NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
319 PM EDT Tue Sep 30 2014 


Short term (now through Wednesday night)... 
issued at 310 PM EDT Tue Sep 30 2014 


A cool frontal boundary is sliding south into our County Warning Area at this hour, 
and will settle over the south central part of Kentucky tonight. Solid 
deck of stratocu that had been sinking south out of central in this 
morning has since dissipated, however has left a sizable temperature 
gradient along the Ohio River valley. Currently looking at upper 60s 
across central in to the low and mid 80s along the Ohio River and 
southward. Southern Kentucky has mixed out this afternoon with dew points 
in the upper 40s in many spots, however higher dew points along the 
frontal boundary will settle over the area tonight and could lead to 
some fog concerns once again toward dawn. Have fog mentioned in the 
forecast across south central KY, and will have to monitor through 
the evening for more widespread coverage and magnitude. 


Other than some stratocu development over the Bluegrass and a few 
fog concerns across our south, a quiet evening is in store. Lows are 
expected to dip mainly into the 50-55 range across central KY, 
however upper 40s and low 50s are possible in southern in. 


Wednesday is going to be another nice day due to brief upper level 
ridging and surface high pressure in control. Will get rid of some 
morning low clouds and fog to yield mostly sunny skies and highs in 
the low (ne) to mid 80s. 


Upper level clouds ahead of the next system will stream into our 
west late Wednesday night, otherwise another clear and quiet night 
is in store with lows mainly in the 55 to 60 range. Low 50s in our 
far NE Bluegrass counties. 


Long term (thursday through tuesday)... 
issued at 305 PM EDT Tue Sep 30 2014 


The long term period will feature a cool down to more seasonal temps 
as well as a good chance for rain thurs night/Friday morning. 


A potent cold front will approach the area thurs. We could see some 
isld-sct showers/storms thurs afternoon ahead of the main line of 
convection associated with this front. Then a complex of numerous 
showers and storms is expected to move through the region thurs 
night into Friday morning with perhaps the heaviest rains moving 
through during the pre-dawn hours Friday morning through around 
sunrise. Although no severe weather is expected with this system at 
this time, pwats will rise to 1.7 to 1.8 inches which is high for 
this time of year resulting in periods of moderate to heavy rainfall 
thurs night/Friday morning. This may lead to some ponding of water 
on roadways, but overall no major flood threat is anticipated since 
this system looks to be a fairly quick mover and antecedent ground 
conditions are dry. Temperatures ahead of this system will climb 
solidly into the mid 80s for highs on thurs. Friday will be cooler 
with rains and lingering clouds in the lower 70s for highs. 


The main cold air punch behind this cold front will arrive for Sat. 
Models have trended colder in recent runs. Sat morning lows will 
start out in the low to mid 40s with some upper 30s possible as 
skies clear Fri night and the core of cold air sinks into the Ohio 
Valley. Despite mostly sunny skies for Sat, high temps will likely 
only reach the upper 50s and lower 60s with some of the raw model 
guidance coming in colder than that. Lows Sat night into Sun 
morning will again be quite chilly in the lower 40s with upper 30s 
possible. Temps will moderate some for Sunday with highs reaching 
the mid to upper 60s. 


Another upper trough looks to dive into the Ohio Valley on Sun 
night/Mon bringing shot of cold air as well as rainy conditions and 
low clouds Sun night-Mon night. This second shot of cold air could 
result in low temps falling into the mid to upper 30s tues night 
into Wed morning, however, confidence is quite low in the 
temperature forecast that far out.

Aviation (18z taf update)... 
issued at 110 PM EDT Tue Sep 30 2014 


VFR conditions will prevail for the remainder of the afternoon and 
evening hours, with a light northwest wind gradually veering to 
northerly. Solid bank of stratocu that had been working southward 
across Indiana has rapidly mixed out over the past couple of hours, 
so no concerns for any ceilings for the remainder of the day at 
sdf/Lex. 


Will focus on fog potential at bwg overnight once again, where 
similar conditions should allow for visibilities to drop into the IFR 
or worse range. Think the better setup for low stratus is in place 
for Lex where a thin layer of low level moisture will be trapped 
under an inversion and surface winds stay up just enough to keep the 
clouds off the deck. Not confident enough to put a prevailing low 
ceiling yet, but will continue to hint at it with sct005 mention. 
Think sdf will miss out on the majority of fog or stratus potential 
at this time. 


Conditions improve tomorrow morning with winds veering from NE to southeast 
through the day.
