Short term (now through wednesday)... 
issued at 300 am EDT Tue Jul 29 2014 


We'll continue to watch temps drop early this morning with expected 
lows approaching records. Here are some of the record lows for July 
29th: 


Record forecast 


Bowling green: 52, 1925 57 
frankfort: 52, 2013 54 
louisville: 58, 1928* 57 
lexington: 54, 2013 56 


The rest of the day will be mostly to partly sunny with sfc high 
pressure over the region and upper troughing aloft. The core of 
coldest air associated with this trough will drop south into our County Warning Area 
today resulting in high temps only reaching the mid to upper 70s. 
Upper level energy in the base of the trough may spark isolated 
sprinkles this afternoon, but did not feel confident enough to 
include this in the forecast. Here are record cold Max temps for 
July 29th: 


Record forecast 


Bowling green: 75, 2000 78 
frankfort: 74, 1994* 75 
louisville: 71, 1981 78 
lexington: 70, 1972 76 


(* and previous years) 


Tonight will once again be cool with mainly clear to partly cloudy 
skies. Sfc ridging will become stronger over our region resulting 
in light or calm winds and good rad cooling. Lows will once again 
drop into the mid to upper 50s. Here is a look at some of the 
record lows for July 30th: 


Record forecast 


Bowling green: 53, 1965 56 
frankfort: 50, 1965 56 
louisville: 55, 1965 61 
lexington: 51, 1965 58 


In addition to cool temps, patchy fog may develop late tonight into 
Wed morning. For now, kept fog confined to valley locations but an 
expansion in area may be needed in coming forecasts. Don't think 
fog will be too thick or widespread though at this time. 


Wednesday temps will rebound back into the upper 70s and lower 80s 
across the region for highs. More upper level disturbances within 
the broad upper trough over the Midwest will provide light precip 
chances to our north but think that our area will remain largely dry. 


Long term (wednesday night through monday)... 
issued at 300 am EDT Tue Jul 29 2014 


An amplified pattern with troughing centered near the Great Lakes 
will remain in place through much of the extended. The core of the 
500mb trough will remain in place near St james' Bay through Friday, 
before being pushed east by increasing flow across the Canadian 
prairies. Even when this occurs, residual troughing will continue 
over the lower Ohio Valley through early Monday. 


Despite the presence of troughing aloft, surface pressure gradients 
will remain quite light for practically the entire weekend, with 
nearly calm winds at night and light afternoon winds that will tend 
to stay from the north or northeast. 


Temperatures will stay cooler than late July climo, which averages 
around 88 and 68 for the last day in July. Gradually, temperatures 
will slowly moderate from Thursday through Sunday, with average 
highs rising from the lower to mid 80s, to the mid to upper 80s by 
Monday. 


Despite troughing and generally cool 500mb temperatures aloft, deep 
moisture will remain limited to the near Gulf regions and diurnal 
shower activity will remain limited. Have maintained current 
forecast of isolated to scattered afternoon and evening 
thunderstorms for Friday and Saturday afternoons, when the upper 
trough axis will lie right over the commonwealth. 


&& 


Aviation (18z taf update)... 
issued at 1251 PM EDT Tue Jul 29 2014 


High pressure will build in through this taf period. Winds will be 
out of the northwest at 7-9 knots through the afternoon, becoming 
light and variable to calm tonight. They will shift to more westerly 
tomorrow. Scattered cu will develop this afternoon and should 
dissipate overnight. With high pressure overhead, some light fog 
will be possible at bwg and Lex tomorrow morning.
