.Short Term...(This evening through Sunday)
Updated at 338 PM EDT Sat Jul 20 2019

Afternoon observations reveal another hot and humid day across the 
region.  Under partly to mostly sunny skies temperatures were in the 
upper 80s to the lower 90s.  Dewpoints were averaging in the mid to 
upper 70s which is well above climatological normals for mid-late 
July.  This has resulted in heat index readings in the 99-109 across 
the state.  A few showers did pop earlier across southern KY but a 
few have tried to go up as far north as the Bluegrass Parkway.   For 
the remainder of the afternoon, not expecting much change in the 
weather.  We expect temps falling off slowly into the upper 80s with 
heat indices slowly dropping into the 90s.

For tonight, we expect another quiet evening with temperatures 
falling into the mid-upper 70s, with the urban areas only dropping 
to around 80.

On Sunday, we'll start off as partly to mostly sunny.  However, we 
should see a bit more cloudiness during the day as a cold front 
works in from the northwest.  The best chances of storms will be in 
the mid-late afternoon hours and we'll plan on 30-40% coverage for 
now, but those probabilities will ramp up Sunday night.  Highs look 
to top out in the upper 80s over southern KY with upper 80s to lower 
90s over southern IN and portions of north-central KY.  We still 
have a decent chance of hitting heat index criteria once again, so 
will leave headlines in place for now.  However, if we see more of a 
downward trend in the evening and overnight guidance, we could end 
up dropping the excessive heat warning in subsequent forecasts.

.Long Term...(Sunday night through Saturday)
Updated at 230 AM EDT Sat Jul 20 2019

Expect some much needed relief from these scorching temps and 
dewpoints as we head into the new week. A cold front is forecast to 
move through our CWA early Monday morning through early Tuesday 
morning, which will cause precip chances to ramp up. At this time, 
severe weather seems unlikely, given that forcing mechanisms and 
kinematic profiles are lacking. Instead, heavy rain and gusty winds 
seem to be the primary threats. Highs are currently forecast to 
reach the lower 80s, however, these values may decrease depending on 
cloud cover and timing of the aforementioned front. 

As the front exits our region by Tuesday morning, we will experience 
cooler and drier conditions in its wake. Morning lows on Tuesday and 
Wednesday may feel especially crisp, given that they will be in the 
mid to upper 50s. Haven't seen those values in quite a while! 
Otherwise, expect pleasant and dry weather through Friday, as a 
surface high controls the region. Highs are forecast to climb into 
the low to mid 80s throughout the week and dewpoints will range 
between the mid 50s to 60s. 

A brief period of unsettled weather may return Saturday as a small 
upper level shortwave pushes over our area. However, there are some 
inconsistencies between model guidance in terms of timing and 
amounts, so decided to keep PoPs low at this time.

&&

.Aviation...(00Z TAF Issuance)
Updated at 741 PM EDT Sat Jul 20 2019

Convection continues across SE KY and central TN, however looks to 
largely stay away from our TAF sites. There could be a period in the 
next 2 to 3 hours where showers approach BWG from the east, however 
think convection will die off by then so will not mention VCSH at 
this time.

Otherwise, expect largely VFR night with light and variable winds. 
The best chance for any fog would be at BWG toward dawn, and have 
continued mention of some brief MVFR vis possible. A steady SW wind 
picks up on Sunday, with some sct-bkn VFR clouds and scattered 
thunderstorms possible by afternoon and early evening. Included 
Prob30 mention for best timing on -TSRA potential.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED
National Weather Service Jackson KY
840 PM EDT Sat Jul 20 2019

.UPDATE...
Issued at 717 PM EDT SAT JUL 20 2019

Outflow, from convection down in Tennessee from earlier, has 
initiated some storms across portions of the Cumberland River 
Basin through early this evening. Some of the updrafts have been 
quite robust at times, taking advantage of the ML CAPE of 3000 
J/kg in place. Consequently, raised PoPs through around 8 pm for 
these locations. An outflow boundary continues to move north, 
currently arced from London to Harlan; however, convective 
initiation has been more spotty along it as it gets deeper into
our forecast area. Expect this activity to gradually wane as we 
lose heating. Updates have been sent. 

