Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Jackson Kentucky 
1045 PM EDT Monday Apr 20 2015 


Update... 
issued at 1045 PM EDT Monday Apr 20 2015 


The showers are mostly out of eastern Kentucky with just a brief 
period of trailing sprinkles. Have updated the grids to reflect 
this and also adjusted the T and dew point grids per the latest observation and 
trends. These updates have been sent to the ndfd and web servers. 
A freshened set of zones were also issued. 


Update issued at 815 PM EDT Monday Apr 20 2015 


23z surface analysis shows the cold front now east of Kentucky with 
just some lingering showers trailing behind...as seen on radar. 
Accordingly...have updated the grids and zones to remove the 
thunder and taper off the shower chances through the evening. In 
the wake of the front...temperatures are falling through the County Warning Area 
with low 50s in the west and near 60 degree readings in the far 
east. Dewpoints are likewise dropping...currently from the middle 40s 
northwest to lower 50s in the southeast. West winds to 10 to 20 
miles per hour will contribute to the cooler and drier advection through the 
rest of the evening before they taper off...as well. Expect the 
clouds to gradually break up through the night with the drier air 
and light winds helping to keep any fog confined to just the 
deeper valleys. For this update...have also fine tuned the temperatures 
and dewpoints through the rest of the night per the latest 
shortblend guidance...obs...and trends. These updates have been 
sent to the ndfd and web servers along with a freshened set of 
zones and severe weather potential statement.

Short term...(this evening through Tuesday night) 
issued at 355 PM EDT Monday Apr 20 2015 


A deep upper level low is currently spiraling near the 
Manitoba/Ontario border...with the reflective surface low just 
about north of the Great Lakes and its attendant cold front strung 
out south across central Ohio and then down through eastern 
Kentucky and Tennessee. 


Convection has popped up across the area this afternoon...with the 
best coverage occurring along and west of a line from Morehead to 
Stanton to Monticello. A few thunderstorms have developed as 
well...however these have been isolated at best. Additionally... 
southwest to west surface winds of 10 to 20 miles per hour...with gusts 
around 30 miles per hour continue in cyclonic flow around the northern low. 


Scattered to numerous showers...along with a stray thunderstorm 
will gradually work east across the area through this evening... 
as the sheared out cold front eventually makes it through the 
entire commonwealth. Convection will then wind down from west to 
east...with high pressure building in across the lower Mississippi 
Valley. Some late clearing will allow for some lower 40 degree 
readings in places out west...with mainly middle 40s expected 
elsewhere. 


Tuesday will feature another breezy day...as we mix deep in the 
continued cyclonic flow...with fairly Stout wind fields still in 
place. Gusts will range from 25 to 35 miles per hour. Highs will recover to 
the middle 60s for most locations. Another cold front will approach 
the area from the northwest late in the day...as another spoke of 
energy rotates around the northern upper level low. This will 
bring at least a slight chance of a few showers to the north late 
in the day. Better chances will occur Tuesday night as the front 
draws closer to the area. Lows Tuesday night should be a little 
milder given the cloud cover and mixed boundary layer...with middle 
to upper 40s expected. 


Long term...(wednesday through monday) 
issued at 355 PM EDT Monday Apr 20 2015 


The GFS and European model (ecmwf) models were in decent agreement with the overall 
large scale weather pattern in the extended this go round. The 
consensus was for a large scale trough to move across the upper 
Great Lakes region into northern New England Wednesday and 
Wednesday night. A cold front extending southward from this trough 
is expected to move across the Ohio and Tennessee Valley 
regions...bring scattered rain showers to the area to begin the 
period. The precipitation is then forecast to exit the area by 
around dawn on Thursday...as a ridge of high pressure settles over 
the area behind the departed front. Much cooler and drier air is 
then on tap to spill into the area Thursday night...making for a 
dry forecast during that time frame. Another shot of rain is 
forecast from Friday through Sunday...as an area of low pressure 
moves out of the Central Plains and yet again crosses the Ohio and 
Tennessee valleys. This weather system looks like it will be 
slower and have quite a bit more moisture to work with then at 
the beginning of the period. Therefore...precipitation chances 
for the Friday through Sunday time frame are forecast to be 
substantially higher than Wednesday/S system. The peak time for 
rain with this second system looks to be Saturday morning...based 
on the latest model data at least. Both the models also have a 
third slug of precipitation moving across the area at the very end 
of the period. With both models suggesting something for the end 
of the period...decided to include a slight chance of rain for 
late Sunday night...but this was done with great uncertainty 
figured in. Based on the lack of instability available...and the 
cooler than normal air mass expected...decided not to include 
thunder in the forecast in the extended. The models soundings 
simply did not seem to support it at this time. 


Temperatures beyond Wednesday will likely be well below 
normal...with a cooler than normal air mass moving southward out of 
Canada to start the period off. Highs each day from Thursday Onward 
are forecast to top out in the upper 50s and lower 60s...with 
overnight lows mostly in the low to middle 40s. The one exception looks 
like it will be late Thursday night into early Friday morning...at 
which time temperatures may bottom out in the middle to upper 30s 
across area. Based on some MOS data...some of our deeper...more 
sheltered...and normally colder valleys could see lows dropping to 
34 or 35 degrees if we get enough clearing and winds go calm 
Thursday night. This will bear watching for sure...and based on all 
that...frost will be mentioned yet again in the hazardous weather 
outlook for the Thursday night into Friday morning period.

Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Tuesday evening) 
issued at 800 PM EDT Monday Apr 20 2015 


Scattered showers will work east across the area through early 
evening. Any direct hit from a shower will result in temporary 
MVFR or worse conditions...otherwise the main cloud deck should 
remain in the 3 to 5k feet above ground level range. West-southwest winds of 10 to 15 kts... 
with gusts of around 20 kts will veer to the west as a cold front 
departs from the area. Winds will diminish through the evening... 
with showers ending...as well. Look for the VFR clouds to break 
up from northwest to southeast later tonight. High pressure will 
then pass by well to our south on Tuesday...allowing for VFR 
conditions...but another day of gusty west winds developing by 
middle morning.
