NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
1149 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016 

issued at 926 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016 

Moisture transport ahead of an impulse has led to a scattered line 
of showers and a few thunderstorms redeveloping from krsl south to 
Kingman. This area of showers is just ahead of the it 
lifts to the expect this area of showers to slowly 
lift to the east-northeast as the late evening progresses. This 
lift and some upper level difluence will also lead to scattered 
storms over the Flint Hills as well...where the elevated 
instability is a little bit 600-800 j/kg. 

Latest rap13 shows moisture transport slowly shifting east 
overnight as the impulse lifts NE... with most of the elevated 
instability also shifting east of the area after midnight. So 
current thinking is both areas of showers...will be the last round 
for most locations...with lots of low clouds lingering across the 
area for the overnight hours as low level moisture remains high. 



Short term...(this evening through tonight) 
issued at 325 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016 

Negatively tilted upper trough approaching from the southwest in 
concert with strong isentropic ascent and moisture transport has 
resulted in widespread showers and thunderstorms spreading 
northeast across the region this afternoon. While the atmosphere 
is capped to near- surface based parcels...500-1500 j/kg of 
elevated instability along with very strong effective deep layer 
shear is resulting in scattered strong-severe thunderstorms over 
south-central/southeast Kansas this afternoon. Main threats are 2 inch 
diameter hail and 60-70 miles per hour winds...along with pockets of very 
heavy rainfall and localized flooding. Tornado threat is very low 
given elevated nature of storms. 

Based tonight's forecast primarily off the latest rap/hrrr. 
GFS...European model (ecmwf) and NAM are way too slow clearing precipitation out. 
That said...thinking this initial round of showers/thunderstorms 
will exit to the northeast by 5pm...with at least some renewed 
development likely this evening west of I-135 spreading east as 
strong qg forcing continues to approach from the southwest. 
Uncertain on how widespread this renewed development will be given 
extent of current activity. Suspect it won't be as widespread as 
current...although magnitude of elevated instability and shear 
could still promote a few strong-severe storms over south-central 
and southeast Kansas. Anticipate all shower/thunderstorm activity to 
exit far northeast portions of the forecast area by 2-4 am. 


Long term...(saturday through friday) 
issued at 325 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016 

Otherwise...fairly quiet weather expected through the weekend and 
much of next week. Lingering upper energy may support a few 
showers over northern half of Kansas Saturday. Another shortwave 
approaches from the southwest by late weekend...resulting in 
scattered shower chances Sunday night into early Monday. Weak 
forcing and negligible instability will preclude thunder mention. 
Temperatures this weekend into early next week will be below 

Building upper ridge from the west will support tranquil/dry 
weather and warming temperatures middle to late week. GFS ensembles 
and other medium range guidance strongly suggests the western 
Continental U.S. Trough will reload by next weekend...supporting increasing 
thunderstorm chances and possibly severe weather once again by 
next weekend. 



Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Saturday night) 
issued at 1148 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016 

Expect lingering showers to slowly lift to the east-northeast as the 
overnight progresses. This will end most of the vcsh after about 08- 
09z. Expect IFR ceilings and MVFR visibilities boundary layer 
moisture remains high with the easterly winds. Think the low 
stratus will persist until early Saturday morning...then ceilings 
should improve and dissipate toward middle morning through 
surface winds shift to the west. 

Could see the middle level cloud deck linger along and north of Highway 
50 for most of the daytime hours...with the potential for some 
lingering MVFR ceilings near krsl.
