NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
624 am EST Mon Jan 26 2015 


..forecast update... 
Issued at 622 am EST Mon Jan 26 2015 


Have updated a portion of the Special Weather Statement to a travelers advisory this 
morning, as we've had a few reports of slick roads and schools 
closing. This travelers advisory is on a line from Henry County, Kentucky 
to Casey County, Kentucky and points northeast, including the Lexington 
Metro. Seems that Road crews have generally been in top of things 
in the Metro areas, with the greatest coverage of icy roadways 
likely in rural locations (less-traveled and elevated roads). 
Otherwise, the going forecast looks on track. Any light 
precipitation across the northern Bluegrass and Lake Cumberland 
region will quickly come to an end over the next hour or two. 
Therefore, expect Road conditions to gradually improve through the 
morning hours as Road crews treat and remaining slick spots. 
Updated products already out. 


Short term (now through tuesday)... 
issued at 303 am EST Mon Jan 26 2015 


..a few slick spots this morning with additional light snow 
accumulations possible tonight into Tuesday... 


The synoptic pattern early this morning features an amplified 
regime, with a western ridge and downstream trough across the East 
Coast. This pattern will continue through the short term period, 
with a weak system diving through the building trough aloft to 
contend with tonight into Tuesday. 


The forecast is pretty much panning out as expected early this 
morning, as a compact clipper pushes out of the region. A weak 
deformation band has formed just behind the cold front, back enough 
into the cold air to bring a very brief shot of snow for locations 
across southern in/north-central Kentucky. Hi-res guidance shows this 
band continuing to trek east through the morning, but never really 
getting its act together. Isentropic analysis from the synoptic 
models depict this as well. Therefore, think this band will likely 
only produce a dusting at best across areas east of I-65 this 
morning, with most locations seeing nothing more than a brief period 
of some flakes flying. 


Even with just a dusting, that could be enough to re-wet the 
roadways, freezing again as temperatures fall into the 20s this 
morning. The gusty winds should help dry things out, but still 
think there will be a few slick spots, especially on elevated and 
less-traveled roadways. Therefore, will continue with the Special Weather Statement 
through the morning hours. If the snow band picks back up in 
intensity, or if we start getting reports of more widespread issues, 
this may be upgraded to a traveler's advisory. 


Otherwise, clouds will stick around through much of the day today as 
moisture remains trapped under a low-level inversion. With 
northwesterly winds and the expected cloud cover, will keep highs 
confined to the middle 30s. 


Attention will then quickly shift to a weak system, slated to move 
in this evening and last through Tuesday morning. This system 
actually looks to come in two parts, with one pv anomaly moving 
through late this afternoon into this evening, helping to saturate 
the mid/upper levels. Snow will be hard to come by with this 
initial wave, as the low-levels will be quite dry. However, a 
second pv anomaly will dive southeast into the Ohio Valley tonight 
into Tuesday morning, this one having a weak surface reflection with 
it. Cross-sections depict the ascent never really gets deep, with 
much of the overnight lift confined from the surface up through 
about 700mb. A weak frontogenetical circulation just to the north 
of the surface low looks to set up somewhere along and just to the 
west of the I-65 corridor. It is in this region that snowfall 
totals could approach a half inch, with a localized inch amount not 
completely out of the question. The main limiting factor to higher 
amounts will be a lack of moisture (only a few hundredths of an inch 
of qpf) and that the bulk of the lift will be below the dgz, which 
should cut down on ratios. Timing with this system will be 
problematic though, given the light snow looks to be fall just 
before and into the morning commute. Will not issue any product for 
this system quite yet given the ongoing snow/black ice potential, 
but will pass concerns along to the day shift. 


Otherwise, any light snow will come to an end by mid-morning 
Tuesday. Highs will recover into the mid 30s to lower 40s. 


Long term (tuesday night through sunday)... 
issued at 257 am EST Mon Jan 26 2015 


High pressure will cross the region Tuesday night and Wednesday, 
bringing US chilly conditions. Lows Wednesday morning will range 
from the teens in the Blue Grass to the lower 20s west of I-65. 


Low pressure advancing eastward from the plains will arrive in the 
vicinity of Chicago by Thursday morning, with a cold front dropping 
down to Texas. This system will bring showers to the region 
Thursday (possibly starting as a light rain/snow mix before the sun 
comes up). Warm air will surge northward ahead of the cold front, 
but with frontal passage likely occurring here sometime during the 
day, it's tough to say how warm temps will get before fropa. Will 
stick with the mid 40s to low 50s we've been advertising recently. 


Behind the front Thursday night moisture will leave as cold air 
comes in, possibly leading to a brief changeover to light snow as 
the precipitation ends. 


We'll get a brief respite Friday and Friday night as high pressure 
moves through, with seasonable temperatures. 


The weekend is a mess as the models grapple with both northern and 
southern stream systems, with the ov in between. Since there will 
likely be *something* in the region, feel we should have some sort 
of pop in the forecast. Since confidence is low, though, will keep 
pops small for now.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
issued at 544 am EST Mon Jan 26 2015 


The light precipitation from earlier this morning has ended, leaving 
just IFR/MVFR cigs. Think all cigs will remain fuel-alternate MVFR 
through the morning hours, perhaps improving to VFR briefly this 
afternoon into early this evening. However, yet another system will 
dive southeast tonight, bringing lower cigs and lower vsbys due to 
light snow. Ksdf and kbwg will be most affected, with MVFR 
cigs/vsbys, perhaps IFR vsbys at times especially at kbwg. Will 
leave klex VFR tonight for now, given they look to be on the eastern 
edge of the precipitation shield. Gusty northwesterly winds this 
morning will relax through the day today as the pressure gradient 
declines over the region.
