Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Louisville KY
959 PM EDT Fri Aug 14 2020

.Forecast Update...
Issued at 955 PM EDT Fri Aug 14 2020

Showers and storms from earlier this afternoon and evening have 
mostly cleared the area, with just a few lingering showers in our 
CWA. Further north and east, continue to see some better precip 
coverage slowly moving west/southwest. Overall, expect precip 
chances to continue through the overnight period, generally east of 
I-65. Flash Flood Watch has been extended for portions of east-
central and south-central KY as these areas will be closer to the 
weak low-level circulation. Any showers/storms that form in this 
area would have very slow storm motions in a moist environment, 
leading to potential for some heavy rainers. Also of concern for 
tonight will be the potential for fog development, as satellite 
imagery is showing some decent breaks in the clouds over the area.
For now, will maintain patchy fog wording over much of the 
forecast area, with greatest threat of fog being in areas that 
received rainfall today.

&&

.Short Term...(This evening through Saturday)
Issued at 255 PM EDT Fri Aug 14 2020

...Localized Flooding Threat Continues...

Convection has started to redevelop across southern KY at this hour 
as this area has been cleared out the longest from morning 
convective debris. Expect scattered to numerous showers and storms 
to continue filling in through the afternoon and evening mainly 
along and south of the Ohio River as the rest of the CWA 
destabilized and an upper disturbance remains in the area as a 
trigger. Most confident in coverage across southern and east central 
KY, but can't rule out showers/storms anywhere in the CWA at this 
point.

Not much has changed with the Flash Flood Watch and from morning 
thinking with the afternoon/evening showers and storms as slow 
movement, a juicy atmosphere (PWATs ~2"), and primed antecedent 
conditions in some spots that saw earlier heavy rain could all 
contribute to a localized flooding threat. Overall, the latest hi-
res data has backed off on coverage a bit and focused things a bit 
farther south, but with differential heating and any outflow won't 
take any one area in the watch off the table yet. 

As far as the extremely isolated strong to severe storm threat goes, 
think the chances are quite small due to several mitigating factors. 
1.) cloud cover has limited destabilization in some areas 2.) mid 
level lapse rates are unimpressive 3.) DCAPE values are quite low at 
this point. It is still possible that if any storms get going later 
that an isolated wet microburst can't be ruled out, but beyond that 
the threat isn't substantial enough to mention.

Expect the bulk of coverage to diminish after sunset with the loss 
of heating, but will keep at least some chances into tonight, 
especially east of I-65. There is some hint that another complex of 
showers storms lingers in the Bluegrass region past Midnight. This 
is where we will have the highest pops.

As we move into Saturday the upper trough axis will be sliding east 
of the area, which should bring drier/subsident conditions across 
our west. Any isolated to widely scattered showers and storms should 
mainly be focused across our east CWA. Look for highs in the low to 
mid 80s east, and mid to upper 80s across the central and western 
CWA.

.Long Term...(Saturday night through Friday)
Issued at 220 PM EDT Fri Aug 14 2020

A series of shortwave troughs embedded in broader NW flow aloft will 
traverse through the first part of the long term. The first 
shortwave trough will push through Sunday afternoon and have a weak 
trailing cold front at the surface. Models depict some low level 
moisture pooling ahead of the front with scattered showers and 
storms developing during the daytime. Temperatures won't drop much 
behind the front, but we should see a notable drop in dewpoints from 
low 70s to low 60s by Monday morning. 

Another shortwave trough will then come swinging through the north 
late Monday, and this one will have a slightly "stronger" cold front 
with it. We could see additional showers and storms ahead of the 
front late Monday into Tuesday, with drier air and high pressure 
building in from the north late Tuesday into Wednesday. High 
temperatures starting Tuesday of next week and continuing into the 
end of the week will likely be in the low to mid 80s, with dewpoints 
at more tolerable (low 60s) levels for August standards. There may 
be additional chances for precipitation mid to late week, but 
confidence in how the finer details of the upper level pattern will 
evolve remains low, so will broadbrush PoPs for time being.

