Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 6:00 am CST on January 31, 2015


... On this date in weather history...

In 1989... residents of Northway Alaska were under
enormous pressure... as the barometer reached 31.85 inches
of Mercury. This set the all time greatest barometric
pressure ever recorded on the North American continent.
At the time... the temperature was a frost biting 46 below
zero. The colossal Arctic invasion then overwhelmed the
north central United States. Great Falls Montana
experienced truly Great Falls in temperature... going from
62 degrees to 23 below zero... an 85 degree plunge... in
just 36 hours.Old man winter showed no heart at all for
Valentine Nebraska... where the Mercury fell from 70 to
zero in just 9 hours! In 1949... Helena Montana plunged to
42 degrees below zero.

&&

In 1918... arica... chile should have had its name changed
to arid... chile. The town received its first measurable
rainfall since October... 1903... a period of 14.4 years!
This is the longest dry spell on record. The exact
beginning date is unknown.

Update... 
issued at 1013 am CST Sat Jan 31 2015 


Early morning sounding profiles along with marginal surface 
temperatures will continue to support a mix of light rain-sleet- 
snow this morning...mainly northwest of the Kansas Turnpike. A light 
dusting is possible...with perhaps a few tenths generally 
along/north of I-70. Precipitation should gradually change-over to 
all rain by early afternoon or so as warmer air advects from the 
south. A change-over to all snow is still expected tonight...with 
up to one inch possible across central/east-central Kansas.

Short term...(today through monday) 
issued at 337 am CST Sat Jan 31 2015 


Very light precipitation/mainly rain has occurred since last evening 
over central Kansas and more recently a bit further northeast 
across the Flint Hills. The spirit of the going forecast seems 
to be on track with more persistent isentropic lift within a 
deeper layer and better low level moisture flux today resulting 
in more numerous to widespread light to moderate rain to spread 
northeast across the area. Forecast soundings are marginally 
support of a period of snow or mixed precipitation early this morning 
over central Kansas...with rain for all areas into the afternoon 
and early evening. As colder air begins to advect south later 
tonight with the associated northern stream upper trough...a 
changeover to snow is still expected to occur before the better 
moisture and lift is shunted east of the area by midday Sunday. It 
still appears that residence time and rates will be low enough to 
only support light snow accums of generally an inch or 
less...mainly north and northeast of greater Wichita. Brisk and 
occasionally strong north winds and much colder air will prevail 
on Sunday with steady or falling temperatures during the day. 
Clearing and very cold conditions are expected Sunday night with 
some moderation in temperature expected on Monday.

Long term...(tuesday through friday) 
issued at 337 am CST Sat Jan 31 2015 


Main change to the outer periods was to trim maximum temperatures 
again on Wednesday as colder air wedges south across the area. 
Frontal timing is still somewhat in question...though both the 
European model (ecmwf) and GFS support frontal passage early in the day and 
some additional tweaks down may be needed with future forecasts. 
Otherwise a decent warm-up is expected ahead of this front on 
Tuesday. Confidence on precipitation chances with the middle-week front 
are not high...though for now will leave the slight chance for 
a wintry mix to snow Wednesday into Wednesday night.

Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Sunday morning) 
issued at 539 am CST Sat Jan 31 2015 


Light rain and snow across central and south central Kansas will 
become all rain and increase in coverage as we move through the 
morning hours. Any transient VFR will likely become MVFR/IFR by 
late morning or early afternoon. Widespread rain is expected across 
the area through the afternoon hours. Rain may mix with snow by 
04-06z across central Kansas this evening as a cold front moves 
south ushering in northwest winds and colder air. A brief rain to 
snow transition may occur across south central Kansas with widespread 
IFR/LIFR prevailing through the evening and overnight hours across 
south central and southeast Kansas.
