NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Des Moines Iowa 
317 am CST sun Nov 23 2014 


Short term /today/... 
issued at 317 am CST sun Nov 23 2014 


Low pressure is beginning to take shape over southwest Kansas into the 
OK Panhandle. Complicating the situation is the fact that there 
are two separate systems. At the same time the northern system is 
approaching the ND border this morning. The southern system will 
dominate through most of the day with rain spreading north and 
west with that system. The tricky part will be as the two systems 
merge. The bulk of that will take place tonight with the southern 
system being more dominant during the day...the cold air will be 
slower to move in. Once the wind shifts...temperatures will fall and did 
go non-diurnal with the temperature trends today. It will be very late 
in the forecast period before it will be cold enough for any 
mixing of precipitation. Will go with a mixture over the far west 
late in the period. The soundings indicate the change over will be 
clean and not have a freezing rain period in there and opted to go 
that Route. 


Long term /tonight through Friday/... 
issued at 317 am CST sun Nov 23 2014 


By tonight the cold front discussed in the short term section will 
be moving east of our area...however it will be undercutting 
fairly moist southwest flow aloft for much of the night. As a 
result rain will continue...especially across the southeast 
half...probably changing briefly to light snow before ending from 
west to east after midnight. Forecast soundings indicate that as 
cold air advection kicks in behind the surface front late the 
transition should be straight rain to snow...with most quantitative precipitation forecast coming 
in the form of rain and only light snow accumulations possible by 
Monday morning. 


Northwest winds will increase behind the front on Sunday 
night...then strengthen further on Monday as the departing surface 
low deepens to our northeast and the pressure gradient tightens 
across Iowa. Meanwhile the Sunday night precipitation will depart to the 
east...however a second lobe of vorticity aloft will generate 
clouds and flurries/light snow showers especially Monday 
afternoon. While thermal profiles appear favorable for some 
dendritic snow growth...the forcing within the snow layer is 
fairly weak and only very light accumulation is anticipated. 
However...given the strong winds if there are any more moderate 
snow showers then blowing snow could cause brief and spotty 
issues. At this point this appears unlikely given the expected 
lighter nature of the snow but it does bear monitoring. 


From Monday night into Tuesday night a weak surface ridge will 
slide across the region...bringing a reprieve from probability of precipitation as well as 
slowly moderating temperatures. Prognostic models are now 
unanimous in barreling a compact but robust clipper system 
southeastward across the upper Midwest on Tuesday night and 
Wednesday...with consensus taking the track of the system just 
northeast of our area. This will likely result in some light 
snowfall...especially across our north/northeast...followed by 
more northwest winds on Wednesday. Right now the snow potential 
appears limited in our forecast area...however if the track of the 
low shifts southward this may need to be revised so we will 
continue to monitor this system. 


From Wednesday night through the remainder of the work week a 
large Canadian high pressure center will exert its influence 
across the region...resulting in dry but much cooler weather 
during this period. The coldest temperatures will likely come 
Thursday and Thursday night with forecast highs only in the teens 
and 20s and lows in the single digits and teens. This will make 
for cold but generally benign traveling weather for the 
Thanksgiving Holiday.

Aviation...23/06z 
issued at 1126 PM CST Sat Nov 22 2014 


Moisture will continue to increase across area...with sites 
seeing primarily low MVFR or IFR conditions through period. For 
beginning of period may see IFR or LIFR conditions across 
sites...especially near 12z. -Dz and -ra will affect eastern 
sites...kotm/kdsm/Kalo beyond 12z which will lead to periods of 
IFR or LIFR ceilings and visibilities. Conditions will improve 
towards 00z...though will remain MVFR. Winds will switch to the 
northwest beyond 00z and will become strong and gusty near 06z.
