...Updated Aviation Discussion...

.Short Term (Now through Friday Night)...
Issued at 227 PM EDT Thu Jul 27 2017

Surface analysis reveals a weak 1012mb low over the border of 
northern OH/IN with a trailing NE-to-SW oriented cold front across 
the upper midwest. Closer to home, a warm front has moved east of 
the area resulting in the region being in the warm sector. 
Temperatures have varied a bit, with cooler temperatures in southern 
IN and northern KY in the low 80s where clouds and light showers 
have persisted through the day... and warmer temperatures down near 
the TN border where low 90s are being observed under a mix of sun 
and clouds. Dewpoints are quite high as most sites are reporting low 
to mid 70s. 

Precipitation for the most part today has under-performed what 
models were predicting in our region, despite the atmosphere being 
quite moist and saturated. High cirrus/convective debris has drifted 
from convection in IL/MO to our region and limited daytime heating 
and destabilization. Most high-res guidance suggest redevelopment of 
convection this afternoon along an MCV and old outflow boundary west 
of the region (which has already begun in southern IL/IN), but some 
uncertainty remains regarding the strength/intensity of convection 
due to marginal lapse rates and limited destabilization. Believe the 
greatest threat for any strong thunderstorms and/or torrential 
rainfall will be across south-central Kentucky where atmosphere has 
destabilized a bit more and low level lapse rates are a bit steeper. 
PWATs will remain high... generally ~2" through the afternoon and 
evening... so thunderstorms should be very efficient rain producers. 
Not anticipating enough flooding issues to warrant a flash flood 
watch, but some localized flooding is certainly possible with PWATs 
as high as they are, especially if we get storm training along 
outflow/differential heating boundaries.

The cold front will begin entering northwestern portions of the CWA 
by tomorrow morning, and should clear the region by late afternoon. 
Showers and thunderstorms will be possible along and ahead of the 
front, though some models are showing post-frontal convection due to 
steep low level lapse rates and low level moisture around 900mb-
800mb, so will keep PoPs up through most of the day tomorrow. Should 
see precipitation begin to wind down by sunset Friday as drier air 
begins working in from the north.

.Long Term (Saturday through Thursday)...
Issued at 235 PM EDT Thu Jul 27 2017

A strong +1020mb high pressure system will be sitting over the Great 
Lakes region pumping in cooler, drier air for the weekend timeframe. 
This will set up a fantastic weekend weather-wise for the lower Ohio 
Valley region, with high temperatures generally in the upper 70s to 
lower 80s, and lows in the upper 50s to mid 60s.

Much of next week the upper level pattern will feature troughing 
over the eastern US with ridging over the western US. At the 
surface, high pressure will generally dominate the weather pattern 
so the forecast will stay dry and mainly seasonable through at least 
mid week. Temperatures and humidity will moderate back to near 
normal levels as upper level troughing weakens over the region, but 
overall a quiet end to July and start to August for the lower Ohio 
Valley.

&&

.Aviation (00Z TAF Update)...
Issued at 715 PM EDT Thu Jul 27 2017

Surprisingly low confidence forecast with fairly widespread 
convection in between SDF and BWG, but much more scattered to the 
north. Hi-res models do not have a good handle on what is the 
effective boundary, but can't rule out at least VCTS in any 
substantial time period tonight with a juicy air mass, plenty of 
lingering boundaries, and upper impulses yet to move through. One 
fairly clear signal is that precip coverage will increase to support 
SHRA along with VCTS toward daybreak, with low ceilings also a good 
bet. Have gone with fuel-alternate ceilings across the board on 
Friday morning, and IFR is even a possibility at times especially 
at BWG. 

Cold front will move through Fri afternoon, with convection ending 
north to south and ceilings improving to VFR as north breezes bring 
in much cooler and drier air.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
National Weather Service Jackson KY
818 PM EDT Thu Jul 27 2017

.UPDATE...
Issued at 818 PM EDT THU JUL 27 2017

Best instability continues to shift south as showers and storms
are ongoing in southern Kentucky. A ribbon of instability is also
present across central Kentucky, but does not extend that far to
the east, so no threat of this activity making it into the area. 
May see some dying rain showers put into a portion of the area 
through the evening hours, but most of the activity will be fairly
isolated from this point forward, except in southern Kentucky 
where organized storms remain. Even in this area, activity will 
move on south over the next few hours with activity becoming more 
isolated overnight. Juicy airmass will remain through tomorrow, so
a stray shower may pop up at anytime. Plan to see how rivers and 
creeks behave over the next few hours to see if we might need to 
evaluate the need for a flash flood watch for the expected shower
and storm coverage expected on Friday with the cold front making 
its move southward. 

