Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
625 PM CDT Wed Apr 23 2014 


Update... 
issued at 621 PM CDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Updated the aviation discussion for the 00z taf issuance.

Short term...(tonight through Friday night) 
issued at 302 PM CDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


The surface high has really held down warming this afternoon, 
despite plenty of sunshine. It will continue to dominate the 
region tonight with relatively light east southeast winds and 
mostly clear skies expected in most locations. Temperatures will 
be tricky, with potential for radiation cooling to drive 
temperatures below guidance. With warm advection aloft, will go 
close to guidance, and let the evening shift monitor for 
potentially cooler temperatures overnight. 


Winds will eventually veer to due south by Thursday afternoon, as 
the surface high finally loosens its grip on the region. The 12z 
NAM and the high-resolution WRF runs have slowed down the arrival 
and progression of the convection through the area Thursday 
afternoon and evening, and they have been followed closely for 
timing. Just about all 12z models have a more intense mid/upper 
trough swinging through the area Thursday evening. This will 
result in greater forcing than expected yesterday, but the quality 
of the low-level moisture and lapse rates aloft are still 
questionable. 


The slightly slower passage of the front will allow a bit more 
time for lower 60s surface dewpoints to reach at least southern 
portions of the area, but surface-based instability will still be 
highly dependent on the forcing to be released. This should result 
in a more linear event, with damaging winds the main concern, but 
a stray brief tornado cannot be ruled out even within the line or 
line segment. 


A supercell or two cannot be ruled out initially as 
the convection develops over southeast Missouri around 21z, and 
there could also be an embedded supercell structure within the 
line or a line segment into the evening. The mid-level storm- 
relative flow will still be rather weak, which would be 
detrimental to the persistence of any supercell structures, and a 
more robust severe weather event. 


Look for scattered to numerous thunderstorms to develop over 
southeast Missouri between 21z and 00z, and then move across the 
remainder of the area as a line or series of line segments 
through 06z. In general, the severe weather threat will weaken as 
it moves eastward through the evening. Any heavy rainfall should 
be short-lived enough to prevent any major flash flooding 
potential with this event. 


Winds will become west or west northwest behind the front and 
remain west or southwest Friday and Friday night. As for 
temperatures, will generally side with the warmer mav guidance for 
highs Thursday and Friday. Leaned toward the milder met guidance 
for lows Thursday night and stayed close to guidance for lows 
Friday night. 


Long term...(saturday through wednesday) 
issued at 302 PM CDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


The extended period will begin with a Sharp Ridge aloft and srly 
boundary layer flow over the pah forecast area. Srly low level flow 
will be on the increase sun as a large, nearly stacked, low pressure 
system approaches from the Central Plains. There will probably be 
enough moisture influx/instability/divergence aloft ahead of the 
system to trigger scattered tstms by Sun afternoon across much of 
the region. The system should progress ewd Sun night, making 
rainfall likely, with perhaps scattered lightning. By Mon, ample 
vertical motion/moisture influx/instability is forecast to continue 
through the day, with the added forcing of a sfc warm front lifting 
nwd through the region, and inducing plentiful tstm activity into 
Mon evening. 


As to the severe weather possibility, at this time, the Med range 
models were in reasonable agreement that there will be robust wind 
shear aloft by daybreak Mon. However, instability is forecast to be 
somewhat limited, and the phasing of best lapse rates and best upper 
jet winds do not appear to be ideal in the pah forecast area, but it 
should be better just to the west. Still, this does not rule out 
some severe tstm development here, especially during Mon afternoon/ 
evening. 


After Monday, the GFS ensemble members began to spread apart a bit 
regarding the placement of the mid level and sfc lows, along with 
the deterministic runs of the Med range models. Tue should yield 
showery conditions with the low pressure system somewhere in the 
vicinity, with lesser quantitative precipitation forecast and still some lightning activity as sfc 
winds finally turn to the NW late in the day. By Wed, if the model 
solutions remain stable, a mid level trof in the nern conus will 
have merged with the low over the pah forecast area, dropping 
heights a significant amount, meaning much cooler temps, and 
continued cloudy, showery conditions through day 7.
