NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
324 PM EDT Thursday Jul 2 2015 


Short term...(this evening through Friday night) 
issued at 254 PM EDT Thursday Jul 2 2015 


Overall there is some reasonable agreement with the upper level 
pattern in the short tern period. More issues reside in the 
smaller shortwave features riding through the flow in terms of 
depth and speed. These differences will certainly have 
implications in the surface features. Otherwise trough setup will 
lead to a stormy short term period overall. 


This afternoon we do see some breaks in the cloud cover...which is 
leading additional convection across portions of central and 
western Kentucky. The hrrr keeps hinting that this convection will move 
into the southern portions of the County Warning Area...however the timing seems a 
bit too fast at this time. Given the sub 1 inch 1 hour guidance 
over portions of that area flooding would be a big concern this 
evening once again. Quasi/stationary front remains along and near 
the Ohio River this afternoon with low pressure systems riding 
along the front. This boundary will waver across the commonwealth 
through the short term period and will lead to generally unsettled 
conditions. Given at times precipitable waters  will be near 2.0 inches in 
spots...lowering ffg...and at times convective nature of storms 
could lead to localized flash flooding. This will have the best 
chances of occurring in areas that see repeated rounds or slow 
moving thunderstorms. Therefore have Flash Flood Watch in place 
for all of the County Warning Area from now through 00z Sat. Model guidance 
suggest a lull in the precipitation as we move into Friday night. 


Long term...(saturday through thursday) 
issued at 324 PM EDT Thursday Jul 2 2015 


Upper level trough responsible for all the unsettled weather 
lately will finally flatten out into early next week. This will 
lead to lesser chances for showers and storms as we head into 
early next week. In the meantime...we will still have an area of 
low pressure to contend with through the weekend...keeping the 
weather unsettled...especially during the afternoon/evening hours. 
Temperatures will remain below normal through the weekend given 
the cloud cover and precipitation. Not confident yet to go with a 
dry period next week...but its looking increasingly likely we will 
see at least a few dry period early next week. However...a 
shortwave trough will dive across the Great Lakes/Ohio Valley by 
Tuesday into Wednesday...with another front dropping into the 
vicinity of eastern Kentucky. This will lead to increasing 
rain/storm chances once again by midweek. Heat and humidity should 
also build ahead of the front...so we may see temperatures at 
least approach or even exceed normal for at least one day early 
next week. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Friday afternoon) 
issued at 132 PM EDT Thursday Jul 2 2015 


15z surface analysis shows frontal boundary draped near and 
across the Ohio River this afternoon with surface lows along the 
front. This will lead to a stormy taf period overall. This 
afternoon many of the northern and eastern sites are seeing LIFR 
to MVFR ceilings and visible. We are seeing some clearing across the 
southern sites...however any clearing could lead to increased 
instability. Given that shower and storm activity continues to 
develop upstream the concern would be additional development would 
be possible. Although do expect development the exact locations of 
this are still uncertain. Therefore did keep tafs this afternoon 
and overnight thunderstorms in the vicinity/vcsh at this point. Also seem reasonable that 
fog and lower ceiling would have the potential to develop 
overnight once again leading to LIFR/IFR conditions. Otherwise 
overall winds are expected to be light in nature...except perhaps 
with storm activity.
