NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
1116 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Update... 
issued at 1116 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Scattered showers and thunderstorms continue to persist along and 
south of the hal Rogers Parkway and Highway 80 corridors. Have 
accounted for better coverage west of I-75 that is ongoing. The 
mosaic radar reveals more sustained convection still pivoting 
across the western half of Tennessee and the latest higher 
resolution short term guidance continues to advertise a 
diminishing trend to the current activity across our area through 
around midnight...before bringing in more widespread activity 
closer towards dawn. Locally heavy rainfall remains a concern 
overnight...particularly in areas that seen heavy rainfall over 
the past several days...although will forego any added headlines 
for now as the more sustained heavier convection looks to stay 
mainly across Tennessee. Updates have been sent. 


Update issued at 838 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Isolated convection is shrinking in coverage through early this 
evening across our south...although with very little 
movement...some of the cells are putting down some heavy 
localized rainfall. There is still good agreement that these will 
wind down over the next hour or so. A lull in the activity is then 
expected until after midnight...when forcing begins moving in 
from the southwest out ahead of an approaching short wave trough. 
Have timed these higher probability of precipitation a bit later than previously...based 
on a blend of the short term model guidance. Updates have been 
sent. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through Sunday night) 
issued at 257 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Models are in fairly good agreement over the next 36 hours. 
Presently...a stalled frontal boundary remains draped across 
southern Kentucky this afternoon...with isolated to scattered 
showers continuing to develop across the southern third of the 
forecast area. These showers will slowly wind down as instability 
drops off this evening...providing a good lull for outdoor 
festivities this evening. 


However...a shortwave trough over Arkansas and western Tennessee 
will slowly rotate east-northeast tonight and Sunday. This will 
spread clouds and precipitation back into the area from late 
tonight through Sunday. Given the current expected track...there 
will be decent gradient in probability of precipitation across the area into the day 
Sunday with the highest rain chances in southeast 
Kentucky...dropping off as you head northwest towards Lexington. 
Given the good lift and moisture in place...have bumped probability of precipitation up 
to categorical across south/southeast Kentucky late tonight 
through Sunday. Overall...lapse rates aren't that great...so 
thunder may not occur...but left an isolated thunderstorm in the 
forecast given the time of year. Precipitation and cloud cover 
will keep highs down on Sunday. 


By Sunday night...this wave should finally make its move to the 
east/northeast...with rain chances decreasing overnight. May keep 
clouds around through the night...so another night of lows in the 
60s. 


Long term...(monday through saturday) 
issued at 335 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


The period is expected to begin with a weak upper level low 
gradually shifting north and east of the region and merging with a 
trough approaching the northern and western Great Lakes region. A 
surface boundary will also approach the Ohio Valley by midweek as the 
upper trough moves through Ontario and the Great Lakes and into 
Quebec and the northeastern Continental U.S.. heights are projected to rise 
across the southeast during the second half of the week which will 
keep the boundary or its remnants generally stalled out over the 
Ohio Valley region or only slowly sagging south into eastern Kentucky 
through the end of the period. 


This pattern should result in unsettled and at times wet weather 
across eastern Kentucky. Probability of precipitation will have a general diurnal flavor for 
most of the period...although with the front stalling out in the 
vicinity...convection cannot be ruled out at any point. The best 
chance for rain appears to be at midweek when the front is 
expected to start to stall near the Ohio River. Temperatures should 
also remain close to...if not slightly below normals...for highs 
and near normal for lows. Temperatures may warm a bit at the the 
period...pending the strength of the ridge across the southeastern 
states. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Sunday evening) 
issued at 838 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


VFR conditions will likely hold across the area through the first 
part of the overnight...as isolated convection winds down and 
lower clouds scatter out. Ceilings will then lower from southwest 
to northeast between 06 and 12z...out ahead of an approaching 
upper level disturbance. MVFR/IFR ceilings will move in with rain 
showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms...especially along and 
south of a line from sme to pbx. Conditions will gradually 
improve late Sunday afternoon.
