Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 851 PM EDT Wed may 27 2015 ..forecast update... Updated 845 PM EDT Wed may 27 2015 Last of the convection has exited the Bluegrass. To our north and west, isolated to scattered storms along the cold front in central Indiana are not organizing and do not appear able to push any boundaries south. Therefore have continued the trend of backing off overnight pops. Most of the area will remain dry, with south central and east central Kentucky having the best chance for a stray shower or T-storm. Updated 615 PM EDT Wed may 27 2015 Complex of storms that formed this afternoon, and produced isolated strong to severe winds, has pushed south and east. Trailing stratiform rain still lingers across the Bluegrass. Models had advertised convection developing along the cold front but between the front hanging farther north than expected, and the atmosphere being worked over, that has not happened. Updating the forecast to cut back on pops for tonight. Believe most of the night will be dry, but with the juicy air mass still in place it's hard to rule out a stray shower. Will also include patchy fog after midnight, mainly east of I-65, given wet ground and small T/TD spreads. Short term (now through Thursday night)... issued at 245 PM EDT Wed may 27 2015 Have line of storms along the I-65 corridor this hour. The northern part of the line has been the strongest at this point, with the southern more widespread and less organized. Thinking at this point, after collaboration with spc, is that most of the storms the rest of the afternoon will be below severe limits, so holding off on issuing a watch at this time. Dcape's are not as impressive over the eastern part of the area. The next round of storms for the day will depend on how quickly we recover from this first round. Areas along and north of the I-64 corridor will have the best chance to fire again before sunset, but looking upstream there is a dearth of low clouds over southern Illinois. Will limit late afternoon chances to under 40% for now. Should these late storms fire up, we could additionally see some fog form overnight, thanks to lighter winds and the extra influx of moisture. For Thursday, there will be a little less moisture in place across the region, but more importantly there should be less of a trigger. Thus storms that develop should not become organized, though an isolated wind/hail threat isn't out of the question. Have gone with 40% or less coverage mainly across south central KY, in the area with best moisture and isolated coverage in the north. Highs Thursday should be a touch warmer than today, given the less coverage of storms. For lows, went pretty much with persistence. Long term (friday through wednesday)... issued at 248 PM EDT Wed may 27 2015 An unsettled pattern will continue through the long term period with rounds of showers and storms expected through the forecast period. Friday will be quite warm with highs in the mid 80s. The region should become unstable by afternoon with scattered storms developing. These should continue into the overnight period. A stronger shortwave will approach from the west on Saturday. In addition, a cold front will begin to move in from the northwest by late in the day. With better forcing aloft and moisture pooling ahead of the front, storm coverage will increase with a 60-70% chance for most of the region. The front will move through most of the region by Sunday night, but then looks to stall out near the Kentucky/Tennessee border. It will then move back north as a warm front early next week. Given daytime heating and multiple boundaries in the vicinity, storm chances will continue into the first half of the work week. These look to be scattered in nature with potential lulls in the activity during the overnight periods. There will be a slight cool down in the wake of the front with highs reaching into the mid 70s to around 80 on Sunday and Monday. Temps will warm a bit back into the low 80s by Tuesday. && Aviation (00z taf update)... updated 735 PM EDT Wed may 27 2015 Complex of storms just pulling out of Lex at the moment, leaving behind mid-level and cirrus debris. Expect a VFR evening with light south winds, but the main concern overnight will be fog potential. In this pattern we've had a hard time getting the winds to completely decouple at night, but with the proximity of the front there is a better chance tonight. Add in wet ground from the rain this afternoon, as well as the already tight T/TD spreads, and we have multiple factors coming together for restricted visibility. Some discrepancy in model guidance with the GFS MOS suggesting dense fog while the usually pessimistic NAM MOS shows stratus. For now will go with MVFR visibilities developing after midnight, and tempo groups for a brief IFR restriction around daybreak. High confidence that Lex will go IFR at least briefly, but moderate at best for sdf and bwg. Once we start to mix out late Thursday morning, VFR conditions will return with sct-bkn diurnal cu and light southerly winds. && Lmk watches/warnings/advisories... Kentucky...none.
