NWS Forecaster Discussion

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 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 
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 


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. 



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.
