.Short Term...(Today and Tonight) 
Issued at 300 AM EDT Sat May 26 2018

Energy from a mid level shortwave will move through the region today 
bringing chances for showers/storms throughout the day.  A few 
small, isld showers have been noted over the area early this 
morning.  Expect showers to increase toward sunrise with rumbles of 
thunder developing as well.  Isld-sct convection looks likely this 
morning.  We may see a lull or just a few cells late morning/early 
afternoon before sct-numerous showers/storms develop this 
afternoon/early evening as the main shortwave energy combines with 
peak instability. Although no severe threat exists, some of the 
storms this afternoon/early evening could contain heavy rainfall, 
gusty winds, and frequent lightning.  Showers/storms should diminish 
around or shortly after sunset.  

A few showers may linger overnight tonight.  Locations that don't 
see showers, may experience some patchy fog given light winds and a 
stagnant, very moist airmass.  

Temperatures today will cool back into the low to mid 80s.  Lows 
tonight should range through the upper 60s to around 70.

.Long Term...(Sunday through Friday)
Issued at 246 AM EDT Sat May 26 2018

Warm and humid conditions with rounds of showers and storms is the 
theme for the long term forecast. For the beginning of next week and 
the end of the holiday weekend, we will see scattered afternoon 
showers and storms. The best chance for storms will be across south 
central KY. While Memorial Day was looking a bit drier due to 
subsidence ahead of the tropical system, the latest models do show 
some convergence across south central KY in the low level wind 
fields. This would lead to a bit better coverage of storms during 
the afternoon. 

After Monday, much of the focus for the midweek forecast will be on 
the track of the remnants of Subtropical Storm Alberto. The center 
line of the current 5 day cone of uncertainty from the National 
Hurricane Center has Alberto moving into south central KY as a 
tropical depression Wednesday evening. While this may not be the 
exact track, most models do have precipitation associated with this 
system affecting central KY and southern IN during the midweek 
timeframe. As Alberto then moves out, a shortwave moving through 
looks to bring another round of showers and storms for the end of 
the week. The main concern from all of this will be whether we will 
see any flooding towards the end of next week. This will bear 
watching as these storms develop and models get a good handle on the 
track of Alberto. 

Temperatures this week will remain above normal for this time of 
year with highs in the mid to upper 80s and lows in the mid 60s to 
around 70. With dewpoints in the upper 60s to around 70s it will 
feel quite like summertime.

&&

.Aviation...(12Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 650 AM EDT Sat May 26 2018

Mainly VFR conditions are expected for this TAF period.  The biggest 
TAF concern will be timing of showers/storms today.  Isolated 
showers are expected this morning.  So far overnight model guidance 
has been too aggressive with convection so backed the TAFs down to 
VCSH through the morning hours.  The better chances for t-storms 
will come this afternoon. The latest model guidance indicates sct 
showers/storms across the region this afternoon mainly in the 17-0Z 
time frame. Some could result in MVFR conditions.  Winds will remain 
on the light side from the SSW through the TAF period.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
National Weather Service Jackson KY
355 AM EDT Sat May 26 2018

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Sunday)
Issued at 355 AM EDT SAT MAY 26 2018

The latest surface map features broad low pressure across south
central Canada with a strung out cold front aligned southward into
the Great Lakes, before becoming more stationary back across the
central Plains. Weak southwest flow is in place across the Ohio
and Tennessee valleys. Aloft, a broad trough is aligned along the
Mississippi Valley, with several embedded short waves/vorticity
maxima noted. 

The broad trough will draw closer to the region today, allowing 
for better areal convective coverage, with scattered to numerous 
activity expected during the day. Storms should have a bit more 
movement today compared to yesterday; however, with PWATs around 
the 1.7 inch range, locally heavy rainfall will be a concern with 
any persistent or training cells. More cloud cover and 
precipitation will likely keep highs down a few degrees cooler 
compared to yesterday, with most locations seeing mid 80s. 

The convection will wane with the loss of heating tonight, with
areas of fog likely forming, despite thicker mid and high level
clouds. Lows will be in the mid 60s. The trough will gradually
dampen and slide to our east on Sunday. Mainly scattered
convection is expected with the better chances occurring across 
far southeastern Kentucky. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s. 

.LONG TERM...(Sunday night through Friday)
Issued at 355 AM EDT SAT MAY 26 2018

The extended will be quite active with daily chances of showers and 
storms and warmer than normal temperatures. Troughs of low pressure 
aloft will bring scattered showers and storms to eastern Kentucky 
Monday and Tuesday. The best chances for thunderstorms on both of 
those days will be during the afternoon and early evening hours. The 
rest of the week gets a bit tricky, as the remnants of subtropical 
storm Alberto may be impacting our weather from Wednesday onward. As 
of now, several different forecast models have Alberto having some 
impact on our weather, its just a matter of exactly when Alberto 
will move through the area and how long and how much it will rain as 
a result. For now decided to got with a slightly modified version of 
the blended model data, mainly to match up with neighboring offices, 
due to the amount of uncertainty still in play. Will need to 
continue monitoring the status of Albert and how the models are 
handling him as the middle of next week approaches. At this time the 
best chances of rain are expected from Wednesday through Friday as 
Alberto moves through. Temperatures will continue to run above 
normal during the period, with daily highs in the 80s and nightly 
lows in the 60s.

&&

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Saturday night)
ISSUED AT 215 AM EDT SAT MAY 26 2018

IFR or worse fog is expected to set in across the deeper valleys 
of eastern Kentucky through 12z, as well as locations that saw 
more significant rainfall Friday afternoon and evening. This will
mainly steer clear of the TAF sites, with SJS the only site 
likely to see some MVFR conditions at some point through 12z. The 
convective coverage will be greater on Saturday, and will continue
to indicate showers with thunderstorms in the vicinity from 16z- 
00z for most locations. Winds will average around 5 kts or less 
outside of any thunderstorms.

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Monday night)
Issued at 301 AM CDT Sat May 26 2018

A weak mid/upper-level trough will linger over the forecast area
through the holiday weekend, as subtropical storm Alberto moves 
north through the Gulf of Mexico and sets its sites on the 
northern Gulf Coast. The main focus for mainly diurnal scattered 
thunderstorms will lie east of this trof axis, generally over 
western KY and sw IN, with only slight chances farther north and 
west. Weak flow through the mid/upper levels of the atmosphere 
will continue, so a primary concern will continue to be with 
localized torrential rainfall and flooding as PWATS (around 1.8")
continue up close to the 99th percentile for this time of year. 
Of course, deadly lightning will also be a primary concern, and a 
few isolated downbursts of gusty winds will also be possible.

It will remain hot and humid outside of thunderstorm outflows 
through the short term. Afternoon heat indices in the mid and
upper 90s will be commonplace Sunday afternoon. 

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Friday)
Issued at 301 AM CDT Sat May 26 2018

The recently named subtropical storm Alberto, will be the main focus 
for weather in our area early next week. By 12Z Tuesday, the 
remnants of Alberto will be heading north into Mississippi and 
Alabama. As this occurs, chances for rain will continue to spread 
north across the area with the highest chances across the 
southeastern counties (i.e. western KY area). By Tuesday night, the 
system will start lifting northeast across our region. Best chances 
Tuesday evening will again be across western KY. Overnight, the axis 
of highest POPs will shift to areas east of the Mississippi, namely 
southern IL (along and east of I-57), west KY and southwest IN. 
However, the ECMWF and GFS ensemble mean suggests the higher QPF in 
the opposite direction due to the farther south and west upper low 
placement. Consensus though over the past few days has been the 
former solution versus the latter, so will hedge higher POPs in the 
east for overnight Tuesday. 

On Wednesday, with the upper system departing, the best chances of 
rain will continue to be in our eastern counties so will continue 
with likely POPs in our far eastern sections. Locally heavy
rainfall will be likely too (with PWATS up close to 1.75"). Again,
the slower ECMWF and GFS ensemble mean suggest that higher QPF 
may extend further west as well. Will continue with low end chance
POPs for now for areas further west.

Beyond that, the weather is a bit unsettled as the upper flow 
becomes kind of zonal. The 00Z GFS seems a bit overdone, as per 
usual but the Canadian and to some extent the ECWMF, indicate at 
least a small chance for more convection on Thursday. The upper flow 
becomes more northwesterly toward the end of the week and there 
could be yet another ripple in the flow to help initiate more 
precipitation. Keeping POPs low for now though.

Temperatures will be tempered a bit on Tuesday and Wednesday with 
the clouds and precipitation. However, we will warm up quickly 
toward the end of the week with highs in the lower 90s expected by 
Friday.

&&

.AVIATION...
Issued at 1155 PM CDT Fri May 25 2018

Main concern overnight is fog potential, especially where heavy rain 
occurred on Friday. This primarily is in southern Illinois and far west 
Kentucky. The fog could become rather dense if skies cleared out 
totally, but mid level clouds are still forecast to be persistent. The 
06z tafs will introduce some ifr vsbys into the kpah taf around 
sunrise. VFR conditions are still expected where little or no rain 
occurred, including the kevv/kowb tafs. 

On Saturday, quite a bit of sun in the morning will give way to lots of 
cumulus clouds and more scattered storms in the afternoon. Any storms 
will again have the potential for heavy rain. The evening hours should 
again become quiet, with vfr at all sites.
