NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Des Moines Iowa 
627 am CDT Friday may 29 2015 


Short term /today/... 
issued at 348 am CDT Friday may 29 2015 


Primary forecast challenge for today is timing and coverage of 
precipitation across the area. Currently storms are developing 
quickly across northwest Iowa...with a separate band of light 
showers and a few storms lingering across east and southeast 
Iowa...but elsewhere it has been dry thus far. Observations and 
analyses show southwesterly flow aloft and ample low level moisture 
but also the lack of a focusing mechanism or boundary and only light 
surface winds. The implication is that while widespread but modest 
instability and broad weak ascent will support isolated to scattered 
showers and thunderstorms at any given time...coverage should remain 
low for much of the day as depicted by most short term and high 
resolution models...with two exceptions. The first is the next 
several hours in our northwest and north where the more numerous 
showers and storms currently depicted on radar should advect across 
these areas. There is a distinct lack of development 
upstream...across northeastern Nebraska...so far and in general the 
coverage of storms in this area should diminish steadily after 
sunrise. The second exception is toward this evening as a well 
advertised cold front approaches from the northwest. Combined with 
peak heating and perhaps a weak shortwave impulse moving through the 
flow aloft...expect an increase in storm coverage and intensity 
after 21z or so beginning in the northwest and then spreading 
southeastward. Instability and shear will be limited so any severe 
weather threat should be isolated and marginal. 


Long term /tonight through Thursday/... 
issued at 348 am CDT Friday may 29 2015 


Sensible weather will be relatively inactive through the period with 
only appreciable precipitation concern early and again late...and even 
those are not too significant. Water vapor imagery shows a broad 
area of lift entering the MO valley with scattered weak embedded 
convection. There is no discernible kinematic or thermodynamic 
forcing mechanism to pin down much in the way of lift 
contributions. Precipitation mainly appears to be unorganized in weak 
instability with little cinh. This scattered convection will 
likely just be exiting eastern Iowa at onset with additional weak 
convection driven more kinematically from approaching southern 
Canada/ND short wave. There may also be some weak surface based 
potential due to convergence along the front but MLCAPE convective available potential energy are 
minimal so Storm Prediction Center marginal outlook seems appropriate. Could be some 
locally heavy rains as Southern Plains elevated precipitable waters  push into southeastern 
Iowa...but residence time ahead of the front will likely preclude a 
widespread or significant concern. The aforementioned northern stream 
kinematic forcing will likely drive some weak Post-frontal 
convection overnight...lingering into Sat morning southeast. 


Cold frontal passage will bring appreciably cooler and especially 
drier air into the weekend with baroclinic trough into Iowa sun and 850 mb/700 mb 
return flow starting an extended period of warm advection through 
the middle/upper MO valley early next week. This will be enhanced by 
some kinematic support from short wave ejected out of current British Columbia 
trough. Instability and moisture return are fairly weak but 
300-310k isent lift seems strong enough to generate some weak 
convection and with east-southeast mean wind flow would not be surprised to 
see something dribble into northern Iowa from Minnesota...especially 
nocturnally. These conditions go from Sun night into Tuesday night and 
do not have the confidence to add that extended of wording yet so 
have opted to keep things dry until confidence increases. 
Something to monitor. Surface pattern does not change much with 
weak southeasterly low level flow...gradually becoming more southerly with time 
into Wednesday. There really is not anything to hang your hat on for 
probability of precipitation again until late in the period...Wednesday night or Thursday and even 
this may be overdone. It would likely be elevated with any surface 
convergence still too far west. This pattern will also return more 
seasonal temperatures as well.

Aviation...29/12z 
issued at 627 am CDT Friday may 29 2015 


Mainly VFR conditions will prevail today...with MVFR conditions 
becoming widespread tonight. Some low MVFR/IFR ceilings...mainly up at 
mcw...should clear out in the next several hours after which 
prevailing MVFR ceilings are expected. Isolated rain showers/thunderstorms and rain will bubble up 
during the day...but probability and duration of any impacts are 
too small for inclusion in the tafs. By late this afternoon/evening we will 
see an increase in rain showers/thunderstorms and rain coverage as a cold front 
approaches...then passes through the area overnight. Even outside 
rain showers/thunderstorms and rain this front will bring prevailing MVFR ceilings...probably 
below fl020 at times...and have indicated this in the tafs. Only 
went with vcsh for now as there are questions as to the frequency 
and duration of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain that will develop tonight.
