NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service St Louis MO 
329 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 1 2015 


Short term: (through late tonight) 
issued at 249 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 1 2015 


Activity this afternoon is diminishing, so most places to just see 
widely scattered activity through the early evening hours. Then 
next round of activity to fireup, mainly over west central MO near 
surface low then track east and south along the frontal boundary. 
Exact track of complex of storms hard to pin down, but still feel 
that best chances of storms with heavy rain will be over central 
and southeast MO. Could see one to two inches of rainfall in this 
area overnight tonight as precipitable water values remain around two inches, so 
very efficient rain makers expected and kept Flash Flood Watch 
going until 12z Thursday. Otherwise, lows to be a bit below normal 
in the low 60s to around 70. 


Byrd 


Long term: (thursday through next wednesday) 
issued at 249 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 1 2015 


On Thursday, frontal boundary to push south of forecast area and 
remain stalled just south of forecast area through the Holiday 
weekend. Will see several rounds of showers and thunderstorms 
with best chances over southeast MO and southern IL, particularly 
during the afternoon and evening hours. High temperatures through 
the weekend will be a bit below normal in the middle 70s to middle 80s 
with overnight lows in the 60s. 


Then beginning Sunday night, next weather system to approach area 
from the northwest. So will see off and on chances Monday through 
Wednesday next week. Temperatures to remain a bit below normal 
through the rest of the forecast period. 


Byrd 
&& 


Aviation: (for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon) 
issued at 1246 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 1 2015 


Difficult aviation forecast this afternoon. Latest guidance 
suggests there should be an increase in thunderstorm activity 
later this afternoon or early this evening. The problem is that no 
one model agrees with another on timing, coverage, or what parts 
of the area will see the thunderstorms. Think the highest threat 
for storms will be after 22z along and south of the I-70 corridor. 
Until then, scattered showers will continue to move southeast 
across the area...with occasional MVFR ceilings at or below 2500 
feet. Expect thunderstorms to continue at least into the middle to late 
evening producing occasional IFR conditions in heavy rain. Storms 
should weaken and at least partially dissipate before sunrise 
Thursday. Low end MVFR/IFR ceilings are likely to persist even 
after the rain ends. 


Specifics for kstl: 


Scattered showers will move from central MO into the vicinity of 
the terminal later this afternoon. Additional thunderstorm 
development is likely late this afternoon into the evening, but 
timing and areal coverage of the storms is uncertain. Some storms 
will likely produce IFR conditions in heavy rain, but am not 
confident enough yet to try to time that in the taf. Storms should 
dissipate overnight but lingering low ceilings and fog will likely 
prevail well into Thursday morning.
