Severe Weather Alert Descriptions
... Flood Watch in effect from Thursday evening through late
The National Weather Service in St Louis has issued a
* Flood Watch for portions of Illinois and Missouri... including
the following in ... Illinois... Clinton IL... Madison IL...
Monroe IL... Randolph IL... St. Clair IL and Washington IL. In
Missouri... Boone MO... Callaway MO... Cole MO... Crawford MO...
Franklin MO... Gasconade MO... Iron MO... Jefferson MO... Madison
MO... Moniteau MO... Montgomery MO... Osage MO... Reynolds MO...
St. Charles MO... St. Francois MO... St. Louis city MO... St.
Louis MO... Ste. Genevieve MO... Warren MO and Washington MO.
* From Thursday evening through late Friday night
* a cold front will slowly push through the watch area allowing
for an extended period of rainfall. Initial indications suggest
that 2 to 4 inches of rainfall is possible.
* Heavy rainfall will result in flooding of low lying or poor
drainage areas... and ultimately dangerous flash flooding on
smaller creeks and streams. Significant rises on larger
streams and rivers will also be possible.
A Flood Watch means that flooding is possible but not imminent in
the watch area. People in the watch area are urged to check on
preparedness requirements... especially if you have interests
along area rivers. Stay informed... and be ready for action if
flooding is observed or if a Flood Warning is issued.

NWS Forecaster Discussion
Area forecast discussion...updated aviation National Weather Service St Louis MO 1203 PM CST Wednesday Nov 25 2015 Update: issued at 1049 am CST Wed Nov 25 2015 Isolated light showers have develop over eastern Missouri and southwestern Illinois late this morning ahead of a shortwave trough that is moving across the region. Have added isolated forecast over the central and eastern counties through early afternoon ahead of the trough until it exits the area. Central and northeastern Missouri is currently mostly sunny, but more clouds should push into the area this afternoon as 12z upper air analysis showed a significant low level moisture transport into Missouri. Adjusted highs to be warmest were the sun is currently out, with cooler readings over southeast Missouri. Britt && Short term: (through late this afternoon) issued at 358 am CST Wed Nov 25 2015 Warm air advection is in full force today with SW upper flow coupled with decent sthrly sfc flow. Players for the end of the week will come into better focus today. Sthrly winds are expected to pick up today in response to tightening pressure gradient between sfc ridge mvng off the NE coast and a dvlpng sthrn High Plains low. Lee side cyclogenesis will continue today on the tail end of the strengthening front that is fcst to move through the region tomorrow and Friday. Return flow stratus will continue to affect the wrn/nthrn County Warning Area across cntrl/NE MO and W cntrl Illinois...though the ern edge of the clouds is a bit iffy. Moisture on the ern flank of the higher rhs is thinner than farther west. Think the eventual edge of the clouds will thin thru the day before the stratus moves back in tonight. Expect the day to be dry although I can't rule out some light rain late this aftn across the northwest forecast area. Warm air advection precip seems to dvlp ahead of schedule...esp in strong warm air advection regimes like this one. Held off on drizzle due to the low level moisture profile...not expected cigs below 2kft...drizzle is more assoc with IFR cigs. Due to the strength of the warm air advection...clouds do not appear to be a significant limiting factor in temps today. Still expect highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s despite widespread stratus across wrn/nthrn parts of the area. 2% Long term: (tonight through tuesday) issued at 358 am CST Wed Nov 25 2015 (tonight through Friday night) Focus continues to be precip chances into the weekend and now, rainfall amounts. Given the rainfall amounts, have decided to issue a Flood Watch for the srn half of the County Warning Area. Not many changes from the prev forecast. Main changes were to warm temps slightly again, reducing diurnal temp swing given the amount of cloud cover and strong sly winds ahead of the fnt. Changes to pops have been minor, however, despite the slower fnt timing. This is to hopefully capture the precip chances with the very strong warm air advection ahead of the fnt. Overall, mdls are in good agreement and confidence in a heavy rainfall event are increasing across the srn half of the County Warning Area. Have decided to issue a Flood Watch for areas where 2.00 inches of rainfall are expected thru Fri night. The watch may need to be expanded in area and possibly thru Sat. However, inconsistencies among mdls and from one cycle to the next, leads to lower confidence in precip placement for this weekend. Will wait for better mdl agreement to extend the watch if needed. (Saturday through tuesday) As mentioned above, mdl solns vary regarding mass fields for the system this weekend and into next week. Overall trends have been to push the fnt and sfc wave further south. The 25/00z GFS places the sfc wave on sun in nearly the same place the 24/00z European model (ecmwf) did. This seems to be a common trend, but is always difficult to determine if the trend continues. Still, confidence in precip chances across srn are increasing and have increased pops for those times when and where mdls are in agreement. Mdl differences increase thru the extd and have kept low pops into Mon night due to the uncertainty. Due to the uncertainty and mdl solns, have continued a European model (ecmwf)/GFS compromise for temps thru the extd. The Gem continues to be an outlier and this soln has been ignored for now. Tilly && Aviation: (for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon) issued at 1159 am CST Wed Nov 25 2015 A few sprinkles may still affect the St. Louis Metro taf sites early in the taf period, otherwise expect most of the afternoon to be dry. Expect clouds to move back into the area this afternoon and ceilings to be either high MVFR or low VFR during the period. There will be some potential for increasing rain chances, particularly at KUIN and kcou on Thursday morning. A low level jet will develop this evening and have added low level wind shear this at all of the terminals. Specifics for kstl: may still be a few sprinkles early this afternoon at the terminal along with the possibility of high MVFR ceilings, but currently think that ceilings will stay in the low VFR range. A low level jet will develop over the area by early this evening, so have added low level wind shear this evening. There will be the potential for scattered rain showers to develop over the area by late tonight or during the day tomorrow, but have kept them out of the forecast for now as I do not have enough confidence on timing. There also is the possibility of high MVFR ceilings developing at the terminal at times tonight or tomorrow.
