NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
528 PM CST sun Feb 7 2016 


..updated for 00z aviation discussion... 


Short term...(this evening through wednesday) 
issued at 223 PM CST sun Feb 7 2016 


A clipper system moving across the upper Mississippi Valley area 
today will move over the Great Lakes area tonight and Monday. In the 
wake of this system...increasing large-scale forcing for subsidence 
will combine with steep low-level lapse rates and continued low level 
cold air advection resulting in strong northwest winds across the Central Plains 
states. Time/height cross-sections of wind/mixing layer height 
suggest wind speeds may be higher on Monday compared to today and 
headlines for fire weather/wind will likely be extended into the 
afternoon hours on Monday across the region. Trended maximum 
temperatures down slightly with limited insolation as a steady 
stream of middle and high level clouds may dampen the diurnal climb. 


Tue-Wed...northwest middle/upper flow will prevail through the period 
although gusty northwest winds will diminish. Dry weather conditions 
and moderating temperatures are anticipated through middle 
week...especially across south central Kansas where highs may climb into 
the lower 50s. Temperatures may be slower to moderate across far 
eastern Kansas where highs may remain in the upper 30s/low 40s. 


Long term...(thursday through sunday) 
issued at 223 PM CST sun Feb 7 2016 


Northwest middle/upper flow is prognosticated to prevail through early in 
the weekend resulting in dry weather conditions and seasonably 
mild temperatures across the Central Plains. A cold front may back 
across the area late in the week but the bulk of colder air is 
expected to remain east of the forecast area. A shortwave trough 
will break down the middle/upper ridge over the weekend with 
increasing chances for light precipitation late in the weekend.

Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Monday evening) 
issued at 514 PM CST sun Feb 7 2016 


As upper-level energy digs southward across the region 
tonight...expect the pressure gradient to remain reinforced as 
high pressure remains anchored along the Front Range of the Rocky 
Mountains. Wind speeds should decrease somewhat as we lose mixing 
this evening. However due to a turbulent boundary layer...have 
left mentions of gusts at all taf sites through the overnight and 
early morning hours given the steep lapse rates juxtaposed with a 
shallow nocturnal boundary layer. As the aforementioned upper- 
level energy drops south tonight...expect cloud cover to increase 
at kcnu and remain low end VFR. Contemplated including mentions of vcsh 
at kcnu during the overnight hours...however given the dry low- 
level air and the shallow nature of the cloud depth...have opted 
to leave mentions out at this time.

Fire weather... 
issued at 223 PM CST sun Feb 7 2016 


A red flag warning remains in effect this afternoon for much of 
south central Kansas where very high to extreme grassland fire 
danger continues. Maintained a Fire Weather Watch for Monday 
across much of the area with continued strong northwest winds. 
With lower temperatures and higher relative humidities on 
Monday...there is some concern that extreme GFDI will not develop.
