NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
1242 am EDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through Saturday night)... 
issued at 255 PM EDT Fri Apr 18 2014 


Storm system across the southeast U.S. Will help to keep our weather 
quiet this period. We will see a steady north to northeasterly wind 
at the surface, in the flow around this system. There is a cloud 
gradient from northwest to southeast today, with cirrus streaming 
north from this low, but these clouds should shift east tonight. 
Despite the sunshine tomorrow, lower thicknesses, kept low by that 
closed low to our southeast, will mean temperatures stay within 5 
degrees of normal this period. 


Long term (sunday through friday)... 
issued at 310 PM EDT Fri Apr 18 2014 


Sunday - Friday... 


An amplified upper level ridge will be in place over the Ohio Valley 
on Sunday, upstream of a closed upper low off the southeast Continental U.S.. this 
will result in a warm and dry day with temperatures nearly 10 
degrees above normal for this time of year. Most highs should stay 
in the upper 70s although a few spots may touch 80 degrees. Sunday 
night will be continued dry with mild overnight lows in the low and 
mid 50s. Expect to see a light southerly wind to develop toward 
dawn, along with increasing upper level sky cover. 


By Monday, the upper level ridge axis will move off to the east. 
Meanwhile, a shortwave will dive across the northern plains heading 
into the Great Lakes. An associated surface low will strengthen 
ahead of this feature with some weak isentropic ascent possible over 
the Ohio Valley. Forecast models continue to depict quantitative precipitation forecast over our 
area on Monday, however agree with previous forecast reasoning in 
keeping low chances across our western County Warning Area further removed from the 
upper level ridge. The main chances for scattered showers and a few 
thunderstorms will arrive Monday night into early Tuesday as the 
aforementioned surface low slides across the Great Lakes, dragging a 
cold front through our region as it does so. There continues to be 
some question as to how much moisture this system will have to work 
with as return flow from the Gulf looks to be limited by the upper 
level ridge in place the day before. 


Highs Monday will be a bit cooler in the mid 70s under increased sky 
cover. Monday night will be even milder than Sunday night under a 
steady southerly flow ahead of the approaching cold front. Tuesday 
will see highs in the lower 70s despite being Post frontal as we'll 
see some peaks at the sun in the afternoon and cooler air lags 
behind a bit. 


We'll see a dry period of weather Tuesday night through Thursday as 
progressive upper level ridging builds back over the region, and 
high pressure at the surface also holds. Temperatures Wednesday will 
be the coolest of the period and should top out right around 70 
degrees. Thursday will be back in the mid 70s. Overnight lows during 
mid week will generally be near the normal mark. 


Confidence decreases by the end of next week as the progressive 
upper level ridge pushes off to the east and the next trough moves 
in. There is general agreement in the next wave developing, however 
timing is certainly in question. Will go with low chances for 
showers and a T-storm during this time.

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
issued at 1241 am EDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


VFR conditions will prevail through the valid taf period. The 
broken cirrus deck currently over the region will slowly push east 
overnight, allowing sites to go mainly clear by the daylight hours. 
After light and variable winds early this morning, winds will 
increase to around 10 knots out of the east-northeast today.
