NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
619 am EST Wed Nov 26 2014 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through thursday)... 
issued at 330 am EST Wed Nov 26 2014 


..wintry mix tonight and early Thursday morning... 


In the near term, quiet weather was noted across the forecast area 
this morning. On infrared satellite this morning, a classic baroclinic 
Leaf structure was observed over our area. This feature has led to 
mostly cloudy skies over the eastern half of the state while the 
western sections of the state have remained mostly clear. Within 
the cloudy areas, temperatures were generally in the mid-upper 30s. 
However, in the clear areas, temperatures had fallen off into 
Lower-Middle 20s. Over the next few hours, we expect the cloudiness 
in the east to lift eastward. This should allow temperatures out in 
the central sections to fall into the upper 20s to the lower 30s. 


For today, we'll start off dry across the region as high pressure 
pushes eastward and away from the region. Clouds will be on the 
increase throughout the day as a fast moving clipper system will 
approach from the northwest/west. Highs this afternoon will likely 
warm into the lower 40s in the north with mid-upper 40s across the 
south. As the clipper approaches, strong mid-level frontogenesis 
will increase within the tight gradient of the jet streak 
approaching aloft. This will allow precipitation to streak in from 
the west late this afternoon. At this time, it appears that the 
best chances of rain this afternoon will be out across our 
southwestern half of the forecast area, with lesser chance up across 
the Bluegrass region. 


For tonight, the latest guidance continue to be in general agreement 
with swinging the clipper through the region. There continues to be 
some variability in the track of the system. The NAM guidance is 
still on the southern side of the envelope while the GFS solutions 
are a little more north. Tracks aside, the challenge here will be 
where and/if a narrow band of heavier precipitation develops just 
north of the eventual surface track. Low-level thermal profiles 
continue to start off warm with precipitation starting off as mainly 
rain. However, as heavier precipitation develops this may result in 
some colder air being dragged down and pushing the profile cold 
enough to produce snow...despite surface temps above 32. Wetbulb 
temps still look to be just above freezing through much of the event 
as well. 


At this time, we believe that we'll see a band of moderate 
precipitation move across our southern half of the forecast area 
this evening. As mentioned above, a very narrow band of moderate to 
even heavy precipitation may develop. As the evening wears on, we 
should see all precipitation change over to snow by midnight and 
then taper off from west to east during the late night hours. 
Surface temperatures are likely to remain in the Lower-Middle 30s 
(and above freezing) for much of the event. So despite it snowing, 
the relatively warm ground and expected surface temperatures will 
likely limit overall accumulations...to mainly elevated and grassy 
surfaces. The best chances of snow accumulations would be along and 
south of I-64...mainly in a swath from Owensboro to Somerset. For 
now, plan on going with an inch or less of accumulation. However, 
upcoming shifts will need to monitor upstream data and later runs to 
see if additional changes to the forecast will be required. 


For Thursday, some lingering snow flurries will be possible in the 
morning before skies start to clear in the afternoon from west to 
east. It will be a cold Thanksgiving with highs only warming into 
the mid-upper 30s across the region. 


Long term (thursday night through tuesday)... 
issued at 247 am EST Wed Nov 26 2014 


The long term will begin Thursday night with high pressure building 
in from the west. Temperatures will be chilly with lows in the lower 
to mid 20s. The high pressure will shift east of the area Friday 
bringing a return to southerly winds. 


Southerly flow will continue into the weekend as the high pressure 
remains just off the eastern Seaboard. Meanwhile, a low pressure 
system will move out of the upper Midwest and across the Great Lakes 
region. The cold front associated with this looks to slowly move 
through Sunday night into Monday. With warm and moist air flowing 
into the region ahead of this front, scattered showers will be 
possible Saturday night and Sunday. The best chance for rain will 
be Sunday night and Monday as the front moves through. A few showers 
may hang around Monday night as the front continues to slowly sink 
southward. However, Tuesday itself looks to be dry with high 
pressure ridging in from the north. 


Temperatures will warm quite nicely this weekend. While highs on 
Friday will be in the 40s, by Sunday they look to top out in the 
lower 60s. Lows Sunday morning will fall only into the upper 40s to 
lower 50s. Temperatures Monday will be tricky with the cold front 
moving through and cooler air filtering in behind it. At least a 
part of the area should see some warming through the day, however.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
updated at 619 am EST Wed Nov 26 2014 


VFR conditions are expected through much of the day at the terminals 
as we sit between weather systems. The next weather system in the 
form of an Alberta clipper will drop southeastward into the region 
late this afternoon and this evening. As this system approaches it 
will bring clouds and precipitation in the form of rain. Based on 
the latest data, the best precipitation chances look to be at kbwg 
through the period...with just more scattered rain showers at klex 
and ksdf. As the column cools tonight, the rain is expected to mix 
with and change over to snow before diminishing by early Thursday 
morning. Primarily VFR conditions are expected at ksdf and klex, 
however, it appears that a period of MVFR conditions will be likely 
at kbwg mainly between 27/04-10z. Conditions look to improve by 
27/10-12z at all the terminals as the clipper system pulls on off to 
th east.
