Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
333 am EDT Fri Aug 1 2014 


Short term (now through saturday)... 
issued at 328 am EDT Fri Aug 1 2014 


Early morning satellite imagery showing mostly clear skies across 
much of southern Indiana and west-central Kentucky. Some mid-high 
level cloudiness was located over east-central Kentucky but was starting 
to move off to the east. Kentucky mesonet observations and National Weather Service 
observations show temperatures generally in the upper 50s to the 
lower 60s early this morning. Expect temperatures to fall slightly 
over the next few hours with overnight minimums cooling into the 
upper 50s to around 60. 


For today/tonight, the multi-model consensus continues to advertise 
some precipitation potential in two areas. The first is across our 
northwestern County Warning Area across southern in, with a secondary area down 
toward the I-75 corridor of east-central Kentucky. A relative minimum in 
precipitation potential still looks to exist across north-central 
and south-central Kentucky where the models show a continued relative 
minimum in precipitable water values. Feel that best threat areas 
for precipitation are in the two areas outlined above...with perhaps 
the more favored region being across our northwest where weak vorticity 
maximum passing through may aid in providing enough lift to get some 
isolated showers/storms going. Highs today look to warm into the 
middle to upper 80s. Warmest spots look to be across our 
south/southwestern areas near Bowling Green where upper 80s will be 
likely. 


Deeper moisture looks to increase slightly tonight ahead of the next 
vorticity Max swinging through. While upper forcing looks 
sufficient, decent stability looks to be in place to limit overall 
coverage below 10 percent. Thus, will carry some isolated pops 
early this evening, but shut off pops after sunset. Lows look to 
cool into the 60-65 degree range. The superblend guidance seems to 
have a decent handle on temps through this period. 


For Saturday, another stringy vorticity Max will rotate through the 
region. Overall the model guidance seems to indicate that this will 
pass through faster leaving less forcing in place during the 
afternoon hours. It appears that isolated diurnally driven 
convection will be possible. The best chances look to be out near 
the I-75 corridor region of central Kentucky. Expected cloud cover will 
likely limit temperatures to a certain extent on Saturday compared 
to Friday. Highs of 78-82 look likely across the Bluegrass region 
during the afternoon hours with lower to middle 80s across much of 
central/south-central Kentucky. Warmest readings will likely be down near 
kbwg where readings of 85-90 will be possible. 


Long term (saturday night through thursday)... 
issued at 300 PM EDT Fri Aug 1 2014 


Strong 500mb ridging off the southeastern coast is blocking the 
movement of the current longwave western ridge and Great Lakes 
troughing that has been in place for several days now. For the 
latter portion of this weekend, mid-level troughing aligned over the 
commonwealth will essentially weaken in place as a shortwave 
disturbance is forecast to move southeast across the western Great 
Lakes Monday. Weak surface high pressure will develop across 
Illinois Sunday ahead of this incoming shortwave. This will shift 
our surface winds to light northeasterly late Saturday and bring in 
drier air with lower pwats. 


Any lingering isolated to scattered thunderstorms will diminish 
Saturday night and clear skies will develop Sunday, very likely 
lasting through at least Tuesday. Under full early August sun and 
subsidence, expect a warming trend, with highs at or just exceeding 
90 by Tuesday and Wednesday. Overnight lows will not become too 
uncomfortable until late Wednesday, generally staying in the mid to 
upper 60s. Light southwest flow will arrive Wednesday, which will 
begin a trend toward more uncomfortably humid conditions by late 
Wednesday or early Thursday. Lows early Thursday will likely remain 
in the lower 70s. 


A shortwave will move across Michigan either Thursday or Friday 
according to the European model (ecmwf) or the slower GFS. The GFS has slowed in it 
most recent run, and holds off the threat for storms until late 
Thursday while the European model (ecmwf) brings in a decent chance of precipitation 
during the day Thursday. Will go with a blend of these two models, 
bringing a chance of storms in Thursday.

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
issued at 118 am EDT Fri Aug 1 2014 


VFR conditions are expected at the taf sites through the upcoming 
forecast period. Some mid-high level cloudiness will continue to 
stream eastward across mainly southern Kentucky overnight. Some light fog 
may be possible out toward the klex terminal. However, the overall 
threat looks fairly low at this time. Light and variable winds are 
expected overnight. Winds look to be out of the NE to east-northeast during 
the day on Friday at the terminals.
