NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
756 PM EST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Update... 
issued at 756 PM EST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Forecast is on track and nothing to update at this time. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through Saturday night) 
issued at 308 PM EST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Surface high pressure passing over the region tonight into Saturday 
will provide mostly clear skies and lighter winds. 


The elements for a late weekend weather system will be coming 
together over the western Continental U.S. On Saturday...with warm/moist air 
spreading northward on isentropic lift over the Great Plains during 
the day. High clouds from this will be carried eastward and ride over 
an upper level ridge to bring US increasing clouds in the afternoon. 
The surface low will begin to take shape on Saturday night and should 
be over Missouri by 12z Sunday. Models have come into better 
agreement concerning this system...and now point to a more northerly 
track than what looked probable in earlier model runs. This will be 
dealt with in more detail in the long term discussion. This trend in 
the models results in warm air advection setting in on Saturday 
night...and most of the precipitation on Saturday night being to our north and 
northwest. Will only carry 20-40 percent probability of precipitation in the jkl forecast area. Have 
used precipitation type of snow for most of the area...with rain/snow mix 
in our SW. Temperatures in soundings may support more in the way of rain. 
However... the low levels are not saturated in the soundings. If 
precipitation makes it to the ground...would expect some evaporational 
cooling to allow snow. 


Long term...(sunday through friday) 
issued at 412 PM EST Friday Jan 30 2015 


As we head into the extended period...an upper low displaced in the 
southwestern Continental U.S. Ejects a shortwave into the southern plans while 
another wave over the northern stream of the polar front jet moves 
southeast across the upper plains. By Sunday these two features 
merge over the Midwest and move east through the Ohio Valley. At the 
surface...a strong low develops and tracks right along/just north of 
the Ohio River. Models are finally starting to show continuity in 
their runs...which is giving more confidence to the forecast. If the 
GFS holds true based on the last 4 model runs...the center of the 
low will track along and just south of the Ohio River. One thing to 
note however is that the last 2 model runs...12z and 6z today...show 
an increase in the intensity of the low to from 1012mb to 1006mb. 
Even the latest 0z and 12z European model (ecmwf) is in strong agreement with the 
GFS. And though it is towards the end of its run...the nam80 is 
finally starting to show agreement with both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) as 
well...showing 1005mb low tracking along the Ohio River during the 
same time period. The 12z Gem still seems to be too far south with 
the system...so did not use this model in the forecast for this 
event. 


All things considered...if the GFS/ECMWF/NAM tracks do pan out...by 
12z Sunday the precipitation will likely be spreading across the County Warning Area from 
the northwest...quickly encompassing much of the County Warning Area within a few hours. 
While the moist layer will be well below freezing...and surface 
temperatures will be very near the freezing mark...a warm/dry nose just 
above the surface will keep temperatures in the low levels just above the 
surface well above freezing. The shallowness of this dry layer will 
likely result in a quick wetbulbing down to the surface...with 
moisture overcoming and hitting the surface from north to south. 
Given the cold moist layer...despite the warming near the 
surface...expect most of the precipitation to still fall as snow...possibly 
mixing with rain in the far south where the warmest low temperatures will 
occur. Southerly winds at the surface will then allow temperatures to rise 
throughout the day to above freezing in the first 6-7kt feet. This 
should allow enough time for ice crystals to melt as they fall and 
precipitation to change to rain. Temperatures will increase into the 
low to middle 40s across the County Warning Area by the afternoon...with warmest temperatures 
expected in the southern County Warning Area. The cold front itself should pass 
through the region sometime after 6z Monday. At this point...dry air 
will begin working in the upper levels...and much colder air will 
begin filtering in as winds shift to a more nwrly direction in the 
low levels. During this transition...while quantitative precipitation forecast is expected to 
lesson...precipitation will likely quickly transition back from rain to 
frozen precipitation late in the night...near 12z Monday. Note...this is a 
much later transition time than what was previously forecast with a 
slightly more northward track. 


Shallow moisture and light snow is expected to persist throughout 
the day Monday under strong northwest flow. This will lead to upslope flow 
and better chances for accumulating snow amounts across the higher 
terrain. The 6z Tuesday sounding looks to finally pull in enough low 
level dry air to cut off any linger precipitation...though some low clouds 
may continue to linger through the night. Highest quantitative precipitation forecast amounts will 
be across the northern County Warning Area and points just to our 
north...corresponding with the low track as well as the center of 
best qvector convergence. However...upslope flow could lead to 
higher amounts in the higher terrain in the far southeast counties as well. 
All together...generally a half inch or less of snowfall is expected 
Sunday morning and Sunday night into Monday. However...the highest 
terrain above 2500 feet could see between 1 and 2 inches due to the 
upslope flow and temperatures falling more quickly at these higher 
elevations Sunday night. 


By Monday night...the shortwave will have finally transitioned east 
of the region...putting much of the Ohio River valley area in a more 
zonal flow pattern through middle week. Colder air will continue to 
filter into the region...with overnight temperatures Monday night/Tuesday 
morning models sinking down into the low teens in the north...and 
into the upper teens to around 20 in the south. Models lose 
significant agreement by this point...so will have to rely on the 
model blend to come up with a forecast solution. The GFS shows a 
disturbance clipping our far northern counties Wednesday...while the 
other models keep this system well to our north. This is a downgrade 
from previous model runs...and as a result...probability of precipitation have lowered 
compared to the previous forecast. Another system could sweep from 
the northwest to the southeast sometime late Wednesday night and into the day 
Thursday. This will result in precipitation...as well as another burst of 
colder air filtering into the region behind the system. After 
collaborating with the surrounding offices...lowered temperatures 
considerably from what the model blend gave on Thursday based on the 
amount of cold air filtering into the region. Went ahead and 
included some light snowfall amounts Wednesday night and 
Thursday...but this is subject to change to higher or lesser amounts 
as models continue to come into better agreement.

Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Saturday evening) 
issued at 756 PM EST Friday Jan 30 2015 


VFR conditions will continue over the next 24 to 36 hours. Concerns 
to aviation will enter the picture late Saturday night as a storm 
system begins to move into the area.
