NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Des Moines Iowa 
627 am CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Short term /today/... 
issued at 348 am CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Precipitation chances today will be main forecast concern. Large 
upper level low pressure system will push slowly east from Colorado. 
Surface boundary associated with low currently located from western 
Nebraska to eastern Kansas has ongoing convection along line. This 
will push slowly eastward with low...bringing best chances for 
precipitation late in the day. Models continue to be a bit slower 
with this progression...and have cut back on best precipitation 
chances to later in the day...generally entering County Warning Area near 18z. 
Subjectively analyzed weak surface boundary stretched from central 
Nebraska to south central Iowa has allowed for scattered showers and 
thunderstorms to develop early this morning. This will persist and 
continue to lift slowly northeast throughout the morning hours. 
Therefore...expect precipitation to come in two waves today...with 
early morning precipitation continuing as system lifts 
northeast...and may expand as better forcing arrives as low moves 
east...and better chances with boundary associated with low. Have 
kept thunder mentioned to isolated as instability is present but 
generally weak. Better instability comes late in the 
day...especially in the west and may see more widespread thunder in 
the afternoon. Along with weak instability...shear remains weak 
though...cannot rule out an isolated severe thunderstorm with large 
hail or damaging winds as the main threats. 


Long term /tonight through Friday/... 
issued at 348 am CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


The upper low pressure over Colorado today will begin to shift 
east tonight and transition to an open wave. One strong impulse 
ahead of the system will be over western Iowa by 00z this evening 
with modest qg forcing and upper level divergence over central and 
northern Iowa. The moisture transport will be maximized during 
this time near the Interstate 35 corridor and will lift northeast 
through the remainder of the evening. Profiles will be quite 
saturated through the evening with precipitable water values near 1.25 inches. 
Overall instability will be relatively weak and only 2oo j/kg or 
less. Continued trend of showers with isolated thunderstorms 
embedded in the activity. Some drier air does try to entrain into 
the region behind this wave of precipitation and should result in 
a period of little to no precipitation after 06z and into Sunday 
morning. Fog may need to be considered yet for tonight considering 
the amount of low level saturation and weak surface flow. 


Another wave of showers and isolated thunderstorms is 
expected to develop in advance of a cold front moving across the 
state during the day on Sunday. Profiles will continue to remain 
quite saturated on Sunday ahead of the boundary and with a strong 
low pressure system lifting into the lower Ohio Valley during the 
day...clouds should remain in place and hold temperatures down 
into the 50s and 60s. Total rainfall amounts through Sunday will 
likely top 1 inch in some locations. Northwest winds behind the 
boundary will become quite gusty and may approach Wind Advisory 
criteria over the western forecast area. 


The system moving into the northern plains tonight and Sunday will 
become a large closed upper low that will be the dominant weather 
feature for the state though much of next week and keep the state 
in cyclonic flow early then transition to more true northwest flow 
later in the period as the system shifts slowly east. Dry air and 
profiles conducive to deep mixing can be expected Monday and 
Tuesday along with breezy to gusty northwest winds. Dewpoints will 
be dropping into the 20s so the potential for temperatures to drop 
below freezing is there Monday night and Tuesday night though 
winds should at 10 miles per hour Monday night with a good pressure gradient 
in place. These winds should prevent frost formation and will keep 
profiles mixed enough to hold temperatures up a few degrees. The 
upper low will make more progress east Thursday into Friday though 
850 mb temperatures will generally be below 0c through Friday. 
With this cold air around...highly likely that there will be one 
to two frost events with the best chances Tuesday night and 
Wednesday night. Some hope of breaking this pattern into next 
weekend with some hints at an Omega block developing which would 
force upper ridging and warmer temperatures back into the Midwest.

Aviation...18/12z 
issued at 625 am CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Boundary will bring thunderstorms and rain and rain showers chances to sites today and will 
persist through period. Will see MVFR ceilings and visibilities 
with rain beginning at western sites kfod/kdsm near 18z and pushing 
east through 06z. May see thunderstorms and rain at sites...though have not include 
mention at this time with ts expected to be isolated. IFR or lower 
ceilings and visibilities will be possible near end of 
period...but have kept mention out at this time due to uncertainties in 
timing and development.
