NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
137 am EDT Wed Jul 8 2015 


..updated aviation discussion... 


..Forecast update... 
issued at 1147 PM EDT Tue Jul 7 2015 


The last of a recent series of mcvs is currently cruising along the 
Kentucky/Tennessee border between Bowling Green and Lake Cumberland. Rain 
associated with this feature is widespread and occasionally heavy, 
but is rather progressive thanks to the driving force of the 
circulation. Calls to southern Kentucky have revealed no flooding 
problems so far, and with lighter rain moving in, hopefully that 
will continue to be the case. 


For the midnight to dawn hours scattered showers can be expected, 
with perhaps a rumble or two of thunder. The best chances will be 
along and just ahead of a cold front that is stretched out along the 
Ohio River. Current radar trends support this idea, with rain slowly 
diminishing in southern/western Kentucky, and a growing patch of 
rain gathering over southern Illinois and heading east-northeast. 


Issued at 745 PM EDT Tue Jul 7 2015 


..Flash Flood Watch in effect through Wednesday evening... 


The main synoptic boundary is sinking nearer the Ohio River at this 
hour and will stall out through the overnight hours. Meanwhile, main 
focus of showers and scattered thunderstorms will be across central 
and southern Kentucky ahead of the front. This airmass will be 
characterized by precipitable water values around and just above 2 
inches through the column. Some instability will linger across south 
central Kentucky through the late evening hours as the region has yet to 
be worked over. A few strong to severe storms will still be possible 
with gusty wind and brief torrential rainfall as the main threats. 


Precipitation rates are low enough and progression is fast enough 
that flood concerns are low at this hour, however concern will 
linger through the night as several more waves move along the 
stalled frontal boundary. Flash Flood Watch still looks good. 


Short term (now through Wednesday night)... 
issued at 320 PM EDT Mon Jul 6 2015 


..Flash Flood Watch through Wed evening... 


Issued a Flash Flood Watch given the latest model guidance suggests 
multiple rounds of showers/storms through Wed evening and we already 
have very saturated grounds and a very moist airmass in place. 
Mesoanalysis indicates an axis of 2+ inch precipitable water values 
from the Southern Plains into southern/central Indiana and points 
northeastward ahead of a slow approaching sfc front. A few 
different upper level shortwaves exist along this axis as well and 
will continue to ride northeast producing multiple rounds of 
showers/storms through Wed evening. H850 moisture transport is 
strong and parallel running parallel to the boundary. 


Because of these reasons and flash flooding in western Kentucky/southern 
MO/and southern in this morning, believe that we will have several 
more chances for flash flooding through Wed evening. The best 
chances will come when convection strength peaks moving slowly east-northeast 
or regenerating in the same areas leaving bands of intense rainfall 
rates and amounts. Some areas this morning already received 2 to 4 
inches of rainfall and expect that may be common with locally up to 
5 by in these heavier rainfall bands that occur through Wed 
evening. With 1 hr ffg running between 1.5 to 2.25 inches and 3 hr 
ffg running between 1.9 to 3.9 inches, flash flooding will 
certainly be possible. 


The heaviest waves of precipitation look to be in a round of showers 
and scattered storms this afternoon/evening and then another round 
expected late tonight as the low level jet ramps up. Models are 
having a difficult time with the individual waves, but feel this 
might be the most reasonable soln with a general lull around 
midnight and the early morning hours Wed. Also the early morning 
round of showers and scattered storms should bring central Kentucky the 
heaviest rainfall as the sfc front sags further south closer to the 
Ohio River. 


By late morning the frontal boundary will begin to lift north 
shifting precip chances back northward. Also precip intensity will 
weaken during the late morning/afternoon hrs Wed. For Wed night, 
think that most of the area may see a dry period before a low 
pressure system threatens the area toward sunrise. 


Temps will be tricky depending on rainfall areas and exact frontal 
boundary location tomorrow morning. With rain in the area in the 
morning will stay on the warm side of guidance with lows in the mid 
60s over southern in to lower 70s over most of central Kentucky. We 
should see quite the range of high temps tomorrow again depending on 
rain/cloud location and how quickly they move northward throughout 
the day. Highs should be limited to the mid to upper 70s in rainy 
areas with drier and partly cloudy locations reaching the low to mid 
80s. Lows Wed night will be in the upper 60s/lower 70s. 


Long term (thursday through tuesday)... 
issued at 250 PM EDT Tue Jul 7 2015 


The long term will begin with quasi-zonal flow aloft. Ridging will 
gradually build from the south as a southern ridge retrogrades. By 
this weekend the forecast area will be on the periphery of this 
upper level ridge. 


For Thursday a weakening frontal boundary will slide in from the 
north. This front will stall and continue to wash out across central 
Kentucky Thursday. Scattered storms will develop near this boundary 
on Thursday. These will mostly dissipate on Thursday night, but a few 
showers or storms may hang around, so will not go completely dry 
overnight. Friday continues to look wet in the models as a weak 
upper level disturbance dive into the region. This combined with 
residual boundaries from overnight convection to the north and 
daytime heating will lead to renewed storm chances Friday afternoon. 
Thus, have increased pops Friday afternoon. 


Rain chances will decrease through the weekend as the ridge builds 
in. Precipitation chances will somewhat depend on how strong this 
ridge is. The best chance for any shower/storms over the weekend 
will be across the northern Bluegrass and portions of southern 
Indiana. Temperatures will be hotter through the weekend. Highs will 
top out in the upper 80s to lower 90s with heat index values nearing 
100 in the afternoons. 


By Monday we will transition back to a more northwest flow pattern 
with disturbances diving southeast through this flow. Thus, it looks 
like we will see renewed rain chances early next week.

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
issued at 137 am EDT Wed Jul 8 2015 


A complex and challenging weather set-up for this taf period. At 05z 
a nearly stationary front was stretched out along the Ohio River, 
just a few miles north of sdf (sw winds at sdf, north winds at jvy). In 
addition, various waves are coming in from the WSW, sparking 
showers. The early part of this forecast is largely based on timing 
of radar trends, resulting in occasional rain showers activity at the 
airports during the pre-dawn hours (especially sdf and lex). 


Ceilings have been bouncing around, but averaging right around the 
low end of MVFR, below fuel alternate, for much of the evening. This 
is expected to continue. The best chance for IFR ceilings will be at 
sdf. 


The stationary front will remain in place for much of Wednesday. The 
best chances of rain will be at sdf in the morning. We could see 
some redevelopment in the afternoon, especially at Lex and bwg, but 
at this point it appears that any afternoon convection will be 
scattered enough that we can leave it out of the tafs for now. 


Wednesday night the front will lift north as low pressure travels a 
stl-ind Route. As the nllj revs up we could see renewed convection, 
but the bulk of it should be north of the Ohio River so will keep 
tonight's sdf taf dry for now.
