NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
1241 PM CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


..updated for 18z aviation discussion... 


Synopsis... 
issued at 318 am CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


A weak upper-deck trough extending from the Minnesota/North Dakota 
border...across central Nebraska...to northwest Kansas is dragging a 
weak cold front extending from the Minnesota/North Dakota border... 
through central Nebraska...to northwest Kansas southeast. South winds 
around 10 miles per hour are keeping temperatures between 45 and 50 degrees. 


&& 


Short term...(today through saturday) 
issued at 318 am CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Forecast highlight: a freeze warning is being issued for all areas 
from late Friday night to Saturday morning. 


An extremely high amplitude pattern covers North America with a middle 
to upper ridge...extending from New Mexico all the way to northern 
Saskatchewan...and an extremely deep wave curving from the southern 
Hudson Bay...across the Great Lakes...then to the Gulf Coast keeping 
the forecast areas under a fast northerly flow regime. With the wave 
undergoing cyclogenesis over the Ohio Valley the ultra-high amplitude 
ridge will be very slow to move east...extending from the 
Saskatchewan/Manitoba border all the way to the Texas Panhandle on 
Friday. Such a strong north/northwest upper low flow regime will 
drive a Canadian airmass almost due south from Minnesota to Missouri 
Friday night. As such the coldest air of the season will invade the 
Kansas region Friday night and Saturday morning. With temperatures 
plunging into the lower 20s across the eastern half of Kansas a 
freeze warning has been issued for all of the County Warning Area 
from 2 am to 9 am Saturday. 


Long term...(sunday through wednesday) 
issued at 318 am CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


A second and almost equally intense upper wave...located over the 
Great Basin on Saturday... will begin to move east...crossing the 
central rockies Sunday afternoon and night where and when it will 
extend from Montana to Baja California California. As the upper-deck wave 
continues its slow trek east on Monday this would induce rapid lower- 
deck cyclogenesis over the Western Plains on Sunday. This would 
inject moisture from Texas...across Oklahoma and eastern Kansas...to 
Missouri. The result is that scattered showers and embedded 
thunderstorms are still scheduled to arrive most of central and 
eastern Kansas on Monday with the greatest chances targeting 
southeast Kansas and areas southeast of these areas. Chances will 
increase Monday night and Tuesday with the rains ending in a west to 
east manner Tuesday night. Mostly clear weather will prevail during 
the middle of next week. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Friday afternoon) 
issued at 1224 PM CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


A strengthening surface pressure gradient and clear skies are 
promoting strong northerly flow across all terminals for most of 
the forecast period. As skies remain clear during the overnight 
hours and upper-level subsidence increases...a few low clouds 
could develop around daybreak. Northerly winds will become 
northeasterly Friday as an area of high pressure moves north of 
the area.
