NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
1005 PM EST Sat Jan 31 2015 


Update... 


The near term section has been updated below. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 435 PM EST Sat Jan 31 2015 


A significant storm system will impact central Indiana starting 
tonight...and continuing through Sunday before finally coming to an 
end early Monday morning. As this system pushes away from the area 
on Monday...frigid temperatures will filter back into the region. 
Then after a return to normal temperatures by mid-week...the bitter 
cold conditions will return once again for the end of the work week 
in the wake of a cold front moving through on Wednesday. This cold 
front will also be responsible for winter precipitation from Tuesday 
night through Wednesday night. Cold high pressure will build back 
over the region for next Thursday and Friday. 


&& 


Near term /tonight through Sunday night/... 
issued at 1005 PM EST Sat Jan 31 2015 


Given the way things have evolved tonight and the state of short 
term model data have bumped the rain chances a bit further north 
overnight. Will make no major changes to amounts at this time 
as they will be extremely sensitive to tiny temperature changes and 
not yet ready to make wholesale adjustments. Previous discussion 
follows. 


Issued at 735 PM EST Sat Jan 31 2015 


Added a chance of sleet to the grids as sleet has been mixing in 
with the precipitation at least initially. Will carry that through the 
first few hours of the evening and then drop it. Remainder of 
forecast in excellent shape. Previous discussion follows. 


Issued at 435 PM EST Sat Jan 31 2015 


Focus for the next 24 to 36 hours is the strong low pressure system 
developing in the Southern Plains tonight and moving northeast into 
the Ohio Valley by Sunday. For the most part...all the 12z models 
have continued the trend of previous runs...which takes the low a 
little farther northward. This in turn pulls more warm air into the 
region. As stated in previous forecast discussions...there will be a 
very significant gradient with regard to snowfall amounts across 
central Indiana ranging from less than an inch...possibly even zero 
to a trace across the far southern counties...to 9-12 inches across 
the north in Carroll and Howard County! 


Ahead of the low...isentropic lift develops tonight allowing for a 
mixture of snow and possibly some rain to overspread the area. A 
couple of inches of snow accumulation will be possible across the 
northern counties tonight...with very little if any accumulation well to 
the south of the I-70 corridor. 


Temperatures will warm ahead of the low Sunday...allowing for rain 
to mix in with snow...or even become the predominant precipitation 
type for the southern half of the forecast area...especially during 
a period Sunday afternoon. 


The low begin to move east of the region by Sunday evening and 
colder air will then quickly work in on the backside of the 
system...thus changing all the precipitation back to snow by Sunday 
night. In addition to the precipitation...the winds will pick up 
starting late Sunday afternoon thanks to a strengthening tight 
pressure gradient with this system and winds will gust upwards of 30 
miles per hour. This will have a negative impact on travel...at least for the 
northern counties in the Winter Storm Warning and advisory as 
blowing snow becomes an issue which can reduce visibilities and also 
drifting snow. 


As for temperature during this period...generally stuck with MOS but 
went slightly warmer at night to account for all the precipitation 
and cloud cover and was more conservative with highs and knocked 
down highs temperatures a notch or two for same reasoning. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Tuesday/... 
issued at 435 PM EST Sat Jan 31 2015 


The winter storm will be coming to an end on Monday morning...with 
some light additional snow accumulations possible between 12 to 18z 
mainly across the eastern counties of the forecast area as the low 
accelerates away from the region. On the back side of the 
strengthening surface low...gusty north-northwest flow will lead to strong cold 
advection and high temperatures for Monday will be well below normal 
ranging from the low teens (north) to low 20s (south). Strong 
northerly winds will allow wind chills to drop to below zero on 
Monday and Tuesday mornings. High pressure is quick to reestablish 
itself across the area for the beginning of the work week and by 
Tuesday highs will be back in the 30s which is normal for this time 
of year. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
issued at 251 PM EST Sat Jan 31 2015 


The extended timeframe is characterized by a couple of light snow 
producing upper waves and a couple of well below normal temperature 
days bracketed by a couple seasonal days. 


A quick moving weak upper wave will move across the Ohio River 
valley Tuesday afternoon through Tuesday night...bringing light 
snow chances to the northern half of central Indiana mainly on 
Tuesday night. After a cold front slides southeast through the 
forecast area Wednesday...temperatures some 10 to 15 degrees 
below normal are expected into Friday including a return of 
single digit lows over portions of central Indiana. According to 
the 12z GFS...the second upper wave begins to affect the Ohio 
River valley Wednesday night wiping a swath of light snow across 
portions of southern Indiana. There is some ambiguity as to the 
evolution of this system...as the 12z European model (ecmwf) sends this weak trough 
across the northern plains and into the area Wednesday night and 
Thursday...producing very little across the area. This stands in 
contrast to the 12z GFS digging a more amplified trough across the 
central and Southern Plains during the same timeframe. Accounted 
for this light snow possibility with slight chance pop generally 
across our southern two tier of counties. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 010300z kind taf update/... 
issued at 927 PM EST Sat Jan 31 2015 


Radar indicates one or two more bands of precipitation should pass 
over the kind terminal over the next few hours. Most of the 
precipitation has been snow...but dual pol suggests a mix or change 
over to rain is possible within the next hour or so. 


Surface winds are in the process of backing around to the southeast. 
Dropped wind forecast to less than 7 kts for the rest of the night. 


Previous discussion follows. 


Lower confidence than usual tonight as model data suggest critical 
thicknesses for precipitation type will be straddling the forecast 
area. Different precipitation types will have an impact on 
visibility restrictions. 


Initial band of lift expected to move northeast across the area 
through about 010600z or so. Appears kbmg will be predominately 
rain...while klaf will be mostly snow. Kind/khuf looks to be near 
the transition zone...so expecting mixed precipitation in those 
areas. For the most part...the rain or rain/snow mix will be light 
enough to keep visibility restrictions above IFR at kbmg/khuf/kind. 
A period of IFR/LIFR visibility restrictions more likely in klaf 
where mostly snow is expected. 


Precipitation threat should diminish towards/after 010600z at the 
more southern taf sites as lift moves off to the north. More 
questionable whether there will be a break in klaf later tonight as 
band of lift will eventually slow down and begin to pivot back to 
the south. Not sure at this time whether that point will be over or 
north of klaf. For now...will keep periods of IFR/LIFR in klaf 
throughout the night...with a tendency towards lower conditions as 
sunrise approaches. 


Surface winds expected to gradually back around to 120-140 degrees 
by the pre dawn hours as low pressure approaches...but speeds should 
generally be at or below 7 kts tonight.
