Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
621 am EDT sun Aug 30 2015 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through monday)... 
issued at 245 am EDT sun Aug 30 2015 


Latest water vapor imagery showed two features of interest early 
this morning. A slow moving middle-level trough lied just to our 
northwest while a Gulf trough was advancing northward. At the 
surface...weak high pressure was situated over the Carolinas with a 
weak cool front to our northwest. Plenty of cirrus and higher 
dewpoints were keeping readings in the upper 60s to low 70s. 


For today...the latest near term and hi-res model data is in good 
agreement across the lower Ohio Valley. A stray shower or storm is 
possible west of I-65 this morning...but better chances will be this 
afternoon and evening across the entire area during peak heating as 
the atmosphere becomes moderately unstable. Overall...coverage is 
expected to be a bit higher compared to yesterday so probability of precipitation were 
placed in the 40 to 50 percent range...peaking between 2 and 6 PM. A 
stronger wind gust or two may occur given dcape around 500 
j/kg...and brief heavy rainfall is also possible with precipitable waters  around 
1.5 inches and weak flow aloft. 


The upper trough weakens tonight...but couldn't rule out a stray 
shower or storm overnight. If clouds clear out...patchy fog may 
develop in the favored locations. 


Monday is expected to be a relatively drier day as the upper trough 
continues to weaken though given warm temperatures and dewpoints in 
the upper 60s...a pop up shower or storm remains possible during 
the afternoon and early evening. 


Temperatures through the short term are expected to be right around 
normal...mainly in the middle to upper 80s for highs and lows in the 
middle 60s to near 70 in the urban areas. 


Long term (monday night through saturday)... 
issued at 300 am EDT sun Aug 30 2015 


Small chances for precipitation remain for most afternoon/evening 
hours throughout the long term period as we remain in a weather 
pattern largely controlled by upper level ridging but containing 
weak transient waves which may combine with daytime heating to 
produce shower/storms each afternoon/evening. Any storms that do 
form over the coming week look to remain below severe limits at this 
time due to the lack of strong triggers/forcing. Using a multi- 
model consensus, decided to keep Tuesday and Friday dry. 


As for temperatures, think that most days will stay at or slightly 
above normal with highs ranging from the upper 80s to lower 90s each 
day. Low temperatures should range through the upper 60s/lower 70s. 
There is a signal in the long range models that if we stay 
relatively dry allowing ground conditions to continue dry and the 
ridge increases in strength, most locations could very well see 
highs in the lower 90s by the end of the week with some middle 90s 
possible as well.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
issued at 618 am EDT sun Aug 30 2015 


A weak front to the west and an approaching system from the south 
will bring scattered showers and storms to the taf sites today. Bwg 
and sdf stand a chance of a shower or storm this morning...but 
greater coverage is expected at all sites this afternoon during peak 
heating and instability. Convection expected to be pop-up...slow 
moving but relatively short lived...waning toward sunset with the 
loss of daytime heating. Outside of thunderstorms...look for 
southerly flow 7 to 10 kts for most of today. Light fog is possible 
again late tonight into early Monday morning at bwg and Lex.
