Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 1:32 PM CST on January 25, 2015/


... Light wintry precipitation could cause slick spots Monday
morning...

A clipper will pass through the Ohio Valley this evening
continuing to bring rain. A sharp cold front will then slide in
behind this system shortly after midnight... with lingering
precipitation rapidly changing over to light snow or perhaps
pockets of freezing drizzle. Although precipitation is expected to
be very light from the pre-dawn hours through mid morning... the
combination of temperatures quickly falling into the 20s and wet
or snow dusted roadways may lead to some slick conditions. The
morning commute could be impacted negatively... especially on
untreated roadways. The most likely area for slick spots will be
east of I-65 and along and north of I-64. Snowfall accumulations
are expected to be a trace to a half an inch.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
311 PM EST sun Jan 25 2015 


Short term (now through Monday night)... 
issued at 310 PM EST sun Jan 25 2015 


..light wintry precipitation could cause slick spots overnight into 
Monday morning... 


The surface low associated with a strong pv anomaly is now working 
across southern Illinois, and will continue to slide east-southeast across our 
area this evening. Light to occasionally moderate rainfall will 
continue late this afternoon and evening ahead of this feature. Most 
spots should see around a quarter of an inch of rainfall, with 
locaized spots up to a half an inch. 


As the system departs to our east tonight, a sharp cold front will 
slide northwest to southeast across our area with rapidly dropping temperatures 
into the mid 20s. Enough low level moisture looks to linger during 
this time to support a change over to light snow. Can't rule out 
some freezing drizzle as well as saturation only GOES up to around 
-7 or -8 c, bringing the availability of ice crystals into question. 
Either way, the combination of wet roads (from recent heavier 
rainfall), and potential for a light snow dusting, or a very thin 
glaze of ice could lead to some travel problems ahead of and into 
the morning commute. Confidence isn't overly high in widespread 
travel problems, but enough that special mention should be given. 
Issued a Special Weather Statement to highlight concerns. If 
confidence does become higher, then can't rule out an upgraded 
product with future updates. Overall, kept light snow as the 
predominant p-type as we head toward dawn, with generally a half an 
inch or less of snow accumulation. Most likely area to see more 
problems with slick roads should be east of I-65 and along and north 
of I-64. 


Expect lingering light snow/flurries/or freezing drizzle along and 
east of I-75 through the first part of Monday. Temperatures will 
struggle for much of the day under steady cold advection and only 
expect highs in the low and mid 30s. Skies should stay mostly cloudy 
to cloudy under lingering low clouds. 


As we move into Monday evening/Monday night, we'll watch as the left 
exit region of an upper jet dives sharply south southeastward 
overnight. As it does so, 1000-700 mb moisture will pool underneath 
and should result in some light precipitation across the area, 
mostly in the form of light snow. Best location for this looks to be 
along and west of I-65 Monday evening, moving to along and east of 
I-65 late Monday night. 


Long term (tuesday through sunday)... 
issued at 250 PM EST sun Jan 25 2015 


Several light precipitation chances still remain the long term 
period as we remain in an unsettled weather pattern. 


Tues small vort waves on the back side of a broad upper trough will 
create snow shower chances during the morning hours and then 
possibly changing over to a rain/snow mix west of I-65/remaining 
snow east of I-65 during the afternoon hours. A light snow 
accumulation may result from this snow shower activity on Tuesday. 
Flurries will likely last into the evening hours. 


The next precip chances will come Wed night into thurs as a clipper 
system moves east across the upper Midwest. At this time, the low 
associated with this clipper looks to pass to our north and actually 
pull up a decent amount of warm air on Wed night. Precip may start 
as a brief wintry mix Wed night and then transition to plain rain as 
upper 30s and lower 40s temps get pulled into our area. Southerly 
winds and a noticeably warmer airmass will result in rain on thurs 
with high temps reaching the upper 40s to around 50. Precipitation 
will likely end thurs night as light snow or a rain/snow mix. 


Temps will run slightly below normal tues/Wed, then a warm day 
expected for thurs, and back to slightly below normal for the end of 
the week. 


The weekend forecast is much less certain with models backing off of 
any major weather systems to bring US notable precip. Have 
scaled back pops to 20% for Sat night/Sun night with snow or 
rain/snow being the p-type.

Aviation (18z taf update)... 
issued at 1200 PM EST sun Jan 25 2015 


Conditions will deteriorate through the taf period as a clipper 
system dives southeast into the Ohio Valley by this evening. Rain 
and associated lower cigs/vsbys will move into sdf/bwg shortly after 
the forecast GOES valid, holding off at Lex until early evening. 
Still expecting IFR conditions as the surface low settles over the 
sites which should occur by early evening and last until frontal passage 
occurs after midnight. Highest confidence in IFR is at ksdf and 
klex, with lower confidence at kbwg. A strong cold front will sweep 
through all sites, bringing gusty northwesterly winds (gusts in 
excess of 20 knots) along with a brief changeover to some light snow 
early Monday morning. Likely won't see any accumulations from this 
snow, but can't completely rule out a quick tenth of an inch or so. 
It should be noted that if moisture isn't deep enough, precipitation 
type could end as some freezing drizzle as surface temperatures 
quickly crash.
