Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 548 PM CST Wednesday Nov 25 2015 ..updated for 00z aviation discussion... Short term...(this evening through saturday) issued at 314 PM CST Wednesday Nov 25 2015 Main concerns remain wintry precipitation type/accums late Thursday into Friday along/west of Turnpike...and heavy rainfall/flood potential in southeast Kansas. The latest model guidance suggests the spirit of the going forecast remain on track. Vigorous upper trough over the western Continental U.S. Will become a closed cut-off low through the late week periods...with an active southwest flow regime aloft setting up over the area where shallow polar air will plunge south across the plains. Plentiful moisture advecting into and just over the surface cold front on Thursday into early Friday will result in a significant quantitative precipitation forecast event across the area...with impacts on the cold and warm side of the boundary. Widespread rainfall is still expected to develop during Thursday morning...with frontal timing bringing colder air across central Kansas... and then eventually to along the Turnpike corridor by the early afternoon. Thermal profiles and point soundings support a transition to freezing rain across parts of central Kansas during the day with minor ice accumulations. As the colder air behind the front advects south across the rest of the area into Thursday night...this southward transition to freezing rain will continue into much of south central Kansas. Some sleet is also expected across central Kansas by late Thursday night into early Friday. Meanwhile...the bulk of the heavier quantitative precipitation forecast will affect southeast Kansas early Thursday night before shifting east of the forecast area by Friday morning. The combination of gusty north winds and ice accums to near one-quarter inch in some areas of central and south central Kansas could result in some downed power lines and tree limbs...besides hazardous travel. Heavy rainfall in excess of three inches is also expected to cause significant rises on rivers and creeks in southeast Kansas...so a Flood Watch will be issued for several counties. Confidence on wintry quantitative precipitation forecast and type is lower as we move into Friday night and Saturday...as some drier air may try to advect into parts of central Kansas. However...additional minor shortwaves aloft may affect southern Kansas giving these areas a better chance for bouts of light freezing rain/freezing drizzle or rain...depending on surface temperatures. Darmofal Long term...(sunday through wednesday) issued at 314 PM CST Wednesday Nov 25 2015 The shallow cold air will be slow to modify to close out the Holiday weekend...with a portion of the western Continental U.S. Upper low coming out across The Rockies and northern High Plains during Sunday...then slowly moving across the northern plains on Monday into Monday night. Little change to the going forecast will be made...with slight to modest probability of precipitation for mixed precipitation or rain. Ked && Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Thursday evening) issued at 548 PM CST Wednesday Nov 25 2015 Difficult aviation forecast with the cold front moving in and cold air infiltrating changing rain to freezing rain and sleet. MVFR to IFR ceilings are expected to prevail through much of the forecast. Low level moisture is streaming northward which will cause terminals ahead of the front to have ceilings dropping tonight and stay low through the day tomorrow. The front is already through krsl and kgbd and with this have quickened up the frontal passage through the forecast area following the quicker rap/hrrr/GFS. Freezing precipitation will move in to central Kansas and mainly krsl by afternoon Thursday...but is currently expected to be just before 00z at kgbd/ksln. Rain will become freezing rain with a significant warm nose aloft. Freezing rain will become sleet at krsl near 00z Thursday. Billings Wright && Preliminary point temps/pops...
