Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
255 am EDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Short term...(today through saturday) 
issued at 255 am EDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


06z surface analysis shows weak high pressure in place over eastern 
Kentucky. Even so...a fair amount of high clouds are passing overhead 
this night as a consequence of a middle level trough approaching the 
Ohio Valley with a healthy pool of energy. These clouds ruined...for 
many in eastern Kentucky...a shot at seeing the partial solar 
eclipse early Thursday evening. Now they are helping to keep 
temperatures from completely bottoming out...likely leading to only 
patchy fog for the valleys...though locally dense pockets will be 
possible in the far east towards dawn. In addition...a few specks of 
light frost cannot be ruled out in some of the colder valleys 
locations...away from creeks...lakes...and other bodies of water near 
dawn. Currently a moderate ridge to valley temperature split exits 
- running from the upper 30s in the deeper eastern valleys to the 
middle 40s on the ridges while winds remain light and variable. 


The models are in good agreement aloft through the short term portion 
of the forecast. The all take a small...but sharp...trough through 
eastern Kentucky and the southern Appalachians later today. This will 
be followed by the strong Big Bend Ridge spreading east while a 
trough and its energy pass quickly by to the north into the start of 
the weekend. Heights over eastern Kentucky will rise throughout the 
process protecting the area from any northern intrusions of colder 
air and any precipitation threat. Given the overall model sameness have 
followed the latest higher resolution nam12 model most closely for 
the short term...mainly temperature/cloud...forecast. 


Sensible weather will feature partly to mostly cloudy skies and 
warming temperatures today. This will be followed by additional times of 
clouds and clearing...dictated by the fast flow aloft...tonight 
through Saturday. With no real threat of precipitation on the docket we can 
focus the forecast on the pleasantly mild temperatures...for middle 
October...on tap through the weekend. Also expect readings to stay 
out of the frost zone tonight with little concern for any more than 
some localized fog patches in the valleys toward dawn Saturday. All 
in all...a pleasant end to the week...with times of limited sunshine 
the only potential drawback. 


For temperatures...dewpoints...and winds followed the latest 
consshort...and its British Columbia version...through the first 18 to 24 hours of 
the forecast and the superblend thereafter. Did make some changes to 
better reflect the Ridge Valley differences also expected to develop 
tonight. Probability of precipitation thorough the period were kept low...in line with the 
minuscule values from the MOS guidance. 


Long term...(saturday night through thursday) 
issued at 245 am EDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Very mild/perhaps near record warmth will be the main story through 
the extended for the early half of next week. The secondary focus 
will be around a cold front and precipitation chances as it drops 
through the area Tuesday night and Wednesday. Models are in fairly 
good agreement through Tuesday night...before differences become 
tougher to resolve. Thus...forecast confidence is decent up to the 
frontal passage with less confidence Post frontal. 


To start the period...middle level heights will continue to build 
Saturday night into Monday as strong ridging spreads across the Ohio 
River valley. Some pesky clouds could linger Saturday night in the 
wake of the shortwave trough on Saturday. This may keep temperatures 
a bit milder. Clouds should quickly erode on Sunday as subsidence 
takes over...allowing a mild day with highs climbing back above 
normal with readings into the lower 70s. With the ridge centered 
over the area on Monday...this will likely be the warmest day with 
highs easily into the upper 70s...and likely seeing some lower 80s 
in places. With records in the low to middle 80s...we could threaten 
the records. Same could be said about Tuesday as a cold front moves 
into the Central Plains...the gradient should tighten up ahead of 
the front continuing the warmth. With records slightly lower on 
Tuesday...they could be more in jeopardy. 


Models continue to agree on a the cold front passing through the 
region Tuesday night. Given the model consistency and 
agreement...have opted to go with a period of likely probability of precipitation. 
Instability looks way to weak to support any thunder...especially 
given the time of year. Both the European model (ecmwf) and GFS slow down the front 
and stall it just to our southeast by middle week. GFS keeps it a bit 
farther northwest...which may keep the threat of rain across 
southeast Kentucky through at least Thursday. However...European model (ecmwf) keeps 
things dry from Wednesday afternoon Onward. Opting to keep some low 
probability of precipitation in the forecast as it may not be impossible to see a wave push 
north...along the boundary...at least temporarily bringing some rain 
showers back into southeast Kentucky. By late in the week...we 
should finally see an end to the rain chances.

Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Friday night) 
issued at 135 am EDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Only high clouds are noted passing over eastern Kentucky. These 
should help limit the fog development until later than is typical 
this night. Fog will primarily be a concern between 09 and 12z at sme 
and sjs where dew point depressions are the lowest. Sjs was kept lowest... 
IFR...due to its location in far east Kentucky...where low level 
moisture has lingered a bit longer owing to the clouds clearing out 
of there late on Thursday. The fog will burn off between 12 and 
13z...with VFR conditions prevailing thereafter. Wind will remain 
light...generally out of the northwest during the day...Friday.
