Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 2:23 PM CDT on April 24, 2014


... Safety rules for severe thunderstorms...

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued by the National
Weather Service. In the interest of public safety, the
following safety rules are provided. Public and commercial
broadcast stations serving the affected area are asked to
broadcast these safety measures frequently while the watch is
in effect.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are favorable for
the development of severe thunderstorms in and close to the
watch area. If you are in the watch area, keep up to date of
the latest weather information. These storms can develop
rapidly so there may be occasions when advance warning is not
possible.

A Severe Thunderstorm Warning means a severe thunderstorm has
been observed or indicated on radar. If you are in the path
or near the storm, take immediate actions to protect life and
property. Follow these safety rules:

(1) in open country, you should seek shelter and avoid trees
which can be targets for lightning. If there is no shelter,
go to a ditch or culvert but beware of rising water which can
cause flooding.

(2) when indoors, stay away from outside walls and windows
and go to an interior room on the lowest level. Avoid using
electrical appliances while the storm is nearby.

(3) in Mobile homes, you should leave and seek nearby safe
shelter.

(4) if swimming or on a boat, you should get to shore as
quickly as possible and find shelter.

A thunderstorm is considered severe when it contains one inch
or larger diameter size hail and/or wind gusts of 58 miles an
hour or greater. A severe thunderstorm can also produce deadly
lightning and very heavy rain which can lead to flash flooding.

Remember, with any severe thunderstorm there is always the
possibility of tornadoes.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service St Louis MO 
348 PM CDT Thu Apr 24 2014 


Short term: (through late tonight) 
issued at 234 PM CDT Thu Apr 24 2014 


(tonight) 


Main focus through tonight will be cold front and associated risk for 
showers and thunderstorms. Degree of instability is still a concern and 
a source of uncertainty. Dewpoints have really struggled to climb so 
far today due to persistent southeasterly surface flow. Winds are expected 
to veer to the south/southwest as a subtle warm front lifts north to near 
the I-70 corridor by 0000 UTC this evening. This should allow sfc dewpoints 
to at least climb into the 50s across the southern half of the area. That 
being said...instability is likely to be on the marginal side for severe 
thunderstorms...on the order of several hundred j/kg. Wind shear will be 
supportive however of organized convection over the southern County Warning Area with 
40+ knots of 0-6 km shear just downstream of approaching shortwave trough. 
Regardless of the severity of storms tonight...believe widespread showers 
and thunderstorms will affect the entire County Warning Area due to very strong forcing for 
ascent aloft via dcpva ahead of vort Max and jet coupling. This strong 
upper-level support may help overcome the lack of instability and may 
lead to more strong/severe storms with damaging straight-line winds being 
the primary threat. Frontal timing and associated ending to precipitation 
is even more delayed than this time yesterday...with frontal timing just 
after 0000 UTC likely along the Mississippi River including the St. Louis 
metropolitan area and around 0400 UTC for kslo/k3lf. 


Skies will quickly clear overnight tonight with northwesterly winds gradually 
lightening up a bit. Look for lows in the 40s to near 50 degrees across the 
area and went with a consensus of guidance for mins tonight.

Long term: (friday through next thursday) 
issued at 240 PM CDT Thu Apr 24 2014 


With sfc ridge building into the region on Fri, have continued 
warm trend aoa MOS thru Sat. 


Mdls remain in relatively good agreement regarding the system 
approaching the area on sun into Mon. A lot can change by sun and 
will not focus much on details, but sun and/or Mon will have a 
potential for svr wx. Timing differs among mdl guidance, but GFS 
suggests main threat will be sun, while the European model (ecmwf) suggests the 
threat continuing into Mon. 


For tues and beyond, large upper low will remain anchored over the 
region thru much of the week. Will need to keep an eye on temps 
during this time as going forecast may be too cold. While this 
period shud be cooler, expect cloud to become bkn during the 
morning and into afternoon allowing low topped convection to occur. 
For now, will trend near a guidance compromise.

Aviation: (for the 18z tafs through 18z Friday afternoon) 
issued at 1216 PM CDT Thu Apr 24 2014 


Round of pre-frontal precpitation beginning to affect kcou and 
should also affect KUIN with shra/embedded thunder possible. 
Ceilings/visibilities may dip down into MVFR category early this 
afternoon. Frontal timing a bit slower than earlier 
forecast...around 2100 UTC at kcou...2300 UTC at KUIN...and 
0000-0200 UTC at Metro taf sites. More instability as you head 
south...but round of thunderstorms expected at terminals with 
brief periods of IFR visbys in heavy rain possible. Showers are 
expected to linger behind front for a few hours. Winds will shift 
to the northwest behind front with brief gusts along/just behind 
front from 25-30 knots. Skies will quickly clear out overnight 
tonight with winds backing to the west/southwest Friday. 


Specifics for kstl: 


Round of pre-frontal is expected to weaken as it heads east toward 
terminal so uncertain whether or not some light rain showers will 
affect the site. Frontal timing a bit slower than earlier 
forecast...around 0100 UTC. More instability as you head 
south...but round of thunderstorms expected at terminal with 
brief periods of IFR visbys in heavy rain possible. Showers are 
expected to linger behind front for a few hours. Winds will shift 
to the northwest behind front with brief gusts along/just behind 
front from 25-30 knots. Skies will quickly clear out overnight 
tonight with winds backing to the west/southwest Friday afternoon.
