NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
938 PM EDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Update... 
issued at 938 PM EDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Quit the range with temperatures this evening. Eastern valleys have 
fallen as low as the middle to upper 40s while the rest of the region 
remains in the middle 50s to low 60s. Tried to reflect these differences 
better in the temperature forecast tonight and open up the range expected in 
overnight lows. High clouds streaming north from the deep south will 
likely stall the temperature drop in the valleys later tonight so will trim 
back the patchy frost mention to just our far northeastern valleys. 
No other changes were needed. Have a good night... 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through Friday night) 
issued at 258 PM EDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


The models are in good agreement for the short term. This evening 
starts out with a high pressure ridge to the east of the area and a 
a short wave and associated cold front approaching from the west. As 
the front moves across the area tomorrow it will be falling apart. 
The models seem to be focusing the energy on the southern stream with 
a system that will pass well to the south of the area. The front 
should pass with little fanfare. The winds will shift...the clouds 
will increase a little and there will not be much change in temperature. 
High pressure will build back in behind the front. 


The air across the area today has been much drier than what was being 
indicated in the models. As such...the radiational cooling will be 
more efficient and it will cause the temperatures to fall more tonight 
than what the models are indicating. This should allow for some 
patchy valley frost to form tonight. It should not be widespread 
enough to deserve an advisory. 


Long term...(saturday through thursday) 
issued at 258 PM EDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Models solutions are in reasonable agreement through the extended 
period. Shortwave ridging aloft and surface high pressure moving 
across the Great Lakes region will keep our weather dry and 
pleasantly warm through the weekend with or near perfect Spring like 
weather. 


Southern stream upper level trough and corresponding surface 
low/frontal boundary will begin to impact our weather as early as 
late Monday as this system rolls though the plains and into the 
Great Lakes...Ohio Valley region. To date this system has appeared 
disorganized. But possible phasing in part with a northern stream 
trough by early Tuesday may help increase the organization and in 
turn the threat of rain. At this time timing and strength of upper level 
features suggest that we could not rule out at least a few pop up 
showers late Monday...in line with National guidance and neighbors. 
Forecast soundings do show a cap at about h800...a bit weaker in the 
west and stronger in the east...which may inhibit activity through 
much of the day Monday. But height falls are such that the cap may 
weaken enough by late in the day to allow for some pop ups. Also... 
there is enough surface based instability that anything that may 
fire has the potential to develop into a thunderstorm. Felt it 
prudent to reintroduce at least a slight pop in the west by Monday 
afternoon for this potential. Will keep inherited dry weather in the 
east until very late afternoon/early evening...when forecast soundings 
show cap generally being lifted out. Better threat of rain arrives 
Monday night into Tuesday as the northern stream upper level trough 
moving out of the upper Midwest catches up to the southern stream 
disturbance...with the possibility of some phasing taking place. 
Thereafter...ridging aloft and surface high pressure builds back into 
the area to provide a couple of days of fair...warm weather to 
finish out the extended forecast. 


Temperatures through the period will generally run above normal with 
afternoon highs in the 70s and overnight lows in the 50s.
