NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
301 am EDT Sat may 23 2015 


Short term (now through sunday)... 
issued at 255 am EDT Sat may 23 2015 


High pressure ridging from the upper Mississippi Valley to the 
Atlantic coast will keep our weather quiet today and tonight. Under 
variably cloudy skies high temperatures this afternoon will be 
around 80, with lows tonight around 60. 


Sunday the surface high will edge a bit further off to the east as a 
deep negatively tilted low crosses the Front Range. Widespread 
shower and thunderstorm activity will stream northward through the 
plains, with the Ohio Valley on the eastern edge. As the upper trof 
digs through the west, ridging will pump up over the southeast 
United States. The upper ridge will help to keep most locations dry 
on Sunday. In the far west portions of the local forecast area the 
cap will weaken some by afternoon and surface-based lifted index 
values will go slightly negative. Mid-level lapse rates will remain 
weak, though, and precipitable water amounts will only be slightly 
above normal. Not much of a trigger present, other than a very weak 
surface trof combined with afternoon heating. Will go ahead and 
hold on to the 20% pop in the far west Sunday afternoon. High 
temperatures will be in the lower and middle 80s on south winds 
gusting to near 20 mph in the afternoon. 


Long term (sunday night through friday)... 
issued at 245 am EDT Sat may 23 2015 


Long term is characterized by above normal temperatures and an 
active period of weather. Forecast challenge is timing the various 
shortwaves, so right now the forecast sounds like it will rain all 
week, but in reality we will have specific shorter duration periods 
of stormy weather. 


Sunday night through Monday mid morning... 


Well...the potent upper ridge axis over SC/GA/FL will move east of 
the County Warning Area by Monday morning in response to an ejecting shortwave over 
OK/TX. This will shift the deep southerly flow more over the 
Ohio River valley, bringing an increase in temperatures, moisture, 
and rounds of scattered storm chances. Will continue to keep Sunday 
night basically dry except for an isolated thunderstorms and rain/rain showers 00-03z. Look 
for lows in the mid to upper 60s. 


Monday PM - Friday... 


An active period of weather takes shape through the remainder of the 
week as atmosphere changes to a deep SW flow with disturbances every 
18 hours or so over the County Warning Area. Like the idea of mainly keeping 
scattered coverage of showers/storms going until details of 
individual perturbations work themselves out. 


Right now it appears the greatest likelihood of storms will be 
Monday afternoon. Next wave is Tuesday afternoon, and another 
Wednesday afternoon into evening. Monday PM probability of precipitation are likely to 
categorical. 


Overall pattern certainly calls for at or above normal highs 
(dependent on daily convection and cloud debris) and above normal 
lows given the steady southerly flow/higher dew points. High 
confidence of mostly cloudy for much of the work week with series of 
upper lows coming out of the western USA and into The Rockies. This 
portends more severe weather for OK/Texas off and on next week too. 


Have kept the theme going of milder nights with upper 60s to around 
70 each night through at least mid week. Highs will mostly be in the 
lower 80s, with mid to even upper 80s possible under less 
convection, and upper 70s possible on the better coverage days. 


The severe weather threat looks marginal with the deep moist 
soundings. Precipitable waters  go from 0.75 Sunday morning to 1.7 inches Monday 
afternoon. However, it does appear that 25-35 knots of 0-6 km shear 
(marginal) may couple with some instability at times to allow for a 
few stronger storms. Looks like locally heavy rain, lightning, and 
isolated wet microbursts would be worst case scenario.

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
updated at 1236 am EDT Sat may 23 2015 


High pressure crossing the northeast United States will keep our 
weather quiet through this taf period. The high to our east will 
give US light southeast breezes during the daylight hours, and 
elevated moisture will produce clouds above 10k ft.
