NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
1227 am EDT sun Aug 2 2015 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through Sunday night)... 
issued at 315 PM EDT Sat Aug 1 2015 


Now - Sunday... 


Northwest flow aloft will persist, along with high pressure at the 
surface. This will allow for continued dry conditions with a 
comfortable feel in the drier low level airmass. A few upper clouds 
will stream overhead tonight, although still expect good radiational 
cooling conditions. This will allow for temperatures to drop nicely into 
the low and middle 60s in many spots. A few sheltered northern areas 
may see the upper 50s given that we've mixed out into the low and 
middle 50s dew points this afternoon. One thing that may keep that from 
occurring will be the few-scattered upper clouds that look to stream 
overhead. 


Expect temperatures to be a degree or two warmer in most spots on Sunday as 
temperatures rise mostly toward the middle/upper 80s NE to the low 90s SW. 
Other than a few clouds...skies will be mostly sunny with continued 
comfortable humidity levels. 


Sunday night... 


A disturbance moves across the Great Lakes region Sunday night. The 
associated surface low will drag a moisture starved front toward our 
County Warning Area with the potential to kick off a shower or two across southeast 
Indiana. Best moisture and coverage will be north so decided to go 
dry. The 12z runs of the NAM/European model (ecmwf) have trended that way which lends 
more confidence in the dry solution. Will likely still see an 
increase in clouds and low level moisture so expect the overnight to 
be slightly milder in the middle and upper 60s in most spots. 


Long term (monday through saturday)... 
issued at 329 PM EDT Sat Aug 1 2015 


Not a lot of change in the forecasts for the long term period given 
the data over the last 24 hours or so. A persistent low amplitude 
ridge west, trough east pattern looks to continue through the 
period. The pattern does look to amplify a bit by late week as the 
western trough amplifies which results in a deeper eastern US trough. 


A few disturbances will push through early in the period (mon-tue) 
which will likely result in some scattered showers and 
thunderstorms. The real unsettled weather is likely to unfold by 
midweek as a relatively strong middle-level wave drops out of the 
plains and then slowly pushes through The Heart of the Ohio Valley. 
This feature should bring multiple rounds of convection to the 
region. The highest chances of rainfall look to be on Wednesday and 
Thursday as the system passes through. Several other waves will 
likely pass through late Thursday and Friday resulting in a 
continued wet pattern with some drying expected by late Saturday as 
the upper trough shifts more to the east and we start to see a bit 
of ridging building in from the west. 


Overall forecast confidence here remains generally above average 
given the relatively good consistency from the models...in particular 
the Euro which has a decent run-to-run consistency and has verified 
well in the last week or so locally. The GFS solutions are starting 
to come into line with the Euro so, it does appear that forecast 
convergence is taking shape. There remains some differences on quantitative precipitation forecast 
amounts between the models...along with their placement. The GFS 
remains a bit heavier and more north with its quantitative precipitation forecast placement, while 
the Euro is further south and lighter. The ensemble means are 
generally in between these two models both spatially and temporally. 
Therefore, total quantitative precipitation forecast amounts next week of 2-3 inches with locally 
higher amounts still seems reasonable. 


Temperatures through the period will be near seasonal normals for 
early August initially, with Monday and Tuesday being the warmest 
days. Increased cloud cover and expected precipitation will likely 
keep temperatures below average for Wednesday through Friday. 
Another round of cooler and drier air looks on tap as we head into 
next weekend. For this forecast, we stayed close to the superblend 
guidance which has verified well in recent days.

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
issued at 1225 am EDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Plan on VFR conditions at sdf/Lex/bwg through the taf period as high 
pressure remains in control combined with a dry air mass in place. 
Winds will be light/variable through this morning...then become 
southerly this afternoon and tonight ahead of a weather system 
approaching from the northwest. Look for cirrus clouds to pass 
overhead at times...otherwise skies will be clear.
