..Forecast update... 
issued at 1034 am EDT Fri Jul 25 2014 


Areas of fog are starting to mix out across the southeastern part of 
the County Warning Area. However, expansive fog/low stratus continues over much of 
southeastern and eastern Kentucky. Partly to mostly sunny skies were 
noted across southern Indiana and central Kentucky this morning. We 
will see some high cirrus blowoff from upstream convection across 
eastern Iowa and NE Missouri. This convection is still moving off to 
the southeast, however, latest model simulations still have this 
complex dying off before reaching our region. The high level cirrus 
may impact afternoon temperatures across our northwest and western 
sections this afternoon. Afternoon highs in the lower to middle 80s 
still look attainable at this time. 


Short term (now through saturday)... 
issued at 257 am EDT Fri Jul 25 2014 


High pressure moving from the Ohio Valley to the mid-Atlantic coast 
will keep our skies mostly clear and our winds light today and 
tonight. We'll be a little warmer today than we were yesterday, with 
highs in the lower and middle 80s, but dew points will still only 
be in the 55 to 60 degree range so we should still be able to enjoy 
a comfortable Summer afternoon. Lows tonight will be in the 60s. 


On Saturday a cold front will begin to approach from the northwest. 
Thunderstorms will be ongoing from Friday night into Saturday to our 
north from Illinois through Indiana to Ohio. Down here, sounding 
progs show capping and a fair amount of dry air in the profile, so 
any storm activity in the lmk County Warning Area is expected to remain scattered. 
The best chance for storms will be north of I-64 towards Saturday 
evening. 


Heat and humidity will return on Saturday with afternoon highs 
around 90 and heat index readings in the mid 90s. 


Long term (saturday night through thursday)... 
issued at 334 am EDT Fri Jul 25 2014 


Saturday night through Sunday night: 


An active start to the long-term period as thunderstorm activity 
lights up across southern Indiana and into northern Kentucky 
overnight Saturday. Starting from the top down, height falls will 
begin across the region ahead of a well-advertised Stout upper 
trough digging down from Canada and the Great Lakes. Mid-level lapse 
rates will be decent in the overnight period, exceeding 6.5 degrees 
c/km and both 0-3km and 0-6km shear will be on the increase with 
35-40+ kts., Particularly across southern Indiana. Closer to the 
surface, low pressure initially over the plains states will have the 
ability to ride the periphery of exiting high pressure, eventually 
phasing with a low digging down from the Great Lakes, thanks to the 
approaching trough. A cold front associated with the low will be 
crossing the forecast area by late Sunday but its slow approach will 
provide aid as a lifting mechanism. Looking at the total atmosphere, 
pwats are depicted by the 00z GFS as flirting with the 2 inch mark, 
which is close to 2 Standard deviations above climo. Last but 
certainly not least, there will be instability to work with in the 
overnight period as low-level MUCAPE surpasses 1000 j/kg, again 
concentrated over the northern portions of the forecast area. Bottom 
line: combining the ingredients for copious amounts of moisture, 
good instability, and lifting, there is a good chance of seeing an 
mesoscale convective system develop Saturday night and track across southern in and northern 
Kentucky before dying out as it loses these key features for continued 
maintenance. The primary threats with any stronger storms that 
develop late Saturday through early Sunday will be heavy to locally 
torrential rainfall and strong to possibly severe winds. While the 
rain will certainly be welcome for many, runoff and quick hitting 
downpours, along with the potential for training, could produce some 
issues. Stay tuned as the time approaches and finer details come 
into view. 


For Sunday, thunderstorm chances look to continue with the focus 
shifting from the north to the east as the day progresses. A bit 
less confident in the details as it will likely depend on any early 
morning activity and remnant boundaries and cloud cover. Regardless, 
chances for storms will continue ahead of the front, currently 
looking to cross central Kentucky late Sunday. 


Temperatures will be rather warm overnight Saturday, ranging from 
the low to mid 70s but actually not too far from normal for this 
time of year. Highs on Sunday are currently forecast to range from 
the upper 80s in the north to the mid 90s in the south but cloud 
cover and precip could throw a wrench into this. 


Monday through Thursday night: 


Once the upper-level trough takes hold of the Ohio Valley, a 
significant airmass change will take place, allowing for much cooler 
than normal temperatures and clearing skies dominating much of next 
week. However, with lower-level moisture looking to linger around 
Monday and potentially even into early Tuesday, can not rule out 
showers from developing, particularly in the Bluegrass region. This 
pattern looks to be similar to what was experienced last week with 
the lingering low clouds and light precip. From Tuesday Onward, high 
pressure will be settling in, bringing a rather pleasant weather 
regime in the middle of next week. Look for temperatures to struggle 
to reach 80 Monday through Wednesday, and possibly exceeding that 
mark on Thursday. Lows will respond accordingly, ranging from the 
mid to upper 50s Monday night and Tuesday night, then near or 
slightly above 60 degrees on subsequent nights.

Aviation (18z taf update)... 
issued at 103 PM EDT Fri Jul 25 2014 


High pressure drifting eastward out of the Ohio Valley will continue 
to keep winds at the terminals light and variable this afternoon. 
Some scattered cu along with some high level cirrus from convection 
to the northwest will drift through the region this afternoon. 
However, this will not affect aviation activities. Light winds and 
VFR conditions are expected during the overnight period and through 
much of the day on Saturday.
