.Forecast Update...
Issued at 1045 AM EST Mon Nov 19 2018

Cool, cloudy, damp weather will continue today. With this update we 
added some patchy drizzle. Also, MaxT was bumped up a bit since some 
locations have already risen to near or a bit above earlier thoughts 
for maximum temperatures today.

&&

.Short Term...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 250 AM EST Mon Nov 19 2018

The holiday work week is starting off a little gloomy, but warmer 
than we've been in 11-12 days! That warmth does come with some good 
chances for light rain this morning over southern Indiana and north 
of the Parkways in Kentucky. By afternoon the best chances will 
shift east to the I-75 corridor. Tonight, a west wind will drive 
those rain chances into the eastern half of Kentucky and bring a 
return to temperatures in the 30s.

.Long Term...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 240 AM EST Mon Nov 19 2018

...Tranquil weather for travelers Wednesday and Thanksgiving 
festivities Thursday, then rain returns for shoppers by late Friday 
and Friday night...

Tuesday...

Colder air will overspread southern IN and central KY on Tuesday. 
Low-level clouds will persist with a NW surface breeze, although 
later in the day, partial clearing may occur over west-central KY. 
Temperatures will show only modest diurnal rise from morning lows, 
held down by the clouds and/or cold advection from the NW. Expect 
highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s. With the low-level moisture, 
some sprinkles are possible, especially over the Bluegrass area. 
However, model soundings and time-height cross-sections suggest the 
moist layer will not be cold enough for ice crystal formation, with 
a boundary layer above freezing, limiting snow flurry potential at 
this time.

Wednesday and Thanksgiving...

A dry W to NW flow aloft and surface high pressure over the TN 
Valley will provide tranquil weather for our area. This means no 
weather concerns for those traveling Wednesday or for holiday 
festivities and much eating on Thanksgiving. It will be cool 
Wednesday with highs in the mid and upper 40s. Then after a chilly 
start around 30/lower 30s Thanksgiving morning, temperatures in the 
afternoon should reach the upper 40s to mid 50s with plenty of 
sunshine to brighten everyone's day.

Friday and Saturday...

A fast moving trough axis will move across the central U.S. and OH 
Valley Friday and Saturday. Low-to-mid-level moisture return will be 
quick on the heals of a 40-50 kt low-level jet. This will bring rain 
showers to our entire area, starting in our western counties Friday 
afternoon, then spreading quickly across the rest of our area Friday 
night into Saturday morning. Note that the ECMWF and GEM hold precip 
in longer on Saturday than the GFS. It will become breezy as well 
Friday in advance of this system. Before the rain starts, highs 
Friday should reach the 50s. Low clouds will linger after precip 
ends later Saturday, with highs again in the 50s.

Sunday and Monday...

Medium range models diverge in their solutions for late next weekend 
and early next week. However, all models do show potential for 
another weather system to bring rain showers to our area Sunday 
and/or Monday. The ECMWF/GEM's system is deeper and slower than the 
more progressive GFS. Change in model solutions are expected over 
the next several days as this event draws closer in time.

.Aviation...(12Z TAF Issuance)
Updated at 615 AM EST Mon Nov 19 2018

A stream of low-mid level moisture is building into the region this 
hour. Seeing rains over the I-64 terminals this hour. A glancing 
blow is possible down at KBWG this morning. A wind shift will come 
in from the west and signal lower cigs, with IFR or event LIFR 
possible by this afternoon and likely lingering late in the period.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
National Weather Service Jackson KY
712 AM EST Mon Nov 19 2018

.UPDATE...
Issued at 656 AM EST MON NOV 19 2018

Continuing to monitor rainfall to our north and west. The
scattered showers in the west seem to be on target for reaching
the CWA in the next few hours, which could result in some light 
rain. Meanwhile, clouds moving across the CWA continue to have
some pockets of clearing. This has allowed great variability in
the temperatures overnight. Have made several updates through the
early morning hours to make sure the near term forecast was on
track with the current observations. Temperatures should begin
rising this point forward as we head into the day, winds increase
from the South, and clouds overspread more of the CWA. All updates
have been published and sent to NDFD/web.

