NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Des Moines Iowa 
630 PM CDT Friday Sep 19 2014 


Short term /tonight/... 
issued at 351 PM CDT Friday Sep 19 2014 


Strong mixing will persist through the late afternoon 
hours before decoupling by around 23z to 00z tonight. Pressure 
gradient should remain strong enough to keeps sustained winds at or above 12 
knots before the weak cold front pushes across the forecast area 
late this evening into the overnight hours. Very limited moisture 
and forcing with the cold front...but latest hrrr/hopwrf bring the 
best precipitation chances from 03z to 09z Saturday. Have highest probability of precipitation 
going during this time frame. Low confidence with the severe weather 
potential but cannot completely rule an isolated pulse severe storm 
with some elevated instability available. 


Long term /Saturday through Friday/... 
issued at 351 PM CDT Friday Sep 19 2014 


Thunderstorms trying to hang on for Saturday afternoon primarily 
south and east of the Des Moines metropolitan area through the Iowa 
Missouri border. Cold frontal passage main trigger for any storm development. 
Problem is that the cold front is looking fairly weak and not a lot 
of frontogenetical forcing indicated during the daytime. Models 
showing bullseye of cape of 2000 j/kg over southern Iowa with around 
30-40kts of 0-6km bulk shear. Models also showing this as a 
looking at sounding profiles...any thunderstorms would likely be 
elevated. Though precipitable waters  are +1 to +2 Standard dev for early 
Saturday...sounding profile looking very unsaturated. Aloft...the 
right exit region of the jet streak will be right behind this 
front so this will not support lift. In all...expecting storms 
south...but severe threat will be minimal at best. 


Models coming into good agreement with showing a sizable ridge 
coming off The Rockies through the Dakotas Sunday into Monday. This 
will keep the dmx County Warning Area in cold air advection through Monday morning. Strong 
subsidence with this ridge should clear skies out for Sunday and 
Monday mornings. 850mb temperatures appear to be in the +8c to +10c range 
for the morning hours. Which should be supportive of lows in the middle 
40s to low 50s. Ridge to propagate through Iowa Monday 
afternoon...placing the County Warning Area in southerly flow late Monday into 
Tuesday. This will allow for some slight warm air advection for Tuesday and Wednesday...along 
with a return of probability of precipitation. 


Wednesday into Thursday...models showing a decent slug of moisture 
transport being advected into Iowa during the morning by 25-30kt 
winds at 850mb. GFS trying to push a vorticity maximum through during this 
time frame. GFS also showing decent middle to upper level q-vector 
convergence to help generate lift. At 1 to 1.25 inches...precipitable water 
values return to 0 to +1 Standard dev above normal. Enough support to 
keep sounding profile saturated aloft. Putting it all 
together...will buy into probability of precipitation for Wednesday am into the PM. Question is 
how long to sustain them as the progression of this pattern 
becomes murky from Thursday into the weekend. 


00z models hinted at an Omega block setting up across the Continental U.S.. 
Euro and GFS 500mb analysis both had pattern trying to organize and 
are placing Iowa on the western edge of the high...which is where 
the deformation zone is typically located. If this setup becomes 
more organized...could be a prolonged period of scattered precipitation 
into and throughout the weekend. The 12z runs retrograded this 
shortwave/trough and dissolved it by the weekend...which seems 
suspect. Hopefully tomorrow/S model runs will be able to offer a 
better solution. Regardless...it appears 850mb temperatures will be in the 
+12c to +14c range which would suggest temperatures near to 
slightly above normal for next week.

Aviation...20/00z 
issued at 630 PM CDT Friday Sep 19 2014 


Mainly VFR conditions expected...with some lower VFR ceilings expected 
with a frontal passage overnight and associated possibility of 
-shra/-tsra. Have mentioned thunderstorms in the vicinity for the best chances in a 3 to 4 
hour period at the different taf sites. Frontal boundary will take 
its time progressing across the County Warning Area...and will be in the vicinity 
of kotm toward the end of the forecast period. Winds to shift 
around to the west to northwest behind the boundary as well.
