NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
1132 PM CDT Thursday Sep 18 2014 


..updated for 06z aviation discussion... 


Short term...(this evening through saturday) 
issued at 254 PM CDT Thursday Sep 18 2014 


Weak shortwave in the northwest flow and a somewhat stationary Theta-E 
gradient has led to a persistent but diminishing band of 
showers/thunderstorms across the Flint Hills. Think this area 
of showers will diminish as the afternoon progresses...as the 
shortwave continues to drop southeast into NE OK...which will 
greatly reduce the lift. Could see some showers linger into the 
late afternoon before ending. 


After this convection diminishes...think most of the evening and 
overnight hours will remain dry...as low-middle level moisture 
transport begins to shift well north of the area...as the upper 
level ridging increases across the plains. 


Think most of the daytime hours on Friday will remain dry as warm 
southerly breezes continue across the plains and the upper ridge 
moves across the northern plains. This will lead to another above 
normal temperature day...as winds shift to the S-SW. Do not believe 
temperatures will jump into the upper 90s like Wednesday...as middle-upper cloud 
cover will be a little more extensive...but think the warmer NAM/WRF 
has the right idea with maximum temperatures in the low 90s. So will adjust maximum 
temperatures up some. 


Concern for Friday night into Sat will then shift to remnants of the 
tropical system Odile...currently spinning over southern nm. 
Extrapolation and current European model (ecmwf)/GFS models are taking this system 
straight east...or trending it further south...across the Southern Plains 
and the Red River of OK. This is further south than previous runs 
suggested. The NAM/WRF though still suggests a little further north 
track across northern OK...but still further south. 


Models to continue to show a nice moisture fetch just to the east 
and ahead of this system...even with the more southern shift...but 
main area of heavy rainfall may be shifting further south along or 
south of the Kansas/OK border. So have adjusted quantitative precipitation forecast and pop values down. 


Still think the rest of the forecast area further to the north will 
see a chance of showers and some embedded storms...as a shortwave in 
the Great Lakes helps push a synoptic cold front south for late Sat 
afternoon into Sat night. Convergence and increased moisture will 
lead to a solid chance of showers...but just not the heavy rainfall 
amounts that were previously suggested. So will keep probability of precipitation solidly 
in the chance range for now...even into Sat night...as moisture from 
the tropical system rides of the top of the frontal boundary as it 
pushes south into OK. 


Ketcham 


Long term...(sunday through thursday) 
issued at 254 PM CDT Thursday Sep 18 2014 


Could see some showers linger across southern Kansas for early on sun. But 
general trend for the rest of sun through Tuesday will be cooler and 
drier weather...as northern plains area of high pressure drops south 
across the area....with an upper level ridge over the northern 
plains. 


Upper ridge over The Rockies begins to break down for Tuesday through 
Thursday...as a shortwave makes its way east into the plains. Warm 
advection and moisture returns to Kansas for late Monday night into Tuesday. 
This will lead to a chance of showers and embedded thunderstorms 
increasing for the middle of the week.

Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Friday night) 
issued at 1128 PM CDT Thursday Sep 18 2014 


Main aviation concern: low stratus potential. 


Upslope southeasterly wind component and lowering dewpoint 
depressions will allow boundary layer moistening 
overnight...especially along/east of I-135. Patchy fog and IFR 
stratus will be likely along/east of I-135 late tonight into early 
Friday am...with a lesser chance west of I-135. Therefore included 
mention at sln...ict and cnu terminals and hit the cnu site harder 
with lighter wind and recent rainfall. Any lingering stratus 
should burn off by late Friday morning with flow becoming 
southerly and increased mixing.
