National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky

..forecast update... 
Issued at 920 am EDT Fri Apr 18 2014 


Forecast soundings match up with morning amdar soundings showing a 
thin saturated layer around 6-7 kft, with a strong inversion above 
it and dry air below. Dissipating front remains to our northwest. 
Given the negative factors for precipitation, will remove pops from 
the morning forecast but still keep US mostly cloudy. Temperatures 
still should get up to around 70 for most locations. The pressure 
gradient is nil in the vicinity of this front, so have light and 
variable winds. 


Short term (now through saturday)... 
issued at 325 am EDT Fri Apr 18 2014 


Weakening surface cold front is pushing toward the Wabash River 
early this morning. Area 88-d's are showing a few returns, but 
observations show nothing hitting the ground. The front will slowly 
move eastward later today. In the meantime, mostly cloudy skies 
will continue across the region as a thick veil of mid-high level 
cloudiness remains across the region. The clouds have kept 
temperatures warmer than in previous mornings with National Weather Service observation 
points and Kentucky mesonet stations showing readings generally in 
the lower to middle 40s. The data suggests that we are still seeing 
a little big of a Ridge/Valley split again...but not as dramatic as 
in the last few nights. We expect temperatures to fall a few more 
degrees before sunrise with minimums dropping into the mid-upper 30s 
in the cool spots with lower 40s elsewhere. 


For today, the latest model guidance continues to trend drier with 
the front crossing the region today. The underlying cause of the 
drier solutions is the rapidly developing upper cut-off low 
developing across northern Gulf. This feature will tend to keep all 
the moisture well to our south. Have trimmed back pops a bit more, 
especially across the north. Still think a stray shower may 
transverse our southern counties, but overall most areas will remain 
dry today. Clouds will keep temperatures down slightly with highs 
topping out in the upper 60s to around 70. 


For tonight and Saturday, upper level cut off low across the southeast US 
will continue to slowly work eastward. Drier influx of air will 
push in tonight and into Saturday which will bring increasingly 
clear skies tonight and mostly sunny conditions for Saturday. Lows 
tonight will cool into the lower to middle 40s with highs on 
Saturday warming into the 70-75 degree range. 


Long term (saturday night through thursday)... 
issued at 302 am EDT Fri Apr 18 2014 


The synoptic pattern at the start of the long term period will 
feature split flow across the Ohio Valley. However, this will 
transition to more of a western trough/eastern ridge upper-level 
regime towards the end of the long term period, meaning warmer 
temperatures are likely through the long term period. 


Easter Sunday is shaping out to be a very pleasant day across the 
region, perfect for hunting eggs and enjoying the outdoors. 
Temperatures will rise into the middle and upper 70s (perhaps 
flirting with 80 in a few locations) under mostly sunny skies. 
Winds will be rather light as well, as a surface ridge slides 
through the Ohio Valley. 


A weak pv anomaly and associated surface cold front will slide 
toward the region Monday into Tuesday. Have taken a bit of a model 
blend to handle this system. Think the European model (ecmwf) is a bit too 
aggressive with the precip arrival on Monday, as it tries to develop 
some convection well ahead of the surface front within the warm 
conveyor belt. Given the general lack of low-level moisture with 
this system due to high pressure over the northern Gulf, and the 
indication of a weak cap in the forecast soundings, think the 
majority of Monday will likely stay dry. So, will side with the GFS 
and lean toward a later arrival to the precipitation, and only keep 
slight chance/chance wording in for Monday. Coverage looks to 
increase a bit overnight Monday into early Tuesday as the cold front 
and trough swing through. Think the GFS is too aggressive in this 
timeframe with quantitative precipitation forecast given the general lack of deep moisture and 
forcing for ascent, so have sided more toward the European model (ecmwf) for quantitative precipitation forecast 
Monday night. 


The showers and isolated thunderstorms will push east by late 
Tuesday afternoon, allowing things to dry out through at least 
Thursday. Temperatures Tuesday behind the front will be slightly 
cooler, in the low to middle 70s, but should moderate back into the 
upper 70s by Thursday. 


The ecwmf tries to bring the next system into the Ohio Valley 
Thursday night into Friday. However, with the upper-level flow 
undergoing amplification, think the European model (ecmwf) is likely too quick with 
this feature. With this reasoning, have kept Thursday night dry and 
limited pops to 20% on Friday.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
issued at 650 am EDT Fri Apr 18 2014 


A weak surface front will move through the region today. The lack 
of forcing should result in mainly cloudy and dry conditions. A few 
isolated showers may pass near the kbwg terminal, but such isolated 
nature precludes a mention in the taf at this time. VFR conditions 
are expected through the period with mainly light and variable 
winds. Expect a clearing of skies after 19/00z with VFR conditions 
continuing through the remainder of the forecast period.
