Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
727 PM EDT Mon Jul 6 2015 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through Tuesday night)... 
issued at 325 PM EDT Mon Jul 6 2015 


Late this afternoon, satellite imagery indicated cu to our west 
trying to grow upscale but largely being inhibited by ridging over 
the Ohio Valley. Still can't rule out a stray shower/storm along 
and west of I-65 this evening as peak instability is reached and the 
ridge continues to gradually shift east, thus, will continue 20% 
precip chances. 


A cold front will approach the area tonight and tomorrow. 
Precipitation should stay mainly to our west overnight with the 
cloud shield from convection along the front overspreading our 
region after midnight. Although the atmosphere should largely stay 
too mixy for fog formation, think that some light patchy fog may be 
possible over east central Kentucky late tonight into tomorrow morning. 
Lows should reach the upper 60s to lower 70s tonight. 


For tomorrow, isolated to scattered showers and storms are expected 
in the morning with convection becoming more numerous during the 
afternoon hours as the front draws near and storms tap into 
afternoon instability. Soundings indicate that initially storms 
could be strong to severe with damaging winds the main threat. 
Storm Mode will be mainly multicell clusters throughout the 
afternoon and evening hours. If we get morning convection or a lot 
of cloud cover early in the day, afternoon instability may suffer to 
reach projected values and thus limit storm strength. Will need to 
fine tune convective coverage and strength as event evolution 
becomes more clear over the next 12-18 hrs. Either way, multiple 
rounds of showers and storms are expected from tues afternoon and 
through the overnight hours tues night. Precipitable water values 
climb to 2-2.25 inches tues evening and overnight which points to 
more heavy rainers for the region. The latest short range models 
indicate that southern in/northern Kentucky may be susceptible to the most 
convection tues/tues night and thus heavier rainfall totals. 
Although the area has had time to recover from recent rains and 
flash flood guidance has improved, think that locations that receive 
multiple rounds of storms may see some minor flooding problems by 
late tues night into Wed. 


Temps tues should be limited to the mid to upper 80s. Lows tues 
night should range through the upper 60s and lower 70s and may be 
tricky depending on how far southeast the cold front makes it. 


Long term (wednesday through monday)... 
issued at 300 PM EDT Mon Jul 6 2015 


The long term period will begin with zonal flow aloft over the lower 
Ohio Valley. Ridging will begin to build in from the south by the 
end of the week and really amplify across the region this weekend. 
At the surface a stalled frontal boundary will be in place Wednesday 
across the forecast area. This will eventually lift back to the 
north as ridging builds in. 


Wednesday and Thursday will both see isolated to scattered storms as 
a couple of wave ride along the stalled front. The focus for 
activity looks to be across the northern half of the region. South 
central Kentucky will likely be mostly dry, but have kept isolated storm 
chances during the day as outflow boundaries could serve as a focus 
for storms during peak heating. 


As the upper level ridge builds across the region any chances for 
storms will shift off to the northeast. Mostly dry conditions are 
expected this weekend. However, portions of southern in and the 
northern Bluegrass could see a few storms as disturbances round the 
edge of the ridge. 


In addition to drier conditions, temperatures will warm with the 
ridge building in. Highs Friday through Sunday will top out in the 
lower 90s in many locations. Combined with dewpoints in the lower 
70s, heat index values will rise to near 100 each afternoon. Lows 
through this time period will be in the lower 70s.

Aviation (00z taf update)... 
issued at 727 PM EDT Mon Jul 6 2015 


Isolated shower activity has developed across western KY, however is 
expected to diminish in coverage with the loss of daytime heating. 
So, will leave mention out of bwg and sdf for the evening hours. 
Expect VFR conditions to prevail through the evening with a steady 
SW wind between 5 and 10 mph and few-sct cu around 4-5 k feet. A few 
upper clouds will also stream overhead. 


There is some concern for some MVFR fog overnight, however 
confidence is lower than normal given degree of upper sky cover and 
magnitude of low level winds. Will hint at some vis restrictions 
toward dawn, but won't go prevailing MVFR at this time. 


A warm advection regime will get more established toward dawn and 
into the day on Tuesday. Along with increasing SW winds, chances for 
scattered showers will increase around sunrise so will include vcsh 
mention. By afternoon, scattered to numerous showers are expected to 
affect sdf/Lex ahead of a cold front so will mention -shra and thunderstorms in the vicinity.
