Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
1047 PM CDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


..updated for 06z aviation discussion... 


Update... 
issued at 1043 PM CDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


Going to go ahead and insert some patchy fog and lower clouds over 
far southeast Kansas early Tuesday morning before the surface trough pushes 
through. Light winds and clear skies should allow for radiational 
cooling in the next few hours in addition to light south winds 
slowly increasing moisture over the area.

Short term...(this evening through thursday) 
issued at 252 PM CDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


Forecast concerns: thunderstorm chances mainly Wednesday into 
Thursday...and gusty winds/elevated fire danger Wednesday. 


Boundary layer flow is prognosticated to become largely decoupled 
tonight beneath northwesterly flow aloft. Cannot rule out patchy 
radiation fog in the south if dewpoint depressions can lower 
enough. On Tuesday...low-level winds become easterly to the north 
of a developing warm front over Oklahoma. Low-level thicknesses 
suggest highs Tuesday will be a few to several degrees warmer than 
today with good insolation...despite the easterly component. 


An upper low west of the Baja California coast...will translate eastward across 
the Southern Plains Tuesday night through Wednesday...while a 
stronger northern stream trough moves across the northern rockies 
and northern plains. Pressure falls to the Lee of The Rockies will 
allow the warm front to lift northward through the forecast area 
Tuesday night. Forecast soundings indicate 1000-2000 j/kg of 
MUCAPE...however the strongest moisture transport is prognosticated 
northwest of our area. Therefore...it's uncertain whether there will 
be enough large-scale ascent to induce convection and will leave 
Tuesday night dry. The bulk of the convection from the wave moving 
through the Southern Plains should remain south/southeast of our 
area...although some of this activity could creep just north of the 
Oklahoma border during Wednesday. Otherwise...expecting the warm 
sector to remain capped in our area during the daytime Wednesday. An 
isolated storm cannot be ruled out Wednesday PM/evening near the dryline over 
the High Plains. However...the more prime area for storm generation 
will be along the cold front and cold front/dryline intersection Wednesday 
PM/eve...from western Iowa into eastern Nebraska and far northwest 
Kansas...through a combination of low-level convergence and upper 
support. A veering 50 knots low-level jet and warm middle-level pocket 
across the Southern Plains...should allow an mesoscale convective system to develop and 
propagate east-southeastward with highest thunderstorm chances 
across northern/northeastern Kansas Wednesday night. Gusty winds/hail 
could accompany the mesoscale convective system. 


The front is prognosticated to hang up over far southeast Kansas 
Thursday...before pushing south again Thursday night as a strong 
shortwave trough ejects eastward out of The Rockies. Will carry 30- 
50% chance of storms in the southeast where deeper low-level 
moisture and stronger instability will reside...and 15-30% chance of 
showers elsewhere. Cooler air will begin spreading southward 
Thursday night behind the front.

Long term...(friday through monday) 
issued at 252 PM CDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


A cooler and drier Pacific airmass will build southward into the 
area Friday into Saturday behind the departing strong shortwave 
trough. Latest trends in the medium range guidance favor a slower 
evolution with regard to an upper low pushing into the Pacific 
northwest Sunday/Monday. Lee troughing and gusty southerly winds 
will allow for temperatures modifying above normal Sunday into 
Monday. Any precipitation chances would be suppressed over 
eastern Kansas based on a slower European model (ecmwf) solution which indicates an 
eml plume across Kansas by Monday.

Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Tuesday night) 
issued at 1043 PM CDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


Aviation concerns will be fog and low ceilings over far southeast Kansas 
early Tuesday morning. 


Confidence is increasing in some IFR ceilings and possibly fog 
over kcnu early Tuesday morning. This would occur just prior to the 
surface trough pushing through. Slowly increasing low level 
moisture along with some radiational cooling will be the main 
contributors. However...after middle morning...confidence is high 
that VFR conditions will be in place area wide.

Fire weather... 
issued at 252 PM CDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


Lighter easterly winds on Tuesday should result in lesser grassland 
fire danger compared to this afternoon...however GFDI values will 
still be high with fuels still 90-100% cured. Strengthening Lee 
trough on Wednesday will lead to gusty southerly winds of 20 to 30 
miles per hour. Although minimum afternoon relative humidities of 30-45% are 
projected with increased dewpoints...the strong south winds and 
cured fuels will lead to very high to potentially extreme grassland 
fire danger from midday into the early evening hours. Fire danger 
should lessen Thursday...but will remain high.
