NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED AVIATION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ST LOUIS MO
617 PM CDT Wed Apr 23 2014

.SHORT TERM:  (Through Late Tonight)
Issued at 236 PM CDT Wed Apr 23 2014

(Tonight)

Mid/upper level ridge axis will pass overhead early tonight with next
system organizing over the south-central Plains. Expect an area of showers
and thunderstorms to organize overnight aided by strong forcing for
large-scale ascent via deepening trough and strong low-level moist/warm
advection. This area of showers and storms should stay west of the area
tonight...but may approach portions of central and northeastern Missouri
by daybreak. Sky cover should increase overnight ahead of aforementioned
system with brisk southeasterly winds continuing throughout the night.
For these reasons...went a few degrees above warmer MAV guidance in most
locations.

.LONG TERM:  (Thursday through Next Wednesday)
Issued at 329 PM CDT Wed Apr 23 2014

(Thursday through Saturday) 

Main focus for Thurs will be precip chances. Not much change from 
the prev forecast other than slowing timing down a bit. Some 
questions remain regarding exactly how precip on Thurs will play 
out. Believe that the morning hours will be similar to what is 
occurring now. Expect precip to intensify during the afternoon and 
into the evening along and just ahead of the cdfnt, if enuf heating 
can occur. Am becoming more concerned of an isod TSRA becoming 
strong to severe, mainly across portions of central MO. However, 
this is highly conditional on the amount of heating that can occur 
during the day. Will therefore not mention for now and allow the 
night shift to reevaluate. 

Beyond Thurs, the remainder of the period shud be dry. Did keep low 
chance POPs for Sat as a wrmfnt lifts thru the region due to 
uncertainty. However, with height rises over the area and better 
forcing across KS and wrn MO, believe bulk of precip will remain W 
of the CWA. 

The focus quickly turns to temps for Fri and Sat. Differences among 
mdls leads to a lot of uncertainty for these days. Given the past 
couple of warm up events, will trend twd the GFS/local WRF solns. 
These solns strong SW to W flow at the sfc with the thermal ridge 
pushing into the region. This, coupled with deep mixing, shud allow 
temps to reach the 80s for Fri. Sat shud be a little cooler as a 
weak cdfnt drops swd across the region, but still a warm day. 

(Sunday through Wednesday) 

While specifics may differ among mdl solns, general trends are in 
fairly good agreement thru the extd period. Mdls suggest an initial 
surge of TSRA will push thru the region on Sun thru Mon as a large 
low system approaches the area. This system has a threat of severe 
weather for much of the CWA. As this system is still 5 plus days 
out, time will not be spent discussing details that are likely to 
change many times by the end of this weekend. 

By Mon night, a S/W associated with the upper low progd to be over 
the nrn Atlantic, will approach the upper low over the MO region. 
After a brief Fujiwhara interaction, these two low centers are progd 
to combine forming one large low system. Mdls differ regarding 
placement of this interaction, which will be vital to determining 
where precip will occur associated with this low. If the interaction 
is further E, the low shud eject precip ewd out of the region, per 
the GFS soln. If it is further W, per the ECMWF, precip shud linger 
for at least a while. 

Regardless, both solns suggest much colder temps will remain locked 
in place thru the remainder of next week. Will take a closer look at 
temps for Wed and beyond tomorrow, but going forecast of mid 50s may 
have too much of an influence on climo and need to be lowered with 
future updates.

.AVIATION:  (For the 00z TAFs through 00z Thursday Evening)
Issued at 607 PM CDT Wed Apr 23 2014

Expecting VFR flight conditions/mid-high clouds tonight with
modest southeast winds. A southerly LLJ will develop later this
evening bringing marginal LLWS conditions to KUIN and KCOU
overnight. Precipitation trends are a tough call on Thursday.
Continued the forecast from the earlier TAFS bringing predominately
shra and marginal thunder potential into KUIN/KCOU in the 14-15z
time frame and after 18z in the St. Louis area. This will be
residual showers/tsra which develops across the Plains tonight and
pushes east and the remaining coverage is always hard to gage.
Seems like a better potential for showers and thunderstorms at all
TAFS sites will be on Thursday afternoon along/ahead of a cold
front where I have conditions lowering to MVFR. 

Specifics for KSTL:

Expecting VFR flight conditions/mid-high clouds tonight with modest
southeast winds. Precipitation trends are a tough call on Thursday.
Continued the forecast from the earlier TAFS bringing predominately
shra after 18z. This will be residual showers which develops
across the Plains tonight and pushes east and the remaining
coverage is always hard to gage. Seems like a better potential for
showers and thunderstorms will be late Thursday afternoon and
early evening along/ahead of a cold front where I have conditions
lowering to MVFR.
