Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Jackson KY
510 AM EDT Thu Jul 7 2022

08Z sfc analysis shows a wavy frontal boundary just to the north
of the JKL CWA placing the area firmly in the warm sector of a
larger weather pattern. This has made for another warm and muggy 
night with a few nocturnal storms ongoing just south of the
Tennessee border. The thicker clouds over the area last evening 
have thinned and cleared to the point that abundant sfc moisture 
in place has manifested in areas of fog with a few dense patches
noted - primarily on the ridgetops. Otherwise, temperatures (and 
dewpoints) are fairly uniform across the area in the upper 60s and
lower 70s, amid light winds. 

The models are in good agreement aloft through the short term 
portion of the forecast. They all depict the persistent mid level
ridge holding on for one more day before yielding to increasing
shortwave troughing to the north and shifting its core westward.
Even today, this ridge is insufficiently strong to keep energy
from dropping through northeast parts of the CWA likely helping to
spawn renewed convection through the area later today. 5h heights
then further decline aloft on Friday when a fairly strong impulse 
moves into the Ohio Valley - brushing by to the northeast during
that afternoon. Given the small model spread through the short
term did not deviate far from the blended NBM solution aside from
incorporating some mesoscale specifics from the CAMs consensus 
into the evening part of the forecast. 

Sensible weather will feature our warm, humid, and often stormy
period of weather continuing through the end of the work week.
Strong, and potentially severe, storms will probably develop later
this afternoon mainly over the Cumberland Valley. The storms will
be fueled by high levels of CAPE over the area and ample moisture.
Additionally, the DCAPE will be near 1000 j/kg over eastern
Kentucky this afternoon prompting a potential for damaging wind 
gusts while very high PW air supports the threat of excessive 
rainfall - especially where any cell training sets up. The 
instability will fade into the evening and with it the threat for 
severe weather by thunderstorm chances, diminished, remain. Strong
storm then likely return on Friday with a continued threat for 
heavy rainfall and slightly better upper level support. 

Temperatures will be quite warm again today and Friday with high 
humidities pushing heat indices toward 100 degrees, though the 
convection expectations make this far from a certainty for many 
places. Again tonight we can anticipate muggy and warm conditions 
with areas of fog developing and favoring the spots that see the 
best rain today. An SPS has been issued for the potential of high 
heat indices across the area this afternoon, as well. 

The main adjustments to the NBM starting point were to incorporate 
some enhanced details into the PoPs from the CAMs consensus into 
the evening - favoring the Cumberland Valley with the highest
values.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Louisville KY
743 PM EDT Fri Jun 2 2023

...Updated Aviation Discussion...

.Short Term...(This evening through Saturday)
Issued at 240 PM EDT Fri Jun 2 2023

Strong sfc high pressure remains centered over Hudson Bay as an 
upper level high is over south central Canada and the Upper Midwest 
of the US. Deep northeasterly flow continues to advect in dry air 
over the Ohio Valley. While temperatures during the early afternoon 
were already in the mid/upper 80s dew points across southern IN, the 
Bluegrass and around Louisville were in the low/mid 50s with some 
locations had dew points in the 40s. While the rest of central and 
southern KY still reported dew points in the upper 50s/low 60s. 
Drier air will continue to advect in over the region through the 
afternoon, evening and overnight. Skies will remain clear with winds 
becoming light to nearly calm. With the dry air in place lows will 
in the low 60s with a few locations dipping into the upper 50s. 

High pressure will continue its influence over the region as we 
start the weekend. With lots of sunshine, a dry ground and continued 
dry air in place (dew points in the low/mid 50s) temperatures will 
once again warm to near or even into the low 90s for the afternoon. 
While the forecast for tomorrow looks overwhelming dry, there will 
be an inverted sfc trough moving across eastern KY in the 
afternoon/evening. This may be enough to fire off an isolated 
shower/storm across the far eastern portion of our CWA, mainly east 
of the I-75 corridor.

&&

.Long Term...(Saturday night through Friday)
Issued at 300 PM EDT Fri June 2 2023

------------------------------------------------------------------
Key Messages:

- Above normal temperatures through Monday

- Cold front Tuesday which slightly increases rain chances 

- Dry conditions continue
------------------------------------------------------------------

Saturday night - Sunday...

As the upper ridge continues to move off to the west, the trough to 
the northeast continues to build and move southwesterly. On Saturday 
night, a shortwave trough will move over the region from the east. 
With temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s on Sunday afternoon, 
marginal low-level moisture, and sufficient forcing, we could see 
some isolated-scattered showers/storms mainly centered over southern 
Kentucky.

Monday - Wednesday morning...

The impressive upper level trough will continue to move towards the 
region from the northeast and bring a trough into the Ohio River 
Valley on Monday. Weak low-level moisture and troughing will 
increase the shower/storm chances to 20-30% on Tuesday. The cold 
front will pass through the region on Tuesday bringing cooler and 
drier air behind it. For the rest of the week, high temperatures 
will be in the upper 70s and low 80s, low temperatures in the low-
mid 50s, and no mentionable precipitation chances.

Drought and Rain Chances This Week...

Most areas east of I-65 are currently under D0 (abnormally dry) 
drought conditions. With rain chances low in most regions throughout 
this next week, drought conditions are likely to continue or worsen 
this week.

&&

.Aviation...(00Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 741 PM EDT Fri Jun 2 2023

VFR conditions are expected through this forecast cycle as high 
pressure controls the region. Look for clear and calm winds 
overnight (perhaps a very light NE wind at times). Otherwise, the 
steady NE surface winds take back hold on Saturday, with a few gusts 
up around 15 to 20 mph possible. In addition, a few more upper level 
clouds will be noted by afternoon.

735 PM EDT Fri Jun 2 2023

.UPDATE...
Issued at 735 PM EDT FRI JUN 2 2023

The forecast remains on track. Primarily updated hourly grids
based on the latest T/Td/Wind obs, while keeping overnight lows as
is for now. Will monitor how things trend through this evening and
decide in a later update if any tweeks need to be made further. 
Updated grids have been sent to NDFD and Webfarms.

&&

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Saturday night)
Issued at 515 PM EDT FRI JUN 2 2023

The latest upper level map features a seasonably strong ridge
centered over the Great Lakes, with troughing towards the Eastern
Seaboard, as well as west of the Rockies. At the surface, strong
high pressure is centered across northern Quebec, with a quasi-
stationary frontal boundary aligned from east to west closer to
the U.S. border. More modest high pressure is spread south of this
boundary across most locations east of the Mississippi River.
Drier air advecting in on northeast winds brought dew points down
into the upper 40s for some spots this afternoon across eastern
Kentucky. Temperatures have peaked in the mid to upper 80s, under
mainly sunny skies. 

The models remain in good agreement aloft through the short term,
with the Great Lakes ridge to strengthen further as it migrates
a more atypical westerly direction, centering near the south
central Canadian and north central U.S. border by the end of the
period. Meanwhile, a deepening low will move south across 
northern New England, allowing for some modest 500 mb height 
falls across the Ohio and Tennessee valleys on Saturday. This will
result in a small threat of a few showers and storms across
portions of the our area Saturday afternoon/early evening, mainly
along and east of Highway 23. 

Mostly clear skies and drier dew points will allow for some low to
mid 50s in our northern and northeastern valleys, with a little
less fog compared to early this morning. Temperatures will rebound
into the 85 to 90 degree range on Saturday. Generally stayed a 
shade cooler then the blended guidance, as it has been coming in a
bit warm compared to reality lately, mostly led by the ECMWF.
Mainly isolated convection will threaten across our northeast by
late afternoon and early evening, as some vorticity advects in
from the Ohio Valley. Convection will die off with the loss of
heating early Saturday evening, with low temperatures a few
degrees milder compared to tonight, as well as an uptick in valley
fog. 

.LONG TERM...(Sunday through Friday)
Issued at 354 PM EDT FRI JUN 2 2023

Nothing too exciting during the extended, thankfully. Just some 
afternoon chances of showers and maybe a rumble of thunder from 
Sunday through Tuesday.

A large upper level ridge will be in place across the Midwest and 
down into the Ohio Valley to start the period, with a high max just 
north of Minnesota. Most of Kentucky should remain under the 
influence of this strong subsidence. Meanwhile, a deep upper level 
low will be rotating just off the New England coast, staying fairly 
stationary. This will lead to some lower heights in the far east 
part of the state, basically across the JKL forecast area. 
Eventually another upper level low pressure center will shift 
counterclockwise around the first one by Monday, and they will merge 
together into one stronger system across New England on Tuesday. As 
this takes place, the upper level ridge will be pushed farther 
westward, and heights will begin to lower across the entire 
Commonwealth. There is quite a bit of disagreement as to how this 
upper level low will play out through the remainder of the period 
from Wednesday through Friday, but one thing is for sure, we will 
see lower heights and, more importantly, nearly north to south 
isobars across the state, advecting cooler air into the region for 
the second half of the week. 

As far as sensible weather, a weak boundary will set up across 
eastern KY during the day Sunday, differentiating between the high 
pressure airmass to our northwest and the low pressure to our 
northeast. While models are already a bit messy and not in good 
agreement even by Sunday afternoon, there is at least some consensus 
that some afternoon pop up convection could occur across the CWA. As 
such, kept with the NBM chance pops for the day. For Monday and 
Tuesday, flow will be somewhat more northerly with the increasing 
north to south flow across the region. However, with no clear high 
pressure system overhead, and lowering heights, can't rule out some 
afternoon destabilization and a generally isolated pop up shower or 
thunderstorm across the CWA. Also on Tuesday, enough CAA will set up 
across the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley that a weak cold front should 
develop across the state and drop southward during the day. After 
the passage of this front, high pressure will finally begin to take 
hold of the region, along with increased northerly flow for 
Wednesday. The combination of these two should keep temperatures 
below or near normal for mid-week, and also will keep skies dry 
through the rest of the week. 

Temperatures will start out in the 80s for Sunday and Monday. By 
Tuesday as the colder air begins to advect in, temps will top out in 
the low 80s. Then by Wednesday, highs will back down to the mid 
70s. Temperatures will moderate a couple degrees each day through 
the second half of the week with the continued sunshine, despite 
continued strong northerly flow aloft, with Friday seeing the low 
80s once more. However, it should be noted that the models are in 
very bad agreement the last few days of the forecast, so these 
temperatures and even the precip chances are subject to change as 
we get closer to onset and models hopefully come into better 
agreement. 

&&

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening)
ISSUED AT 735 PM EDT FRI JUN 2 2023

VFR conditions will prevail through the period, with mostly clear
skies tonight into Saturday morning. Some fog will likely develop
between 06 and 12z, but this should remain more confined to the 
deeper river valleys late tonight, given a day of drying and the 
low level dry air that is in place. A few showers or storms will 
be possible for far Eastern Kentucky into Saturday afternoon, but 
confidence was not high enough in timing/coverage to include a 
mention at SJS at this time. Winds will be light and variable 
through dawn, picking up out of the northeast into the afternoon, 
but generally staying less than 10 kts.

.SHORT TERM...(Tonight through Sunday night)
Issued at 224 PM CDT Fri Jun 2 2023

This afternoon and Tonight...Isolated to scattered convection has
blossomed across southeast Missouri this afternoon on the nose of
a pseudo dryline feature that is pushing southwest through the
region. There is little relief from the heat behind this feature,
as temperatures in most locations have still reached the upper 80s
to lower 90s. Tonight, convection will diminish as diurnal heating
wanes and the dryline feature clears the area. Low temperatures 
will fall into the lower to middle 60s under mostly clear skies 
and light winds. 

Saturday and Saturday night...The hottest temperatures of the
season so far are forecast across the area for Saturday. Still
expecting 850 mb temperatures to climb near 20C in the afternoon.
With very low humidity expected (dew points will mix down into the
lower 50s in the afternoon), high temperatures in the lower to
middle 90s are forecast, which will be approaching record values
at our climate sites. Saturday night temperatures will cool into
the middle to upper 60s under mostly clear skies. 

Sunday and Sunday night...Model guidance has trended towards the
region coming more under the influence of a troughing feature
located across the northeast CONUS. This will allow another
backdoor cold front/moisture gradient to push through the region
Sunday afternoon. This will not bring much relief from the heat,
but will provide forcing to initiate some widely scattered
thunderstorms during the heat of the day Sunday. Coverage will be
quite low, and organized convection is not expected. High
temperatures will again reach the lower 90s in the majority of
locations. Sunday night will again be warm and quiet, with
overnight low temperatures falling into the middle and upper 60s. 

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Friday)
Issued at 224 PM CDT Fri Jun 2 2023

For the long term portion of the forecast, model guidance has
trended towards the GFS solution from a few days ago showing more
troughing from the northeast CONUS retrograding into the forecast
area. The overall omega block will still develop, but the main
ridge axis looks to shift west of the region by the early to
middle part of next week. 

In terms of sensible weather, this means that our weekend heat
wave will only last through Monday or Tuesday of next week before
a significant cool down arrives for the latter half of next week.
As small disturbances ripple through the mid-level flow in the 
troughing regime, low PoP chances will return to the forecast 
during the heat of the day Monday and Tuesday. High temperatures 
on both days will reach the upper 80s to lower 90s, with overnight
low temperatures will remain in the lower to middle 60s. As the 
troughing becomes more pronounced, H5 thicknesses will drop, and 
high temperatures for the Wednesday through Friday period will 
cool into the lower to middle 80s, with low temperatures dipping 
into the 50s and 60s. Despite the cool down, there is still no 
sign of widespread significant rainfall that would aide in 
alleviating the worsening drought conditions across the region. 

&&

.AVIATION...
Issued at 612 PM CDT Fri Jun 2 2023

The TAFs are VFR. Northeast winds will become light with sunset
and then pick up to 8-10kt by midday Saturday. A few gusts to
around 15kts will be possible in the afternoon. The influx of dry
air and a periodic light breeze should prevent any significant 
fog development overnight.

Severe weather on the table

It has been a rather active weather pattern to start December. Through the 8th, the state has averaged 1.39 inches. Attention now turns to another round of showers and storms tomorrow and Saturday. Altogether, another half to 1.5 inches will be on the table. Coverage will start tomorrow scattered in nature. Highs will jump into the 60s across much of the area behind breezy southerly winds. Shower/storm coverage and intensity then increases tomorrow night and into Saturday morning. A line of storms is expected with damaging winds as the main threat, but tornadoes also very much possible. Heavy rain also presents a flooding threat, especially for low lying areas. Now is the time to get animals out of those spots. Bottom line, this will present an overnight threat, so please have a way to get warning (highly suggest a NOAA Weather Radio).

After a brief cool down for the latter half of the weekend, temperatures go on the uphill climb next week. Outlooks hint the warm air will hang around the area through the third full week of December. Any additional rain chances look to hold off until late workweek.
