NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Chicago/Romeoville Illinois 
1005 am CST Wednesday Jan 28 2015 


Short term... 
345 am CST 


Today through Friday night... 


Main forecast concerns in the short term are cloud and temperature trends 
today and tonight...and timing...coverage and type of precipitation 
tonight and Thursday as low pressure organizing over the plains 
moves east. 


Relatively quiet weather this morning as surface high pressure 
drifts slowly east of the area. Subsidence associated with height 
rises aloft has led to a strong inversion at around 900 hpa however 
per dvn 00z sounding...which has trapped low clouds across the 
western portions of the forecast area overnight. Clouds were slowly 
eroding from the southeast thanks to 950-900 hpa winds gradually 
veering to the southeast and south...and lowering subsidence 
inversion. Rap guidance indicates south winds will increase this 
morning and should continue to lift these lower clouds north toward 
the WI border...though overall north central Illinois is likely to 
be cloudier than areas south and east today even as middle and high 
clouds begin to increase as warm advection develops aloft. 


Surface low pressure is already taking shape across the plains to 
our west this morning...in response to a short wave trough emerging 
from the central/northern rockies. Surface pressure falls ahead of 
this developing low will lead to increasing south-southeast winds 
near 25 miles per hour this afternoon. Despite southerly flow...low level 
parcel trajectories will be largely from Indiana/Ohio where strong 
cooling has occurred near the surface high this morning. Combined 
with some middle/high cloud cover this may make for high temperatures 
coming later in the day when low level winds veer more southerly and 
tap milder air currently across the Missouri Valley. Strong south 
flow will continue tonight ahead of the approaching surface 
low...allowing temperatures to stay above freezing in most areas. 


Guidance in good agreement in developing some light spotty 
precipitation across the area late this evening...expanding 
overnight especially across northern/northeastern parts of the 
forecast area. Forecast soundings indicate warm layer temperatures aloft in 
the +5c range or better...with saturation initially occurring below 
700 hpa and supporting light rain. With breezy south surface winds 
keeping temperatures above mainly above freezing...precipitation type is 
expected to remain liquid in most locations. Low probability does 
exist for light freezing rain especially across far north/northeast 
Illinois...but at this time feel it is fairly unlikely. The surface 
low...and a pair of unable-phased short waves....move across the County Warning Area 
during the morning and result in winds shifting to the northwest. 
This brings colder air into the region with collapsing thickness 
fields supporting lingering precipitation changing over from light 
rain to a brief rain/sleet/snow mix before ending from west-east. 
Most precipitation should end by noon west of about the Illinois/in state 
line...and shortly after across Northwest Indiana. However...gusty 
north-northwest winds and colder air spreading across Lake Michigan 
will likely support lake effect snow showers across parts of Eastern 
Lake and Porter counties especially Thursday evening into early 
Friday morning. The remainder of the area will just be blustery and 
colder...with north-northwest winds gusting above 30 miles per hour at times 
Thursday before slowly diminishing Thursday night. After morning 
highs in the middle-upper 30s or even near 40 in some spots...Thursday 
night looks to be cold with lows in the teens to low 20s and single 
digit wind chills. 


Surface high pressure spreads into the area again on Friday...with 
temperatures struggling into the middle-upper 20s but with much lighter 
winds. Lake snow showers will diminish across Northwest Indiana as 
inversion heights lower and low level winds diminish...with sunshine 
elsewhere. 


Ratzer 


&& 


Long term... 
345 am CST 


Saturday through Tuesday... 


The main focus in the extended period is on a storm system which 
looks to lift through the Ohio Valley late Saturday night through 
Sunday. European model (ecmwf)/GFS are in relatively good agreement in taking surface 
low track along the Ohio River...though GFS is a little slower and 
gefs ensemble members still show quite a bit of spread in their 
solutions at the surface. Gem also slower and a bit farther south 
than the other global models. Depending upon how this system 
eventually tracks...it could be a snow producer for all or part of 
the County Warning Area...as it taps Gulf moisture deformation band would likely 
cross central IL/in. Global models also indicate a strong surge of 
Arctic air in the wake of this system...with significantly colder 
weather I.E. Lows +/- single digits and highs perhaps only in the 
teens by Monday/Tuesday.

