NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
603 am CDT Friday may 22 2015 


Short term...(today through Sunday night) 
issued at 254 am CDT Friday may 22 2015 


The trend for the domination of ridging aloft continues with this 
forecast cycle...keeping precipitation at Bay across the weather forecast office pah 
through late Saturday night. If anything, the signal has become a 
little stronger in the last 24-36 hours. This is well represented 
by several members of the short term high resolution and medium 
range numerical model guidance. 


The closed low currently off the central California coast is 
serving as the genesis point for the amplification of the ridge 
and the eventual impinging south/southwesterly flow and source 
region for vorticity lobes rotating around the low. Once the low 
moves into the central rockies late Saturday, it will tap into and 
enhance the flow of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico behind the 
surface ridge off the East Coast. 


The aforementioned scenario will set up a west to east pop 
gradient across the weather forecast office pah forecast area, as a more unstable 
thermal profile comes into play in the west under the weakening 
influence of the departing upper ridge axis. This will also place 
the western 1/3 to 1/2 of the weather forecast office pah forecast area in the favored 
zone for isentropic lift within the warm conveyor belt. The 
potential for greater precipitation efficiency and locally heavy 
rains will be more likely in this area on Sunday. 


Differential heating during the day on Sunday in the western 1/2 
of the weather forecast office pah forecast area may play in the development of 
diurnally induced and isolated strong storms. There may be a mix 
of isolated pulse type thunderstorms on the leading edge with 
downdraft potential... with some multicell storms further west 
with marginal hail and localized wind gusts and outflow mergers 
supporting renewed development. The key will be the degree of 
0-3/0-6km bulk shear...which at this point is pretty meager...around 
25 knots or less. 


Despite adjusting maximum/min temperatures downward this week, maximum/min 
temperatures have still been slightly warmer than observations. 
Tried to adjust for the warm bias...but still may be too warm 
through the weekend. 


Long term...(monday through thursday) 
issued at 254 am CDT Friday may 22 2015 


Respectable model run to run consistency has persisted over the past 
72 hours with respect to the overall middle tropospheric pattern across 
North America. A ridge both surface and aloft over the southeast U.S. Is 
expected...while some semblance of an upper trough over the west 1/2 
of the Continental U.S. Breaks down and results in a broad west-southwest flow aloft 
across much of the country by middle to late week. Warm and muggy 
conditions can be expected during the long term. A blend of ensemble 
MOS...and existing numbers were used for temperatures. 


For Memorial Day...will hold onto likely probability of precipitation. But again...to offer 
any detail on placement of higher vs. Lower pop values is not 
attainable given model output (ecmwf area wide...GFS now higher probability of precipitation 
east vs. West 2/3 of the area). Best probability of precipitation should shift east Monday 
night...then rise again from the south Tuesday in response to a middle 
level shortwave forecast to eject NE into the plains. 


Considerable spread remains within the ensemble suites...which is 
important for the middle to late week period. The operational models 
show greater resolution with and emphasis on the aforementioned 
upper level trough forecast to move from the plains to the Ohio Valley 
region and Great Lakes Tuesday night through Thursday. The ensembles 
means do not resolve this feature to the same degree. Therefore our 
confidence decreases in the overall strength...forecast moisture and 
resultant precipitation chances associated with this feature. Will continue 
with low to moderate chance probability of precipitation but nothing higher for now. We 
believe the blend suite weighted with wpc guidance offers too much 
detail and occasionally too high probability of precipitation for such uncertainty.
