..Forecast update... 
issued at 115 am EDT Wed Apr 16 2014 


Skies have cleared across the region. However a light northeasterly 
wind flow is keeping temperatures from dropping too quickly at the 
moment. Readings from the Kentucky mesonet were generally in the 
upper 20s to the lower 30s. Cold spots thus far were at Brandenburg 
and Cynthiana with 27 degrees. As winds slacken off later this 
morning, we should see temperatures fall at a slightly quicker 
rate. A minor update to the gridded forecast was done to adjust 
hourly T/TD to bring them in line with current observations. 




Update issued at 945 PM EDT Tue Apr 15 2014 


Most of the clouds have dissipated this evening and high pressure 
has moved into the lower Ohio Valley this evening. Temperatures have 
already dropped into the mid to upper 30s in many locations. Made 
just some minor adjustments to the temperatures tonight. The coldest 
temperatures look to be across portions of the Bluegrass tonight 
where lows will be in the mid 20s. Record lows are not out of the 
question tonight, with best shot for this possibly at Bowling Green. 
The forecast and records are below. 


Forecast record/year 
Bowling Green 27 27/1928 
Louisville 30 27/1875 
Lexington 26 20/1875 
Frankfort 26 25/1962 


Short term (now through Wednesday night)... 
issued at 310 PM EDT Tue Apr 15 2014 


A hard freeze is expected tonight. A surface ridge now located along 
the lower Missouri Valley will migrate east and will lie right over 
the commonwealth shortly after midnight. Skies will begin to clear 
from west to east by late afternoon and will become almost 
completely clear towards midnight. 


Nearly ideal conditions for radiational cooling will allow lows to 
fall into the mid 20s across many rural locations early tomorrow. In 
more urbanized areas, expect lows in the upper 20s. Freezing 
temperatures will linger well past dawn Wednesday. 


The center of high pressure will move over New England Wednesday 
afternoon, with an axis extending southwest over the Tennessee 
Valley. Expect mostly clear skies Wednesday through early Thursday, 
with light southeasterly winds. Wednesday will stay cool, with highs 
only ranging from the mid to upper 50s. Lows Wednesday night will 
fall well down into the mid to upper 30s. 


Long term (thursday through tuesday)... 
issued at 300 PM EDT Tue Apr 15 2014 


Thursday will be characterized by ridging over the southeast conus, 
and developing low-level return flow as surface high pressure 
retreats farther into New England. After a chilly (perhaps even 
frosty) start, temps will recover to near seasonal normals. 


Both northern and southern stream disturbances will move into the 
eastern Continental U.S. On Friday, but never quite seem to phase. European model (ecmwf) comes 
closer to phasing the two streams than the GFS, but both point to 
the distinct possibility that the Ohio Valley will be gapped by the 
precip. Still looks like just enough forcing to squeeze out 
scattered convection, but will limit the mention of thunder to a 
slight chance and the quantitative precipitation forecast looks meager. Currently holding on to 
slight chance pops into Friday night, but with the models trending 
toward a split between the northern and southern stream systems, 
could easily end up dry. 


Shortwave upper ridging will keep US dry over the weekend. Saturday 
will be on the cool side with north-NE low-level flow, but rising 
heights will put Sunday back above normal. 


A progressive southern stream system will bring the next round of 
precip to the Ohio Valley around Monday, but confidence in the exact 
timing is limited. Rain is a pretty good bet somewhere between 
Sunday night and Monday night, but timing is too uncertain to put 
more than a chance pop in any given time period. Temps will trend 
back on the high side of normal.

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
issued at 115 am EDT Wed Apr 16 2014 


High pressure will continue to spread across the region early this 
morning. Clear skies and generally light and variable winds are 
expected for the remainder of the overnight hours. VFR conditions 
are expected early this morning and throughout the day Wednesday. 
We will see a gradual shift in surface winds to the southeast during 
the day with speeds of 7-9kts. A few high clouds will push in from 
the west later today, but will have no impact on aviation.
