NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
641 am EST Sat Feb 6 2016 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through sunday)... 
issued at 245 am EST Sat Feb 6 2016 


Sfc high pressure and an upper level trough passing well to our 
south this weekend will leave the Ohio Valley free of any major 
weather concerns. Expect partly cloudy skies through Sunday with 
slightly above normal temps. Highs today should reach the upper 40s 
to lower 50s. Tonight return flow will increase especially across 
our southern Indiana and west central Kentucky counties keeping these 
areas a bit more mild in the lower 30s for lows. East of I-65 
expect lows to drop into the mid 20s to around 30. Sunday southwest 
winds may turn a bit breezy with highs creeping up into the 50-55 
degree range. 


Long term (sunday night through friday)... 
issued at 325 am EST Sat Feb 6 2016 


Sunday night - Wednesday... 


An anomalously deep trough will get carved out over the eastern U.S. 
For the first half of the work week in response to a strong ridge 
along the West Coast. A strong northern stream low pressure system 
will dive south into the Midwest leading the charge. This low 
pressure will push a cold front through the Ohio Valley Sun night. 
There is some model variance as to how quickly precipitation along 
the front will commence Sun night. The GFS is most aggressive with 
precipitation starting sun evening before midnight while the 
European model (ecmwf)/NAM are less optimistic and lower on precipitation amounts 
especially before midnight. The current forecast reflects a blend 
of the mid range models in regards to precip timing and precip 
amounts Sun night. With this mind, precipitation should begin as a 
light rain late sun evening and then transition to snow from northwest to 
southeast after midnight. 


By sunrise Mon morning, most locations will see light snow. As the 
upper low dives deep into the Midwest, colder air will rush into the 
area on Monday. Temperatures and precip type will be a challenge 
for Monday. The pattern and soundings would support mainly on and 
off light snow showers throughout the day on Monday. However, sfc 
temps may rise just enough especially east of I-65 to result in a 
change over back to rain/snow mix. Or perhaps p-type may remain 
mostly snow but melting on contact with the sfc as most locations 
still look to see highs on Monday above freezing for at least part 
of the day. Will need to fine tune the temp curve and p-types for 
Mon as this weather system is better captured by the short range 
models. For now, trended Mon colder and snowier. Also of note, 
soundings Mon afternoon/evening indicate a thin ribbon of 
instability well into the dendritic growth zone which could result 
in moderate to at times heavy bursts of snow. 


We'll remain in a cold, snow showery pattern Mon night-Wed as the 
the upper trough slowly progresses eastward. P-type looks to be all 
light snow Mon night-Wed with snow ratios increasing to 15:1 to 20:1 
as a much colder airmass settles in. Bursts of moderate snow will 
again be possible tues during the day as lapse rates steepen a bit. 


Preliminarily, light snow accumulations Mon-Wed look to range around 
1 inch to possibly up to around 3 inches total for the 3 day period. 
Stay tuned as we tweak the snowfall forecast in coming days. 


Tues/Wed look to be the coldest days in the 7 day forecast with 
highs only reaching the mid to upper 20s. Lows look to drop into 
the teens. As previously mentioned, however, these numbers may need 
to be adjusted if a decent snow cover can be established. 


Thursday - Friday... 


Temps look to moderate by the end of the work week back into the 30s 
and maybe even lower 40s for highs as the upper trough begins to 
move east of the area. Both the 0z GFS/European model (ecmwf) hint at one last 
shortwave diving down into the region some time Thu or Fri providing 
another round of light snow to the region. However, big differences 
in the progression of the trough/colder air moving east and 
shortwave timing exist amongst long range models. Therefore will 
keep Thu/Fri dry for now and side temps toward the model blend.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
updated at 635 am EST Sat Feb 6 2016 


Scattered high-level cirrus clouds prevail across the area this 
morning. Scattered mid clouds also could affect sdf at times today. 
Otherwise, conditions will be VFR through the forecast period. 
Surface winds will be southwest at 4-8 kts today and then south- 
southwest at 5 kts or less tonight.
