NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
638 am EDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


..updated aviation discussion... 


Short term (now through sunday)... 
issued at 300 am EDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


The Ohio River valley will be positioned under amplified northwest flow 
aloft today and most of tonight on the back side of a sharp trough. 
Meanwhile, cold Canadian high pressure will settle over the area. 
This will bring mostly sunny and dry conditions, although we will 
have to endure high temperatures some 15 to 20 degrees below normal 
today. This will leave the Mercury only topping out around 40 in the 
NE and in the mid 40s SW. 


Expect some upper clouds in our west today, however our east should 
be clear and this will allow for dry air to mix down with dew points 
possibly as low as 0-5 above in spots. The afternoon mix down may 
allow for even colder temperatures by dawn on Sunday as the drier 
low levels allow for faster cooling and lower temperature floor. 
Also, the surface high settling over our east and good radiational 
cooling conditions will exist. As a result, have lowered expected 
min temps in the upper teens and low 20s east. Elsewhere, expect low 
and mid 20s. Some upper clouds and a slight wind increase toward 
dawn may keep temps from bottoming out everywhere. If everything 
happens perfectly, record lows at fft (18, 1982) and Lex (17, 1964) 
could come into jeopardy. 


Progressive upper ridging dominates for the first half of Sunday, 
meanwhile surface high pressure will be scooting off to the east. 
The resultant pressure gradient will bring a steady southerly wind 
back to the area with a few gusts up around 25 mph. We'll see 
increasing clouds through the day, however good sunshine early and 
the southerly flow will resultant in a nice warm up back toward (but 
still short of) the normal mark. 1000-850 mb thickness increases 
support a 12-15 degree warmup across the area which will support low 
50s north and northeast, with temps around 60 in our far SW. Most 
other spots should be in the mid and upper 50s. Will watch for 
another dry air mix down in our southeastern County Warning Area on Sunday 
afternoon, however cloud cover may play a role in limiting this 
somewhat. 


Did continue to mention the chance for some shower mainly north of 
I-64 late Sunday afternoon ahead of the next system embedded in the 
northwest flow aloft. The arrival should be late enough that early day 
outdoor activities won't be affected. 


Since hard freezes are occurring right now and again tonight, any 
outdoor plants should be covered or protected. 


Record cold maxes for saturday: 
Mar. 28 forecast 
(year) 
sdf 41 (1916) 44 
Lex 37 (1947) 40 
bwg 39 (1899) 46 


Long term (sunday night through friday)... 
issued at 305 am EDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


A weakening frontal boundary will move through the region Sunday 
night, bringing a good chance for light rains that should end early 
Monday morning. Sref guidance for amounts are around a tenth of an 
inch or less, and this is in line with the consensus of the other 
models. Another front moves through the region Tuesday, but it looks 
to be moisture starved, so have no mentionable pops at this point. 


Wednesday, the GFS brings a shortwave trough across the region with 
enough moisture for some precip. However, the Euro has this feature 
farther southwest and the Gem has the feature aloft but no precip. 
Will carry a slight chance pop for now, with some chance for 
thunder. The models come into better agreement on precip chances for 
Wednesday night and Thursday, as additional disturbances cross the 
region. The action is punctuated by a cold front crossing either 
Thursday night or Friday. 


Temperatures will start off near normal Monday, then go above 
Tuesday through Thursday. Friday's highs will depend on the exact 
timing of that cold frontal passage, so for now have leaned closer 
to climo.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
issued at 639 am EDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


Surface high pressure will build over the area through this taf 
period with prevailing VFR conditions. Expect mostly sunny skies 
today with some upper clouds over bwg and a few clouds possible 
around 4-5 k feet. Expect light north-northeast winds this morning to give way 
to northwest winds this afternoon between 5 and 10 mph. As the surface 
high settles near the area late this evening, expect winds to go 
light and variable. Scattered to broken upper clouds will move in 
toward the end of this forecast cycle with a southeast wind beginning to 
get established.
