NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
715 PM EDT Fri Mar 27 2015 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through Saturday night)... 
issued at 315 PM EDT Fri Mar 27 2015 


An upper trough continues to cause light snow showers/flurries and 
light rain showers/sprinkles across the area late this afternoon. 
Expect this light precip to continue through the evening hours and 
then dissipate after sunset. Precip amounts still look to be next 
to nothing with this very light precip. 


The rest of the short term period is dry with high pressure 
remaining in control at the sfc and an upper trough aloft providing 
unseasonably cold temperatures for late Mar. The temp/cloud 
forecast is a bit tricky for tonight. It's tough to say how long 
low clouds will stick around in the northerly flow/cold air advection regime. 
Compromising with model data and National Weather Service neighbors, gradually have 
clouds taper from west to east through the night which will result 
in low temps in the low to mid 20s. If clouds clear faster than 
currently forecast, valley locations and typical cold spots could 
bottom out in the upper teens. 


Sat will be sunny but chilly. Northerly winds and the cold airmass 
should limit highs to the low to mid 40s. Another cold night awaits 
for Sat night with low temps again dipping into the lower 20s...a 
few upper teens possible. 


Since hard freezes will occur both tonight and Sat night, any 
outdoor plants should be covered or protected.

Long term (sunday through friday)... 
issued at 300 PM EDT Fri Mar 27 2015 


The surface high pressure of Canadian origin responsible for 
unseasonably cold temperatures Saturday will move east of the 
commonwealth by Sunday afternoon. This, and a vigorous low moving 
north of Lake Superior late in the day, will bring a decent 
southwesterly return flow Sunday afternoon, resulting in a distinct 
warmup after a chilly morning. After lows in the mid 20s, 
temperatures Sunday afternoon will rebound well into the 50s, albeit 
with increasing afternoon cloudiness. 


A cold front will move southeast of the Ohio River Sunday night with just 
a chance of some light showers or sprinkles. This front is actually 
of Pacific origin, meaning the air behind this boundary will almost 
be warmer than the Continental air ahead of it. 


For the period Monday through Thursday, broad 500mb ridging and warm 
temperatures centered over the northern rockies will push east, 
spreading much milder temperatures first towards the Mississippi 
River, and then across the lower Ohio Valley. Normal highs for the 
first of April are in the lower to mid 60s. By Tuesday, we should 
match these pretty easily, with highs rising from the lower to mid 
60s on Monday to as high as 70 from Tuesday onwards. Any light 
precipitation will end Monday morning with clearing skies. 


Expect mostly clear skies and dry weather Monday afternoon through 
Wednesday morning. Modified Gulf moisture will begin to return 
mid-week, but extended guidance is not in agreement when. Think the 
GFS is way overdone in breaking out showers within a warm air 
advection regime on Wednesday. Feel that the European model (ecmwf) and Canadian are 
more on target in holding off a chance of showers until Wednesday 
night or Thursday. 


A cold frontal passage Thursday evening will bring a good chance of 
showers and even some thunder. Distinctly cooler temperatures on tap 
for Friday with highs in the 50s.

Aviation (00z taf update)... 
issued at 715 PM EDT Fri Mar 27 2015 


Surface high pressure ridge from Wisconsin through eastern Oklahoma 
at 22z will drift slowly east through the taf period. VFR cigs and 
flurries will dissipate this evening as the low level moisture field 
pushes off to the southeast, with only scattered clouds at most for 
the remainder of the forecast time frame. North to northwest winds 
will drop to less than 7 kts by sunset 00z and remain light through 
the period.
