NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Des Moines Iowa 
640 am CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 


Short term /today/... 
issued at 300 am CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 


Main concern remains the arrival of the rainfall associated with a 
pronounced ribbon of thetae advection with a retreating warm 
front now entering northeast Iowa. Ridge aloft is weakening the 
band of showers and isolated thunder moving east across the area while 
another area of showers is developing west of the first line and 
moving northeast toward central/northern Iowa at 07z. For the 
remainder of the overnight...thunder will gradient diminish and some 
patchy fog will form west with showers continuing over the area 
generally east of i35 after 12z and exiting the area about 18z 
today. Both the hrrr and the nmm are in general agreement with the 
main area of rain over the east after 12z and exiting east by midday 
and current trends support this scenario. As clouds depart... mild 
air behind the boundary should warm quickly with highs reaching 
the lower 70s west to the middle to upper 60s east. Bufr soundings 
indicate some cumulus early on in the afternoon...but mainly sunny by 
middle to late afternoon. 


Long term /tonight through Tuesday/... 
issued at 300 am CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 


The main issue of the extended was with temperatures Friday into 
the weekend...and with precipitation chances late Monday into Tuesday. 
Leaned toward the warmer European model (ecmwf)/GFS/sref for Friday and 
Saturday...then closer to the European model (ecmwf) Sunday through middle next week. 


Tonight into Sunday...nice warm day anticipated for Friday with 
good warm air advection ahead of next weak shortwave set to move across the 
state during the afternoon. This looks to mainly bring a westerly 
wind shift late in the day. Tweaked maximum temperatures up a degree or two 
with good mixing and southwest flow. 850mb temperatures rise into the 
+14c to +18c range by 18z Friday. Saturday looks to be dry and 
slightly cooler with some weak cold air advection...but still looks to be above 
normal for maximum temperatures. 


The 850mb ridge moves east of the forecast area by Sunday morning 
allowing for some strong return flow into the state. The caveat is 
cloud cover associated with some decent Theta-E advection moving 
across the state. This should help balance out the warm air advection...and only 
went slightly warmer than guidance in the southwest for highs 
Sunday. The European model (ecmwf) and GFS have show some broad isentropic lift by 
the late afternoon into the evening Sunday and may spawn some 
light showers across the northeast. 


Monday through Tuesday...much of the forecast area remains in the 
warm sector Monday and remains capped off. Thus...went completely 
dry across the southern half of the forecast area during the day 
Monday. The cold front and trough move through the region Monday 
night into Tuesday...with the European model (ecmwf) a bit stronger and deeper with 
the upper level trough while the GFS is stronger with the surface 
low. Regardless...Monday night into Tuesday looks to be the best 
potential for next significant precipitation. Much colder Tuesday and 
even into the rest of the week with the region remaining in 
northwest flow aloft.

Aviation...23/12z 
issued at 635 am CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 


Showers and isolated thunder exiting to the east prior to 15z. IFR ceilings 
and low visibility have developed across the area west of i35 and will 
continue to affect the area through 15-17z...longest east. 
Daytime heating will help erode the fog/low St though it will take 
a few hours more time. Remainder of forecast will be pleasant with 
light winds and generally clear skies after 20z. /Rev
