NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service St Louis MO 
337 am CST sun Nov 23 2014 


Short term: (through late this afternoon) 
issued at 331 am CST sun Nov 23 2014 


Surface low to begin lifting northeastward towards forecast area 
today. Will see showers on the increase this morning and spread 
north across the region. Some instability today so there is a chance 
of thunderstorms mainly along and south of I-70. As for 
temperatures, will depend on cloud cover and rainfall. But feel that 
temps will rise into the mid 50s to low 60s by this afternoon. 


Byrd 


Long term: (tonight through saturday) 
issued at 331 am CST sun Nov 23 2014 


(tonight-wednesday) 


While specific precip trends are certainly tricky tonight and into 
Monday, latest synoptic and hi-res guidance suggests the general 
scenario will be that this afternoon's band of rain and embedded 
thunderstorms will rotate east out of the area this evening, as 
additional precip begins to form to our west as secondary shortwave 
drops south in the wake of today's system. This secondary area of 
precip should then wind down to spotty areas of light rain/light 
snow during the day on Monday. 


Yesterday's guidance as well as 00z model output is now suggesting 
more precip lingering in the cold air late tonight and early Monday 
than was indicated by earlier runs. I have not made any major 
changes to the timing of the changeover from rain to snow over the 
northwest half of the County Warning Area in the 06-12z time frame; this may be a 
bit too fast, but didn't want to discount the intensity of the 
cold air advection. In the far northwest counties, it appears that this strong cold air advection will 
cause freezing levels to drop enough to support the rain changing 
over to all snow for a few hours late tonight and into early 
Monday morning, and based on this have added some minor accumulations 
of under an inch in our extreme northwest counties. 


Min/Max temps for tonight/Monday will be based on non-diurnal, 3 
hourly temp trends during this time frame. 


No major changes in going forecast trends heading into midweek, with 
dry and chlly weather on Tuesday followed by a brief warmup and low 
pops for the fast-moving, moisture-starved system on Wednesday. 


(Thursday-saturday) 


Medium range guidance has come into better agreement with a less 
amplified solution for Thanksgiving day, suggesting a ribbon of 
light precip over northern sections of the County Warning Area as shortwave 
interacts with baroclinicity that is draped across the region. 
Pattern suggests that there should be a strong temperature 
gradient from north to south across the region, with highs in the 
30s over the cold air in the north while approaching 50 in the 
warmer air over southern sections of the County Warning Area. 


This agreement jumps the tracks heading into the latter half of the 
week, with Gem and European model (ecmwf) forecasting broad trofing over the central 
Continental U.S. While the GFS maintains a more quasi-zonal look. Of course, 
given the intensity of the baroclinic zone this somewhat subtle 
difference will make a huge impact on sensible weather trends, and 
especially on temperatures. This discrepency can be seen in the 
surface prog forecasts for Friday morning; European model (ecmwf) and Gem have broad 
and cold Canadian high over the plains and into the upper 
Mississippi Valley with north/northeast winds over our fa, while GFS 
as surface low over the northern plains and southerly winds over our 
area. MOS guidance based on these solutions offer a more 
quanitative and Stark measure of this discrepency...a whopping 
20-25 degree difference on friday's highs between the colder 
European model (ecmwf) and warmer GFS. For now have maintained earlier (colder) 
trends, based on consensus of Gem and ecmef.

Aviation: (for the 06z tafs through 06z Sunday night) 
issued at 1136 PM CST Sat Nov 22 2014 


Specifics for kcou, kuin: an approaching low pressure system will 
bring widespread rainfall and IFR conditions to the area on 
Sunday. Winds will become northwesterly behind a cold front 
towards the end of the 24-hr taf period at KUIN. Just beyond the 
end of the taf period, a brief period of light snow is possible 
while precipitation is ending. 


Specifics for kstl, ksus, kcps: despite several hours of 
persistent light rainfall at night along with steadily increasing 
surface dew points, ceilings have remained predominantly VFR at 
the St. Louis Metro area taf sites over the last 6 hours. Most 
perplexing. In any event, confidence in cig/vis trends is lower 
during the first 0-6 hours of the taf period compared to later, 
when a strong low pressure system will bring widespread rainfall 
and IFR conditions to the area. Conditions will deteriorate with 
time, especially after 10-12z. Winds will become westerly to 
northwesterly and increase behind a cold front towards the end of 
the 30-hr taf period.
