This morning's weather report and airspace update are shown
updated at 7:00 AM EDT 07.18.06.
DUAT AREA SYNOPSIS, 7/18/2006, 8:27 CDT
...PA/OH AND MID MS
VALLEYS... COLD FRONT/OUTFLOW BOUNDARY EXTEND FROM WESTERN NY TO A
WEAK WAVE LOCATED IN NORTH CENTRAL IL...AND THEN SOUTHWESTWARD INTO
NORTHERN MO. ELEVATED CONVECTION HAD DEVELOPED OVER CENTRAL IL THIS
MORNING WITHIN INSTABILITY AXIS AND ZONE OF WEAK WARM
ADVECTION...BUT STORMS SHOULD WEAKEN THIS MORNING AS WARM ADVECTION
CEASES. MORE INTENSE CONVECTION IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP THIS
AFTERNOON ALONG THE WEAK COLD FRONT/REMNANT OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES.
STRONG DAYTIME HEATING... STEEP MID LEVEL LAPSE RATES AND A MOIST
BOUNDARY LAYER WILL RESULT IN MLCAPES TO RANGE FROM 2000 J/KG OVER
PA/OH TO NEARLY 4000 J/KG ACROSS SOUTHERN IL/EAST CENTRAL MO. WARM
MID LEVEL TEMPERATURES SHOULD LIMIT WESTERN EXTENT OF CONVECTIVE
DEVELOPMENT TO EASTERN MO/IL...BUT MOST INTENSE CONVECTION SHOULD
BE LOCATED ON THE EASTERN EDGE OF THIS CAP. ONCE STORMS
DEVELOP...THE AMOUNT OF INSTABILITY AND 25-30 KNOTS DEEP LAYER
SHEAR WILL FAVOR MULTICELL STORM CLUSTERS WITH HAIL AND WIND
...NORTHERN PLAINS... TIMING AND LOCATION OF SEVERE CONVECTION
IS QUESTIONABLE DUE TO SUBTLE DIFFERENCES IN THE CURRENT AND PAST
ETA/GFS MODEL RUNS. HOWEVER...MODELS GENERALLY SUPPORT A LOW LEVEL
JET/WARM ADVECTION DEVELOPING OVERNIGHT ACROSS THE EASTERN
DAKOTAS/WESTERN MN AS A SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVES INTO THE NORTHERN
ROCKIES. THE BOUNDARY LAYER WILL BE STRONGLY CAPPED...BUT STEEP
LAPSE RATES ABOVE THE INVERSION WILL BE FAVORABLE FOR ELEVATED
CONVECTION TO DEVELOP AFTER 03-06Z. EFFECTIVE SHEAR WILL BE
INCREASING OVERNIGHT AND THE STEEP LAPSE RATES/ELEVATED CAPE MAY
SUPPORT STORMS WITH SEVERE HAIL.
Pretty cool, eh? But wait... it gets even better.