UPDATE Issued at 532 PM EDT THU JUL 27 2017

Numerous showers and storms continue to impact areas between I-64
in the north and the Hal Rogers Parkway in the south. Area is
getting fairly well worked over as evident from the weakening
complexes of showers and storms as they try to push east into
areas that have seen the most activity earlier this afternoon.
The best instability now is in areas that have not seen much
rainfall today and that is across the southern 2 tiers of
counties. Thus, expect any strength in the showers and storms to
shift southward into that better instability with a lull working
in from the north. As we lose the instability, we may not see much
through the overnight period as the frontal zone will still be to
our north with little forcing over the area. In fact, we may see a
little subsidence build in on the north side of a MCV pushing
southeast across western/central Tennessee. Thus, it looks like we
may have seen the worst of the rain this evening for most areas
with a general diminishing trend expected over the next several
hours. Something I will be looking at over the next few hours is
potential for fog tonight with the moist conditions with all the
rainfall, we may see locally dense fog develop if we can maintain
some clear skies tonight. Will be watching the cloud cover trends
closely to determine if some dense fog needs to be inserted into
the forecast tonight. 

&&

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Friday night)
Issued at 440 PM EDT THU JUL 27 2017

The short term period is frustrating. We have a tropical-like air
mass with weak forcing mechanisms. The result is thunderstorms
popping at times, but with little available forecast skill as to
exactly when/where the activity will occur. With high precipitable
water and efficient rainers, there are some heavy amounts where
storms train. A flash flood watch was contemplated, but with a
lack of focus for convection, there's a lack of confidence as to 
if/when/where problems might occur. However, the situation will
need to be monitored to see if a more focused threat develops.

The precip is being aided in general by a developing upper trough
over the northeast CONUS, with warm/moist air advection
underneath, and eventually a cold front impinging on the air mass.
The cold front is expected to move through from northwest to
southeast on Friday afternoon and evening, with the threat of
significant rain ending after its passage. Drier air then begins
to move in for the weekend.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday through Thursday)
Issued at 305 PM EDT THU JUL 27 2017

The extended portion of the forecast begins on Saturday with an 
upper level pattern that is typical of summer at this point. A 
stout ridge remains in place over the western CONUS with a longwave 
trough over the east. At the start of the period, a shortwave 
trough is swinging through the OH valley. At the surface, a cold 
front or boundary at this point will be slowly exiting KY through 
the southeast. Thus, with minimal CAPE and the weak boundary, 
there will still be a slight to low chance of showers and a 
thunderstorm or two by Saturday afternoon. This activity will come
to an end by Saturday night as the last of the lift exits to the 
east. 

By Sunday, surface high pressure nudges into the area, coupled
with the mid level ridge axis shifting east into the OH Valley as
well. Given the lack of return flow and increased area of
subsidence, a lengthy period of dry weather is on tap. Thus will
go with a dry forecast on Sunday and continue through the end of
the extended on Wednesday night. As well, the lower dew points
expected and below average to average high temperatures through
the period will make for pleasant weather during the extended. 

&&

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday evening)
ISSUED AT 818 PM EDT THU JUL 27 2017

A mix of IFR/MVFR conditions will be present over the next several
hours as showers and a few storms push on through the area. With
activity becoming more isolated overnight, we may see conditions
return to VFR for most of the area. However, given the recent
rains, and potential clearing, we could see some valley fog
develop overnight. Certainly a difficult aviation forecast with
lots of uncertainty on how things evolve overnight. Thus, we could
stay socked in with MVFR and IFR conditions through most of the
night. For now, going to go optimistic with the TAFS except for
the next few hours.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Paducah KY
717 PM CDT Thu Jul 27 2017

.UPDATE...
Issued at 716 PM CDT Thu Jul 27 2017

There remains minor shear, moderate surface based CAPE, little 
CIN, weak surface convergence (between the approaching cold front 
to the north and departing MCV/effective outflow boundaries over 
the southern Kentucky Pennyrile region of west Kentucky) across
the WFO PAH forecast area.

