627 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 .UPDATE... Issued at 625 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 Isolated to scattered showers continue across the region this evening. No major changes are planned to the forecast though may need to tweak hourly pops as the evening progresses. && .SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Friday Afternoon) Issued at 326 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 Chances for precipitation continue this evening with the possibility of some fog overnight across parts of our CWA. Dry air moves in Friday with more chances of precip for the weekend. Deterministic models at 500mb indicates a troughing pattern to our east with the low that continues to spin over Ontario. To our west way out in the Pacific, off the coast of Alaska, is another low that continues to spin. With this setup, an upper level ridge is positioned over much of the western half of the country, with most of the CWA on the top/right side of it, which is bringing us northwest flow aloft. This pattern continues pretty much through the short term before the ridge moves east, changing our flow out of the south/southwest, towards the end of the weekend. This flow will continue to pump out shortwave activity on the downside of the ridge that will help aid in chances of precip. At the surface, a low pressure system will be positioned over CO/NE border around 00Z and push east through the overnight hours into Friday. A high pressure system will move in over the area for Friday, keeping most of the area dry. This high pushes southeast through the day with a surface low pushing in from the northwest with the warm front to our north and cold front to our northwest. With this low to our south, surface trough to the west/southwest, and shortwave energy there will be continuing chances of spotty showers/t-storms into this evening. Cams indicates stronger convection activity will remain to our south where much of the severe weather will take place. However, there is a marginal risk for some of those storms to become severe (isolated), mainly from Sturgis to Faith, southeast through Pierre, and into southern SD. DP temps in the 50s along with ML/MU CAPE ~1200-1400 J/Kg by 00Z Friday with bulk shear 40-50 Kts out of the northwest, according to the HRRR/HREF. Of note, NAM models seems to be the most progressive with the instability pushing more northward. Otherwise HREF/Rap indicates just a little bit of CAPE to work with this evening/early overnight for thunder chances to remain in the forecast. With the high overhead for Friday, dry weather in store before chances of precip once again with the approaching warm front late Friday into Saturday, mainly across our northeastern CWA. RAP Bufkit soundings indicate moist air at the surface, along with light winds overnight. This suggests there could be patchy fog across parts of our CWA, mainly in the early morning hours Friday. Overnight lows will range in the 50s. Highs for Friday will warm up as much warmer air moves in from the south/southwest at 925-850mb. Highs will be in the mid/upper 70s to lower 80s with even warmer temps this weekend. .LONG TERM...(Friday Evening through Thursday) Issued at 326 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 A more seasonal, summer-like pattern will be in place this weekend into early next week, both in terms of temperature and storm potential. This weekend, the CWA will be sandwiched in the upper-levels between a high centered across New Mexico/Texas and a low near/north of the Great Lakes. The jet stream will be squarely atop the Northern Plains, and thus any passing ridge-riding shortwave energy will have the opportunity to support showers and thunderstorms across the region, in an increasingly warm and humid environment. Temperatures aloft will be much warmer than we`ve been accustomed to seeing so far this season, in the ~20-30C range at 925mb. This will translate into highs in the low to upper 80s for highs. Meanwhile, dewpoints will increase to around 60F east of the Missouri River Saturday, and into the low to mid 60s across the board on Sunday. The best chance for showers and storms will be Saturday night across central SD (20- 30%) and again Sunday night (30-50%). The heat and humidity increases further on Monday, as the upper- levels become more amplified due to an approaching negatively-tilted trough, which eventually becomes a strong closed low by Tuesday morning across southern Saskatchewan. With dewpoints in the low 60s to perhaps low 70s across the CWA, ample instability is forecast (SBCAPE of 3000+ J/kg). However, thunderstorms may have a difficult time developing as a strong capping inversion should be in place by 18z with very anomalously warm 13-17C 700mb temperatures, per the ECMWF and NAEFS means on the ensemble situational awareness table. This will be something to monitor in the days ahead, as other ingredients needed for severe weather will be in place, though the best deep-layer shear may be a bit off-set to the north and west as well. High temperatures could easily reach the mid 80s to mid 90s Monday afternoon, and heat index values may approach 100F, particularly between the Missouri River and the Prairie Coteau. Once a cold front passes through/to the east of the area by Tuesday morning, temperatures cool off and any severe weather potential would most likely shift east as well. Summer-like conditions may quickly rebound by the end of the week, however. && .AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday Evening) Issued at 625 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 Terminals KABR,KATY,KPIR,KMBG VFR conditions are expected through this evening.

