NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Des Moines Iowa 
647 PM CDT Friday Mar 27 2015 


Short term /tonight/... 
issued at 311 PM CDT Friday Mar 27 2015 


Weak middle-level shortwave and 500mb vorticity maximum will cut 
across northwest to south-central Iowa this evening. Models are in 
good agreement with overall location of probability of precipitation this evening with the 
hrrr roughly 2 maybe 3 hours too fast with onset of precipitation compared 
to other hires models. Leaned toward the rap/sref/hopwrf blend for 
timing. 


The shortwave embedded within the 500mb north to northwest flow will 
enter the state by around 00z with onset of precipitation b/T 00z-02z over 
western Iowa. It will take a little time for surface layer to become 
saturated...if at all...this evening which should limit the snow 
accumulations. Still...there is a brief stint when the forcing in 
the dendritic layer will cause it to snow hard enough for it to 
reach the surface and accumulate. Mainly a few tenths of inch 
possible and no more than a half inch anticipated over the 
southwest. Increased probability of precipitation with higher confidence in snow and only 
some minor tweaks with the snow amounts. May see some fzdz on the 
tale end of the event with the column losing ice introduction early 
Saturday morning. 


Long term /Saturday through Friday/... 
issued at 311 PM CDT Friday Mar 27 2015 


Little change to previous challenges coming up in the extended 
package. By early Saturday the weak upper level shortwave digging 
southeast on the backside of the h500 upper level trough will be 
exiting southwest Iowa...taking any residual light snow away from 
the region. With the high amplitude pattern continuing...next 
upstream wave is just entering the Pacific northwest from near 
Washington/British Columbia areas. Water vapor shows the system nicely and 
expected trajectory brings the wave into the northern plains by 
06z Sunday. Just ahead of the upper level system a second system 
over central Canada will be increasing southerly winds across the 
plains...resulting in stronger warm air advection moving north as 
well as an adiabatic warming component aiding in warming west of 
the region. Some questions remain about the evolution of the 
forcing/moisture across the Central Plains with this fast moving 
system. The models remain split with the GFS/NAM drier than the 
Gem/Euro though there has been a trend in the past run for better 
consistency in amounts of precipitation...not so much on timing. 
The latter will have significant implications on daytime highs on 
Sunday with a spread of about 10 degrees between the two pairs of 
models mentioned above. With cold air advection briefly returning 
with the passage of the system Sunday...will continue to lean 
toward the Euro/Gem thermal structure aloft and cooler daytime 
highs. Winds may become an issue for Sunday as stronger northwest 
flow will follow the cold front Sunday afternoon. Mixed layer top 
winds approaching 40kt or higher at Kalo and kmcw and may need to 
consider some headlines for wind in the next few shifts. By Monday 
..another fast moving wave will move southeast...Tracking just 
north of Iowa across central or northern Minnesota. This will keep all of 
the forcing north of the area with the only impact to the forecast being 
much warmer temperatures. Have raised highs on Monday to the upper 
60s to lower 70s given the consensus h850 readings of 6c to 9c... 
modest west southwesterly flow aloft...and some sunshine through 
the afternoon. Both the GFS/Euro are coming into more agreement 
for the Tuesday-Thursday period of next week with active weather pattern 
to continue. Increasing moisture from the Southern Plains/Gulf 
will be injected into the midweek system. The timing is critical 
for any threat for thunder or severe potential. The 12z GFS is now 
advertising a fair amount of instability on Wednesday...a change 
from the past 2 days and the new Euro is also showing thunder for 
the afternoon/evening hours. A quick look at both models have the 
middle and upper level wind maxes continuing to lag the low level 
h850 forcing and moisture transport. With features out of 
phase...likely that any severe that might develop would not be 
long lasting or extensive...and mainly a result of increasing 
instability late day to early evening. This would be more likely 
across the west third of the forecast area Tuesday afternoon. Will 
trend toward blended pop for the day with thunder mainly in the 
afternoon hours and evening hours. By Thursday night and Friday 
some cooler air arrives once again with a shield of overrunning 
precipitation and possible thunder. Pattern looking wetter with 
southern stream becoming more active. Colder weather returns by 
the weekend.

Aviation...28/00z 
issued at 646 PM CDT Friday Mar 27 2015 


Light snow will drop from the Dakotas/Minnesota border into western Iowa 
tonight but will largely leave taf sites unaffected with nothing 
more than lowering VFR cloudiness and potentially some virga at 
kfod/kdsm/kotm. Thus entire period is VFR with nothing more than 
middle cloud ceilings. Light and variable winds will increase slightly 
and become southerly/southeasterly overnight into Sat.
