Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
450 PM EST Thu Nov 27 2014 


..forecast update... 
Issued at 440 PM EST Thu Nov 27 2014 


Updated the forecast to add scattered flurries through the evening 
hours. Regional radar showed a batch of flurries over southwest 
Indiana headed east-southeast into our region. Also, there was another batch 
of flurries near Cincinnati and into the northern Bluegrass. Thus, 
added the flurry mention through 2z. 


Short term (now through Friday night)... 
issued at 255 PM EST Thu Nov 27 2014 


Deep and cyclonically curved northwest flow has set up over the Ohio Valley 
as the departing clipper gives way to a 1036mb Arctic high building 
from the upper Midwest. This setup has kept our weather cloudy and 
somewhat raw, with unseasonably cool temps and modest northwest breezes. 
Surface obs over central Illinois and Indiana have shown light snow 
off and on, but the precip on radar has diminished substantially 
over the last couple hours. 


Some hint of a weak disturbance in the northwest flow aloft making its way 
across Illinois, and this could be responsible for the snow in that 
area. This feature is becoming more sheared out, so at this point 
expecting even any flurries to remain to our north and east as it 
scoots past this evening. Should be a window of clearing for much 
the overnight period, allowing temps to get quite cold before a 
mid-level deck works in around daybreak. Normally would lean toward 
the warmer end of guidance, but since we are already starting off so 
cold, will split the difference with lower/mid 20s in most 
locations. Traditional cold spots will likely dip into the teens. 


By midday Friday the ridge axis will already be retreating into 
eastern Kentucky, but return flow looks quite weak. Mid-level 
moisture and associated clouds will hold temps back as well, 
especially across the Bluegrass region. Should see the most 
substantial moderating trend over south-central Kentucky. Will Open 
A range from upper 30s in the Bluegrass to mid/upper 40s near 
Bowling Green. Moderating trend continues Fri night as south-southwest return 
flow keeps temps up. Will even see a slight non-diurnal trend with a 
quick evening drop, then flatline or even rising temps after 
midnight. 


Long term (saturday through thursday)... 
issued at 305 PM EST Thu Nov 27 2014 


Saturday - Monday night... 


The Ohio Valley will be sandwiched between a surface high along the 
Atlantic coast and low moving from the upper Midwest into eastern 
Canada through the weekend. Meanwhile, flow will transition to 
southwesterly aloft. The steady southerly flow will allow for milder 
temperatures, and an initial shallow layer of moisture to pool into 
the area Saturday, gradually increasing in depth through the 
weekend. Meanwhile, a cold front trailing from the northern surface 
low will slowly work into the area. This will set the stage for 
isolated to scattered chances of measurable rain Saturday through 
Sunday, with better chances Sunday night into Monday. Will see 
milder temperatures on Saturday in the low and mid 50s, with Sunday 
into the 60s despite heavy cloud cover. Temperatures will be tricky 
on Monday due to the timing of the slow frontal passage. Will 
mention likely chances for measurable rain on Monday, where a tenth 
to a quarter of an inch seems reasonable. 


A strong surface high begins to push into the area Monday night, 
shunting the front and associated deeper moisture south. Expecting 
pretty cool overnight lows by dawn on Tuesday along and north of 
I-64, however will continue to leave frozen precipitation off The 
Table as deep moisture is expected to be gone by the time colder air 
arrives. 


Tuesday - Thursday... 


Low confidence for this portion of the forecast as models continue 
to diverge greatly on the upper air pattern through mid week. Do 
want to keep the forecast trended toward a drier solution until more 
confidence can be gained. That being said, still need to keep some 
mention Tuesday and Tuesday night mainly across our east where 
lingering low level moisture will be most prevalent and may 
interact with a developing central Continental U.S. Trough. 


Temperatures for Wednesday/Thursday are also low confidence as we 
will either be dealing with a warm sector and steady southerly flow 
beneath an upper ridge, or under the influence of troughing and a 
polar high. Its going to be one or the other, with one solution mild 
and the other quite cold. Prefer to lean toward the warmer solution 
at this time as it has support from its ensemble mean, its parallel 
run, and the naefs.

Aviation (18z taf update)... 
updated at 1220 PM EST Thu Nov 27 2014 


Deep and cyclonically curved northwest flow has developed over the Ohio 
Valley in the wake of the overnight clipper. Low cloud deck has hung 
in all morning, with persistent MVFR ceilings that have just barely 
managed to lift above fuel-alternate thresholds. Expect status quo 
through most of the afternoon with high-end MVFR and northwest winds around 
10 kt. 


After sunset look for winds to diminish and ceilings to scatter out. 
Another impulse will swing through overnight, but impact will be 
minimal as it will only bring in a mid-level ceiling. Light south 
winds and VFR conditions expected on Fri.