427 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 ...Updated Aviation... .SHORT TERM...(This evening through Friday) Issued at 1254 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 Ongoing thunderstorms at of 18z continue to develop and move into central Kansas east of the Larned to Medicine Lodge line. As these storms move east this Thursday afternoon they will pose little risk for any type of severe weather in the Stafford, Pratt and Medicine Lodge areas. The main area of interest of late day/evening for strong to severe thunderstorms will be across southeast Colorado near a surface boundary which based on SPC Meso Analysis and RAP 0-1km moist Convergence has it located from extreme southeast Colorado to west central and northwest Kansas. MLCAPE at 18z was 1500 to 2000j/kg with decent CIN in place but given this area has already broke out into the sun will be monitoring the erosion of this cap and possible thunderstorm development after 3pm. Any storm that does develop late today will have a good chance to become strong or severe given an approaching upper level trough, forecast shear and mid level instability late day in this area. The strongest storms being capable of producing hail larger than 2" possible. Also strong gusty winds will be possible given the high bases and downdraft capes. These storms will move east southeast late day and cross southwest Kansas with the best chance for severe being west of a Garden City to Meade line and between 21z and 03z. Locally heavy rainfall will also be possible and given the recent rainfall this may result in some water issues. At this time am leaning towards holding off with any type of Flood Warning but this heavy rainfall may result in some localized ponding of water. After 03z there will be a chance for strong to severe thunderstorms across north central Kansas as an upper level trough exits Nebraska and crosses north central/central Kansas between 03z an 09z Friday. This upper wave should move along a mid level baroclinic zone which based on the 700mb temperature gradient from the RAP will be located near/north of Wakeeney to near/east of Pratt. Also overnight the RAP 850mb winds increase to 35 to 40 knots across southwest Kansas as warm air advection, moisture advection and 0-1km moisture convergence improving near the edge of the warm mid level temperatures. Given this...what storms that have developed earlier in the evening ahead of the approaching upper wave should continue to increase in coverage and strengthen as they move south southeast. As this cluster of storms develops the primary hazard will shift from large hail to strong damaging winds along with periods of heavy rainfall. Given that this area has had a brief break in the convection over the past few days and taking into account what little isolated convection that did occur earlier this morning...will lean towards holding off on issuing a flood watch at this time for Trego, Ellis or Rush counties but the expected heavy rain potential may result in minor water issues, especially in poor drainage areas along with ponding of water in fields. Wind gusts in excess of 70 mph will also be possible. Much like the previous events the overnight thunderstorms will end by early morning and what cloud cover there will be present will give way to a mostly sunny afternoon. What cooler air that did invade southwest Kansas overnight will be slow to erode from west to east but it does look like a warmer afternoon temperatures will be possible west of Dodge City. Highs near 90 are not out of the question in a few locations in extreme southwest Kansas (Elkhart) while east of Dodge City the highs are expected to be mainly in the low to mid 80s. .LONG TERM...(Friday night through Thursday) Issued at 1254 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 The latest Models today, ensemble clusters and ECMWF EFI were all in good agreement with summer heat returning to southwest Kansas over the weekend and into early next week. See little reason to disagree with the latest forecast with highs Sunday and Monday ranging from 100 to near 105. Subtle upper level disturbances are forecast to rotate out of the Rockies and out into the Western High Plains late week and early next week as the upper ridge moves east across the Central and Northern Plains. Any one of these subtle waves may aid in the development of isolated thunderstorms over eastern Colorado along a trough of low pressure at the surface. Any storm that does develop will move east and weaken during the evening so the probability of thunderstorms across far southwest Kansas appears small. Precipitation chances may be small but the strong gusty winds are appearing to be more and more likely given the trough of low pressure along the lee of the Rockies in response to an approaching upper level trough and stronger winds (40-50knot 850mb winds forecast, especially Monday) mixing down to the surface. Towards mid week the precipitation chances will be on the increase as an upper level trough that will be crossing the Western United States on Monday moves east towards the Rockies on Tuesday. Cooling in the mid levels are expected as the warm mid level temperatures shift east as the upper ridge axis enters the Mississippi Valley. Given the location of the lee surface trough and approaching cold front from the north along with cooling mid level temperatures ahead of the approaching upper level trough it currently appears that thunderstorms chances will be on the increase late Tuesday through Wednesday, especially north of Dodge City. Cold frontal passage mid week will usher in some cooler, or should we say more seasonal, temperatures back to southwest Kansas for the end of next week. && .AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday evening) Issued at 427 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 VFR is expected to prevail through this TAF cycle. Widespread stratocumulus, mainly in the VFR to high end MVFR category, has persisted most of the day, but is expected to slowly dissolve through this evening. Convective coverage through tonight is highly uncertain. As such, kept all TAFs dry with no convection mentioned for now. Will monitor for convective impacts at the airports through tonight, but confidence is way too low to include in the 00z TAFs. Sky is expected to clear through 12z Fri as subsidence arrives behind the departing shortwave. Associated weak cold front is expected to provide a northerly wind shift 12-15z Fri, with north winds gusting 20-25 kts. VFR/SKC is expected daylight Friday with a diminishing NE wind. && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...

1049 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 Updated aviation portion for 06Z TAF issuance .SHORT TERM...Tonight and Friday Issued at 512 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will end along the bay and lake breezes in far Northeast Wisconsin by early evening, with clearing skies overnight. Low temperatures will be around 5 degrees cooler than usual. An upper trough moving across southern Wisconsin and a weak surface boundary across eastern Wisconsin should produce scattered showers and thunderstorms Friday, mainly south of highway 29. The RAP and HRRR forecast soundings have CAPEs of over 1000 J/kg at MTW/OSH/GRB with steep mid level lapse rates and low wet bulb zero heights. Think there could be a few strong or nearly severe storms providing that the models are correct. Highs will be close to usual. .LONG TERM...Friday Night Through Thursday Issued at 512 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 The main highlights from this forecast period revolve around precipitation trends throughout the period. In addition, near normal temperatures are expected for the weekend, followed by a pattern change early next week, bringing above normal temperatures to the region. Friday night through Sunday...Lingering showers and thunderstorms will continue into Friday evening, mainly south of Highway 29, as a mid-level shortwave exits the region to the southeast. Not following far behind, a stronger mid-level shortwave will slide southeast across the Upper Mississippi Valley early Saturday morning. While this system is expected to bring a decent soaking to the forecast area Saturday into Saturday night (QPF amounts up to 0.50 to 0.75 inches), uncertainty remains with the location of the axis of heaviest precipitation due to differences in the surface low track. The better instability and forcing will remain closer to the surface low, which appears to remain west of the forecast area for most of Saturday. By the time the low tracks across the forecast area sometime Saturday night, diurnal heating and instability will decrease, leaving the potential for non-severe thunderstorms Saturday night. Model guidance indicates weak high pressure building across the region for Sunday, which should keep a dry forecast in place, however, some guidance indicates lingering low-level moisture may allow for light showers or sprinkles at times. Rest of the extended...Into Monday, upper-level ridging will amplify over the region as WAA and isentropic upglide slowly lifts over the state. By Monday evening, models show some indication of an embedded mid-level shortwave riding the ridge, which would provide enough support for a chance of showers and thunderstorms across the forecast area. However, there are also indications of a cap, which would hinder the severe potential. The combination of low-level southwest to west winds transporting much warmer air into the region Monday night into Tuesday, and the surface warm front lifting across the region by Tuesday afternoon, will allow afternoon high temperatures to rise above normal with readings in the 80s away from the lake, and 70s along the lake. With the surface cold front still trailing well behind, Tuesday should remain dry, but it will be humid with afternoon dew points in the middle to upper 60s. The biggest question remains with the timing of the surface cold front on Wednesday. Although this is at the end of this forecast period, which can very easily change over the coming days, models indicate the cold front moving across the region during peak heating, when instability, mid-level lapse rates, and shear appear to be at their greatest, increasing the potential for severe storms over the forecast area. Will continue to watch how this system evolves over the coming days. && .AVIATION...for 06Z TAF Issuance Issued at 1049 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 VFR conditions are expected across the area during the overnight hours as some high clouds stream in across the region. An upper level disturbance could produce scattered thunderstorms south of a AUW to GRB line Friday afternoon. Given the spotty nature of the convection will not include in this set of TAFs.

