NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
724 PM EDT Wed Jul 30 2014 


..forecast update... 
Issued at 722 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


Was able to remove the small sliver of slight chance pops acros our 
northwest County Warning Area as current radar trends show weakening/diminishing showers. 
Was also watching a few blips on radar across west central Kentucky that 
formed on a differntial heating boundary from sky cover across our 
SW. However, these very isolated showers will no longer be a threat 
after the loss of daytime heating, so will not mention. Forecast is 
on track tonight with the only other update being current obs. 


Short term (now through Thursday night)... 
issued at 250 PM EDT Wed Jul 30 2014 


The synoptic pattern this afternoon features an unusually amplified 
pattern for late July, with a large trough across the Great Lakes 
region and an upstream ridge across the western Continental U.S.. this pattern 
will persist through the short term period, keeping seasonably cool 
conditions in place. 


A pv anomaly was diving through the mean upper trough this afternoon 
across in and Northern Ohio. The ascent associated with this 
feature has helped to trigger some showers and thunderstorms across 
portions of central Indiana and southern Ohio. As the system 
continues to dive southeast, it may just be enough to spark an 
isolated shower or rumble of thunder across the northern Bluegrass. 
However, given only marginal low-level moisture and the main upper 
cold core off staying off to the north, think most places will 
remain dry. 


Clouds will diminish with sunset this evening, resulting in another 
clear and cool night. Went close to persistence for low 
temperatures tonight, which once again puts them in the mid to upper 
50s, with the heat-island cities staying in the lower 60s. 


On Thursday and especially into Thursday night, we will likely see a 
bit more upper-level cloud cover push into southern and central Kentucky. 
This cloudiness will be in association with a weak system meandering 
across the southeast. Given the dry airmass remaining in place near 
the surface, think any precip that may fall in the warm-air 
advection regime Thursday night will likely not reach the ground, 
thus will continue with a dry forecast. 


Long term (friday through wednesday)... 
issued at 300 PM EDT Wed Jul 30 2014 


August weather begins looking just like much of July with below 
normal temperatures and little significant accumulation of 
precipitation. 


Despite some decay of the persistent upper level western U.S. Ridge 
and eastern U.S. Trough, little in the way of active weather will 
occur during the extended period. That doesn't mean there will be 
no precipitation, but don't look for widespread moisture to fill the 
accumulated precip deficit that's starting to show up across much of 
the area. 


Shower/thunder chances will first return by midday Friday, then 
linger through Saturday night. The highest pops during this time - 
are Saturday night as the long wave trough axis starts to press 
eastward. All models are in decent agreement on this, but with the 
Standard variations on timing and location, will only go with a 
broadbrush of 30-40 pops for now. Given recent trends, it would not 
be surprising to see this go through the forecast area without a 
drop in some locations, while a few lucky sites get enough to keep 
things green. 


Partly to mostly cloudy skies will cover the forecast throughout the 
period, and while dewpoints will rise into the lower to mid 60s, 
they should not go any higher, so the dog days of August will be 
late to arrive. Temperatures will hover just below seasonal norms, 
which run from the mid to upper 60s for lows and the mid to upper 
80s for highs this time of year.

Aviation (00z taf update)... 
issued at 705 PM EDT Wed Jul 30 2014 


The taf sites are expected to remain under the influence of an 
expansive upper trough through this forecast cycle, however high 
pressure at the surface and a relative lack of moisture should be 
enough to keep things VFR. The one exception looks to be a brief 
period of MVFR possible at Lex toward dawn. Forecast model guidance 
actually promotes fog at all taf sites, however crossover t's appear 
too low at sdf/bwg, and are only marginally supportive at Lex. Other 
than the brief MVFR at Lex, expect only a few clouds over night with 
light and variable or calm winds. A light gradient out of the SW 
will pick up on Thursday, with scattered cu around 5 k feet and some 
upper level clouds.