&&

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Sunday night)
Issued at 438 PM EDT SAT JUL 20 2019

It's the same old story again today, with an upper level ridge
over the area, and a surface ridge to our south. The upper level
ridge was keeping a lid on most deep convection. However, deep
moisture was greater over our southern counties, and combined with
heating of elevated terrain, was resulting a few isolated showers
and thunderstorms. These should die out with a loss of surface
heating this evening, and most of the cu should also dry up. 

The large scale pattern is undergoing changes, and this could
begin to affect our weather late tonight. A upper level trough is
developing over the Great Lakes, and our upper level ridge is
weakening. At the same time, deep moisture to our south is
expected to migrate northward overnight. The combination may lead
to showers and thunderstorms developing toward dawn and into the
day Sunday. 

As the upper trough deepens, a surface cold front will move
southeast and likely be near the Ohio River by early Monday
morning. Models suggest that showers and thunderstorms during the
day on Sunday will probably deplete the atmosphere and largely die
out by evening. Thunderstorms which develop along the cold front
then have a hard time making it here during the night, with our
highest POP holding off until the long term period.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 416 PM EDT SAT JUL 20 2019

The models are in good agreement showing an upper level trough 
deepening as it progresses over the Ohio Valley from Monday 
through Wednesday morning. Meanwhile, a large upper level ridge 
will build over the western CONUS. By midweek, the trough will 
move to the northeast and the ridge will build further east. At 
the surface, a cold front will make its way over the Commonwealth 
Monday, quickly progressing to the south early Tuesday. High 
pressure will then build into the Ohio Valley, eventually shifting
to be to the east of Kentucky by late week. 

This pattern will give way to showers for the start of the work 
week. PWATs continue to be high in the GFS model soundings, 
ranging from 1.90 to 2.15 inches from Monday morning through late 
Monday evening. Thunderstorms will also be possible during this 
time, with MUCAPE values around 2800 J/kg and some shear present 
in the afternoon. However, storm chances are expected to dwindle 
by late Monday evening. As the front exits early Tuesday, showers 
will be on the decrease as well. Dry weather will then be the main
story through the remainder of the week.

Temperatures through the extended will be much cooler than recent
days. High temperatures will begin around 80 degrees before 
dipping into the upper 70s through midweek due to FROPA. Highs 
will return to the mid 80s by Friday and for the start of next 
weekend. Lows will follow suit, starting in the low 60s Tuesday 
morning. By midweek, lows will be in the 50s before returning to 
the mid 60s Saturday morning. Furthermore, with light winds and 
clear skies during the nighttime Wednesday through Friday, the 
valleys will likely be cooler than the ridgetops.

&&

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Sunday evening)
ISSUED AT 840 PM EDT SAT JUL 20 2019

Scattered convection will move off to the west and northwest of a
line from KSME to KLOZ through 01z. Once this exits, VFR 
conditions will return through the rest of the evening, although 
MVFR or worse fog may wind up being a concern at KSME, given a
more direct hit from the passing thunderstorms. Will have to 
monitor this as we get deeper into the evening. River valley fog 
will develop similarly to last night elsewhere through the night. 
Clouds will then increase towards dawn, with at least a small 
chance of showers threatening the area. Shower and thunderstorm 
chances will generally increase through the day on Sunday, which 
may eventually result in the a period of MVFR or worse conditions 
at some point at most locations. Winds outside of thunderstorms 
will average around 5 kts or less, generally out of the southwest.

.SHORT TERM...(Tonight through Monday night)
Issued at 324 PM CDT Sat Jul 20 2019

Noticed some cool waves in the cu field this afternoon as an 
apparent gravity wave from last night's MCS to our north northeast
moved southwest through the region. The related enhanced cu have 
not been able to produce convection, so it is just a cool feature 
on satellite. Not sure if we will get any convection going this 
afternoon over west Kentucky or not, but a 12Z NAM sounding near 
Ft Campbell shows a lot of uncapped CAPE, so will keep the slight 
chances going for the remainder of the afternoon.

