NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service northern Indiana 
1256 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
issued at 432 am EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 


Weather will be quiet today with high pressure still in control. 
Skies will be mostly sunny with temperatures warming into the 60s. 
Clouds will increase tonight with a slight chance for rain late. 
Lows will only drop into the 40s and 50s. Showers and 
thunderstorms are expected on Thursday as a cold front slides 
across the region. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 429 am EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 


Quiet weather continues for most of this short term period. High 
pressure centered over south central Ohio early this morning will 
continue to drift east. Middle level ridge will move over our area 
today providing mostly sunny skies and light winds to start the day. 
Gradient will increase a bit western areas middle afternoon as ridge 
axis moves east. Mixing heights will increase leading to highs in 
the upper 60s west and lower 60s east. Pressure gradient continues 
to tighten tonight ahead of next short wave and associated surface low 
pressure. Moisture advection really increases after 06z and should 
see an increase in clouds along with rising dewpoints. As with 
previous shift concerns cannot rule out developing showers and 
isolated thunderstorms and rain after 09z with increased moisture and low level jet 
impinging on western areas. While best chances remain after 12z Thursday 
have allowed a low pop to continue late tonight. Low temperatures will be 
able to dip into lower 40s east while western areas to only fall in 
lower 50s. 


&& 


Long term...(thursday through tuesday) 
issued at 429 am EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 


An upper trough had moved onshore over the western North American 
coast. This system will move east today and is expected to reach 
the area Thursday. Concern for the potential for severe storms 
Thursday. The latest 12km NAM supports destabilization along and 
southeast of the front by early Thursday afternoon. Even with 
limited sun...it looks like the best chance for storms is along and 
southeast of a line from Winamac to Etna Green to Hillsdale. The 
best chance for severe storms is south and southeast of feet Wayne. 
The NAM is indicating a narrow band of dew points in the lower 60s 
along with afternoon cape values rising to around 1000 j/kg. In 
addition to this instability... strong low and middle level winds of 60 
to 70 knots are expected over the area causing exceptional low level 
shear and helicity values including 0-1 km helicity of 469 combined 
with 25 M/S shear per NAM BUFKIT. The 0-3 km values are 700 m2s2 
with 45 M/S shear. In coordination with the Storm Prediction 
Center...will include mention of severe storms in the hazardous 
weather outlook. 


A second wave will follow the initial system and bring the chance 
for more rain Thursday night and Friday. During Friday night... 
the rain should change to snow before ending...but no snow 
accumulation is expected. 


For the rest of the period...the upper level flow should become 
southwest...and allow temperatures to rise above normal by Tuesday. 
Rain chances will increase again early next week with the arrival of 
short wave troughs ejecting out of the main trough. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon) 
issued at 1256 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 


VFR with south-southwest winds generally 8-15 knots expected into the early 
overnight on the backside of an exiting surface ridge. Later tonight 
into Thursday morning will feature lowering ceilings and increasing 
chances for showers/embedded thunder as deeper moisture works in 
advance of a frontal boundary/shortwave. 


&& 


Iwx watches/warnings/advisories... 
in...none. 
Michigan...none. 
Ohio...none. 
Lm...Small Craft Advisory from 8 PM this evening to 2 PM EDT Thursday 
for lmz043-046.
