NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
346 am EDT Tuesday Sep 23 2014 


Short term...(today through wednesday) 
issued at 346 am EDT Tuesday Sep 23 2014 


Forecast has changed little from previous forecast package. Strong 
upper level ridging...coinciding with strong surface high 
pressure...will continue to be the main weather driver over the 
short term period /today through tomorrow/. Upper level pressure 
gradients will lesson today compared to yesterday...and we will also 
lose the influence of the northern jet across the region. As 
such...temperatures will modify slightly warmer...while still 
remaining quite below seasonable normals. Highs today should reach 
the low 70s across much of the region under sunny skies and light NE 
winds. Dew points will be very low across the region...with some of 
the highest elevations dipping into the 20 degree range through this 
morning. 


Kept mention of valley fog in for tonight...as weather pattern will 
be similar to that of last night. Strong subsidence will trap 
moisture in the valleys and near bodies of water...while 
temperatures quickly drop off under the influence of strong 
radiational cooling. Overnight lows should be a couple degrees 
warmer than this morning...but once again...still well below normal. 
Ridges could see middle to upper 40s...while the valleys could dip back 
into the low 40s once more. 


Similar story for tomorrow...as high pressure remains overhead. Very 
little moisture across the area will cut down on dew points as well 
as cloud potential. Temperatures will continue to modify upwards 
with abundant sunshine and a slight wind shift to the east. Highs 
Wednesday afternoon will be much closer to seasonable 
norms...reaching the middle and upper 70s. 


Long term...(wednesday through monday) 
issued at 343 PM EDT Monday Sep 22 2014 


A strong upper level ridge will remain the dominant weather feature 
into next weekend. Surface high pressure will remain strong over the 
region...with winds both at the surface and aloft pulling dry and 
cool air in from Canada. The loss of nearly wind flow at both the 
surface and aloft will lead to air mass modification and rising 
temperatures throughout the extended. It now looks like the ridge 
may strengthen heading through next weekend...likely keeping the 
area dry and mild. The next chance of rain may arrive sometime early 
to the middle part of next week as some kind of tropical disturbance 
pushes north into the middle Mississippi River valley. Latest European model (ecmwf) 
continues to slow down the progression of this system...so its 
possible rain chances may get pushed back even further. 
Regardless...any system that tracks north will likely keep US in 
southeasterly downsloping flow...so initially there is going to be 
lots of dry air to overcome prior to any precipitation. 
Thus...precipitation chances will remain in the slight chance 
category.

Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Tuesday night) 
issued at 126 am EDT Tuesday Sep 23 2014 


Latest visible imagery is showing fog development across the valleys 
of the eastern Kentucky coalfields...with rapid expansion over the last 
hour. The fog is currently affecting ksjs...and should continue to 
thicken to below Airport mins through early morning. 
Unfortunately...given the location of this site...visible and ceilings may 
bounce around a bit through the night from lower to higher 
categories. Northeast flow should keep it out of kjkl...ksme...and 
kloz...other than maybe an hour or two of MVFR as the fog rises from 
the valleys near dawn. Once fog dissipates in the morning with 
daytime heating...high pressure and strong subsidence will be the 
driving force for weather during the day. Light winds /generally out 
of the NE/ and clear skies can be expected at all taf sites.
