AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILMINGTON OH
702 PM EST SUN NOV 23 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
A DEEPENING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL PULL A LARGE SWATH OF
SHOWERS NORTHWARD INTO THE REGION TONIGHT. A STRONG COLD FRONT
WILL SWING ACROSS THE AREA MONDAY BRINGING ADDITIONAL SHOWERS
ALONG WITH WINDY CONDITIONS. COLDER AIR WILL RUSH IN BEHIND THE
FRONT AND WILL LINGER FOR THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/...
DEEPENING LOW PRESSURE WILL TRAVEL TO THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES
TONIGHT AS DEPICTED ON MODELS FOR THE LAST SEVERAL RUNS. IN A BAND
OF STRONG ISENTROPIC LIFT EXTENDING SOUTHEAST OF THE LOW
CENTER...RAIN SHOWERS ARE DEVELOPING AND MOVING ACROSS THE ENTIRE
AREA THROUGH EARLY TONIGHT. KEPT CATEGORICAL POPS. MODEL QPF
SUPPORTED BY RADAR TRENDS SHOW ABOUT AN INCH OF RAINFALL TONIGHT.
SHOWERS WILL START TO DIMINISH LATER TONIGHT AS A DRY SLOT WORKS
IN BEHIND THE MAIN BAND OF LIFT AND MOISTURE. LOW TEMPERATURES
WILL STAY MILD IN THE LOWER 50S IN A WELL MIXED AND INSULATED
REGIME.

&&

.SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/...
COLD FRONT WILL BE SWINGING IN FROM THE WEST MONDAY MORNING. A
BAND OF SHOWERS FORMING ALONG THE FRONT IS FORECAST TO PUSH ACROSS
THE AREA WITH THE FRONT. MODELS INDICATE MARGINAL INSTABILITY
THAT MAY BE ENOUGH TO TRIGGER A FEW THUNDERSTORMS WITH THE
SHOWERS. INSTABILITY IS SHOWN TO LIFT NORTHWARD AWAY FROM THE ILN
AREA BY NOON MONDAY...GIVING A BETTER CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS IN
WESTERN LOCATIONS. DRIER AIR WILL WORK IN MONDAY AFTERNOON AS THE
FRONT TRAVELS EAST OF THE AREA.

A VERY TIGHT PRESSURE GRADIENT SURROUNDING THE FRONT WILL BRING
STRONG WINDS. GUIDANCE INDICATES GUSTS CLOSE TO 50 MPH THAT WILL
NECESSITATE A WIND ADVISORY. AS IS OFTEN THE CASE WITH SYNOPTIC
SCALE WIND EVENTS...A TIGHTER PRESSURE GRADIENT AND GREATER
PRESSURE CHANGE CLOSER TO THE LOW CENTER WILL RESULT IN HIGHER
GUSTS IN NORTHERN LOCATIONS SUCH AS DAY.

FOR MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT...SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE
ARRIVING ON A SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT SHOULD PROVIDE DRY WEATHER
     THOUGH A FEW SNOW SHOWERS MAY OCCUR OVER FAR NORTHERN LOCATIONS
MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY AFTERNOON.

TEMPERATURES WILL STAY MILD TO START MONDAY WITH HIGHS IN THE 50S.
READINGS WILL FALL IN THE AFTERNOON WITH COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE.
BELOW NORMAL HIGHS IN THE UPPER 30S ARE EXPECTED FOR TUESDAY.

&&

.LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
COLDER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES WITH MEAN TROF AND BELOW NORMAL 
HEIGHTS OVER THE NATIONS MID SECTION TO START THE LONG TERM FORECAST 
PERIOD. 

LARGE RIDGE OVER THE WEST COAST WITH MEAN TROF OVER THE NATIONS MID 
SECTION AT MID WEEK. OHIO VALLEY BETWEEN SYSTEMS WITH DEPARTING SFC 
HIGH PRESSURE TO THE EAST AND APPROACH OF NEXT CLIPPER SYSTEM. WILL 
CONTINUE DRY FCST THRU THE DAYLIGHT HOURS ON WED. BELOW NORMAL 
TEMPERATURES TO CONTINUE WITH HIGHS RANGING FROM THE MID 30S 
NORTHWEST TO THE LOWER 40S SOUTHEAST. 

FOCUS SHIFTS TO WEAKENING CLIPPER LOW DROPPING SE FROM THE UPPER MS 
VLY WED AFTN THRU THE OHIO VALLEY WED NIGHT. NUMERICAL MODELS HAVE 
BEEN FLIPPING BACK AND FORTH REGARDING HOW FAR SOUTH THIS SYSTEM 
DIGS AND TIMING. LATEST DETERMINISTIC RUNS TAKING WEAK SFC WAVE FROM 
CENTRAL IL LATE WED AFTN THRU THE TRI-STATE REGION WED NIGHT. WILL 
BRING SNOW IN WED EVENING AND CONTINUE INTO THURSDAY. SOME PCPN MIX 
WILL BE POSSIBLE ACRS THE SOUTHEAST. HIGHS ON THURSDAY TO RANGE FROM 
THE LOWER/MID 30S NW TO LOWER 40 SE. 

