NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
655 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


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


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 339 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


High pressure will slowly move off to the east tonight allowing more 
clouds to move in. A cold front will approach Thursday and move 
through Thursday night bringing rain and chances for thunderstorms 
on Thursday night. Mostly dry weather will be in place from Friday 
through Saturday night with weak upper ridging. A cut off upper low 
will meander from the plains to the Great Lakes from Sunday on 
bringing chances for rain and below normal temperatures to the area. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 


Issued at 634 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Rain is reaching the ground /albeit just sprinkles/ across Illinois 
where dewpoint depression is near 30 degrees. Thus will keep a close 
eye on how rain progresses in case sprinkles need to be added to 
forecast. Did increase sky cover some based on latest satellite 
images. 


Previous discussion follows... 
surface high pressure will slowly shift east tonight but the upper 
ridge axis remains upstream until morning. With very dry dew 
points...easterly component flow...and dry column under the upper 
ridge think models are overdoing precipitation potential tonight across the 
north with the forming warm front and kept the forecast dry. Should 
see increasing clouds riding over the top of the ridge but that 
should be it. Temperature-wise went a little warmer than guidance 
with expected increase in cloud cover. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Saturday/... 


Issued at 339 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Forecast focus is on probability of precipitation/timing and thunderstorm chances with 
Thursday night system. Models are in good agreement and generally 
used a consensus approach. This set of runs is even slower with the 
arrival of the cold front in the western counties and holds it off 
until after 0z...with the NAM as late as 6z and the European model (ecmwf) a slow and 
further south outlier with the low center. Thus stuck close to a 
NAM/GFS average for timing and only included a low chance from 21z 
Thursday-0z Friday. Ramped probability of precipitation up after 0z and included categorical 
probability of precipitation across the area from 3-6z with the frontal forcing moving in 
and upper forcing moving through along with a 40 knots or so low level 
jet ahead of the front bringing moisture up from the Gulf. MUCAPES 
of a few hundred are in place ahead of the front and with the 
strength of the forcing will continue to include a chance for 
thunder ahead of and along the front. Still looks like the front 
will be through the area by 12z and thus continuing with dry 
forecast for Friday. 


Friday night models are hinting at development of a spoke on the 
back side of the low moving through the Great Lakes. Right now this 
doesn/T look too impressive...but it is showing up in the both the 
GFS and NAM and mav probability of precipitation are now in the chance category across the 
north. Decided to trend in that direction with a slight chance for 
rain in the north. High pressure should be back in place for dry 
weather on Saturday. 


For temperatures stuck closer to warmer mav numbers for highs based 
on projected 850 mb temperatures...and warmer than all guidance for 
Thursday night with rain and cloud cover expected. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 


Issued at 157 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


European model (ecmwf) and GFS show quiet weather and ridging across the area on 
Sunday and have trended toward a dry forecast at that time. 
However there are big changes for the beginning on next week as 
both models agree that a large upper low will push out of the 
Central Plains and slowly linger over the Ohio Valley through the 
middle part of next week. This will bring daily chances for rain 
to central Indiana next week along with plenty of clouds and more 
below normal temperatures. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 240000z taf issuance/... 


Issued at 655 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


VFR conditions expected through the taf period. Light northeast and 
east winds tonight will become gusty to around 20 knots from the 
southeast Thursday afternoon. Ind should see showers move in after 
02z Friday ahead of a frontal system. With some instability...albeit 
weak...would not rule out thunder either...but too far out to be 
confident enough to put in the ind taf. 


&& 


Ind watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
