NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
728 PM EDT Fri Oct 24 2014 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through Saturday night)... 
issued at 311 PM EDT Fri Oct 24 2014 


An upper vort Max is now centered over eastern KY, with our County Warning Area 
generally in a subsident regime behind this feature. Most of the 
clouds have thinned and scattered, however a few clouds will remain 
in the region for the afternoon and evening. Temperatures are 
currently in the low and mid 60s, with a few locations likely on 
their way to the upper 60s. 


Do expect a mostly clear night, however do have potential for some 
variable cloudiness at times, especially toward dawn. Will only 
mention patchy fog coverage across our eastern and southeastern 
zones, closest to the center of the surface high and far enough 
removed from the light gradient winds that will pick up toward dawn. 
Do expect to have a fairly wide range in low temperatures with the 
coolest air across our eastern County Warning Area in the low and mid 40s. Our northwest 
County Warning Area will be milder around 50 for lows as some low clouds and a light 
SW wind should take over toward dawn. 


Will see a batch of lower clouds move into the area around sunrise 
ahead of a weak frontal boundary that is set to move through later 
tomorrow. Moisture looks just deep enough across southern Indiana 
that we could squeeze out a sprinkle, however without the presence 
of a stronger forcing mechanism would prefer to leave any mention 
out for now. Otherwise, expect sky cover to go from mostly cloudy in 
the morning, to seeing some breaks in the afternoon, especially in 
our west. This will make out temperature forecast a bit tricky as 
temperatures will be somewhat dependent on how much sun we see. Will 
get an steady warm advective component ahead of the front also so 
still feel pretty good about mostly low and mid 70s across the 
region. A few NE counties in the Bluegrass may be confined to the 
upper 60s. 


The frontal boundary passes late tomorrow afternoon into the evening with 
little more than a wind shift. Expect a mostly clear night with lows 
mostly in the 45-50 range. 


Long term (sunday through friday)... 
issued at 245 PM EDT Fri Oct 24 2014 


The long term will feature a fairly active pattern in generally a 
meridional flow across the Continental U.S. Which looks to become more 
amplified toward the end of next week. 


Sun/Mon look to be dry with warmer than normal temps as surface high 
pressure and upper level ridging rule the region. Mon (highs in the 
lower 80s) will be noticeably warmer than sun (highs in the 70s) due 
to gusty southwest winds in return flow on the back side of the sfc 
high pressure. These winds will advect in unseasonably warm air 
which may come close to record high temps on the 27th and record 
warm low temps on the 28th. Here are those records: 


Record Max for Oct 27 record warm low for Oct 28 
Louisville 84 (1940) 64 (1991 and previous yrs) 
Lexington 87 (1940) 64 (1984) 
Bowling Green 87 (1919) 65 (1984) 
Frankfort 89 (1940) 61 (1899) 


Clouds will be on the increase tues with a cold front bringing rain 
to the region late tues into Wed. This front looks to bring a band 
of light, slow moving rain with a few rumbles of thunder through the 
area mainly tues night, but extending into Wed morning across south 
central Kentucky. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts are expected to total less than a quarter 
inch from this rainfall. Temps should still warm solidly into the 
mid 70s for highs tues afternoon and then falling back into the 
lower 60s for highs Wed afternoon. 


For the end of the week, expect generally a cool pattern to dominate 
as ridging builds over The Rockies with troughing over the Midwest 
in response to this amplification. Another light precipitation 
chance may accompany an upper level shortwave trough in the 
thurs/Fri time frame. Some long range models indicate a good cold 
shot of air for next weekend (nov 1 and 2) which may result in a 
killing freeze for agricultural interests.

Aviation (00z taf update)... 
updated at 705 PM EDT Fri Oct 24 2014 


Mostly clear skies will prevail overnight with just some passing 
high level clouds. Some scattered lower level clouds may develop 
during the afternoon Saturday with possible broken ceilings later in 
the day. 


Winds will stay light tonight, generally from the south southwest at 
under 6kt, while staying mostly calm at bwg. 


Fog is once again likely at bwg with probable MVFR ceilings at bwg. 
Brief IFR visibilities at bwg may develop during the pre-dawn hours. 


Scattered to occasionally broken cloud cover is possible Saturday. 
Winds will generally stay from the southwest at around 5 to 10 mph.