Given the weak shear aloft, the cirrus canopy from the morning and
afternoon convection limited effective heating of surface parcels
to support widespread convection. Where there was differential
heating, updrafts remained weak, making most storms outflow
dominated. In the absence of persistent upshear flow (except with
the interaction of the MCV with outflow boundaries), any potential
for multi-cell thunderstorm development was mitigated. 

Cannot rule out some focused convection with the cold frontal
boundary, but had to consider a significant reduction in the
overall PoP/Weather picture for tonight, especially between the
front and the departing MCV this evening. Adjusted the
differential mention of thunderstorms to be tied with the
departing MCV in the southern Pennyrile of west Kentucky and over
with the cold front, mainly over southwest Indiana, southeast
Illinois, and northwest Kentucky. 

The high resolution, convection allowing, HRRR model family, as
well as the NAM-WRF family suite was used to reflect rain chances,
rainfall amounts, weather type, and cloud cover for tonight. There
is some concern that the difluent northwest flow aloft may 
tighten up Friday morning, keeping a small chance for convection 
over the southern part of the WFO PAH forecast area in place early
Friday, but will need to see how the shortwave/low over Lake 
Michigan will react later tonight to determine whether it will be 
worth dropping any additional rainfall mention on Friday. 

&&

.SHORT TERM...(Tonight through Saturday night)
Issued at 249 PM CDT Thu Jul 27 2017

A cold front over central Missouri and central Illinois this
afternoon is heading southeast. This front will bring much quieter
and drier weather by the weekend. In the meantime, there will be
some potentially strong convection to deal with.

As of mid-afternoon, scattered storms were developing across the
Lower Ohio Valley. These storms were developing on the northern
edge of a pool of very moist and unstable air that was unaffected
by the early morning mcs that tracked across Illinois. These 
storms were supported by a mesoscale vorticity center over south 
central Missouri, which was evident in radar loops. This vort 
center was generated by an early morning mcs over western 
Missouri.

In the near term, convection will likely expand in coverage across
the very unstable air over western Kentucky and extreme se 
Missouri late this afternoon. Once the atmosphere is raked over 
and the vort center passes to our southeast this evening, there 
should be relatively little activity on radar. A second smaller 
round of storms is likely late tonight along the actual cold front
as it moves southeast across the Ohio River and southeast 
Missouri.

Heavy rain appears to be the primary hazard given high precip 
water values over two inches. There is also some potential for 
training cells if an organized mcs develops. Corfidi vectors
indicate a slow southward motion to any organized mcs that forms.
Individual cell motion is mostly to the east.

Once the front exits the Pennyrile region of western Kentucky
Friday morning, there will be a slow drying trend during the
afternoon. Some isolated weak convection could lag behind the
front as a strong 500 mb shortwave drops south-southeast across
the Great Lakes region. The drier air will be slow to filter south
initially, which means dew points will still be mostly in the 70s.
However, clouds should keep high temps mostly in the mid 80s.

Saturday and Saturday night will be noticeably cooler and drier.
Little if any cloudiness is expected. Model soundings indicate any
diurnal cumulus clouds would be scattered at most. Even with full
sun on Saturday, highs will range from 80 to 84 with a north 
breeze. Overnight lows will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s 
Saturday night, which will be the coolest night since June 28.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday through Thursday)
Issued at 249 PM CDT Thu Jul 27 2017

The overall forecast confidence is high.

The dominant feature on the weather map throughout the extended 
forecast will be a strong upper-level ridge over the western half of 
the country. This will result in troughing of some amplitude over 
the eastern half, including our region. At the surface, cool, dry 
high pressure will remain in place through much of the period. The 
airmass will slowly moderate, but south winds never really get 
established, so the moderating process will be slow.

The medium range models bring an upper-level storm system southeast 
through the Great Lakes or Northeast on Thursday, which could push a 
cold front into our region. Depending on the strength/path of this 
system, some convection may reach our eastern counties Thursday 
afternoon.

.AVIATION...
Issued at 716 PM CDT Thu Jul 27 2017

Removed measurable rainfall chances for the WFO PAH TAF sites for
the 00z Friday issuance. The trend is still to move from a chaotic
VFR cloud deck/ceiling (due to scattered convection) toward a 
MVFR/IFR ceiling and visibility combination as the frontal 
boundary works through each of the WFO PAH TAF sites overnight. A 
return to VFR category forecast should dominate the region after 
14z Friday for all of the WFO PAH TAF sites.
