NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
1158 am CDT Thu Jul 24 2014 


Short term...(today through Saturday night) 
issued at 238 am CDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


High pressure building in the wake of overnight fropa, will yield 
lower temperatures and humidity today into Friday, with dry 
weather forecast. Will side with a blend of raw model output and MOS 
given the transition. 


The NAM becomes the outlier Friday night through Saturday night with 
respect to return flow and convective chances. The NAM develops 
convection and drops it into semo and southern Illinois by 12z Sat, while the 
GFS and European model (ecmwf) keep it dry through midday Saturday until convective 
chances appear in the afternoon across the northern sections of 
our County warning forecast area. The NAM has been fairly bad about overdoing moisture and 
potential convection recently. Having said that, discounting it 
can sometimes be the wrong way to go too. We are blended between 
the NAM vs. GFS/European model (ecmwf) solutions for now. For several days, the 
models have hinted at a convective complex moving southeast and possibly 
affecting at least some of our County warning forecast area Saturday night, especially 
northern sections. This continues to be reflected in our pops. But 
given the drier look to the GFS and European model (ecmwf) solutions, no more than 
chance pops for now north, tapering to slights south, until there 
is more clarity. Overall confidence in timing and placement of 
convective chances is lower than average Friday night through 
Saturday night. Assuming convection doesn't alter things, Saturday 
should be rather hot. Highs in the low to mid 90s, with heat 
indices around 100, possibly slightly higher west of a kmvn to 
kpah line. 


Long term...(sunday through wednesday) 
issued at 238 am CDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


The main feature that will bring US a chance for convection in the 
long term is a frontal boundary that will be advancing from the 
northwest on Sunday. Models are indicating convection developing 
along the front Sat/Sat night to our north, that may creep into 
portions of the area Sunday morning. Otherwise, the cold front will 
be the focus for additional scattered development during the day on 
Sunday as it moves through. Looking back on the past several runs of 
the GFS/ECMWF, there is not much support for widespread convection 
at this point, so will keep probability of precipitation in the low chance category for now. 
Best chances will be in the east of the Mississippi River, closer to 
the evv tri state region. A lot will depend on how the convection 
from Saturday night plays out. But the GFS precip ensembles and the 
precip mean are not too exciting at this point. However, wind fields 
will be increasing throughout the day and with highs in the upper 
80s to lower 90s (depending on cloud cover) and dewpoints in the 
lower 70s, this could support a few strong to severe thunderstorms. 


The GFS and European model (ecmwf) agree that convection will exit the area Sunday 
evening, so left some lingering probability of precipitation in parts of west Kentucky but then 
dry after midnight. Another extended period of dry weather and well 
below normal temperatures/ humidity is forecast through next week. 
High pressure will be sliding south from central Canada early in the 
week and become centered over our region by Wednesday. Much cooler 
and drier air will filter into the area, with 850 mb temps dropping in 
the lower teens to even single digits in a few places. Looking at 
the guidance numbers for the past several days, there has been a 
definite shift from climo to temps much below normal and models 
seemed to have settled on lower to mid 80s for highs for next week. 
However, would not be surprised to see upper 70s in some places.

VFR conditions to predominate for majority of weather forecast office pah taf sites 
through forecast period. Main adjustments made to account for mean 
wind directional changes through forecast period and for the 
development of diurnal cumulus cloud bases and ceilings. 


For kcgi, specifically, two items. To accommodate for fog 
climatology near observation site, adjusted early morning 
visibility to MVFR and isolated IFR development (mifg). The second 
issue was to pass along that the haze reports associated with the 
kcgi observation this morning were due to construction work being 
done near the ASOS sensor. This should be a temporary condition 
and was not reflected in the forecast for this taf site.
