NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
643 am EDT Fri may 22 2015 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through saturday)... 
issued at 304 am EDT Fri may 22 2015 


Patchy fog in central Kentucky early this morning will dissipate as 
the sun comes up and temperatures start to rise. 


A weak surface trof will slide southward today, reaching the Ohio 
River by this evening and then washing out. The front will have 
little effect on the weather though as we enjoy a day of mostly 
sunny skies and west breezes. High temperatures should be in the 
lower and middle 70s...just a few degrees below normal. 


High pressure will build in tonight, especially over northern and 
eastern sections of the forecast area. The Mercury will drop well 
into the 50s, with some 40s possible in the Blue Grass. 


The high will move to the mid-Atlantic coast tomorrow. In the Ohio 
Valley we will experience light return flow and increasing 
thicknesses, leading to slightly warmer temperatures. Afternoon 
highs should be near 80. 


Long term (saturday night through thursday)... 
issued at 255 am EDT Fri may 22 2015 


The synoptic pattern at the start of the long term period will 
feature an amplifying ridge over the Ohio Valley in response to an 
ejecting trough over the southern/Central Plains. This ridge will 
slowly meander to the east through the long term period, allowing 
deep southwesterly flow to envelop the region. This regime will 
bring an unsettled period of weather through much of next week. 


While much of the long term looks active, the good news is that 
Sunday is continuing to trend drier. The latest guidance suite 
continues to suggest the ridge axis will remain over the Ohio Valley 
through the afternoon hours, helping to keep the southwesterly flow 
and associated impulses west of the region. Given this trend, have 
continued to lower pops for Sunday afternoon, keeping only slight 
chances in across the far western County Warning Area. If the latest trends hold, 
then we may be able to go completely dry for all areas on Sunday. 
Certainly welcome news for those with outdoor plans this Holiday 
weekend! Given the building ridge aloft, 850 temps rising to around 
15c, and less expected cloud cover, have bumped up temperatures for 
Sunday which puts highs in the low to mid 80s. 


The remainder of the long term forecast looks rather active as deep 
southwesterly flow takes over in the wake of the departing ridge 
axis. Precipitable waters  will climb to near 1.75 inches beginning Monday and 
lasting through much of the upcoming week. Unfortunately, rounds of 
showers and thunderstorms will be tied to very weak (some 
convectively-induced) perturbations passing through the 
mid/upper-level flow. Therefore, timing individual waves continues 
to remain very difficult at this juncture. If we get a wave pushing 
through overnight, then much of the following day could end up being 
dry, and vice-versa. Therefore, will continue to hold pops in the 
40-50% range through much of the extended forecast until the 
mesoscale details can be ascertained. Widespread severe weather 
continues to look unlikely. However, depending on timing, enough 
instability in the afternoons may combine with just enough 
mid/upper-level flow to produce some stronger storms capable of 
gusty winds. 


With the uncertainty in convective timing comes uncertainty in 
temperatures. Went with a guidance blend of low to mid 80s through 
much of the week, but a day with more sun could push temps into the 
mid/upper 80s whereas a cloudy day filled with convective debris may 
keep temperatures in the upper 70s. Overnight lows will be rather 
mild given the moist low-levels, with readings expected in the mid 
and upper 60s each night.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
updated at 643 am EDT Fri may 22 2015 


The patchy fog that has developed early this morning will dissipate 
once the temperature begins to rise after sunup. 


A weak, dry trof will approach from the north today, reaching the 
Ohio River this evening and then dissipating with little fanfare. 
Surface winds ahead of the trof will be mostly from the west around 
5 to 10 knots. 


High pressure will build in tonight with light winds and VFR 
conditions. Patchy fog isn't entirely out of the question by the 
end of the taf period, but with expected high cloud cover possibly 
keeping fog at Bay, confidence not great enough to include br in the 
tafs this far out.
