.Forecast Update...
Issued at 1013 PM EST Sat Feb 25 2017

Clouds continue to stream into the region tonight ahead of an 
approaching weather system.  While returns are showing up on radar, 
we have large dewpoint depressions so, it will be a while before the 
rain starts making it to the surface.  Rain showers will increase to 
the west and move into areas west of I-65 by dawn and then spread 
across the region on Monday.  Current forecast has this well 
covered.  Only updates this evening where to re-populate the grids 
with the latest observational data and then adjust the overnight 
grids close to Consensus Short guidance.

&&

.Short Term...(This evening through Monday night)
Issued at 248 PM EST Sun Feb 26 2017

With clear skies today and a return to southerly flow, temperatures 
have rebounded from lows in the teens and 20s this morning into the 
mid 40s to low 50s. Clouds cover will be on the increase this 
afternoon and evening, however, as a shortwave moving through the 
upper level flow approaches. Rain will move in from the 
southwest, mainly after midnight as this disturbance nears. The 
rain will spread across the area through the morning and lift off to 
the north in the afternoon. Much of the area does look to dry out 
during the afternoon hours tomorrow.

For Monday night, a warm front will lift north across the region. 
This will bring another chance for showers, again mainly after 
midnight. Rainfall amounts tonight through tomorrow night look to be 
up to a few tenths of an inch or so.

Temperatures tonight will be much milder than last night, dipping 
into the upper 30s to around 40. Highs tomorrow should top out in 
the mid to upper 50s. With the warm front moving north across the 
area tomorrow night, it should be fairly mild, dropping into the mid 
40s to around 50.

.Long Term...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 300 AM EST Sun Feb 26 2017

...Strong to Severe storms possible Tuesday evening through 
Wednesday...

The long term period will begin with a quite active and complicated 
setup. Rounds of showers and storms will move through the area with 
the potential for severe weather. Differences in timing of a cold 
frontal passage and strength of multiple shortwaves and surface low 
features complicate the forecast.

Starting off on Tuesday, scattered showers will likely be ongoing 
from the overnight warm front passage. Development of instability 
during the day could lead to some thunderstorms, though coverage 
would likely be scattered, especially during the afternoon hours. 

For Tuesday night into Wednesday, one of the main questions will be 
the timing of the cold front moving through. The GFS and Canadian 
are on the faster side of the guidance bringing it through Wednesday 
morning while the NAM/ECMWF/SREF would favor mid day to the 
afternoon. The slower solution would result in the development of 
more instability during the day on Wednesday and could lead to 
stronger storms along the front. The other question is the 
development of storms overnight Tuesday as these slower models do 
show a round of storms developing across the region well out ahead 
of the front resulting in two rounds of storms. Regardless of which 
solution pans out, models continue to depict 500-1500 J/kg CAPE 
along with 40-50 knots of effective shear. Strong to severe storms 
are certainly possible and expect we should get a better handle on 
timing over the next few model runs. 

Behind the front, much quieter weather is expected into the weekend. 
A clipper system on Thursday night could bring a rain/snow mix to 
portions of southern IN and the Bluegrass region of KY, but it 
should move through quickly and have little impact. Temperatures 
will cool down for the end of the week, but begin to rise again this 
weekend as high pressure scoots east of the area and southerly flow 
returns.

&&

.Aviation...(06Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 1157 PM EST Sun Feb 26 2017

Clouds will continue to thicken overnight as a mid-level weather 
system pushes in from the west/southwest.  Clouds will start to 
lower during the overnight period and some light rain showers will 
be possible before dawn down in the KBWG region and perhaps the KSDF 
area.  We still have rather large dewpoint depressions across the 
region, so it will take some time for the column to moisten up. 
Shower activity over at KLEX will likely not materialize until after 
27/12Z.  A period of MVFR cigs will be possible between 27/12-18Z at 
the terminals, but ceilings look to improve to VFR conditions during 
the early afternoon.  Winds will be generally light and out of the 
southeast overnight, shifting to the southwest on Monday.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED
National Weather Service Jackson KY
1110 PM EST Sun Feb 26 2017

.UPDATE...
Issued at 1110 PM EST SUN FEB 26 2017

The ridge to valley temperature split continues through eastern
Kentucky late this evening. Do expect it to start mixing out over
the next few hours as thicker clouds move in from the west.
Sprinkles or light showers are still on track to arrive toward
dawn in our west. In fact, even some virga returns are starting 
to show up on radar from cloud decks up around 9k feet AGL. The
dry air at the sfc will keep the pcpn from reaching the ground for
a while longer this night. Have updated the grids mainly to fine
tune the Sky/Td/T ones per the latest obs and trends. These have
been sent to the NDFD and web servers. 