National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC
726 PM EDT Thu Jun 9 2022 .SYNOPSIS... High pressure will briefly be in control of our weather tonight and Friday. A low pressure system is forecast to approach from the west late Friday into Saturday providing the opportunity for scattered showers and storms to the area. Quiet weather is expected from Sunday through much of the upcoming week with a heat wave into the middle of the week. && .NEAR TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY/... As of 600 PM: Forecast is generally on track. Only made cosmetic edits this update cycle. The surface front has shifted east of the forecast area based on wind field and latest mesoanalysis. Remaining showers have moved east with the frontal forcing, except perhaps for a few sprinkles lingering along the far southeastern tier including Laurens, Union, and Chester Counties, SC. Otherwise, dry air is settling into the region and will continue to do so the remainder of the evening. Can`t rule out a couple modest wind gusts embedded in the NW flow, but RAP profiles depict increasingly unfavorable profiles for mixing over the next few hours, and CAMs in general agree that CAA will not be especially impressive to begin with, so not expected widespread gusting. Tonight winds will gradually decrease, remaining light and north-northwesterly. Skies will be clear to mostly clear, allowing for another round of mountain valley fog overnight into daybreak Friday. Lows should be a few degrees below climo tonight dropping into the upper 40s to mid 50s across the mtns and upper 50s to lower 60s elsewhere. Friday will be noticeably cooler east of the mtns with highs across the mtns similar to what we will see today. High temps should range from the low to mid 80s east of the mtns with low 70s to low 80s across the mtns. Winds start out NE`ly becoming light and variable Friday afternoon and evening. Sfc high pressure remains overhead throughout much of the day leading to dry conditions. At the end of the fcst period a potent shortwave will track into the western CWA increasing rain chances across the western NC mtns Friday evening. However, capped PoPs to slight chance through 23z Friday as the majority of CAM guidance show precip holding off until Friday night. Please see the short term discussion below for more details. && .SHORT TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/... As of 230 pm EDT Thursday: A period of peak forcing still looks slated for Friday night, with upper-level jetlet divergence crossing the region circa 06Z Saturday along with the main DPVA lobe in the passing upper trough. Only modest instability appears to redevelop under the passing wave Friday night, but perhaps enough for an isolated thunder mention to go with solid chance shower PoPs. A little pocket of 30 kt bulk shear will lift through with the wave, so any thunderstorms will need to be watched for modest organization, but the weak instability should win out. PoPs will steadily ebb from the west with the passing wave through Saturday, but isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be possible with daytime heating. Deep-layer northwest flow will set up behind the departing wave on Sunday along with drying profiles. Temperatures will begin the climb back above climo through the latter half of the weekend. && .LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/... As of 240 pm EDT Thursday: Heights will build eastward from the lower/middle Mississippi River Valley Monday to begin ushering in a week of oppressive heat. 500 mb 594+ dm heights will be in place Tuesday and Wednesday across the southern Appalachians. The model camps are split on any modest ridge breakdown on Thursday, with the ECMWF allowing shortwave energy to batter down the ridge somewhat, while the GFS and most ensemble means keep ridging in place. Will lean toward the warmer envelope of guidance each day under the stout ridge. Tuesday/Wednesday may be the hottest days, with afternoon heat index values 100 to 105 in many places east of the mountains. Any diurnal convection under the ridge each day should be rather limited early in the week, but expand a bit Wednesday into Thursday. Will feature isolated high mountain PoPs Monday/Tuesday, with more solid chances Wednesday/Thursday. 850 to 500 mb lapse rates should be sufficiently robust to support the diurnal convection despite the warm ridge in place. && .AVIATION /00Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/... At KCLT and elsewhere: Generally a quiet TAF period is in store for the western Carolinas. With dry high pressure sprawling across the region, NWly winds and only FEW/SCT cirrus remain. Dry conditions should continue through the overnight hours while winds become increasingly Nly before dawn. May see some mountain valley fog develop overnight, but a persistent light wind should be enough to prevent it from becoming very thick; at this point it is expected to remain confined to the Little Tennessee River Valley, not affecting any of the TAF sites. Conditions should remain clear on Friday with prevailing Nly flow. Convection is not expected, although some FEW/SCT fair-weather cumulus will likely develop across the Piedmont. Friday evening, general thickening of clouds is expected as an upper disturbance approaches; at this point any restrictions associated with this disturbance look to occur after the end of the TAF period. Have included a VCSH at KAVL, but even this may need to be bumped back with the next issuance. Outlook: Rain chances return overnight into Saturday as a weak upper wave crosses the Carolinas, after which isolated diurnal convection will be possible on Saturday. Dry weather should persist through the first part of next week. Mountain valley fog will be possible each morning, but should be patchy at best. && .CLIMATE...

