NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service northern Indiana 
645 am EST Monday Nov 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
issued at 409 am EST Monday Nov 24 2014 


A strong low pressure system tracking across the Great Lakes 
region today will drag a strong cold front through the region. 
Very windy conditions are expected today as this storm system 
continues to strengthen across the Great Lakes. Rain showers will 
change to snow showers as colder air is ushered into the 
area...with a potential of some light snow accumulations across 
portions of northwest and North Central Indiana...along with 
Southern Lower Michigan from tonight into early Tuesday. 
After morning highs in upper 40s to upper 50s...temperatures will 
drop sharply through the 40s as the cold front moves through. Low 
temperatures tonight will drop into the middle to upper 20s. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 409 am EST Monday Nov 24 2014 


Main forecast concerns will continue to center on very windy 
conditions today...convective potential this morning...and precipitation 
type trends this afternoon along with some light snow accumulations. 


Lead upper level short wave is beginning to lift northward across 
extreme northern Indiana and Southern Lower Michigan this 
morning...with a lull in the greater rain coverage expected over the 
next few hours. This lull will be short lived as another vorticity maximum 
across southeast Missouri swings into the Ohio Valley this morning. 
Already beginning to see a few reports of sustained winds in the 25 
to 35 miles per hour range with a few gusts to 40 to 45 miles per hour across Northwest 
Ohio. These stronger gusts appear to be Colorado-located with strong 
isallobaric gradient marking northeast departure of core of strong 
pressure falls across southeast Ontario. Expecting these winds to 
subside a bit over the next hour as the stronger isallobaric 
gradient shifts northeast. 


An increase in showers is expected again from the southeast in 
association with the southeast Missouri vorticity maximum. A bit more 
instability is expected with this vorticity maximum as weak middle level cold 
advection begins to impinge on low level thermal ridging across the 
area. 00z NAM still depict MUCAPES on the order of 100-300 j/kg 
working across the area this morning before strong low level cold 
advection push with the front. Expecting a sharp increase in surface 
wind speeds once again by the 12z-15z timeframe as main low level 
thermal ridge shifts across extreme Northeast Indiana/Northwest 
Ohio promoting some better mixing. NAM/GFS/rap buffer soundings 
all pointing to at least the potential of mixing down some 50+ miles per hour 
wind gusts across far eastern portions of the area this 
morning...particularly across Northwest Ohio counties. This threat 
should maximize in the 16z-20z timeframe when stronger isallobaric 
gradient shifts across these locations. With potential of shallow 
convection also working across the area through midday...will have 
to watch for any isolated higher wind gusts associated with 
enhanced localized mixing of stronger winds aloft. Still 
expecting gusts into the 40 to 45 miles per hour range across the remainder 
of the area...perhaps a bit more marginal in nature across the 
northwest. Have opted to maintain going Wind Advisory...with a 
mention of 50+ miles per hour wind gusts as a possibility across the far 
east this morning/early afternoon. A slight extension in time for 
the Wind Advisory may be needed past 00z across portions of the 
area...but confidence is low at this time. 


In terms of precipitation...best synoptic forcing to persist across 
northwest locations today as next vorticity maximum digs across middle MS valley 
and eventually lifts northeast into the western Great Lakes. Better 
deformation forcing by this evening still appears to set up 
northwest of the local area...although combination of lingering 
synoptic forcing and weak lake enhancement may support minor 
snow accumulations across primarily southwest lower Michigan 
tonight into Tuesday. Only tweak to weather grids this morning was 
for just a slightly slower evolution to snow shower ptype this 
afternoon...but otherwise nature of previous grids remains intact. 
Morning highs may even reach 60 or lower 60s across the extreme 
southeast before sharp low level cold advection sets in later this 
morning with temperatures falling through the 40s across the 
area...and into the middle 30s across the west. 


&& 


Long term...(tuesday through sunday) 
issued at 409 am EST Monday Nov 24 2014 


An unwelcomed return to cold temperature anomalies the primary weather story 
middle-late week as additional east Pacific jet energy helps reinforce 
a rather deep eastern Continental U.S. Upper trough. Pivot through of middle level 
deformation axis/deeper saturation Tuesday am and added moisture flux 
off Lake Michigan will keep snow shower/flurries/clouds around Tuesday 
(mainly north). Minor accums possible along/north of the toll Road 
given lake-800 mb temperature differentials into the upper teens/westerly 
flow...with low inversion heights near 5-6 kft/shallow dgz limiting 
factors for more substantial accums. The next chance for light snow 
will come later Wednesday-Wednesday night as clipper system drops southeast 
in flattening northwest flow. Last several model cycles have trended toward 
a more southerly track into the middle MS/western Ohio valleys placing 
our southwestern zones in a better spot for a period of light snow. 
Renewed shot of modified polar air in veered west-northwest flow in wake of 
this wave should allow lake effect effect snow showers/flurries to 
develop on Thanksgiving. Could see some accumulations/impacts in 
favored west-northwest flow zones as 700 mb Delta t's plummet into the low-middle 
20s and inversion heights increase to near 10 kft per latest forecast 
soundings. 


Relaxation of height field late in the week/next weekend with polar 
jet/low level baroclinic zone potentially lifting north of the 
forecast area should allow milder/more seasonable air to briefly 
advect in by around Friday night-Saturday. A narrow band of light 
snow may accompany this warm advection surge around 
Friday...although model consensus suggest much better chances north 
of the forecast area. Otherwise....raised highs considerably on Saturday given 
excellent 00z model agreement. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Tuesday morning) 
issued at 642 am EST Monday Nov 24 2014 


A strong upper level trough and associated cold front will 
continue to produce unsettled weather across northern Indiana 
today. After a brief lull in rain showers overnight...next upper 
level short wave will bring a period of rain showers to terminals 
through at least middle morning. Some increasing instability with 
this short wave will lead to very small probabilities of thunder at 
terminals. Potential at any one point is too small to mention for 
the 12z tafs. Bigger story continues to be increasing winds this 
morning. Strong south/southwest winds are expected to develop just 
in advance of the cold front this morning at kfwa...with strong 
southwest winds developing at both terminals toward the 15z 
timeframe in association with the cold front. Southwest gusts to 
40 to 45 knots are possible at kfwa...with around 35 knots at 
ksbn. Wind gusts should subside this evening as the strong low 
pressure area with this system continues to lift out. The more 
prolonged period of synoptic forcing is still expected at 
ksbn...where rain showers will change to snow showers this 
afternoon...with little or no snow accumulation. Main upper trough 
moving through tonight combined with lake enhancement will provide 
continued scattered snow showers...although better chance of 
light snow accumulations should be located north of ksbn.
