NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
535 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


..forecast update... 
Issued at 535 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


Quick update to account for the showers that have developed over 
Bowling Green, plus the small chance of an isolated shower eastward 
through the Glasgow area and up to around Campbellsville over the 
next couple of hours. Radar showing some small areas of increased 
reflectivities aloft in that region. 


Short term (now through Wednesday night)... 
issued at 312 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


Overall pattern features an upper ridge centered over the southeast conus, 
meanwhile a weak upper low is spinning over central Indiana. This 
feature will gradually round the apex of the ridge, sliding just 
northeast and then east of the County Warning Area through the short term. 


Very isolated showers and storms have developed over southern 
Indiana this afternoon. Most spots will stay dry, however very 
localized spots could see brief heavy rainfall, cloud to ground 
lightning and gusty winds up to 40 miles per hour. Upper feature will gradually 
slide east overnght and then southeast toward dawn. Will go dry 
through the overnight with the loss of daytime heating/instability 
however will begin to reintroduce slight chance probability of precipitation across our far 
NE during the afternoon hours on Wednesday, lingering into Wednesday 
night as the upper low begins to push east of the area. 


For tonight, am a bit concerned about the potential for some patchy 
dense fog, especially in the river valleys. Overall conditions will 
be favorable for radiational cooling. Think the most likely areas 
will be west of I-65 and across southern Kentucky. Our NE should see a bit 
more cloud cover influence from near the upper low so more optimisic 
that dense fog will not form there. Will mention in the zones and in 
the hwo, but will hold off any any additional headlines at this time. 


Most lows will be in the middle and upper 60s tongiht with a few 
locations staying around 70. Wednesday highs should be a degree or 
two warmer than today, so will go with and 88 to 93 range. Areas 
west have the best shot at the 92s and 93s. Wednesday night lows 
will be slightly milder in the 68 to 73 range. 


Long term (thursday through tuesday)... 
issued at 305 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


Only subtle changes in the long term with mostly a persistent 
forecast day to day. Ridging aloft is the reason for this 
persistence...however latest GFS/Euro now hinting at a weak inverted 
trough meandering across the region at various times. This boundary 
may be enough to focus isolated diurnal convection. Coverage will be 
limited by precipitable waters only in the 1.3-1.5 inch range. 
Superblend came up with a couple of periods in the scattered 
range...but in keeping with a persistence forecast and that dry air 
in place decided to limit to isolated coverage. 


Otherwise our temperature forecast remains a little above normal 
each day. Backed off for day 7 closer to normal...as thicknesses are 
forecast to come down some. 


&& 


Aviation (18z taf update)... 
issued at 108 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


VFR conditions expected at the taf sites for the remainder of the 
afternoon and evening. An outflow boundary is dropping south into 
southern in from a convective complex over the lower Wabash River 
valley. However, do not expect this to make it to sdf, so a dry 
forecast is ongoing. 


Winds will mostly be light and variable with any diurnally driven 
cumulus dissipating with the loss of heating. Will be concerned 
about fog toward dawn as good radiational cooling will allow for fog 
potential toward dawn. Even with this afternoon's mixing, an overall 
slightly more moist low level environment should be around toward 
dawn. So, will go with early onset of MVFR at bwg with a tempo into 
the IFR range toward dawn. Will forecast similar conditions at sdf 
as Tuesday morning, and will go MVFR at Lex. 


A light northwest wind takes over Wednesday with scattered cumulus around 4-5 k 
feet and some upper clouds.
