NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
322 am EDT Tue Mar 31 2015 


Short term (now through wednesday)... 
issued at 305 am EDT Tue Mar 31 2015 


Northwest flow will dominate the upper flow today and tonight. Meanwhile, a 
dry cold front passes today, extending from a surface low that will 
travel from the lower Great Lakes to the mid Atlantic states by this 
evening. Ahead of this frontal boundary, steady SW winds will help 
to warm things up. With the warmer GFS MOS guidance for highs due to 
its recent solid performance during good heating days. This will put 
most spots in the low and mid 70s for highs. Will have to watch our 
far southern and especially southeast County Warning Area near Lake Cumberland late this 
afternoon and early evening where just enough moisture convergence 
and destabilization could gather ahead of the front to fire of a 
stray shower or storm. Won't forecast any at this time as thinking 
is that activity will be just south of the state border. Will 
monitor through the day. This scenario is supported by current 
hi-res model solutions. 


Otherwise, surface high pressure dominates tonight and tomorrow, 
along with an upper ridge building into the area. This will continue 
to keep things dry. We will be a couple/few degrees cooler tomorrow 
as there is a subtle airmass/thickness change behind today's front. 
Should still see upper 60s and low 70s for another very nice Spring 
day. 


Long term (wednesday night through monday)... 
issued at 315 am EDT Tue Mar 31 2015 


Main challenge is the timing and impact of a late-week cold frontal 
passage, and the resulting potential for strong storms. Column 
starts out dry enough that Wed night pops will be slight chance at 
best. Deepening SW flow on Thursday will push precipitable water 
(pwat) over 1 inch, so will ramp pops up to high-end chance over 
most of the area with likely pops over southern Indiana. Best 
chances for thunder will be Thursday night with a 40-50 kt low-level 
jet overhead. The potential for strong/severe storms will be 
modulated by the timing of the fropa, which looks increasingly iffy 
for those looking for severe weather. European model (ecmwf) is the slowest solution 
as it hangs the front up over southern Indiana as a wave rides east-northeast 
along it, which would give US a chance to destabilize before a 
Friday fropa. The GFS and NAM (out to 12z fri) are faster, with the 
front hung up over Kentucky much of the day. This solution would 
keep enough clouds and rain in play that we'd remain stable if not 
completely undercut. Heavy rain is a more likely scenario, and will 
probably become focused where the front hangs up. Best shot at 2+ 
inch rain totals shows up in southern Indiana based on current 
grids, but placement may need to be adjusted. Convective nature of 
this system will put even higher totals in play somewhere in the 
area. Stay tuned. 


Fortunately this system is trending more progressive from one model 
run to the next, with precip tapering off Friday night. Canadian 
high pressure will bring a cool weekend, albeit not nearly as cold 
as this past weekend. Max temps in the 50s on Sat will recover to 
near climo for Sunday, with chilly but not frosty temps expected 
both mornings. 


Next week will begin with flat riding aloft and increasing SW 
low-level flow ahead of a system that will take shape over the 
plains. Just enough of a moisture tap to merit low-end chance pops 
on Monday, but confidence in precip is not high. Temps near climo 
for one more day.

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
issued at 100 am EDT Tue Mar 31 2015 


Mainly clear skies and VFR conditions are expected throughout the 
taf period. West-southwest winds will pick up in magnitude by late morning 
between 10 and 15 mph, gusting up around 25 mph at times. A dry cool 
front will slide through in the afternoon with winds veering 
northwesterly an slowly slackening. Winds will continue to veer 
tomorrow evening to a NE direction around 5 mph or less. As far as 
cloud cover GOES, expect only a few cu around 4-5 k feet and a few 
upper level clouds.
