Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
1138 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


..updated for 06z aviation discussion... 


Synopsis... 
issued at 255 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Broad upper ridging currently encompasses the southern rockies 
into the Central Plains. One shortwave trough is tracking across 
the northern Great Lakes with another...much weaker...impulse 
sliding over southern South Dakota. At the surface...a weak cold front 
stretches from eastern Iowa...to near the Kansas-Nebraska border. 


&& 


Update... 
issued at 754 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Will send out a quick update to expire the heat advisory. Could see 
ksln stay near heat index values of 105 for another hour or so...but 
will see temperatures slowly fall off after sunset...with the humid 
conditions remaining for most locations. 


The next concern will be a weak frontal boundary currently along 
I-70 in NE Kansas near ktop. Expect this boundary to gradually drop 
south-southwest as the overnight progresses and wash out along a 
line from ksln to kcnu by Wednesday morning. Not a lot of convergence 
along this boundary...with minimal moisture transport or low level 
jet over the top of the boundary for a nocturnal convection chance. 
So think any storm development along this boundary is very slim 
overnight. Will keep a low pop going along a line from ksln to 
kcnu...generally along the line where the remnant frontal boundary 
will be located. But will tweak probability of precipitation down a little bit...and could 
see probability of precipitation completely removed with a later update.

Short term...(this evening through friday) 
issued at 255 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Due to capping and lack of upper support...convection along the 
front has Bee very limited. Still feel there will be a small 
chance tonight over mainly eastern Kansas which will be further away 
from the influence of the upper ridge and in an area of upper 
diffluence. The front will wash out as it continues to push south 
on Wednesday with return flow commencing across the High Plains by Wednesday 
afternoon. Due to lack of convergence along the front...not 
expecting much in the way of storms along it on Wednesday. There is 
decent agreement between the GFS and NAM that some monsoonal 
energy will circulate around the high and will slide over Nebraska 
on Thursday and into the middle Mississippi Valley by Thursday evening. This 
should keep the bulk of the precipitation north of the forecast area. 


The upper pattern is expected to flatten out for Friday as a powerful 
shortwave trough tracks across southern Saskatchewan and Manitoba. 
This will result in a weak surface trough moving into Kansas with 
very hot temperatures expected along and just ahead of this feature. 


Temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday will be closer to seasonal averages as the 
front moves through. Locations along and west of I-135 will have a 
chance at the century mark on Friday with SW winds and decent mixing. 


Long term...(saturday through tuesday) 
issued at 255 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


The GFS continues to be more robust in tracking the shortwave 
energy out of southern Canada and across the northern Mississippi 
Valley by Sun morning. Meanwhile...the European model (ecmwf) isn't as deep with 
the trough and keeps much of the upper energy further north 
compared to the GFS. The good news is that both agree on a 
unseasonably sharp trough extending from the Great Lakes down 
through the Tennessee Valley by Monday morning. This will result in 
another cold front making its way across the plains to start the 
work week. If the GFS verifies it would be several degrees cooler 
than what the European model (ecmwf) is advertising. Will continue with some small 
precipitation chances as the front makes its way south on sun into Sun 
night but confidence is high we are not looking at a widespread 
precipitation event.

Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Wednesday night) 
issued at 1137 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


VFR conditions expected across most of the forecast area overnight. 
A weak frontal boundary is expected to drop south out of NE Kansas and 
become very diffuse over the eastern half of Kansas by Wednesday morning. This 
will lead to a gradual wind shift to the north and eventually NE and 
east by Wednesday morning. The only exception to the VFR conditions will 
be over southeast Kansas...where some MVFR ceilings may develop for the morning 
hours on Wednesday. Could also see some pesky ground fog during the 09-13z 
time frame over kict/khut with some MVFR visibilities. 


Considerable question as to convective potential along the weak 
boundary...and given uncertainty/timing issues...opted to keep the 
tafs dry for now. If anything can develop think the chance will be 
isolated at best.