As for the Excessive Heat Warning, neither temperatures nor
dewpoints have reached forecast levels this afternoon and most of
the area has heat indices below 105. Given the downward trend of
the last few days, not real confident that it will be any worse on
Sunday, but with the approach of the front and the potential for
an outflow boundary, moisture may pool a bit, so all hope is not
lost. Plan on keeping the Warning intact through its expiration
Sunday.

The 12Z guidance continues to bring some convection northwest into
our southeast counties around daybreak Sunday, but not really sure
why. Will keep the tonight dry, but am more concerned with the
potential for diurnal convection to develop throughout the region,
as 12Z NAM soundings are uncapped by afternoon and have over 3000 
J/kg of CAPE, and over 1000 DCAPE. As mentioned above, there is
also the potential of an outflow boundary to provide a focus for
development in the north by midday. If storms get going they 
should not have any problem producing cold pools and could bounce 
around on their outflows until they eat up all of the instability
over the forecast area. 

Shear would be nearly non-existent, so the storms would be pulsy 
in nature unless they grow into linear segments on the outflow. 
Either way, there will be at least an isolated damaging wind 
threat, and with PWs pushing 2.5" in places, heavy rainfall and
some isolated flooding issues will also be possible.

The models have slowed down the cold front and we now have it
northwest of the Ohio River at 12Z Monday. If we get diurnal
storms going Sunday, there may not be much energy to support
storms Sunday night near the cold front. If we don't get many
storms Sunday, there will likely be significant coverage Sunday 
night along and ahead of the front. Most of the guidance supports 
the Sunday night scenario, so will keep likely PoPs through the 
period, with the best chances in the northeast. Still not much 
shear, so we will have the same concerns as outlined above for 
Sunday.

The later cold frontal passage raises the potential for some 
heating ahead of it over west Kentucky on Monday. Shear will be 
trying to increase, so a few more organized strong to severe storms
will be possible mainly over the Pennyrile in west Kentucky. Of 
course the heavy rain and flooding threat will continue, 
especially if some areas get decent rainfall Sunday or Sunday 
night. 

The front will be out of the area by the end of the day Monday, 
and the convection should not linger too long behind it. Will 
keep decent PoPs mainly in the southeast into the evening, and 
then dry it out throughout the area overnight. Then bring on the
pleasantness!

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Saturday)
Issued at 324 PM CDT Sat Jul 20 2019

Except for the deterministic CMC and perhaps the UKMET in later 
periods, the medium range models/ensemble means appeared to be in 
solid agreement on the rest of the week's forecast, which is a 
rather pleasant, mostly clear, and dry one. We'll take it.

A very amplified mid/upper flow pattern will be in place at the 
beginning of the extended forecast period, with a huge ridge over 
the western CONUS, a deep trof over the eastern CONUS, and slightly 
cyclonic northwesterly flow over the PAH forecast area. Northern 
stream shortwave energy will begin to impinge on the western CONUS 
trof toward the end of the period. Meanwhile, an expansive area of 
surface high pressure will dominate our region into the weekend, as 
the mid/upper flow over us becomes more divergent and slack. As a 
result, low level winds will start out northerly/northeasterly, 
swinging to the east, then finally to the south by Day 7. As the 
airmass modifies, there will be a gradual warming trend in temps 
through the extended forecast period, from significantly below 
average to slightly below average, with only a slight uptick in 
(mostly 60s) dewpoints by Day 7. At this time, the models indicate 
the aforementioned shortwave energy will not approach our region 
closely enough to have an effect on mentionable PoPs for Day 7.

.AVIATION...
Issued at 1239 PM CDT Sat Jul 20 2019

The TAFs are VFR. A stray SHRA or TSRA cannot be ruled out over 
west Kentucky this afternoon, but they should remain south of KOWB
and KPAH. Lower-level clouds will attempt to increase across the
region late tonight through Sunday morning. An MVFR ceiling cannot
be ruled out, but confidence is too low to put it in the forecast
at this time. Scattered SHRA/TSRA development will be possible
after 16Z, but will not mention it that far out in the forecast.
