Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 323 PM EDT Thu Oct 23 2014 Short term (now through Friday night)... issued at 307 PM EDT Thu Oct 23 2014 Latest water vapor imagery overlaid with 500 mb heights shows ridging across the Ohio Valley with a weak shortwave trough moving through the mid-Mississippi Valley. At the surface, high pressure is centered across Kentucky/Ohio with mostly sunny skies and seasonably cool temperatures this afternoon. The aforementioned shortwave trough will swing through the area this evening through Friday morning, bringing an increase in mid/high level clouds. 23.12z guidance remains consistent with previous forecast runs showing that as this system approaches, the very dry mid and low levels will keep precipitation threat at a minimum. Looking at hi-res models, some show hint of light rain or sprinkles moving in from the northwest overnight, but expecting this to be mainly virga. Kept previous dry forecast going for the area but could not rule out a sprinkle or two early Friday morning, especially across the northern and eastern forecast area. Despite the increased cloud cover tonight, lows look to range from the lower to middle 40s. The upper level pattern on Friday becomes more northwesterly in the wake of the shortwave trough. Plan on morning high clouds to give way to mostly sunny skies by afternoon with seasonable temperatures. The overall airmass will slowly moderate and this should allow temperatures to climb a few degrees higher compared to today. 850 mb temps rise from +8c to around +10c which supports highs in the middle to upper 60s. Overall another pleasant October day for the region. Long term (saturday through thursday)... issued at 256 PM EDT Thu Oct 23 2014 The long term will begin with northwesterly flow aloft and a weak front moving through the area. This frontal passage should be dry with just an increase in clouds expected. Behind the front high pressure will build in at the surface and weak ridging will build in aloft. Highs through the weekend will range from the upper 60s across the Bluegrass to the mid 70s around the Bowling Green area. Lows will warm from the mid and upper 40s Sunday morning to the lower 50s Monday morning. High pressure will shift off to the east Monday and a low pressure system will approach from the west. Southerly winds will usher in warmer air. Highs on Monday look quite warm, topping out in the upper 70s to around 80. Lows will be on the warmer side as well on Tuesday morning, only dropping into the upper 50s to lower 60s. The aforementioned low pressure system will continue to move off to the northeast through midweek, swinging a cold front through the area. The models are in much better agreement with timing today. The best chance for rain and a few thunderstorms looks to be Tuesday night across the region, so have bumped up pops to 50-60% for this time frame. Showers will continue across east central Kentucky Wednesday morning as the front begins to slow. There may be a few showers in the Lake Cumberland region Wednesday night if the front stalls near the Kentucky/Tennessee border as well. Temperatures Tuesday will remain quite warm, though with cloud cover and precipitation moving in they are not expected to be as high as Monday. Highs should top out in the lower to mid 70s. Wednesday will be some 10 degrees cooler behind the front. && Aviation (18z taf update)... updated at 115 PM EDT Thu Oct 23 2014 High pressure at the surface will remain across the Ohio River valley through the period, while an upper level shortwave trough begins to move in from the west tonight. This system will spread high level clouds eastward over the taf sites later this evening and through the overnight hours. Main forecast challenge is fog development at bwg and Lex overnight. Soundings show a very deep light wind layer up to 5-6 kft with near saturation and calm winds at the surface. However, there should be a scattered/broken high level cloud deck remaining across central Kentucky. Forecast guidance shows visibility restrictions developing and various hi-res model forecasts also suggest the possibility for fog. For now, included a MVFR group at bwg/Lex and kept sdf VFR with the idea that the cloud cover will preclude extensive fog development. Otherwise, light/variable winds Friday morning will become westerly to northwesterly late in the period as a weak front passes through. VFR conditions expected Friday after any morning fog Burns off. && Lmk watches/warnings/advisories... Kentucky...none.
