NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
245 am CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Short term...(today through Monday night) 
issued at 204 am CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


As the upper ridge shifts east...the abundant moisture that is 
seen via satellite just upstream will begin to move in. Expect 
increasing cloudiness and a chance of rain entering the forecast. 
The rain chance will continue to rise as we warm sector during the 
next 24 hours. Instability is marginal/elevated during this time 
frame. Then....after about 00z Monday...we are more firmly entrenched 
with the parent system...and rain chances will be spiking again as 
the middle level wave is poised to come through the forecast area Sunday night. 
With it will come some surface based instability that will drive 
US into the slight risk severe. This area of good probability of precipitation will end upon 
frontal passage Sunday night-early Monday. 


Long term...(tuesday through friday) 
issued at 245 am CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Latest models continue to exhibit good agreement among the various 
operational runs and their ensembles through middle week...with a 
divergence in solutions by late week. However...timing of minor 
impulses in the overall flow pattern generates some inconsistency 
among the models...and this leads to only average confidence in the 
long term forecast. 


An upper level low is forecast to meander over the upper Great Lakes 
region through much of the period...before shifting east into 
northern New England by Friday. Submersed in the cyclonic northwest 
flow on the back side of this low...the immediate forecast area will 
experience a slightly cooler than normal pattern through much of the 
week. Daytime highs should range from the middle 60s to near 70...with 
nighttime lows moderating from the 40s into the lower 50s by late 
week. 


Precipitation chances are much more uncertain at this point...which 
is not surprising given the often tricky nature of northwest flow on 
the back side of a departing low. Yesterday...the GFS started to 
suggest that precipitation could make a return as early as late 
Tuesday and Tuesday night as weak energy translates through the 
larger scale flow. With the latest 00z run...the European model (ecmwf) introduces a 
small chance starting Wednesday. As a result...we plan to stick 
close to the initialized model blend...which keeps a slight chance 
of showers in the forecast Tuesday night through Thursday. 


Rain chances look somewhat better towards the end of the week as 
both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) indicate the potential for more organized 
activity. However...their solutions are rather disparate at this 
point and will be a limiting factor to overall precipitation 
probabilities. 


&& 


Aviation... 
issued at 204 am CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


MVFR ceilings may occasionally scatter to VFR...but will ride the 
MVFR average for the rule. IFR ceilings located in deeper moisture 
over Arkansas/western MO may advect northward into our area later 
tonight...as rain chances appear. MVFR visibilities restrictions in light 
showers will accompany this...lasting through the night and into the 
planning period. It should not be continuous per southeast...so we'll 
alternate between conditional and vicinity wording. 


&& 


Pah watches/warnings/advisories... 
Illinois...none. 
MO...none. 
In...none. 
Kentucky...none.
