NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
109 PM CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


..updated for 18z aviation discussion... 


Update... 
issued at 1113 am CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Morning mesoscale convective system continues to drop southeast of 
the forecast area...with a mesoscale bubble high over extreme southeast Kansas. 
Current surface analysis shows a diffuse boundary waggling over southern 
Kansas at this time...roughly located from kcnu to kwld and just south 
of Wellington. Areas south of this boundary over south central Kansas 
is beginning to recover...with sbcapes values increasing to around 
2000 j/kg. An area of stratus associated with this boundary will 
limit recovery for the morning hours...but expect this cloud cover 
to burn off...with areas of south central Kansas becoming very unstable 
for the late afternoon hours. MLCAPE values of 2500-3000 j/kg are 
expected with bulk shear values a little less than yesterday but 
still in the 35-40 knots range. With airmass weakly capped and above 
mentioned stratus...convective chances are highly conditional. But 
could see another round of convection develop across south 
central Kansas as this weak stationary boundary begins to lift back 
top the north as a warm front late this afternoon into this 
evening. If storms can develop...this unstable airmass and shear 
could lead to another round of severe storms late this afternoon 
into early this evening...but not expecting nearly as many storms 
as yesterday. But could see a few supercells...which will probably 
become more elevated as the evening continues as the low level jet 
increases. The main concern for the late afternoon into the 
evening hours will be large hail up to quarter size and damaging 
winds of 60 miles per hour.

Short term...(today through thursday) 
issued at 252 am CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Overnight storms will once again linger into the morning 
hours...especially across southern Kansas while drifting eastward 
and diminishing by midday or earlier. A diffuse warm front is prognosticated to 
lift northward across the area this afternoon and tonight and may 
become a focus for renewed storm development during the afternoon 
hours. Better chances for more widespread development may occur 
tonight when a developing nocturnal low level jet transports moisture north 
into central Kansas. Although deep layer shear is prognosticated to weaken 
slightly when compared to yesterday...0-6km bulk shear around 35 knots 
combined with MLCAPES greater than 3000 j/kg will support vigorous 
updraft with any activity that develops during the afternoon hours 
along the diffuse warm front or residual outflow boundaries. 
Severe thunderstorms with large hail/damaging winds will continue 
to be a threat into the evening hours before diminishing as the 700 mb 
thermal ridge advects north and east over the Central Plains 
during the early morning hours. 


Wednesday-Thursday...a few storms may linger across central and 
southeast Kansas very early on Wednesday before clearing from west 
to east. Above normal temperatures will return with highs in the 
low to middle 90s. Another day with above normal temperatures in the 
middle and upper 90s is anticipated on Thursday before a cold front 
arrives Thursday night bringing increasing chances for storms and 
much cooler Canadian air south across the Central Plains. 


Long term...(friday through monday) 
issued at 252 am CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Unsettled weather is anticipated across the Central Plains 
states late in the week and through the weekend as a cold front is 
prognosticated to meander across the area as we remain situated on the 
northwest periphery of the middle/upper ridge centered over the 
southern rockies. Several rounds of thunderstorms are expected 
through the period while temperatures remain seasonably cool with 
highs in the 70s and 80s. Organized severe weather is not expected 
at this time.

Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Wednesday afternoon) 
issued at 108 PM CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


A weak diffuse boundary will begin to lift back to the north as a 
warm front late this afternoon into this evening. There is some 
lingering MVFR ceilings just to north of this boundary near khut...so 
will keep an MVFR ceiling mention for a few more hours until it slowly 
Burns off. Unstable airmass is place over south central Kansas...which 
may lead to thunderstorms and rain development across south central Kansas late afternoon 
into this evening. So will go with a thunderstorms in the vicinity for both kict and khut 
after 21-232z. 


Expect the convective chances to become more numerous for most 
locations after 03-04z. So will go with thunderstorms in the vicinity for a good portion of 
the overnight hours.
