NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
648 am EDT Fri Aug 29 2014 


..updated forecast and aviation discussions... 


..Forecast update... 
issued at 635 am EDT Fri Aug 29 2014 


Seeing a few light returns just north of our in counties. These are 
developing on the north edge of a Theta-E ridge currently over khnb. 
Latest RUC keeps this going on for a few more hours before the 
frontal lift dominates the rest of the morning. Added in some 
isolated showers over the west this morning before switching over to 
storms this afternoon over the northeast. Rest of forecast pretty 
much on track. 


Climate note: bwg received 1.16 inches of rain, bringing their 
monthly total to 9.26". This total is the second wettest August on 
record for that station. An additional 0.08" over the next 3 days 
will tie the record, set back in 1926. 


Short term (now through saturday)... 
issued at 300 am EDT Fri Aug 29 2014 


Weak frontal boundary is roughly located along our southern border 
this hour. This boundary is forecast to lift northward today, with a 
wind shift from easterly ahead of it to southerly behind it. Lift 
along this front as well as instability from late afternoon heating 
should produce isolated to scattered storms, with the best chance 
over southern Indiana and the Bluegrass region of Kentucky. The 
stronger storms will produce brief gusty winds and heavy rain. 


Those storms should exit to the northeast this evening before 
another round comes in from the west late tonight. This action will 
be as a low-level jet aids in development over the bootheel region 
that will shift eastward toward daybreak. Precipitable water values 
will climb to near 2 inches during the day. The main focus for 
heavier storms will be along another front to our northwest, but any 
heating over our region should be able to produce scattered storms. 
The main problem with these storms will be the torrential rainfall, 
given the high atmospheric moisture. Storm motion vectors indicate 
enough motion that we should be able to avoid flash flooding, but 
areas that receive multiple rounds of storms could see some minor 
flooding, especially in poor drainage areas. 


Temperatures will continue above normal this period. 


Long term (saturday night through thursday)... 
issued at 300 am EDT Fri Aug 29 2014 


..unsettled weather through the Holiday weekend and into next week... 


Multiple rounds of shower and thunderstorms are expected through the 
long term with storms likely for a portion of the Holiday weekend. A 
weakening upper level trough will cross the upper Midwest Saturday 
and move into the Great Lakes region by Sunday morning. Another 
vortmax will track northeast through the upper level flow and into 
the lower Ohio Valley Saturday night into Sunday. At the surface 
southerly flow will remain in place with high pressure centered off 
the East Coast. 


The best chance for showers and storms during the long term will be 
right at the beginning on Saturday night and Sunday as the upper 
level disturbances move through the area. Wind fields are not overly 
impressive, but a few strong storms will be possible with gusty 
winds. However, soundings do reveal a very saturated atmosphere with 
precipitable water values rising to over 2 inches. Long skinny cape is also 
suggestive of very heavy rain. Storms should be moving somewhat 
quicker than previous episodes of heavy rain we have seen this 
month. However, given torrential rainfall potential from storms, if 
there is any training some minor flooding issues will be possible. 
This would particularly be a concern in urban areas. 


Another vortmax will set off another round of showers and storms 
Monday afternoon. With drier air filtering in at mid levels pwats 
will drop Monday and heavy rainfall should be less of a concern. By 
Tuesday a frontal boundary will drop south towards the area from the 
north. This boundary looks to get hung up north of the forecast 
area, though the models do have some differences in the details 
towards the end of the forecast period. Regardless, scattered 
showers and storms will be possible through Thursday along and south 
of this front. 


Temperatures for the most part will be in the mid 80s to lower 90s. 
The exception will be Sunday. With all the clouds and precipitation 
in the area temperatures will top out in the lower to mid 80s. Lows 
will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
issued at 645 am EDT Fri Aug 29 2014 


Kbwg had a few clouds go over the last couple of hours, which 
generally has kept them in the MVFR range for vsby. Could still get 
an hour or two of IFR conditions down there before going VFR the 
rest of the day. May see some light showers west of ksdf by late 
morning. The best chance for a storm there would be in the mid 
afternoon, but chance is still low enough to keep out of tafs at 
this point. Better chance continues to be at klex, as a front moves 
north across the region and combines with daytime heating to produce 
scattered storms.
