NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Des Moines Iowa 
1241 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


..updated for aviation discussion... 


Short term /today/... 
issued at 325 am CDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


Thunderstorms have largely cleared out of the area...with an area 
of moderate stratiform rain and a few embedded lightning strikes 
currently lingering in our far south/southeast and slowly moving 
away. Because the heavy rain threat has ended the Flash Flood 
Watch has been cancelled. Once the rain clears our forecast 
area...clouds will follow suit and a sunny and notably cooler and 
drier day is in store. No significant changes were made to the 
forecast and no weather of impact is anticipated...other than some 
moderate breezes across about the northern half of the state. 


Long term /tonight through Tuesday/... 
issued at 325 am CDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


Much quieter weather in store through the remainder of the work 
week and then there will be one system over the weekend to affect 
much of Iowa. 


Tonight through Friday...surface high pressure continues to build 
over the region with a large upper level ridge holding in place 
over the southern half of the country on Thursday. Iowa begins to 
transition to northwest flow as the upper ridge strengthens over 
the southwest by Friday. Temperatures were the main concern with 
decent mixing anticipated both Thursday and Friday. Leaned toward 
the warmer GFS for both days which caused a slight increase in maximum 
temperatures. A weak trough cuts across the state Friday but still not 
enough moisture present to cause for concern and left forecast dry 
at this time. 


Saturday through Monday...fairly strong 500mb shortwave rides the 
upper level ridge and pushes into Iowa late Saturday night into 
Sunday. The best forcing moves through the forecast during the 
overnight hours Saturday night into early Sunday morning and 
enough moisture present to keep high chance probability of precipitation going. Severe 
weather at this time looks limited with weak instability and shear 
depicted. Otherwise...another weak shortwave cuts across the state 
late Sunday night into Monday and may provide another round of 
storms. 


&& 


Aviation...29/18z 
issued at 1239 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


VFR conditions expected through taf period. Gusty winds across the 
north to diminish with sunset. At this time...left any mention of 
fog out of tafs as dewpoint depressions should be high enough and 
winds strong enough to inhibit radiative fog development. 


&& 


Dmx watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
