Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 1149 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016 Update... 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 impulse...as it lifts to the northeast...so 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 better...ie...around 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. Ketcham && 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. Adk 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 normal. 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. Adk && 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 overnight...as 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 midday...as 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.
