NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service northern Indiana 
608 am EST Sat Feb 28 2015 


Synopsis... 
issued at 100 am EST Sat Feb 28 2015 


High pressure will drift across the area today with dry 
conditions...but below normal temperatures. The first of 2 winter 
systems will then take aim on the area starting tonight...bringing 
accumulating snow to the area. Highs today will rebound to around 
20 degrees...but will still close to 20 degrees below normal. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 411 am EST Sat Feb 28 2015 


A large surface high pressure area with a center reading close to 
1040 millibars will move east out of the area as return flow 
increases on the back side of the high pressure area. A large upper 
trough will shear out east as the remainder of the longwave trough 
remains over the west Continental U.S.. favor the GFS with deeper saturation. 
Expect snow to develop tonight given favorable upper level jet 
support and isentropic lift. The best lift and moisture will be over 
southern areas where around 2 inches of snow is likely by late 
tonight. Lesser amounts are expected farther north including far 
Southern Lower Michigan. Otherwise...this will be the last of the 
frigid mornings for at least a little while given moderating 
temperatures and increasing clouds ahead of this next system. 
Temperatures early this morning were somewhat similar to Friday 
morning with 4 am EST readings close to -10 in some areas. This 
shallow inversion will mix out rapidly allowing temperatures to 
quickly recover. 


&& 


Long term...(sunday through friday) 
issued at 411 am EST Sat Feb 28 2015 


As we have seen numerous times this winter latest model guidance has 
trended slightly southward with both strong storm systems coming up 
for Sunday and Tuesday. Still expecting impacts from both but latest 
guidance and trends suggest we will be on northern fringe of both 
systems. Still very cautious with wavering solutions...especially 
with the Tuesday event as main energy for that still in largely void 
region of upper air network. 


Snow will be ongoing Sunday as low level jet and strengthening upper 
level jet combine to bring low level moisture and broad lift across 
the area. System relative isentropic remains impressive with strong 
wind convergence and orthogonal component to pressure surfaces along 
with 2-3 g/kg mixing ratios and 4 g/kg just to our south. Best lift 
from this remains focused along our southern border counties during 
the day. This also same region where near surface temperatures will rise to 
near freezing by early afternoon. This should aid in compaction as 
well as helping melt some of the snow on roads...limiting 
accumulations as well as impacts. Highest axis of quantitative precipitation forecast has shifted 
south of our area but still coming up with just over a tenth of an 
inch north...quarter inch central and near a half inch south. Nam12 
snow ratios start around 15 to 1 but down to near 10 to 1 in south 
with afternoon warming. This should help lower accums south despite 
uptick in quantitative precipitation forecast during the day. Dgz still depicted to be rather high 
and near the top of deeper moisture. All these signs point toward 
total accums of 1 to 3 north...2 to 4 central and 3 to 6 far south. 
Any further southward shift will push accums toward the lower end of 
these values. Must remind everyone to focus on the range of possible 
accums and not the high numbers. After collaboration with 
neighboring offices decided confidence better further south for 
headlines and northern tier offices opted to hold off until later 
today for possible additional advisories on northern fringe. 


Second system for Monday night and Tuesday still looks on track. GFS 
starting to back off on precipitation arrival until Tuesday. Kept low to middle 
chance probability of precipitation going late Monday night. This later arrival will 
actually allow low temperatures to drop Monday night into teens and lower 
20s. Still expect actual surface temperatures to lag warming aloft Tuesday given 
the current Arctic air in place with deep and fresh snowpack and a 
frozen ground down to a depth of nearly a foot. Therefore period of 
freezing precipitation Tuesday morning still looks possible at onset and will 
keep the mixed type in forecast. Also a little concern that despite 
measured 2m air temperatures rising above freezing...actual surface temperatures may 
remain at or below freezing a little longer due to the extreme cold 
and snow pack. This is similar to an event last winter in northern 
Illinois where freezing rain continued on surfaces despite air temperatures in 
the middle to upper 30s for several hours. This is rare but has 
occurred following prolonged extreme cold events. Something to keep 
in mind Tuesday especially across our far north and northeast. For 
now kept trend of ending freezing precipitation all areas by 18z as warm air 
aloft increases and deepens. Rain then expected through afternoon 
and into early evening. Again...highest quantitative precipitation forecast axis has shifted south 
but models still generating respectable amounts for southern half of 
County Warning Area with an inch or so possible. This would still be enough for 
flooding concerns with frozen ground...storm drains blocked by 
snow...and rivers being frozen leading to possible ice jam flooding. 


Cold air will slowly spill in from northwest Tuesday night changing any 
precipitation over to light snow from west to east. A return to deep freeze 
then expected with temperatures back well below normal for early March with 
possibility of single digits and even some more below zero temperatures. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Sunday morning) 
issued at 606 am EST Sat Feb 28 2015 


A 1041 mb high pressure will drift over the area this morning with 
calm or nearly calm winds. Light snow is likely after 00z as return 
flow becomes established with increasing moisture in the low 
levels. Conditions could become IFR at FWA before the end of the taf 
period at 12z.
