NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
1218 am EST Fri Mar 6 2015 


..updated aviation discussion... 


..Forecast update... 
issued at 915 PM EST Thu Mar 5 2015 


Broken strato-cu has been slow to erode. They extend from near 
Louisville southwards through Glasgow County, and will drift 
southwards over the next several hours. Skies should clear before 
midnight at Louisville and Lexington. Light winds, snow cover and 
clearing skies will promote very cold temperatures overnight with 
subzero temperatures possible a most locations. 


Short term (now through Friday night)... 
issued at 318 PM EST Thu Mar 5 2015 


..bitter cold tonight... 


Once the high clouds in the east move out, and scattered flat 
diurnal cu dissipate, Arctic high pressure advancing from the mid 
Mississippi Valley to the Tennessee Valley will provide US with 
mostly clear/partly cloudy skies, light winds, and cold temperatures 
through the short term. 


The main question is how cold to go tonight. We have up to 25 
inches of fresh snow pack. The high moving in is of Arctic origin 
and will be located directly overhead right at the climatologically 
coldest time of day early Friday morning. Winds will be nearly 
calm. Skies should be mostly clear. This high is progged to be 
slightly stronger than the high that took some locations into the 
-20s on February 20. Low temperatures upstream this morning under 
the high in the northern plains were in the teens below zero, with 
only a few inches of snow on the ground there. 


Sky cover is the biggest source for bust potential tonight. Model 
data are showing low level moisture hanging around through the 
night, but given the strength of the high and the lack of clouds 
associated with it upstream, will lean towards less cloudiness in 
the forecast. 


Given all that, will go for negative teens tonight along the stripe 
of deepest snow cover, which also happens to be located with where 
the northeast-southwest elongated high is expected to line up at 
dawn. Can't rule out a few -20s in the very coldest spots, such as 
the Kentucky mesonet stations in the counties of Ohio, Hardin, 
Franklin, and Harrison. 


Outside of the band of deepest snow, will still go with single digit 
subzero readings. 


We've never seen temperatures this cold in March before, so there is 
no small amount of trepidation with this forecast. It's never easy 
to forecast all-time monthly record lows. If we get more clouds 
than currently predicted, then lows have the potential of being much 
warmer...possibly "just" around zero. 


The high will be a slow mover on Friday, so we really won't get into 
any return flow during the day. As a result, and given the very 
cold start to the day (even if not as cold as currently forecast), 
we went well below guidance for highs, especially in the snowiest 
areas. Will go for low to mid 20s. We'll have plenty of March sun, 
which has done a good job of warming temperatures a few degrees this 
afternoon even with the snow. 


Friday night lows will probably be in the evening, then steadying 
out overnight and possibly rising a bit in southern Indiana. For 
now will go with single digits over the deepest snow pack and teens 
elsewhere. 


Long term (saturday through thursday)... 
issued at 300 PM EST Thu Mar 5 2015... 


..warmer weather on the way!... 


In contrast to weather conditions the past couple of days, the 
extended forecast looks quite benign, with a significant warm up by 
the middle of next week. Snow will melt, and Spring will seem 
closer. 


This weekend, northwest flow aloft will prevail which will keep 
temperatures below normal (normal highs for this time of year are in 
the lower to mid 50s), especially given the ambient deep snow cover. 
Nevertheless, there will be some moderation with afternoon readings 
topping out mostly in the 30s Saturday (except lower 40s near the 
Tennessee border), and in the 40s Sunday afternoon. This is a few 
degrees below model statistical guidance. 


A southern stream system over Texas and the Gulf Coast states Sunday 
and Sunday night could bring limited moisture northward into the 
Tennessee Valley. Models generally keep precip just south of 
Kentucky Sunday night and Monday so will go with a dry forecast in 
most areas. Based on thermal trends, if any precip does fall, it 
should be scattered light rain showers. 


During the first half of next week, flow aloft relaxes and becomes 
more westerly. This will create some downsloping flow and warmer air 
across the plains states. Some of that air should begin to work 
eastward toward the Ohio Valley by mid next week. As a result, dry 
weather is expected Monday thru Thursday in central Kentucky and 
southern Indiana with a continued warming trend. High temps should 
be in the 40s Monday (perhaps 50 near the Tennessee line), in the 
50s Tuesday, mid 50s to lower 60s Wednesday, and probably in the 60s 
Thursday if the forecast pattern holds. 


The GFS and European model (ecmwf) show the next good chance for precip, in the form 
of rain, to be Friday into next weekend (faster ecmwf) or next 
weekend (slower gfs).
