NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service northern Indiana 
1103 am EDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


Synopsis... 
issued at 509 am EDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


A warm front will lift northeast into the area today into this 
evening bringing increasing chances for showers and 
thunderstorms...especially later this afternoon and evening across 
Northwest Indiana and southwest lower Michigan. Highs this 
afternoon will reach the lower to middle 80s. Saturday will feature 
better chances for thunderstorms and locally heavy rainfall as a 
low pressure system tracks into the Great Lakes region. 


&& 


Update... 
issued at 1052 am EDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


Rapid destabilization ongoing south of wmfntl boundary positioned from 
central Illinois east-southeastward through southern in and aiding recent northward development of 
rain showers/embedded thunder along a kaaa to kind line late this morning. 
Given Sat depiction of large altocumulus castellanus plume in this same area expect 
addnl development commensurate west/continued southward destabilization and eastward 
overspread of low level jet core currently aligned through central Illinois. Thus 
will likely need to expand probability of precipitation eastward a bit more and notably adjust 
western areas higher. Otrws ll moisture flux is considerable west/345k noted 
on 850 mb surface and may see some localized heavy rain develop in northwest areas 
after 18z. Will continue to monitor but early afternoon updates forthcoming. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 509 am EDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


A Central Plains shortwave will open northeast into Iowa/southern Minnesota/WI 
by later today-tonight. Southwest flow ramp up in advance of 
attendant weak surface reflection/trough should support NE mix of surface 
warm front/instability gradient into mainly in/Michigan zones by later 
today-tonight. May see a few light showers/sprinkles associated 
with leading warm air advection arm clip our northwest in/SW lower Michigan counties this 
morning. Kept probability of precipitation low (15-25%) as more focused moisture 
convergence takes place well north-northwest of the local area. 
Stable/subsident airmass on west-northwest periphery of low-middle level ridge 
should keep most locations dry for most of the day 
otherwise...with broken middle-high cloud canopy and southeast low level 
trajectories likely keeping highs in check (upper 70s to middle 
80s). 


Chances for scattered convection will increase middle afternoon into 
early evening mainly west of the Interstate 69 corridor as height 
falls begin to overspread warm front and what should be a 
moderately unstable environment along it. Torrential 
downpours/lightning will be the primary concerns as precipitable waters  
approach 2". Convective coverage/chances diminish tonight behind 
primary Theta-E surge...with moisture channel/surface trough 
associated with aforementioned middle level wave remaining west of 
the local area through 12z Sat. 


&& 


Long term...(saturday through thursday) 
issued at 509 am EDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


Reluctant to make sig changes in light of missed kilx 00utc radiosonde observation and 
NAM spacicity with respect to precipitable water/fgen/div fields...instead favoring 
consistency with strong nod to a conceptual focused forecast. Deep Gomex 
feed with monsoonal tap as western Kansas vortex lifts/opens northeastward into 
western Great Lakes by Saturday. This should afford wide precipitable water stream 
of near 2 inches from Ozarks northeastward through County Warning Area into Michigan thumb. 
Southeast periphery of middle tropospheric height fall centroid still 
affords 20-40m/12 hour to County Warning Area. Rich Theta-E plume affording tall/thin 
cape profiles amid deep parallel flow profile with mbe velocities 
typically at or below 8 kts still raises flag for heavy rafl potential 
Sat/Sat night despite meager Middle Range model solutions/qpf. 
Favorable jet dynamics with low level jet feature to track up Ohio River 
valley Sat night may also factor into mesoscale convective system maintenance as well. 
Additional injection of overtaking northern stream presently moving 
eastward through northestern Montana may also Foster regenerative convection. 
Potential for heavy rainfall/flooding/repetitive track complexes 
remains a concern...albeit quite nebulous in any spatial/temporal 
detail and any further stress than severe weather potential statement/heavy rafl mention would be 
premature. Removed probability of precipitation Sunday night with frontal boundary 
stall/lysis and shortwave ridging lending no appreciable focus. 
Remaining concern lies with Monday as severe weather potential appearing 
less attractive with next shortwave liftout through broad western 
Canada/northern plains trough. Energy lifts well northwest of County Warning Area in light 
of deep negative trough axis tilting in deference to downstream 
ridging fostered by strength of southeastern states subtropical ridge. Will 
side with consistency but focus hiest probability of precipitation northwestern County Warning Area with greater 
gradient to Middle Range chance probability of precipitation east. By Tuesday evening expect 
frontal boundary to lay out into Ohio Valley and best kinematics 
racing well northeastward into ont/Quebec and again side with no sensible weather for 
remainder of forecast. Gradual moderating temperature trend starting middle 
week amid gradual height rebound surface/aloft. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Saturday morning) 
issued at 543 am EDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


Mainly VFR through the taf cycle. High based/VFR isolated 
showers/sprinkles will be possible early this morning at ksbn as 
initial 850 mb Theta-E push lift through. Drier low level 
environment farther removed from weak low level jet support should help keep 
kfwa mainly dry through at least middle afternoon. Shortwave opening 
northeast toward Iowa/southern Minnesota will allow primary surface warm 
front/instability gradient to mix north into northern Indiana 
later this afternoon-evening. This feature will bring increasing 
chances for showers/storms with it...although confidence/coverage 
remains too low for any point mention at this forecast range.
