NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
311 am EDT Thu Apr 24 2014 


Short term (now through friday)... 
issued at 300 am EDT Thu Apr 24 2014 


Surface high pressure across the eastern Great Lakes and upper-level 
ridging directly over the forecast area will push east today as a 
front approaches from the west. Southerly winds of 10-15 mph and a 
few gusts to around 20 mph today will help usher in warmer 
temperatures when compared to yesterday. Highs this afternoon should 
range from roughly middle 70s to around 80. Clouds will increase 
through the day as the front nears the lower Ohio Valley. 


A low pressure system pushing through the upper Midwest will swing 
the aforementioned cold front through the forecast area tonight. 
Overall, the system has slowed a bit. Showers and storms will 
develop along this front across the middle Mississippi Valley today 
and push east through our area overnight. With marginal instability 
to our west, some of these storms may become severe and form a line 
of convection ahead of the actual front. However, when the line of 
showers and storms reach our area, they should be in a weakening 
state. Still, some gusty winds of 40-50 mph are certainly possible 
with the strongest storms we might see tonight. The best chance of 
the stronger gusts would be along and west of the I-65 corridor, 
particularly along the Kentucky/Tennessee border. As this line weakens and pushes 
east after midnight, some additional development of mainly showers 
will be possible along the actual front. This activity is expected 
to push across the area after midnight and through the pre-dawn 
hours, exiting to our east Friday morning. Temperatures should stay 
mild, with middle 50s for lows. 


Some lingering clouds and precip first thing Friday morning will 
quickly exit east, with a mostly sunny afternoon expected. Westerly 
winds of 12-18 mph and a some gusts of 20-25 mph can be expected. 
Temperatures should top out in the lower to middle 70s Friday 
afternoon. 


Long term (friday night through wednesday)... 
issued at 305 am EDT Thu Apr 24 2014 


Stalling front that originally looked to push into the region Friday 
night/Saturday now looks like it may just make it to our northern 
counties, but it still looks to dissipate as ridging builds in aloft 
for the weekend. We should stay dry and above normal both days. 


Sunday night, a pv anomaly, now over the Gulf of Alaska, will rotate 
into the Central Plains. This system will nudge the upper ridge 
bringing US the dry weekend east and allow for more moisture to get 
into the region. A focus will develop for precipitation in the form 
of a warm front attached to a fairly deep low pressure center 
somewhere over KS/NE. Models, both deterministic and ensemble, are 
in pretty good agreement for this scenario, but they differ on just 
how much precip we would get this far east of that system. The 
blended model forecast looks similar to our ongoing forecast with 
high-end chance (~50%) across the western forecast area and low-end 
chance (~30%) in the Bluegrass. 


On Monday, the frontal zone looks to sharpen, but most of the models 
show our region in the warm sector, continuing to get a feed of 
moisture from the south and keeping in good rain chances. The 12z 
Euro was the farthest south with this frontal zone, allowing much 
cooler air into the northern half of the forecast area. Will 
consider this an outlier for now and keep most of our area above 
normal, especially as the New Run coming in now is more in line with 
the other models. 


The forecast for Monday night through Wednesday continues to look 
wet, as a second pv anomaly retrogrades across the northern Great 
Lakes and becomes wrapped up with the first system, into a large 
gyre over the Midwest by Wednesday. Even though this is an unusual 
pattern, many of the models are showing it. Exact details of the day 
to day forecast are hard to pin down at this point, as we probably 
will have some periods with dry slots working over US, but rain 
chances continue to look good. Our temperatures will depend on how 
far south that upper low settles, so this part of the forecast is 
lower confidence. 


Given the slow motion of the system, may eventually have to deal 
with some flooding issues. For now have quantitative precipitation forecast from 12z Sunday through 
Wednesday at 1.5-2.5".

Aviation (06z taf update)... 
issued at 115 am EDT Thu Apr 24 2014 


VFR conditions are expected through this taf period. High pressure 
currently in control will shift east today as a low pressure system 
approaches from the west. Currently light easterly winds will become 
southeasterly around daybreak and increase to around 10-12 knots 
with a few gusts to around 18 knots or so in the afternoon. Clouds 
will increase through the day and lower tonight as a front and 
associated precipitation nears. Showers and scattered thunderstorms 
will enter the picture for the last 6 hours or so of the sdf taf, so 
will introduce vcsh at this time. Precip at bwg and Lex will occur 
at or after this valid taf period.
