NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
1208 am CDT sun Aug 30 2015 


Update... 
issued at 1208 am CDT sun Aug 30 2015 


Updated aviation discussion for 06z tafs. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through Monday night) 
issued at 156 PM CDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Higher surface td's and lower pressure aloft are helping induce 
isolated to widely scattered showers in a more tropical like 
atmosphere, and will continue to do so through the remainder of 
the weekend. GFS appears largely overdone on convection but slgt 
chance to low chance mentions are not too robust for the package, 
esp on our cwa periphery/collaboratively speaking. 


Low pressure aloft hangs around the mid MS and Tennessee valleys into the 
early week and with surface high pressure to the east...moist 
southerlys will keep low layer moisture flux sufficient for daily 
pop mentionables. 


Highs/lows will remain nearly constant on the diurnal basis with 
M-u80s/u60s-nr70s the rule. 


Long term...(tuesday through saturday) 
issued at 156 PM CDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Very warm and humid conditions will continue through the long-term 
period under an expansive 500 mb ridge covering most of the eastern 
and central states. The temperature forecast is straightforward, but 
the precip forecast is not quite as clear. Most model guidance still 
indicates this will be a dirty ridge, meaning that weak impulses and 
pockets of scattered convection will be embedded within the ridge. 


The general model theme has been for a weak upper low to meander 
across the lower Mississippi Valley through the entire long term 
period. By late next week, this weak upper low may capture the 
remnants of Tropical Storm Erika as it moves across the eastern Gulf 
of Mexico. For the most part, the models have been keeping the upper 
low and its associated qpf to the south and southeast of western Kentucky. 
Therefore, the forecast will be kept mostly dry. A slight chance pop 
will be kept for southern parts of western Kentucky during the more 
unstable afternoon hours. There have been a few very notable 
exceptions to the consensus, namely the 06z run of the GFDL 
hurricane model, which brought a strong tropical system directly 
into west Kentucky. 


As for temps, the stagnant air mass will translate into very little 
change through the week. Highs will generally be around 90 with lows 
in the mid to upper 60s. Model 850 mb temps are in the upper teens, 
and ECMWF and GFS 2 meter temps and MOS guidance are all very 
similar. 


&& 


Aviation... 
issued at 1208 am CDT sun Aug 30 2015 


A band of moisture associated with the presence of a weak mid level 
trough will keep broken VFR clouds in place through much of the 
forecast period. Added a vcsh mention to both kcgi and kpah tafs 
overnight given the increase in light shower activity over southern 
Illinois and southeast Missouri. Where it does occur, most of the 
shower activity should be intermittent and light. Patchy MVFR fog is 
also possible late tonight, but the cloud cover should preclude more 
widespread coverage. Winds will be light and variable tonight, then 
south-southwest at or below 10 knots on Sunday.

Illinois...none. 
MO...none. 
In...none.
