NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
521 PM CST Wed Nov 26 2014 


Update... 
issued at 520 PM CST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Updated for aviation forecast discussion. 


&& 


Short term...(tonight through friday) 
issued at 300 PM CST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Main concern is the potential for light wintry precipitation through 
the evening as a clipper system makes passage. Latest radar time 
lapse indicates light precipitation covering the middle of the 
forecast area. The precipitation started out as a mix of light rain 
and light snow over southeast Missouri this morning. However, as 
temperatures warmed, most of the precipitation has changed over to 
rain this afternoon. That said, some snow flakes likely remain mixed 
in across northern portions of southern Illinois. 


As we progress through the late afternoon and evening, more of the 
rain is forecast to become mixed with and transition over to light 
snow as colder air filters in from the northwest. Snow accumulation 
should remain on the light side - generally less than a half inch - 
across southwest Indiana, northwest Kentucky, and southern Illinois 
along and north of the Shawnee Hills. Any accumulation should be 
most prominent on grassy and elevated surfaces. Lingering snow 
will taper off west to east later this evening and overnight. 


Behind the departing system, high pressure will build in for 
Thanksgiving and black Friday. While plenty of low clouds will be 
around Thanksgiving morning, a trend towards more sunshine is 
expected during the afternoon and especially Friday. Thanksgiving 
day will be quite cold as temperatures start off in the upper 20s 
and lower 30s and only reach afternoon highs in the mid to upper 
30s. Lows in the 20s Thursday night will be followed by milder 
readings in the mid to upper 40s on Friday. 


Long term...(friday night through wednesday) 
issued at 300 PM CST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Forecast confidence better in the first few 12 hour blocks of the 
long term period, then drops off due to model differences through 
the remainder of the period. Even so, there are a number of 
precipitation possibilities during the period, all of them being of 
the liquid variety. 


The long term period starts off with high pressure at the surface 
and west northwest flow aloft. On Saturday southerly winds will 
moisten up the lower levels (aob 700mb) and there will be decent 
upglide on the i295 isentropic surface, so there might be patches of 
sprinkles or drizzle over all but the far western and northwestern 
sections. 


Precipitation chances increase slightly Saturday night with 
deepening moisture and the approach of a frontal system from the 
northwest. A slight increase in probability of precipitation expected on Sunday as the front 
draws even closer. Model timing on this feature not good. At 6 PM 
Sunday the GFS has the front bisecting our County Warning Area from NE-SW while the 
European model (ecmwf) has it barely entering the western portions. Either way the 
proximity of the boundary should generate an increase in probability of precipitation. 


Sunday night both the GFS and the European model (ecmwf) generate a NE-SW band of 
Post-frontal precipitation, but due to placement of the boundary, 
the bands of quantitative precipitation forecast differ as well. The GFS shows the best chances over 
the southeast two thirds of the cwa, especially along and near the 
Kentucky/Tennessee border whereas the European model (ecmwf) focuses the best chances over the 
northwest two thirds of the area. 


Precipitation chances should continue into Monday as a short wave 
approaching from the Southern Plains induces a wave on the boundary 
to our south thereby producing overrunning precipitation over the 
area. Placement of quantitative precipitation forecast once again differs between models. Depending 
on how much quantitative precipitation forecast there is over the northwest sections Monday 
afternoon and how quickly the colder air filters in, a little snow 
could be mixed with the rain in that area, but will leave all liquid 
for the time being. 


Monday night the flow aloft will veer around to the northwest enough 
to push the aforementioned boundary and moisture out of all but the 
far southeast sections of our County Warning Area. Right now it appears Tuesday will 
be dry although there could be small chances near the far southeast 
corner of our cwa, but will keep dry for now. 


From Tuesday night through the end of the period long term models 
couldn't be more different. Tuesday night the GFS brings an east-west 
frontal boundary southward toward our region, keeps the boundary to 
our north, then moves it back to the north as a warm front as a 
strong storm system prepares to eject northeast out of the plains on 
Wednesday. To be honest, at this point it's difficult determining 
what the European model (ecmwf) is thinking. It indicates a dry frontal passage 
Tuesday night with surface high pressure overspreading the region on 
Wednesday. For the sake of continuity and collaboration, will follow 
superblend output fairly closely which indicates precipitation 
chances over all or part of our County Warning Area both Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Aviation... 
issued at 520 PM CST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Band of rain/snow moving through the area. Any additional activity 
at kcgi/kpah should be tapering off but lingering rain/snow could 
continue for a few more hours. At kevv/kowb, precipitation is 
knocking at the door and will start out as rain but quickly 
transition to rasn to eventually all snow. Visibilities and cigs 
will come down to MVFR. The precipitation will likely last several 
hours and come to an end close to midnight or so. MVFR conditions 
will linger overnight into Thanksgiving morning. Winds will become 
northwesterly by tonight and into tomorrow as the low departs. We 
should start seeing a break in the ceilings during the afternoon 
hours.
