NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
255 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 30 2014 


Short term...(this evening through Wednesday night) 
issued at 255 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 30 2014 


The forecast models were all in very good agreement regarding the 
weather pattern for the next few days. A well developed ridge of high 
pressure aloft will remain in place over the Great Lakes...Ohio 
Valley and Tennessee Valley regions over the next 36 hours. The 
result will be light and variable winds...mostly clear skies...and 
dry weather. Temperatures during this time will be above normal for 
the time of year due to the influence of the high pressure and the 
abundant sunshine that will Bath the region. Highs on Wednesday will 
be topping out in the upper 70s and lower 80s...with overnight lows 
tonight and tomorrow night dropping into the low to middle 50s for most 
locations. The weather issue of note the next couple of nights will 
fog. Conditions remain primed for another night or two of widespread 
fog. Based on the latest time height cross sections and model 
soundings...and prevailing conditions...the fog will likely become 
dense again for a large portion of the area. Upcoming shifts will 
need to monitor the situation to determine if any products need to be 
issued to deal with the fog. 


Long term...(thursday through tuesday) 
issued at 255 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 30 2014 


At the middle and upper levels models are in reasonable agreement with 
large scale features. Short wave ridging in place over the Ohio 
Valley at the start of the extended will rapidly yield to a large 
trough and low pressure system that is expected to bull doze its way 
into the eastern Continental U.S. By late Friday...Saturday. This system will 
provide our area with a solid shot of colder autumn like air and 
dominate our weather pattern through the remainder of the extended. 
Challenge will center around short wave activity that rounds the 
bottom of the larger eastern Continental U.S. Trough through the remainder of 
the extended...or more specifically the timing of these impulses 
through our area. 


Sensible weather will focus mainly around strong cold frontal system 
that will sweep across much of the eastern Continental U.S....and through the 
Ohio Valley Friday. A few impulses behind this first system will 
serve mainly to reinforce the much cooler air that will settle over 
the forecast area through the bulk of the extended. A fast moving 
cold front will produce showers and a chance of thunderstorms 
Friday. Should forecast soundings be realized and in particular 
something similar to the 12z GFS solution...there could be a 
potential for a few stronger thunderstorms as the cold front pushes 
its way across our forecast area. With h850 low level jet approaching 50 kts 
combined with surface based instability directly ahead of the front... 
lifted indices of -3/convective available potential energy about 1000 j/kg...thoughts are that some stronger 
winds may mix down to the surface in and near any thunderstorms. With 
shear profiles showing the majority of the bulk shear existing in 
the lower 3 km of the sounding...the potential for some bowing 
cells/line segments can not be ruled out. However...greater surface 
based instability would be required for any significant severe 
threat. Winds will become gusty behind the front as well...as colder 
air comes rushing in late Friday. With strong mixing these gusty 
winds appear to linger into Friday night....early Saturday morning 
before subsiding. Temperatures will cool considerably. Highs will 
likely only climb into the 50s Saturday and only gradually moderate 
from there as reinforcing shots of cooler air work there way into 
the region from time to time...the next most immediate being a front 
that moves across the County Warning Area Monday. 


Given that the models continue to advertise a theme of the GFS being 
warmer and the European model (ecmwf) much colder from Sat through the end of the 
period...the blend of guidance seemed to be the best course of 
action at this time. However...the warmer GFS is trending towards 
the cooler European model (ecmwf) overall. The bottom line is the period begins mild 
and then ends with below normal temperatures. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Wednesday afternoon) 
issued at 129 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 30 2014 


Conditions look ripe for another period of dense fog at the taf sites 
beginning between 5 and 6z tonight and lasting through 13 and 15z on 
Wednesday. The fog will be at its worst between roughly 7 and 12z. 
The fog should first begin lifting and dissipating between 12 and 
13z and should be gone by around 15z on Wednesday. LIFR conditions can 
be expected during the peak of fog coverage at all 4 taf sites. Winds 
will go calm overnight and be light and variable on Wednesday with 
mostly sunny skies.
