NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
144 am EDT Tue Oct 21 2014 


..updated aviation discussion... 


..Forecast update... 
issued at 840 PM EDT Mon Oct 20 2014 


Isolated showers have developed along a weak frontal boundary moving 
south along the Ohio River. The most concentrated area of rain is 
actually right over Louisville, soon to move into Shelby and Spencer 
counties. Currently, only some light sprinkles are apparent over the 
Bluegrass and west central Kentucky. Showers will move southeast of 
Louisville well before nine thirty this evening. For the rest of 
this evening, southern Indiana will stay dry with isolated showers 
continuing across central Kentucky and eventually, the southern 
Bluegrass if these showers currently exiting Louisville hold 
together. 


Short term (now through Tuesday night)... 
issued at 256 PM EDT Mon Oct 20 2014 


An upper level trough will deepen across the northeastern Continental U.S. 
Through the long term, eventually becoming a cutoff low. A cold 
front associated with this system will move through the area 
tonight. In addition, a couple of pv anomalies rotating around the 
base of the trough will bring slight chances for light showers. 


The first chance for showers will be late this afternoon into this 
evening. Mesoscale models, which have been doing well the past 
couple of days, suggest a broken line of showers will develop along 
or near the river this evening and shift off to the southeast, 
moving out of the forecast area by around 03-04z. Showers should be 
light and measurable precipitation low, so will keep only 20% 
chances in the grids. The next disturbance tomorrow morning will 
affect mainly southern in and north central Kentucky. Again, will keep 
only a 20% chance in the forecast. Dry conditions are expected from 
tomorrow afternoon through tomorrow night. 


Temperatures tonight will drop into the mid 40s to lower 50s. Cold 
air advection will keep temperatures on the cooler side tomorrow 
with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s expected. Tuesday morning 
will see cooler temps with lows in the lower 40s. 


Long term (wednesday through monday)... 
issued at 305 PM EDT Mon Oct 20 2014 


A departing upper low and sfc high pressure will keep US cool and 
dry for the middle of this week. Expect high temps in the upper 50s 
and lower 60s Wed/thurs. Thurs morning looks to be the coolest with 
sfc ridging and a light NE flow pulling in cooler air from the 
departing low. Lows look to range from the mid 30s to around 40 
with frost possible. Friday lows will be a tad warmer ranging from 
the mid/upper 30s east of I-65 to lower 40s west of I-65. Expect 
increased cloudiness as an upper trough passes through the region 
Friday. 


Ridging aloft will move in from the plains this weekend with another 
area of sfc high pressure. This will keep conditions dry with a 
warm up in temps through the beginning of next week. With h85 temps 
rebounding back into the 10-14 degree c range, sfc highs should be 
in mid 60s to low 70s Fri/Sat and then solidly into the lower 70s 
for sun/Mon. Night time lows will jump back into the mid 40s to 
lower 50s.

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
updated at 140 am EDT Tue Oct 21 2014 


Weak cold front is slow to progress past the Ohio River, but will 
gradually push south across Kentucky overnight. Light SW winds will 
veer to northwest or even north by daybreak. Main source of uncertainty is how 
far south the strato-cu deck over Indiana and Ohio can build. At 
this point expect it to build into sdf and Lex, but bwg will remain 
mostly clear. Kept the ceilings VFR, but just barely so at Lex. Even 
if Lex does go MVFR expect it to stay above fuel-alternate 
thresholds. 


High pressure builds from the north during the daytime on Tuesday, 
but without a strong push will keep wind speeds just under 10 kt. 
VFR strato-cu ceiling will persist at sdf and Lex, but could scatter 
out later in the afternoon. Light north winds and clearing skies 
expected in the evening.