&&

.Aviation...(00Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 730 PM EDT Fri Aug 14 2020

Current radar shows some lingering showers and storms across the 
area, with BWG being the only site impacted at this time. Overall, 
expect convection to continue diminishing over the next few hours, 
with mostly dry weather expected at the TAF sites overnight. Models 
continue to hint at potential for patchy fog development overnight, 
especially in areas that received rainfall today. However, fog 
development will remain largely dependent on degree of cloud 
coverage overnight. For now, have just included mention of MVFR fog 
at BWG/LEX/HNB. After daybreak on Saturday, VFR conditions are 
expected to prevail across the area.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED
National Weather Service Jackson KY
1020 PM EDT Fri Aug 14 2020

.UPDATE...
Issued at 1020 PM EDT FRI AUG 14 2020

In conjunction with the neighbors have decided to extend the Flash
Flood Watch through the night until 12z. The CAMs remain divided
on the extent of the threat but given the soaked antecedent
conditions and slow storm/shower movement felt it was best to keep
the banner hoisted through the night. Accordingly with this update
the PoPs and QPF have been updated for current radar trends and
the blended CAMs solution on the higher side of the model
spectrum. Did also incorporate the latest obs and trends for the 
T/Td grids, as well. These updated grids have been sent to the
NDFD and web servers along with updated text-based FFA, ZFP, HWO,
and SAFs. 

UPDATE Issued at 900 PM EDT FRI AUG 14 2020

00z sfc analysis shows general low pressure through eastern
Kentucky in conjunction with a stalled boundary just to our
north. This has continued to support a very moist air mass across
the area that when combined with weak steering winds aloft have
made for some very slow moving - if at all - cells leading to
excessive rainfall for a good portion of the area. For this reason
a Flash Flood Watch is in effect and will continue until after
midnight. This will be evaluated through the evening for potential
extension as a the CAMs are currently divided on whether the
threat extends beyond 06z. Otherwise, temperatures are running in
the low to mid 70s most places with dewpoints at best a degree or
two lower. Beneath mostly cloudy skies some fog has been able to
develop and this will likely worsen in many places through the
night - but also probably not become too dense given a lack of
radiational component on account of the cloud cover. Meanwhile,
winds are light and variable away from any storm. Have updated the
forecast to re-identify the highest PoP and QPF locations well 
into the night. Also, added the current T/Td obs and trends into 
those grids. These grid updates have been sent to the NDFD and web
servers along with a freshened set of zones and SAF. 

&&

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Saturday night)
Issued at 505 PM EDT FRI AUG 14 2020

An upper level trough was located over the Lower OH Valley late
this afternoon with a MCV or mesolow feature moving through this
having migrated from the Pulaski County vicinity to near JKL this
afternoon. Further north and west of the area a shortwave trough
moving near the US/Canadian border was nearing the upper MS Valley.
Slow moving showers and thunderstorms with torrential rainfall 
rates continue moving across southern and southeastern portions of
the area with 2.22 inches recently having fallen in less than 2 
hours at the KY Mesonet Site near Quicksand just southwest of the 
JKL office. Recent SPC mesoanalysis has PW in the 1.8 to 2 inches 
range across the area with the max in PW extending from near KHTS 
southwest to near Lake Cumberland. Generally 1000 to 1500 J/kg of 
MLCAPE is analyzed over the area at this time. 

The upper level trough will continue meandering east tonight and
into Saturday before, the trough moving near the US/Canadian 
border and into the northern Great Lakes essentially kicks it to 
the east of the area on Saturday night. Convection should continue
into the evening, gradually spreading into locations that have 
not yet received activity and some additional redevelopment could 
also occur. With the loss of daytime heating, coverage of
convection should wane by midnight. This activity will remain 
slow moving through the evening and with high PW remaining, the 
area as much as 2 to 3 inches in a couple hours will remain 
possible. Thereafter, showers and a stray thunderstorm will also 
be possible, especially in the east where they may linger for much
of the nigh or perhaps redevelop toward dawn per recent guidance.
The greatest threat for any flash flooding will be through the
evening hours and the Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through
6Z or 2 AM EDT on Saturday. 

