DAY 2 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK CORR 1
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1238 PM CDT SAT MAR 31 2012

VALID 011200Z - 021200Z

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS ACROSS PARTS OF THE OH
VALLEY...

CORRECTED TO REMOVE THUNDER LINE IN FLORIDA

...OH VALLEY...
NORTHWEST FLOW WILL BE IN PLACE ACROSS THE NERN STATES SUNDAY WITH A
SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVING SEWD ACROSS THE ERN GREAT LAKES DURING THE
DAY. AT THE SFC...A COLD FRONT SHOULD MOVE SWD INTO THE OH VALLEY
DURING THE AFTERNOON WITH AN AXIS OF MODERATE INSTABILITY DEVELOPING
FROM WRN KY NEWD ACROSS IND INTO WRN OH. SOME CONVECTION MAY BE
ONGOING ACROSS THE LOWER OH VALLEY SUNDAY MORNING WITH NEW
CONVECTION DEVELOPING ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE FRONT FROM CNTRL IND
SEWD ACROSS SRN OH. MODEL FORECASTS MOVE THIS CONVECTION SWD ACROSS
KY AND WV DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EVENING.

A 75 TO 85 KT MID-LEVEL JET ASSOCIATED WITH THE SHORTWAVE TROUGH
OVER ERN GREAT LAKES WILL MOVE SEWD INTO THE CNTRL APPALACHIAN MTNS
SUNDAY WITH THE SERN EDGE OF THE JET AFFECTING THE OH VALLEY. THIS
WILL CREATE MODERATE TO STRONG DEEP LAYER SHEAR PROFILES ACROSS THE
SLIGHT RISK AREA. IN ADDITION...FORECAST SOUNDINGS BY MID-AFTERNOON
SHOW A MODERATELY UNSTABLE AIRMASS IN PLACE ACROSS SRN IND...SW OH
AND MOST OF KY WITH MUCAPE IN THE 1000 TO 1500 J/KG RANGE. THIS
COMBINED WITH STEEP MID-LEVEL LAPSE RATES MAY BE SUFFICIENT FOR
SUPERCELLS WITH LARGE HAIL IF CELLS CAN REMAIN DISCRETE. IF
SUPERCELLS CAN ORGANIZE...THEN AN ISOLATED TORNADO THREAT MAY EXIST
AS WELL. HOWEVER...THE DOMINANT CONVECTIVE MODE FOR SUNDAY REMAINS
UNCERTAIN AT THIS TIME AND FRONTAL FORCING COULD ENCOURAGE THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A LINE POSING A WIND DAMAGE THREAT.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE INDIANAPOLIS IN
345 PM EDT SAT MAR 31 2012

.UPDATE...
THE SYNOPSIS...NEAR TERM...SHORT TERM
AND LONG TERM SECTIONS HAVE BEEN UPDATED BELOW.



.NEAR TERM /TONIGHT/...
AT THE BEGINNING OF THE TONIGHT PERIOD SKIES WILL BE MOSTLY CLEAR.
EXPECT TO SEE CLOUDS INCREASE ESPECIALLY IN THE NORTH OVERNIGHT. MAY
SEE AN MCS FORM TONIGHT IN IOWA THAT COULD MAKE IT/S WAY ACROSS
ILLINOIS AND INTO THE NORTHWESTERN COUNTIES. NOT CONFIDENT THIS WILL
REACH INDIANA BEFORE 12Z...BUT THOUGHT IT WILL BE CLOSE ENOUGH TO
INCLUDE A LOW CHANCE POP AFTER 9Z IN THE NORTHWEST.
FOR TEMPERATURES
THOUGHT A CONSENSUS APPROACH WORKED WELL WITH HIGHER TEMPERATURES IN
THE WEST WITH WARM ADVECTION AND MORE CLOUDS THERE AND LESS IN THE
EAST.

&&

.SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
MODELS ARE IN DECENT AGREEMENT ON THE SHORT TERM SO WILL USE A
CONSENSUS GENERALLY...BUT THOUGHT EARLY ON THE NAM WAS A LITTLE
OVERZEALOUS IN POPS AND PRECIP ARRIVAL WITH THE SUNDAY SYSTEM SO
THERE WILL LEAN TOWARD THE GFS/ECMWF/SREFS. COULD HAVE AN MCS
ARRIVING IN THE NORTHWEST TO START OUT SUNDAY. VERY WEAK UPPER
FORCING WITH A LITTLE SHORTWAVE MOVING THROUGH BUT ISENTROPIC LIFT
SHOULD BE GOING THROUGH THE DAY ON SUNDAY. INSTABILITY WILL INCREASE
THROUGH THE DAY SO THAT MIXED LAYER CAPES OF 1000 TO 1500 OR SO WILL
BE IN PLACE ACROSS THE EAST BY THE AFTERNOON. MARGINAL SHEAR /BOTH
DIRECTIONAL AND SPEED/ WILL BE AVAILABLE AS WELL DURING THE
AFTERNOON...AND THUS THE INCLUSION OF A SLIGHT RISK FOR SEVERE
WEATHER ACROSS MUCH OF THE EASTERN COUNTIES FOR THAT TIME. ALSO HAVE
MID LEVEL LAPSE RATES AROUND 7-8C SO EXPECT THE MAIN THREAT TO BE
LARGE HAIL.

.SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/...
A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE SOUTH AND INFLUENCE THE FA SUNDAY INTO
SUNDAY EVENING. MODELS HAVE COME INTO MORE AGREEMENT FOR SUNDAY
WITH BRINGING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS INTO THE AREA AND
THEREFORE INCREASED PRECIPITATION CHANCES INTO THE LIKELY
CATEGORY. SOME OF THE STORMS MAY BE SEVERE DURING THE AFTERNOON
AND INTO THE EARLY EVENING HOURS WITH THE MAIN THREATS BEING WIND
AND HAIL. AN ISOLATED TORNADO WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE HOWEVER.
THE
COLD FRONT WILL PUSH SOUTH SUNDAY NIGHT AND PRECIPITATION WILL
COME TO AN END.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRIEFLY BUILD INTO THE FA FOR MONDAY HOWEVER
ANOTHER DISTURBANCE WILL BEGIN TO APPROACH THE AREA MONDAY NIGHT.
MODELS ARE NOT IN AGREEMENT ON THIS FEATURE WITH THE GFS BRINGING
WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION INTO THE AREA MONDAY NIGHT HOWEVER THE
ECMWF KEEPS THE FA DRY. WENT CLOSER TO THE ECMWF SOLUTION AND
LIMITED PRECIPITATION CHANCES TO THE SLIGHT CHANCE AND CHANCE

I'm not falling for it, but a bit of a surprise to see a slight risk go up across IA/IL for hail. I'm sure I'll sleep right though it

THE NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER HAS ISSUED A
SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH FOR PORTIONS OF

EAST CENTRAL IOWA
NORTHWEST ILLINOIS

EFFECTIVE THIS SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING FROM 925 PM
UNTIL 400 AM CDT.

HAIL TO 1.5 INCHES IN DIAMETER...THUNDERSTORM WIND GUSTS TO 70
MPH...AND DANGEROUS LIGHTNING ARE POSSIBLE IN THESE AREAS.

THE SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH AREA IS APPROXIMATELY ALONG AND 55
STATUTE MILES NORTH AND SOUTH OF A LINE FROM 5 MILES SOUTHWEST OF
CEDAR RAPIDS IOWA TO 5 MILES EAST NORTHEAST OF MARSEILLES
ILLINOIS. FOR A COMPLETE DEPICTION OF THE WATCH SEE THE
ASSOCIATED WATCH OUTLINE UPDATE (WOUS64 KWNS WOU4).

REMEMBER...A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH MEANS CONDITIONS ARE
FAVORABLE FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS IN AND CLOSE TO THE WATCH
AREA. PERSONS IN THESE AREAS SHOULD BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR
THREATENING WEATHER CONDITIONS AND LISTEN FOR LATER STATEMENTS
AND POSSIBLE WARNINGS. SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CAN AND OCCASIONALLY
DO PRODUCE TORNADOES.

OTHER WATCH INFORMATION...CONTINUE...WW 123...

1256 AM CDT SUN APR 01 2012

VALID 011200Z - 021200Z

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS FOR PARTS OF THE OH VALLEY
TODAY THROUGH THIS EVENING...

...SYNOPSIS...
AN AMPLIFIED UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH WILL SHIFT EWD ACROSS THE WRN CONUS
AND REACH THE ROCKIES BY EARLY MON. A STOUT UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE WILL
EMANATE NWD FROM AN ANTICYCLONE SHIFTING EWD ACROSS THE SRN HIGH
PLAINS TO THE OZARK PLATEAU. A SHORT WAVE TROUGH OVER ONTARIO WILL
AMPLIFY ACROSS THE NORTHEAST. THIS SHOULD INDUCE WEAK CYCLOGENESIS
OVER THE MID-ATLANTIC WITH A W/E-ORIENTED COLD FRONT SINKING SWD
ACROSS THE UPPER OH VALLEY AND MIDWEST THIS EVENING.

