NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
644 am EST Mon Nov 24 2014 


..forecast update... 
Issued at 640 am EST Mon Nov 24 2014 


Wind advy still looks good. Downstream obs are gusting into the 35 
to 45 mph range especially along the front and in and around 
convection. Expect more occurrences of 40+ mph gusts to increase 
over the next few hours over southern Indiana and central Kentucky. 
Showers and scattered storms are still on track to move east through 
our area this morning with the front as well. 


Short term (now through tuesday)... 
issued at 325 am EST Mon Nov 24 2014 


..strong winds expected today... 


The low pressure system near Chicago early this morning is forecast 
to continue to deepen as it moves NE through the Great Lakes and 
into southern Canada today. Its cold front will push through our 
area late this morning and early afternoon. An upper level jet nose 
has entered the Ohio Valley this morning also and that jet will 
continue to strengthen and spread NE throughout the day. VAD wind 
profiles showed a 50 kt jet at 3 kft over the Ohio Valley early this 
morning and expect that to strengthen to around 60 kts by around 
sunrise. All of these dynamics continue to support the Wind 
Advisory currently in effect this morning. As we get closer to 
sunrise, lapse rates should steepen significantly over our region 
allowing higher winds aloft to mix to the sfc. While southwest 
winds during the pre-dawn hours should continue in the 15-20 mph 
range with gusts between 25-35 mph, winds around and after sunrise 
should strengthen to 20-25 mph with gusts in excess of 40 mph 
likely. Some model soundings would suggest gusts could peak closer 
to 50 mph in some areas between 12z-18z. 


In addition to the dynamic forcing with this low pressure system, 
convection progged to move through the area from roughly Paducah to 
Louisville to Cincinnati may become another force to mix down 
stronger winds as well. Storm Prediction Center mesoanalysis indicates an area of sb 
cape will move along this trajectory as well as 50 kts of effective 
bulk shear and 300-400 srh. Thus, think that stronger convection in 
the form of gusty showers and scattered T-storms will move NE along 
the Ohio River and possibly cause higher winds aloft to mix down. 
If this happens, a High Wind Warning or T-storm warnings may be 
necessary. Will need to monitor convection and trends in wind gusts 
closely this morning. Wind gusts should decrease to 25-35 mph by 
mid to late afternoon with convection moving east of the area by 
early to mid afternoon as the cold front pushes through. 


Outside of the wind threat for today, temperatures will be on the 
decline. We'll start the morning in the upper 50s and lower 60s and 
then fall into the 40s this afternoon as cold air rushes in behind 
the cold front. 


Tonight and tues look dry with low clouds hanging around through a 
good portion of tonight before scattering out. Low temps should 
range from the upper 20s to lower 30s tonight depending on how 
quickly clouds exit the area. Tuesday's high temps should range 
through the upper 30s to upper 40s. 


Long term (tuesday night through sunday)... 
issued at 300 am EST Mon Nov 24 2014 


Upper air pattern at 500mb early Wednesday will feature a broad 
ridge centered along the West Coast, a slightly positively tilted 
trough along the Mississippi River, and ridging southeast of 
Florida. This pattern will bring cold, but not unseasonably cold, 
temperatures to the Great Lakes and lower Ohio Valley through 
Friday. 


Extended guidance has come into better agreement with a clipper 
system moving across Kentucky late Wednesday into early Thanksgiving 
day. This is apparent in both the NAM and the GFS as the base of a 
sharping 500mb trough is forecast to move right over northern 
Kentucky late Wednesday. With the speed of this system and the lack 
of moisture, only light precipitation is expected. However, forecast 
soundings show relatively steep lapse rates above the boundary layer 
and saturation above the -10c isotherm, indicating a potential for 
snow. Surface temperatures are the main question however. Highs in 
the lower 40s Wednesday means any afternoon or evening precipitation 
will begin as rain. Forecast lows early Thanksgiving will only fall 
to around freezing. Any light accumulations will certainly be wet. 
As with many clipper-type systems, the exact path of the 500mb low 
will prove important in exactly where a potential thin strip of 
snow falls. 


Thanksgiving day will likely have the coldest temperatures of the 
week. High pressure over the upper Midwest will move southeast 
across the commonwealth early Friday. After maybe some light snow 
early, skies should clear Thanksgiving day and become mostly clear 
for Thursday night and Friday. Highs Thanksgiving day will stay in 
the upper 30s, with quite chilly temperatures early Friday. Highs 
Friday will rebound into the lower to mid 40s. 


Milder air of Pacific origin will move towards the lower Ohio Valley 
Saturday as brisk southwest flow develops on the back side of 
departing high pressure. Both 925mb and 850mb temperatures are 
forecast to rise quite a bit from Friday to Saturday afternoons. 
Although warm air advection will bring increasing low clouds 
Saturday, highs will rather easily reach the 50s. 


Sunday is questionable, some guidance forecast a cold front to slide 
south of Indiana, while some others keep US quite warm. Temperatures 
Sunday will be a challenge, although the proximity of this boundary 
will bring a chance of rain.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
updated at 620 am EST Mon Nov 24 2014 


A strong low pressure system lifting NE through the Midwest will 
bring windy, wet conditions for this taf period. One more round of 
showers and some storms will move through the taf sites this 
morning. Bwg looks to see the least amount of convection this 
morning and will keep a thunder mention out of that taf. However, 
did add thunderstorms in the vicinity to sdf/Lex this morning although not entirely sure 
storms will survive all the way to Lex. 


SW winds will be strong and gusty ahead of an approaching cold front 
with gusts peaking between 12z-18z between 30-40 kts. Expect 
westerly winds to continue to gust between 20-30 kts this afternoon 
and then cease this evening. 


Flight conditions have gone VFR at the taf sites ahead of and along 
the front. There is an area of MVFR behind the front which should 
move through the taf sites after frontal passage (between 14-16z at sdf/bwg, 
16-18z at lex). Conditions look to return to VFR this evening.
