NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
651 PM CDT Thursday may 28 2015 

..updated for 00z aviation discussion... 

issued at 240 PM CDT Thursday may 28 2015 

Regional 88d's shows a pronounced mesoscale convective vortex tracking over extreme southeast 
Kansas/SW MO with another circulation over eastern Nebraska. 
Meanwhile...a more synoptic impulse is lifting over northern 
nm/southern Colorado. At the surface...outflow from overnight convection 
pushed into the Texas Panhandle/southern OK with return flow already 
allowing for recovery across the High Plains. 


Short term...(this evening through saturday) 
issued at 240 PM CDT Thursday may 28 2015 

Rainfall will come to an end over southeast Kansas shortly as the mesoscale convective vortex 
continues to lift northeast. Storms are already starting to 
develop out over far eastern Colorado/western Kansas. This activity will 
work east overnight and should move into the western fringes of 
the forecast area around 06z. Fairly confident that the convection 
will not be as widespread as last night and that there maybe two 
main areas of convection. One which has already developed over the 
Texas Panhandle and will slowly slide east overnight. The other more 
widespread area maybe over north central Kansas which will be closer 
to the better upper dynamics and middle level moisture transport. 
Obviously with grounds very saturated...flooding will be a threat 
with any storms overnight. 

Attention will then turn to a cold front that is set to sweep 
through the forecast area on Friday. The GFS is quite a bit faster 
with this front compared to the NAM with the GFS getting some 
support from the European model (ecmwf). With the cooler middle level temperatures remaining 
and associated limited capping...confidence is high that storms 
will develop along the front Friday afternoon and continue southeast 
overnight. This scenario would place the best storm chances Friday 
along and southeast of the Kansas Turnpike. By Sat morning the bulk of the 
activity will be southeast of the forecast area with much needed 
drier air finally pushing into the forecast area with below normal 

Long term...(sunday through thursday) 
issued at 240 PM CDT Thursday may 28 2015 

By Sun afternoon...what is left of the upper wave will be over the 
Ozark region and will continue tracking slowly southeast as upper 
ridging finally sets up over The Rockies into the High Plains. 
This will allow for dry weather to continue through Wednesday. 
There is then decent model consensus that shortwave energy will 
track out of the Pacific northwest and eventually across the northern 
rockies and out into the northern/Central Plains for Wednesday night 
into Thursday. While some storms can't be ruled out for north central 
Kansas...the better storm chances look to be north of the forecast 
area. Should start the work week off with below normal temperatures as 
they gradually climb to near normal values by middle week. 



Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Friday evening) 
issued at 651 PM CDT Thursday may 28 2015 

The aviation forecast concerns continue to be the chances for 
convection overnight and then again during the day Friday. 
Attempted to time convection through the early overnight hours for 
western terminals. Convection during the day is possible...but 
have left thunderstorms in the vicinity out of the day time for now because of the 
uncertainty. Winds will continue to be southerly throughout the
