NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
706 am EDT Monday may 4 2015 


Update... 
issued at 701 am EDT Monday may 4 2015 


Forecast seems to be in good shape so far this morning under a 
high pressure regime. Biggest concern over the next few hours will 
be the temperature trends...as Ridge Valley splits subside and 
temperatures quickly climb to 70 by noon. Went ahead and removed 
mention of fog in the grids as well as the zone forecast...as what 
is left out there should be burning off over the next hour or so. 
Daytime mixing should lead to a slight uptick in winds /though 
still light/ and the potential for some isolated daytime 
cumulus...with otherwise very quiet conditions. That being said...no 
other major updates are needed at this time. 


&& 


Short term...(today through tuesday) 
issued at 301 am EDT Monday may 4 2015 


Strong high pressure/ridging will stay in control through the extent 
of the short term. Plan view model output is finally trying to steer 
away from any afternoon convective development...as would make sense 
given the strong lack of moisture across the region. Latest forecast 
soundings are still pointing at just enough moisture to allow for 
some isl/scattered afternoon cumulus development over the next couple of days... 
with the addition of some slight mixing down of winds /still 
generally 10 kts or less/. Did note...however...that over the 
highest terrain...the latest nam12 run has actually moistened up a 
bit for Tuesday afternoon...though think this may still be a bit 
overdone...and near surface dry layer should eliminate any precipitation 
threat. Otherwise... light srly flow and good sun coverage will 
continue to boost temperatures. Expect generally low 80s both 
today and tomorrow for highs...while optimal radiational cooling 
overnight will continue to promote large Ridge Valley splits in 
temperature. This could mean some sizable diurnal temperature 
ranges for valleys between morning lows and daytime highs. 


Long term...(tuesday night through sunday) 
issued at 400 am EDT Monday may 4 2015 


The models remain in good agreement that an upper level ridge 
will generally remain in control across the southeastern Continental U.S. 
Through the first part of the weekend...before shifting east and 
weakening a bit for the latter half of the weekend. There are a 
few differences between the GFS and European model (ecmwf) from Wednesday through 
Friday regarding a weak upper level tropical low that attempts to 
move in from the Carolina coast. The GFS is the most aggressive in 
bringing this feature inland...which would allow for a bit more of 
a weakness in the ridge...perhaps enough to allow for some 
isolated convection across our southeastern terrain counties. The 
European model (ecmwf) keeps the low offshore...which would likely keep a lid on 
convection besides perhaps a stray shower or storm. For now...will 
maintain continuity from the previous forecast and keep the rain 
mention out until Sunday. Temperatures will average well above 
normal through the period...with highs in the low to middle 80s. The 
lows will slowly moderate through the period...starting out in the 
upper 40s in the cooler sheltered valleys Wednesday morning...and 
then low to middle 50s by the end of the week. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Tuesday morning) 
issued at 702 am EDT Monday may 4 2015 


Expect VFR conditions through the period. Included mention of 
some daytime cumulus development and slight mixing down of winds...but 
taf sites should still remain generally below 10 kts. Clouds will 
lift and winds will die down once more by this evening. While 
areas of valley fog are possible by late tonight...do not expect 
taf sites to be affected. 


&& 


Jkl watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
