Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
1258 am EDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


Update... 
issued at 1258 am EDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


Some middle and upper level cloud cover is moving in from the 
southwest but seems to be dissipating as it advects in. This is 
setting up for a mostly clear night with fog developing in the 
valleys tonight. With the middle 60 degree dew points hanging around 
in some locations and subsidence setting up with the high...fog 
will certainly be the main issue heading into the morning hours. 
Have updated the forecast only to add dense fog to the zones. 
Besides updating with the latest temperatures and dew point points the 
forecast remains on track. Have sent out some new zones with the 
dense fog mention and sent the grids to the ndfd and web servers. 


Update issued at 1012 PM EDT Monday Aug 31 2015 


Just sent out the final forecast update for this evening. Ended up 
going with partly cloudy to mostly clear skies across the area as 
some debris clouds from earlier shower and storm activity is still 
lingering in portions of our area. Conditions still on track for 
areas of valley fog...with some areas near bodies of water and in 
valleys seeing locally dense fog at times from dawn through sun 
up. Removed all precipitation from the forecast for the rest of 
the night. Also removed previously outdated wording from the zone 
forecast text product. Lastly...updated the hazardous weather 
outlook to mention only the possibility of locally dense valley 
fog later tonight. 


Update issued at 736 PM EDT Monday Aug 31 2015 


Have already made some tweaks to the sky cover forecast for the 
rest of this evening and overnight. Satellite imagery clearly 
shows that very few clouds are in place across eastern Kentucky at 
this time. In fact...most of the area is currently experiencing 
mostly clear skies at the moment. See no reason to believe that 
cloud cover will be increasing across the area overnight. The only 
exception to this would be in our river valleys...where a stratus 
deck may form later tonight at the top of the temperature 
inversion...with widespread fog forming in the valley floors 
below. Will likely go with mostly clear skies across our forecast 
area in the final forecast update this evening. Will send out an 
official update to the zone forecast text product later in the 
shift with final grid edits and general wording updates.

Short term...(this evening through Tuesday night) 
issued at 325 PM EDT Monday Aug 31 2015 


There are two upper level vorts in the vicinity of Kentucky this 
afternoon...but one of them will slide off to the NE overnight 
tonight as the other meanders to the west. The vorticity that meanders to 
the west will come back to the east across northern Kentucky on 
Wednesday. There are some slight model differences in how this 
feature is handled given the weak flow that its embedded in...but 
the models at least all agree on keeping Tuesday dry. 


Meanwhile...at the surface...high pressure will remain in control of the 
sensible weather for the short term. Other than a few isolated 
showers this afternoon...do not expect any rain until possibly 
Wednesday afternoon as the upper level vorticity moves by the area. 
Temperatures will top out in the middle to upper 80s Tuesday...with a 
decent Ridge/Valley split in the 60 degree range anticipated both 
nights. 


Long term...(wednesday through monday) 
issued at 306 PM EDT Monday Aug 31 2015 


An upper level ridge of high pressure will provide our region 
with mainly dry and very warm conditions early in the period. The 
weak upper disturbance which is today spawning storms over 
southern Ohio will meander very slowly to the southeast through 
time and this may spawn an isolated shower/storm over our far east 
and southeast counties both Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. The 
disturbance is then prognosticated to merge with a piece of a western 
Atlantic trough and meander about over the southern 
Appalachians...Carolinas or deep south...depending on your model 
of choice...through the long Labor Day weekend. This will increase 
the threat for a shower or storm across the area as we head into 
the weekend but will keep probability of precipitation low as forecast models have not 
been consistently handling the weak features embedded in the more 
dominant ridge very well. The increased cloud cover may also 
temper the heat some...but temperatures should still run well into the 
80s each day through Labor Day.

Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Tuesday evening) 
issued at 736 PM EDT Monday Aug 31 2015 


Clouds and any remaining showers should dissipate after sunset. 
With high pressure building into the area tonight...mostly clear 
skies and calm wind will prevail. Fog development should begin in 
earnest around 4z this tonight...with widespread fog expected by 
dawn Tuesday. Have put in IFR and below conditions at the taf 
sites between 8z and 13z to account for the densest fog. The fog 
should dissipate by 14z allowing for a return to VFR conditions 
for the remainder of the taf period. Winds will be light and 
variable through the period.
