National Weather Service Louisville KY
1110 AM EDT Sun May 26 2019

.Forecast Update...
Issued at 1111 AM EDT Sun May 26 2019

...A Few Strong Storms Expected This Afternoon...

Confidence continues to increase that we will see development of 
scattered thunderstorms by early to mid afternoon across the region. 
Current visible satellite imagery shows mostly sunny skies over the 
CWA. With several hours of heating still to go and dew points in the 
mid to upper 60s, we should become moderately unstable by early to 
mid afternoon. ML CAPE values will likely reach up around the 1500 
J/KG range, with pockets of ~2000 J/KG possible.

Regional radar shows an MCV currently over the St. Louis region, and 
this feature is expected to continue on it's ENE trajectory toward 
our area later by afternoon. This feature, along with differential 
heating and local effects, will likely be enough to trigger 
scattered to numerous showers and storms by early afternoon across 
our western CWA, moving east through the afternoon and early 
evening. 

Overall deep layer shear will be fairly weak in the 25-35 knot 
range, however it is marginal enough that a few of the strongest 
storms may be able to organize. Any severe threat will likely be 
limited to isolated damaging wind gusts given DCAPE values above 
1000. Marginally severe hail can't be ruled out, but would only 
expect that threat with the strongest updrafts.

Did want to note that some forecast soundings still show a decent 
subsidence inversion around H7 likely due to our proximity to the 
upper ridge anchored over the SE CONUS. This feature could play a 
limiting factor, however given good model agreement (including the 
CAMs) that storms will fire feel that any inversion will be 
overcome.

&&

.Short Term...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 300 AM EDT Sun May 26 2019

Very warm and humid conditions will continue across the Ohio Valley 
today, but will turn more unsettled as the Gulf Coast upper ridge 
starts to break down. The weakening in the ridge will allow a quasi-
stationary front to our north to sag closer to the area as the day 
progresses. Vigorous convection is going through the night along the 
Iowa/Missouri border and eastward across central Illinois. These 
storms will expand into central Indiana through daybreak, putting 
out boundaries to their south and east. North-south band of storms 
from Kansas City to Tulsa is weakening, but we'll need to watch for 
any MCV that can generate. 

Expect at least scattered thunderstorms to fire mainly over southern 
Indiana toward mid-afternoon in a juicy air mass. Steep low-level 
lapse rates and plenty of DCAPE will support a damaging wind threat, 
so SPC has a Slight Risk for southern Indiana and much of central 
Kentucky. Will roll with a 40-50 POP in Indiana and the northern 
tier or two of Kentucky counties, and that may be on the 
conservative side. Precip chances taper down fairly sharply south of 
the Parkways, as south-central Kentucky could be left high and dry. 
Highs near 90 are a good bet in south-central Kentucky, and could be 
in play as far north as Louisville and especially Lexington 
depending on convective timing. 

Storms should be able to push through the area during the late 
afternoon and evening hours, allowing us to dry out from west to 
east after midnight. This could be a decent fog setup, but will be 
limited by a mid-level cloud deck along and north of the I-64 
corridor, so will not get carried away until we see how much rain 
falls and where.

.Long Term...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 305 AM EDT Sun May 26 2019

Memorial Day...

A weak warm front is forecast to lift NE across the OH Valley during 
the day. This boundary will lie roughly across southern IN into 
northern KY Monday morning. An axis of higher moisture and 
instability aligned near the boundary could facilitate isolated 
convection over our northern forecast area Monday before lifting NE 
out of our area later in the day. However, any cells will not 
greatly hamper outdoor activities. It will be quite warm and humid 
with afternoon highs in the mid 80s to around 90 with max heat 
indices a few degrees higher.

Tuesday and Wednesday...

The stout ridge aloft over the southeastern U.S. is expected to 
build northward temporarily on Tue across the lower OH Valley. This 
should keep conditions dry. GFS model soundings show a subsidence 
inversion aloft which should keep a cap on storm development, 
despite steep mid-level lapse rates above the cap. Afternoon high 
temps should top out from 86 to 91, about 5-10 degrees above normal.

On Tue night, a line of convection, potentially severe, is expected 
over the eastern Plains and mid MS Valley. Models bring this 
activity into the OH Valley on Wed in a weakened state, with the 
models then dissipating the activity pretty quickly over the lower 
OH Valley, including our forecast area. Have to wonder whether this 
dissipation will occur as quickly as models state, or whether 
scattered showers and storms could still occur. Our latest blended 
forecast reflects "chance" probabilities Wed morning into early 
afternoon before falling off. 

Thursday...

Renewed convection is forecast Wed afternoon and night over parts of 
the southern Plains and lower MS Valley, which should propagate NE 
into the TN and lower OH Valleys on Thu ahead of a decent shortwave 
trough that should facilitate ample forcing. As a result, scattered 
to numerous showers and storms are expected. However, storm 
intensity is in question due to cloud cover and timing potentially 
tempering instability somewhat despite moderate shear. Nevertheless, 
a few strong cells may still occur, especially over parts of central 
KY where the best heating may occur prior to precip onset.

