 Special Statement  Statement as of 2:21 am CST on March 6, 2015


... Patchy freezing fog may reduce visibility to near zero at
times...

The near record cold air settling overtop the region tonight is
very dry and not conducive for widespread fog... despite clear
skies and light winds.

However... in select patches... mainly in a low lying area or
typically fog prone area... a motorist may encounter a brief patch
of reduced visibility. If driving... slow down... and be
cautious... especially if traveling through some hilly terrain or
other rural setting where this patchy fog is more likely to occur.

With the cold temperatures... the fog will be freezing fog... and
may help create slick patches roadways that may have been cleared.
Hard to see refreezing ice may also be present and create a travel
hazard... so just travel with caution and care if you are on area
roadways during these early morning hours.

Lots of early morning sunshine should help burn off any lingering
isolated patches of fog and likewise help continue to improve
overall Road conditions.

Short term...(today through Sunday night) 
issued at 204 am CST Friday Mar 6 2015 


Patchy mist/freezing fog may occur early this morning...mainly in 
low lying areas...but does not appear widespread with nearly all 
observation sites showing good visibilities. It's out there though...with reduced 
visibilities in brief patches...so we'll monitor to see if it expands 
beyond isolated/patches as we drop to near record mins this 
morning. 


With 1035-1040 mb surface high ridged across Tennessee Valley 
today...should see plenty of sunshine and good temperature rise to near 
the 32f mark. This will be the beginning of a slow/gradual 
moderating trend that will commence and continue through the weekend. 


Tonight's lows look like teens mostly and with return flow we 
should see more sunshine and highs both Saturday and Sunday 
climbing into/through the 40s. The high shifts far enough east Sunday 
that moisture advection from the lower MS valley will introduce 
more clouds Sunday than Saturday and perhaps even a small chance 
of rain...but it should be confined mainly to the Arkansas and 
tennesse borders in southern most semo/wky...and mainly just sun 
PM/evening hours. 


Long term...(monday through thursday) 
issued at 204 am CST Friday Mar 6 2015 


Rather quiet weather will continue through the long term period. The 
upper level flow pattern will be dominated by a split flow regime 
across the USA. The moist southern branch of the jet will likely 
bring clouds as far north as our region from time to time. The 
models continue to indicate the northern edge of the measurable rain 
should stay mainly to our south. 


Monday into Tuesday...the first southern stream system will bring an 
increase in clouds. A positive tilt upper level trough over the 
Southern Plains will move very slowly east and weaken. An inverted 
surface trough extending from the Gulf Coast to the Tennessee Valley 
will produce a cool easterly wind flow. However...temperatures will 
seem very mild compared to this bitter cold. The forecast will 
remain dry except for a slight chance of rain in the khop area. 


From Tuesday night through Thursday...a rather broad upper level 
ridge is forecast to move slowly east across the plains to the 
Mississippi Valley. Some southern stream energy may undercut the 
ridge...spreading periods of cloudiness northward into the lower 
Ohio Valley. Low temperatures will be on the order of 40 degrees 
warmer than this morning. A rather steady snowmelt will moisten the 
cold ground...which could lead to fog or stratus formation in the 
light wind regime. This would most likely occur in the morning 
hours.

Aviation... 
issued at 204 am CST Friday Mar 6 2015 


Will monitor for patchy mist/fzfg in clear sky/calm wind over 
snowpack environ...but air is very dry so it appears to be mainly 
outside the terminals that it may occur. If it does occur...tempo 
restriction to MVFR or even IFR is not out of the question...most 
likely at kcgi. Otherwise VFR will rule as high pressure 
strengthens its grip over the Tennessee Valley.
