NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
633 am EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


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


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 336 am EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


A cold front will move into central Indiana tonight and Tuesday 
bringing showers and thunderstorms. After a brief break 
Wednesday...another frontal system will bring additional chances for 
rain Thursday into Saturday. Near to above average temperatures will 
give way to cooler than average numbers by the weekend. 


&& 


Near term.../today/ 
issued at 336 am EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Isolated showers have developed across central Indiana early this 
morning due to some isentropic lift. Line of thunderstorms across 
Iowa into Kansas looks to be splitting with northern end moving 
northeast and southern end moving more south than east. Outflow 
boundary from these storms has moved east into eastern Missouri and 
western Illinois. 


Some uncertainty on how convection will develop today...with 
remnants of early morning convection moving into the area this 
morning. Expect bulk of rain to have dried up by the time it reaches 
here...but the old outflow will move in this morning. Working 
against new convection early today will be the increased cloud cover 
from the dying storms. 


For now have kept slight chance probability of precipitation all areas this morning to 
account for lingering showers from isentropic lift and for any 
convection that can develop along the old outflow boundary. 


Will gradually increase probability of precipitation this afternoon from northwest to 
southeast as an upper trough and cold front begin their approach. 
Will keep probability of precipitation in chance category though as best forcing does not 
arrive until after 00z. 


Will go closer to the cooler mav MOS for highs today as cloud cover 
should slow the temperature climb today. This heating will build 
enough instability for perhaps some strong to severe storms late in 
the period. 


&& 


Short term.../tonight through Wednesday night/ 
issued at 336 am EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Focus is on rain chances through the period along with heavy rain 
potential. Operational models are close enough that a blend was used. 


Tonight rain chances will increase as the cold front and upper 
trough move into the area. 850mb winds increase into the 30-40kt 
range by 06z...and central Indiana gets placed into the right rear 
quadrant of an 100kt upper jet. The plentiful moisture in the area 
will combine with the forcing provided by these features to produce 
showers and storms. 


Went likely to categorical probability of precipitation all areas tonight with the highest 
probability of precipitation around 06z as forcing looks to peak in that time frame. There 
will be enough shear and instability for a few severe storms mainly 
during the evening. Precipitable water values over 2 inches will 
also lead to the threat of heavy rain and localized flooding. 


Interestingly...the 00z NCEP WRF-nmm and 00z NSSL WRF are much less 
bullish with rainfall tonight...with forecast reflectivity images 
showing little if any convection at 06z tonight. Given the expected 
forcing and ensembles of the operational models also showing 
widespread rain...will ignore these outliers for now. 


Forcing will still be enough for likely probability of precipitation Tuesday morning across 
the southern half of the area /chance north/. Probability of precipitation will decrease 
through the day from north to south as the front exits. 


Went dry Tuesday night through Wednesday night as weak high pressure 
moves through. The old front will begin to return north as a warm 
front Wednesday night but at the moment believe forcing will be weak 
enough to leave out mention of rain. 


For temperatures...stuck with a model blend for lows. For highs 
Tuesday went closer to the cooler met with clouds and rain around 
during the morning. On Wednesday went with a blend of raw model 
numbers. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 


Issued at 336 am EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


The extended forecast will feature a warm and humid start with early 
weekend thunderstorm chances and finally a dry and cool late 
weekend. In addition...there could be a few storms around on 
Thursday as a warm front lifts northeast across the area. 
However...the best chances for thunderstorms look to be Friday and 
Friday night as a strong cold front slides southeast across central 
Indiana. Could see some lingering activity into Saturday...but by 
Saturday night the front should be far enough south of the Ohio 
River to leave probability of precipitation out. 


Pretty decent cold advection for this time of year will arrive 
behind the cold front with model 850 millibar temperatures dropping 
from around 20 degrees celsius on Thursday to 10 degrees or less by 
Sunday. As such...regional blend looks in the ballpark with above 
normal highs in the middle 80s to lower 90s Thursday and Friday and 
well below normal readings in the 70s on Sunday. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for 011200z taf issuance/... 


Issued at 633 am EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


The IFR ceilings should improve to VFR after 15z as the inversion 
Burns off. Otherwise...thunderstorms are expected to increase after 
18z and especially after 00z as a cold front to the northwest gets 
closer. The front will be near laf at 12z Tuesday. Will start off 
with thunderstorms in the vicinity at laf at 18z and the other sites at 21z. Then...will put 
prevailing MVFR thunderstorms in the tafs after 02z. 


Southwest winds will increase to near 15 knots with gusts to near 20 
knots after 15z and remain around 10 knots tonight. 


&& 


Ind watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
