NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
639 am EDT Friday may 22 2015 


Update... 
issued at 630 am EDT Friday may 22 2015 


Based on the latest observation and web camera images...have beefed up the 
fog further in the grids adding dense to the valleys and some 
ridges. As a result...also issued an Special Weather Statement for patchy dense fog that 
now runs through 9:30 am. Sent out an updated set of zones with a 
pre first period for the fog. Finally...for the grids...tweaked 
the next several hours T/dew point grids per the latest observation and trends. 
The grids have been sent to the ndfd and web servers. 


&& 


Short term...(today through saturday) 
issued at 350 am EDT Friday may 22 2015 


07z surface analysis shows high pressure settling into the middle 
Mississippi and Tennessee valleys with low pressure to the north 
and southeast. This has helped to clear the skies through eastern 
Kentucky as a narrow band of lower clouds is holding on near the 
Virginia border. Patchy fog has developed in the valleys early 
this morning in the wake of the clearing and left over ground 
moisture. In addition...a few patches of dense fog are noted in 
the Cumberland Valley and also on some of the ridges. Will monitor 
this via the observation and web cams for a possible Special Weather Statement or npw this 
morning. At a minimum...the patches of dense fog will be 
highlighted in the morning portion of the forthcoming severe weather potential statement. 
Readings are rather chilly this morning...mainly in the lower and 
middle 40s while dewpoints are generally a degree or so lower than 
dry bulb temperatures amid light northwest winds. 


The models are in good agreement aloft with a departing trough to 
the northeast early today followed by rising heights as a ridge 
develops over the southeast part of the nation. A band of weak 
middle level energy will lift through Kentucky and into the Ohio 
Valley Friday night during this transition...before the ridge 
sharpens over east Kentucky on Saturday. Given the model agreement 
have favored the nam12 and hrrr for weather details due to their 
higher resolution. 


Sensible weather will feature a pleasant 48 hours and beyond... 
once this morning/S valley fog...locally dense...breaks up by 10 
am. Temperatures will be a bit warmer each day with a decent Ridge 
Valley temperature split expected tonight...but milder for most 
places than early this morning. High clouds will move in later 
today and continue to build on Saturday as a mostly dry front 
settles into the area. A stray shower cannot be ruled out tonight 
to the northeast of the area as that front initially approaches 
before the ridge aloft builds significantly over the County Warning Area by 
Saturday morning. 


Used the shortblend as a starting point for the T/dew point and wind 
grids through today before following to the superblend. Did make 
some moderate terrain based changes to the low temperatures 
tonight. As for probability of precipitation...kept them minimal through the period...in 
line with MOS guidance. 


Long term...(saturday night through thursday) 
issued at 332 am EDT Friday may 22 2015 


The models are in pretty good agreement to begin the extended 
period...with a ridge of high pressure bringing warm and dry weather 
to the area Saturday night through late in the day on Monday. It 
looks as if the Ohio and Tennessee Valley regions will be firmly 
entrenched in the warm sector of an approaching middle latitude 
cyclone. The warm weather would be in response to persistent 
southerly winds south of a strong northward moving warm front. 
Should the models hold true...we would see the ridge begin to break 
down Monday afternoon and evening...as a large storm system 
approaches from the west. The first precipitation is forecast to 
move into the area by early Monday morning as warm moist air off the 
Gulf of Mexico begins to interact with what looks like a pre frontal 
trough. The precipitation will gradually increase in coverage Monday 
and Monday night as the front inches toward the area. The model data 
suggests that there will be a good chance of rain from Monday night 
through early Thursday afternoon...as the aforementioned cold front 
moves slowly across the region...and perhaps even stalls out for a 
time. The Memorial Day Holiday at this time looks like it will be 
warm with only a small chance of rain across the area. 


Temperatures during the extended will likely be well above normal 
for the time of year...due to persistent southerly flow and 
subsidence warming associated with the ridge of high pressure 
mentioned earlier in this discussion. Highs are forecast to top out 
in the lower 80s through middle week...with overnight lows in the 
60s. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Saturday morning) 
issued at 640 am EDT Friday may 22 2015 


Due to damp grounds and clearing skies occasional LIFR or lower 
visible from fog will be possible at all sites except sym through the 
early morning hours. Once the patchy dense fog Burns off by 
14z...VFR conditions are expected through the bulk of tonight... 
though some patchy fog will again be possible at the lower taf 
sites by dawn Saturday. Winds will be light from the northwest 
through the period.
