Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 253 PM EDT sun Oct 4 2015 Short term (now through Monday night)... issued at 230 PM EDT sun Oct 4 2015 The synoptic pattern early this afternoon features an Omega block across the conus, with two cutoff lows across the southeast and the other across the southwest. This regime will place the Ohio Valley within ridging aloft between the upper lows through the period which will help keep sunshine and warmer temperatures in the forecast. The upper-level low responsible for the rain/clouds the past few days has begun to push of the southeast coast. As it does, the deeper moisture will push off to the southeast with it, leaving partly cloudy skies across the Ohio Valley tonight. Winds will stay up just enough to prevent ideal radiational cooling, thus lows in the low to mid 50s seem reasonable. Some patchy light fog will be possible in decoupled valleys. Tomorrow will be very similar to today. Low-level thicknesses look similar to today, but a day of drying soils and full sunshine should help temperatures to warm a few degrees warmer than today which puts highs in the mid/upper 70s to lower 80s. Overnight lows tomorrow night will fall into the mid/upper 50s with some lower 50s possible in the sheltered east-central Kentucky valleys. Long term (tuesday through sunday)... issued at 250 PM EDT sun Oct 4 2015 A quiet long term is in store for the Ohio Valley as we sit under an upper ridge through Thursday. Surface high pressure moving through the middle part of the country and the Great Lakes will assist in providing pleasant, dry weather. High temperatures Tuesday through Thursday will be in the 70s to around 80, with morning lows in the 50s. On Friday an upper trof and associated surface cold front will sweep through the region, bring scattered showers and perhaps an isolated rumble or two of thunder. Confidence has increased slightly with this system so will bump pops up a bit. Confidence has also increased that this system will push on through (rather than hang up overhead), so other than a few lingering showers on Saturday we may end up with a mostly dry weekend. Highs Saturday and Sunday will be around 70 with lows around 50. && Aviation (18z taf update)... issued at 104 PM EDT sun Oct 04 2015 Low clouds scattered/moved out of all sites earlier this morning. This has allowed for VFR conditions this afternoon, which should continue through the rest of the taf period. Guidance is hinting at the potential for some low cigs towards dawn Monday at kbwg, but do not see a whole lot of support to put that in the forecast at this time. Otherwise, expect some passing mid/upper-level clouds. Winds will be out of the east-northeast through the period at about 5-10 knots with a few higher gusts likely this afternoon especially at klex. && Lmk watches/warnings/advisories... Kentucky...none.
