NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
342 am CDT Wed Apr 16 2014 


Short term...(today through friday) 
issued at 341 am CDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Early morning ASOS/AWOS observations from local airports indicated 
temperatures were close to freezing across much of the forecast area. 
Mesonet observations from across the region revealed sub freezing 
temperatures covering much of southern Illinois, southwest Indiana, 
and western Kentucky. Most of the observation sites in southeast 
Missouri were still above freezing as of 08z. A very light wind 
persisted at some locations overnight, which has likely contributed 
to the slightly warmer readings in spots. However, as we progress 
through daybreak, a drop of another degree or two should take most 
locations to or below 32 degrees before sunrise. Even if sites do 
not reach freezing, it is likely that a decent amount of frost 
will be present by daybreak. As a result, we plan to continue the 
freeze warning for the entire area through its expiration time of 
9 am. 


Beyond this morning's freeze, the main story in the short term is 
the warming trend anticipated through late week as southerly flow 
develops on the back side of departing high pressure. Highs today 
are forecast to reach close to 60, with readings well into the 60s 
on Thursday. The sharpening pressure gradient will result in the 
development of gusty winds this afternoon, particularly across 
southeast Missouri and southern Illinois. In addition, minimum 
relative humidity will likely range between 25 and 30 percent, and 
perhaps even lower depending upon site exposure. However, with 
fuel moisture still elevated from recent rains, we do not believe 
conditions will warrant any fire weather headlines at this point. 
Another cold night is expected tonight, but with a light southeast 
breeze, temperatures will be several degrees warmer than this 
morning. With lows in the upper 30s, some patchy frost cannot be 
ruled out in sheltered areas. 


Clouds will be on the increase on Thursday ahead of a disorganized 
system approaching from the plains. Forecast models have had a 
difficult time resolving this particular system. A few days back, 
rain looked to be a near certainty on Friday. Now however, given 
the model depicted weak forcing for lift and poor moisture return, 
it would not be surprising if Thursday night and Friday turned 
out dry. As it is though, I am not ready to completely remove 
precipitation quite yet. However, rain chances will be substantially 
reduced and focused during a narrow window from late Thursday night 
into Friday morning. Where rain does occur, it should be very light. 


Long term...(friday night through tuesday) 
issued at 341 am CDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


At the beginning of the long term period high pressure at the 
surface and weak ridging aloft should make for dry conditions and 
near normal temperatures Saturday and Saturday night. 


The approach of a surface front and attendant 500 mb short wave may 
bring precipitation chances into the far western sections of our County Warning Area 
as early as Sunday afternoon, however models not in the best 
agreement on this. The European model (ecmwf)/sref show the 500 mb ridging holding fast a 
bit longer thereby keeping precipitation out of our County Warning Area until Sunday 
night. Precipitation chances still look better Sunday night and 
Monday as these features track across the region. Instability 
parameters now seem strong enough to warrant the mention of thunder 
Sunday afternoon, Sunday night, and Monday. 


Showers on the back side of the aforementioned system may linger 
over the southeast sections of our County Warning Area Monday night. Rather low 
confidence in this period due to model discrepancies. 


Temperatures near normal at the beginning of the period are expected 
to warm to just above normal by the end of the period.

Aviation... 
issued at 1143 PM CDT Tuesday Apr 15 2014 


Under a veil of scattered thin cirrus clouds, winds will go nearly 
calm and veer to the se overnight. After daybreak, as the center of 
high sfc pressure moves off to the east, the sfc pressure gradient 
will tighten a bit, especially west of the MS river, yielding gusts 
15-20 kts in the afternoon, then diminishing by sunset.