With the upper level trough still moving east across the region on
Saturday and into Saturday evening, a diurnal increase in showers
and thunderstorms will occur with activity waning by late Saturday
evening with the loss of daytime heating and the trough moving
east of the area. At the same time, the sfc cold front should be
sagging south and east of the area Saturday into Saturday night 
with next cold beginning to approach from the west as the shortwave
trough moves into the Great Lakes. PW will still remain considerably
above average for mid August into Saturday though will be 
decreasing from northwest to southeast by the afternoon. Some 
locally heavy rain leading to minor flood concerns will again be 
possible, but should be more isolated in nature as compared to 
today. Some fog and or stratus will be possible as wind slacken 
and mid and upper level moisture decreases. 

.LONG TERM...(Sunday through Friday)
Issued at 445 PM EDT FRI AUG 14 2020

A pleasantly cooler and less humid stretch of weather is ahead 
for eastern Kentucky. The models generally remain in good 
agreement through the extended period, showing a stout upper level
ridge over the US/Canadian Rockies with a strong parent high 
centered near the Great Basin. Meanwhile, a seasonably strong
upper level trough sets up over eastern North America. This trough
will support a surface cold front crossing the Ohio Valley on 
Sunday, passing across eastern Kentucky late Sunday into Sunday 
night. Another shortwave trough, rotating around the parent 
trough, will support a secondary cool front crossing the area on 
Tuesday. This second front stalls along the East Coast Wednesday 
and Thursday while multiple weak waves ride along it.

Any morning valley fog should give way to mostly sunny skies
Sunday morning as weak high pressure noses across the area.
However, the cumulus clouds will again be on the increase during 
the afternoon as a broken line of showers and storms develops 
along/ahead of the first cold front approaching from the 
northwest. Expect that most of the convection will be weakening 
once it reaches our area given lackluster moisture and loss of 
daytime heating. Mostly sunny conditions are expected again on 
Monday with just a slight chance for a stray shower, mainly over 
southeast Kentucky, closer to the departing front. The second 
front approaches from the north late Monday but any associated 
shower activity is not expected to reach our area before we lose 
daytime instability. That front will make its way across our CWA 
on Tuesday probably sparking at least widely scattered showers or 
storms, mainly south of the Mountain Parkway. Additional shower 
and storm chances are expected Wednesday and Thursday as the front
hangs up to our east. Temperatures are expected to run near to 
slightly below normal through the period.

&&

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening)
ISSUED AT 830 PM EDT FRI AUG 14 2020

Conditions continue to vary at the start of this TAF period, from
VFR to MVFR and even some IFR - thanks to pockets of thicker fog 
and scattered tropical showers. In general, the convection 
coverage will likely gradually wane but remain a threat through 
the night. Wet conditions/moist lower levels heading into the 
night will favor low clouds and fog developing, particularly 
after 06z, resulting in MVFR and IFR conditions in most locations 
through the night with some spots possibly reaching airport 
minimums for a time toward 12z. Gradually improvement is expected 
during Saturday afternoon with some low end VFR cigs possible by 
the end of the period.

.SHORT TERM...(Tonight through Sunday night)
Issued at 300 PM CDT Fri Aug 14 2020

Pesky upper trof finally departs the region tonight. Ongoing
sct convection, mainly over western KY/far southern IL should 
diminish with setting of the sun as the trof shifts east. This
will leave us in a northwest flow regime aloft for Sat, which will
aid in pushing a surface front southeast toward the region during
the day. Overall moisture and forcing will be weak ahead of the
front, but would not be surprised if we get at least some 
isolated to sct convection ahead of it over portions of sw IL 
during the heat of the afternoon. If that occurs, those would 
probably try to sink southeast toward the OH River, before waning 
in the early evening. 

