NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
1009 am EDT Thursday Oct 2 2014 


Update... 
the near term section has been updated below. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 213 am EDT Thursday Oct 2 2014 


An active weather day is store today. Showers and thunderstorms 
are possible for the remainder of the morning as a warm front 
,lifts across the region. As morning rains exit and diminish in 
coverage... arm and more humid southerly flow will return this 
afternoon. This will result in more above normal temperatures 
today. 


A strong cold front will push toward central Indiana tonight and 
pass across the state early on Friday. Showers and thunderstorms will 
accompany the front...resulting in stormy weather tonight and 
Friday. Gusty west winds are expected on Friday in the wake of the front. 


Much colder air will arrive in the area by Saturday as a cold 
Canadian air mass settles over the Ohio Valley for the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /rest of today/... 
issued at 1009 am EDT Thursday Oct 2 2014 


Remnant overnight convection has moved into the region this 
morning...mainly impacting areas along and north of I-70. Precipitation 
being aided by a warm front lifting through the forecast area at 
this time. Clouds and rain holding most temperatures down...with 13z 
temperatures in the 60s. 


Ongoing activity this morning along with newer short range 
guidance will facilitate changes to the forecast for the morning 
update. Low level jet noted in the flow appears to be assisting 
convection from the Wabash Valley West into central Illinois. This 
feature will shift northeast with the warm front into early 
afternoon...and should see precipitation likewise shift northeast and 
decrease in coverage. Will focus highest probability of precipitation to the northwest of 
the indy metropolitan through 18z. Still likely to be a relative lull in 
convective coverage until late afternoon as storm complex over 
Missouri approaches from the west. Will bring probability of precipitation back up late... 
with bulk of the more widespread rainfall still slated to arrive 
tonight with the cold front. 


Other big change this morning is to forecast highs as abundance of 
cloud cover will limit temperature rises much more than previously 
thought. While still likely to see some sun into the afternoon 
south of I-70...expect a lot of clouds further north. Dropped 
highs 5-7 degrees over the northern half of the forecast area where 
temperatures will remain under 80. Will watch trends as may need to lower 
these temperatures even further. Further south...presence of sun and warm 
advection south of the boundary should still enable locations to 
climb into the lower 80s with perhaps a few locations approaching 85 
degrees along our southern border. 


Zone and grid updates out. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Saturday night/... 


Issued at 213 am EDT Thursday Oct 2 2014 


GFS and NAM are in pretty good agreement with the overall pattern 
and will use a blend. The main focus of this period will be the 
frontal passage tonight. 


Numerous ingredients coming together for rain tonight. By 00z 
Friday the GFS 305k isentropic surface shows broad lift across 
the area with specific humidities over 9 g/kg. Upper support is 
plentiful as the deep trough over the Central Plains is poised to 
push toward Indiana overnight providing plenty of upper support. 
Forecast soundings show plenty of deep moisture available. Lower 
level q vector convergence is also favorable. Thus will trend 
toward 100 probability of precipitation tonight. As for temperatures will trend at or above 
mavmos as the cold frontal passage does not appear to occur until 
after 12z Friday. 


The strong cold front is expected to pass on Friday morning. Much 
dryer air arrives as isentropic lift is lost by 18z along with the 
access to moist air long the isentropic surface. Forecast 
soundings begin to dry out as strong cold air advection begins. 
Will aim for steady or slowly falling temperatures through the day 
with daytime highs at or shortly after 12z. Will continue with 
high probability of precipitation as ongoing rain ahead of the front is expected during 
the first few hours after 12z. Will trend probability of precipitation lower as the day 
progresses. 


Also notable on Friday is the strong lower level pressure 
gradient that will be in place across the area. This should result 
in gusty winds on Friday and Friday night. 


For Friday night through Saturday night the GFS and NAM suggest 
strong trough will be in place aloft over the Great Lakes and Ohio 
Valley. Strong cold air advection will continue on Friday night 
and into Saturday as 850mb temperatures fall to below -4c and 
thicknesses fall to below 535. Forecast soundings through the 
period show attainable convective temperatures amid a broad cyclonic 
flow. Thus cannot rule out a stray shower during the day on 
Saturday. With all the cold air advection...forecast soundings 
also showing signs of winter like trapped stratocu beneath a middle 
level inversion. Thus will try to keep a mention of a sprinkle or 
low chance pop on Saturday. As for temperatures...given the strong cold air 
advection...will be trending colder at most times during the 
period. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 


Issued at 213 am EDT Thursday Oct 2 2014 


Ensembles indicate a deep upper trough over the eastern parts of the 
country at the beginning of the extended will gradually lift off to 
the northeast...leaving relatively zonal flow over the local area by 
the middle of next week. 


Ensembles continue to key in a potential upper disturbance that will 
drop southeast into the area in the Sunday or Monday time frame. 
Will go with chance probability of precipitation during those periods to cover this 
potential disturbance. 


Precipitation threat should diminish towards the middle of next week 
as upper flow flattens out and heights rise. Will go dry for next 
Tuesday and Wednesday. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 021200z tafs/... 
issued at 630 am EDT Thursday Oct 2 2014 


Large area of rain...with embedded lightning strikes...currently 
pushing into the western parts of the area. This appears to be tied 
to a small scale vorticity center over Illinois. Convective 
parameters not too favorable for sustained convection until later 
this afternoon...so Don/T think the threat for lightning strikes at 
the taf sites is particularly high this morning...except for khuf 
where some strikes are fairly close already. Overall...expecting 
shower activity at the taf sites through about midday...with the 
most widespread activity at khuf/klaf. Due to the elevated nature of 
the convection...ceilings and visibilities should remain above 
IFR...except brief IFR visibility restrictions possible in the 
heavier precipitation areas. Precipitation should diminish during 
the midday hours as vorticity center moves off to the northeast. 


May see more convective development in the khuf/klaf areas towards 
the middle to late afternoon hours as the tail end of Illinois vorticity 
center gets strung out over the northwest zones...but confidence is 
low here as models disagree as to whether convection will develop 
along this feature or not. 


Outside of any precipitation areas...ceilings generally at or above 
050 with surface winds 150-180 at 7-11 kts.