&&

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Tuesday)
Issued at 411 AM EST MON NOV 19 2018

A cold front is currently making its way through the state, draped 
across the northern portion of the CWA with a developing low 
pressure center just off to our west as of 9Z. As this low pressure 
center continues to move northeast, the frontal movement has stalled 
and will remain so for a few more hours, before finally picking back 
up its eastward trek this morning, traversing the CWA through this 
afternoon. A secondary, reinforcing cold front is then poised to 
make its way across the state tonight, but it will be weak, and is 
forecast to dissipate across the central and eastern KY by Tuesday 
morning. A broad area of high pressure to our SW will then shift 
towards the CWA during the day Tuesday. Deep NW flow aloft will also 
pull drier but much colder air into the region during this time as 
well.

As for sensible weather, still looking at more of an anafront 
situation, in which the precipitation is generally located behind 
the front following the mid and upper-level shortwave also passing 
through the region. A large swath of precipitation has now formed 
north of the Ohio River, and will likely remain along this axis so 
long as the surface cold front remains stationary. As this front is 
expected to begin moving during the morning hours, pops will slowly 
make their way SE and into the CWA. Have chance pops moving into the 
far northern CWA between 12 and 15Z, then overspreading the northern 
and western extents of the CWA by 18z, before finally taking hold 
across the remainder of the CWA by 21Z. There could be some 
enhancement along the SE border by 0Z as the precip interacts with 
the front across the same location during this time. However, 
overall, precip amounts should remain light with this system. 
Forecast soundings continue to show only a shallow layer of 
moisture, which would only support light QPF amounts. Low clouds and 
generally scattered pops will remain in the forecast through much of 
the night tonight as the secondary front moves through and the axis 
of the upper level shortwave moves across the state. 

By late tonight (far west)/Tuesday morning (elsewhere), drier W to 
NW flow will filter into the region, cutting off best precip 
potential from west to east. Did leave in the mention of some 
sprinkles on the backside of the precip during the morning hours as 
llvl clouds are expected to linger a bit before lifting in the 
afternoon. 

As for temperatures, southerly flow will boost temps well into the 
50s for much of the CWA for this afternoon. However, colder air will 
quickly filter into the region on the backside of the reinforcing 
cold front for late tonight and tomorrow. Temperatures will only 
reach the upper 30s and low 40s for highs across much of the CWA. 

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday night through Sunday)
Issued at 425 AM EST MON NOV 19 2018

The period will begin with a ridge extending across much of the
western US into the Canadian Rockies with an upper level low
centered over the Hudson Bay region and a trough extending south
into the eastern Conus. West northwest to northwest flow will be 
across the region between the eastern trough and western ridge. At
the surface, high pressure is initially expected to be centered 
over the Arklatex to mid MS Valley region with ridging extending 
into East KY. 

From Tuesday night into Thursday generally gradual height rises
are anticipated across the OH Valley as the axis of mid and upper
level trough shifts east and the axis of the mid and upper level 
ridge of high pressure moves east into and across the Plains and
reaches the MS Valley by sunset on Thursday. A trough that will
initially be nearing the west Coast of the Conus to start the
period will move into the western Conus from Tuesday night into
Thursday. Surface high pressure moving across the Great Lakes 
will eventually build into the area as a weak cold front dropping 
south of the Great Lakes and into the mid Atlantic states and OH 
Valley becomes diffuse. Thursday night into Friday, the mid and 
upper level ridge as well as surface high pressure will move east 
of the area with a shortwave trough that will have moved across 
the western US and across the Plains will approach the OH Valley 
as by Friday evening a broad upper level trough will encompasses 
much for the Western and Central Conus.

A shortwave trough will move across East KY Friday night into
Saturday as a weakening surface low pressure system moves across 
the area. At the same time, a surface low pressure system will 
organize over the Southeast Conus and track off the mid Atlantic 
Coast through Sunday. As the weekend progresses the model guidance
is less consistent with a general theme of a ridge moving into 
the western Conus a downstream trough over the Plains to possibly 
Eastern Conus and ridge further east over the western Atlantic. 
Models vary from run to run with this scenario with the past two 
ECMWF runs slower moving the next trough east toward the Eastern 
Conus with a closed low developing over the Plains to end the 
week. Meanwhile, the GFS runs generally move an upper level 
trough axis toward the region with a surface low pressure system 
also nearing the area to end the period. Thus, uncertainty 
increases beyond Friday night. 

