NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service St Louis MO 
236 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: (saturday through tuesday) 
issued at 342 am CDT Wed Apr 23 2014 


While the medium range guidance is coming into better agreement on 
the overall synoptic pattern, the smaller scale is still unclear. 
Generally, a secondary cold front will dip south across the upper 
Midwest driven south by the last vestiges of thursday's shortwave. 
The front will stall somewhere across the Midwest on Saturday, 
though models can't make up their minds where. GFS stalls the front 
across south/southwest Missouri Saturday morning, while the European model (ecmwf) 
stalls it out over northern Iowa. The Gem is right about in the 
middle stalling the front over northern Missouri. All three models 
have some low level baroclinicity over our area, whether it is the 
primary baroclinic zone associated with the front (gfs/gem) or a 
secondary baroclinic zone left over from the Pacific airmass which 
will be exiting to the east (ec). Warm advection begins Saturday 
morning with a 30+ kt low level jet pointed at this baroclinic zone 
and all three models print out some light precip. Have therefore 
kept chance pops going in central Missouri, and would not be 
surprised if subsequent shifts need to bump up pops a bit more 
across the area if model trends become more consistent. 


The front remains stalled somewhere between Springfield Missouri and 
Davenport Iowa depending on which model you believe through Monday 
as the longwave trof over the Pacific moves inland, and becomes 
negatively tilted over The Rockies and Great Plains. A strong 
surface low develops as a result and it moves into the Mississippi 
Valley Monday night into Tuesday. The upper trof cuts off and 
becomes stagnant while the surface low tracks across Missouri into 
the Ohio Valley Tuesday. Pattern is more reminiscent of late fall 
or winter than mid to late Spring. Unsure how likely this is to 
happen, but this is at least the second run in a row that i've seen 
do this. Will have to wait and see, but right now it looks like a 
cold/wet end to April.

Aviation: (for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon) 
issued at 1223 PM CDT Wed Apr 23 2014 


Area of showers currently over western Missouri is expected to weaken 
this afternoon and is not expected to affect kcou or KUIN at this 
time. Main impact will be increasing midlevel cloudiness at 
terminals. Southeast winds are expected to prevail through the 
night ahead of next system which will move eastward. Southerly 
low-level jet of 40-45 knots near 2000 feet above ground level over central 
Missouri and west- central Illinois could produce low- level wind 
shear and added mention for kcou and KUIN. For tomorrow...another 
area of showers with embedded thunderstorms is expected to move 
into the area from west to east ahead of a cold front from late 
morning into the early afternoon. Actual frontal passage and 
accompanied wind shift is likely to be after this valid forecast 
period. 




Specifics for kstl: 


Increasing midlevel cloudiness is expected through the afternoon at 
the terminal. Southeast winds are expected to prevail through the night 
ahead of next system which will move eastward. Low-level jet axis 
should stay to the west of kstl precluding mention of low level wind shear. For 
tomorrow...another area of showers with embedded thunderstorms is 
expected to affect Lambert Field around midday. However...actual 
frontal passage and accompanied wind shift is likely to be just after 
this valid forecast period.
