Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Record Report  Statement as of 01:29 am CDT on October 01, 2014


... Record daily maximum rainfall set at Salina Kansas on September
30th 2014...

a record rainfall of 0.79 inches was set at Salina Kansas for
yesterday... September 30th 2014. This breaks the old record of 0.73
inches set in 1941.



 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 6:00 am CDT on October 1, 2014


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

In 2006... Wichita set its all time record high
temperature for the month of October when the Mercury
soared to 97 degrees. The previous record high
temperature for October in Wichita had been 95 degrees
set on October 8th... 1979. In 2010... Tropical Storm
Nicole finally vacated the mid-Atlantic coast but not
until inundating much of the region with 1 to nearly 2
feet of rain in a 5 day period. Hardest hit were the
coasts of North Carolina and Virginia... where 13 to
nearly 23 inches of rain caused horrific flooding that
claimed 6 lives... 5 in North Carolina and 1 in
Pennsylvania. Flooding was so deep that cars actually
floated atop each other. Wilmington North Carolina
'rained supreme' by measuring a staggering 22.54 inches
from September 26th to the 30th. However... Nicole died a
slow death as she would dump 6 to 10 inches of rain on
New York City and Boston.

&&

In 1752... the second severe hurricane in two weeks
struck the Carolinas. The storm destroyed the Onslow
County courthouse and all the records were destroyed.
Beacon Island completely disappeared. Some people blamed
the disaster on the change from the Julian to gregorian
calendar in early September.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
711 am CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


..updated for 12z aviation discussion... 


Short term...(today through friday) 
issued at 248 am CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Could see some fog develop over central Kansas early this morning 
where light winds and increasing moisture will be present. We should 
see a continuation of elevated showers/storms for this 
morning/afternoon over eastern Kansas...as moisture transport 
persists over that area. A few strong/marginally severe storms 
will be possible with this activity given elevated 
instability/shear combo. Otherwise the focus will shift to this 
afternoon/evening...as latest satellite water vapor imagery shows 
a robust upper level wave maturing over The Rockies. This upper 
wave will move eastward across the Central Plains for tonight into 
Thursday. Richer Gulf moisture already on the door step across 
central Oklahoma will continue to stream northward into Kansas 
today...combined with strong daytime heating will ramp up the 
instability levels in the warm sector mainly for locations along 
and south of I-70. Latest model trends are pushing warm front a 
bit further south compared to 24hrs ago...due to upper level wave 
diving more south. If enough convergence can materialize along the 
warm front/dry line boundaries thunderstorms should re-develop 
later in the afternoon along these boundaries. The storms would 
quickly become severe with a few supercells possible given very 
strong shear aloft. Very large hail and damaging winds are likely. 
In addition...a tornado threat will also be possible given 
favorable low-level helicity/0-3km cape. The storms should become 
more numerous across the region tonight as the upper level wave 
approaches the region. -Jakub 


A strong cold front will sweep through central Kansas on Thursday 
with on going showers/storms ahead of the front. The main 
question will be the timing and amount of clearing that will take 
place ahead of the cold front over southeast Kansas...thus 
allowing for additional destabilization. Thunderstorms look to 
redevelop ahead of the front east of the Kansas Turnpike during 
the afternoon hours. The convection should become more linear...as 
deep layer shear takes on a parallel orientation to the advancing 
cold front. With the main threat as damaging winds with isolated 
large hail possible. Showers and thunderstorms will vacate 
southeast Kansas by Thursday evening. Cooler and drier air will 
overspread the region behind the cold front for Thursday afternoon 
into Friday. -Ritzman 


Long term...(saturday through tuesday) 
issued at 248 am CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Confidence remains high that dry weather conditions will prevail 
across Kansas for this period...as drier air overspreads the region 
due to upper level northwest flow persisting across the Central 
Plains. It will be a chilly start to the day on Saturday but a 
gradual warming trend is expected for Sunday into early next week.

Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Thursday morning) 
issued at 709 am CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


A small cluster of storms across northern OK...will continue to drift 
east-NE for the morning hours. Possibly affecting the kcnu taf site for 
the morning hours. So will go with thunderstorms in the vicinity for kcnu as warm advection 
and moisture transport continues for the morning hours. 


The other morning concern will be vlifr ceilings/visibilities for the krsl taf 
as the stationary warm front has dropped south of this area...with 
saturation in the cooler air producing this this patchy dense fog. 
Some concern that this cloud deck will drop southeast and possibly 
reach the ksln taf as well...but think it will stop progressing east 
after sunrise...bringing this deck to the halt before reaching ksln 
before beginning to erode. So will not include in the ksln taf. 
Think this cloud/fog deck will gradually improve after 14z...as 
sunshine Burns it off and mixing increases. 


Focus then turns to the afternoon hours...as a surface low pressure 
area develops across OK Panhandle...with a dryline expected to bulge 
east towards the khut/kict taf sites. Current model trends think 
this boundary will stay west of this area...with storms developing 
by around 00z/Thu. Once the convection develops...could see severe 
storms near the khut/kict/ksln/krsl taf sites...so will need a tempo 
group for gusty winds +tsra with later taf issuances...as storms 
come into focus. 


Think most taf sites will see some convection tonight..so will go 
with thunderstorms in the vicinity for most taf sites. Surface low looks to move east-NE 
overnight...which will shift winds around to the west and northwest on Thursday 
am.
