NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
325 am CDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


Short term...(today through wednesday) 
issued at 102 am CDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


With the front and its associated precipitation departing the forecast area...we'll 
see high pressure work into and across the Tennessee Valley today. 
Temperatures will be recovering into the 60s forecast area wide today with 
ample sunshine returning. 


The high settles across the southeast U.S. Tonight...as a low 
pressure system races across the upper Ohio Valley. More warming 
Tuesday will see temperatures into the 70s for highs. 


Upper heights ridge across the Mississippi River valley Wednesday. 
Some moisture will be riding into/topping this ridge...as low 
pressure develops in the plains states. This warm air advection 
transport will ultimately result in some chance category probability of precipitation for 
US...particularly semo...during the day Wednesday. The rising 
heights should be enough to offset the cooling effect of increased 
clouds/chance of precipitation and we should see another day in the 70s 
Wednesday. 


Long term...(wednesday night through sunday) 
issued at 325 am CDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


The upper level flow pattern will be much unlike the pattern of the 
past couple months. The most noticeable difference will be the 
development of a longwave trough axis along or just off the West 
Coast of the USA. This troughing will favor a broad/low amplitude 
ridge over the central states...though a very progressive low 
amplitude trough will migrate across the northern USA late in the 
week. The net result of this pattern change will be warmer Spring 
temperatures...punctuated by weak/brief intrusions of colder air from 
Canada. 


The long term period will start off with a broad southerly flow of 
modified Gulf air Wednesday night and Thursday. Boundary layer dew 
points will climb to around 60 with MUCAPES generally at or below 
1000 j/kg. Isolated showers or thunderstorms are possible Wednesday 
night...but coverage should be higher on Thursday with the effect of 
daytime heating. Probability of precipitation will be around 50 percent on Thursday. 
Forecast highs will be in the 70s Thursday. 


The main system of interest continues to be the progressive/low 
amplitude 500 mb shortwave that will cross the plains on Friday. The 
associated frontal boundary is likely to bring a round of showers 
and storms. Probability of precipitation will be in the likely category both Thursday night 
and Friday. The models have been in a state of flux concerning the 
timing of this front across our area. The 00z model suite has 
trended a little slower. Most guidance brings the front southeast 
into the lower Ohio Valley around 12z Friday. The front then stalls 
as a low pressure center moves northeast across the lower Ohio 
Valley on Friday. A narrow swath of heavy rain in the 2 to 3 inch 
range is depicted by the 00z GFS/European model (ecmwf) along or just south of the 
low track. Shear and instability parameters in the warm sector are 
favorable for severe weather potential. Of course...the models are 
still in a state of flux...so the timing and location of heavy 
rainfall/severe potential is still not settled. 


Following the passage of the system...clearing and cooler conditions 
will arrive by early Saturday. The weekend appears generally cool 
and dry. The air mass in this quasi-zonal flow pattern will not be 
as cool as this past weekend. However...frost potential exists both 
Saturday and Sunday mornings. Depending on the effects of this weeks 
warmer temperatures on plant growth...any frost could have some impacts.

Aviation... 
issued at 102 am CDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


Surface high pressure working into and across the Tennessee Valley 
today will serve to clear out any lingering middle and high cloud 
ceilings early in the day. As the high shifts east tonight...high 
clouds may again develop/move in from the west...but VFR rules 
will persist.

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