National Weather Service Gray ME
1020 PM EDT Thu Jun 9 2022 .SYNOPSIS... Low pressure exits northeast this evening with much anticipated clearing over southern portions of the area. Light showers will persist toward the north through tonight and tomorrow, but much more pleasant conditions are expected overall with a warm, westerly breeze on Friday. Weak high pressure fills in through the weekend, but unsettled weather returns by around Sunday and lasts through the start of the next work week. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/... Update... Have updated the near term portion of the forecast for the overnight period. Most of the precipitation has shifted east of the region with drier air entering the region. This is in line with the latest HRRR which keeps most of the scattered, light showers confined to the mountains at this point. Plenty of low level moisture remains in place from today`s rains however. This may allow for some patchy fog during the overnight hours as the gradient eases for a period. Have made small edits to the expected overnight cloud cover, temperatures and dew points as well. Prev Disc... The low pressure system currently located overhead will continue to move northeast overnight, clearing showers out as it moves offshore. A few storms which developed in southern NH are currently moving offshore to the coast which will likely end the thunderstorm potential for the day. Lingering showers will be possible overnight in the mountains as westerly flow sets in. Skies start clearing out tonight except for northern and mountain areas with temperatures dropping into the low 50s. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/... High Impact Weather Potential: Minimal. Pattern: Longwave trough over eastern North America through the short term period with one wave departing the region on Friday only to have another dig into the trough from the west by Friday night. No significant synoptic systems through the period so our focus will be more on the mesoscale...where mountain shower potential is the biggest forecast challenge. Friday: Weak embedded shortwave will be overhead to start the day with weak mid level height falls. This will pass east of the region with heights building by afternoon. Given that height rises don`t arrive until afternoon...building boundary layer in stability with residual cyclonic flow will likely allow for some shower development...particularly in the mountains. Current model profiles suggest too little instability for thunder...but can/t completely rule it out in a few of the more robust showers. Expect this activity to wane with the loss of upper support by middle to late afternoon. T8s 7-10C suggest mid to perhaps upper 70s with some downslope assistance. Friday Night: Weak surface ridging builds overhead as mid level heights continue to build ahead of upstream troughing both north of the Great Lakes and also across the Mid Atlantic region. A few upslope showers remain possible through the night...but otherwise partly cloudy skies should dominate though some increase in upper cloudiness ahead of the Mid Atlantic shortwave may keep it a bit more on the cloudy side. Expect lows similar to the night previous...generally in the lower 50s. && .LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/... A blocky northern hemispheric wave pattern keeps the region locked in cyclonic flow into the start of next week, but with recent model trends leaning a bit more toward surface high pressure over the weekend. Though still a bit nebulous of a surface reflection at times... confidence is increasing WRT the low level flow pattern and where weak forcing for light showers come (or don`t come) together. A more organized area of low pressure impacts the region early next week, but there`s still quite a bit of model spread WRT where it tracks and thus extent of any potential hazards. Starting on Saturday... today`s low pressure system will have tracked well north of the area with weak high pressure building in its place across New England. Favorable mixing and an upper level trough axis should still lead to some diurnal showers mostly over the mountains, although I wouldn`t be surprised if a few stray showers occurred elsewhere. Temperatures will run similar on Saturday as they should on Friday, a little warmer toward the north where better mixing can be realized with less cloud cover. On the flip side diminishing westerly flow doesn`t downslope as efficiently while also allowing a seabreeze to develop, so some locations (particularly over the coast/adjacent interior) may be a touch cooler than Friday. Sunday looks like a similar set up as Saturday, however this is about the time that model guidance starts to diverge significantly WRT the synoptic set up. Looking into the upper levels, a long wave trough will be amplifying over eastern NOAM, caught between fast zonal flow upstream and blocking high pressure down stream. Long range model suites point to two preferred areas of low pressure development on Sunday... one off the Mid-Atlantic coast and another over the Great Lakes region... which should come into phase by around Mon/Tue. These offer a few scenarios for how the start of next week may pan out. A stronger coastal low to our south would bring in cool, onshore flow Sun/Mon, otherwise a warm southerly flow would develop over the region in the warm sector of the Great Lakes low. I`m going to trend a bit more toward the onshore flow component which will bring in cooler conditions along the coast and at least to the I95 corridor. For chances, the coastal low continues to trend further out over the waters, so not expecting rain out of that. However the warm front with the Great Lakes low will have increasing PoPs from the west starting around Sunday. As is the general idea with this entire extended forecast... the Great Lakes low pressure approaches New England early Friday according to latest trends in guidance but with continued uncertainty in its overall progression. Its degree of organization varies greatly across the statistical suite but cooler, more showery conditions are expected with this system for Monday with an exit Monday night into Tuesday nonetheless. After that, the blocking pattern will determine how quickly we can get out from under this persistent upper level trough and transition into more of a warm ridging pattern. Lingering upslope showers should wane and temperatures should trend warming through the middle of the week with high pressure moving in. && .AVIATION /03Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/... Short Term...Conditions will continue to gradually improve to VFR as showers clear and ceilings lift this evening. Westerly flow sets in tomorrow with dry conditions and clear skies until low pressure starts moving in late Friday night bringing another round of restrictions. Long Term...VFR prevails with weak westerly flow turning onshore for coastal terminals Saturday into early Sunday. For Sunday, flow turns southerly to southeasterly for all terminals with increasing chances for restrictions by Sunday night as SHRA arrive from the west. Widespread restrictions... thinking likely IFR or worse along the coast and brief IFR during periods of SHRA elsewhere... are likely on Monday as low pressure crosses. Improvements to prevailing VFR can be expected heading into mid-week. && .MARINE... Short Term... The SCA has been extended until Friday evening with waves staying above 5ft, however winds are expected to calm down tonight to 10-20 kts as the low continues to move out the of waters. Winds will stay primarily from the west to northwest behind the low. Long Term...Weak high pressure draped over the region keeps conditions over the waters fairly quiet and below SCA thresholds through the weekend. Forecast confidence drops significantly starting around Sunday, with low pressure crossing the waters around the Monday time frame. While the forecast doesn`t reflect it right now, there is a chance that SCA conditions develop for a time as this system passes. && .GYX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... ME...None. NH...None.

