NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
425 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


Update... 
the aviation section has been updated below 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 1244 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


A cold front will exit the state late this afternoon...pushing the 
hot and humid air in place across the state away to the southeast. 


High pressure is expected to build in the wake of the front 
tonight. This will keep dry weather in place across central 
Indiana tonight through Friday...along with seasonable 
temperatures. 


A weak cold front may pass on Friday night...bringing rain chances 
back to central Indiana then...followed by a third front on Monday 
night into Tuesday. Look for temperatures to remain close to 
seasonable normals over the next seven days. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 


Issued at 1244 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


Surface analysis early this afternoon shows a trough of low 
pressure across northern and western Indiana stretching southwest 
to southern Missouri. Satellite shows an area of clouds ahead of 
the trough...which was suppressing heating a little. A ridge of 
high pressure was found across the Central Plains. Meanwhile 
aloft... water vapor imagery shows a ridge of high pressure in 
place over the lower Mississippi. Water vapor shows a plume of 
tropical moisture streaming around the high...across the Central 
Plains to Illinois and Indiana. Dew points across central Indiana 
were very high...in the lower 70s. 


Main forecast challenge tonight will be probability of precipitation. Forecast soundings 
remain very favorable for precipitation late this afternoon with 
convective temperatures being reached ahead of the cold front amid the 
very warm and moist air mass. Thus will include some probability of precipitation late 
this afternoon and early this evening...particularly across the 
southeast area where the trough will pass last. 


High pressure...subsidence and less humid air is expected to 
arrive in the wake of the cold front. Forecast soundings by 00z 
show good middle level warming near 700mb...providing a capping 
effect. By 06z a much drier air mass arrives as dew points within 
the column drop off dramatically. Thus will trend toward a dry pop 
by 03z across much of the forecast area as heating and any forcing 
should be lost by then. As for temperatures...will use a blend of the 
mavmos and metmos. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Saturday/... 


Issued at 1244 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


GFS and NAM suggest surface high pressure will build through the 
Ohio Valley on Thursday and maintain it/S control through at 
least Friday evening. Forecast soundings show a very dry column as 
surface dew points drop into the 50s.Convective temperatures on Thursday 
appear unreachable...and may briefly be touched on Friday. Thus as 
the flow aloft is expected to become more northwesterly over the 
next few day...will mainly look for just some passing cirrus from time 
to time. Thus mostly sunny days and mostly clear nights are 
expected. Through Friday. Will use a blend on mavmos and metmos 
temperatures for highs and lows. 


On Friday night the GFS hints at a weak cold front pushing across 
central Indiana late. Diurnal timing with this system is bad...and 
at this time forcing aloft appears minimal. Forecast soundings 
remain rather dry and at the surface Gulf moisture remains cut 
off. Thus confidence in this quick hitting front is low. For now 
will include low chance probability of precipitation mainly across the north where surface 
convergence appears to be best. Will trend temperatures on Friday night 
warmer than mavmos given the expected cloud with this system. 


Another surface ridge is expected to build across central Indiana 
in the wake of the quick moving cold front on late Friday night. 
Gulf moisture remains cut off amid the northwest flow as forecast 
soundings show unreachable convective temperatures amid a dry column. 
Will trend toward mostly sunny then with highs slightly cooler 
than mexmos. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 


Issued at 222 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


Saturday night starts the period dry but another surface trough 
settles into the area from the north beginning Sunday and remains 
in the area into middle week. Associated weak upper waves will return 
a daily chance of storms to most areas from Sunday Onward with 
best chances Tuesday when front is across the area. 


Without the hot dome upper ridge able to build back in...more 
seasonal temperatures are expected ranging from low/middle 80s north 
sections to middle/upper 80s south. Relatively comfortable lower 60 
dewpoints at the start of the period will creep back towards a 
humid 70 degrees early and midweek. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for 292100z ind taf update/... 


Issued at 425 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


Pulled thunderstorms in the vicinity due to radar trends. Otherwise...raised wind speeds a 
few knots through 00z. 


Previous discussion follows... 


Issued at 114 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


VFR forecast with exception of brief period for possible storms 
dropping visibility this afternoon. Winds at or below 10 kts from 
northwest through the period. 


Surface trough already moving across taf sites at the moment. 
Dewpoint front back in eastern Illinois is developing cumulus but 
clouds have yet to reach shower/storm stage. Expect isolated to 
scattered storm growth on the boundary as it moves through taf 
sites 19z klaf to 23z kbmg. After that skies will gradually clear 
and remain so rest of the forecast.
