NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
646 am EDT Fri Sep 19 2014 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through saturday)... 
issued at 319 am EDT Fri Sep 19 2014 


Morning infrared and surface observations show clear skies across southern 
Indiana and central Kentucky this morning. Temperatures ranged from 
the upper 40s to the lower 50s in the north with middle to upper 50s 
across the south. We expect clear skies to continue with a light 
northeasterly wind. The surface winds are expected to remain 
elevated enough to keep fog production minimized. Some valley fog 
will still be possible, but it looks to remain limited. 


Sprawling high pressure will move into southern New England today 
and result in another mostly sunny and mild day across the Ohio 
Valley. A look at the last 5 days of model verification statistic 
shows that the model output is still exhibiting a warm bias of 2-3 
degrees on daily maximum temperatures. With that said, have gone 
below guidance again with afternoon temperatures warming into the 
upper 70s across southern Indiana and northern Kentucky. Upper 70s 
to around 80 will be possible down across southern Kentucky. 


For tonight, winds are expected to shift more to the south and 
southwest which will set the stage for return flow. This should 
keep temperatures mild again with dewpoints slowly rising throughout 
the night and into Saturday morning. Overnight lows will not be as 
cool with middle-upper 50s across southern Indiana and northern 
Kentucky and mainly lower 60s across southern Kentucky. 


Saturday will feature a continued southwesterly wind flow on the 
back side of a departing high pressure system. However, a moist 
mid-level flow and warm air advection scheme will likely result in 
mid-high level cloudiness streaming into the region from the 
southwest. While model data suggests highs warming into the middle 
80s, we continue to take into account the warm biases of late. 
Therefore, will be undercutting the guidance by a few degrees. 
Afternoon highs will likely run into the upper 70s to the lower 80s 
across southern Indiana and into the lower 80s across southern Kentucky. 
We could potentially see a stronger gradient of 
temperature...especially to our southwest where mid-upper 80s are 
not out of the question...especially if less clouds develop than 
forecast. 


Long term (saturday night through thursday)... 
issued at 258 am EDT Fri Sep 19 2014 


The long term will begin with an upper level trough dropping into 
the Great Lakes region. An associated surface low will remain just 
north of the US/Canada border as it pulls off to the northeast 
through the weekend. This will swing a cold front through during the 
day on Sunday. 


The latest model runs have sped this system up quite a bit. The 
latest guidance suggests rain will begin to enter the forecast area 
late Saturday night and may spread into central Kentucky by daybreak 
on Sunday. The front looks to clear the forecast area by Sunday 
evening with most of the rain exiting by 00z Monday. Will keep a few 
showers in the far east Sunday evening, but this period may actually 
be dry. Temperatures will be a bit tricky with the rain chances and 
front moving through. For now will go with highs in the upper 70s to 
around 80. 


Surface high pressure will build in behind the front and will drift 
across the region and move off to the east through the remainder of 
the long term. Aloft a ridge will build across the area from Tuesday 
on. This will result in a dry forecast. After a big cool down on 
Monday, temperatures will gradually warm through the week. Monday's 
highs will be in the lower 70s while upper 70s to lower 80s can be 
expected by Thursday. Lows Tuesday morning will be in the upper 40s 
to lower 50s. These will warm to the middle 50s by Friday morning.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
issued at 645 am EDT Fri Sep 19 2014 


High pressure moving from the Great Lakes into southern New England 
will provide VFR conditions across the region. Mostly sunny skies 
and a light northeasterly to easterly surface wind will be seen at 
the terminals this morning through the afternoon hours. VFR 
conditions will continue into the evening and overnight hours with 
winds shifting more to the south as the night wears on.