...OH VALLEY...
A CLUSTER OF ELEVATED TSTMS WITH A RISK OF ISOLATED SEVERE HAIL
SHOULD BE ONGOING AT 12Z THIS MORNING IN PORTIONS OF IND/ERN IL AS
ISENTROPIC LIFT PERSISTS NE OF AN ADVANCING WARM FRONT ACROSS THE
MID-MS TO TN VALLEYS. GUIDANCE DOES DIFFER TO SOME EXTENT WITH THE
HANDLING OF THIS CONVECTION LATER THIS MORNING...BUT CONSENSUS
SUGGESTS IT SHOULD CONTINUE TO TRACK E/SEWD TOWARDS PARTS OF THE OH
VALLEY. WHEN/WHERE THIS ACTIVITY BECOMES SURFACE-BASED AS DIURNAL
HEATING ENSUES IS UNCERTAIN. THE NAM AND ETA-KF CONTROL MEMBER OF
THE SREF APPEAR TOO AGGRESSIVE WITH LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE RETURN INTO
THE CNTRL OH VALLEY DEPICTING MEAN MIXING RATIOS OF 12-13 G/KG BY
LATE AFTERNOON /INDICATIVE OF THE AIR MASS OVER TEXARKANA ON SAT
EVENING/. WITH UPPER 50S TO LOWER 60S SURFACE DEW POINTS APPEARING
MORE PROBABLE...AT LEAST ISOLATED SURFACE-BASED TSTMS SHOULD FORM
DURING THE AFTERNOON...EITHER IN PRE-FRONTAL CONFLUENCE BANDS ALONG
THE S/WRN FLANK OF THE REMNANT OVERNIGHT MCS OR ALONG THE BACKDOOR
COLD FRONT SAGGING SWD INTO THE MIDWEST.

DESPITE WLY LOW-LEVEL FLOW...THE KINEMATIC PROFILE WILL STRENGTHEN
DURING THE AFTERNOON AS THE SHORT WAVE TROUGH AMPLIFIES OVER THE
NORTHEAST. HOWEVER...GUIDANCE DIFFERS ON THE DEGREE OF STRENGTHENING
OVERLAPPING LARGER INSTABILITY...WITH THE NAM MORE AGGRESSIVE
COMPARED TO THE GFS AND 12Z ECMWF. THIS BREEDS FURTHER
UNCERTAINTY...BUT HODOGRAPHS SHOULD STILL BE SUFFICIENTLY ELONGATED
FOR SUPERCELL STRUCTURES PRODUCING MAINLY LARGE HAIL /POSSIBLY
SIGNIFICANT/ AND DAMAGING WIND. WILL DEFER ON INTRODUCING HIGHER
PROBABILITIES GIVEN THE RELATIVELY LOW CONFIDENCE IN HOW BOTH
ONGOING CONVECTION AND THE ENVIRONMENT WILL EVOLVE TODAY.

DAY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK

0259 PM CDT SUN APR 01 2012

VALID 012000Z - 021200Z

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS ACROSS PARTS OF THE OH VALLEY
AND CNTRL APPALACHIAN MTNS...

THE MAIN CHANGE TO THE OUTLOOK IS TO NARROW THE HIGHER END
PROBABILITIES TO A CORRIDOR FROM SE IND SEWD ACROSS NRN KY. MODERATE
INSTABILITY SHOULD DEVELOP ACROSS THE AREA AS MOISTURE CONTINUES TO
ADVECT EWD THIS AFTERNOON. SHORT-TERM MODEL FORECASTS ARE IN GENERAL
AGREEMENT THAT THE GREATEST CONVECTIVE THREAT EARLY THIS EVENING
WILL EXIST SEWD ACROSS THE CINCINNATI AREA WHERE THE COMBINATION OF
DEEP LAYER SHEAR AND INSTABILITY MAY SUPPORT A THREAT FOR SUPERCELLS
WITH VERY LARGE HAIL. OTHERWISE...THE OUTLOOK LOOKS TO BE ON TRACK.

..BROYLES.. 04/01/2012

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 1118 AM CDT SUN APR 01 2012/

...SYNOPSIS...

LARGE-SCALE PATTERN WILL UNDERGO FURTHER AMPLIFICATION DURING THE D1
PERIOD AS WRN U.S. TROUGH PROGRESSES INTO THE ROCKIES...AND A
DOWNSTREAM RIDGE BUILDS FROM THE CANADIAN PRAIRIE PROVINCES THROUGH
THE MS RIVER VALLEY. E OF THE RIDGE...AN 80-90 KT MIDLEVEL JET
STREAK OVER SRN ONTARIO WILL DIG SEWD TOWARD THE MID-ATLANTIC
COAST...SUPPORTING INTENSIFICATION OF A TROUGH FROM THE CANADIAN
MARITIMES INTO NWRN ATLANTIC.

