Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
431 am EDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Short term...(today through thursday) 
issued at 306 am EDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Stratus continues to develop and spread southward this morning behind 
a washed out back door cold front which has stalled over the area. 
Low level northeasterly flow is advecting these clouds 
southwestward. This will create a north to south temperature gradient 
this morning with the areas underneath the cloud cover staying milder 
and cooler temperatures under the clear skies across the south. 
Any cloud cover will erode quickly after sunrise as these clouds are 
very shallow with no depth. This will yield another fantastic fall day 
with highs around 80 again. Lows tonight will again fall into the 
50s...only this time...skies should remain clear through the 
overnight hours with only some high clouds passing across the area. 
This will yield better fog potential in the valleys tonight. 
Tomorrow...the boundary layer will continue to warm ahead of an 
approaching cold front. This will yield the warmest day of the week 
with highs climbing well above normal into the low to middle 80s. Skies 
will turn partly cloudy through the day as clouds continue to 
increase ahead of the approaching system. 


Long term...(thursday night through tuesday) 
issued at 430 am EDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


The models continue to be in decent agreement aloft through the 
extended portion of the forecast. They all depict a deep full 
latitude trough moving through the Great Lakes and over the Ohio 
Valley into the weekend. The difference over the past several model 
runs is a tendency toward a more extreme solution with the core of 
the trough/S energy diving further south into the Ohio Valley. Now 
that the other models have moved toward this scenario...thereby 
joining the European model (ecmwf)...confidence has increased in this setup. The 
initial energy associated with the trough/S arrival into the area 
will sweep through east Kentucky during the day Friday followed by 
other batches of middle level energy passing through the southern Ohio 
Valley into Saturday. The European model (ecmwf) is still the more amplified and 
furthest south model with this trailing energy through the weekend... 
but given the trend have favored its forecast. The large trough 
then sits in place over the Great Lakes and south central Canada 
through the start of the new work week with heights relaxing a bit. 
The latest European model (ecmwf) is more insistent about a resurgence of this trough 
swinging through Kentucky and into the deep south Monday and Monday 
night while the pattern of the GFS is significantly flatter through 
Tuesday. Similar to last night will prefer the European model (ecmwf) for the first 
part of the extended and then a blend of the GFS and European model (ecmwf) for the 
latter portion...tempering the Euro/S enthusiasm 


Sensible weather will feature one last mild night and seasonable day 
to start the extended as a cold front barrels into the state. This 
system will have a healthy gradient with it keeping the winds up 
during Thursday night for the higher terrain also leading to warmer 
temperatures on the ridges. Showers and a few thunderstorms will 
accompany this front and be a concern that night through the day 
Friday. Do expect a few showers to linger into Friday night Post 
frontal as surges of colder air move into eastern parts of the state. 
This front and some lingering clouds beneath the middle level trough/S 
core will make for a chilly day on Saturday and a very cold night 
into Sunday morning. Depending on the cloud cover and how quickly the 
winds can drop off...some patchy frost cannot be ruled out in the 
deeper valleys across east Kentucky Sunday morning as temperatures 
settle into the middle and upper 30s by dawn. A secondary cold front 
will bring a chance of more showers to the area Sunday night into 
Monday along with another brief push of cool temperatures. The front 
does not make much progress south into Tuesday and could linger a few 
showers over the area to close out the extended. 


The CR grid Load again proved to be a good start to the extended 
grids...though again did adjust the probability of precipitation a tad toward the latest Euro 
solution early. Also tweaked the low temperature grids a bit each 
night to reflect at least some minor ridge and valley differences.

Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Wednesday night) 
issued at 204 am EDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


A back door cold front is pushing southwest into eastern Kentucky 
with a shallow stratus deck building south behind it. This 
progression southward should continue through the remainder of the 
night with areas clouding over with an IFR/MVFR layer of clouds. This 
should limit the overall fog threat...while...still posing aviation 
concerns. Given models poor handling of the stratus...confidence 
remains low on how long it will persist into the morning. Safe to 
say...it may take until middle morning before we see conditions go back 
to VFR. Should still see at least some patchy River Valley fog...but 
should be more limited than last night given the increasing clouds. 
After the stratus Burns off tomorrow...remainder of the period should 
feature VFR conditions.
