NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service northern Indiana 
236 am EDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Synopsis... 
issued at 822 PM EDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


A strong storm system across the northern Great Lakes will drop 
into the region on Friday bringing rain showers along with windy 
and colder conditions. As colder air filters into the area for 
Friday...some snow is also possible...but little or no snow 
accumulation is expected. Snow showers are expected to diminish 
Friday night as the storm system pulls off to the east...but 
unseasonably cool conditions will persist into the weekend. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through friday) 
issued at 408 PM EDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Upper level system digging into the Great Lakes tonight will 
bring strong northwest winds to the area...along with a 
likelihood of rain and snow showers late tonight through Friday. 


Water vapor imagery this afternoon depicts a short wave across 
the middle MS River Valley that should take a track primarily just 
south of the local area this evening. A narrow zone zone of weak 
warm advection/frontogenesis may allow a few sprinkles to 
overspread mainly far southern portions of the area late 
afternoon/early evening. Attention for the remainder of the night 
will focus on more potent upper pv anomaly currently dropping 
across the northern Great Lakes. An initial weak surface trough is 
expected to track across the local area during the overnight 
hours in association with eastward progression of aforementioned 
middle MS valley short wave...which will be followed by the much 
stronger cold frontal push after daybreak Friday. Isallobaric 
couplet is not expected to be overly strong with this 
system...but strong cold advection and deepening mixed layer will 
support Post frontal wind gusts of around 40 to 45 miles per hour across 
especially northwest third of the area Friday morning...with a 
few gusts to 50 to 55 miles per hour not out of the question closer to the 
Lake Michigan shoreline. Gusts may be somewhat more tempered 
across southeast half of the forecast area where low level 
gradient will be a bit weaker and characterized by more 
pronounced low level cyclonic flow. Will issue a Wind Advisory 
for far west/northwest locations for Friday morning through 
Friday evening. Criteria level gusts are expected to be 
maintained the longest into Friday evening closer to the Lake 
Michigan shoreline. A Lake Shore Flood Advisory will remain in 
effect for Friday/Friday night with some beach erosion and minor 
shoreline flooding possible given strong winds/waves and slightly 
above average Lake Michigan water levels. 


In terms of precipitation...a band of fairly strong low level 
frontogenesis preceding main upper trough should spread rain 
showers across northwest portions of the area in the 09z-12z 
timeframe...overspreading the remainder of the area through 
Friday morning. A brief lull in precipitation coverage may occur between 
more frontally forced precipitation and stronger upper level DPVA 
accompanying the stronger upper vorticity maximum. Low level wet bulbs 
should support primarily rain showers through early afternoon 
across most locations...with some snow showers possibly mixing in 
from northwest to southeast Friday afternoon into early evening. 
All indications still point toward lake effect rain showers 
becoming more prominent by late morning...likely evolving into a 
dominant single band...although forecast soundings do suggest 
about 30 degrees of shear in cloud bearing layer. Lake induced 
instability profiles still look quite impressive per NAM buffer 
soundings...with lake induced equilibrium levels to around 20k feet 
by midday. Thus...have maintained chance thunder mention through 
the day across the extreme northwest. With a long residence time 
of low level parcels given northerly fetch...confidence remains 
low in extent of snow showers later in the afternoon with concern 
that boundary layer modification may be a bit too much to 
overcome. Have largely remained with previous forecast idea of 
inch or less accumulations downwind of the lake...and mainly a 
bit inland where influx of slightly drier low level air may aid 
in frozen ptype for a time. Exactly where more dominant banding 
sets up is also of low confidence depending on exact 
track/strength of middle level system as it drops into the southern 
Great Lakes...and a cluster of higher res solutions depict more 
dominant banding shift west of the area. 


For temperatures...have utilized non-diurnal curve for Friday with 
steady or slowly falling temperatures through the day under strong cold 
advection. 


&& 


Long term...(friday night through thursday) 
issued at 408 PM EDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Initial focus will be on expected lake effect band which may be 
residing near or just over far western parts of the forecast 
area. Best window for any precipitation (likely in the form of some wet 
snow) will be in the 00z to 03z window before the flow becomes 
more north-northeast and moves into far Northwest Indiana. More intense snow showers 
could produce some light accumulations in grassy areas but roads 
should hopefully remain only wet except for elevated surfaces. In 
the east...surface low will be rapidly reforming over the Carolinas 
Friday evening and move off the East Coast on Saturday. Inverted 
trough from the low into the Ohio Valley...will persist through 
Saturday morning before shifting east. Highest probability of precipitation will persist 
in the evening with tapering overnight. Precipitation by this point 
should also be in the form of wet snow with a dusting of snow 
possible on grassy areas. Windy conditions will slowly subside 
through the night with greatest headline worthy area being along 
the Lake Shore with tightest gradient early evening. 


Cold high pressure moves across the area over the weekend with 
highs in the 40s (think many areas may struggle to reach 40 even 
with sunshine on saturday). Temperatures will moderate back 
closer to normal for the start of the week as low pressure 
develops across the plains and tracks into Canada for the middle 
of the week. A cold front will extend from the front with at 
least some moisture return by the Monday night to Tuesday night 
period. Likely probability of precipitation were introduced in last forecast and while 
not overly wild this far out with probability of precipitation this high will stick with 
signals and keep general idea in place. Yet another wave will 
quickly approach Wednesday night warranting slight chance probability of precipitation mainly NE 
where better moisture and lift will exist as main trough impact 
central/north Great Lakes. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Friday night) 
issued at 158 am EDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


A surface low was over Northern Lake Huron at the start of this 
taf period with a strong cold front extending southwest into 
southern Wisconsin. Rain was changing to snow farther northwest 
behind the front where thermal profiles supported all snow. 
A very tight pressure gradient will be over the area this 
afternoon...with windy conditions in the midst of deteriorating 
aviation conditions. May need to raise sustained winds at sbn for 
this afternoon. Made some minor adjustments to timing of lower 
ceilings and included the mention of a rain/snow mix as low 
level 1000/850 thicknesses drop below 1300m. Concern for a faster 
changeover to rain/snow or just snow with very cold air in the middle 
levels...-16c at 700 mb by late morning with nearly the entire 
profile below freezing. The dentritic growth zone very favorable 
for snow growth in the cloud layer from 15z to 21z in sbn area. 
For now...went with a mix at sbn starting at 20z... but this time 
may need to be moved up.
