NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
302 am EST Fri Nov 28 2014 


Short term (now through saturday)... 
issued at 301 am EST Fri Nov 28 2014 


In the short term, batch of low clouds mainly across our eastern 
sections will continue to mix out and move east. In its wake, a 
short period of clear skies will be seen...mainly across southern 
Indiana and portions of north-central Kentucky. Within this clearing 
slot, good radiational cooling will be seen with temperatures 
dropping into the upper teens to the lower 20s. This clearing will 
be short lived though as another round of mid-high level cloudiness 
moves in from the west. This will shut off the radiational cooling 
and allow temperatures to warm slightly as we head towards dawn. 


For today, we'll see the mid-level cloudiness across our western 
areas work its way eastward across the forecast area this morning. 
By late morning and into the afternoon, we expect to see a mix of 
sun and clouds with temperatures warming into the upper 30s in the 
northeast with Lower-Middle 40s across the I-65 corridor and points 
to the southwest. This is a little cooler than the previous forecast 
and lines up well with the bias-corrected raw blend of guidance 
which has verified quite well in the last 2-3 days. 


For tonight and Saturday, we'll see clear to partly cloudy skies 
during the overnight period. With high pressure drifting off to our 
east, we'll see a south to south-southwesterly return flow develop. 
This will keep our temperatures from dropping as much as we've seen 
this morning. Lows will generally cool into the upper 20s to the 
lower 30s across the region. A broad southwesterly flow will be in 
full swing during the day on Saturday. Within this broad SW flow, 
weak isentropic upglide will commence and lead to increasing 
cloudiness throughout the day. The moisture and lift profiles look 
sufficient enough to warrant some slight chance pops during the 
afternoon hours in areas west of I-65. Current blend of 
bias-corrected guidance suggests highs in the lower to middle 50s in 
the northern half with middle to upper 50s in the south. However, 
with the broad southwest flow in place, these readings may be a 
little under done and may need to be adjusted upwards in subsequent 
forecasts. 


Long term (saturday night through thursday)... 
issued at 258 am EST Fri Nov 28 2014 


Southwesterly flow will be well established across the region by 
Saturday night as the region remains in between high pressure to the 
east and a low pressure system traversing southeastern Canada. 
Warmer, moist air will continue to advect in ahead of a front that 
will move through on Sunday night into Monday. Despite ample cloud 
cover, this flow will bring with it above normal temperatures for 
Saturday night and Sunday. Temperatures look to actually remain 
steady or warm a bit Saturday night with lows in the lower 50s 
expected early in the night. Highs Sunday will be in the lower 60s 
across the region. Isolated to scattered light showers will be 
possible through this time period as well. 


A cold front will move through the area Sunday night into Monday 
morning and looks to be through the forecast area by Monday 
afternoon. Rain showers will be likely as the front moves through 
across much of the area. Behind the front much colder air will build 
in. Given the timing of the front, temperatures on Monday look to be 
falling through the day in the wake of the front with temps in the 
upper 30s to mid 40s by late afternoon. 


Some precipitation will linger into Monday night, especially across 
south and east central Kentucky. The models have trended colder with 
temps behind the front. It is possible that there may be a light 
rain/snow mix Monday night before the precip moves out of the area. 
However, this will depend on how fast the cold air moves in with the 
precip moving out. 


Confidence in the forecast from Tuesday through Thursday remains low 
as model disagreement continues. There will be a chance for showers 
across east central Kentucky Tuesday night through Wednesday as a weak 
disturbance moves to the northeast. Wednesday through Thursday looks 
to be drier, though it will depend on if a surface high is able to 
build in. The disparate model solutions will have a big impact on 
temperatures as well. For now will go in between the warm and cold 
solutions which works out to near normal temps for mid week.

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
updated at 1211 am EST Fri Nov 28 2014 


Ceilings have improved to VFR levels across the region. Clearing 
line is along the I-65 corridor and will continue to move eastward. 
Thus, ksdf and kbwg will seeing a period of mainly clear skies 
through about 28/9-10z before another deck of mid-level cloudiness 
drifts in from the west. Over at klex, low deck of clouds around 
3500 ft above ground level will continue until about 28/08z and then a period of 
clearing will take place. Surface winds are expected to be light 
tonight mainly out of the west. 


For the daytime hours, VFR conditions are expected to continue with 
winds backing to the southwest and increasing to 5-8kts.
