Short term (now through Wednesday night)... 
issued at 308 PM EDT Tue Jul 29 2014 


It has been quite pleasant for late July today with current 
temperatures in the low to mid 70s across the region and dewpoints 
in the lower 50s. As of 3 PM the only potential record low maximum 
temperature is at Frankfort. The current temperature there is 72 and 
the record is 74, set in 1994 (and previous years). 


The upper level low will remain in place for the short term period. 
At the surface, high pressure will continue to build in from the 
west tonight. Dewpoints are expected to start rising slowly tonight 
into tomorrow, though they should still only be in the upper 50s to 
lower 60s. We will see good radiational cooling tonight with mostly 
clear skies and light and variable to calm winds. Lows will be a bit 
warmer than last night, dropping into the mid 50s to around 60. Some 
patchy fog may be possible in river valleys tonight. Below are the 
current record and forecast low temperatures for tomorrow. 


Record forecast 


Bowling green: 53, 1965 58 
frankfort: 50, 1965 55 
louisville: 55, 1965 61 
lexington: 51, 1965 58 


Tomorrow will be a few degrees warmer than today with highs in the 
upper 70s to lower 80s expected. As a wave drops through the upper 
level trough it could bring a few showers to the far northern border 
of our forecast area, so added in slight chance pops there. These 
will only last for a few hours in the afternoon. Otherwise, dry 
conditions are expected. Lows tomorrow night will be in the upper 
50s to lower 60s. 


Long term (thursday through tuesday)... 
issued at 253 PM EDT Tue Jul 29 2014 


The synoptic pattern at the start of the long term period will 
feature continued upper-level troughing over the region, which will 
slowly begin to break down through the long term period. This will 
mean a gradual warmup through the extended, as highs climb back 
closer to normal values. 


Much of the long term period will remain dry, except perhaps from 
Friday into Saturday. Another reinforcing shortwave trough will 
dive south into the Ohio Valley, helping to once again carve out the 
upper low over the region. This cold core aloft may be enough to 
spark some mainly diurnally-driven isolated to scattered showers and 
thunderstorms. However, deep moisture will continue to remain 
limited to the southeast, as pwats over the Ohio Valley will only be 
around 1.25 inches. So despite the upper-level support, this lack 
of moisture coupled with a very disorganized surface pressure 
pattern should mean convection will struggle to become too 
widespread. 


As mentioned above, temperatures through the period will slowly 
begin to moderate. Highs in the mid 80s will persist late this week 
into the weekend, before temperature begin to climb back into the 
upper 80s and lower 90s by early next week. Overnight lows will be 
in the low to mid 60s.

Aviation (00z taf update)... 
issued at 646 PM EDT Tue Jul 29 2014 


High pressure building from the plains to the mid-Atlantic will 
provide US with mostly clear/partly cloudy VFR skies and light 
west/northwest breezes. Dew points may bump up a couple of degrees 
tonight so there could be some MVFR br at bwg and Lex around sunrise.