UPDATE Issued at 740 PM EST SUN FEB 26 2017

00z sfc analysis shows high pressure over eastern Kentucky, but
retreating quickly. This led to mostly clear skies today and into
the first part of the evening, but high clouds are on the uptick
from the west. The high was also responsible for very dry air in
place with some locals seeing humidity values near 20 percent
earlier in the afternoon. Now the temperatures are dropping and
allowing the humidity to slowly increase while dewpoints remain
rather low in the the teens for most places - though lower 20s 
are found near Tennessee. Also, for fire weather concerns, the 
winds were rather light and variable - continuing that way into 
the night. Temperatures currently vary from the mid 40s on the 
ridges to the mid 30s in the valleys. Expect that split to remain 
through the evening before the clouds thicken up with a mix out 
late tonight allowing the valleys to warm up towards dawn. 
Additionally, the thickening clouds will build in from the west 
with even some sprinkles or light rain showers developing in the 
west and spreading east through the late night hours potentially 
affecting our western most counties by dawn. Have updated the 
grids to reflect this and also to match up the current obs and 
trends. These grids have been sent to the NDFD and web servers 
along with a freshened set of zones. 

&&

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Monday night)
Issued at 300 PM EST SUN FEB 26 2017

A ridge of high pressure will keep eastern Kentucky dry through 
late this evening, before an approaching area of low pressure 
brings some rain back to the area late tonight. In the meantime, 
we can expect middle and high level cloud cover to stream across 
the area, bringing partly to mostly cloudy skies to eastern 
Kentucky for the next several hours. The cloud bases should 
finally begin to lower a bit towards dawn on Monday, ahead of the 
approaching weather system. A lack of moisture return should allow
for no more than isolated to scattered showers tonight into early
tomorrow. A few snow showers may mix with the rain late tonight 
in our far northern and northeastern counties, where some cold air
will still be in place, but these should not cause any issues. 
Tonights lows will likely range from around 30 in our deep eastern
valleys, to the low to mid 30s elsewhere. The colder locations in
our north and east is where a few snow showers may form late 
tonight. The rain should begin to steadily increase in coverage 
tomorrow night, as the aforementioned weather system finally 
begins to move into the area from the southwest. A weak trough of 
low pressure passing to our west tonight will be what brings the 
initial push of precipitation to the area late tonight through 
tomorrow morning.

Temperatures should rebound a bit on Monday, as winds shift more
to the south and southwest and increase in intensity a bit
compared to today. This will also begin a period of moisture
advection off the Gulf of Mexico into the Tennessee and Ohio
valley regions. Highs on Monday should max out in the mid to upper
50s across the area. The warm air will remain in place Monday
night, as lows in the 40s are expected. 

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 349 PM EST SUN FEB 26 2017

Increasing southwest flow will continue Tuesday, lifting a warm
front through the Ohio Valley as a surface low ejects out of the 
central Plains into the Midwest. This along with developing 
isentropic ascent will lead to rain showers during the morning 
into at least early-mid afternoon. Portions of southeast Kentucky 
may very well remain dry as winds initially maintain a downslope 
component. Temperatures warming into the upper 60s to near 70 in 
the warm sector will allow for at least meager enough instability
to spark isolated chances of thunder through the late morning and
afternoon.

After a relatively drier period late Tuesday afternoon into a
portion of Tuesday night, rain chances will increase in earnest as
height falls overspread eastern Kentucky downstream of an upper
trough stretching from the western shores of Hudson Bay through
the Great Plains. Concurrently, evolution of a double-barrel
surface low pattern may occur as the base of the trough moves
across the front range of the Rockies. Still some question as to
how quickly increasing thunder chances will materialize Tuesday 
night as stout earlier day warm air advection creates a strong 
elevated mixed layer, thus keeping any convection elevated.

