NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
620 am CDT Monday may 2 2016 


Update... 
issued at 620 am CDT Mon may 2 2016 


Updated for 12z aviation forecast discussion. 


&& 


Short term...(today through Wednesday night) 
issued at 220 am CDT Mon may 2 2016 


Only average confidence in the short term due to subtle model 
differences regarding multiple light precipitation events. 


With the approach of an 500 mb short wave out of the Central Plains and 
a surface low tracking northeast across the deep south, 
precipitation is forecast to develop over the area today, especially 
the southeast half of the County Warning Area. There may be just enough instability 
over the southern pennyrile region of western Kentucky for thunder, 
so mentioned it there only. 


Until the passage of said 500 mb short wave this evening, scattered 
showers will be possible mainly over the northeast half of the County Warning Area. 
As another short wave drops southeast across the region as it 
rotates around the southwest flank of a huge upper low just north of 
the Great Lakes region on Tuesday, small precipitation chances are 
possible over parts of southeast IL, southwest in, and northwest Kentucky 
where deep layer moisture will be greatest. Tuesday night should be 
dry in the wake of this feature. 


On Wednesday another short wave rotating around the big low will 
push a cold front southward across the region. Again precipitation 
chances should be limited to mainly the northeast half of the County Warning Area 
where moisture is expected to be deepest. Small precipitation 
chances may linger over the far eastern sections of our County Warning Area 
Wednesday evening, then dry after midnight. 


Temperatures will average at to just below normal through the short 
term period. 


Long term...(thursday through sunday) 
issued at 220 am CDT Mon may 2 2016 


We will start out the long term period with strong northwesterly 
flow over the region as a closed low over the Appalachians 
eventually moves out to the eastern Seaboard. Sfc high pressure to 
our northwest will steadily build into the area by Thursday night 
and into Friday providing dry weather. Lingering low level moisture 
will likely mean will have some cloudiness to deal with on Thursday 
as this upper low departs, mainly in our eastern sections. This will 
keep temperatures cool there and in the 60s while most of semo will 
be seeing around 70 degrees. 


While we will remain in northwesterly flow aloft into Friday, we 
will begin to see upper heights rising as a highly amplified upper 
ridge in the central part of the Continental U.S. Steadily moves eastward. 
Therefore, with that said and hopefully less cloudiness, we should 
be able to get everyone into the 70s by Friday. Upper 70s should be 
no problem to reach by Saturday as upper heights rise even further, 
and the sfc high over the region sags southward allowing our winds 
to finally shift to the southwest. 


Our next chance for rain may arrive as early as Sunday/Sunday night 
but models are differing on the speed of our next frontal system. 
The European model (ecmwf) brings the front south into northern parts of the area on 
Sunday and then lift it back north as a warm front Sunday night and 
Monday. The 00z GFS indicates the front never really makes it into 
our County Warning Area before the parent system shifts eastward and brings 
precipitation into the area for Monday. Still too many details to be 
ironed out to warrant getting carried away with anything more than 


&& 


Aviation... 
issued at 620 am CDT sun may 1 2016 


Winds will generally be from the northwest at or below 10kts 
through the period. A series of upper-level disturbances will 
attempt to bring some light showers to the area today and through 
the evening, but nothing that would impact aviation. A lower VFR 
ceiling is expected to develop by afternoon and continue through 
the evening. The main concern will be if cigs will drop at any of 
the sites to MVFR. Best chances might be during the evening and 
overnight when better low level moisture is available. However, a 
band of MVFR cigs will threaten kevv this morning as well.
