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.

...Updated Aviation Discussion...

.KEY MESSAGES...

* Temperatures well above normal through Thursday. 

* Widespread showers and soaking rain Thursday, thunder is possible.

* Mostly dry for the weekend.

* A few system to move through the region next week bringing some 
  rain and possibly storms.

&&

.SHORT TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
Issued at 300 PM EST Tue Feb 20 2024

Broad ridging will continue to dominate over the region tonight and 
Wednesday. Clear skies and light, southerly winds will continue 
through the overnight hours. Low temperatures are expected to cool 
into the low-mid 30s. Temperatures will warm into the mid 60s by 
Wednesday afternoon. Forecast soundings and this atmospheric set-up 
are conducive for dry air mixdown. Dew points have been lowered to 
bring RH into the 25-30% range for the afternoon. Winds will be 
stronger than today on the order of 10-12mph and gusting up to 
20mph as winds aloft mix down to the surface.

&&

.LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...
Issued at 300 PM EST Tue Feb 20 2024

Wednesday Night - Thursday Night... Ridging will quickly flatten out 
as troughing in the central CONUS begins to deepen. Clouds will 
begin to build into the region from west to east as the next frontal 
system approaches the region. WAA ahead of the system will bring 
warm and moist T/Td into the region. PWATs are forecasted to be near 
1 inch, which is within the upper portion of climatology. The region 
will be located under the left exit region of a strong upper-level 
jet, a digging mid-level trough, increasing cyclonic vorticity 
advection, a 45kt LLJ, and an approaching frontal boundary at the 
surface are all ingredients for favorable dynamic lift. Ample lift 
and moisture will lead to sufficient rain production and thunder. 

PoPs will begin in the early morning hours on Thursday and steadily 
increase through the day. Rain will exit the region to the east by 
early Friday morning. QPF will be between 0.5-0.9 inches.

Looking at forecast soundings, instability still looks to be limited 
and elevated. However, if we see more waves of rain move through the 
region with some warming potential between waves, we could see 
instability become more surface based. There is ample low level 
shear. If things shape up, we could see a marginal severe threat. 
However, again, the limiting factor is the consistent cloud coverage 
impeding the warming potential. 


Friday - Weekend... On Friday, we will see clearing skies and 
slightly cooler temperatures as the region will be under weak CAA. A 
fast approaching shortwave will clip the Ohio Valley from the north, 
which could bring isolated to scattered precip chances on Saturday. 
Forecast confidence for precip Saturday is low due to diverging 
model guidance and dry air in the low levels. Sunday will then be 
dry with high pressure to the southeast of the region and weak 
ridging overhead.


Early Next Week... A upper low will track thorugh southern Canada, 
bringing a cold front south. This front will likely become 
stationary just north of the region as the low tracks quickly off to 
the east. This front could lead to light precip on Monday. Another 
system may also develop over the Rockies and track east, which could 
be our next storm system by mid-week.

&&

.AVIATION /00Z TAFS THROUGH 06Z THURSDAY/...
Issued at 625 PM EST Tue Feb 20 2024

VFR conditions continue through the current forecast period.

A few high clouds will stream across the region tonight into 
tomorrow morning, gradually increasing in coverage through the day 
on Wednesday. An area of low pressure which will develop across the 
Plains late tonight will bring increased S/SW winds to regional 
terminals on Wednesday, with wind speeds tomorrow afternoon 
generally on the order of 10-14 kt. Have gone ahead and included 
wind gusts at most sites tomorrow afternoon as a LLJ approaches the 
region from the west; confidence in wind gusts is highest at HNB and 
BWG.

Cloud bases will begin to trend downward late tomorrow afternoon as 
the aforementioned LLJ starts to bring more low-level moisture to 
the region from the SW. The LLJ core will increase the potential for 
LLWS by around 06Z Thursday, but confidence is too low at this time 
to carry in the forecast.

.KEY MESSAGES...

- Low relative humidities, around 25%, can be expected for 
  Wednesday afternoon.

- Afternoon highs will peak around 60 degrees both Wednesday and
  Thursday afternoon before dropping to around 45 to 50 degrees 
  Saturday.

- Afternoon highs will rebound once again into the 60s to near 70
  for the start of the following week.

- Gusty winds of 25 to 30 mph will be possible Thursday

- A widespread, soaking rain (near 100 percent chance) is expected
  Thursday into Thursday night.

.UPDATE...
Issued at 613 PM EST TUE FEB 20 2024

High pressure is parked off toward the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
This will keep the weather quiet through night. Doing a quick 
update to align grids with the latest obs and trends, but no other
big changes needed.

&&

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Wednesday night)
Issued at 433 PM EST TUE FEB 20 2024

Transient upper level ridging and surface high pressure will
succumb to an approaching storm system Wednesday night. Until 
then high pressure will continue to keep our weather dry through 
Wednesday, with temperatures warming into the lower 60s by 
Wednesday afternoon. Dry air will mix down again Wednesday 
afternoon, yielding RH values to around 25 percent over much of 
the area. Winds will increase Wednesday night into Thursday, to 
about 15 mph with gusts up to around 25 mph. A cold front will 
approach and move through eastern Kentucky for Thursday and 
Thursday night, bringing a widespread soaking rainfall to the 
area.

Looking for a strong ridge valley split tonight. Low boundary
layer dew points and clear skies will allow for strong decoupling
over our sheltered valleys tonight. A light southerly gradient 
wind will help accent that split by keeping temperatures up along
our thermal belt (ridges), resulting in a potential 10-15 degree 
split. After seeing today's temperatures respond to a relatively
strong mid-February sun, climbing close to the 75th percentile of
the NBM, decided to increase afternoon highs Wednesday to the 
75th percentile as well, or very close. Mid/high level clouds will
be on the increase late in the day tomorrow, which may temper 
afternoon temps just a bit. But southerly gradient winds will be 
on a gradual increase as well, thus the 75th percentile will 
likely work out well. Gradient winds strengthen even more 
Wednesday night. A fairly mixy boundary layer in combination with 
more substantial cloud cover will likely result in more uniform 
temps through the overnight period into Thursday morning. Went 
with a normal diurnal curve but valley temps may hit their lows 
sometime in the evening before leveling off and possibly warming 
through the remainder of the night as the boundary layer becomes 
increasingly mixed out. The threat of showers just reaches into 
the forecast area, generally along and north of the Mountain 
Parkway during the pre-dawn hours of Thursday morning.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 306 PM EST TUE FEB 20 2024

We will begin the forecast period with a cold front and low 
pressure to our west and northwest. There will be a short and long
wave trough that will push into the Ohio Valley through the day 
and into Thursday night. This will all combine with the left exit 
region divergence from a jet streak that will push to our south 
and lead to widespread rain (near 100 percent chance), mainly 
Thursday evening into Thursday night. The deterministic NBM shows 
around 0.5 to 0.75 area wide for the event, with the ensembles 
showing chances of 1 inch in the 24-hour period ending at 7 AM 
Friday in the 3060 percent range from southeast to northwest. 
While there is some potential for overachieving the moisture in 
the profiles, the PWAT values are less than an inch, and the front
is fairly progressive. Even so, WPC does have us in a marginal, 
which is fine given the potential for convection, and this will be
watched as we get closer. The trend has been northward with the 
higher QPF amounts based on the previously mentioned chances of 1 
inch in 24 hours, and this would favor lower amounts. We could 
also see some gustier winds in the 25 to 30 mph range Thursday 
afternoon ahead of this system. This system exits east Friday, and
we will see rain showers come to and end for most locations 
throughout the day.

This will lead into a period of dry weather through Friday night.
Then another embedded shortwave moves fast from northwest to
southeast Saturday. This will bring another shot of rain showers
in the far east and southeast and possibly a mix of snow in mainly
the higher terrain. While most other locations remain dry,
especially those west of I-75, The highs will be a few degrees
below normal for this time of year, with normal at JKL around 50
degrees and LOZ around 51 degrees. We then see yet another dry
period on Sunday as we see high pressure pushing just to the east.
This will lead to a warm day under a warm air advection pattern,
with highs around 60 degrees. Another period of active weather
will arrive by the first part of next week. There has been some
uncertainty about the timing of this system, leading to varying
chances of rain. The first is a shortwave that comes across
Monday, and the second is a much stronger system that deepens in
the plains, bringing broad divergence aloft eastward Tuesday.
Given this, there remains a fair amount of uncertainty with
regards to precipitation amounts, with the largest scale ascent
being Tuesday and overall higher chances of rain at around 40 to
60 percent from south to north.

&&

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Wednesday evening)
ISSUED AT 613 PM EST TUE FEB 20 2024

High pressure will provide VFR conditions through the TAF period.
The winds will remain light tonight, but pick up out of the south
at around 5 to 8 knots with perhaps a few gusts of 15 knots by
Wednesday afternoon.

.DISCUSSION...
Issued at 145 PM CST Tue Feb 20 2024

Broad and strong upper ridging over the central US is keeping
skies clear today. This is reflected at the surface by ridging
over AL/MS/GA which has us in a relatively light south to
southwesterly flow at the surface. Temperatures are warming into
the 60s at most sites with dewpoints in the mid to upper 20s. We
will do it again tomorrow as the upper ridge axis moves
overhead. Surface flow will be a little stronger and we should
have dewpoints working into the 40s with temperatures working
towards 70 degrees. A little bit of high cloud may work in late
but for the most part another sunny day is forecast.

A weak shortwave begins to approach the area Wednesday night as
part of a very progressive westerly jet pattern. Lower-level
cyclone forms up over IA/MO as the trough approaches Wednesday
morning and our 850-sfc flow picks up in response. Gusty south
winds (probably gusting go 25-30 mph) carry in another increase
in low level moisture with dewpoints rising into the middle 50s.
Everything looks fairly similar setup wise with 3-6 km lapse
rates at 7-7.5 C/km which gives us very modest MLCAPE values at
200-400 J/kg but the 0-3km lapse rates and overall
thermodynamics are quite poor. By the time the warmer dewpoints
arrive with the afternoon heating the 850mb jet is departing to
the west. So at peak heating hodographs don't look particularly
impressive. In the afternoon hours when models are more keen to
fire up at least a little convection flow is much more
unidirectional out of the west but freezing levels are only
about 8500 ft AGL so will need to keep an eye for some hailers
given the deep layer shear. Looking at the western Gulf of
Mexico and Bay of Campeche it looks pretty worked over by the
last front and doesn't look like dewpoints are ripe to
overachieve. Ensemble and  guidance is tightly clustered around
54-57 degrees which would be just a little too cool to be 
extremely concerning.

The cold front sweeps through Thursday night cooling us a 
little for Friday and Saturday, but flow quickly shifts back to 
southerly for Sunday with warmer temperatures back Sunday and 
Monday. Warmer dewpoints follow quickly behind and warm- 
advection driven rain and rain shower chances start up Monday 
night. Tuesday afternoon GFS/ECMWF have a southwest to northeast
oriented jet max at 150-170 kt aloft with a strengthening 
cyclone over the Great Lakes region. A broad warm sector with 
rich low-layer moisture sweeps over the Mississippi and Ohio 
River Valleys with sfc dewpoints locally working into the lower 
60s. 850 mb flow is painted at 50-60 kts ahead of an approaching
front. The multi-day southwest flow off the Mexican Plateau is 
hallmark for an EML with drier and warmer air aloft which could 
steepen mid level lapse rates but also lead to a capping 
inversion, so we will need to see how that thermodynamic detail 
works out. It has the overall synoptic setup for severe weather 
however and we will need to watch it closely in the coming days.

&&

.AVIATION /00Z TAFS THROUGH 00Z THURSDAY/...
Issued at 430 PM CST Tue Feb 20 2024

Gridded time/height cross sections show a mostly clear sky
excepting a few high clouds, with a light wind regime for the 
first half of the package. Surface high pressure anchors firmly  
to our east tmrw as low pressure develops to our west. As it
approaches, the gradient will be tightening and we'll see winds
pick up out of the south tmrw and then get some gustiness into 
the planning phase (pm) hours of the forecast. In addition, high
clouds will increase with BKN250 CIGs becoming more prevalant.
Diurnal CU developing around 3K FT AGL may offer SCT-BKN MVFR

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.
