NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
723 PM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through Sunday night)... 
issued at 314 PM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


..areas of fog, patchy dense across south central Kentucky tonight... 


A weakly defined surface boundary will move through the area over 
the next few hours, with little more than a wind shift for sensible 
weather. Otherwise, skies will rapidly clear across our east, 
yielding a pleasant evening. Highs have made their way into the 
upper 60s and low 70s, however still expect to see mostly low and 
mid 70s through the late afternoon and under mostly full sun. 


Surface high pressure will gradually settle over the area tonight, 
with the center settling over the lower Wabash River valley by dawn. 
The clear skies, calm winds, and relatively high dew points 
(compared to last night) across south central Kentucky are expected 
to lead to areas o fog formation, patchy dense. Will issue a Special 
Weather Statement to highlight south of a line from just north of 
Bowling Green to just south of Madison, Kentucky toward dawn. Stay up to 
date for possible upgrades to a dense fog advisory. 


Sunny skies and light and variable winds will continue into Sunday, 
with the surface high pressure shifting over region. Still expecting 
warm temperatures, however have backed of a few degrees for Max ts 
as data supports readings more in the low and mid 70s. 


Shortwave ridging will remain in place Sunday night, with surface 
high pressure shunted to the east. This will give US some light 
return southerly flow, keeping things mixed and mild across our 
western counties. Low should only drop into the mid and upper 50s. 
Further east, cooler temps will be possible under the more decoupled 
and drier regime. Look for mostly low 50s, with a few upper 40s 
possible in the coolest spots. 


Long term (monday through saturday)... 
issued at 305 PM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


The synoptic pattern at the start of the long term period will 
feature an amplified ridge over the east-central conus, including 
the Ohio Valley, with an upstream trough across the Central Plains. 
This trough will build into the Ohio Valley through the long term 
period, bringing much cooler temperatures for the end of next week. 


Monday is shaping up to be a gorgeous late October day, especially 
for those who like warmth. 850mb temperatures will climb to near 
16-17c. Breezy southwest winds in response to a deepening cyclone 
out west will aid in mechanical mixing, which coupled with abundant 
sunshine, should yield near record highs. For now will keep the 
forecast just below record highs, but sdf especially has the 
potential to tie or even exceed their record high. Monday night will 
also be quite warm given increasing cloud cover associated with an 
incoming cold front/upper trough and southwest winds staying up. 
Lows will only fall into the low and mid 60s. Below are the records 
for Monday and Monday night that may be in jeopardy. 


Record Max for Oct 27 record warm low for Oct 28 
Louisville 84 (1940) 64 (1991 and 1984) 
Lexington 87 (1940) 64 (1984) 
Bowling Green 87 (1919) 65 (1984) 
Frankfort 89 (1940) 61 (1899) 


The 25/12z suite of guidance has continued to come in a bit quicker 
with the fropa on Tuesday. Will only slightly trend the forecast 
quicker, as still think this is a scenario where guidance tends to 
bring in a front too quickly. A deepening low, amplified 
upper-level flow, and the trailing end of the cold front typically 
mean they are slow to pass through. With that in mind, looks like 
the bulk of the precipitation will fall Tuesday afternoon into 
Tuesday evening. With the quicker timing, it does appear that some 
modest SBCAPE (around 500-1000 j/kg) will develop within a thin 
moisture axis ahead of the front. Given shear of 40-50 knots, 
cannot rule out a stronger cell or two on the leading edge of the 
line capable of some gusty winds. But with the better dynamics 
passing well north, the front will not be deeply forced which should 
help to limit overall updraft intensity. Precipitation amounts will 
range from a quarter to a half of an inch. 


Cool weather will move in behind the front for the remainder of the 
week. Temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday will fall into the 60s 
and upper 50s for highs. 


Guidance continues to suggest a pretty good blast of cold air slated 
for Friday into next weekend. A reinforcing pv anomaly will dive 
through the trough aloft, driving another cold front through the 
region on Friday. There could be a few showers with this front, but 
the main story will be the cold air behind it. Despite being just 
outside the scope of this official forecast, highs next weekend may 
not get out of the 40s, with overnight lows in the 30s or even upper 
20s. Certainly a pattern change to watch over the coming days.

Aviation (00z taf update)... 
updated at 715 PM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


A weak boundary lies across southern Indiana, and a wedge of higher 
(upper 50s/near 60) dewpoints has punched up into Kentucky. The 
boundary will push south and east across Kentucky tonight, but the 
push of cooler and drier air is weak at best, so the fog forecast 
will be challenging, especially in bwg. 


The front will hang up somewhere over south-central Kentucky, but 
temps will still easily cross over afternoon dewpoints. This is 
usually a recipe for fog and the usually pessimistic NAM MOS is 
hitting it hard. However, the GFS MOS is not on board and even the 
raw NAM data show a 20 kt northerly jet at 950mb around 09z. This 
would favor lifting it into a stratus deck. Jetting weakens by 12z, 
so can't rule out a brief drop in visibilities. For now will go with 
prevailing MVFR visibilities, with a tempo for cig/vis below field 
mins. 


Low-level winds behind the boundary will be strong enough to inhibit 
any fog formation in sdf and Lex, in spite of otherwise favorable 
radiational cooling conditions and a decent amount trapped surface 
moisture. 


Clear skies and light and variable winds will rule Sunday with weak 
high pressure over the area.
