states. Forecast soundings suggest an 
overrunning pattern overnight...however best forcing looks to 
arrive after 12z Sat. Thus will trend toward cloud sky on Friday 
night...along with lows warmer than mavmos. 


Better forcing arrives on Saturday as a short wave is expected to 
push toward Indiana from the southwest. 305k isentropic surface 
shows excellent upglide on Saturday with specific humidities over 
5 g/kg. Forecast soundings indicate a deeply saturated column by 
18z. Thus will trend toward high probability of precipitation along with temperatures 
cooler than mavmos given expected rain. 


Additional short waves are look poised to push across Indiana and 
the Ohio Valley on Saturday night and again on Sunday afternoon 
and evening. Model continue to suggest that the lingering frontal boundary 
will remain in the area through Sunday. Thus will continue to use 
probability of precipitation at or above mavmos and trend highs cooler and lows warmer 
than guidance. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 


Issued at 217 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


As the long term begins a front will be exiting the area and an 
upper shortwave will be moving through. Could see some rain 
showers hanging around given this. With the front to the south 
will keep thunder out of the area. High pressure will build in 
after that and should see mostly dry weather Monday through 
Tuesday. By Wednesday another frontal system could bring a chance 
for showers. Models disagree on instability with that system so 
will keep a slight chance for thunderstorms. Temperatures should 
be near normal with highs in the middle to upper 60s and lows in the 
middle to upper 40s. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for 281800z taf issuance/... 


Issued at 110 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Generally MVFR to VFR conditions at the sites over the next few 
hours with ceilings improving during that time outside of showers 
and storms. That said there will be scattered showers and some 
storms developing around the sites for the next couple of hours 
based on recent trends...forecast low level lapse rates and radar 
trends. A front will remain relatively stationary over the 
area...moving a little bit north this afternoon and then sinking 
south again tonight. As the front sinks south IFR and worse 
conditions can be expected north of the front. Low confidence on 
exactly where it will end up...but at this time looks like klaf 
will have the worst conditions with LIFR or lower ceilings...kind 
dropping to IFR or lower...and khuf and kbmg being on the edge and 
possibly south of low ceilings and visibilities. By middle morning 
Friday should see improvement in the overnight conditions.
