NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
650 PM EST Friday Mar 6 2015 


Update... 
issued at 650 PM EST Friday Mar 6 2015 


High pressure has moved east across eastern Kentucky. This will 
keep mostly clear skies and another cold night. Tonight does not 
look as cold as last night with temperatures bottoming out in the upper 
single digits and teens. Updated grids with latest observation and 
trends...otherwise forecast on track. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through Saturday night) 
issued at 312 PM EST Friday Mar 6 2015 


A tranquil period of weather is expected through Saturday night as 
high pressure remains on control across the area. A weak frontal 
boundary may given a glancing blow of some clouds Saturday 
night...but no precipitation is expected. Temperatures will remain 
below normal tonight...with the sheltered valleys into the upper 
single digits with teens to lower 20s elsewhere. A nice warmup 
with another day of sunshine is expected on Saturday with 
temperatures climbing into the 40s to around 50. Increasing clouds 
may keep lows a bit higher Saturday night around 30. 


Long term...(sunday through friday) 
issued at 312 PM EST Friday Mar 6 2015 


The eastern Continental U.S./Noam trough should become more broad by the start 
of the period...while a ridge will linger near the West Coast of the 
Continental U.S.. at that point...a closed low is anticipated to be over the 
southern rockies and northern Mexico...while a shortwave ridge is 
expected to work across the southeastern US. 


The initial southwest closed low should begin to open up by the end 
of the weekend...and return moisture is projected to spread from the 
Southern Plains to the MS valley and then into the Ohio and Tennessee 
valleys. Disturbances embedded within the southern stream should 
continue to eject out of the trough over the southern rockies into 
the Southern Plains...while heights rise off the southeast US coast. 
This will bring a continued moderation in temperatures...but also 
chances for rain at times...especially Tuesday into early Wednesday 
and Friday/Saturday. As it stands now...Thursday looks to be a break 
in between rain chances. However...chances for rain next weekend 
appears to be increasing. During that time deeper moisture returns 
along with a stronger surface system and heavier rainfall amounts than 
the midweek system. How this system plays out will be intriguing 
considering the model differences...though a significant amount of 
precipitation...whether it be all rain (12z ecmwf) or a rain/wintry mix 
(12z gfs)...looks possible. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Saturday evening) 
issued at 625 PM EST Friday Mar 6 2015 


A few high clouds may be seen across the far north this 
evening...otherwise high pressure will bring continued dry and 
VFR conditions to eastern Kentucky through much of the taf period.

Jkl watches/warnings/advisories...
