Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
1138 PM CDT Tuesday Aug 19 2014 


..updated for 06z aviation discussion... 


Short term...(this evening through thursday) 
issued at 308 PM CDT Tuesday Aug 19 2014 


Middle/upper air analysis shows heights increasing some across the 
plains today...as an upper low begins to dig into the western coast 
of the US. This will lead to temperatures a little warmer today and 
surface dewpoints a little bit lower. 


The warmer temperatures and slightly drier dewpoints will be the story for 
the next couple of days...as middle level flow begins to become more 
southwesterly as the low in the western US remains stationary through 
Thursday. This will lead to warm temperatures across the plains and 
temperature/dewpoint combinations flirting with but just below heat 
advisory criteria... especially over southeast Kansas where dewpoints will will 
be a tick or two higher. 


Warmer temperatures will also increase aloft as well. This will 
effectively cap off any shower/storm chances for the area late this 
afternoon into this evening. 


Strong low level moisture transport is expected to race north into 
southern Nebraska tonight...which will keep any overnight storm development 
well to the north of the forecast area. GFS is a little further 
south (along the Nebraska/Kansas border) with the 850-700h fn-convergence 
associated with this moisture transport than the NAM/WRF. Which 
could lead to storms possibly propagating into central Kansas late 
tonight. But think the NAM/WRF has the right idea of pushing the 
moisture transport further north into central Nebraska. So will keep the 
precipitation mention out of central Kansas overnight. 


The warm temperatures at the surface and aloft will lead to more of the hot 
late Summer temperatures for Wednesday/Thursday as well. So will keep Wednesday dry as 
well...as cap looks to hold tight across the forecast area with 
storm chances once again focused further north into central Nebraska. 


Will keep some small probability of precipitation in for central Kansas for Thursday evening...as the 
Lee side trough begins to set up across northwest Kansas....as middle level flow 
begins to transition to more of SW flow. This will lead to possible 
storm development in the High Plains possibly propagating into 
central Kansas late Thursday evening and overnight Thursday.

Long term...(friday through tuesday) 
issued at 308 PM CDT Tuesday Aug 19 2014 


Flow pattern looks to remain out of the SW into the weekend. Latest 
European model (ecmwf) and the GFS keep the Lee side trough firmly in place along the 
Front Range of The Rockies for Friday and possibly into Sat. So most 
shower and storm chances will be located over the High Plains...with 
storms propagating out of northwest Kansas and possibly into central Kansas on Friday 
evening. Both the medium range models showing a lot weaker exit of 
the western US shortwave into the plains...with the models now keeping 
any kind of frontal boundary to the west-northwest of the forecast area for 
Sat. So chance of storms on Sat will probably be confined to central 
Kansas...where propagation may take any High Plains storms. Models still 
advertising a weak frontal boundary will drift across the forecast 
area for sun/Mon...so will keep chance probability of precipitation in for this. 


With slower arrival of the frontal boundary...maximum temperatures for Friday/Sat 
now looking more like Wednesday-Thursday highs in the upper 90s...and a slight 
cool down still expected for sun/Mon.

Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Wednesday night) 
issued at 1138 PM CDT Tuesday Aug 19 2014 


VFR conditions expected to prevail through the forecast valid period. 
Ridge aloft will reside across the area tonight and Wednesday. 
Mesoscale convective system developing across southwest Nebraska is 
expected to track east over southern Nebraska tonight...remaining 
well north of the area. Diurnally gusty southerly surface winds 
are expected to the east of the Lee side trough on Wednesday... 
mainly along and west of the Kansas Turnpike in the afternoon.
