Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 10:45 PM EDT on September 16, 2014


... Areas of dense fog expected overnight...

Clearing skies... light winds... and ample low level moisture will lead
to fog formation across eastern Kentucky tonight. Areas of dense fog
will be seen across the area through daybreak... especially in many of
the valley areas. Visibilities will be sharply reduced to a quarter
of a mile or less at times... especially in low lying areas and near
bodies of water. The fog will gradually lift and burn off between 9
and 10 am Wednesday morning.

Motorists should be on alert for sudden changes in visibility over
short distances... and allow extra space between vehicles when
traveling in fog. Also be sure to slow down and use low beam
headlights while driving in fog.

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
325 am EDT Wednesday Sep 17 2014 


Short term...(today through thursday) 
issued at 325 am EDT Wednesday Sep 17 2014 


Surface high pressure over the Great Lakes continues to provide quiet 
weather across eastern Kentucky this morning. A layer o stratus 
continues to develop across much of southeast Kentucky as moisture 
remains trapped below a subsidence inversion. Initially...skies had 
cleared overnight allowing for some patchy dense valley fog. 
However..since then...stratus has taken over and is now limited the 
fog in the valleys. Still a few pockets of clearing out there...but 
even these seem to be filling in. Thus...going to downplay the fog a 
bit into the morning. May maintain the dense fog on the ridges as the 
stratus continues to build down overnight. However...fog may be less 
of a concern in the valleys. 


Fog/stratus will lift/burn off fairly by middle morning...with sunshine 
returning to the area. This will help temperatures warm to around 70 
this afternoon. Some middle level clouds will drift across the area 
tonight...and could impact possible fog formation. However...at this 
time...should not be enough to keep fog from forming...so will plan 
to beef up the fog mention tonight. Quiet weather will continue 
through Thursday with highs a degree or two warmer. 


Long term...(thursday night through tuesday) 
issued at 325 am EDT Wednesday Sep 17 2014 


There is good model agreement that an overall amplified pattern will 
be on tap for the Continental U.S. Through the period. Initially...troughing 
will be found across the eastern and western Continental U.S....with ridging in 
the middle of the nation. In general...the upper level flow pattern 
will temporarily flatten out by the end of the workweek...with the 
ridge expanding more into the Mississippi Valley and the West Coast 
trough gradually breaking down. By the weekend...ridging will be 
amplifying across The Rockies...while troughing takes shape across 
the Great Lakes...eventually expanding into the Ohio Valley and New 
England through early next week. 


For eastern Kentucky...generally dry weather will rule through the 
first half of the weekend as we will be under the influence of 
modest ridging aloft. Temperatures will be warming through the 
period...with highs building back to near seasonal normals by the 
weekend. On Sunday...a cold front will approach as a deepening 
trough moves into the Great Lakes. The models have been varying with 
the timing and intensity with this system...and expect future runs 
to continue this trend...so will stick with the continuity that the 
blended solution offers. The best chance of precipitation continues 
to look in the Sunday afternoon to early Monday morning time frame. 
Temperatures will return back to below normal by early next 
week...with highs in the low to middle 70s...and lows back into the 40s 
possibly by Tuesday night depending on clearing.

Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Wednesday night) 
issued at 149 am EDT Wednesday Sep 17 2014 


Stratus continues to develop and slowly build down. This will 
continue through daybreak...with the ridge tops really getting socked 
in over the next few hours. Fog may be more sporadic in the valleys 
and not quite as dense. However...given many of the Ridgetop 
airports...this will bring many spots below Airport minimums late 
tonight. Fog/stratus will begin to lift/burn off after sunrise...but 
may take a good 2 to 3 hours before this process is complete. We 
should see a return to VFR conditions for all areas by late morning.
