NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
734 PM EST Friday Nov 21 2014 


Update... 
issued at 733 PM EST Friday Nov 21 2014 


Just issued a new set of zones featuring changes made to the 
temperature forecast for next Thursday...Thursday night and Friday 
time period. The temperatures we had in the forecast before for this 
part of the forecast period were at least 6 to 7 degrees warmer than 
some of our neighbors. The dew points and weather grids were also 
reran based on the new temperatures. 


Update issued at 635 PM EST Friday Nov 21 2014 


The forecast has been on track so far this evening...so no update is 
planned at this time. However...some of our forecast grids for next 
Thursday and Thursday night are quite a bit out of sync with some of 
our neighbors...so some adjustments will be made to correct this 
issue later in the shift...along with any other necessary updates. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through Saturday night) 
issued at 335 PM EST Friday Nov 21 2014 


Surface high pressure passing over the region today will move to our 
east tonight...with warm air advection beginning as low level flow 
turns to the south. Isentropic lift in the warm air advection will 
also bring some clouds to the region late tonight and Saturday... 
especially in our far northwest counties. However...model trends suggest 
that any precipitation should remain northwest of the jkl forecast area. An 
upper low/shortwave trough over the far SW corner of the Continental U.S. Today 
will move to Texas Saturday night...before then turning NE and phasing 
with a northern stream system catching up with it. This system will 
just be starting to take shape at the end of the period...and will 
result in increasing clouds and an increase in low level flow for our 
local area. It still appears that precipitation with this system will hold 
off until after Saturday night. 


That being said...temperatures could be the trickiest part of the 
short term period. Our first night will start out with a typical 
diurnal downturn in temperatures...with valleys leading the way. 
However...as low level flow increases during the night...ridges as 
well as open terrain in the western part of the forecast area should 
see temperatures level off or even rise overnight. Clouds in the far northwest 
toward dawn will also aid in this trend. Meanwhile...valleys in the 
east will likely maintain their cold readings overnight...or even 
continue to fall very slowly. Exactly where the transition from one 
temperature regime to the other occurs will be very difficult to 
delineate. Skies becoming partly to mostly sunny on Saturday...along 
with temperatures aloft continuing to warm...will allow for a substantial 
warm-up to near normal readings. The temperature forecast for 
Saturday night will pose essentially the same challenges as tonight... 
except low level flow will become stronger...and clouds will be on 
the increase not only in the northwest but also in the SW part of the area. 


Long term...(sunday through friday) 
issued at 335 PM EST Friday Nov 21 2014 


Upper level shortwave is expected to be centered near and around the 
arklatex region by Sunday morning. This upper level feature will 
track NE as it begins to phase with the long wave trough located in 
the western US early next week. This will continue to deepen a 
associated surface low that will track NE into the middle Mississippi 
River valley. Attendant warm front will continue to surge north 
through the day Sunday. The 06z GFS continues to move precipitation in 
slower while the 00z European model (ecmwf)/06 NAM are a bit faster. Previous forecast 
had a gradient and leaned that direction given that it is a decent 
compromise to some of the timing differences that have been seen. 
There could be a downslope component to this system as mentioned in 
previous discussion...however I think this would be translated more 
in the quantitative precipitation forecast. Therefore plan to put higher probability of precipitation in the forecast for 
Sunday afternoon since rain does look at least likely. Rain will die 
off Sunday night as warm front continues to move north of the region. 
This warm front does finally bring some slightly above normal high 
temperatures across the County Warning Area Sunday. 


Moving into Monday expect a cold front to cross the region through 
the day. Given drier air filtering in aloft lighter quantitative precipitation forecast and pop 
amounts will be more slight to chance side. Given decent mixing and 
strong upper level jet across the region will lead to a breezy day 
across the region. Surface high begins to nudge east as we move into 
Tuesday with generally deep trough moving across much of the eastern 
US. Models do come into better agreement on disturbance later 
Wednesday into Thursday. At this time will stick close to model 
consensus which brings slight probability of precipitation across that region. After this 
European model (ecmwf) develops a surface low across the southern Mississippi River 
valley and brings it NE into the Ohio Valley by late Friday. While 
the GFS has a reflection of this much later in the model run. Again 
given uncertainty will stick close to blend which gives more in the 
way of slight to chance probability of precipitation into Friday. Overall temperatures are 
expected to remain below normal from Tuesday through the rest of the 
long term.

Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Saturday evening) 
issued at 635 PM EST Friday Nov 21 2014 


VFR conditions and winds less than 10kts are expected through the 
period. We will see flucuations in cloud cover from time to time as 
a weak warm front passes by on Saturday...but nothing more than that 
is expected during the taf period at this time.