Friday and next weekend...

Models suggest passage of a weak cold front Thu night and Fri 
associated with the Thu system. Surface high pressure should build 
in behind it with a modest drop in humidity and mainly dry weather 
Fri and Sat. Expect afternoon highs Fri within a few degrees of 80, 
then about 80-85 Sat afternoon. Despite some model differences, a 
developing westerly flow pattern aloft should bring low-level 
moisture back to the lower OH Valley starting on Sunday with a 
chance of showers and storms at that time.

&&

.Aviation...(12Z TAF Issuance)
Updated at 645 AM EDT Sun May 26 2019

VFR conditions this morning with light SW winds. Expect deep mixing 
to develop late morning and continue into the afternoon, with high-
based diurnal cu and plenty of gusts around 20 kt.  

Thunderstorm potential late this afternoon into evening is dependent 
on the progression of any boundaries laid out by convection to our 
north. Also seeing a hint of an MCV over the Ozarks, so if either of 
those come into play we could see storms fire mid/late afternoon. 
Still think HNB has a decent chance so will go for a TEMPO there, 
just flirting with fuel-alternate cig/vis. SDF and LEX are late 
enough to go with PROB30, but confidence may be a little lower than 
that. 

Any convection should depart by mid-evening, with mid-level ceilings 
and light winds for the rest of the night.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
National Weather Service Jackson KY
1045 AM EDT Sun May 26 2019

.UPDATE...
Issued at 1045 AM EDT SUN MAY 26 2019

The severe threat looks to be on the upswing for this afternoon.
Model soundings from the 12Z NAM indicate MLCAPE around 1200 J/kg
late this afternoon in the northern part of the area, with DCAPE 
values around 1000 J/kg. While the shear is not too impressive, 
there may be enough to support organized convection. In fact the 
HRRR is showing an updraft helicity track in our area late this 
afternoon. Consecutive runs of the HRRR have gradually become more
aggressive with convection in our area, especially between 20Z 
and 00Z. Updated NDFD and associated products to increase 
thunderstorm chances across the north this afternoon. 


UPDATE Issued at 804 AM EDT SUN MAY 26 2019

Based on satellite imagery, raised the sky cover to start the day. 
Otherwise, forecast was in good shape.

&&

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Monday)
Issued at 450 AM EDT SUN MAY 26 2019

We continue in the same general scenario that we've been part of
for a number of days, on the periphery of a strong upper level
high over the southeast CONUS. It will largely keep a lid on deep
convection, but there is some potential for thunderstorms at 
times, especially over the northern portion of the forecast area 
which is farthest from the high and closest to a slowly
approaching cold front.

The first shot at storms will come from a weak shortwave trough 
currently over eastern KS. The trough will move eastward and 
support thunderstorm development. The best chance of precip is to 
our north, but models support the southern extent reaching into 
the JKL forecast area this evening. The forecast mean layer CAPE, 
when combined with modest shear, could be enough to fuel a few 
strong storms, especially over the northern part of the area. The 
supporting wave will exit to the east late tonight and most precip
should taper off.

The aforementioned cold front is expected to stall near the Ohio
River early Monday morning, and then begin a creep back to the
north. Another shortwave trough, currently over Baja California,
will ripple through the flow and pass to our north early Monday 
evening. This will once again support deep convection, with the
best support to our north. However, development may occur as far
south as KY late Sunday into Monday evening.

.LONG TERM...(Monday night through Saturday)
Issued at 450 AM EDT SUN MAY 26 2019

The long term period will begin as a shortwave that brought a chance 
of showers, mainly for the north/northeast late Monday into early 
Tuesday, moves off to the northeast. A period of drier and warmer 
weather will then follow for Tuesday as surface high pressure and 
upper level ridging take hold. The models are in decent agreement 
with the upper level pattern through much of the work week as well, 
showing a ridge over the southeastern CONUS with the progression of 
a few weak shortwaves. A deep trough is also present over the 
western CONUS. This pattern looks to hold until late week before a 
northern stream shortwave trough builds down and traverses through 
the Ohio Valley. However, model disagreement becomes more prevalent 
during this time, increasing uncertainty in timing of this feature.

Coincident with the upper level pattern, a surface low pressure 
system will progress from Iowa into the Ohio Valley through late 
week. A cold front associated with this low pressure will move 
through eastern Kentucky and increase chances of showers Thursday. 
Also, with modest instability, thunderstorms will be possible in 
afternoon and into the evening. Showers from this system will taper 
off into early Friday, but slight chances for isolated showers and 
thunderstorms will remain possible through late afternoon Friday as 
surface high pressure builds back into the region and eventually to 
the southeast of the state for the start of the weekend. With high 
pressure to the southeast of the Commonwealth, a more summer-like 
pattern of scattered showers is then expected during the afternoon 
and evening Saturday.

