Saturday to 9 am EST /8 am CST/ Sunday...
* temperatures... readings will fall to around or a little below
the freezing mark Saturday morning. Colder readings are expected
Sunday morning as The Heart of a much colder airmass moves
across the Ohio Valley. Expect temperatures to drop into the 20s.
* Timing... breezy conditions tonight will keep readings from
falling too fast. Freezing temperatures should begin a few
hours before daybreak and continue past sunrise. Calmer
conditions Saturday night will mean a quicker drop in
temperatures... with some locations reaching the freezing mark
late Saturday evening.
* Impacts... the freezing temperatures this weekend should bring
an effective end to the growing season.
A freeze warning means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or
highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and other

Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 732 PM EDT Fri Oct 31 2014 ..updated aviation discussion... Short term (now through Saturday night)... issued at 250 PM EDT Fri Oct 31 2014 ..windy conditions and falling temperatures expected this afternoon and evening... ..wintry mix likely this evening changing to snow with minor accumulations possible east of I-65... Potent upper low, over northern Indiana this hour, will continue diving southward this afternoon. It will get to central Kentucky late this evening. As it does so, we should see continue precipitation chances the next at least 12 hours. Colder air continues to filter into the region behind now gusty northwest winds. That should mean our first snowflakes of the season by this evening for a lot of the region, though our western third of our forecast area may dry out before that happens. The main question here is how fast the snow will fall how long it stays on the ground to account for accumulations. Soil temperatures continue to be too warm to support light to even moderate snow rates accumulating. Heavier bands may be able to dump half inch to an inch over narrow swaths. Still think the main concern would be visibilities within the heavier snow bands, but fortunately expect the worst of the conditions to occur during non-rush hour travel times. Will continue to handle with special weather statements for now. As for the cold, the freeze warning for Saturday morning will stay up for now. Have a little less confidence in freeze conditions occurring over south Kentucky, but again will maintain the product for consistency sake with ohx. Temperatures will not warm much Saturday under skies that should be clearing from west to east through the day. Have Max readings going up to around 40 over the Bluegrass and the mid to upper 40s in the west. High pressure moving in from the west late will mean lows Sunday morning in the 20s areawide. Issued an earlier upgrade to a freeze warning for this period, and this freeze should end the growing season and consequently the need for further freeze/frost products. Long term (sunday through friday)... issued at 244 PM EDT Fri Oct 31 2014 After a bitter cold start to Sunday, the long term forecast story will feature slowly moderating temperatures with the next chance of rain coming mid-week associated with another frontal passage. Upper level ridging will move east over the Ohio River valley Sunday as the anomalous upper trough begins to exit off the East Coast. At the surface, cool Canadian high pressure is expected to be directly overhead, providing light winds and full sunshine. Despite this, the unseasonably cold air mass will persist, keeping high temperatures only in the lower to middle 40s across the east, around 50 degrees along the I-65 corridor, and lower 50s in the west. As a new upper level shortwave trough digs across the southwest US, broad southwesterly flow will develop downstream across the Central Plains and into the Ohio River valley. 850 mb temperatures rise from +2c on 18z Sunday to +11c on 18z Monday, so highs Monday should top out in the upper 50s to lower 60s. 31.12z model guidance continues to show a low pressure system developing across the northern plains early next week and then lifting into southern Canada. This looks to drive a cold front across the area beginning on Tuesday afternoon. Moisture return from the Gulf will aid in shower development as the front crosses Tuesday night. Still some timing differences between various deterministic models but a model consensus of 40-60 percent chances look good for Tuesday night and Wednesday, dropping to 20-30 percent as the front pushes out of the area. In the wake of this system, another shot of cooler air drops south, though at this time doesn't look to be too unseasonably cold. Highs in the middle 50s to lower 60s and overnight temperatures in the 30s. && Aviation (00z taf update)... updated at 732 PM EDT Fri Oct 31 2014 A band of snow, sleet, and rain will move through sdf before the beginning of this taf period, between 2330z and 00z. This band of precipitation will likely take visibilities MVFR (maybe IFR for a few minutes) and may also take ceilings briefly below 2000 feet. Otherwise...an upper low will drift southward across central Kentucky this evening, bringing low clouds and a variety of precipitation along with it. At sdf the most likely time for the most wintry precip and most reduced cigs/vsbys appears to be before midnight as a north-south oriented band moves southward out of central Indiana. At Lex, the most likely time for the most negative impact appears to be between midnight and dawn as another slug of moisture comes in from eastern Indiana and western Ohio. Bwg will be on the westernmost edge of this area of inclement weather and should only see some MVFR ceilings and passing showers. Winds will continue to be gusty out of the northwest tonight, and north-northwest on Saturday. High pressure entering from the west and the departure of the upper low will lead to gradually improving conditions tomorrow. While a few lingering patches of light snow will be possible at Lex early in the morning, overall it should be a dry day with low ceilings slowly lifting to VFR by afternoon. && Lmk watches/warnings/advisories...
