NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED AVIATION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ST LOUIS MO
1048 PM CDT Wed Aug 27 2014

.SHORT TERM:  (Through Late Tonight)
Issued at 344 PM CDT Wed Aug 27 2014

Area of showers and thunderstorms over northern Missouri has almost 
totally dissipated as of 20z, and convection has refocused to to the 
south and east along the outflow boundary produced this morning by 
convection over northern Missouri, as well as the very ill-defined 
remains of the surface frontal boundary.  Storm coverage should 
remain scattered due to upper level ridging over the area, but 
continue to monitor the stronger storms for an isolated/pulse-type 
severe weather threat over the next hour or two.

With no upper support, expect this largely diurnally-driven 
convection to dissipate this evening with loss of heating, with 
thunderstorm threat once again shifting back to our northwest  
overnight.  Shortwave topping ridge and the associated low level 
forcing/warm advection should lead to a a fairly large convective 
complex forming over the mid Missouri River valley (northwest of our 
FA) during the predawn hours.  While the bulk of this activity 
should remain northwest of our forecast area, there should be some 
threat of convection in northern sections of our CWA, either from 
the leading edge of this activity, or perhaps from additional 
convection that will attempt to form in the very weak zone of low 
level warm advection in advance of the complex.

.LONG TERM:  (Thursday through Next Wednesday)
Issued at 344 PM CDT Wed Aug 27 2014

Nocturnal convection should be winding down during the morning, but 
not before producing some thunderstorms over parts of central and 
northeast Missouri.  It looks like the main area of precip will be 
further west over northwest Missouri again nearest to the low level 
baroclinic zone.  With lingering cloud cover and the upper level 
ridge slowly breaking down, expect that temperatures will be cooler 
Thursday than in recent days.  With highs ranging from the mid 80s 
to around 90 instead of mid 90s, it looks like heat index values 
will miss the magic 100 degree mark by 2-3 degrees in most 
locations.  While still hot and humid, it should feel...less bad.  
Expect widely scattered afternoon thunderstorms to help keep a lid 
on temperatures as well.  Will therefore let the heat products 
expire on schedule this evening.

Thursday night and Friday will be a repeat of tonight and Thursday 
as a weak low level jet provides just enough lift to potentially 
force some isolated to widely scattered convection. With overnight 
lows in the upper 60s to mid 70s and highs Friday in the mid 80s to 
around 90, we should be able to stay heat-headline free.  
Additionally, the trof of low pressure currently spinning over 
southwest Wyoming will be moving into the eastern Plains 
Friday/Friday night which will further weaken the upper level ridge 
and allow more widespread convection late Friday afternoon and 
Friday night primarily over central and northeast Missouri.  The 
trof will be directly over the CWFA Saturday which should continue 
to produce thunderstorms and keep temperatures suppressed in the 80s.

Another stronger trof will dig into the Great Plains on Sunday.  
This will keep the upper ridge at bay and continue to keep 
temperatures in the 80s.  Can't rule out a few afternoon 
thunderstorms Sunday as well since the upper ridge will be well to 
our east.  The trof continues eastward Sunday night and Monday which 
will bring us increasing chances for rain.  medium range models are 
in decent agreement regarding the cold front associated with the 
trof.  It should push into the CWFA late Monday afternoon/Monday 
evening and bringing the threat of more thunderstorms to the area.  
Models stall the front out over southern Missouri Tuesday and then 
allow it to creep back to the north Wednesday.  This won't be a big 
blast of cold air behind the front...rather just enough cool air to 
bring temperatures down to near or slightly below seasonal normals.

.AVIATION:  (For the 06z TAFs through 06z Thursday Night)
Issued at 1045 PM CDT Wed Aug 27 2014

Just mid-high level clouds for the remainder of the night with
most of the nocturnal convection remaining north of the taf sites,
although there may be a few storms impacting the UIN area towards
morning. There will likely be some fog late tonight/early Thursday
morning in COU and the St Louis metro area with light surface
winds and high surface dew points, particularly in areas which had
recent rainfall. Surface winds will pick up from a sely direction
on Thursday as the surface ridge centered over the Great Lakes
region shifts slowly eastward. Scattered diurnal cumulus clouds
will develop again late Thursday morning and afternoon along with
at least isolated afternoon and early evening thunderstorms.

Specifics for KSTL: The light lingering rain should dissipate by
06z Thursday. Mainly just mid-high level clouds for the remainder
of the night with fog possible late tonight/early Thursday
morning. The surface wind will diminish and become light late
tonight, then pick up to around 8 kts Thursday afternoon from a
sely direction. There will likely be isolated to scattered
thunderstorms Thursday afternoon into the early evening.
