NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
327 am CDT Fri Oct 31 2014 


Short term...(today through Sunday night) 
issued at 308 am CDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Cold Canadian high pressure will move slowly east into the region 
today and tonight, and will remain in control of the weather 
through the upcoming weekend. Blustery north winds will increase 
to 15 to 20 miles per hour by afternoon with gusts up near 30 miles per hour. Winds will 
stay up into the evening hours as temperatures fall quickly through 
the 40s and into the 30s. Will feel closer to 30 when winds are 
factored in this evening. Overnight lows will likely fall below 
freezing by dawn Saturday, but the coldest night will likely come 
Saturday night as the high pressure system moves overhead. In 
fact, a hard freeze will be probable in many locations. Thus, will 
continue ongoing freeze warning for both nights. 


Long term...(monday through thursday) 
issued at 308 am CDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


South winds will increase across the region on Monday ahead of an 
approaching cold front. Temperatures will continue to moderate back 
up to near normal readings for Monday and Monday night. European model (ecmwf) 
brings the cold front across the pah forecast area Tuesday into 
Tuesday night, while GFS is about 6 hours slower. Gem solution is 
now really slowing the front down and tries to hang it up over our 
area, so focus of forecast will remain on an European model (ecmwf)/GFS blend. 
European model (ecmwf) brings some light precip into west/northwest portions of the 
fa late Monday night, while GFS holds off until Tuesday morning, but 
model consistency leans toward keeping some small pops in before 12z 
Tuesday. Bulk of precip will be late Tuesday into early Wednesday, 
and went likely pops for our west/northwest counties on Tuesday, all 
but our far southeast counties Tuesday night, then across our 
southeast counties Wednesday. Although timing is still a little bit 
in questions, do feel pretty confident all area will receive 
measurable rainfall within that time frame. Behind the front, dry 
conditions will return as a weak upper level ridge moves over the 
area. Near to a little below normal temperatures can be expected.

Aviation... 
issued at 1142 PM CDT Thu Oct 30 2014 


Main aviation concern is strong winds behind a cold front that 
will cross our region very early Friday morning. Showers have 
diminished ahead of the front...and no significant vsby concerns 
are expected. There will likely be MVFR cigs developing along the 
front toward daybreak. These cigs will rise above VFR thresholds 
by about 18z. Strong and gusty north to northwest winds will 
develop behind the front Friday morning...with a few gusts to 30 
knots likely from midday to sunset.
