Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
321 am EDT Tue Jul 28 2015 


Short term (now through wednesday)... 
issued at 320 am EDT Tue Jul 28 2015 


Ohio Valley remains under weak northwest flow on the periphery of the hot 
upper ridge, currently centered over the Southern Plains. Low-level 
air mass is quite juicy, with moisture pooling near a weak 
quasi-stationary front draped across southern Indiana. However, 
coverage of showers and thunderstorms has remained limited by a 
respectable mid-level cap. 


Expect today's convective behavior to be fairly similar to Monday, 
with isolated storms popping any time after noon. Instability is 
decent but not impressive, and shear is almost nonexistent, but 
heavy rain will be the main threat under the stronger updrafts. 
While storms today will be diurnally driven, coverage will be 
greater on Wednesday as a disturbance moving into the Great Lakes 
flattens out the upper ridge, and a stronger surface front heads 
toward the Ohio Valley. With enough destabilization, a few of the 
stronger storms could produce marginally severe winds, especially 
later in the day. 


Very warm and muggy conditions will continue through Wednesday, as 
the surface front will not wave far enough in any direction to 
change the air mass at all. Temps in the lower 90s and dewpoints in 
the lower/mid 70s both day will yield afternoon heat indices just 
above 100 along and west of I-65, so will cover that in a Special Weather Statement. 


Long term (wednesday night through monday)... 
issued at 245 am EDT Tue Jul 28 2015 


The synoptic pattern at the start of the long term period will 
feature a ridge across the south-central conus, with a trough 
building into the north-central Continental U.S.. this trough will build into 
the Ohio Valley through the period, shunting the oppressive 
heat/moisture to the south making for a generally dry long term 
forecast. 


The long term period will start out with a cold front right on the 
doorstep of the lmk County Warning Area. Mass convergence along the front should be 
enough to lift a moderate to strongly unstable environment, 
characterized by MLCAPE values of 2000-3000 j/kg, resulting in 
scattered thunderstorms. Troposheric flow is rather meager with 
0-6km shear on the order of 10-20 knots, so storms will be have 
trouble organizing. That being said, precipitation loading coupled 
with relatively steep low-level lapse rates will support an isolated 
damaging wind threat in the stronger downdrafts. Given this threat, 
agree with spc's marginal outlook for Thursday evening into early 
Thursday night. 


The front and associated precipitation will push east of the region 
Thursday morning, allowing cooler and drier air to filter into the 
Ohio Valley through at least Friday night. Highs Thu/Fri will be in 
the mid 80s with dewpoints in the lower 60s. 


On Saturday, a rather weak and moisture-starved front will attempt 
to push towards the Ohio River. While an isolated shower/storm is 
possible with this feature, chances appear to low to warrant any 
mention at this time. This front will wash out before it makes full 
progress through the Ohio Valley, so temperatures should begin to 
warm Sunday into Monday as readings creep back into the upper 
80s and lower 90s.

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
updated 105 am EDT Tue Jul 28 2015 


Sultry summertime air mass remains over the Ohio Valley, so expect 
the next 24 hrs to be fairly similar to the last 24 hrs. Main 
question overnight is fog formation, especially in bwg where there 
was a quick burst of rain Monday afternoon. Debris cloudiness from 
convection to the west, along with a still-respectable 6 deg f 
temp/dewpoint spread, will work against fog formation. However, with 
both the GFS and NAM guidance showing restricted vis, and the 
climatology of that site, we can't downplay the potential too much, 
and will carry MVFR with a tempo IFR vis arouund daybreak. Lex may 
have some reduced visibilities, but no worse than MVFR. 


Isolated showers and T-storms will be in play again during the heat 
of the afternoon, but given monday's low coverage and an atmosphere 
that looks to remain at least as capped, probabilities seem too low 
to include in the tafs. Diurnal cu should remain scattered, with 
bases just high enough that any ceiling will stay VFR.