With high pressure generally dominating from Tuesday night into
Thursday night to early on Friday, that period should be tranquil
with a gradual warm up from high temperatures for Wednesday that
will be 10 degrees below normal. This pattern will mean tranquil
and rather pleasant weather for the Thanksgiving day travel on 
Wednesday and on Thanksgiving day period itself. The weather will
turn unsettled by Friday evening and Friday night with overall 
good model agreement in rain working into the region. The best 
chance for rain before sunset on Friday will be generally along 
and west of Interstate 75 with high confidence in measurable rain 
and possibly a soaking rain from Friday night to early on 
Saturday. QPF for this event appears to generally be on the order 
of a half to three quarters of an inch. 

With all the uncertainty in the upper level pattern and timing of
systems particularly form midday Saturday on, low chance pops were
used at this point and stuck very close to model blended guidance
for pops during that time. The unsettled pattern with a
considerable amount of clouds anticipated would lead to lower
diurnal ranges over the weekend. 

&&

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Tuesday morning)
ISSUED AT 712 AM EST MON NOV 19 2018

A cold front is currently parked across central and NE Kentucky, 
and will continue to move eastward across eastern KY throughout
the day. This will result in increasing and lowering CIGS, along 
with increasing rainfall potential during the day. VFR flight 
conditions will gradually drop into MVFR territory during the mid 
to late afternoon. VCSH are expected across much of the CWA 
throughout the afternoon, increasing to likely coverage between 
21Z and 0Z at locations south of KSYM. VCSH will then continue 
throughout the overnight as an upper level disturbance moves 
across the region. All rain should generally be light, with little
restrictions to visibility below 6 miles. As this upper level 
disturbance moves across overnight, expect CIGS to continue to 
deteriorate, likely falling into the IFR category for the 
remainder of the TAF period. Winds will shift from SW this morning
to a more Wrly direction after the frontal passage, generally
under 10 knots. However, it is possible that some higher gusts
could mix down with any rain showers.

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Wednesday night)
Issued at 138 AM CST Mon Nov 19 2018

Rain will depart this morning, as a slow moving cold front pushes
off to the east. Clouds will likely linger awhile longer, as the
mean upper long wave trof has some more energing swinging thru its
base. While breaks may occur, don't anticipate we'll see a good 
clearout til this the final mean trof makes passage tonight.

After that, we see surface high pressure work in for Tuesday.
Sounding analysis shows drier air overcoming the column Tuesday-
Wednesday. While Tuesday will be another cold one, we'll start to
modify the airmass as the High moves east, with some 50s and 30s 
returning to the forecast for the last day before Thanksgiving. 

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Sunday)
Issued at 138 AM CST Mon Nov 19 2018

Low confidence in this weekend's forecast. Models have flip 
flopped all around with timing of this next system. 

We will start off with upper level ridging over the area for the 
holiday with temperatures at or above normal and dry conditions for 
the region. This will not last into the end of the week with models 
continuing to bring yet another storm system into the region. The
models do agree that a couple of system will move through 
starting Friday and through the weekend but the timing is in 
question. They have however come into better agreement that rain 
chances will begin Friday afternoon. The ECMWF and the Canadian 
have come more in line with the operational GFS in keeping the 
upper short wave open, allowing for a more rapid approach and 
departure and will heavily weight this solution. 

In the system's wake, we have another short wave rotate through 
the region, bringing another chance of precipitation via the GFS 
solution while the ECMWF is slower, moving it through Sunday. 
Finally the ECMWF is the slowest, bringing it through Sunday 
night. Of course the ensembles take a little of each run as well 
as the blend so the chances are extended over a greater length of 
time. So again confidence is low with the weekend forecast. If the
slower ECMWF solution comes to fruition it could turn into a mix 
of precipitation Sunday night but it is way too far out to make 
that call at this time. So we will warm to at or above normal 
temperatures at the start of the weekend, then cool a little this
weekend. 

Thunder will be hard to come by. With an inversion in place 
through the weekend we do not expect any surface based convection.
K index values peak in the mid 20s Friday night with elevated 
CAPES near 50 j/kg2 so a clap of thunder can not be ruled out but 
not very likely. As previously stated theses systems do not 
originate from the polar or arctic region so temperature drops 
should be mild.

&&

.AVIATION...
Issued at 138 AM CST Mon Nov 19 2018

As rains end this morning, restricted vsbys will linger with fog,
then improve during the early daytime hours as the rain moves out.
Cigs will remain restricted thru much of the day, and likely won't
improve til the upper trof sweeps thru tonight. Dry air comes in
after that, overtaking the column as High pressure moves in at the
surface.
