... Minor snow accumulations possible overnight...

Light rain will mix with snow this evening... and change over to
all snow by late evening. Minor accumulations will be possible
late this evening and overnight. The best chance for accumulating
snow will be along and south of a line from Leitchfield to
Campbellsville to Stanford... with up an inch of snowfall
possible. Air temperatures above freezing... and even warmer

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
303 PM EST Wed Nov 26 2014 


Short term (now through Thursday night)... 
issued at 300 PM EST Wed Nov 26 2014 


..minor snow accumulations possible overnight... 


Warm advection precip shield is fairly well established along the 
Mississippi River, as a clipper low dives southeast across Iowa. Clouds are 
already on the increase west of I-65, and temps have climbed solidly 
into the 40s. Main challenge in this forecast will be the impacts of 
any snow produced by this clipper as it swings through the Ohio 
Valley. 


Expect precip to reach our far southwest counties, including the 
Bowling Green area and the natcher Parkway, around sunset or shortly 
thereafter. May take some time to overcome dry low-level air, but we 
are warm enough that it will start off primarily as rain. 


Precip will continue to spread east as the evening wears on, with 
the better chances south of a line from Jasper to Elizabethtown to 
Jamestown. Temps aloft are cool enough that the changeover to snow 
will occur with surface air temps above freezing. Good model 
agreement on decent quantitative precipitation forecast with this system, perhaps even pushing a 
quarter inch of liquid along the Tennessee border. However, warm temps will 
limit accumulation, and impacts will be further mitigated by ground 
and pavement temps in the 40s and 50s. The Sweet spot for snow 
accumulation actually appears to be near the Cumberland Parkway, 
where we could approach 1 inch before it melts away quickly after 
the precip shuts off. Will detail this in a Special Weather 
Statement, and Reserve the right to hoist a Winter Weather Advisory 
if the snowfall rates upstream suggest there will be a greater 
impact. 


Temps will remain just above freezing even where it snows, albeit 
with minimal daytime recovery on Thanksgiving day. Afternoon highs 
still unseasonably chilly, as well as the Thursday night lows as we 
get into favorable radiational cooling conditions. 


Long term (friday through wednesday)... 
issued at 255 PM EST Wed Nov 26 2014 


Friday - Friday night... 


A surface high pressure will slide off the to our east on Friday 
with light southerly flow returning on the back side. Meanwhile, 
benign northwest flow aloft will hold. This will yield a dry forecast with 
milder temperatures in the low and mid 40s. A few upper 40s are 
possible SW. Southerly flow will increase on Friday night as a 
surface low moves into the upper Midwest, resulting in lows a full 
10-15 degrees milder than Thursday night. Look for low 30s NE to 
upper 30s SW. 


Saturday - Monday... 


Upper level flow will flatten out as we progress through the 
weekend, even taking on a slight SW flow by Sunday. Will include 
mention of a chance of sprinkles on Saturday as moisture in the 
1000-850 mb layer pools into the area on steady SW flow. This 
moisture combined with a weak isentropic component may be able to 
squeeze out a few drops. Otherwise, expect continued warming 
temperatures mainly on the advective component. Saturdays highs 
should be in the 50s. 


Slightly deeper moisture arrives Saturday night and Sunday, pooling 
just ahead of a passing cold front that extends from a system moving 
into eastern Canada. Will continue mention of some isolated to 
scattered measurable rain chances during this time, however not 
enough deep moisture to go much higher with pops. Temps continue to 
trend milder during this time with lows Saturday night in the 47-52 
range and highs on Sunday in the 60 to 65 range. Again, this will 
purely be on an advective component as cloud cover should be pretty 
extensive. 


Will continue to mention the best chances for rain on Sunday night 
Monday as the front (nearly parallel to the upper flow) slowly 
passes. Temperatures will be tricky during this time, and obviously 
still mild south and east of the boundary versus much cooler north 
and west of the boundary. 


Monday night - Wednesday... 


Model solutions diverge as we head into the new work week. However, 
most solutions indicate we will have a drying period as the front 
tries to push east and surface high of Canadian origin slides across 
our north. Can't rule out some lingering light showers on Tuesday as 
low level moisture lingers around the stalled front just to our southeast. 
Have tried to indicate some cold nights across our north with Monday 
night dipping just below freezing north of the I-64 corridor. Will 
stay in the mid and upper 30s south. High temperatures will be 
dependent on how much progress southeast the front makes it.

Aviation (18z taf update)... 
updated at 1205 PM EST Wed Nov 26 2014 


Main challenge in this taf set will be the impact and extent of the 
clipper system passing across Kentucky overnight. Confidence is 
fairly high that there will be at least minor impact in bwg, and 
little or no impact in Lex, while sdf is a bit more uncertain. 


Greatest forcing will be across bwg from roughly 04-10z, and the 
column will be cool enough to support snow. Most likely scenario is 
high-end MVFR ceiling and vis with light snow, but could briefly go 
fuel-alternate or even IFR. Not confident enough in the timing to 
include a tempo. Sdf and Lex will be a bit far north to get in on 
significant precip, but will carry vcsh for a few hrs overnight with 
ceilings just barely VFR. 


Modest cold advection will increase northwest winds to around 10 kt on 
Thursday morning. However, mixing will not be too deep so gust 
potential is limited, and cig/vis recover to VFR across the board.
