Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
354 PM EST Friday Dec 19 2014 


Short term...(this evening through Saturday night) 
issued at 350 PM EST Friday Dec 19 2014 


19z surface analysis shows high pressure still in control of the weather over 
the Ohio Valley. The lower clouds over the northeast are finally 
responding to the drier air from this high by eroding off beneath a 
layer of high clouds spreading in and thickening from the southwest. 
Temperatures across the area vary from the chilly low 30s in the 
north to the lower 40s in the far southeast. Meanwhile...with light 
winds in place over the area...dewpoints vary from the low 20s north 
to the middle 20s south. 


The models continue to be in good agreement with a couple of 
dampening waves moving through the region over the next 36 to 48 
hours. The first of these will pass to the south late tonight and 
into Saturday morning...while a bit better defined one will move 
just north of east through the central Ohio Valley during the day 
Saturday. The models also continued their trend of these waves being 
weaker and of less substance. Later Saturday night...heights will 
rise ahead of the next more significant trough. Accordingly...have 
followed a blended solution and leaned more closely to the nam12 and 
hrrr. 


Sensible weather will feature clouds thickening and lowering through 
the night with a chance of light snow or rain moving into our 
southernmost areas after midnight. Do not expect much in the way quantitative precipitation forecast 
out of this with most of the precipitation falling as just virga or 
flurries/sprinkles. Given the dry dewpoints the precipitation rate will likely 
not fall fast enough to contribute to wetbulbing...keeping it as 
liquid longer than normal in these type of situations. The weak 
southern wave will move away from Kentucky by noon Saturday with even 
some clearing possible before evening. This will make for a tricky 
temperature forecast into Saturday with a wide variance between the 
cooler met numbers and the much milder mav ones. As we are leaning 
more toward the still rather dry nam12 solution will also favor the 
cooler met maximum T numbers. Another cool night follows into Sunday 
morning as some clearing will be possible from the west. 


Again used the bcconsshort as a starting point for the T/TD/wind 
grids for the first 20 hours or so before populating with the 
superblend thereafter. Only minor adjustments were made for terrain 
effects both tonight and Saturday night given the clouds...but did 
drop the maxt down a couple of degrees from the too warm blend. As 
for probability of precipitation...ended up close to a blend of the wetter met and dry mav 
tonight into Saturday...and then dry on Saturday night. 


Long term...(sunday through friday) 
issued at 351 PM EST Friday Dec 19 2014 


Active pattern continues to be the story for much of the long term 
period. Sunday does look quiet for the beginning of the period with 
mostly clear conditions...however clouds will increase from south to 
north through the day into Sunday night. This is system one which 
will come from the southern branch and will bring best chances of all 
rain Sunday night into Monday. This system is expected to progress NE 
but there is questions as to the phasing of this southern and 
impending northern branch system. Given some uncertainty will keep 
slight chance of precipitation Monday into Tuesday. 


Then focus shifts to the northern system as upper level low and 
surface low approaches the Great Lakes Monday night. The models are 
still not in agreement on what happens with this system in terms of 
timing and evolution. The GFS develops a secondary low later that 
moves NE across the middle Atlantic Wednesday...while the European model (ecmwf) 
develops a low across Tennessee and Ohio Valley then moves it straight NE 
Tuesday night. These timing and evolution issues will play a role in 
how much precipitation and precipitation types. Either way thinking Wednesday we 
will see rain/snow to snow as we move through the day into the night 
across portions of the region...however it does look like it will be 
more wrap around later Wednesday. The wrap around snow showers 
should die down as we move through the day Thursday with system 
tracking into the far NE US by Thursday night. Surface high pressure 
off to the south and upper level ridging will build east across the 
southeast US Thursday night into Friday. This will lead to return flow and 
high temperatures warming into the lower 50s by Friday.

Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Saturday afternoon) 
issued at 125 PM EST Friday Dec 19 2014 


Low...MVFR...clouds are lingering over the northeast portion of the 
area with just high clouds seen elsewhere. Expect the northeast 
clouds to break up later this afternoon as the higher clouds slowly 
start to thicken and descend. These clouds are coming from weak low 
pressure well to the south of the area. This low will brush by 
eastern Kentucky later tonight and into the day Saturday. Cannot rule 
out some light rain or snow over our southernmost parts of the area 
with maybe a sprinkle or flurry further to the north. In the south we 
could see some MVFR ceilings return as the main system passes late 
tonight...otherwise VFR conditions will dominate. Winds will remain 
light and variable.
