NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
323 PM EDT Wed Apr 23 2014 


Short term (now through Thursday night)... 
issued at 300 PM EDT Wed Apr 23 2014 


Sfc high pressure will remain in control of the region tonight with 
upper level clouds on the increase as a disturbance passes to our 
north. Low temperatures should bottom out in the low to mid 40s 
across the region. 


For Thursday, upper level ridging will push east into the region 
helping temps warm well into the 70s. Temps may approach 80 by the 
Kentucky/Tennessee border under mostly sunny skies. Southeast-S sfc winds will increase 
to 10-15 mph with some gusts near 20 mph possible thurs afternoon. 


Thurs night a low pressure system will push through the upper 
Midwest dragging a cold front through the Ohio Valley. Storms are 
expected to erupt along this front to our west thurs afternoon and 
move east into our region late thurs evening. Although generally 
speaking storm strength and coverage should be on the decline as 
storms move into our region, think that some strong storms may be 
possible west of I-65 with gusty winds up to 40 mph possible. As 
convection progresses eastward thurs night, rumbles of thunder will 
still be common but any strong storms should diminish. Convection 
should exit the area during the pre-dawn hours Friday morning. Low 
temps should stay mild in the low to mid 50s thurs night. 


Long term (friday through wednesday)... 
issued at 320 PM EDT Wed Apr 23 2014 


Friday... 


Cold frontal boundary will be exiting our eastern County Warning Area at daybreak 
Friday. Expect gradually clearing skies and a steady west wind with 
temperatures reaching the low to mid 70s. A few models are holding 
onto some quantitative precipitation forecast along the I-75 corridor for a few hours on Friday 
morning, displaying a slower trend. However, will keep the forecast 
dry for now until a more clear and slower trend can be established 
since we have had dry going for a few days now. 


Friday night - Sunday... 


Shallow northwest flow aloft will gradually transition to a 
progressive upper ridge over the weekend. Will watch as a moisture 
starved cold front approaches the Ohio Valley Friday night and 
stalls out Saturday. Will continue to leave the forecast dry across 
our north as deep moisture is limited and the best forcing with the 
wave embedded in the northwest flow aloft passes to our north. The 
progressive upper ridge builds in Saturday night into Sunday, 
leading to a warmer and continued dry trend to end the weekend. 


Temperatures Saturday may end up being tricky depending on where the 
frontal boundary actually stalls and then washes out. Regardless, 
lower 70s is a reasonable bet across our north with upper 70s 
touching 80 across our south. Sunday should be warmer, at least 
across our south, if not the whole cwa, however will keep the 
gradient in to account for uncertainty in frontal position. Lows 70s 
north to around 80 south. Lows will be around 50 Friday night, and 
slightly milder in the low and mid 50s Saturday night. 


Sunday night - Wednesday... 


Confidence lowers significantly as we start the new work week as 
models struggle with the individual details surrounding the 
evolution of a complex upper pattern. What can be said with some 
confidence is that we will enter a much wetter and cooler setup 
heading into mid week as a closed upper low wobbles slowly eastward 
against blocking flow downstream. The best chances for showers or 
storms will begin to increase by Sunday evening as a reinforced warm 
front pushes up through the area from the southeast. This is a 
slightly slower trend likely due to the downstream blocking feature. 


Generally speaking, it appears the Ohio Valley will be caught in a 
baroclinic zone between the closed upper low to our west and gyres 
of energy rotating around a closed upper low over the northern 
Atlantic. A look at the 500 mb heights reveals one of the more 
impressive cols i've seen for Monday night Tuesday. At this point, 
the Ohio Valley looks to be on the southern side of the col, with 
plenty of moisture transport ahead of the main low to our west on 
deep southwest flow. Will call for likely chances of showers and 
storms during this time. Being on the warm side of the boundary, we 
should be able to still see low and even mid 70s, however diurnal 
trends may get smaller and smaller each day as we head into mid 
week. 


Upper low looks to wobble somewhere over eastern Continental U.S. Into midweek, 
with the center closer to the Ohio Valley. By Wednesday, highs in 
the 50s and lows back into the 30s are not out of the question, 
along with continued scattered to numerous shower chances.

Aviation (18z taf update)... 
issued at 130 PM EDT Wed Apr 23 2014 


Sfc high pressure will remain in control of our region through the 
taf period. Expect VFR flying conditions with upper level clouds 
gradually increasing tonight and tomorrow from a disturbance to our 
north. Winds will be from the NE today under 7 kts becoming light 
and easterly tonight. Then expect winds to pick up into the 6-8 kt 
range from the southeast by mid morning tomorrow.
