NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
1020 am EST Tue Jan 27 2015 


..forecast update... 
Issued at 1020 am EST Tue Jan 27 2015 


Morning satellite imagery indicates mostly cloudy skies across the 
forecast area this morning. Some breaks in the clouds were noted 
over our far SW County Warning Area and our far NE County Warning Area. Expect the cloudiness 
upstream to keep things mostly cloudy into the early afternoon 
hours, before clouds start to mixout this evening and into the 
overnight hours. National Weather Service and Kentucky mesonet observations show temperatures 
in the lower-mid 20s in the NE with upper 20s to the lower 30s out 
in the central and SW County Warning Area. With more cloud cover expected, not 
anticipating much in the way of a temperature rise today with 
readings staying in the upper 20s to around 30 in the NE with 
Lower-Middle 30s elsewhere. 


Precipitation this morning has continued to wind down as well with 
little in the way of reflectivity from other radars. We could still 
have a few pockets of freezing drizzle out there, but they will 
likely be very few and far between. As a result, the traveler's 
advisory has been allowed to expire. 


Short term (now through wednesday)... 
issued at 302 am EST Tue Jan 27 2015 


Light snow and patchy freezing drizzle will push through the region 
early this morning, with little more than a few flurries and a few 
patches of very light freezing drizzle left over after the sun 
rises. Clouds will persist through much of the morning, but should 
begin to break up this afternoon as drier air moves in. Though 
temperatures will be in the upper 20s early this morning, helping to 
Foster slick spots on untreated roadways, we should make it into the 
middle and upper 30s most at most locations this afternoon (maybe 
only lower 30s in the northern blue grass). Winds will be light 
from the north. 


High pressure advancing from Chicago to Pittsburgh will provide US 
with mostly clear/partly cloudy skies and light winds tonight and 
Wednesday. It will be quite chilly when the sun comes up Wednesday 
morning, with readings ranging from 11 to 16 in the Blue Grass to 17 
to 22 west of I-65. 


Long term (wednesday night through monday)... 
issued at 310 am EST Tue Jan 27 2015 


The start of the long term period is expected to feature weak upper 
level ridging Wed night across the Ohio and Tennessee valleys while 
the East Coast trough begins to move offshore. Upstream, we'll be 
watching a quick moving shortwave trough coming out of the upper 
Midwest. At the surface, high pressure likely will be centered along 
The Spine of the Appalachians. 


The 27.00z guidance is in reasonable agreement taking the 
aforementioned upper Midwest shortwave through the lower Great Lakes 
Thursday, keeping the local area with southerly flow Wednesday 
night. Eventually, saturation and lift will begin to win out and 
combined with the dry and sub freezing low levels may allow 
precipitation to initially fall as a light wintry mix across 
northeast Kentucky before the low level temperatures warm into the upper 
30s to low 40s. Overall, the best moisture/lift reside in the 
low/mid levels and much of the precipitation should be on the 
lighter side. The best timing for rain showers looks to be Thursday 
morning to early/mid afternoon. The cold front pushes through the 
area Thursday afternoon/evening and colder air begins to filter in 
in its wake. We'll have to watch for a brief changeover to wintry 
precipitation on the back edge but this may end up being more of a 
drizzle situation as there's a lack of saturation above 850 mb /-5c/. 


Northerly to northeasterly flow will then prevail Thursday night 
into Friday as Canadian high pressure builds in from the northwest. 
Lingering moisture could be trapped within the low level inversion, 
keeping clouds in place Thursday night and into parts of Friday. 
Otherwise, plan on lows in the upper 20s to lower 30s and highs 
Friday to range from the mid to upper 30s. For Saturday, there's 
good consensus we'll have weak zonal flow aloft with cool Canadian 
high pressure at the surface. Likely to see increasing high clouds 
from the west associated with the next storm system. Highs are 
forecast to top out in the upper 30s to mid 40s. 


Potential wintry weekend storm system: 


An active upper level flow late in the weekend could bring wintry 
precipitation to the Ohio and Tennessee valleys. Split southern/northern 
stream pieces of energy will traverse the Central Plains while a 
surface low takes shape somewhere along the Gulf Coast. 


The 27.00z GFS came in much warmer than its previous run thanks to a 
stronger and more northwesterly surface low track /through 
north-central KY/. This scenario would support an all-liquid event. 
Meanwhile, the Gem remained the southern outlier, keeping the 
surface low across al/GA. This solution would result in snow for 
most, with rain/snow line closer to the Tennessee border. Finally, the 
European model (ecmwf) lies in the middle, bringing the surface low through middle Tennessee 
and a rain/snow line somewhere across central/northern Kentucky. For now, 
leaned toward the European model (ecmwf) for a compromise, which blends well with the 
previous forecast and neighboring offices. 


However, a time trend analysis shows that the deterministic models 
are struggling with this system, placing synoptic features all 
across the Ohio/Tennessee valleys. Precipitation type/timing/intensity 
confidence is well below average at this point. Given the 
uncertainties, will still advertise the rain/snow mix possibilities 
late Saturday through early Monday. Despite the lower confidence, 
this system still has the potential to bring winter weather to the 
region, so keep updated to the latest forecasts.

Aviation (12z taf update)... 
issued at 617 am EST Tue Jan 27 2015 


Freezing drizzle and flurries have been showing signs of dissipating 
over the last hour or two and this trend is expected to continue. 
Terminals should only have to deal with the very light wintry mix 
for the first one to three hours of the taf period. After that, 
ceilings will gradually improve, becoming VFR at sdf and Lex by mid 
day and bwg by this evening. High pressure sliding by to our north 
will give US clear skies tonight.