High temperatures will be very warm, in the lower 90s, through 
midweek. With the passage of a cold front, highs will then decrease 
to the lower to mid 80s Thursday through Friday. Mid 80s are then 
likely next Saturday as well. Low temperatures will generally be in 
the 60s, but will decrease to the upper 50s following FROPA later in 
the work week.

&&

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday morning)
ISSUED AT 804 AM EDT SUN MAY 26 2019

Mainly VFR conditions are forecast through the period. One 
exception will be valley fog in some locations during early 
morning and late night hours. However, it should not affect TAF 
sites. Another exception could be due to showers/thunderstorms 
this evening, with the main threat north of the Mountain Parkway. 
However, the uncertainty precludes using anything more than VCTS 
in the TAF at KSYM at this point.

938 AM CDT Sun May 26 2019

.UPDATE...
Issued at 937 AM CDT Sun May 26 2019

We are set up better for convection today vs. yesterday. Apparent
MCV and associated surface reflection (low) moving toward E/SE
Missouri this morning accompanied by a weak thermal trof aloft. We
see 40 to 50 kts of H5 flow in close proximity to the right rear
quad region south of the wave. Elevated nature to convection still
in play. But we are destabilizing faster east of the wave vs. what
we saw yesterday. All in all, we upped PoPs a bit to account for
what we see this morning. Having said that, still looking at
scattered for now. Given the track of the MCV, the SPC outlook 
area seems reasonable, though I wouldn't rule out strong 
convection anywhere, least likely maybe the KHOP area. Rest of the
forecast looks on track for today into the early evening hours.

&&

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Tuesday night)
Issued at 308 AM CDT Sun May 26 2019

Models show a cold front, currently extending from southern Lake 
Michigan to southwest Missouri, moving a little farther south 
today. Current radar shows a thunderstorm complex just north of 
the PAH forecast area continuing to expand slowly southward along 
with a couple of outflow boundaries. Shower and thunderstorm 
chances will slowly increase from north to south across our region
through the morning, with good chances north to slight chances 
south by midday. Convection will continue through the afternoon, 
with chances decreasing from southwest to northeast late this 
afternoon into early this evening as the front lifts northeast. 
Dry conditions are expected by late evening and overnight. 

Despite more cloud cover, temperatures today will continue to be 
unseasonably warm, with highs in the middle 80s north to the upper
80s south. Lows tonight will be mostly in the upper 60s.

With the front just northeast of our region on Monday, daytime
heating will return a small chance of showers to portions of 
southwest Indiana during the morning hours. The front should move 
far enough northeast by the afternoon to keep any convection 
northeast of our region.  Models show a surface high to our 
southeast late Monday into Tuesday, along with weak upper level 
ridging. This will keep our region dry with persistent warm 
southerly flow. Highs Monday and Tuesday will be in the upper 80s 
to around 90 degrees. Lows Monday night will be in the upper 60s 
to around 70 degrees.
 
By Tuesday night, models show a cold front approaching the middle
Mississippi valley from the west. Showers and thunderstorms will
spread east into the PAH forecast area late Tuesday night. Showers
and storms will be likely in portions of southeast Missouri, with
good chances as far east as southern Illinois and southwest
Indiana. 

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday through Saturday)
Issued at 308 AM CDT Sun May 26 2019

We continue to analyze our prospects for rain mid to late week. On 
Wednesday, there continues to be a signal for scattered showers and 
storms mainly west of a Benton to Owensboro KY line as strong 
southwest flow aloft continues ahead of a front advancing from the 
west. However, the front will struggle to move through the area 
initially, which is why the chances for rain stay in the same 
location Tuesday night into Wednesday. 

However, it appears as though another upper level wave will move 
northeast into the area Wednesday night into early Thursday as 
southwest flow aloft strengthens. A larger scale positively tilted 
upper trough in the upper Midwest, will dive east southeast toward 
the area and drive the aforementioned cold front east through the 
area during that time as well. This time frame (Wednesday night into 
Thursday morning) is looking like our best chances for widespread 
shower and thunderstorm activity. Strong to severe storms cannot be 
ruled out during this time frame. We will continue to monitor things 
this week. 

Lingering showers and storms will impact mainly areas east of the 
Mississippi River Thursday afternoon, but by Thursday night, we 
should be drying out as high pressure builds back into the region. 

As we head into Friday and the first half of the weekend, we should 
generally be in zonal flow with minimal chances for precipitation 
seen at this time. 

As far as temperatures, as noted yesterday, on Wednesday we will see 
temperatures back down into the lower to mid 80s in southeast 
MO/southern IL and parts of southwest IN but further southeast 
across west KY, upper 80s will be likely. However, with the chances 
of rain and cloud cover on Thursday, we will be cooler with highs in 
the upper 70s to lower 80s. We will rebound back into the 80s by the 
weekend.
