NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
629 am EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through sunday)... 
issued at 235 am EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Early morning water vapor imagery combined with 500 mb heights 
showed a middle level trough extending from the Central Plains 
northeastward toward eastern Wisconsin...while a broad closed low 
was advancing northward from the Gulf into the deep south. The lower 
Ohio Valley lied in between...as observed by infrared satellite imagery 
which showed mostly clear skies and light winds. Deeper 
moisture...cloudy skies...and light radar returns were off to the 
northwest. 


The main forecast concern for today is precipitation chances as the 
two aforementioned systems track toward each other. The southern 
system will draw more moisture into the area...characterized by 
dewpoints approaching the upper 60s to near 70 this afternoon. The 
northern system will begin to wash out as it slowly advances 
eastward. Overall...dynamics are rather weak with these systems but 
a weakly or uncapped environment along with peak heating generating 
pockets of instability should break out isolated to scattered non 
severe showers and storms. 


Near term hi-res models show high agreement spatially...temporally 
and run to run which leads to a higher confidence forecast for 
today. The hrrr has been very consistent showing isolated 
showers/storms breaking out during the early afternoon hours as 
convective temperatures are reached. The NSSL and Storm Prediction Center WRF solutions offer 
similar solutions as well. The highest coverage looks to be along a 
Bowling Green to Frankfort line and westward...along the axis of 
greater instability and moisture. 


Mostly sunny skies this morning will be replaced by scattered 
cumulus as well as middle/high clouds...which should make for a partly 
to mostly cloudy afternoon at times. Plan on highs to top out in the 
middle to upper 80s. The increase in dewpoints will make it feel 
slightly more muggy than recent days. 


Expecting a drop off in precipitation this evening with the loss of 
heating...though will still carry a chance through the overnight 
with the weak trough overhead. Sunday still looks to be the better 
day for precipitation as we'll have a more favorable environment and 
overall dynamics. Precipitation coverage still looks to be 
scattered...so kept chances in the 30-40 percent range. 


Long term (sunday night through friday)... 
issued at 300 am EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Monday - Wednesday... 


A weak upper low near the Ohio Valley may provide enough support for 
isld showers/storms mainly along and east of I-65 Sunday night and 
Monday. The GFS is most optimistic with this convection and even 
this notoriously wet model isn't showing much precipitation. 


Tuesday looks to be dry with the next chance for showers/storms 
arriving for Wednesday. Middle Range models are different in depicting the 
main source for forcing/moisture. The GFS indicates the remnants of 
T.S. Erika will be the cause while the European model (ecmwf) suggests a northern 
stream trough will be the cause. Either way will carry 20-30% probability of precipitation 
for Wednesday. 


Temperatures for early to middle week will be on the increase back to seasonal 
norms with highs ranging mainly the middle to upper 80s with a few 
locations near 90 tues/Wed. 


Thursday - Friday... 


Long range models agree that a strong upper ridge axis will build 
into portions of the plains/Midwest. Thicknesses will increase over 
the Ohio Valley as a result bringing temperatures slightly above normal for 
the latter half of the week (upper 80s/lower 90s for highs). 
Although a clear trigger is not apparent, some long range signals 
suggest a dirty ridge with subtle waves may cause mainly diurnal 
convection peaking during the afternoon/evening hours both 
thurs/Fri. Thus will have low probability of precipitation both of these days.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
issued at 629 am EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Broken high clouds will overspread taf sites this morning...and look 
for southerly winds to develop. With a weakly unstable air mass and 
a couple weather systems nearby...there will be a slight chance of a 
shower/storm from early afternoon through the end of the taf period. 
However coverage is not expected to be very high so will continue to 
leave out of taf. Mostly cloudy skies should lmiit
