NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
107 PM EDT Tue Sep 23 2014 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through wednesday)... 
issued at 255 am EDT Tue Sep 23 2014 


Pleasant weather to continue this period, outside of some morning 
River/Valley fog. Area webcams not indicating any issues yet, but 
GOES fog product shows some river valleys filling up in eastern Kentucky 
this hour. High pressure will remain to our northeast, giving US 
a light northeasterly wind during the day. Low-level thickness 
increases indicate highs today should be 2-5 degrees warmer than 
Monday. Thus have most places getting into the lower 70s today. The 
warmer start to the evening will mean lows similarly warmer for 
Wednesday morning. Continued warming on Wednesday will mean highs in 
the mid to upper 70s. 


Long term (wednesday night through monday)... 
issued at 256 am EDT Tue Sep 23 2014 


Wednesday night - Sunday... 


Will continue to call for a quiet period of weather through the 
weekend as surface high pressure and a general upper ridge hold over 
the area. There will be a couple of weak upper lows meandering about 
through the weak upper flow, however these features will be moisture 
starved and of no concern. Temperatures during this period will be 
characterized by highs around 80, and lows mostly in the mid and 
upper 50s. The one exception will be Wednesday night where lows will 
be more confined to the lower 50s. 


Sunday night - Monday... 


Will continue to mention rain chances for the Sunday night into 
Monday time frame mainly across southern and central Kentucky as the upper 
ridge breaks down, and a vertically stacked upper low slowly lifts 
northeastward to the mid Mississippi River valley from the Southern 
Plains. This feature looks to draw deeper moisture up ahead of it, 
overspreading our County Warning Area from SW to NE Sunday night into Monday. Will 
keep mention in the low chance range for now due to some model 
uncertainty. The European model (ecmwf) has shown the most consistency, although 
continues to show a slightly slower trend with the latest 00z run.

Aviation (18z taf update)... 
issued at 106 PM EDT Tue Sep 23 2014 


Clear skies and VFR conditions are expected this period. A light 
northeasterly wind will persist as high pressure remains to our 
northeast.
