Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 9:29 PM EDT on April 22, 2014


... Patchy frost Wednesday morning and elevated fire danger
Wednesday afternoon and early evening...

Temperatures are expected to drop into the mid 30s during the pre-
dawn hours Wednesday morning. These cold temperatures combined with
light winds and shallow low level moisture may result in patchy frost
in sheltered locations and typical cold spots just before sunrise
Wednesday morning.

The combination of dry air... steady north winds... and dry small
fuels will lead to an increased wildfire danger Wednesday.
Relative humidity values are expected to drop into the mid 20
percent range Wednesday afternoon and remain low through early
Wednesday evening before recovering. Use extreme caution if
burning outdoors Wednesday afternoon and early evening... or
perhaps consider another time to burn if possible.

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky

..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through Wednesday night)... 
issued at 310 PM EDT Tue Apr 22 2014 


A cold front has passed through the region today. Behind it, we can 
expect gusty northerly winds (up to 25 mph) late this afternoon and 
early evening with winds declining after sunset. 


Skies should clear this evening as a drier, colder airmass works 
into the region under sfc high pressure. A decent rad cooling night 
looks to be in store although winds will stay slightly elevated 
aloft with 3-8 mph northerly sfc winds which will limit the cooling 
somewhat. Still overnight temps look to be quite chilly for this 
time of year dipping into the upper 30s and lower 40s. Sheltered 
locations and typical cool spots in the Bluegrass region may reach 
the mid 30s with patchy frost formation possible. Thus, will 
mention in an Special Weather Statement the patchy frost potential. 


Perhaps of greater concern will be an enhanced wildfire danger for 
Wednesday afternoon. Dry air aloft looks to mix down to the sfc 
resulting in relative humidity values dropping into the mid 20 
percent range. Already dry ground fuels (5-8%) combined with low 
humidity values will pose a risk for any fires to rapidly spread out 
of control. North-northeast winds will remain fairly tame in the 5-10 mph. 
Still, think that an Special Weather Statement mention for enhanced wildfire danger is in 
order for tomorrow afternoon/early evening. 


Other than that, tomorrow looks to be mostly sunny with high 
temperatures ranging throughout the 60s. 


Wed night dry conditions will continue with upper level clouds 
increasing. Low temperatures will rebound into the 40s as ridging 
and warmer air arrives. 


Long term (thursday through tuesday)... 
issued at 317 PM EDT Tue Apr 22 2014 


This period begins dry as the aforementioned surface high moves off 
toward the eastern Seaboard and upper-level ridging across the south 
moves along with it. By late Thursday night into early Friday, a 
trough scooting across the Midwest and its associated surface 
boundary quickly traverses through with models generally agreeing 
that the precip will have exited by midday Friday. The European model (ecmwf) is the 
outlier for pops Friday as it's a bit slower clearing central 
Kentucky and southern Indiana out. However the timing ends up 
playing out, once the precip exits off to the east on Friday, expect 
one more round of dry conditions through the middle of the 
weekend. 


As mentioned in the previous forecast, Sunday Onward looks 
to be rather unsettled as an upper low spins across the center of 
the country. At the surface, a stalled frontal boundary is depicted 
on the 12z GFS and European model (ecmwf) to drape just north of the forecast area, 
oriented east-west across the center of Indiana. Meanwhile, a 
surface low associated with the upper low deepens and seemingly 
wants to ride the track of where the boundary lays out late Monday 
night through Tuesday. While the 12z European model (ecmwf) has come into better 
agreement with the 12z GFS, there are still noticeable differences 
temporally and spatially when considering how this system will 
evolve. Therefore, have kept just chance pops from Sunday through 
Tuesday until we get closer to that time frame and can grab a better 
handle. It likely won't rain during the entire time frame but since 
we are approaching an unsettled weather pattern that won't be 
arriving until at least 5 days from today, the uncertainties force 
pop wording during the 12-hour time periods for early next week. 
Given face value of the 12z model runs, late Monday through Tuesday 
look to have the highest chances at this time. With respect to 
thunder possibilities, model soundings point toward the same time 
frame of late Monday through Tuesday and have indicated as such in 
this forecast update. 


Temperatures to start the long-term will be near to slightly above 
normal with afternoon highs ranging from the mid to upper 70s on 
Thursday through Saturday. The corresponding low temps will respond 
similarly with mid to upper 50s Thursday night, lower 50s Friday 
night, and then upper 40s across the north and lower 50s across the 
south Saturday night. The temperature forecast then gets a bit more 
tricky as cloud cover and precip could certainly play havoc until 
the real airmass change comes through in the middle of next week. 
Generally speaking though, cooler temps can be anticipated from 
Sunday Onward, especially as that upper low approaches the region.

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
issued at 1245 am EDT Wed Apr 23 2014 


Still a decent northerly gradient across central Kentucky as of 04z, 
keeping winds up around 10 kt. Expect the winds to diminish to 6 kt 
or less within the next 2-3 hrs, with light north-NE winds and clear 
skies continuing through at least late afternoon as high pressure 
ridges into the area from the Great Lakes. Warm advection ahead of 
the next system could bring in a mid-level ceiling late Wednesday 
evening, but believe it will be late enough that it was only worthy 
of inclusion at sdf.
