Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 6:48 PM CDT on July 30, 2014


... Thursday is National heat stroke awareness day...

Heat is one of the leading weather-related killers in the United
States, resulting in hundreds of fatalities each year. In the
disastrous heat wave of 1980, more than 1250 people died. In the
heat wave of 1995, more than 700 deaths in the Chicago area were
attributed to heat, making this the deadliest weather event in
Chicago history.

North American Summers are typically hot. Even though this Summer
has been cooler than normal across a large portion of the eastern
United States, several days have still been hot enough to pose a
hazard.

(1.) The Hazards of excessive heat

During extremely hot and humid weather, the body's ability to cool
itself is affected. When the body heats too rapidly to cool itself
properly, or when too much fluid or salt is lost through dehydration
or sweating, body temperature rises and heat-related illnesses may
develop.

Heat-related illnesses can range from heat cramps to heat exhaustion
to more serious heat stroke. Heat stroke can result in death and
requires immediate medical attention.

Factors or conditions that can make some people more susceptible to
heat-related illnesses include age (young children and the elderly),
obesity, fever, heart disease, mental illness, poor circulation,
prescription drug and alcohol use, and sunburn. Sunburn, caused by
ultraviolet radiation from the sun, can significantly retard the
skin's ability to shed excess heat.

(2.) Recognizing the symptoms of heat stroke

Heat stroke is a severe medical emergency that can be fatal if not
recognized and treated promptly.

Symptoms of heat stroke include:

* altered or confused mental state
* possible throbbing headache, confusion, nausea, dizziness, and
   shallow breathing
* high body temperature (106 degrees fahrenheit or higher)
* skin may be hot and dry, or patient may be sweating
* rapid pulse
* possible unconsciousness

To assist a victim of heat stroke:

* move the victim to a cooler, preferably air-conditioned,
   environment.
* Reduce body temperature with a water mister and fan or by sponging.
* Use a fan if heat index temperatures are below the upper 90s.
* If temperature rises again, repeat the above process.
* Do not give fluids.

Tomorrow, we will discuss how quickly the sun can heat a vehicle. We
will also review measures on how to keep children safe from heat
exposure.

Service heat safety awareness Page at: www.NWS.NOAA.Gov/os/heat.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
642 PM CDT Wed Jul 30 2014 


Update... 
issued at 642 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


Revised aviation discussion for 00z tafs. 


&& 


Short term...(tonight through Friday night) 
issued at 112 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


A nice slug of moisture was overrunning the surface and depicted 
graphically in the 850-700 mb layer. It shows up nicely on visible 
imagery and the radar mosaic even has some shower activity 
associated with it to our west. Model time-height cross sections 
reveal the presence of this moisture in that layer more or less 
through the short term time frame, with the net result being an 
introduction and lingering of some small pops in our forecast. 


A closer examination shows it is tied to some short wave energy 
that is/will be rounding the broader long wave trof, meaning it 
will take a track into/across the lower MS valley, making passage 
by Friday. Highest pops thus will be in our south and west, 
tapering to lowest north and east, with peak pops (still just in 
the chance/scattered category) on its approach/passage, first 
Thursday, with just a lingering slgt chance mention Friday. Loss 
of diurnal fuel at night S/b enuf to preclude nocturnal mention, 
we think. 


Long term...(saturday through tuesday) 
issued at 214 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


The GFS/European model (ecmwf) ensemble means are in decent agreement for this 
forecast package, along with most deterministic guidance. 


At the beginning of the extended forecast period, the axis of the 
prominent mid level shrtwv will be moving to the east of the pah 
forecast area. There may be enough unstable moist air in place 
between 850 and 700 mb, and lift for a few showers and tstms Sat 
afternoon in the pennyrile region of Kentucky and adjacent parts of swrn 
in. After that, high pressure at the sfc is forecast to sink into 
our region, and the mid/upper pattern should become very slack on 
the edge of a persistent ridge over the swrn conus, and capped for 
much of the time, meaning rain-free conditions and a slow warming 
trend through next week, as the sun's energy works on the reasonably 
dry air mass. 


By day 7, a cold front will be on the approach but well to our north 
as nrn stream shrtwv energy begins to change the mid/upper pattern. 
For now, the forecast remains dry. 


&& 


Aviation... 
issued at 642 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


VFR conditions will prevail over the next 24 hours. An upper level 
disturbance will weaken as it shifts southeast from the plains into 
the lower Mississippi Valley. This should keep any rain just south 
of the forecast terminals, though an increase in VFR cloud cover 
will be noted, especially at kcgi and kpah. Winds will remain light.
