NWS Forecaster Discussion
Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 202 am EST Sat Dec 7 2013 Update... issued at 202 am EST Sat Dec 7 2013 Grids are in good shape and are running close to observations...so no major changes to the grids. Still some areas of -fzdz showing up in local observation and radar...maybe some light snow mixing in with the precipitation. Expect the overall trend to decrease with precipitation ending completely between now and dawn. For now will leave headlines up. No planned update to the zone package at this time. Update issued at 859 PM EST Friday Dec 6 2013 The transition to snow has been slower than was expected. Have backed off on the snow in the forecast...and only included it from around I-64 north...with most places even in that area ending up with no more than an inch or two. With at least freezing drizzle still in the forecast almost everywhere...have left the advisory in place. && Short term...(this evening through saturday) issued at 400 PM EST Friday Dec 6 2013 Models are in good agreement for the end of the ongoing event. Rain and isolated thunder were occurring across the area at middle afternoon. As a low pressure wave along a strong frontal boundary just to our southeast ripples NE along the front...the front will slip further southeast and cold air will progress into the area from the northwest. The cold air will initially undercut a warm layer aloft...with a resulting narrow band of sleet and freezing rain likely progressing into our area from the northwest. As the warm layer aloft erodes...the mixed precipitation will be followed by snow moving in from the northwest. The snow may be briefly heavy. However...the deep moisture will depart before the transition has a chance to make its way all the way across the forecast area. As a result...the southeast part of the area is expected to see the rain just taper to drizzle and freezing drizzle overnight. However...with all areas looking for some form of freezing precipitation...the advisory will be expanded to take in all areas. Lingering drizzle will taper off on Saturday. Long term...(saturday night through friday) issued at 412 PM EST Friday Dec 6 2013 A low pressure system will form on the front that is south of the area on Saturday night. As this low moves along the cold front...warm air will overrun the cold air and produce mostly freezing precipitation...however there may also be a mix of snow and sleet in there as well. The freezing precipitation will start in the south and then move to the north as the warm front moves into the area. The freezing rain will then be ending in the south along the Tennessee border in the morning and then end over flemming County in the afternoon. At this point in time...expecting the worst of the ice accumulation to be around two tenths of an inch. This will create treacherous and very dangerous driving conditions. When you combine the ice along with the elevation and direction changes along the Kentucky roads...it becomes extremely dangerous to drive. A weather advisory for Saturday night and Sunday morning will most likely be issue by tomorrow morning. It was feared that having two different advisories out would create confusion...so will issue an Special Weather Statement to cover Saturday night and Sunday. Once the warmer air moves into the area on Sunday...the heavier rain will return to the area. Since the ground will already be saturated...the potential for nuisance and river flooding will increase. Also the thread for mud slides will increase. Also...some roadways may become unstable and drop off may suddenly appear. The last of the rain will finally move out of the area by Tuesday morning. The rivers will probably not crest until middle week. High pressure and colder air will move into the area on Tuesday. With high pressure in place...thing will stay dry and cold. Went with the model blend for the temperatures. && Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Saturday night) issued at 202 am EST Sat Dec 7 2013 Rain has ended and tapered off to some -fzdz across the area. Exception appears to be in the far north...along and north of Interstate 64 where some light snow may be falling. Based on observation and radar trends expect -fzdz will continue to taper off and end by around dawn. But low ceilings will remain an issue until skies begin to lift and at least partially clear out through the morning hours Saturday. Another round of precipitation...beginning as a wintry mix will move in from the south at the end of the forecast window... possibly affecting kloz and ksme by around 06z. && Jkl watches/warnings/advisories... Winter Weather Advisory until 7 am EST this morning for kyz044- 050>052-058>060-068-069-079-080-083>088-104-106>120. && $$ Update...ray short term...hal long term...jj aviation...ray
