NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
807 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Update... 
issued at 806 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Most convection east of I-75 has waned...besides a few stray 
light returns at times. The best coverage is currently aligned 
west of I-75...associated with some weak low level convergence and 
a fairly untapped environment. The higher resolution short term 
models show this area of convergence weakening after 01z...so have 
continued to align the best probability of precipitation over the southwest for the next 
hour or so...before dwindling. Will hang onto slight probability of precipitation 
elsewhere through around midnight...before going dry. Low 
temperatures around 70 and plenty of fog look on track overnight. 
Updates have been sent. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through Wednesday night) 
issued at 359 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Current conditions across eastern Kentucky feature showers and 
thunderstorms across the area slowly shifting off to the southeast 
as they develop. The main concern this afternoon being the heavy 
rainfall potential with precipitable waters  in the 1.8 to 2.2 range and plenty 
of instability. This has been occurring with a weak disturbance 
overhead with a faded surface boundary stretching across the area. 
Due to the saturated airmass in place and instability in 
place...will go with chance probability of precipitation well into the evening tonight as 
persistence would also suggest this. Will continue with the 
mention of heavy rainfall possible in the severe weather potential statement. This has also 
tempered the high temperatures this afternoon. 


Heading into tonight...lingering convection is expected to 
continue into the first part of tonight...especially with this 
saturated airmass in place. With this instability will be slow to 
wane along with precipitable waters  still in the 2 inch range. A brief break in 
precipitation and cloud cover will lead to fog development late tonight 
and with dew points remaining in the lower 70s with some middle 
70s...fog will be dense in some areas. Moist southerly flow is 
expected to continue and remain pronounced with a better defined 
feature on the way in the form of a cold front. This will provide 
enough lift for continued shower and thunderstorm development into 
the afternoon on Wednesday. In fact...into Wednesday night...precipitable water 
values jump beyond the 2 inch range with model profiles saturated 
to nearly 500mb in most locations. For this...have put likely probability of precipitation 
Wednesday evening through Wednesday night. Storm Prediction Center has also mentioned 
a marginal wind threat with this activity along the front but the 
main impact will again be slow storm motion with heavy rainfall 
possibly causing some minor flooding issues. 


In addition to the heavy rainfall...temperatures will reach to 
around 90 on Wednesday afternoon with heat index values reaching 
around 100 possible in some areas adding another impact to be 
mindful of. 


Long term...(thursday through tuesday) 
issued at 419 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Early in the period...the model consensus is for a closed low 
centered just south of James Bay and associated shortwave trough 
extending south into the Great Lakes and lower Ohio Valley region. At 
that point...ridging is expected to be centered off the eastern 
Seaboard...with another ridge centered over the Southern Plains and 
extending northwest into the Pacific northwest region. To start the 
period...a surface cold front should extend from low pressure over 
Ontario should be nearing or moving across eastern Kentucky...with high 
pressure building east toward the lower Ohio Valley region in its wake. 


During the second half of the week and into the upcoming weekend... 
the center of the ridge initially over the Southern Plains should 
retrograde west to the southern rockies and then The Four Corners 
region...while a trough will extend from the Hudson and James Bay 
regions south into the eastern Continental U.S.. on the mean...this pattern 
should remain in place into early next week. Shortwaves will 
periodically rotate around the closed upper low and through the 
trough in northwest flow...and bring periodic increases in middle and upper 
level moisture. The associated surface cold fronts...one moving through 
Friday night and Sat should be moisture starved and not produce more 
than an increase in clouds. Late in the period...another cold front 
will approach the area. This cold front nearing the Ohio Valley late 
on Monday and into Tuesday should have a bit more moisture to work 
with. 


Leftover showers and possibly a few thunderstorms will linger until 
the front moves through the region on Thursday...with the highest 
chances near the Virginia border. High pressure will build in a bring an 
airmass that will be a couple of degrees colder...with lower 
dewpoints and less humidity being more noticeable. Highs mainly in 
the middle 80s should be common for Thursday into Sunday...before warming 
into the upper 80s on Monday ahead of the boundary. Lows will average 
a couple of degrees below normal to end the week...in the low to middle 
60s. If dry enough air moves in behind the boundary...a few of the 
normally colder spots in the north...north of the mountain Parkway could 
drop to 59 or so no Friday or Saturday mornings. Patchy valley fog 
should also develop each morning from Friday through Sunday. Slight 
probability of precipitation were used late in the period...ahead of the approaching front.

Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Wednesday evening) 
issued at 806 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Expect IFR conditions at sme through 01z as convection moves 
southeast across the area. At loz...expect a slightly later 
arrival and likely less intense. Have gone for a half hour window 
of MVFR associated with convection between 01 and 02z. 
Elsewhere...expect convection to be isolated enough to forego any 
thunderstorms in the vicinity mention. Fog will then set in overnight...and continued to 
mention LIFR or worse fog across the board given the moist 
environment and potentially clearer skies overhead compared to 
last night. Fog will burn off by around 13z...with additional 
scattered convection likely threatening the area by Wednesday 
afternoon.
