NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
708 PM EDT Wed Oct 1 2014 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through Thursday night)... 
issued at 255 PM EDT Wed Oct 1 2014 


Streak of consecutive dry days at Louisville likely will end at 
either 20 or 21 days. Ridging in place over the area today will 
shift into the Appalachians Thursday, as an upper trough and 
attendant cold front push into the Midwest. Have continued to back 
off on pops during the day Thursday, with only slight chances west 
of the I-65 corridor. Model soundings indicate a mid-level 
inversion, which should be enough to limit development. 


Winds will pick up from the south by late afternoon Thursday, as the 
pressure gradient tightens over the region. Timing for the best 
chance for rain is a little slower, with the best chances looking to 
come after midnight Thursday night. Latest high-res WRF runs all 
show a decaying line of storms moving into the region from the west. 
With plenty of moisture over the region, high rain chances still 
look good, but have backed off on the thunder chances. Any threat 
for severe weather will depend on how strong the line is to the west 
and how quickly it moves eastward. Current thinking is the storms 
will be through here late enough not to have a severe threat. 


Long term (friday through wednesday)... 
issued at 315 PM EDT Wed Oct 1 2014 


The axis of a sharp potent 500mb trough will move across Missouri 
Friday afternoon in the wake of surface cyclone that is forecast to 
rapidly deepen as it moves north across Michigan earlier in the day. 
This trough will eventually morph into a longwave trough north of 
the Great Lakes that will usher in an extended period of cooler 
temperatures that should last through the middle of next week. 




Scattered to numerous showers, with a chance of thunderstorms, will 
continue or develop by Friday morning within a moist airmass ahead 
of a strongly forced surface trough. Widespread showers should bring 
widespread beneficial rainfall averaging a half inch or more 
areawide. A north south orientated cold front will move east of 
Interstate 65 mid-day Friday. The NAM especially does develop some 
surface-based instability across our eastern counties and eastern 
Kentucky during the afternoon. This may lead to the development of 
one or more lines of low topped thunderstorms by mid-afternoon near 
the Interstate 75 corridor. 


Much colder and drier air will pour into the region late Friday in 
the wake of the cold front. Blustery northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph 
will develop late Friday and again Saturday afternoon. Partly cloudy 
skies will develop Friday night. Temperatures will fall rapidly into 
the 40s by early Saturday and will likely stay in the upper 50s 
Saturday, especially across our northern counties where some 
afternoon strato-cu may develop. 


High pressure will settle over Arkansas Sunday, switching our winds 
briefly around to the southwest. Expect a decent warmup Sunday, with 
highs rebounding around 10 degrees above those of Saturday. A second 
reinforcing shortwave will rotate around the by now established 
longwave trough north of the Great Lakes on Monday. This feature 
will stay relatively moisture starved, but may bring some showers 
late Monday through Tuesday. Temperatures Monday and Tuesday will 
steady out at about what should be considered close to normal for 
early October, with highs near 70 and lows in the 50s.

Aviation (00z taf update)... 
issued at 707 PM EDT Wed Oct 1 2014 


Dry conditions are expected to continue through the upcoming taf 
period. Some MVFR visibilities may develop late tonight...after 
02/10z at klex due to fog. Went ahead and replaced tempo group with 
a MVFR prevailing group from 02/10-14z. Elsewhere VFR conditions 
are expected with light and variable winds. VFR conditions are 
expected on Thursday with an increase in south to southwesterly 
winds ahead of an approaching cold front. Precipitation chances 
look to go up toward the very end of the taf period, but current 
forecasts suggest that significant precipitation will hold off until 
well after 00z Friday.
