Area forecast discussion...updated aviation 
National Weather Service St Louis MO 
639 am CDT Thu Oct 30 2014 


Short term: (through late this afternoon) 
issued at 343 am CDT Thu Oct 30 2014 


Main focus for today will be clipper-like system coming in from the 
mid-Missouri Valley and its associated impacts on the sensible weather. 
Models are in fairly good agreement wrt track and timing of this system 
with sfc low located just west of kmby around 1800 UTC to just west of kfam 
around 0000 UTC Friday...quite an unusual track this far southwest 
especially given the time of year. Have increased pops parallel and to 
the east-northeast of the sfc low track into the low-end likely category which 
conceptually matches best with the quantitative precipitation forecast output from the 0000 UTC 
Thursday model run from the European model (ecmwf). Specifically...this paints some likely 
pops oriented northwest to southeast from near khae to northwest of ksar. Amounts 
will be fairly light...around a tenth of an inch. 


Temperatures will also be problematic today...certainly not atypical of 
clippers...with a sharp southwest to northeast gradient. Leaned above 
guidance along and especially to the south and west of the consensus sfc 
low track...I.E. Most of central Missouri including kcou and kjef. For 
roughly the northeastern half of the County Warning Area leaned a bit cooler than guidance 
due to more cloud cover...higher likelihood of rain showers...and a more 
easterly component to winds which combined are expected to hold temps in 
check.

Long term: (tonight through wednesday) 
issued at 343 am CDT Thu Oct 30 2014 


Surface low to continue tracking southeast tonight away from 
forecast area. Could still see some showers this evening for 
southeast Missouri as well as southwestern Illinois. Otherwise, lows 
will be in the low 30s to low 40s. 


On Friday, more vigorous shortwave to drop south across Illinois on 
backside of upper low. Could see some showers develop far east, but 
confidence is low so kept this area dry for now. This system will 
bring in much colder air as the day progresses as well as gusty 
north winds. Temperatures will struggle to rise much, depending on 
cloud cover. For now have highs in the mid to upper 40s. Could reach 
highs by midday, then see temps remain steady or slowly fall during 
the afternoon hours. 


Friday night will be the coldest we have seen since mid April. With 
the clear skies and winds diminishing, will see lows in the 20s. 
Kept freeze watch going for late Friday night/early Saturday 
morning. 


Temperatures to begin a slow moderation by Sunday as surface ridge 
moves off to east and next weather system approaches region. Highs 
by Sunday will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s. Models are a bit 
slower in bringing in precipitation with next system, so only have 
slight chance pops for far northern portions of forecast area Sunday 
night. Best chances of precipitation will be Monday afternoon 
through Tuesday before tapering off by Wednesday. Some isolated 
thunderstorms will be possible with this system, but expect mostly 
showers. Highs will be in the mid 50s to low 60s Monday through 
Wednesday.

Aviation: (for the 12z tafs through 12z Friday morning) 
issued at 630 am CDT Thu Oct 30 2014 


Main focus will be on chances of rain showers through late this 
afternoon. Scattered showers may impact terminals beginning later 
this morning with continued chances of rain through the afternoon. 
Believe best chances of rain showers will be St. Louis Metro taf 
sites early/mid afternoon and have tempo to account for this. Rain 
should be fairly light coming out of a mid cloud deck and probably 
will not result in low ceilings and/or visibility restrictions. 
Winds will shift to out of the northwest behind the clipper-like 
system this evening and become gusty late tonight/early Friday morning. 


Specifics for kstl:
