NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
335 PM EST Friday Nov 28 2014 


Short term...(this evening through Saturday night) 
issued at 335 PM EST Friday Nov 28 2014 


Current surface analysis as of 20z shows surface high pressure 
draped along the appalachian chain. This has allowed for dry 
conditions across eastern Kentucky with surface southerly winds 
beginning to set up into the area this afternoon. Northwest flow 
still continues in the upper levels as cloud cover ahead of a 
developing warm front over the middle MS River Valley continues to 
move into eastern Kentucky. This continued middle and upper level cloud 
cover moving into mainly the northern part of the forecast area will 
pose a difficult temperature forecast for tonight as some of the 
deeper eastern valleys will drop off quick early into the night but 
may become steady late. With the coupled insulation from cloud cover 
and increased southwest flow bringing warmer air into the 
area...thinking these Deep Valley lows will not realize their full 
potential with min temperatures despite dew points in in the lower 20s. This 
is also complicated by the developing low level jet ahead of the next 
system and whether it will mix to the surface at times overnight. 
This likely won't happen in the deeper valleys to the east but the 
shallower valleys in the west will be problematic at best. At this 
point will expect most locations in western portions of the forecast 
area to reach their low before 06z and stay mixed nearly all night. 
Locations in the east will reach their lows later in the night with 
middle 20s for lows in the deeper valleys. 


Headed into the day on Saturday with gradient on the increase...model 
soundings show a 50 to 60 knot low level jet developing...some 
locations could see some 30 knot gusts into Saturday afternoon...but 
mainly those higher elevations as the inversion looks to hang around 
a bit longer through the day keeping the stronger winds out of the 
valley areas. Have put these values into the forecast as well. 
Temperatures for Saturday afternoon will be a bit tricky with cloud 
cover hanging around and warmer air being advected into the area. The 
boundary layer will still be quite dry still heading into this event 
as well with dew points still in the low 30s by Saturday afternoon. 
Mentioning the dry air in place for Saturday night...this will be 
present at the surface with quite a dry middle level in place to start 
this event. With a shallow moist layer only up to 800mb and little 
lift making it into eastern Kentucky...expecting only a slight to low 
chance of measurable precipitation to make it into the Bluegrass counties. 
In fact...even the NAM which is usually biased toward being wetter 
shows the low levels struggling to moisten up. Went with low chance 
probability of precipitation into Sunday morning and no quantitative precipitation forecast forecasted. Low temperatures for 
Saturday night will be later in the night and those mainly in the 
valleys as ridge temperatures will be near steady due to increased warm air 
advection. 


Long term...(sunday through friday) 
issued at 335 PM EST Friday Nov 28 2014 


Models have come into much better agreement through the majority of 
the extended period...with the exception being the Thursday/Friday 
time frame. 


At the beginning of the period...continued southerly ll flow helps 
to increase ll moisture across the region. Forecast models continue 
to show some light quantitative precipitation forecast over our west and northwest counties and 
would expect cloudy skies with some patchy drizzle and light rain 
Sunday mainly west and north of Jackson. Moisture deepens Sunday 
night into the day on Monday as a cold front sags into the area and 
rain chances increase. Precipitation associated with the front appears to 
be rain during Monday afternoon/evening before possibly changing to 
a wintry mix or light snow by Tuesday morning...though this depends 
on how quickly the frontal precipitation drops to our south and the timing 
of the cold air mass moving into the region. Fortunately it appears 
that the bulk of the precipitation should be to our south by the time the 
colder air makes it in. 


Southerly flow returns Post-frontal helping to usher in warmer 
temperatures...ll moisture... clouds...and some showers Tuesday night and 
Wednesday. GFS appears to be the wetter of the solutions. However... 
models really start to diverge in their solutions Wednesday so 
forecast confidence is low for any sensible weather for days 6 and 7.

Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Saturday afternoon) 
issued at 1255 PM EST Friday Nov 28 2014 


Much of the area this afternoon and tonight will be under VFR 
conditions with a mainly 7 kft ceiling or later streaming in from the 
northwest. Though a few ceilings may dip to MVFR ceilings but this is 
becoming more unlikely as the cloud layers lift and more middle level to 
upper level cloud cover moves in from the northwest. These conditions 
will likely continue into tonight and into tomorrow afternoon. The 
only real concern will be gusty winds developing out of the southwest 
tomorrow after 14z with some gusts reaching 25 knots.
