NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service northern Indiana 
317 PM EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


Synopsis... 
issued at 306 PM EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


An Arctic front will continue to move through the area late this 
afternoon accompanied by numerous snow Showers. Lake effect snow 
and bitter cold will follow the Arctic front tonight and 
Saturday. The lake effect snow will mainly impact southwest 
Michigan and North Central Indiana where 3 to 6 inches of 
additional accumulation are expected tonight and Saturday. Lows 
tonight will be in the single digits with highs Saturday near 15. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through saturday) 
issued at 306 PM EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


Cold front moving rapidly east-southeast across the County Warning Area this afternoon accompanied by a 
band of snow Showers. Lake effect snow showers developing behind the 
front should gradually intensify this evening as cold air advection continues and winds veer 
from around 300 degrees to 340 degrees as a secondary cold front 
currently over northern lower Michigan moves through our area. Inversion base 
forecast to peak late this evening around 6500ft with significant lake 
induced instability (0-2km Theta-E lapse rates over the lake 
around -2.5c/km). Convection allowing models suggest a dominant 
band or two will set up around this time impacting northwest 
portion of our County Warning Area. Hwvr, these optimal conditions for les should 
be short lived as inversion forecast to Lower/Lake induced instability 
decrease late tonight and through the day Saturday. Dgz will also 
be very low given Arctic airmass moving in which should limit accums 
below what otrws might be expected. Only minor change made to 
previous forecast accums with totals tonight and Saturday expected to 
be in the 3-6" range in the advisory area with 1-3" in counties 
surrounding advisory and <1" over the rest of the County Warning Area. Locally 
higher amounts possible if dominant band persists over any given area 
very long this evening. Boundary layer winds forecast 15-25kt tonight 
which should cause considerable blowing drifting of the powdery 
les, mainly in the northwest advisory area. Little change made to temperatures 
with lows tonight in the 0-5 range NE and SW where some partial 
clearing expected and 5-10 under the lake effect cloud plume over 
most of the rest of the cwa, with highs Saturday only 12-16. 
Minimum wind chills tonight and Saturday morning expected to be in 
the -5 to -15 range. 


&& 


Long term...(saturday night through friday) 
issued at 306 PM EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


Lake effect snow will taper off Saturday evening as low level ridge 
axis shifts overhead and inversion heights lower. Dgz remains active 
in the 00-06z timeframe so some light flurries/snow showers expected 
but any additional accumulation will be very light. Main story for 
Saturday night will be very cold temperatures. Light winds...partially 
clear skies...and fresh snow will support good radiational cooling 
potential in spots. Gradient wind/warm air advection and clouds begin to increase 
toward 12z but should still be enough time for temperatures to drop. Kept 
close to inherited forecast...which is on the cold side of 
guidance...with lows around zero. Will likely be a high degree of 
variance in final numbers though...depending on exact cloud trends. 


Chance for light snow then quickly returns late Sunday as next 
shortwave rotates through the region. Confluent flow over the 
eastern Continental U.S. Will increasingly shear out and weaken this wave. Cva 
becomes negligible by Sunday night with just some broad/weak 280- 
285k isentropic ascent. Do see a decent moisture surge though with 
mixing ratios over 2 g/kg. Given steady...albeit weak...ascent and 
potential for higher than climatology snow ratios...could churn out 1-2" 
by late Monday morning. Best chances for higher amounts will be in 
our southwest where better moisture and forcing reside. 


After a brief break Monday night...there is another chance for snow 
Tuesday/Tuesday night as potent northern stream shortwave dives 
southeast and strengthens East Coast low. Models have been keeping 
precipitation shield of primary low just east of our County Warning Area but continue to 
struggle immensely with exact track of secondary vorticity maximum. 
Confidence in snow chances remains low at this point with parent jet 
energy still well out over the data-sparse North Pacific. Will 
continue to watch this period and adjust as models get a better 
handle on situation. Some Minor Lake effect then possible Wednesday 
with much warmer temperatures (and potential for rain) still expected by 
the end of the week. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Saturday afternoon) 
issued at 1139 am EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


Band of snow along the Arctic front extending from SW Michigan to NE Illinois 
should impact the terminals with occasional IFR conditions this afternoon. 
West-northwest winds also incrsg along the front with gusts to 25-30kt 
expected this aftn/Eve. Lake effect snow will develop behind the 
front and should impact sbn with IFR/occasionally LIFR conditions 
tonight. Initial lake effect bands may impact FWA with MVFR 
conditions this evening but winds should veer to a more northerly 
direction overnight resulting in bands probably staying west of FWA 
into Sat morning. 


&& 


Iwx watches/warnings/advisories... 
in...Winter Weather Advisory until 4 PM EST /3 PM CST/ Saturday for 
inz003>005. 


Michigan...Winter Weather Advisory until 4 PM EST Saturday for miz077>079.
