NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
241 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Short term...(this evening through Thursday night) 
issued at 125 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Boundary set up across pah forecast area is helping focus showers/storms 
along it. High precipitable waters and efficient rain producing storms is adding 
to predecessor rains to heighten flood concerns...collaborated for 
flash Flood Advisory across entire forecast area through 00z Thursday. 


Anticipate more or less continual pulsing of storms along boundary 
and repeat training over same areas through tonite into tmrw...as 
pieces of energy run along it with parallel flow atop it. This 
will heighten the flooding concerns as well. 


Beyond that...tapering chances as higher pressure builds aloft and 
starts to squeeze out/disintegrate said boundary with time. 
Clouds/convection to hold diurnal ranges down until then. 


Long term...(thursday night through tuesday) 
issued at 241 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


An upper level high over the southeast U.S. Will keep the region in 
a fairly dry and hot weather pattern Friday and into the early part 
of the weekend. A few showers and storms may linger over our 
northeast counties on Friday due to a weak upper level wave moving 
across Illinois/Indiana. Kept some slight to low chance probability of precipitation across 
southwest Indiana and adjacent areas of Illinois and northwest 
Kentucky for Friday. Dry conditions are expected Friday night 
through Sunday. Persistent southwest flow will help temperatures 
climb to around 90 degrees Friday, and into the lower 90s Saturday 
and Sunday. Dew points will also climb back into the lower 70s 
Friday, and this moisture will remain in place through the weekend 
into early next week. This moisture will help afternoon heat 
indices reach the upper 90s to around 100 degrees through the 
extended. 


Sunday night into Monday, GFS and European model (ecmwf) show a surface low sliding 
southeast out of the upper Mississippi Valley. The Canadian seems 
to keep this feature farther north and northeast than the GFS and 
European model (ecmwf). Though the GFS onset of precipitation in our region is a bit 
slower than the ECMWF, overall they are in decent agreement and seem 
a reasonable solution to follow. A small chance of showers and 
thunderstorms will return to our northeast counties by Sunday night, 
then chances will gradually increase from northeast to southwest 
through Tuesday.

Aviation... 
issued at 125 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


MVFR restrictions in areal convection will impact terminals through 
the evening with regard to both cigs/vsbys. Overnight fog may 
limit prevaling visibilities and IFR restrictions may apply late tonite- 
early tmrw in fog/low cloud and/or precipitation. Daytime improvement will 
be gradual with MVFR ceilings lingering and visibilities slow to improve to 
VFR through the planning period.
