NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
323 am EDT Wednesday Sep 2 2015 


Short term (now through thursday)... 
issued at 322 am EDT Wednesday Sep 2 2015 


In the near term, area of middle-high level cloudiness continues to 
spread northeastward out of western Tennessee. This cloud cover may 
complicate fog formation in the river valleys of southern Kentucky 
this morning. Otherwise, mostly clear skies were noted across 
southern Indiana and northern Kentucky. Temperatures ranged from 
the upper 60s in the north to the lower 70s in the south. Expect 
temperatures to continue to fall off toward dawn and then start 
their diurnal uptick. 


For today, upper level low across central Ohio will continue to move 
slowly off to the east. A secondary upper low will continue to drop 
southward through Arkansas. The resultant flow across our area will 
be southwesterly, so a steady stream of moisture will continue to 
lift northward out of the Gulf Coast states. The middle-high level 
cloudiness may result in a delay in the morning temperature rise, 
but local guidance continues to suggest that we'll see highs top out 
in the upper 80s to the lower 90s. In general, a range of 87 to 92 
seems very reasonable with the highest readings being confined to 
southern Kentucky. Can't rule out some very isolated convection 
this afternoon, though forcing is not really all that focused in any 
certain area. At this time feel that coverage will be less than 
15%, therefore plan on going with a dry forecast at this time. 


Mostly clear skies are expected across the region for the overnight 
period with lows dropping into the upper 60s to the lower 70s. For 
Thursday, we'll continue to see moisture increase across the region. 
Isolated-scattered convection will attempt to fire in the afternoon. 
High resolution model data suggests that areas mainly east of I-65 
would have the highest chances of seeing rainfall. Highs will 
remain warm with upper 80s to the lower 90s expected. 


Long term (thursday night through tuesday)... 
issued at 300 am EDT Wednesday Sep 2 2015 


The synoptic pattern at the start of the long term period will 
feature an amplified and persistent ridge across much of the eastern 
Continental U.S....which will bring a rather dry and seasonably warm period of 
weather to the region through the extended period. 


Friday into the upcoming weekend will be characterized by rather 
steamy conditions as upper level ridging builds in overhead. Have 
upped highs a degree or two from the previous forecast...which puts 
them solidly into the upper 80s/90s Friday-Sunday in many 
locations...with even some middle 90s possible in the typical warm 
spots. A dampening wave attempting to round the ridge may bring 
some isolated storms to the region Friday mainly east of Interstate 
65. For the weekend...we will actually get a fetch of moisture off 
the western Atlantic as the low/middle level flow turns easterly. This 
slight increase in moisture coupled with weak/subtle east-to-west 
moving disturbances are enough to keep slight storm chances 
(diurnally driven) going Saturday into Sunday...especially across 
southern and east-central Kentucky. 


Monday into Tuesday then look mainly dry as a cold front attempts to 
approach from the northwest. As expected this far out...guidance is 
struggling with the timing of the front with the GFS being slower 
than the operational European model (ecmwf) solution. Given known model biases of 
breaking ridges down too quickly...will favor the slower GFS 
solution which should keep Tuesday mainly dry across the region. 
While some slight cooling is possible early next week given the 
upper-level ridge breaking down a bit...temperatures in the upper 
80s to lower 90s still looks reasonable which will make this a 
pretty impressive and prolonged heat wave to start off early 
September.

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
issued at 130 am EDT Wednesday Sep 2 2015 


Largely kept a persistence forecast going this morning with the taf 
package as new data supports ongoing forecast. Fog looks probable 
down in kbwg and klex later this morning in the 02/08-12z time 
frame. Kbwg looks to see the worst of it where they may drop to 
around 1/2sm later this morning. Even ksdf may drop to around 5sm 
for a few hours around dawn this morning. Outside of the fog, VFR 
conditions are expected through the taf period.