IN NORTHWEST FLOW AND CAA SOME LINGERING SNOW SHOWERS PSBL THURSDAY 
NIGHT. SFC HIGH PRESSURE TO QUICKLY BUILD ACRS THE REGION EARLY ON 
FRIDAY WITH A RETURN FLOW DEVELOPING BY AFTN. WAA PCPN TO DEVELOP 
DURG THE AFTN WITH THE BULK OF PCPN STAYING TO OUR NORTH. WILL KEEP
AREA DRY THRU FRIDAY NIGHT. CONTD COLD TEMPERATURES WITH HIGHS ON 
FRIDAY TO RANGING FROM THE LOWER 30S NW TO THE UPR 30S SE.

WAA PCPN LOOKS TO DEVELOP SAT AFTN BUT WITH MORE UNCERTAINTY 
CREEPING INTO THE FCST REGARDING PLACEMENT/TIMING WILL LIMIT POPS TO 
SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS. THE RAIN COULD MIX OR CHANGE TO SNOW SAT 
NIGHT. GFS SOLN APPEARS TOO QUICK WITH COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE. WILL 
TREND SOLN CLOSER TO SLOWER ECMWF WITH FRONT HOLDING OFF UNTIL EARLY 
MONDAY. IN WAA SECTOR CHANCE OF SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE SUNDAY. 
TEMPERATURES WILL MODERATE WITH HIGHS ON SUNDAY FROM UPPER 30S
NORTHWEST TO THE UPPER 40S SOUTH.

&&

.AVIATION /00Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
AN EMBEDDED UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE COMBINED WITH A VERY STRONG
MOIST LOW LEVEL JET WILL BRING WIDESPREAD SHOWERS TO THE REGION
THROUGH THE EARLY MORNING HOURS OF MONDAY. AS THE ATMOSPHERE
MOISTENS...CEILINGS WILL DROP INTO THE MVFR/IFR CATEGORY.
VISIBILITIES WITH SHOWERS WILL GENERALLY BE MVFR...BUT POCKETS OF
MODERATE TO LOCALLY HEAVY WILL TEMPORARILY DROP VALUES INTO THE
IFR CATEGORY. AS THIS DISTURBANCE PULLS OFF TO THE NORTHEAST OF
THE AREA BETWEEN 06Z AND 10Z...WE SHOULD SEE A LULL IN PCPN
ACTIVITY. 

ON MONDAY...STRONGER UPPER LEVEL ENERGY WILL MOVE EAST INTO THE
GREAT LAKES. THIS WILL RESULT IN LOW PRESSURE DEEPENING AT THE
SURFACE AS IT MOVES FROM THE MID MISSISSIPPI VALLEY TO SOUTHERN
ONTARIO. A TRAILING COLD FRONT WILL PUSH EAST THROUGH OUR REGION
BETWEEN 15Z AND 20Z. SHOWERS WILL BREAK OUT AHEAD AND ALONG THE
FRONT WHICH WILL CONTINUE MVFR CONDITIONS. MODELS SUGGEST THERE
MAY BE ENOUGH INSTABILITY ACROSS EASTERN INDIANA AND WESTERN OHIO
FOR A FEW RUMBLES OF THUNDER. ONCE THE FRONT PASSES BY...PCPN
SHOULD DIMINISH CONSIDERABLY WITH MVFR CEILINGS PREDOMINATING
THROUGH 00Z TUESDAY.

A BIG ISSUE THROUGH THE TAF PERIOD WILL BE THE WINDS AS THEY
INCREASE IN SPEED AND VEER WITH TIME. GUSTY SOUTHEAST TO SOUTH
WINDS UP TO 30 KNOTS CAN BE EXPECTED OVERNIGHT. WINDS WILL SHIFT
TO THE SOUTHWEST AFTER FRONTAL PASSAGE ON MONDAY. STRONG WINDS
ALOFT ALONG WITH CAA AND SINKING AIR WILL PRODUCE SUSTAINED WINDS
IN THE 24 TO 28 KNOT RANGE WITH WIND GUSTS IN THE 35 TO 45 KNOT
RANGE. AS THE LOW PULLS AWAY TUESDAY NIGHT...WINDS WILL SLOWLY
DECREASE IN SPEED.

OUTLOOK...MVFR CEILINGS MAY BE POSSIBLE MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY.
MVFR CONDITIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE AGAIN WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY.
