NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
1136 PM CDT sun Jul 27 2014 


Update... 
issued at 1136 PM CDT sun Jul 27 2014 


Updated the aviation discussion for the 06z taf issuance. 


&& 


Short term...(tonight through Tuesday night) 
issued at 257 PM CDT sun Jul 27 2014 


There are a couple of surface boundaries of note this afternoon. 
The cold front was approaching the Wabash and Ohio rivers, and it 
Marks the back edge of the hot air. Unfortunately, the 70 
dewpoints extend quite a way to the northwest to another more 
subtle wind shift extending from just north of stl to the southern 
tip of Lake Michigan. 


Along and south of the cold front, heat indices have climbed to 
105 and even a bit above. With little cooling expected, have 
already issued a heat advisory til 00z. The winds on both sides of 
the front have not materialized as forecast, so to keep the 
headline clutter down, have cancelled the lake Wind Advisory. 


The thermonuclear cap appears to have effectively shut down any 
potential for convection with the cold front this afternoon. The 
latest hrrr actually tries to build storms westward along it across 
Tennessee this evening, keeping our area dry. Convection along the dewpoint 
boundary over east central Illinois is moving east and there is no 
sign of it developing farther south toward our northern 
territories. Will continue to monitor for southwestward 
development, but will keep the grids dry for now. 


The dry, cool surface high pressure will eventually push the soup 
out of our region tonight, and northerly winds will be the rule 
into Tuesday. Had to fabricate some sky grids to account for the 
extensive stratocu expected to overspread the area Monday. 
Otherwise, there is little to discuss about the short term 
forecast. 


As for temperatures, stayed close to consensus guidance for lows 
tonight and Monday night, but went below guidance Tuesday night, 
when the best radiational cooling is expected. For highs, undercut 
guidance Monday with significant cloud cover at least through the 
afternoon. Didn't stray too far from consensus for highs on 
Tuesday. 


Long term...(wednesday through sunday) 
issued at 257 PM CDT sun Jul 27 2014 


Above medium confidence in the extended with decreasing certainty 
into the weekend. 


Although there is still some run to run discontinuity especially 
with the GFS. The models are consistently decreasing pops late week 
and into the weekend. However the operational GFS come into much 
better agreement with the upper level trough late in the week. Its 
previous run indicated a slower cut off upper low over the lower 
Ohio Valley. Now the 12z Sunday run shows a progressive open low 
lifting out of the area quickly. This would be a reflection of the 
lower pops from the extended init. Also with a north wind 
predominant through the week with some easterly flow at 
times...would not expect to advect adequate moisture for a 
widespread rain event. However with a major upper level trough 
swinging through and dew points in the 60s combined with daytime 
heating could yield at least chance or slight chance for 
thunderstorms. 


Tweaked temps down a degree or two from what the extended init 
yielded mostly for collaboration purposes.

Aviation... 
issued at 1136 PM CDT sun Jul 27 2014 


In the wake of a frontal passage earlier today, high pressure will 
overspread the region snuffing out the potential for precipitation 
at the taf sites. Skies overnight should be mostly clear, but 
there could be a VFR cig in the 035-040 range between 14-22z 
Monday, especially at kevv/kowb. Northwest to north winds at or below 10 
knots will continue through the period at kcgi/kpah, but at 
kevv/kowb expect northwest winds at or below 10 knots overnight, gusty 
northwest winds between 15-01z, then back to at or below 10 knots after 01z.
