NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
552 PM CST sun Dec 21 2014 


..updated for 00z aviation discussion... 


Short term...(this evening through wednesday) 
issued at 216 PM CST sun Dec 21 2014 


Low clouds and fog continue across the region today...and has 
gotten progressively worse. This is from persistent isentropic 
upglide which can be seen on the 290k surface as well as others. Kict 
88d and regional radars showing light rain expanding and moving 
northward across Oklahoma and into Kansas. 


Water vapor imagery and overlaid 500 mb height analysis show a 
long wave trough over the central United States. This through is 
progressing very slowly which continues to keep the region in this 
persistent weather pattern. 


Short term weather focus is on precipitation/clouds/fog. Given 
the recent trends of these in conjunction with the forecast of 
isentropic lift to increase overnight across the area...confidence 
is high that these threats will continue. The main uncertainty is 
whether dense fog will occur. The moisture is there...but wind may 
be enough to preclude it as well as any rainfall. Therefore...will 
hold off on dense fog advisory for now. 


The surface low...which is located in Montana today...will drop 
southeast and affect the area Monday and become vertically 
stacked. This will prolong the time this system sits over and 
affects the region. 


On Tuesday...a weak disturbance comes in behind the upper 
low...which will be located across the upper Mississippi River 
valley. This disturbance will cause some light precipitation. At 
this time...it looks like it may begin as rain but change over to 
snow during the event should it occur. Precipitation amounts look 
very light with this event at this time. 


Krc 


Long term...(thursday through sunday) 
issued at 216 PM CST sun Dec 21 2014 


The upper level flow regime becomes rather progressive during the 
period with disturbances moving through the region every couple of 
days. This will preclude any significant precipitation since the 
source of moisture...the Gulf of Mexico...will remain closed. 
Furthermore...temperatures should be rather moderate. 




&& 


Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Monday evening) 
issued at 541 PM CST sun Dec 21 2014 


Aviation concerns will once again be low clouds and fog. 


Deep isentropic lift ahead of an approaching wave will remain in 
place tonight. Widespread IFR ceilings will continue and should lower 
to LIFR levels as low level moisture continues to increase. 
Drizzle and light rain will also affect most sites tonight which 
may reduce visibilities to the 2-4sm range. We should finally get 
out of the IFR/LIFR conditions Monday morning as winds flip to the 
west/northwest behind the surface low. This will allow drier air to 
finally work in with VFR conditions likely at all sites by late 
Monday morning.
