The National Weather Service in Jackson KY has extended the

* Flood Warning for...
Laurel County in south central Kentucky...
Knox County in southeastern Kentucky...
Whitley County in south central Kentucky...
central Bell County in southeastern Kentucky...

* until 500 am EST Friday

* at 420 PM EST... flooding of creeks and streams feeding into the

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
1005 PM EST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Update... 
issued at 1005 PM EST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Lingering flurries continue to show up on WSR-88D radar this 
evening across the southeast tonight...as upper level frontogenesis 
has provided just enough lift to keep flurries going. Given light 
nature would expect little if any accumulations from this. High 
pressure has continued to build across the region tonight. This is 
setting the stage for cold night across the eastern Kentucky...as 
temperatures in several spots have already dropped into the single 
digits. The forecast thus far looks on track with minor update 
needed for latest observation and trends. 


Update issued at 734 PM EST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Evening surface analysis shows the complex storm system that 
brought heavy snowfall and mixed precipitation to the region continuing 
to push east along the Atlantic coast this evening...meanwhile 
high pressure is building east into eastern Kentucky. This has 
continued to bring clearing skies to the much of the region and 
temperatures have already fallen into the teens this evening. 
Temperatures are expected to continue to plummet overnight as 
clear skies and calm winds combine with snowpack. WSR-88D radar 
does continue to indicate some returns across the far southeast portions 
of eastern Kentucky. These returns are translating to mostly flurries 
and are expected to continue to exit as upper level forcing 
continues to exit east. Updated grids to reflect latest observation and 
trends...otherwise no major changes needed with this update. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through Friday night) 
issued at 304 PM EST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


One last band of snow is just about to slip south of the area with 
the rest of the area mainly seeing just flurries now. Skies are 
clearing...but just a tad slower than previously expected. 
High pressure will build into the area tonight and center itself 
over the area by late tonight. This will set the stage for a cold 
night as all the ingredients are coming together. We have the 
fresh snow...clear skies...and light winds and this will allow for 
good radiational cooling. Lows tonight will likely fall below zero 
in most places with some areas under the deeper snowpack in the 
north possibly reaching the teens below zero. Any sheltered valley 
location could reach the teens below zero as well. With the wet 
and snow covered roads...will continue an Special Weather Statement through early 
tomorrow morning addressing the slick roads and refreezing 
tonight. 


Sunshine will return in full force on Friday...but given the cold 
start...best we can do for highs will be upper 20s to lower 30s. 
We should radiate well again Friday night with valley locations 
again into the single digits to lower teens. Fortunately...the 
weather will remain dry through Friday night...allowing rivers to 
recede. 


Long term...(saturday through thursday) 
issued at 304 PM EST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Surface high pressure and dry conditions will dominate through most 
of the extended period where the biggest challenge is forecasting 
temperatures over the snowpack...especially north of I-64 where 10- 
15 inches of snow has fallen. So have kept this in mind and adjusted 
temperatures down a bit during the early portion of the forecast period. 


The bigger story for next week is a Big Warm up for eastern 
Kentucky. The upper level pattern will flatten out over the eastern 
Continental U.S. Early next week as higher heights build into the region...and 
along with south/southwesterly flow...will help temperatures moderate back 
to seasonable levels. An active southern stream will allow for a 
series of disturbances to pass through our area...bringing a chance 
for precipitation at times from Monday morning through the end of 
the period. If precipitation occurs during that period...the majority of it 
should fall as rain. Keep in mind that models are in disagreement as 
to when and how much rain we will receive so have kept only slight 
chance/chance probability of precipitation during that time frame. 


With temperatures in the 50s beginning on Tuesday...and possibly 
reaching the lower 60s on Wednesday... a gradual snowmelt will occur 
throughout the week. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Friday evening) 
issued at 652 PM EST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Most sites are quickly clearing out to VFR this evening as high 
pressure builds east into eastern Kentucky. Sjs is still seeing 
the back edge of the snow and will quickly come up to MVFR/VFR 
over the next couple of hours as the snow moves east...otherwise 
high pressure will crest across the region overnight into Friday 
leading to clear skies and calm winds.