710 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 .SHORT TERM...(This evening through Sunday night) Issued at 259 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 Key Details: * A slight risk is in place for the entire CWA with significant wind possible. * A flood watch is in effect for portions of south-central and southeast Kansas. * Drier and much warmer weather is expected towards the end of the weekend and into early next week. This Evening and Tonight: Not much has changed to increase confidence on the location of storms. The mesoscale and global models still vary on where the best moisture transport will occur thus setting up the location where the MCS will likely track. The RAP, Canadian suite, and the HRW-FV3 are further west with the moisture transport, with the RAP and Canadian models favoring south-central and southern Kansas down into Oklahoma. The HRW-FV3 progresses the MCS further east, but the moisture transport would probably favor something closer to the I- 135 corridor. The GFS, HRRR, and NAM are all further east with the moisture transport and progress the MCS more towards far southeast Kansas and into Missouri. The WRF ARW and NSSL are somewhere in between. As of now the RAP seems to have a better evolution of the current precip trends over central Kansas, but would still like to see continued consistency from it before leaning towards that solution. Nonetheless the potential will be there for a significant wind event. Models are in pretty good agreement for 50 to 70 knots of deep layer effective shear, greater than 2000 j/kg of most unstable CAPE, and 700-500mb lapse rates will be greater than 8 degrees C/km. The main hazards will be hail up to ping pong sized, damaging winds possibly greater than 70 mph, and a couple of brief tornadoes. Along with the severe threat will be a threat for flooding. Torrential rain could lead to flash flooding in some areas that have already received a lot of rain this week. precipitable Water will be well above the 90s percentile this evening so any storm will be an efficient rain maker. A flood watch has been issued for portions of south-central, central, and southeast Kansas where the highest confidence in storms appears to be. Friday through Sunday: The pattern becomes more amplified in the pacific, which will allow the ridge over the Rockies to amplify and shift eastward. This will bring hot and dry weather this weekend with highs on Sunday approaching the upper 90s. .LONG TERM...(Monday through Thursday) Issued at 259 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 The pattern continues to amplify in the Pacific as we see highs approach 100 in our western locations on Monday. A shortwave trough will begin to eject into the Central Plains on Tuesday and keep temps in the low to mid 90s. Another chance for storms is expected Tuesday evening into Wednesday with a cold front behind it that would cool us back into the mid 80s on Wednesday. Models still differ on both the timing and depth of this trough so stay tuned as we refine the forecast in the coming days. && .AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday evening) Issued at 645 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 A few elevated showers with occasional lightning continue over portions of south central and southeast KS early this evening.. Toward and after midnight, chances increase area wide for strong to severe storms. The main threats with tonights activity will be the potential for damaging wind and hail. Unfortunately there remains some uncertainty in how the complex of storms evolves in space/time thus went with just showers with a VCTS mention to minimize impacts. Expect reductions in flight categories as the storms pass through. Otherwise, expect winds to become light and variable this evening through tomorrow. Winds will be me mostly out of the northeast by the end of the TAF period.

326 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 .SHORT TERM... Several areas of focus in the short-term, beginning with what`s ongoing right outside our window this afternoon. Recent KLIX radar trends illustrate developing cellular convection draped across the northern half of the CWA. This convection resides along a subtle convergent axis which, combined with building MLCAPE and sfc temperatures surpassing convective T has led to this development. Going through the rest of the late afternoon and evening, pre-storm environmental conditions remain supportive for a few locally strong thunderstorms, especially given ~3500J/kg MLCAPE and the subtle dynamic forcing available. However, widespread severe weather remains low as mid-level temperatures remain unchanged within the - 7C range, reducing hail growth CAPE. Additionally, recent ACARS soundings from MSY illustrate why DCAPE remains relatively low (in the 900J/kg range) with a rather moist low-level thermal profile even following PBL mixing. Still, can`t rule out a few stronger sub- severe wind gusts to around 40mph which will be the main concern today, as well as dangerous lightning. Recent 18Z HRRR guidance does try to keep convection ongoing this evening given an abundant unstable environment coinciding with the southward sagging convergence axis. Very possible it could drape south of the I-10/12 corridor to around sunset or after, especially given these storms currently becoming cold pool dominant, now causing a southward moving outflow boundary to press out. Thereafter, activity should transition into mainly marine or nearshore areas later tonightgiven the residual convergence axis tapping into the marine nocturnal environment. Focus here going into tonight and daybreak if convection can hang around will be weak waterspouts. Going into tomorrow, confidence and focus for severe weather does increase but first, will take a step back and talk about the overall synoptic environment and its relation to recent CAM trends. As we know, we remain largely under the influence of quasi-NW flow aloft along the eastern periphery of a southern US ridge axis. But going into early tomorrow, the ridge begins to retrograde slightly into the desert Southwest, aiding in subtle height falls across our region. Meanwhile upstream over the central US, embedded mid-level impulses will lead to convective initiation this afternoon and tonight, with likely convective complex evolution into a MCS riding southeast within progressive NW flow. HRRR trends have been consistent on the idea that a long-tracked MCS will enter our CWA Friday afternoon thru the evening hours. Given noticeable H3 divergence, H7 to H5 jet influx and supportive PVA makes this a plausible solution, especially given the weakness in upper-level heights helping to pave a "corridor" or road for MCS propagation. The pre-storm environment per CAM soundings illustrates modest thermal modification, largely colder H5 temperatures in the -9 to - 11C range and steeper lapse rates approaching 6.5C/km which in turn yields larger hail growth CAPE. Will with better confidence mention the risk for severe weather appears greater, with the main risks being damaging straight line winds around or > than 60mph, large hail and can`t not mention intense rainfall rates leading to localized flooding (given 1.8-2" PW`s) but hoping this complex will remain progressive enough to alleviate widespread flooding concerns. Glancing at HREF >40dBZ paintball plots paints a telling picture, showing high confidence of an MCS but placement is not as confident, likely caused by uncertainty on location of CI upstream forecast for later today. Strongly believe once upstream convection becomes better organized then initialized into future CAM runs, we`ll see an alignment of better timing and strength. But, given confidence among short-range guidance, did decide to increase PoP`s in the FRI 18Z- SAT 03Z time frame to follow the southward position of the complex. This complex is quickly out of here Friday night, but with some lingering convection possible as subtle H5 PVA/impulses ride along the NW flow aloft. Question remains how worked over we become from the earlier complex with lingering widespread CINH/subsidence if we can overturn enough, but timing is not going to be helpful being overnight. But, if dynamics can offset and we can recover enough, upscale growth of scattered convection could be possible through the night. Impulses may continue to ride the flow during the day on Saturday, with no major adjustments for PoP`s needed given greater coverage potential for eastern areas. The thermal profile aloft is somewhat similar glancing at recent NAM runs, perhaps a slight bit warmer aloft which will lead to the possibility of a locally strong storm or two. .LONG TERM...