NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
320 PM CDT Thu Apr 24 2014 


Short term...(tonight through Saturday night) 
issued at 320 PM CDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Finally have some lower 50s surface dewpoints spreading into 
southeast Missouri as of 19z. It has taken most of the day, but 
mid to upper 50 dewpoints seem reasonable for much of the area 
ahead of the storms late this afternoon and this evening. 
Instability is still meager at best, and the forcing associated 
with the mid/upper-level trough will be the main instigating 
factor for this event. 


The hrrr has been fairly consistent through the day at bringing 
the first of the showers and storms into Ripley and Carter 
counties around 22z, and to the Mississippi River by 00z. It 
appears as though the convection will become more organized as it 
moves east over the remainder of the region through 06z. 


Model soundings indicate impressive 0-3km srh values, certainly 
enough to support rotating updrafts, but the forcing is likely to 
result in a linear event. So, would expect wind damage to be the 
main concern with some minor potential for a brief tornado or two 
with mesovortices or embedded supercell structures. Not sure just 
how much severe weather there will be, given the struggling 
moisture and instability. This may result in a better severe 
threat across southeast Missouri and west Kentucky, where the 
better low-level moisture will be located. 


The 12z models are in reasonable agreement that there will be some 
wrap-around showers late tonight across the northeast half of the 
area, as the main mid/upper trough moves through the region. The 
showers may last through sunrise, especially in the Owensboro 
area. Increased pops to likely levels for this activity. 


The 12z models leave little to debate for Friday through Saturday, 
but they do diverge a bit in the location of the weak frontal 
boundary by 12z Sunday. The GFS brings the boundary into the tri 
state area, while the NAM keeps it northeast of the area. It 
basically stalls out, and takes on the look of a warm front, and 
the models are dry through 12z Sunday, so it will not make much 
difference. 


As for temperatures, will lean to the warm side of guidance for 
lows tonight through Saturday night, and for highs on Saturday. 
Guidance has cooled things down a few degrees for highs Friday, so 
decided to blend the consensus of 12z guidance with the previous 
forecast. 


Long term...(sunday through thursday) 
issued at 320 PM CDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


During the day sun, a large scale, deep low pressure system will 
approach the pah forecast area from the west, as agreed on by the 
GFS/European model (ecmwf) ensemble means. Individual deterministic runs of the Med 
range models began to differ with the details after Mon (day 6), but 
agreement on the mid level and sfc features was not bad for that 
time frame. 


Some time on Sun morning, a warm front ahead of the system will 
begin its trek nwd across the region. This, combined with divergence 
aloft, deep moisture advection and instability, will result in 
plentiful tstm activity west of the MS river, and scattered tstms 
east of the MS river. Sun night/Mon/Mon night, showers will be 
nearly a sure thing, with the best chance of tstms during the day 
time hours. Due to multiple rounds of deep moist convection, and the 
slower movement of the overall system, heavy rainfall amounts are 
possible. Wind shear increases aloft Mon, and with available 
instability, severe weather is possible into the evening. 


From Tue through Wed night, pcpn chances are forecast to gradually 
wane as the nearly stacked low pressure system wobbles through the 
Midwest. The last signal for instability tstms appeared to be Tue. 
There could be a resurgence of showers Thu as energy wraps around 
the back side of the vast mid/upper low, as it possibly begins to 
depart.

VFR conditions are expected this afternoon with just a few cu 
around 5kft expected around kcgi late this afternoon. Used a 2 to 3 
hour tempo group to time the main line of thunderstorms through 
the area this evening and tonight. As the line gets more organized 
with time this evening, the thunder potential may linger awhile 
longer at kevv and kowb. Also the models are indicating more in 
the way of wrap-around showers lingering potentially past 12z at 
kevv and kowb. Not sure if visibilities will drop to MVFR levels, 
but ceilings will certainly be there through daybreak, and IFR 
ceilings are likely at least for part of that time. 
Scattering/clearing is expected in the east by late morning. 


Winds will increase and become gusty from the south or south 
southeast this afternoon and evening, and then veer to southwest 
behind the main line of convection. Gusts into the mid 20kts can 
be expected in the western half of the area this afternoon. They 
will eventually veer to the west northwest Friday morning, as the 
whole storm system moves east of our area. Some gusts into the 
teens will be possible Friday morning.
