NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
311 PM EST Tue Nov 25 2014 


Short term (now through Wednesday night)... 
issued at 302 PM EST Tuesday Nov 25 2014 


..wintry mix possible late Wednesday into Wednesday night... 


The synoptic pattern this afternoon features broad troughing across 
much of the conus, making for temperatures continuing to run below 
normal. A clipper system will dive southeast through the trough 
aloft tomorrow into tomorrow night, bringing the potential for a 
wintry mix to portions of the region. 


Conditions will remain tranquil tonight as high pressure settles 
into the region. High clouds passing across portions of eastern Kentucky 
will likely help keep temperatures up a bit there, otherwise most 
other locations should dip into the mid and upper 20s. 


Wednesday will start off dry as high pressure slowly drifts east of 
the region. However, attention will quickly turn to the northwest 
as a clipper system dives southeast through portions of the Midwest 
and into the Ohio Valley. The left-exit region will help induce a 
tightening mid-level thermal gradient, which should lead to a 
frontogenetically induced band of precipitation. 


The main forecast challenge will be both with the exact track of 
this narrow precip band, along with the thermal profiles beneath 
it. The latest guidance continues its trend of dipping the bulk of 
the precipitation further south into central and southern Kentucky. This 
is not a huge surprise given that this northward placement is a 
known bias in most numerical guidance. With better convergence of 
the model solutions, have gone ahead and upped pops across portions 
of southern KY, while dropping them slightly for portions of 
southern in/northern Kentucky. The hardest challenge with this event will 
be low-level thermal profiles. The good news is that it appears 
surface wet bulb temperatures will remain above zero through the 
event. However, if we get heavy enough rates, it could wet bulb the 
column down just enough to set up a very narrow band of moderate 
snow. Looking at the forcing, it appears to be weakening as it 
enters the Ohio Valley, given a weakening upper-level jet structure 
and the fgen response. Therefore, while a band of moderate 
precipitation will likely still move across portions of 
central/southern KY, not sold it will be long-lived enough to wet 
bulb the column and give widespread snow. Given the surface low 
will also be weakening as it moves into the region, surface cold air 
advection will likely not play too much of a role either. 


Bottom line is that this event will start as rain and remain mostly 
as rain. However, rates may become just enough to wet bulb the 
column and allow for some wet snow to mix in. If this does occur, a 
moderate burst of snow could drop a few tenths of an inch of 
accumulation briefly, before melting again once rates decrease. 
All-in-all, not much, if any, impacts are expected from this event. 


Ahead of the system, highs will climb into the low to mid 40s 
tomorrow (warming ground/Road temps ahead of this event). Behind 
this system, overnight lows tomorrow night will dip into the upper 
20s and lower 30s. 


Long term (thursday through tuesday)... 
issued at 300 PM EST Tue Nov 25 2014 


Thanksgiving day may just be the coldest day of the long term. 
Models had been divergent on a cold front coming into the region for 
the weekend, but now they stall the front to our north Saturday and 
Sunday before slowly pushing it through at some point early next 
work week. That will mean an above normal forecast for temperatures 
this weekend, but also a better chance for rains starting Saturday 
night. The front will be to our north, but warm/moist air riding 
near that front would promote showers and storms over an extended 
period of time, at least into Monday. A lot will depend on the 
location of that front Monday and Tuesday, so will lean towards 
climatology and start decreasing pops by day 7 (tuesday).

Aviation (18z taf update)... 
updated at 1212 PM EST Tue Nov 25 2014 


VFR conditions will persist through the taf period. Strato-cu 
around fl025 continues to slowly sag to the south towards the Ohio 
River. It appears these clouds will remain just north of ksdf, but 
can't completely rule out some MVFR cigs for a time this 
afternoon/evening. Otherwise, generally light winds and partly 
cloudy skies will persist at all sites tonight into early Wednesday 
morning. Clouds will begin to increase ahead of a disturbance 
tomorrow, but all precip and cig/vsby restrictions will hold off 
until after the valid taf period.
