NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
725 PM CDT sun may 24 2015 


Update... 
issued at 720 PM CDT sun may 24 2015 


We decided to extend the lake Wind Advisory through at least the 
evening hours. Contrary to what we normally experience during the 
boating season...winds are expected to remain elevated through at 
least the evening as low pressure over Missouri keeps a strong 
gradient in place. Winds around 15 miles per hour are expected with some 
gusts of 20 to 25 miles per hour. Also weighing on our decision is the 
Holiday weekend and associated recreational boating activities. 


&& 


Short term...(tonight through Tuesday night) 
issued at 310 PM CDT sun may 24 2015 


Abundant sunshine this afternoon resulted in warmer temperatures and more 
mixing than indicated by most of the models. The mixing down of 
stronger winds prompted the issuance of a lake Wind 
Advisory...which will expire early this evening. Even though the 
low levels have warmed and moistened...instability is still weak 
due to marginal middle level lapse rates. Nothing more than isolated 
showers have developed so far this afternoon...and these are 
confined to the Ozark foothills. 


Showers and storms will increase in coverage and intensity over 
the next several hours as a 500 mb shortwave moves northeast from 
the Southern Plains. Deep-layer wind fields will increase...with 
40 to 50 knots of nearly Uni-directional flow from 925 to 500 mb 
later this evening. As noted by Storm Prediction Center...this is more than sufficient 
for locally damaging winds and/or rotation in discrete cells or 
bowing line segments. However...instability will be on the wane 
after dark...when most of the activity will cross our area. The 
highest potential of any isolated severe weather appears to be 
over southeast Missouri later this afternoon and early this evening. The 
activity will gradually spread across the remainder of the region 
tonight...with a slow weakening trend expected. 


On Monday...the 500 mb shortwave will reach the Great Lakes region 
by early afternoon. The coverage of precipitation will diminish in the 
morning as the shortwave departs. It will remain rather warm and 
humid...and yet another shortwave will be moving northeast from 
the Southern Plains by evening. Therefore...isolated to 
scattered showers and storms may occur in the afternoon. 


Showers and storms will increase Monday night as the 500 mb 
shortwave continues northeast...approaching the lower Ohio Valley 
at 12z Tuesday. Wind fields will be considerably weaker with this 
system. Heavy rainfall appears to be the primary concern. Precipitation 
will diminish Tuesday afternoon and evening as the system moves 
into the Great Lakes region. 


Total rainfall through Tuesday will be locally heavy. The heaviest 
rainfall from both shortwaves is expected over southeast Missouri...where 
one to two inches is forecast in each event. Depending on how much 
falls tonight...the second event Monday night into Tuesday may 
warrant some flooding concerns there. 


Long term...(wednesday through sunday) 
issued at 310 PM CDT sun may 24 2015 


It still looks like a warm and humid second half of the work week to 
come...followed by a wet weekend. 


The models seem to focus thunderstorm development across the 
northern half of the region Wednesday afternoon. This appears to be 
focused along a remnant frontal boundary connecting the recently 
departed system to a new warm front developing over the plains. Went 
with better chances up there due to the persistence of this signal. 
Otherwise...isolated to scattered diurnal activity will be possible 
through Friday. The flow will be weak throughout the last half of 
the work week...so locally heavy rainfall and lightning will be the 
primary concerns. 


Temperatures will start out a few degrees above normal on Wednesday 
and then climb at least into middle 80s Thursday and Friday. 
Guidance has this captured well...so no need to deviate from it. The 
humidity may push heat indices up near 90 by Friday afternoon. 


Heading into next weekend...coverage of showers and thunderstorms 
should be greater...as a cold front and upper-level storm system 
approach from the northwest. Best guess at a cold frontal passage 
would be sometime Sunday. The flow aloft will still be rather 
weak...so the severe threat next weekend seems minimal at this time. 
Temperatures will be highly dependent on convection and related 
cloud cover. Figure highs will trend down toward 80 over much of the 
area by Sunday. 


&& 


Aviation... 
issued at 521 PM CDT sun may 24 2015 


Diurnally enhanced cumulus may include vicinity thunderstorms and rain...particularly 
west (kcgi/kpah)..but after loss of fuel...should see low VFR 
clouds prevail mostly. Further upstream...an area of 
showers/storms will move in later tonight...hitting kcgi/kpah and 
then expanding northward and eastward with a chance for kevv/kowb. 
MVFR ceilings/visibilities possible with this passage...after which we should 
see generally improving conditions tmrw PM.
