NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
723 PM EDT Fri Sep 19 2014 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through Saturday night)... 
issued at 300 PM EDT Fri Sep 19 2014 


Surface ridging currently centered over New England extends 
southwest along the Ohio River through Missouri. This ridge has 
brought quite dry easterly winds to the commonwealth and pristine, 
almost cloud-free skies that will likely continue at least through 
the evening hours. 


Winds will veer to the south tonight and to the south southwest 
Saturday as return flow sets up as this ridge axis sags southwards 
into the Tennessee Valley. Skies will initially stay clear this 
evening, but forecast soundings hint at a possibility of some 
strato-cu developing and advecting north during the early morning 
hours tomorrow. Despite south winds Saturday, deep moisture will not 
really arrive until late afternoon or during the evening. 
Temperatures early tomorrow will only fall into the upper 50s to the 
lower 60s. Expect a warm day Saturday under partly cloudy skies with 
highs reaching the lower 80s. Indeed, Saturday will be our warmest 
day in well over a week. 


A quick moving disturbance moving along the U.S - Canadian border 
will amplify a bit as it cross the western Great Lakes Sunday 
morning. By late Sunday, this feature will move across western New 
England. Both the NAM and the GFS bring its associated cold front 
south of the Ohio River during the late morning hours Sunday. 


Scattered showers and storms may develop to our north late Saturday. 
However, this boundary will be crossing the Ohio during the morning 
hours, with little surface-based instability present. Scattered 
convection over southern Indiana very early Sunday will likely be 
weakening. The NAM especially hints at a possible re-development of 
convection along our southern counties during the afternoon hours 
right before the cold front clears the state. Think that the best 
chances of any substantial precipitation will be north across 
central and possibly southern Indiana, and to our south along our 
KY/TN border. Highs Sunday will range from the lower 80s south to 
the mid 70s north. 


Long term (sunday through friday)... 
issued at 249 PM EDT Fri Sep 19 2014 


Sunday - Sunday night... 


The only rain chances in the long term will occur on Sunday as a 
trough swings through the Great Lakes region, and the trailing cold 
front slides through our County Warning Area. Will continue to mention scattered 
coverage of showers and a few storms along and ahead of this front 
during the day. Deep moisture ahead of the front isn't impressive 
enough to warrant higher coverage. There has been a considerable 
trend toward faster timing over the past 24 hours, so will actually 
go dry for the Sunday night timeframe. Temperatures will be a bit 
tricky on Sunday due to the frontal passage, however most spots 
should find their way to the upper 70s to around 80. 


Monday - Friday... 


Surface high pressure will settle into the region on Monday behind 
the departing front. Meanwhile, the departing upper trough axis will 
push east. This will bring a cool down along with some developing 
stratocu. Highs will only top out in the upper 60s and low 70s. 
Monday night will bring lows into the 45-50 range. 


We'll be under the influence of an expansive upper level ridge and 
surface high pressure Tuesday through Friday. Dry conditions will 
persist with temperatures slowly trending back toward the 80 degree 
mark by Thursday and Friday. After Tuesday night in the upper 40s to 
around 50, overnight lows will mainly range in the mid 50s for the 
remainder of the week.

Aviation (00z taf update)... 
issued at 720 PM EDT Fri Sep 19 2014 


VFR conditions are expected this taf period as we enter return flow 
on the back side of departing high pressure. A few things of note 
to watch though. First of all, models keep hinting at the 
development of a strato-cu deck over Tennessee late tonight that may advect 
into our area from the south. If this happens, a cig between 3-4 
kft may become established at the taf sites during the early morning 
hours. Have remained optimistic with a sct deck at this time 
though. Also, a low level jet of around 30 kts is progged to develop late 
tonight which may cause borderline low level wind shear. Felt that this threat was 
too minimal to include in the tafs at this time. 


Sfc winds should remain east-southeast through the night decreasing to around 
or below 5 kts after sunset. Winds will veer more south-southwest for tomorrow 
afternoon increasing to 8-12 kts.
