NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service St Louis MO 
244 am CDT Wed Aug 27 2014 


Synopsis: 
issued at 237 am CDT Wed Aug 27 2014 


Front is slowly making progress into the County Warning Area early this morning 
and is currently stretching from near Kansas City, Missouri to 
Quincy, Illinois. Some isolated thunderstorms continue to pop up 
here and there on outflow boundaries across eastern Missouri and 
west central Illinois, with a better defined cluster of convection 
now taking shape across far northwest Missouri. Temperatures 
remain mild with all locations still in the 70s this morning. 


Cvking 


&& 


Short term: (through tonight) 
issued at 237 am CDT Wed Aug 27 2014 


Elevated convection will continue to develop across northern 
Missouri early this morning with scattered thunderstorms forecast 
through the lunch hour across the northern counties of the County Warning Area. 


Front will make very slow progress south today. Temperatures will 
quickly rise into the 90s south of the front and due to pooled 
dewpoints in the lower to middle 70s, produce at least a few hours 
of heat indices above 100 degrees along and south of I-70. Although 
it won't be as hot as the past few days - feel current heat 
headlines are warranted given potential for one more day of heat 
indices reaching 105 degrees this afternoon. 


The front will also serve as the focus for convective initiation 
with scattered thunderstorms expected along and south of I-70 this 
afternoon. As was the case yesterday, a few of the storms could 
produce some gusty winds to 50 mph and torrential downpours. 


Diurnal convection expected to dissipate quickly after sunset with 
the focus for more elevated development shifting back north of the 
boundary across the northern reaches of the County Warning Area after midnight. 


Cvking 


Long term: (thursday through tuesday) 
issued at 237 am CDT Wed Aug 27 2014 


Boundary will be slow to lift back north on Thursday and may become 
orientated more northwest to southeast across the County Warning Area...paralleling 
the Mississippi River. Once again, afternoon convection will be 
possible in the vicinity of this front. 


The boundary should finally lift north as a warm front Thursday 
night with dry and seasonably warm weather expected on Friday 
ahead of the shortwave/cold front that approaches from the west. 


Have tried to focus likely pops Friday night and Saturday with this 
next system as blended guidance seems to give too long of a period 
of pops when compared to reality. So, after a wet and cooler 
beginning to the Labor Day weekend, it appears chances of 
precipitation will decrease for Sunday and Monday (labor day), with 
temperatures beginning to inch back up above normal in the wake 
of this storm system. 


Cvking

Aviation: (for the 06z tafs through 06z Wednesday night) 
issued at 1054 PM CDT Tue Aug 26 2014 


Cluster of storms northeast of the St Louis Metro area will 
likely slowly dissipate late tonight, although could not rule out 
an isolated storm along the outflow boundary moving southwestward 
through the St Louis Metro. The surface wind will temporarily 
switch to a northeast direction and pick up behind the outflow 
boundary. A cold front was across northern MO, just south of uin 
this evening. This front will sag slowly southward late tonight 
and Wednesday with scattered convection possible along and just 
north of this front. Latest hrrr model run keeps uin dry late 
tonight, but there may be at least isolated showers/storms in the 
uin area late tonight into Wednesday morning. Due to uncertainty 
in timing and coverage may keep the uin taf dry for now. With 
mostly light surface winds, mainly just high level clouds, and 
high surface dew points there will likely be some fog late 
tonight/early Wednesday morning mainly in sus and cps. The surface 
wind will be mainly nely in uin and cou Wednesday, and becoming 
nely Wednesday afternoon in the St Louis Metro area after fropa. 


Specifics for kstl: may need to include thunderstorms in the vicinity in the stl taf around 
06-07z late tonight if storms develop along outflow boundary 
dropping southwestward through stl. The wind will also briefly 
switch to a nely direction and become gusty around 06z behind the 
outflow boundary. Should have scattered diurnal cumulus clouds 
late Wednesday morning and afternoon as the atmosphere becomes 
very unstable along the weakening cold front which will sag 
southward through central MO. Will likely be isolated to scattered 
thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon, but may leave out of the stl 
taf for now. The surface wind will become nely Wednesday 
afternoon as the front sags south of stl.
