NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
252 PM CDT Friday Jul 31 2015 


Short term...(this evening through monday) 
issued at 245 PM CDT Friday Jul 31 2015 


Middle-upper ridge will remain across the southern rockies/Southern 
Plains during the period...with relatively weak west-northwesterly 
flow aloft over the Kansas region. This will support seasonably very 
warm Summer temperatures in our forecast area. There will be two 
primary areas of focus for thunderstorm chances during the 
period...one across the lower Missouri Valley where a frontal 
boundary will be oscillating north and south...on the southern edge 
of the stronger northwest flow aloft. The second area will be 
associated with perturbations trapped in the persistent monsoonal 
flow plume across the central/southern High Plains. Our area will be 
mostly in between these two focus areas of the more widespread 
rainfall potential. There are signals in the models that a modest 
south-southwesterly low-level jet will develop Saturday night...with 
weak shortwave energy passing southeastward over the Central Plains. 
This will support isolated to widely scattered thunderstorm 
potential in our area Saturday night into Sunday morning. A similar 
scenario may occur again Monday night. Overall...current forecast 
already reflects above thinking with little changes necessary.

Long term...(tuesday through friday) 
issued at 245 PM CDT Friday Jul 31 2015 


Short-medium range models indicate a shortwave trough topping the 
Southern Plains upper ridge...moving east across the Central Plains 
Monday night into Tuesday. This will support low end (20-40%) 
chances of thunderstorms across the area. Forecast confidence for 
middle-late week lessens considerably...with the GFS and European model (ecmwf) at odds 
on the depth of upper troughing over the Great Lakes/northeast... 
and the placement of the subtropical upper high in the south. In 
general...the idea of temperatures near to slightly higher than 
seasonal averages...and lesser precipitation chances in our 
area seems reasonable for now.

Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Saturday afternoon) 
issued at 1222 PM CDT Friday Jul 31 2015 


VFR conditions expected to prevail. A scattered middle-low level deck 
is present across western portions of south central Kansas which 
could impact khut...but currently expect those ceilings to remain 
above 3000 feet. Otherwise...light and variable winds are present 
this afternoon and are expected to remain through the late 
afternoon/early evening. Winds will eventually switch around to 
the south as surface high pressure slides off to the southeast and 
increase slightly by morning. Some high clouds will be present 
towards morning as well at many sites. Many of the sites may also 
see some patchy lower visibilities during the early morning hours 
if winds slacken off again...with abundant low level moisture. 
Have left this mention out of the tafs...but it could briefly 
cause a decrease in flight conditions between 10-14z Saturday.
