NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
949 PM EDT Mon Sep 1 2014 


..forecast update... 
Issued at 948 PM EDT Mon Sep 1 2014 


Had a secondary batch of convection that developed a few hours ago 
down around the east-town and Bardstown area. This convection moved 
northeast along the bg Parkway and is now passing east of the I-75 
corridor. A residual outflow boundary exists from near McLean 
County eastward to near Madison County. Expect some additional 
convection to pop along this boundary this evening and into the 
overnight hours. Coverage looks to be isolated-scattered at 
best...mainly south of the bg/weak parkways and north of the 
Cumberland/Nunn Parkway. Will be keeping in a chance showers/storms 
in this area through the evening and into the early overnight 
hours. 


Otherwise, we expect partly cloudy skies to continue across the 
region into the overnight hours. Convection out across Missouri is 
expected to continue eastward and then push into our northwest/west counties 
very late night...perhaps around dawn Tuesday. Thus, will continue 
with the current forecast of low chance pops this evening and then 
let them ramp up from west to east late tonight and tues morning. 
Overnight lows will remain mild with lower 70s expected. 


Short term (now through Tuesday night)... 
issued at 303 PM EDT Mon Sep 1 2014 


A cold front stretching from the Great Lakes to the Red River valley 
will sag southeastward this evening. Tonight a strengthening low 
level jet will impinge on the front as a shortwave trof slides in 
from the northwest. With plenty of moisture available, showers and 
thunderstorms will develop from Oklahoma to Indiana overnight. This 
activity will push into the Ohio Valley by morning. Timing of this 
rainfall is difficult to nail down, but right now it looks like wet 
weather will become widespread across southern Indiana after 
midnight, into the Louisville Metro and Ohio River counties a few 
hours either side of dawn, and into the rest of central Kentucky 
during the day Tuesday. 


Over the course of the day Tuesday showers and thunderstorms will 
remain a good bet. The initiating cold front will be dissipating, 
but enough boundaries and instability will be in the area to 
continue chances of convection. Locally gusty winds will be the 
main threat from any stronger cells. 


Tuesday night any remaining storms in the Lake Cumberland region 
will gradually taper off and/or exit to the southeast. Patchy fog 
looks like a good bet after midnight, though lingering cloud cover 
may put a monkey wrench in that. 


Tonight will be very warm and muggy with lows only in the lower and 
middle 70s. There will be a slight breeze from the south around 5 
to 10 mph, but it will still be uncomfortable for folks without air 
conditioning. 


High temperatures on Tuesday are challenging given the clouds and 
rain in the area, but lower to middle 80s sound about right. 
Tuesday night will be a little cooler behind the front, with 
temperatures dropping into the middle and upper 60s. 


Long term (wednesday through monday)... 
issued at 303 PM EDT Mon Sep 1 2014 


Wednesday through Thursday... 


In the wake of a progressive yet shallow 500mb trough exiting New 
England, ridging will build northwards over the Tennessee and Ohio 
valleys from Wednesday through late Friday. As upper heights build, 
expect a warm and humid period that will feel a lot like mid Summer. 
With the storm track well north across the upper Midwest, rain 
chances will stay sparse with just isolated afternoon and evening 
convection at best. Despite recent ample rains, highs will still 
approach or just exceed 90 degrees. Expect warm muggy nights with 
lows near or just above 70. 


Friday through Monday... 


A shallow progressive upper trough will move across the northern 
Great Lakes Saturday into early Sunday. In the wake of this system 
surface high pressure of Canadian origin will sink southwards across 
the upper Midwest and eventually the Northern Ohio valley. Ahead of 
this though, an elongated cold front will slowly sag southwards 
through Illinois and Indiana late Friday, possibly crossing the 
commonwealth by early Sunday. This boundary, which will run roughly 
parallel to the mid-level flow will be slow moving. One or more 
rounds of convection will accompany this boundary due to pre-frontal 
convergence and moist air. Friday night and Saturday will provide 
the best chance for storms based on a compromise on the speed of 
this front. Some showers may linger Sunday morning across our 
southern counties, however, by afternoon cooler and distinctly drier 
air will arrive from the north. Friday's highs will approach 90, 
with highs only in the mid-80s for an expected mostly cloudy 
Saturday. Sunday will become much less humid with clearing and a 
high only in the upper 70s to around 80. 


High pressure will become centered over the Great Lakes on Monday, 
with northeast winds expected across the commonwealth. With mostly 
clear skies expected after morning lows possibly in the 50s, highs 
will reach the upper 70s to around 80.

Aviation (00z taf update)... 
issued at 707 PM EDT Mon Sep 1 2014 


Scattered showers with continue to move northeastward across 
southern Indiana and portions of northern Kentucky this evening. 
Best chances of seeing any shower activity would be at ksdf through 
about 02/03z. Will continue to monitor ksdf closely this evening 
and amend if necessary. Elsewhere at kbwg and klex, expect VFR 
conditions at those terminals. Winds will remain out of the 
southwest this evening at 5-10 knots. Winds are expected to drop 
below 6 knots after 02/03z at all the terminals. 


Surface cold front is still expected to approach the region late 
tonight. Late afternoon model solutions suggest convective activity 
upstream in western Missouri will continue to develop and then 
spread eastward toward southern Illinois and western Kentucky late tonight. 
Expect showers and possible storms to re-enter the kbwg and ksdf 
terminals after 02/10z and then into klex after 02/12z. These times 
may need to be bumped up in subsequent forecasts as we see 
convective evolution take place out to our west.
