NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Des Moines Iowa 
545 PM CST sun Jan 25 2015 


Short term /tonight/... 
issued at 340 PM CST sun Jan 25 2015 


Another system will impact Iowa again tonight. An upper level short 
wave over Manitoba this afternoon will race southeast into Minnesota 
overnight. A couple forcing mechanisms to contend overnight. 
Increasing Theta-E advection will develop south of the approaching 
system and move east across the state after 06z. As this 
occurs...middle level lapse rates increase and may be enough for a few 
convective snow showers to develop. Moisture availability will be 
the primary limiting factor and should limit areal coverage. The 
kinematic forcing associated with the short wave will arrive over 
mainly northeast Iowa after 09z and will have some overlap with the 
thermodynamic forcing. This will be the region with the best 
potential for some light snow to develop late. Temperatures will 
drop initially then begin to rise over western Iowa toward daybreak 
with the arrival of westerly downslope flow. 


Long term /Monday through Sunday/... 
issued at 340 PM CST sun Jan 25 2015 


Today the models are in less agreement with the long term than they 
were yesterday. The GFS has done the biggest turn around and now 
only brings a quick shot of cold air into the state Friday into 
Saturday then warms the state back up. There will certainly be 
several more iterations to the forecast to be sure. 


On Monday a large upper ridge builds over The Rockies and High 
Plains with a deep trough over the East Coast into the Great Lakes. 
A weak shortwave slides down the flow across eastern Minnesota and Iowa 
through WI and into Illinois. The wave is weak but there is some forcing 
in the dendritic layer. However moisture is somewhat in question as 
there is a dry layer between the dendritic zone and the surface. At 
any rate it would be a quick shot in the morning before the building 
ridge to the west pushes everything into Illinois. 


The upper ridge then builds into the upper Midwest through midweek 
and temperatures will respond nicely with highs bouncing back into the 40s 
and 50s...possibly upper 50s southwest. At this point I will be 
playing highs on Wednesday a little conservatively with a potent 
shortwave approaching through the day. At this point models are 
pretty consistent with bringing the wave into the west by 00z 
Thursday but my confidence in the models...at least the GFS...in 
general is not great due to the shift it has done in the later 
periods. 


Wednesday night into Thursday there will be two short waves back to 
back affecting the state. Models vary with the intensity of the 
Wednesday shortwave pushing across the area. The GFS is the 
strongest with the Canadian being weakest and the Euro somewhere in 
the middle being a weaker than the GFS but a little faster than the 
Canadian. The GFS is suggesting adequate forcing with the wave and 
all models are lacking moisture with this system. At this point I 
went dry with the initial wave on Wednesday. The second wave comes 
in out of the northern plains on the heels of the first wave. The 
timeframe for this is from about 09z Thursday through about 18z 
Thursday. Models are once again all over the place with intensity 
and timing. Here the Euro is more intense with the wave while the 
GFS is a little weather and faster. The Canadian is the weakest of 
the three. The Euro also has a much broader area of quantitative precipitation forecast with this 
system and with colder air coming in the only certainty...snow will 
be possible. However given the model differences I felt that slight 
chance/ low end chance probability of precipitation especially NE/ecen were all that was 
warrantied. 


The next wave approaches for Friday night/Saturday and model 
differences continue this time with the GFS being stronger and 
faster. If you believe the GFS the north/northeast will get clipped 
by this system with little precipitation affecting the area. The Euro 
keeps precipitation in Minnesota and WI. Model differences really kick in for the 
rest of the weekend and what looked to be a cold weekend now is in 
question. The Euro is still advertising an even stronger trough 
over the upper Midwest and Great Lakes area with an equally intense 
ridge over the West Coast while the GFS has completely flipped from 
yesterday and now has weak troughing further east with ridging 
building back over The Rockies. Wile this would mean cooler temperatures 
than middle week it is far from the middle 20s advertised yesterday. For 
now I did not go crazy with temperatures but did warm at least southern 
Iowa up at least a category and if the GFS is right...we'll be much 
warmer than that but if the Euro verifies...we'll be much colder. 
Lots of things to keep an eye on over the upcoming week.&&

Aviation...26/00z 
issued at 539 PM CST sun Jan 25 2015 


Low MVFR ceilings will affect sites through beginning of period. A 
weak system will affect northern sites...kmcw and Kalo near 06z 
which may bring brief periods of IFR ceilings and snow...though for 
now have kept ceilings low MVFR with uncertainty of southern 
extent of lowest ceilings and precipitation. Conditions will 
slowly improve near and beyond 12z...though may be too optimistic 
with improvement. Expect conditions to be VFR by end of period. 
Winds will be from the north...becoming southerly with passage of 
system near 12z...shifting back to the northeast for remainder of 
period.