IN THE LOW LEVELS...A COLD FRONT ADVANCING SWD FROM THE GREAT LAKES
WILL MERGE WITH A WARM FRONT LIFTING NWD/NEWD THROUGH THE OH
VALLEY...ENHANCING BAROCLINITY OVER THESE AREAS. ELSEWHERE...A COLD
FRONT WILL MOVE FROM THE NRN ROCKIES EWD/SEWD THROUGH NRN
PLAINS...WHERE IT WILL INTERSECT A DRYLINE OR PRE-FRONTAL TROUGH
EXTENDING FROM CNTRL PARTS OF NEB/KS INTO SWRN TX.

...OH VALLEY INTO CNTRL APPALACHIANS THIS AFTERNOON/TONIGHT...

MASS RESPONSE TO ABOVE-MENTIONED JET STREAK --MANIFEST AS A WLY 30
KT LLJ-- WILL ENHANCE THE EWD FLUX OF A WARM AND MOIST BOUNDARY
LAYER CURRENTLY OBSERVED NEAR THE CONFLUENCE OF THE MS AND OH RIVERS
EWD ACROSS REGION TODAY. THIS PROCESS WILL OCCUR BENEATH THE ERN
EXTENSION OF AN EML /CHARACTERIZED BY MIDLEVEL LAPSE RATES OF
7.0-7.5 C PER KM/...YIELDING AFTERNOON MLCAPE VALUES OF 1000-2500
J/KG ACROSS EWD-DEVELOPING WARM SECTOR.

REGENERATIVE TSTM DEVELOPMENT IS ANTICIPATED THIS AFTERNOON OVER
PARTS OF IND/OH OWING TO PERSISTENT LOW-LEVEL WAA AND GLANCING
INFLUENCE OF IMPULSE DIGGING SEWD THROUGH THE LOWER GREAT LAKES.
STORMS MAY SUBSEQUENTLY BUILD WWD INTO A PROGRESSIVELY MORE
UNSTABLE...BUT STRONGER CAPPED ENVIRONMENT. FORECAST HODOGRAPHS
EXHIBIT PRONOUNCED VEERING OF WINDS WITH HEIGHT WITH 40-50 KT OF
EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR. AS SUCH...THE POTENTIAL FOR SUPERCELLS WILL
EXIST WITH AN ATTENDANT RISK FOR VERY LARGE HAIL...DAMAGING WINDS
AND PERHAPS A COUPLE OF TORNADOES.

STORMS WILL LIKELY CONGEAL INTO A FORWARD-PROPAGATING MCS LATER THIS
EVENING INTO TONIGHT WITH A THREAT FOR DAMAGING WINDS AND LARGE HAIL
CONTINUING ACROSS PARTS OF THE CNTRL APPALACHIANS.

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0407
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0342 PM CDT SUN APR 01 2012

AREAS AFFECTED...ECNTRL IL...CNTRL IND...WCNTRL OH

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH POSSIBLE

VALID 012042Z - 012215Z

LATEST VIS IMAGERY SUGGESTS DEEPER CONVECTIVE UPDRAFTS ARE
DEVELOPING ACROSS ECNTRL IL INVOF IROQUOIS/VERMILION COUNTIES. THIS
IS LIKELY INDICATIVE OF STRONG THERMAL HEATING AT LOW LEVELS AND
STEEP LAPSE RATES. HOWEVER...FRONTAL CONVERGENCE SHOULD GRADUAL SAG
SWD INTO THIS ZONE OF STEEPER LOW LEVEL LAPSE RATES WHICH SHOULD
ENCOURAGE THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS. THIS
SCENARIO IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY LIKELY...THOUGH DEEP WLY FLOW MAY
DELAY THE ONSET OF THUNDERSTORMS UNTIL 22-23Z TIME FRAME. DEEP
LAYER SHEAR IS CERTAINLY SUPPORTIVE OF ORGANIZED UPDRAFTS THAT WOULD
MOVE SEWD AT ROUGHLY 25-30KT. LATEST THINKING IS AN E-W CORRIDOR OF
CONVECTION COULD EVOLVE ALONG THE FRONT INTO THE EARLY EVENING HOURS
WHICH WOULD POSE AT LEAST A THREAT FOR LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING
WINDS. WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR FOR POSSIBLE SEVERE THUNDERSTORM
WATCH.
