..Forecast update... 
issued at 615 am EDT Mon Oct 20 2014 


A narrow line of showers has developed over southern Indiana ahead 
of an approaching pv anomaly from the northwest. These light showers will 
continue to push east across the northern half of the County Warning Area through 
the morning. Have increased chances to likely (60-70% coverage) 
along a narrow axis in southern in and northern Kentucky to account. The 
highest pops will roughly be along and several miles either side of 
the I-64 corridor. Areas north and south of this region can expect 
isolated to widely scattered light rain showers through the morning 
and early afternoon. 


Refer to the 20/00z or 20/06z NAM or recent runs of the hrrr as they 
appear to have a good handle on what will transpire with light rain 
today. 


Short term (now through tuesday)... 
issued at 305 am EDT Mon Oct 20 2014 


Things are quiet across the County Warning Area at this hour, with only some mid and 
upper level sky cover in place, and temperatures running in the low 
and mid 40s. Will watch chances for isolated to scattered rain 
showers increase over the next few hours ahead of a pv anomaly 
diving in from the upper Midwest. Light rain showers have already 
begun to organize from Northwest Indiana through southern Missouri ahead of 
this feature, and expect a cluster of these showers to mainly focus 
over southern Indiana and northern Kentucky later this morning. Less 
impressed with measurable rain chances across south central Kentucky where 
there will be less moisture and more displaced from the best 
forcing. Can't rule out an isolated sprinkle, but think measurable 
rain will be hard to come by. Will see temperatures warm to the mid 
and upper 60s today on a steady SW wind, despite the lack of strong 
solar insolation. 


Will keep an chances for an isolated shower in across the far NE 
into the late evening hours where deep moisture will be most 
impressive. Things should dry out after midnight. Will see milder 
lows tonight under cloud cover and a somewhat mixy near-surface 
environment. 


Will have one more shot at isolated light rain showers across our NE 
on Tuesday morning as another wave dives into the mean trough over 
the eastern conus, and combines with the lingering low level 
moisture. Most spots will stay dry this day with a fairly sizable 
temperature gradient across the County Warning Area. Look for upper 50s NE to mid to 
upper 60s SW. 


Long term (tuesday night through sunday)... 
issued at 300 am EDT Mon Oct 20 2014 


An extended period of tranquil Fall weather is on the way, with no 
precip chances in the forecast through Sunday. The middle of the 
week will feature shortwave ridging aloft, but Canadian surface high 
pressure will be drawn southward behind a slowly departing East 
Coast low. This will keep out temps below normal for most of the 
work week. Coldest mornings will be Thursday with the surface ridge 
axis directly over the Ohio Valley, and Friday as favorable 
radiational cooling conditions persist. More sheltered/rural 
locations could see lows in the 30s, and frost can't be ruled out 
either. 


By the weekend, the next upper shortwave trof will weaken as it 
heads into the Great Lakes, and with precipitable water values 
barely touching climo, the only sensible weather impact will likely 
be an increase in cloud cover. Temps will recover to near or above 
climo as upper ridge starts to build from the SW, but that could be 
limited by north-NE low-level flow depending on how strongly the surface 
high is reinforced by the weakening upper impulse. Current forecast 
is more in line with the raw model consensus, but if the upper 
ridging wins out extended GFS MOS highs in the 70s could be the way 
to go.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
updated at 648 am EDT Mon Oct 20 2014 


Expecting VFR conditions to prevail outside of any rain showers, 
however sdf/Lex will have the best shot at some brief MVFR 
visibilities in moderate rain this morning. A fairly solid line of 
showers has developed over southern Indiana ahead of an upper level 
disturbance and will slide across sdf/Lex through the morning. Best 
timing at sdf should be between 8 and 10 am EDT, and the best timing 
at Lex should be between 9 am and 1 PM EDT. Ceilings are expected to 
remain VFR. 


Bwg will have a shot an an isolated shower or two, however coverage 
should be less so will only mention vcsh for now. Otherwise, expect 
steady SW winds up between 10 and 15 mph later this afternoon.