Despite recent rainfall and plenty of cloud cover, surface heating
Wednesday morning/early afternoon should lead to ample enough
instability for surface-based thunderstorm development across all
of eastern Kentucky as a cold front bears down on the
Commonwealth. Impressive shear profiles, characterized by 0-6 km
values of 60-70 knots with 50 knots within a few thousand feet off
the deck, will promote damaging wind gusts as a line of storms
pushes through. Peak shower/thunderstorm activity currently looks
to take place Wednesday afternoon, further promoting strong/severe
wind potential, given enough instability can develop in order for
updrafts to survive in a highly sheared environment.

After a few storms likely linger into the evening timeframe,
cold/dry air advection will blast into eastern Kentucky Wednesday
night. Lingering rain/snow showers will be possible into early
Thursday as below normal temperatures return through late week. A
clipper system may bring some light rain/snow showers turning to
all snow showers Thursday evening/night. Having a tough time in
believing enough moisture advection will occur to see anything
measurable following the strength of the recent front, but the 
best chances will be across northeast Kentucky.

Quasi-zonal flow/weak ridging then looks to take shape for the
weekend with warmer/drier conditions ensuing. Precipitation 
chances may then again ramp up heading into the following week as 
cyclonic flow redevelops out west.

&&

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Monday evening)
ISSUED AT 720 PM EST SUN FEB 26 2017

The center of a ridge of surface high pressure overhead and
starting to move off to the northeast. High clouds are expected 
to move into the area and increase through 06z as an upper level 
disturbance passes with VFR conditions continuing. From these mid
level clouds some sprinkles and a few stray showers will be
possible across the far west and northwest late tonight into early
Monday. This passes by early afternoon Monday with the pcpn 
clearing up but mid level clouds will likely remain. Winds will 
be relatively light through the period.

.SHORT TERM...(Tonight through Tuesday night)
Issued at 1257 PM CST Sun Feb 26 2017

Clouds will continue to thicken up from the west through the
evening, with light precip developing, moving across the area
overnight, as a s/wv approaches. Mainly light rains. Very dry 
airmass below 800mb to start. Diabatic processes may result in a 
brief period of light sleet or a snow flurry. Just not worth the 
mention at this point given low confidence of occurrence and nil 
impact. Light rains will end Monday morning as the s/wv shears out
and moves east. 

Showers should develop Monday night due to a northeast moving warm
front, and weak support aloft. Could be some thunder after
midnight given elevated instability forecast. NVA region moves
across the area Tuesday. So expect a lull in the activity even
into the early to mid afternoon, with otherwise breezy and warmer
weather. 

Tuesday evening and overnight, thunderstorm chances increase.
SPC in their day 3 outlook pretty much explains the severe
potential quite well, and we agree with it. Some indicators are
quite concerning in fact, but question marks still exist. Coverage
in the early evening may be scattered, given only modest mid 
level support and a lack of surface focus. Overnight, coverage and
chances should ramp up as large scale ascent increases ahead of 
an approaching mid level trof from the plains, and surface cold 
front that will move into the area by Wednesday morning.

As far as temperatures, generally a MOS average. Model agreement
is decent. Used a blend there too. Smoothed out some of the NAM
tendencies.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday through Sunday)
Issued at 1257 PM CST Sun Feb 26 2017

Confidence continues to increase with the extended.

The cold front moves through early Wednesday morning with high 
pressure coming in its wake. Put a chance of thunder in early 
Wednesday morning but model trends and FB are lowering pops across 
the board Wednesday. I believe this  trend will continue to the 
case. would not be surprised if later runs takes any chance of rain 
well east of the Mississippi River by Wednesday afternoon at the 
latest. Otherwise high pressure will build into the region bringing 
cooler and drier air on northwest winds. It will likely be gusty 
winds in the fronts wake on Wednesday but will soon overnight. As 
the high shifts to our east the winds will swing back around to a 
more southerly component. We will likely see a freeze Thursday night 
as typical the coldest temps behind the front often occur the second 
night after its passage. A warm up will begin in earnest this 
weekend...once again bringing temps above normal.

&&

.AVIATION...
Issued at 1128 PM CST Sun Feb 26 2017

Low to mid clouds will continue to increase tonight. Rain chances
will continue overnight, ending by Monday morning. The airmass is
very dry so it is taking a while to saturate down in some places.
Cigs will eventually lower to MVFR, but the main question is when
and for how long. May see some breaks by afternoon but will play 
it pessimistic with maintaining a mvfr cig for now. Winds will be 
light overnight and pick up Monday morning from the SE.
