Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
332 am CST sun Dec 21 2014 


Short term...(today through Tuesday night) 
issued at 332 am CST sun Dec 21 2014 


Strong jet energy coming into the Pacific northwest early this 
morning will quickly form a occluded storm system over the 
northern plains and upper Midwest by 12z Monday. This system will 
then wobble eastward while more energy drops southward along The 
Rockies through Monday night. This energy will bottom out along 
the Rio Grande in Texas, carving out an intense full latitude 
trough by 00z Wednesday. 


While the 00z GFS, European model (ecmwf) and NAM all show this same evolution 
there are differences in the finer details. With multiple systems 
within the larger-scale trough, it is unrealistic to expect the 
models to be locked in at this point. Interactions between the 2 
systems will have a significant impact on the cold frontal 
movement, which will be the focus for best pops in our region. 


With the original occluded system, the cold front will be ill- 
defined, and really not much of a factor through Monday night. It 
should sharpen up, as low pressure rides northeast toward the area 
Tuesday, once the secondary jet energy bottoms out. We should have 
general warm, moist advection in the low-levels beginning late 
tonight and continuing until the cold front moves through the 
region presumably sometime Tuesday. 


It looks like light rain or drizzle with a saturated near surface 
layer will be the primary precipitation Mode Monday and Monday 
night. Chance pops on Monday may be more realistic for Monday 
night, too, compared to the likelies that are forecast. With the 
delayed frontal passage, there will be more time for moisture to 
increase across the area, so increased pops to categorical levels 
in the east Tuesday. 


The 00z NAM actually develops an environment supportive of qlcs-type 
tornadic activity, according to a local research project, mainly 
over west Kentucky very late Monday night and into Tuesday. 
Precipitable water values around 1.25" are near the 99th 
percentile with respect to climatology, and 0-1km and 0-6km bulk 
shear values of 40kts and 65kts, respectively, would be 
supportive, if elevated instability can develop. The 00z NAM did 
have 200-300j/kg of MUCAPE which could be enough given the shear. 


This is one run of one model, and others are not as moist or 
unstable, so there is no need to get too excited at this time. We 
just need be conscious of the possibilities, as it approaches. For 
now will add thunder to the eastern third of the area Tuesday. 


Long term...(tuesday night through saturday) 
issued at 332 am CST sun Dec 21 2014 


The primary feature of interest in the long term period is still the 
storm system that will exit our region on Christmas eve. While all 
models agree that colder air will arrive Tuesday night and 
Wednesday, they differ on the timing of the ending of precipitation. 
If the precipitation lingers into Wednesday evening as the 00z GFS 
indicates, there is a small potential for minor snow accumulations 
on Christmas eve. This appears unlikely, but there has been too much 
model variability to rule it out. 


The differences in the models revolve around their handling of 
individual 500 mb shortwaves rotating through the high-amplitude 
trough. The deep trough will extend from the western Great Lakes to 
northeast Mexico Tuesday night. Various past runs of the GFS have 
separated out two shortwaves within the large-scale trough. The 
shortwave of interest digs south into Texas Tuesday night, then 
lifts northeast across the lower Ohio Valley on Christmas eve. The 
GFS develops a secondary area of precipitation with this mid-level 
low, which lingers long enough for a changeover to wet snow before 
ending Wednesday afternoon/evening. 


The 00z ECMWF does not show the 500 mb shortwave indicated by the 
GFS. The result is a faster end to the precipitation and faster 
arrival of cold air late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, but no 
measurable snow. The GFS is slower with the arrival of colder air in 
the lower levels. Even if precipitation lingers as long as the GFS 
indicates, the changeover to snow across most of the area would be 
too late for any appreciable accumulation. The possible exception 
would be in far northwest counties along and northwest of a kcgi to 
kmvn line, mainly on Wednesday. The 00z NAM does seem to support the 
00z GFS. 


All the precipitation will exit our region Wednesday night, followed 
by high pressure Christmas morning. The high will move quickly east, 
causing winds to become southerly on Christmas afternoon and night. 
Temperatures will recover into the 40s on Christmas after a cold 
start to the day. The ECMWF has been indicating highs in the 50s on 
Christmas, but it is a warmer outlier. 


Another cold front will move southeast across the lower Ohio Valley 
on Friday afternoon and evening. This front will be starved for 
moisture, and upper-level troughing will be much weaker with this 
system. Therefore, pops and qpf will be much lower with this system. 
Only slight chance pops are forecast in parts of southern Illinois and 
southeast MO. 


Colder high pressure will arrive on Saturday, with highs struggling 
to reach 40.

Aviation... 
issued at 532 PM CST Sat Dec 20 2014 


Although a little westward progression of the cloud cover may 
still clear out things for kcgi, the late day clearing for this 
area appears to have stopped for now and a resumption of upper 
MVFR ceilings will likely stay in place for the forecast period. 
There is even a period after midnight that light drizzle may be an 
issue. 


Otherwise, VFR conditions should persist for the kpah, kevv, kowb 
taf sites through the end of the forecast period under light 
southeast winds. Some diurnally induced MVFR ceilings was briefly 
included during the morning hours at kpah.
