NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
1151 PM CDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


..updated for 06z aviation discussion... 


Short term...(this evening through sunday) 
issued at 245 PM CDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


Westward propagating outflow has allowed low level flow to remain 
backed which may provide sufficient convergence for deep moist 
convection this afternoon across much of central and portions of 
south central Kansas as a shortwave trough moves eastward across the 
region. Steep middle level lapse rates on the moist side of the boundary 
may support large hail in addition to heavy rain with the strongest 
updrafts. As you move further west...a more deeply mixed planetary boundary layer may 
would support gusty winds with any storms that develop given tall 
skinny cape profiles. 


Thunderstorm activity is expected to spread slowly eastward across 
Kansas and NE tonight and although the more robust low level moisture 
transport/middle level warm air advection and low level jet convergence will remain north of 
the forecast area...maintained higher probability of precipitation across much of central 
Kansas where confidence in deep moist convection remains higher given 
moderate instability coupled with 35 to 40 knots of 1-7km bulk shear. 
Further south and east...increasing cinh may preclude more 
widespread activity. Storms may linger through the day on Friday 
across south central Kansas gradually working eastward into 
southeast Kansas late in the afternoon and continuing into the evening 
hours before moving east of the area. Limited insolation and a 
subtle frontal passage will keep highs just below climate normals with most 
locations reaching the middle 80s. With weaker cinh/shear the threat 
for severe weather appears low at this time although some pockets 
of heavy rain will remain possible. 


A dry Post-frontal regime is anticipated on Saturday-Sunday behind 
the departing upper trough as a ridge of high pressure builds over 
the area supporting highs in the middle and upper 80s on Saturday. By 
Sunday...return flow is prognosticated to develop supporting highs in 
the upper 80s/near 90. 


Long term...(monday through thursday) 
issued at 245 PM CDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


A persistence type forecast will prevail through the entire 
period as an elongated middle-level ridge remains parked across the 
southern/Central Plains to the Great Lakes during the period. This 
will result in dry weather conditions and seasonably mild 
temperatures with highs in the low 90s and lows in the upper 60s. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Friday night) 
issued at 1151 PM CDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


The main aviation concern continues to be showers and 
thunderstorms through the overnight hours and through much of 
Friday. These storms will slowly move eastward during the 
forecast...with the front moving into the region during the day 
Friday. However...the front will still be very slow to fully push 
out by of the area...only reaching ksln by the end of this 
forecast. Middle clouds will be spread across the region during the 
end of the forecast period.