//Ord and mdw concerns...updated 16z... 


* gusty south-southeast surface winds developing by early 
afternoon and strengthening into evening. 


* Scattered light rain showers likely and MVFR ceilings developing 
overnight...and the possibility of a brief mix with snow and IFR 
visibility before ending Thursday morning. 


* South-southwest winds at 2000 feet of at least 50 knots this evening 
into overnight that may create low-level wind shear. 


* Northwest winds gusting to around 30 knots during the day Thursday. 


Kmd 


//discussion...updated 12z... 


Current batch of MVFR ceilings across northwest Illinois early this 
morning is being steered on southerly winds early this 
morning...with rfd likely to experience at least temporary 2000 feet 
ceilings or so through mid-morning. With the approach of low 
pressure...south-southeast winds will increase with gusts likely 
in the afternoon and persisting...and likely strengthening...into 
the evening as strong pressure falls envelop the region. Given the 
current and forecast placement of the low pressure...the wind 
direction should be east of south much of today and early this 
evening...before gradually veering ahead of a front late tonight. 
A channel of strong southwest winds aloft...around 2000-3000 
feet...are likely to be 50 plus knots tonight and could result in 
some low-level wind shear...although surface winds will remain 
also increased in somewhat mixed conditions. 


The cold front will pass in the pre-dawn hours Thursday. Ahead of 
this front saturation should slowly occur near the inversion 
level...which is expected to be around 2000-3000 feet so ceilings of 
that height should gradually develop as tonight progresses. In 
addition...there will be potential for scattered rain 
showers...with any rain possibly changing to a rain and snow mix 
after sunrise Thursday. Any mix is not likely to last long before 
ending...so accumulations should be only a trace. 


//Ord and mdw confidence...updated 16z... 


* high in wind direction and speed today and this 
evening...including the wind direction remaining slightly east 
of south. 


* Medium in precipitation occurring at the airfield later tonight 
and early Thursday morning. 


* High in MVFR ceilings late tonight into Thursday morning. Medium in any 
IFR occurring. 


Kmd 


//outlook for Ord/mdw for 00z Friday-12z Wednesday...updated 12z... 


Thursday night...mainly VFR. North-northwest winds. 
Friday...VFR. Northwest winds. 
Saturday...chance of snow and IFR during the night. Southwest 
winds. 
Sunday...snow and IFR likely. Northeast winds. 
Monday...chance of snow with MVFR likely. IFR possible. Northwest 
winds. 
Tuesday...chance of snow during the night. Southwest winds.

Marine... 
158 am CST 


An active period will unfold over Lake Michigan through this 
forecast thanks to the progressive nature in the weather pattern. 
High pressure early this morning will exit the picture and a quickly 
approaching low pressure from the west will bring increasing 
southerly winds later today into this evening. During the evening 
there is a period where occasional gales should occur across the 
southern half as some instability will be present with gale force 
winds only 1000-1500 feet off the water surface. The low should be 
elongated right down the axis of the lake around 6 am Thursday 
before it quickly moves east. This will result in Stout northwest 
winds and cold advection across the lake with what looks like 
definite gales for at least the open water...including 40 kts 
with 45 kts even possible especially in the north. This likely 
will bring some freezing spray Thursday night to the open 
water. At this time forecast ingredients are a little shy for 
heavy freezing spray so no watch for that issued but will need to 
be monitored. 


Have opted to go with a gale watch for behind the low pressure as 
that time period will be the highest winds with the system. Will 
just mention occasional gales on the front side during this 
evening across mainly the south half. Small Craft Advisory 
conditions will obviously exist a good amount of this time on the 
Illinois and Indiana near shores. With a short 4-6 hour respite 
centered on daybreak Thursday as the low passes...have opted to not 
extend the current Small Craft Advisory...but one will definitely 
be needed for Thursday afternoon and night...and for the Indiana 
shore into Friday. The gale watch does include parts of the 
Indiana nearshore that will feel the greater fetch of onshore 
winds and thus could realize gales Thursday afternoon and evening.
