Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
345 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014 


Short term...(this evening through Wednesday night) 
issued at 345 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014 


19z surface analysis shows high pressure over the Midwest and into the 
Ohio Valley. This is all beneath a deep upper level low spinning 
north of the Great Lakes. With that low aloft...cooler temperatures 
just off the surface are also inducing strato cumulus across the area further 
helping to keep temperatures on the cool side today. In fact... 
several spots may have record low maximum temperatures today not far 
from 70 degrees. Temperatures at 19z vary from the middle 60s north of 
the mountain Parkway to the lower 70s in the far south. Dewpoints are 
generally in the lower and middle 50s with light north to northwest 
winds noted. On radar...a few sprinkles may be making it to the 
ground over far eastern parts of the County Warning Area...but for the most part any 
discernible showers are confined to western portions of West 
Virginia. The clouds are gradually clearing out...setting the stage 
for another unseasonably cool night. 


The models remain in good agreement aloft through the short term. 
They all depict the deep trough and closed low over the Hudson Bay 
covering the eastern half of the nation and holding in place as a 
pivot south of its core takes place. This will reach near the 
international border by Thursday morning. For the Ohio Valley this 
means continued low heights with northwest flow...but little in the 
way of decent shortwaves running through this part of the trough to 
affect east Kentucky. Given the model agreement...will continue to 
favor the higher resolution solutions from the hrrr and nam12. 


Sensible weather will feature another chilly night...for late July... 
that will benefit from mostly clear skies allowing for good 
radiational cooling. This setup will favor the valleys for the colder 
temperatures and keep the ridges...above the thermal belt...a notch milder. 
Have set up the low temperature grid tonight...and to a similar 
extent Wednesday night...for this. In addition...anticipate some 
patchy to widespread fog developing toward dawn in the valleys both 
nights. For Wednesday proper...with the core of the upper low 
approaching...the nam12 spits out some light precipitation in our north. This 
is a reasonable possibility...so have included a small chance for 
showers from Wednesday afternoon into the first part of the evening 
in our far northern counties. Given the cool middle level temperatures and 
steep lapse rates...would not rule out a stray Bolt of lightning... 
but for now will leave it as just slight chances for showers in the 
grids and zones. 


Again used the consshort...and its British Columbia version...as a starting point 
for the T...TD...and wind grids through the first 24 hours and the 
consall suite for the remainder of the short term. Made some 
adjustments to low temperatures tonight and Wednesday night to better 
reflect the expected ridge to valley splits. As for probability of precipitation...outside of 
Wednesday afternoon...kept them sub 14 percent for the short term 
forecast period. During Wednesday afternoon the probability of precipitation ended up closer 
to the wetter met numbers. 


Long term...(thursday through tuesday) 
issued at 345 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014 


Anomalous upper level trough will remain in place across the eastern 
U.S. Through the period...although it will deamplify by early next 
week leaving our area in northwest flow aloft. This upper level 
setup will ensure a continuation of below normal temperatures 
through the long term period. The cold front now stalled along the 
Gulf and Atlantic coasts to our south will waffle around being a 
focus for showers and thunderstorms. 


The period will start out dry on Thursday...but become increasingly 
unsettled late Thursday night into the day on Friday as our low 
level flow becomes southeasterly transporting Atlantic moisture 
westward. Focusing mechanisms are diffuse and weak...so the net 
result should be daily chances of showers and thunderstorms from 
Friday through the weekend but mainly focused during the afternoon 
and evening hours. Rain chances then decrease into early next week 
as surface high pressure edges into the region from the northwest 
pushing the deeper moisture back to our east.

Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Wednesday afternoon) 
issued at 225 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014 


Ceilings...where they exist...are now above MVFR so that has simplified 
the tafs through the first part of the night as the clouds continue 
to trend toward clearing. The lack of substantial cloud cover tonight 
should yield good radiational cooling and valley fog formation. For 
this...have allowed some MVFR fog at jkl and sjs and a time of IFR 
conditions at loz and sme between 07 and 13z. The fog will burn off 
shortly after dawn with any ceilings near 4k feet. Cannot rule out a 
stray shower across the north by midday Wednesday...but this will not 
affect any taf sites. Winds will remain rather light out of the north 
and northwest through the period.
