NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
632 am EDT Thu Jul 30 2015 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through friday)... 
issued at 230 am EDT Thu Jul 30 2015 


A rather benign and seasonal period is in store for the Ohio Valley 
through the next couple of days. A strong surface ridge will remain 
in place, bringing mostly sunny skies and northerly winds today. 
These northerly winds will usher in slightly cooler temperatures and 
a much drier airmass. In fact, some areas may see dewpoints fall 
into the upper 50s this afternoon during peak mixing, which will 
feel quite nice given the high humidity values (dewpoints in the 
mid/upper 70s) we've experienced over the past few days. Highs 
today will be in the mid to upper 80s. 


For tonight, skies will remain mostly clear and winds will go mostly 
calm as surface ridging continues to nudge into the region. These 
conditions should support a night of pretty good radiational 
cooling. Therefore, will go on the lower end of guidance for low 
temperatures which puts them in the low to mid 60s. Some of the 
typically cooler spots may even dip into the 50s tonight! 


Friday will nearly be a Carbon copy of today. Mostly sunny skies 
will persist with highs once again topping out in the mid and upper 
80s, with the typically warm spots (the Louisville metro) pushing 
towards 90. The good news is that dewpoints will once again be very 
comfortable as readings will remain in the lower 60s. 


Long term (friday night through wednesday)... 
issued at 254 am EDT Thu Jul 30 2015 


As stated in previous discussions, the long term will be dominated 
by a western ridge and eastern trof. This will keep our temperatures 
from getting out of hand, but will make precipitation forecasts 
tricky in the northwest flow regime. In general, though, Gulf and 
Atlantic moisture will be suppressed to our south and east, and 
Pacific moisture will remain to the north. With southern Indiana and 
central Kentucky sitting in between these moisture sources, a drier 
rather than wetter forecast is the way to go at this time. 


On Saturday a weak cool front will sweep through. Will stick with a 
dry forecast due to a lack of moisture in the column, the fact that 
the front will be weak and getting weaker, and no obvious upper 
shortwave trof to help spark storms. 


There has been no run-to-run consistency within the GFS regarding 
the passage of a cold front Monday night/Tuesday. The European model (ecmwf) has been 
showing a steady trend of speeding up fropa, which is also what 
happened in the days leading up to the fropa last night. So, will 
introduce pops into Monday night and keep them going into Tuesday. 
This front looks to be our best shot at rain during the long term. 
In addition to slightly higher moisture availability, there will be 
some upper level divergence to assist in convective development. 


It looks like mid/upper flow will become more active next week so 
will continue chance pops into Wednesday. 


Highs each day will generally range from the mid 80s to lower 90s 
with afternoon heat index readings not much worse than air 
temperatures.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
updated 632 am EDT Thu Jul 30 2015 


VFR conditions are expected through the taf period. A cold front 
has now pushed through all sites, bringing much drier low-level air 
in its wake. Therefore, expect just a few passing clouds today with 
northerly winds around 10 knots. Winds will die down tonight with 
the setting sun, but the dry low-level airmass will keep things VFR.