(Sunday through Wednesday) The upper ridge axis will begin to shift eastward on Sunday, marking a transition to another less active period of weather. Whatever is left of the lingering surface boundary could serve as a focus for a few isolated to widely scattered showers Sunday afternoon, but in general, subsidence aloft associated with the upper ridge will suppress convection. Am carrying generally slight chance POPs across roughly near the I-10 and I-12 corridors. The high continues to shift eastward during the first half of the work week, and really begins to amplify and strengthen by Tuesday as an upper trough digs into the southwestern CONUS. As the high strengthens, convection will basically shut off with the exception of a few rogue showers/storms each afternoon. Any showers or storms that do manage to develop would likely do so along a sea breeze boundary where lift is enhanced, but even then, am only carrying "silent 10" POPs Monday through Wednesday. A lack of cloud cover and showers/storms will allow afternoon temperatures to rise into the mid 90s by mid week. With dewpoints forecast in the mid to even upper 70s, afternoon heat index values will easily cross the century mark, and may be flirting with heat advisory criteria by mid week. Will need to monitor trends as the time period gets closer. && .AVIATION...(Valid through 00z Saturday) Largely VFR conditions through the cycle. Some convection will fire (has started already along a front in So Miss), which may impact those terminals shortly. With the more ISO nature, kept VCs respectively for now, but a short fused TEMPO may be possible for terminals east of the Lake early this afternoon. Another round of convection will be possible late in the cycle. Again used VCs for some and PROB30 for MCB. Otherwise, winds should remain on the light and variable side outside of convection. && .MARINE... Local waters will remain on the periphery of a surface high centered over the eastern Gulf through the period. This will keep winds generally ranging between southerly and southwesterly depending on location and small daily shifts in the ridge axis. A weak boundary sinking toward the coast will support scattered showers and storms at times tonight through the weekend, but should completely dissipate by the start of the work week. Expect winds to increase a bit overnight as is typical this time of year, and have hoisted an exercise caution headline for most of the open waters tonight as winds are now forecast in the 15-20kt range. Will likely need exercise caution headlines tomorrow night again and possibly continuing through the weekend as the pressure gradient tightens slightly. && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...

1014 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 .NEAR TERM /Now Through Saturday/...The late afternoon storms moved offshore into the northern Gulf of Mexico and have since dissipated, as have the lingering showers that were also moving south across the coastal counties of AL/FL around sunset this evening. It`s likely that there will be some redevelopment of showers and storms over the coastal waters of AL/FL late tonight, but most of that redevelopment should remain offshore. Otherwise, a warm and somewhat muggy night expected, with lows falling to the upper 60s and lower 70s along and north of the Highway 84 corridor, but remaining in the low to mid 70s to the south. Along the immediate beaches and barrier islands, some areas could remain in the upper 70s. For Friday, all eyes point upstream to an MCS, which is currently developing over the TX panhandle, as it dives rapidly toward the southeast late tonight and through the day on Friday. The 10.00Z HRRR seems to have initiated quite well with this feature, and although there is still some discrepancy with regard to other Hi- Res Models, we will use the HRRR as our Hi-Res model of choice for the near term period. This feature should be rolling into southwestern AR by around daybreak Friday, and rapidly continue southeastward through the afternoon. The MCS should be reaching our northwestern zones by the mid afternoon hours. As such, thinking continues to suggest that the MCS will move into our southeast MS counties around 3 PM or so, then progress southeast across our forecast area through the early evening hours. Probably moving into our southwest AL counties by around 5 PM, then exiting our western FL panhandle counties by around 8 PM. Model trends also continue to suggest that the MCS will begin to weaken and become somewhat more disorganized as it pushes through our region, thanks to the upper shortwave beginning to shear out and lift to the northeast. Therefore we expect the strongest and most likely severe storms to be over the western half of our forecast area, and SPC has outlooked that area and our FL panhandle counties with a SLIGHT Risk of severe weather on Friday, with a MARGINAL Risk over interior south central AL. Even with the best forcing lifting away from the MCS late in the afternoon, high instability out ahead (MLCAPEs reaching 2000-3000 J/kg, possibly even higher, in some locations over the southern third of our forecast area) and strong 700mb flow punching in from behind, should allow the MCS to continue down to the coast, being maintained by outflow. The primary threats associated with the MCS will be damaging wind (maybe even some localized convective gusts potentially well in excess of 60 MPH), large hail and very heavy rainfall. This will especially be the case over the areas with the SLIGHT outlook. By early evening, over our southeastern counties, a weakening trend is expected although there could be a few strong storms here as well. Showers and storms will end over land areas for Friday night, but a chance of convection will continue over the Gulf waters to our south. As far as Saturday goes, there are a lot of model inconsistencies. Some of the Hi-Res solutions really aren`t too enthused with regard to convective activity on Saturday, the GFS shows some coverage, while the EURO is more robust in coverages of showers and thunderstorms for Saturday afternoon. For now will continue to go with the EURO (NBM) with the likely coverage which is in best agreement with our neighbors as well as there will be plenty of instability and probably quite a few residule outflow boundaries across the area. Highs on Friday will warm up quickly in advance of the MCS, rising to the lower 90s over inland areas and upper 80s along the coast. Lows Friday night should range from the upper 60s well inland to the low 70s over the interior south, and some mid to upper 70s along the immediate coastal areas. Perhaps a little cooler on Saturday in the wake of the MCS, with highs generally in the upper 80s with a few lower 90s. /12 && .MOB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... AL...None. FL...None. MS...None.

