Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
1000 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Update... 
issued at 1000 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


The weather should be quiet overnight with clear skies and 
possibly some valley fog. Not quite sure how prevalent the fog 
will be...given models indicating 850 mb winds increasing 
overnight which could keep the column mixed. Even so...did include 
patchy valley fog in the forecast. Also refreshed the hourly 
temperatures to reflect most recent observation. Sent updated grids to ndfd and 
web servers. 


Update issued at 648 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Latest radar indicates a few isolated thunderstorms remaining in 
the forecast area...mainly in northeast Kentucky. These storms 
will likely be the last of the night as clearing is evident in 
visible imagery moving into the area. So have adjusted probability of precipitation to 
reflect radar trends as well as refreshed the hourly temperatures to 
reflect most recent observation. Sent updated grids to ndfd and web 
servers. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through Friday night) 
issued at 300 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Isolated to scattered showers and storms are expected to move 
across eastern Kentucky this afternoon and evening. At this 
time...isolated showers are moving across our far northern 
counties along and north of i64. Based on current trends in the 
model data and radar imagery...and the fairly wide spread between 
temperatures and dewpoints across eastern Kentucky...it will be 
difficult for more than scattered activity to persist across the 
area for the rest of today. By 2 or 3z this evening it is 
anticipated that eastern Kentucky will be precipitation free. A 
ridge of high pressure is then forecast by the models to settle 
over the region tonight through late tomorrow night. The next 
chance of precipitation is on tap to arrive in eastern Kentucky 
late Friday night...likely in the form of general rain showers. 


Temperatures during the period are expected to once again to be 
well above normal. Highs on Friday are forecast to maximum out in the 
upper 70s. Lows the next two nights will quite mild as well...with 
values in the low to middle 50s expected across the area. 


Long term...(saturday through thursday) 
issued at 347 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


The extended portion of the forecast begins on Saturday with a 
continued upper level active pattern with progressive 
characteristics. An upper level longwave trough opens into the 
Front Range as a closed low ejects into the Central Plains. The 
short wave will then lift into the Midwest and Ohio Valley by 
Saturday evening. By Sunday...the pattern remains active with 
another short wave ejecting into the Midwest and Ohio Valley. This 
will then begin a period of continued active pattern with numerous 
short waves tracking northeast from the middle MS valley and up into 
the Ohio Valley through Tuesday night. The pattern then shifts to 
the development of a giant ridge over the plains shifting east 
over the Ohio Valley...bringing an end to the wet pattern. 


Closer to the surface...the active upper level pattern keeps a 
stationary boundary over the northern portion of Kentucky and 
along the Ohio River. This will keep east Kentucky in the warm 
sector with warm...moist...and unstable conditions in place. With 
this...showers and thunderstorms will begin to develop into the 
area by noon on Saturday. With plenty of development and limited 
cape...will not expect any strong storms but will keep a good 
chance of showers and storms through the day. By Sunday...a 
stronger short wave tracks along the lower Ohio Valley and into the 
area as a strong cold front pushes into western and central 
Kentucky. While cloud cover and lingering convection from Saturday 
night and into Sunday will be an issue...the amount of 
instability and shear will allow for a concern of some strong 
storms. Have put a mention of this into the severe weather potential statement. 


For the rest of the period...the passage of the cold front Sunday 
night will lead to a cool period for the rest of the extended. A 
few weak short waves passing through behind the front will keep 
showers in the forecast through Tuesday. Finally...high pressure 
looks to begin to settle in by the end of the extended leading to 
a cool and dry period beyond the extended. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Friday evening) 
issued at 748 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Afternoon rain showers have exited the area with clear skies 
quickly taking hold. This is due to surface high pressure that is 
building into eastern Kentucky. Therefore...VFR conditions should 
prevail through the forecast period with the exception of MVFR/IFR 
valley fog overnight tonight...possibly affecting loz...sme and 
sjs taf sites. There is some question whether the fog will 
materialize or not due to stronger 850 mb winds moving into the 
area overnight...keeping the atmosphere mixed. But for 
now...decided to include it to match up with model guidance. Winds 
will generally be between 5 and 10 knots from the west.
