NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
316 PM EST sun Mar 1 2015 


Short term (now through Monday night)... 
issued at 200 PM EST sun Mar 1 2015 


..freezing drizzle possible overnight across south-central Kentucky... 


The synoptic pattern this afternoon features an active southern 
stream with several embedded shortwaves while pieces of northern 
stream energy pass across the Great Lakes region. At the surface, 
high pressure is centered across Kansas. After the morning wintry 
mix for southern Indiana and northern Kentucky, temperatures have 
warmed nicely into the mid 30s to mid 40s as of mid afternoon. 
Scattered rain showers tracked through the area, dropping between 
0.10 and 0.25" of liquid so far. 


Hi-res models are handling the current activity fairly well, so 
leaned on those solutions for this evening. Mid-level frontogenesis 
will continue a few more hours before moving off to the east. Low 
clouds and drizzle will be the main weather story for most this 
evening before a cold front arrives, bringing another sharp decline 
in readings overnight. Plan on lows mid 20s to around 30 by daybreak 
Monday. 


For tonight, main concern is the potential for light wintry 
precipitation along and south of the Kentucky parkways as low to mid level 
frontogenesis sets up from northwest Tennessee to east central Kentucky 
associated with a secondary shortwave lifting through Tennessee. At the 
same time, northwest to north winds will funnel in colder air at the 
surface, dropping temperatures to near or below freezing after 
midnight. This has been a consistent signal the past few days and 
the 01.12z soundings support the idea of sub-freezing boundary layer 
temperatures and a loss of ice saturation aloft with a warm nose in 
between. The increasing signal for frontogenesis adds support for 
the threat of light freezing drizzle, after midnight to mid morning 
Monday, or about when surface temperatures warm above freezing. Quantitative precipitation forecast 
is light overall and the greater threat looks to be just south of 
the Kentucky border, but areas from Butler to Russell County southward are 
the most likely lmk areas to see a period of freezing drizzle. Sref 
probabilities for 0.01" or more of freezing rain are running 50 to 70 percent. 


As a result, added drizzle/freezing drizzle to areas south of the Kentucky 
parkways with the possibility for a light ice accumulation of a few 
hundredths. Today's relatively warmer, above freezing temperatures 
and wet roads negate some of the potential impacts but untreated 
secondary surfaces may develop slick spots for the Monday morning 
commute. Will go with a Special Weather Statement for now, but the evening shift may need 
to see if an advisory is warranted depending on how quickly surface 
temperatures are dropping. 


Refreezing wet roads could pose a problem across the entire area 
late tonight as well as readings fall into the mid 20s to around 30. 
Increasing north winds and slightly drier air should help dry up 
roads, but the less traveled, secondary and sheltered locations may 
have some slick spots as well. 


For Monday, surface high pressure moving across the Ohio Valley will 
continue funneling drier air into the region such that we'll see 
some breaks in the clouds by late morning into the afternoon, 
especially for southern Indiana and northern Kentucky. Plan on highs 
top out in the mid 30s to low 40s, north to south. Monday night into 
Tuesday morning the high shifts to the east and easterly to 
southeasterly flow sets up by Tuesday morning. Increasing isentropic 
lift and warm air advection could spread precipitation to areas 
along and west of I-65 by early Tuesday morning. Soundings show that 
we'll have a sub freezing boundary layer and a warm nose aloft, so 
once again there is concern for light freezing rain at the onset. 


Long term (tuesday through sunday)... 
issued at 300 PM EST sun Mar 1 2015 


..active weather period shaping up for the Ohio Valley... 


A fast moving surface low will race from the Central Plains on 
Tuesday morning into Quebec by Wednesday morning, and will drive a 
cold front into the Ohio Valley. Ahead of this front, strong Gulf 
moisture return and low-level warm advection will feed plenty of 
warm and moist air into the region, with precipitable water values 
well over 1 inch as temps approach 60 degrees. Low-level jetting and 
isentropic lift will make for 24 hrs of categorical pops. 


Main weather hazard will be heavy rainfall, especially over central 
and southern Kentucky. The window for heavy rainfall does not seem 
to last as long, given the faster trends with the Arctic front. 
However, quantitative precipitation forecast is over 2 inches for a good chunk of Kentucky, and that 
coincides with where the heaviest rain fell last weekend, and the 
heaviest snow earlier that week. Still anticipate at least minor 
flooding impacts, which are detailed in the hydrology section. 


Will continue to carry embedded thunder Tuesday and Tuesday night, 
given the strength of the low-level jet and elevated instability 
showing up in forecast soundings. However, not expecting any 
substantial severe threat as surface-based instability is lacking. 


Cold front comes through before dawn on Wednesday. Recent model runs 
continue to trend faster with the Arctic air spilling into the Ohio 
Valley, which would yield a changeover to snow during the day on 
Wednesday as temps will nosedive for 24 hrs or more. We could see 
another wave ride along the front late in the day, and if sufficient 
cold air is in place, accumulating snows are possible mainly across 
central and southern Kentucky. This forecast is still beyond the 
scope of where we would put out actual snowfall numbers, but it 
bears watching. Main factor that limits confidence is a NAM solution 
that is much warmer through the day on Wednesday and keeps the 
potential for wintry precip over Indiana. 


A quiet pattern will set up on Thursday as Canadian high pressure 
builds in, and then will continue through the weekend as the surface 
high settles over the deep south and the upper pattern flattens out. 
Expect cold temps Thursday and Friday, especially if there is any 
snowpack, followed by a moderating trend over the weekend.

Hydrology... 
issued at 315 PM EST sun Mar 1 2015 


Light precipitation and warmer air continued to melt the snowpack 
this afternoon over our area and keep soils saturated. The remaining 
pack contains anywhere from about a half inch up to two inches of 
liquid in a few locations. Temperatures will fall below freezing 
tonight but will rise to similar values as today's on Monday. 


A new storm system will move into the region Monday night. At this 
time, it appears that southern Indiana will see one to two inches of 
rain on Tuesday and Wednesday, where Kentucky will collect about a 
half inch more. Since soils will be saturated from snow melt, the 
new rains could trigger flooding. 


It appears that flooding on the major rivers would likely start 
around midweek and continue into the weekend. This would affect the 
salt, green, Licking, and Kentucky River basins. Minor flooding on 
the Ohio River could occur as well. Residents in flood prone areas 
should closely monitor water levels over the coming days and be 
prepared for possible flooding by mid to late week.

Aviation (18z taf update)... 
issued at 1210 PM EST sun Mar 1 2015 


Initial band of precipitation working through central Kentucky early 
this afternoon as ceilings continue to lower to MVFR fuel-alternate 
levels. Expecting scattered showers to persist through the afternoon 
as weak lift and saturation remains. There are still signals of IFR 
ceilings moving into the area or developing toward sunset, though 
confidence is not that high in this occurring. A secondary wave is 
expected to bring additional precipitation to south-central 
Kentucky, impacting bwg late this evening through early Monday 
morning. As surface temperatures fall to near freezing, this may end 
up as light freezing rain or freezing drizzle. At sdf/Lex, drier 
north winds will help lift ceilings to MVFR by early Monday morning 
then to VFR or scatter out mid/late morning.
