NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service northern Indiana 
653 am EDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
issued at 400 am EDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


A few sprinkles are possible across Northwest Indiana and 
southwest Michigan this morning as a weak warm front lifts across 
the area. Warm and dry conditions are expected behind this front 
today with high temperatures in the middle to upper 60s. A low 
pressure system will then bring rain to the area later tonight and 
into tomorrow morning. Lows tonight will only be in the upper 40s 
to lower 50s. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 400 am EDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Sprinkles associated with weak band of 295k isentropic ascent 
continue to struggle in the face of very dry/stable low level 
environment. Have seen a few rain reports in our western counties 
though and will mention a chance of sprinkles through the early 
morning for our west/northwest zones. Warm frontal feature will lift 
north by later this morning and expect a dry and warm day for the 
bulk of the area. Increasing southerly winds/warm air advection will support 
afternoon highs climbing into the middle to upper 60s for most 
locations. Pair of midlevel waves...remaining largely 
unphased...will then cross the region overnight. Latest 00z models 
continued slower trend and precipitation now looks to hold off until late 
tonight. Southern wave will be the main feature for our area. 
Healthy dose of cva from sharp cyclonic curvature in the middle...and 
upper...level flow will support good uvm and weak cyclogenesis 
across the region. Still expect widespread light-moderate rain as 
this feature passes early Friday morning given Theta-E surge ahead 
of the low and precipitable water values returning to nearly 1.25 inches. Later 
timing will limit our thunder potential as already minuscule 
prefrontal instability wanes after sunset. Neutral stability 
overnight will aid the synoptic forcing though...further supporting 
high probability of precipitation and modest quantitative precipitation forecast values in the 0.2-0.5 inch range. Overnight 
lows will remain mild in warm/moist air advection ahead of the 
front. Expect mins only in the upper 40s to lower 50s for most 
locations. 


&& 


Long term...(friday through wednesday) 
issued at 400 am EDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


With trend to a slower and more dominant southern stream 
trough...have extended likely probability of precipitation across eastern half of the area 
into early Friday morning with NAM/GFS time height sections 
depicting fairly steep frontal circulation in deformation forcing 
portion of this system. Exact placement of strongest deformation 
will depend somewhat on impacts to low/middle level wind field of 
northern stream trough tracking across the western Great Lakes. Some 
weak elevated instability may support an isolated tstorm particularly 
across far southeast early Friday...but confidence much too low for 
inclusion at this time. Precipitation to exit eastern areas late morning or 
toward midday with breezy/dry conditions in the afternoon as 
stronger low level dry air advection works into the area behind the 
front. Secondary short wave and pocket of 850-700 hpa now also 
appears to be a bit more delayed and continued trend of previous 
forecast in pushing back timing of low chance -rw probability of precipitation until late 
Friday night. Mixing heights also not looking quite as impressive as 
previous runs Friday afternoon...but fairly deep mixing Friday 
afternoon should allow for highs from middle 60s to lower 70s. 


Main forecast challenge for Saturday will be how far south surface/near 
surface front progresses before stalling. Setup appears to favor a sharp 
north to south thermal gradient across the area with areas adjacent 
to Lake Michigan likely struggling to the 50 degree mark. NAM 
certainly appears to be an outlier with a further north surface trough 
position Saturday afternoon. Did add some sharpening to this 
gradient for maximum temperatures Saturday...but have utilized blended 
GFS/NAM/ec approach. While weak isentropic upglide will likely 
commence later Saturday afternoon particularly across western 
portions of the area...any moisture of note should be highly 
elevated which should support nothing more than sprinkles at best. 


Transition to a more stable wave pattern to follow for late weekend 
with blocking type pattern developing. Amplification of the pattern 
will allow for middle/upper ridging to get pinched from the northern 
Great Lakes into the Ohio River valley which will delay any moisture 
return of note until later Sunday. Temperature forecast somewhat tricky for 
Sunday with strengthening low level inversion and increasing high 
cloudiness possibly making for a few degrees of cooling in 
comparison to Saturday. Deepening easterly flow in response to 
pressure falls to the west will maintain dry low level trajectories 
and have maintained just slight chance -rw probability of precipitation Sunday 
afternoon...ramping up to chance Sunday night. 


Ec/GFS continue to be in general agreement with a complicated 
phasing of retrograding southeast Canadian and central Continental U.S. Pv 
anomalies for early next week. This phasing produces a slightly more 
northward position to the consolidated middle/upper height minimum 
toward the end of this forecast period. With details in this 
solution likely to change over next day or two...have generally 
stayed the course with broadbrush chance rain shower probability of precipitation through much of the 
Monday-Wednesday period with cooler than normal temperatures persisting. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Friday morning) 
issued at 632 am EDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Low level warm frontal boundary will continue to lift northward 
this morning which will take any lingering sprinkles north of 
ksbn by 14z. VFR conditions to persist through this evening with 
dry low levels persisting. An overall slowing trend has been noted 
in guidance regarding next system for tonight and have introduced 
rain at ksbn by 06z...and at kfwa by 09z. An isolated thunderstorm 
is possible but point probabilities are too low for inclusion at 
this time. Deteriorating trend to MVFR is expected toward the end 
of this period in association with precipitation. Southeast winds to 
increase in speeds today as ridge departs to the east...with some 
gusts to 20 to 25 knots possible late morning into this afternoon.

in...none. 
Michigan...none. 
Ohio...none.
