NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
323 PM CDT Wed Oct 1 2014 


Short term...(tonight through Friday night) 
issued at 322 PM CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


In the swrly flow aloft developing in the vcnty of the pah forecast 
area, there was a minor shrtwv passing through the mid MS River 
Valley late today. This source of energy will continue to tap the 
increasing lower trop moisture/available instability for a few 
hours, resulting in a few showers and maybe even a tstm over 
primarily sern MO. Otherwise, the overnight hours are expected to 
be pcpn-free, except for a mainly slight possibility in swrn Illinois 
and adjacent parts of sern MO. 


Through sunset Thu, as our region remains under strengthening 
swrly flow aloft, and awaits the arrival of a more significant 
shrtwv trof and sfc low/cold front, there may be scattered to 
widely scattered shower and tstm development well ahead of the sfc 
front, but not necessarily wdsprd convection. The front should be 
knocking on the wrn door by late evening, and forcing will support 
the development of a squall line ahead of the front, entering our 
region by 00z Fri. The front is forecast to sweep rapidly ewd 
across overnight. Severe wx parameters appear marginal for the wrn 
two thirds of the pah forecast area Thu evening, but certainly 
isolated wind damage cannot be ruled out. 


There may be some lingering showers Fri afternoon associated with 
a lobe of energy swinging around an upper low digging into the 
Great Lakes region. After one more day in the upper half of the 
80s, temps Fri will be much cooler as significant height falls occur. 


Long term...(saturday through wednesday) 
issued at 322 PM CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Confidence in the extended forecast is not that great beyond 
Saturday. 


The period will begin with a sharp and deep mid/upper-level trough 
extending southward through the western Great Lakes and into the 
middle and lower Ohio Valley on Saturday. Surface high pressure will 
build over the region and the strong westerly flow in the low-levels 
should weaken through the afternoon. The resultant cold advection 
will lead to high temperatures in the upper 50s north to lower 60s 
south, or around 15 degrees below normal, despite plenty of 
sunshine. Couple the cold temperatures with a stiff westerly breeze 
for much of the day, and it will be quite brisk. 


Heading into Sunday, the details of the forecast become murky. The 
mid/upper-level trough will remain in place over the Great Lakes/ 
Ohio Valley/northeast through Tuesday, but impulses in that flow 
coupled with any associated surface reflections will be difficult to 
time due to the medium range models' typically poor handling of 
those features. 


The current consensus has the surface high settling to the south of 
the region, allowing southwest or south winds to return to the area 
Saturday night and Sunday. Another weak surface trough will rotate 
through the region Sunday night and Monday, and there will be some 
slight chances of showers with that feature. The trough passage will 
be of little consequence, as the low-level flow will go right back 
to southwest or south heading into Monday. 


The last few runs of the GFS have been wet outliers in the Monday 
night early Tuesday timeframe, with another disturbance and a minor 
surface trough. This forecast has too much weighting on that GFS 
solution, with the best pops up to 40% in the east Monday night. 
GFS soundings look like they could support a few lightning strikes, 
maybe. But for now, given the uncertainty, will not mention any 
thunder through the extended forecast. 


Looking at next Wednesday, the consensus has the upper flow relaxing 
with 500mb heights rising. The 12z GFS seems out to lunch firing off 
persistent quantitative precipitation forecast on a weak front strung out east to west through the 
region. Will discount the GFS for Wednesday. 


As for temperatures, after the cold day Saturday, and modest warming 
trend to near normal levels is expected by Tuesday. Might even see 
some 80s over the southwest portions of the region on Wednesday.

Aviation... 
issued at 322 PM CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


VFR conditions are expected across the region as a warm air advection 
pattern develops. Winds will be generally out of the south during 
the daylight hours today. There will be some clouds at 6-8kft for 
most of the 18z taf period. Winds will be light serly overnight, 
then pick up Thu morning out of the south again, especially west 
of the MS river. There was not enough probability for a shower or 
tstm occurrence to include in the kcgi taf yet.
