Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 252 PM CDT Friday Jul 31 2015 Short term...(this evening through monday) issued at 245 PM CDT Friday Jul 31 2015 Middle-upper ridge will remain across the southern rockies/Southern Plains during the period...with relatively weak west-northwesterly flow aloft over the Kansas region. This will support seasonably very warm Summer temperatures in our forecast area. There will be two primary areas of focus for thunderstorm chances during the period...one across the lower Missouri Valley where a frontal boundary will be oscillating north and south...on the southern edge of the stronger northwest flow aloft. The second area will be associated with perturbations trapped in the persistent monsoonal flow plume across the central/southern High Plains. Our area will be mostly in between these two focus areas of the more widespread rainfall potential. There are signals in the models that a modest south-southwesterly low-level jet will develop Saturday night...with weak shortwave energy passing southeastward over the Central Plains. This will support isolated to widely scattered thunderstorm potential in our area Saturday night into Sunday morning. A similar scenario may occur again Monday night. Overall...current forecast already reflects above thinking with little changes necessary. Jmc Long term...(tuesday through friday) issued at 245 PM CDT Friday Jul 31 2015 Short-medium range models indicate a shortwave trough topping the Southern Plains upper ridge...moving east across the Central Plains Monday night into Tuesday. This will support low end (20-40%) chances of thunderstorms across the area. Forecast confidence for middle-late week lessens considerably...with the GFS and European model (ecmwf) at odds on the depth of upper troughing over the Great Lakes/northeast... and the placement of the subtropical upper high in the south. In general...the idea of temperatures near to slightly higher than seasonal averages...and lesser precipitation chances in our area seems reasonable for now. Jmc && Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Saturday afternoon) issued at 1222 PM CDT Friday Jul 31 2015 VFR conditions expected to prevail. A scattered middle-low level deck is present across western portions of south central Kansas which could impact khut...but currently expect those ceilings to remain above 3000 feet. Otherwise...light and variable winds are present this afternoon and are expected to remain through the late afternoon/early evening. Winds will eventually switch around to the south as surface high pressure slides off to the southeast and increase slightly by morning. Some high clouds will be present towards morning as well at many sites. Many of the sites may also see some patchy lower visibilities during the early morning hours if winds slacken off again...with abundant low level moisture. Have left this mention out of the tafs...but it could briefly cause a decrease in flight conditions between 10-14z Saturday. Billings Wright && Preliminary point temps/pops...