.DISCUSSION... Issued at 341 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 Widely scattered elevated showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue to spread over much of the area through the rest of the afternoon and into tonight in advance of a shortwave trough moving east/southeast across South Dakota and Nebraska. With the instability axis well to our west and weak lapse rates overhead, the greater threat of severe weather remains to our west through the early evening hours. Latest CAMs continue to indicate more organized storm development over central Nebraska after 00z in association with a surface cold front and expand these storms, which should remain elevated across our area, eastward into portions of eastern Nebraska through the overnight hours. Hail may be the initial threat with these storms before a transition to a wind/hail threat as they move into our southwestern CWA. Showers and a few storms should linger eastward into the overnight hours before dissipating Friday morning. Behind this, low clouds and fog are expected to spread across the area. Mostly dry conditions are expected through the weekend as a midlevel ridge builds into the central Plains. A weak surface boundary is forecast to stall across the area Saturday night and could be the focus for a few isolated showers and thunderstorms, but chances remain on the low side for this. The main story as we head into next week will be the heat. Monday looks the warmest as we will take a good run at our first day at or above 100 for the season. With dewpoints in the 60s to near 70, heat indices will rise into the low 100s. With the 850mb thermal ridge remaining overhead into Monday night, we could approach record warm lows in the mid to upper 70s, especially south of I-80. Better precipitation chances come by mid-week as a strong upper trough moves into the central Plains. && .AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday evening) Issued at 620 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 TSRA are likely to affect KLNK for a few hours this evening but then a break is expected. SHRA and maybe a few TSRA will be around KOFK and may skirt the KOMA area too. Ceilings could drop to MVFR in some of this precipitation. Later tonight, expect cloud bases to lower to widespread MVFR and pockets of IFR. Model solutions are kind of all over the place, but recent HRRR runs suggest maybe a bit more coverage of TSRA in the area after 06Z until around 12Z. MVFR or lower ceilings are likely to linger into Friday afternoon, with a trend toward VFR mid or late afternoon. && .OAX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... NE...None.

834 PM PDT Thu Jun 9 2022 .SYNOPSIS...An atmospheric river moving into the region will bring periods of seasonally unusual heavy rain to the area through early Friday morning. This may result in hydrologic and other impacts that may extend into the weekend. Showery and cool weather will continue through the weekend into the early part of next week with potentially drier and warmer weather towards mid week. && .SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...Western WA is in the midst of an Atmospheric River event, more typical of fall/winter, with widespread moderate to heavy rain across the region. Highest amounts so far, in the past 24 hours, have been along the central coast and southern Olympics where 1.50-2.50" of rain has fallen. We`ve picked up close to 0.75-1.25" across the Seattle metro area as well. Rain will be tapering off after midnight tonight based on the NBM and HRRR solutions. Heavy rainfall in the Cascades is ongoing although rivers for the most part have been slower to respond and will continue to monitor for rises, fast flows and possible flooding (on a few rivers). 33 Previous discussion...Lighter rain this morning has transitioned into moderate to heavier stratiform precipitation across all of Western Washington. As of around 3 PM low elevation rainfall amounts have ranged from around 0.75" along the coast, and 0.25" to 0.65" over the interior. Ensemble guidance, including higher resolution systems continue to consistently show the plume of deep moisture progressively shifting to the south and east overnight. This will shift the emphasis on the heavier rainfall towards the west slopes of the Cascades from Snohomish County Southward overnight. Storm total precipitation amounts of 2" to 3" are expected to fall over the Olympic Mountains and the Cascades through Friday morning. Snow levels are expected to remain well above 11,000 feet overnight, so precipitation will fall as rain for all but high volcanic peaks. It should also be noted that rainfall rates may briefly be significant (in excess of 0.5"/hr) which may cause rapid rises on area rivers and streams as well as ponding in urban areas. Steadier rainfall will taper off tonight into Friday morning, transitioning to showery weather for much of the area Friday. Steadier, but also lighter precipitation will linger over the mountains, especially the Cascades. A secondary surge of moisture will bring additional enhancement to the rain late Friday into Friday evening. Ensemble guidance as well as the higher resolution deterministic runs seem to have settled on the emphasis for the heavier amounts to be south of the area, mostly over the Oregon Cascades. Cooler air aloft will begin to work into the area on Friday. This may introduce a bit of instability and a slight chance of thunderstorms is possible Friday afternoon. Flow on Saturday will be more onshore with showers over much of the area and ongoing steadier precipitation over the Cascades. A trough will move across the area Sunday into Monday for additional rain chances. A system on Sunday is forecast to be mainly south of the area, with the heaviest rainfall into OR, and scattered showers for the area and a bit of enhancement mainly to the precipitation over the central and south Washington Cascades. Temperatures will generally remain near or just below normal through the weekend. .LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...A cool, generally unsettled pattern will remain in place Monday into Tuesday with lingering chances of rain showers. As previously discussed, ensembles continue to show an optimistic trend towards upper level ridging affecting the region towards midweek for potentially drier, warming weather. Temperatures will likely remain just below normal at least early next week with a bump to at least normal and possibly just above normal midweek. && .AVIATION...A frontal system will continue to push its way through Western Washington tonight into early Friday and will continue to bring moderate to heavy rainfall to the region. Southwest flow persists aloft tonight with a very moist airmass in place. Conditions across area terminals remain a mixed bag of low- end MVFR to LIFR this evening. Expect these conditions to persist through late tonight with moderate to locally heavy rain persisting at times. Latest hi-res guidance has the heaviest rain clearing the interior terminals between 06-08Z and turning to showers by early Friday morning. Ceilings may briefly improve to low end VFR across the interior terminals around mid-morning Friday, before falling back down towards MVFR Friday afternoon and evening ahead of another system approaching the region. Southerly surface winds will become southwesterly with the frontal passage and a bit gusty in its vicinity and wake. KSEA...Primarily a mix of IFR or low MVFR conditions at the terminal this evening. Widespread rain, moderate to heavy at times, will continue through late tonight. Conditions are expected to gradually improve Friday morning. Some low level wind shear is expected tonight ahead of the approaching cold front. Surface winds generally southerly 4 to 10 knots. 27/14 && .MARINE...A frontal system will continue to make its way across the region tonight, bringing small craft advisory southerly winds to the coastal and inland waters. Modest onshore will follow the passage of the cold front on Friday. Deepening low pressure east of the Cascades will lead to stronger onshore flow over the weekend for the potential of another round of small craft advisory winds over the coastal waters and parts of the inland waters. The central and eastern portions of the Strait of Juan de Fuca could be close to gale Sunday/Monday evenings. Coastal seas of 10 to 12 tonight will remain somewhat elevated into the weekend, primarily around 7 to 9 ft, before subsiding early next week. 27/14 && .HYDROLOGY...An unusually wet frontal system associated with an atmospheric river moving through the area will produce seasonally unusual heavy rainfall through Friday morning. The forecast remains for overall rainfall amounts of 1-2" over the Olympics and Cascades - with some areas picking up up to 2.5-3" through Friday morning. This rainfall coupled with late snowmelt and runoff is expected to produce sharp rises and fast flows on area rivers, with minor flooding possible at a few locations. At this time, this includes points on the Skagit, Snoqualmie and Cowlitz Rivers. The Skokomish River currently is not forecast to flood stage, but will continue to be monitored closely. In addition to impacts on area rivers, rain rates could be high enough (locally over 0.5"/hour) to cause excessive runoff creating minor nuisance flooding. While widespread landslide activity is unlikely, isolated landslides or high- elevation rockfalls cannot be ruled out. && .SEW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... WA...None.

753 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 ...New SHORT TERM... .SHORT TERM... (The rest of tonight) Issued at 753 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 The theme of the forecast remains intact for late tonight into Friday morning. In the near term, adjustments were made earlier to account for cluster of elevated showers and storms over SE KS. This activity has been pretty reluctant to build south of the border so far and will maintain only low PoPs in that region for the next few hours. The main focus is both to the NW across NE and to the west over the TX Panhandle. To the NW, storms are gradually increasing in coverage across western NE and are expected to grow upscale into an MCS and drop southeast into KS later tonight. Still some uncertainty as to whether the complex makes it all the way into NE OK late tonight, or we get scattered redevelopment on its outflow in combination with influences from the system approaching from the west. Speaking of the MCS to our west, the last several hours of CAM runs suggest this will be the dominant player in our weather thru tomorrow morning. An MCV is likely to develop from this more organized MCS, and is expected to move east-southeast across OK. The past several runs of the HRRR are focusing more into east-central and southeast OK as well as west- central AR for the MCS track, and will thus adjust severe probs to shift axis of higher values south a bit for the evening update. Locally heavy rainfall and flooding potential exists along the MCS track and will thus maintain Flood Watch. Lacy && .LONG TERM... (Friday through Thursday) Issued at 107 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 Thunderstorms with heavy rainfall will likely be ongoing Friday morning over portions of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas before the heavier precipitation shift east by early afternoon. Weak frontal boundary will move into far northeast Oklahoma/northwest Arkansas by late afternoon and depending on air-mass recovery, could see a few isolated thunderstorms redevelop early Friday evening. Given the limited coverage and uncertainty regarding storm development, just added slight pops for now. Cold front will push to near the Red River by Saturday morning before lifting back north Saturday night and becoming diffuse into Sunday. Warming trend will develop Sunday into Monday as upper ridge begins to build over the southern Plains. Dew-points were increased by a few degrees during this time period compared to the NBM guidance given the expected rainfall/moist soil conditions. This pushes heat indices into the 100-105 degree range both Sunday and Monday afternoon in some areas. This would likely be the first days with heat indices above 100 degrees this season, which could lead to the increased potential for more significant heat stress. Upper high briefly shifts into the southeast U.S. early next week with slightly cooler temperatures possible. The hot/humid weather quickly returns mid to late week as expansive upper high builds back across central/southern Plains. && .AVIATION... (00Z TAFS) Issued at 655 PM CDT Thu Jun 9 2022 Scattered to broken mid and high clouds are forecast to increase across the CWA this evening and overnight tonight ahead of an expected MCS approaching from the west and northwest. Latest thinking is for this convective complex to push into Eastern Oklahoma in the 07-09z time frame and into Northwest Arkansas around 09-10z. Within the storms...gusty to strong winds and heavy rainfall will be possible. Will continue with tempo groups for timing of the greater convective potential. Behind the main line of convection...there remains the potential for lingering showers and possibly embedded thunder before tapering off west to east mid/late morning Friday. Within the lingering showers...IFR/MVFR conditions will be possible across the CWA. By late morning to early afternoon Friday...conditions are forecast to lift back to VFR and try to scatter out from west to east.
