NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
1141 am EST Fri Mar 6 2015 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through saturday)... 
issued at 300 am EST Fri Mar 6 2015 


Despite a practically non-existent pressure gradient across the 
region, several sites 3-5 knots of wind through 2 am. This wind has 
kept US just mixed enough, at least so far, to prevent quick drops 
in temperatures. The more sheltered locations, such as the 
Cynthiana, Brandenburg, and Richmond mesonet sites, have gone calm 
and consequently there temperatures have dropped to several degrees 
below 0. We still have a window for temperatures to drop quickly, 
and at 3 am more of the sites are coming in calm, so still have 
forecast lows down at or below zero for most sites. 


Surface high pressure over US now will sink southeast of the area 
tonight and Saturday. Winds will start to pick up out of the south 
later this afternoon, bringing a little more moisture into the 
region as well as warmer temperatures. Have lows tonight down into 
the teens and possibly some single digits. Higher dewpoint air 
moving into the region may cause some fog to form over the snowpack, 
but not confident enough in this scenario to put more than patchy 
fog into the forecast. For Saturday southwesterly winds will 
continue to bring in warmer air, with highs likely in the 40s for 
many locations. 


Long term (saturday night through thursday)... 
issued at 400 am EST Fri Mar 6 2015... 


The good news in the long term is warming temperatures. The bad news 
is that will cause lots of melting, which will keep creeks and 
rivers running high, and may cause water problems for low-water 
crossings on rural roads. 


Another fly in the ointment for the long term is yet another precip 
maker coming into the southeast U.S. On the southern branch of the 
jet Monday night and Tuesday. The northern extent of this one is 
still being battled by the models, with the Gem bringing it north 
farther than either the European model (ecmwf) or GFS, which has the southern-most 
track. For now will split the difference and go with The 
Middle-Ground Euro, which brings a chance of showers to our southern 
through eastern counties. Unlike the past two rain events, through, 
this one appears to be relatively light for US, with expected 
rainfall less than 0.10" - at least for now. 


With a 500 mb pattern that thinks it's in the groundhog day movie, 
another disturbance ejects out of the semi-permanent SW U.S. Trof, 
into the southeast U.S. By Friday, complete with abundant tropical 
moisture. While still far too early to place any Faith on exactly 
where this one will track, at least there does not appear to be any 
cold air close enough to make US think we're in Boston, as this one 
should remain all rain. 


Temperature-wise through the extended, we'll warm from the 40s on 
Sunday to the 50s by Tuesday, and even into the 60s for at least 
southern Kentucky by Wednesday and Thursday. Overnight lows will be 
in the 20s Sunday morning, then moderate 5 degrees upward each night 
through the period. With warm air and dewpoints above 32 riding 
north over the snowpack, this will likely result in some areas of 
nighttime fog each night through the extended.

Aviation (18z taf update)... 
issued at 1141 am EST Fri Mar 6 2015 


High pressure will keep our weather quiet during this taf period. A 
weak storm system will cross the Great Lakes but precipitation 
associated with it should remain to our north. 


There will be some low level moisture in the area tonight, but at 
this time it appears that clouds, if any, should remain scattered. 


Variable winds today under the high will concentrate from the south-southwest 
tonight into tomorrow as the high moves away.