Surface high pressure should then take over for Sunday, bringing a
rainfree end to the weekend to most locations. Should end up with
noticeably lower humidity levels during the afternoon, as 
somewhat drier air mixes into the region. In fact, low temps 
Sunday night will likely dip into the lower half of the 60s for 
the first time in quite some time. 

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Friday)
Issued at 300 PM CDT Fri Aug 14 2020

Although most of the deterministic/ensemble guidance was generally 
similar with the initialization of synoptic features, the Canadian 
Guidance appeared to fair the best.

For the most part the extended period is dominated by a slight 
ridging or northwest oriented zonal flow from western Canada, 
wrapping around a fixed ridge centered over the southwest U.S. 

One minor, low amplitude, shortwave rotates around the a Hudson Bay 
Canada low on Monday, but is moisture starved by the time it reaches 
the WFO PAH forecast area.  

A second and stronger wave sharpens and deepens Tuesday morning 
through Tuesday evening from northwest to southeast over the WFO PAH 
forecast area. The Canadian suggests that enough moisture and 
instability may be in place for isolated to widely scattered 
convection during the aforementioned time period. However, both the 
North American Ensemble Forecast System (NAEFS) and the GFS Ensemble 
seem to indicate a trend for more negative standard deviations of 
moisture, lift, and precipitation for Tuesday. The most aggressive 
model guidance averages a total of three tenths of an inch of 
precipitation, while the majority of the guidance from an areal 
perspective only products six hundreds of an inch of precipitation 
or less.  The NBM (National Blend of Models) seem to support a drier 
solution hint by the NAEFS/GEFS. So for now, plan to keep Tuesday 
dry for the time being.

For Wednesday and Thursday, the WFO PAH forecast area gets stuck in 
a developing blocking pattern with the southwest U.S. ridge and 
developing eastern Atlantic ridge. The blended NBM guidance 
initialization suggest a token rain chance in the extreme southeast 
portion of the west Kentucky Pennyrile. From a collaborative 
standpoint, will leave a small chance for rain in place there. 

By Friday, moisture flow around the eastern Atlantic ridge into the 
southeast U.S. will interact with a well defined shear zone along 
the Ohio River, leading to a newly developed low/middle level low in 
the lower Mississippi Valley. The chance of rain, still mainly 
confined to west Kentucky (east of the Land Between the Lakes) 
should increase slightly. 

Given the northwest flow dominating through the period, will keep 
temperatures 5 to 8 degrees below normal for this time of year. 

&&

.AVIATION...
Issued at 546 PM CDT Fri Aug 14 2020

Late day convection may linger into the early evening hours,
mostly likely at KCGI, due to the presence of a nearby boundary.
Otherwise, with loss of diurnal heating, convective chances will
be waning, and clouds scattering. Patchy fog may then develop
during the overnight hours, with potential vsby restrictions late.
VFR conditions will return during the daylight hours tmrw, but
scattered low VFR bases will develop with PM heating, and while 
not included in this issuance, will have to consider possibility 
of vicinity mention some of these bases could yield convective 
chances during the planning phase of the forecast, most likely 
north and west (KMVN-KCGI).

...Warm And Humid With Scattered Showers And Thunderstorms Into The Weekend...

Scattered storms will prevail through the evening hours, before diminishing with sunset. Storms have yet again shown capable of producing very heavy rainfall, which has led to some flash flooding. Remember, if coming across a flooded road, turn around and find an alternative route. Many times it is too hard to judge the depth of the water or the condition of the road underneath.

A couple more unsettled days of rain chances follow over the weekend, closing with the passage of a cold front on Sunday. Drier, cooler, and less humid air then arrives next work week. Outlooks hint the cooler weather sticks around for much of the remainder of August.
