Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Louisville KY
1057 AM EDT Sun Mar 26 2017

.Forecast Update...
Issued at 1055 AM EDT Sun Mar 26 2017

The morning showers are persisting across our eastern CWA, but will 
continue to lift out of the area over the next couple of hours. Back 
to the west, we are seeing a lull in activity as mid level dry punch 
is working in. This does not mean the end of the showers, however as 
low to mid level lapse rates will remain steep ahead of the next 
vort max rotating around the parent upper low near the Quad Cities. 

Latest mesoanalysis does show a small amount of instability 
developing back to the west where precipitation has ended, and data 
continues to suggest that up to 500 J/KG of CAPE will develop by 
midday into the afternoon. Model guidance depicts the development of 
scatted to numerous showers and a few storms by early to mid 
afternoon, especially across southern IN. Given the steep low and 
mid level lapse rates, there should be enough instability for some 
thunderstorms and the potential for gusty winds (~30-40 mph) to 
accompany them. In addition, a small hail threat isn't out of the 
question given low freezing levels around 8 K feet, although storm 
tops will likely be capped at around 15K feet given strong mid level 
subsidence. Also think it is worth mentioning that the vertical wind 
profile below the equilibrium level would be supportive of a few 
organized updrafts, if instability ends up being sufficient. In this 
case, a few stronger organized storms are possible where higher wind 
gusts (likely in the SPS range) might be possible. Will have to 
monitor early afternoon trends.

&&

.Short Term...(This afternoon through Monday evening)
Issued at 300 AM EDT Sun Mar 26 2017

...Strong to Severe Storms Possible Monday...

Stacked low pressure was centered over northeast Missouri early this 
morning, with a long band of showers stretching from the Gulf Coast 
to the Ohio Valley. The showers are located just ahead of the 
negatively-tilted trough, which will continue to swing into the 
region this morning. Closest lightning activity was in western TN, 
near the surface boundary and under more of an influence from cold 
pool aloft. Lightning does not look likely early this morning with 
minimal instability and moist-adiabatic lapse rates. Ongoing steady 
band of light to moderate showers will gradually lift northeast of 
the forecast area by 12z.

After sunrise, activity looks to be more scattered in nature with 
some potential for isolated thunder. Instability is still quite 
marginal, but can't rule out lightning completely as temps aloft 
cool. Without widespread showers during the daytime, highs in most 
places should recover into the upper 60s to around 70 degrees. A 
brief period of dry weather is expected late this evening into early 
Monday. Very brief shortwave ridging will push through the Ohio 
Valley ahead of a low pressure system in the Plains. Lows tonight 
will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s. 

A progressive shortwave trough swings into the Ohio Valley on 
Monday. There is medium-high forecast confidence in a surface low 
moving from NW Arkansas at 12z Mon to Indiana by late Monday 
evening. A 35 kt SW LLJ noses through the forecast area during the 
afternoon and evening hours. Latest forecast soundings suggest 
moderate buoyancy will develop with a capping inversion in place 
through 18z or so. Dewpoints are forecast to rise into the mid and 
upper 50s. 0-6 km shear looks to be around 35-40 kts. There is also 
a fair amount of shear (25 kts) in the lowest 1 km, and effective 
SRH peaks around 200 m2/s2 during the afternoon and evening. Strong 
to severe storms are possible with this environment, including 
damaging wind gusts, hail, heavy rain, and an isolated tornado.

&&

.Long Term...(After midnight Monday night through Saturday)
Issued at 340 PM EDT Sat Mar 25 2017

Showers could linger east of I-65 Tuesday morning as low pressure 
departs to the east. In general, upper level ridging will keep 
central KY and southern IN mostly dry Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs 
Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the mid 60s to low 70s. Morning 
lows are expected to be in the mid 40s to low 50s. 

The weather turns active once again late this week. Showers and 
thunderstorms appear most likely Thu, Thu night, and Friday as a 
deep upper level trough moves into the region. Forecast confidence 
regarding the detailed evolution of this low pressure system remains 
low. The latest ECMWF features an evolution that is most consistent 
with the recent pattern, with ridging across the NE US and a surface 
track to the north of the forecast area. However, the latest GFS 
suppresses the system further south, right through the Ohio Valley. 
For now, will feature likely rain chances, a slight chance for 
thunder, and highs generally in the 60s to around 70 degrees. 

The weekend looks pretty quiet with high pressure and drier air 
returning to the Ohio Valley. Blended guidance suggests highs in the 
60s, with Sunday warmer than Saturday.

.Aviation...(12Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 635 AM EDT Sun Mar 26 2017

Shield of widespread rain currently affecting SDF and LEX, with LEX 
so far remaining VFR while SDF is trying to break out of fuel-
alternate MVFR. A modest dry slot is trying to punch up through 
south central Kentucky, but BWG is still seeing intermittent 
showers. 

Will most likely initialize LEX with prevailing -SHRA but will keep 
VFR conditions. Worst case seems to be MVFR but above fuel-
alternate, given trends in the upstream observations. BWG and SDF 
will be issuance time decisions. 

By late morning the widespread rain should be to our north and east, 
but scattered showers will almost certainly warrant a couple hours 
of VCSH. Winds will be picking up out of the south, or perhaps SSW, 
with gusts just shy of 20 kt. As the afternoon progresses, expect 
precip chances to diminish below any mention-worthy probabilities, 
and ceilings to go solidly VFR.  

Winds should die down this evening, and after a brief mid-level 
ceiling expect enough clearing to consider some fog potential 
heading toward Monday morning. Will keep vis MVFR or better for now, 
with any ceilings staying VFR.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED
National Weather Service Jackson KY
1207 PM EDT Sun Mar 26 2017

.UPDATE...
Issued at 1207 PM EDT SUN MAR 26 2017

The forecast was in pretty good shape so far today, so no major
changes were made. Based on current trends of convection evolution
and model data, still feel like the best chance for thunder will
in the northern half of the forecast area, where the axis of best
instability is still expected to set up this afternoon. Hourly obs
were ingested into the forecast grids to establish new trends as
well. Any outdated wording was also removed from the zone forecast
text product. 

UPDATE Issued at 816 AM EDT SUN MAR 26 2017

The area of showers is moving northeast slightly faster than was
forecast, and adjustments have been made. However, there are no
significant forecast changes.

&&

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Monday)
Issued at 439 AM EDT SUN MAR 26 2017

A weakening stacked low pressure system is centered in the 
vicinity of Quincy, IL and Burlington, IA early this morning. The 
mid/upper level portion of the system has a trough axis extending
southeast to the Gulf of Mexico. As the trough moves northeast, 
it is interacting with a moist flow of air off the Gulf, resulting
in a large area of showers. The leading edge of showers is over 
the southwest part of the JKL forecast area early this morning, 
heading east northeast. The area of showers will make its way 
across the rest of the forecast area this morning, and the back 
edge will exit into WV around mid day. 

There is no change in surface air mass taking place with this
round of precip. However, there are colder temperatures aloft 
behind the leading band of precip. This has resulted in scattered 
showers and a few thunderstorms during the night over western KY 
and West TN. As the regime shifts eastward today, forecast 
soundings show instability developing to support showers and 
thunderstorms here. Uncertainty exists in the extent of coverage. 
While everyone should see rain out of the leading band of precip 
coming through early, that may not be the case in the afternoon. 
Whatever showers/storms do occur will be on the decline and 
moving out to the northeast with the upper level system tonight.

Another surface low pressure system and an associated wave aloft
will move northeast toward the Ohio valley on Monday. This will
bring with it another increase in showers and thunderstorms, aided
by diurnal destabilization. The peak in activity will likely come
on Monday evening, beyond the short term period.

.LONG TERM...(Monday night through Saturday)
Issued at 439 AM EDT SUN MAR 26 2017

One of a string of upper Level waves that is moving into the Four 
Corners region this morning based on the 00Z 500mb analysis will 
bring a decent shot of showers and thunderstorms for the beginning 
of the period Monday night. This wave will induce a surface low 
across the Central Plains by tonight and eject into the Ohio Valley 
Monday night. Models seem to be handling this well and feel more 
confident in this versus much of the rest of the long term portion 
of the forecast. Tuesday the system will continue to progress east 
and trim POPs through the day from west to east. Models are in 
decent agreement with the drying period from Tuesday night into 
Wednesday night. While there is some amplitude differences with the 
upper level ridge and height rises think there is enough to keep the 
region dry. This also coincides with the NAEFS relative min in PWATs.

Beyond this models become quite convoluted and begin to diverge in 
their respective solutions. The 00Z GFS wants to bring a more 
positively to neutral tilted closed low east out of the Plains by 
Thursday night and the 00Z ECMWF bring a more neutrally to slightly 
negatively tilted trough with more of a northern stream influence by 
the same time frame. This seems to be a phasing issue and these two 
solutions will have implications on the surface features as well. 
There also remains a reasonable amount of spread in the GFS ensemble 
mean in regards to the upper level feature and spread in the 
individual members with regards to low placement hints previous 
statement. Even given some uncertainty the fact that both solutions 
would bring a decent shot of showers and perhaps some thunderstorms 
went with likely POPs from west to east from Late Thursday into 
Friday evening. The blend wanted to go CAT POPs but felt like 
uncertainty would be too much for that bullish of POPs. This system 
pegged to move into the Mid Atlantic and therefore a period of 
drying will resume Saturday. Overall the period will be met with 
well above to above average temperatures.

&&

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday morning)
ISSUED AT 816 AM EDT SUN MAR 26 2017

Showers were occurring over all but the southwest part of the area
at the start of the period. The continuous rain will move
northeast out of the JKL forecast area by about mid day. However,
there will still be at least scattered showers in the area 
through the afternoon, and possibly some thunderstorms.

Conditions were mostly VFR this morning. This will remain the
case, but sub-VFR conditions may affect some locations, especially
where heavier showers or storms occur. The showers and 
thunderstorms will diminish tonight.

Winds will pick up from the south to southwest during the day,
with gusts around 20 kt.

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Tuesday night)
Issued at 313 AM CDT Sun Mar 26 2017

Average confidence in the short term due to minor model disagreement 
with two systems affecting the area.

At the time of this writing, a surface/upper low combo was located 
just to the north and west of our CWA and is forecast to move 
northeast today toward the Great Lakes region. A N-S cold front from 
the low was bisecting our CWA. Scattered showers were noted on radar 
generally along and east of the front.

In the wake of the frontal passage this morning, precipitation 
chances will slowly diminish from the southwest throughout the day. 
The boundary is forecast to become W-E and quasi-stationary along 
and/or near our southern CWA border by late this afternoon. 

CWA-wide dry conditions will not last for long however. 
Precipitation chances will begin to overspread the region late 
tonight from the west as the quasi-stationary frontal boundary lifts 
back to the north as a warm front in response to a system emerging 
from the southern plains moves toward the region. Precipitation 
chances max out Monday into Monday evening as the system crosses the 
region. The back edge of the precipitation associated with this 
system should be exiting our CWA late Monday night.

Beyond that, high pressure at the surface and weak ridging aloft 
should keep the region dry through the rest of the period.

Temperatures will generally be 8 to 12 degrees above normal through 
the period.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday through Saturday)
Issued at 313 AM CDT Sun Mar 26 2017

The ECMWF takes our next low pressure system across northern 
portions of the PAH forecast area Thursday night, while the GFS 
takes it farther south and the Canadian moves it well north of our 
region.  A few showers may sneak into our far west counties 
Wednesday morning, but models all spread significant precipitation 
across the PAH forecast area late Wednesday night into Thursday. 
Went with likely to categorical pops Thursday into Thursday night 
across the entire area.  With current low confidence in the track of 
the low, just how much thunder we will see is in question, but for 
now went with slight chances mainly during the day Thursday. 
Temperatures will be above normal through the end of the work week, 
especially overnight lows. 

Precipitation chances will taper off from west to east Friday into 
Friday night as the low moves well east of our area.  Models show 
surface high pressure building southward as an upper level ridge 
moves over the middle Mississippi River valley. This will give us 
dry and near seasonal conditions for Saturday. 

&&

.AVIATION...
Issued at 642 AM CDT Sun Mar 26 2017

With the passage of a frontal boundary today expect VFR/MVFR 
cigs/vsbys for the first 4-6 hours, then VFR. SHRA possible at 
KEVV/KOWB for the first 2-3 hours. Southerly winds generally AOB 5
knots will become gusty after 15Z, then diminish to AOB 5 knots 
around sunset.
