Comments: Jefferson County GIS estimates for Jan 13, 2005, are wrong. For "last 3 days", average temp is 55, temp deviation is 23, so normal average is 32. This sounds right. For "last 7 days", average temp is 62, temp deviation is 13, so normal average is 49. There is no way this could be correct. I have noticed this sort of thing many times.

From: Tom Priddy
Thanks, Bill. I thought we had that fixed. We will correct that asap.

Comments: Question: What is the definition of "significant" as it is used in the Wednesday,12/22/04 snow forecast "....significant amount" ?

From: Tom Priddy
We probably over-user the word "significant"...in fact, you won't find it in the A COMPREHENSIVE GLOSSARY OF WEATHER TERMS FOR STORM SPOTTERS ...the Glossary of Winter Weather Terms or The Glossary of Meteorology. So the question is....when is a winter storm not significant? I'm on thin ice here...but the locations that stay in the warmer sector of the storm longer that only get liquid precip would be one possiblility. In this winter storm...eastern Kentucky had mostly rain...but Shelby co. and west had "significant" snowfall. Many locations along the Ohio River received near-record level snow....and that was significant.

I know there is a 24 hour map at /ldm-images/24_rain.gif but it covers the whole country and would not be precise for any given county. The NWS storm total precip radar summary at http://www.crh.noaa.gov/radar/latest/DS.80stp/si.klvx.shtml seems to reset to zero when the rain stops, so one cannot get useful information from that unless the precipitation event is still going on.

From: Tom

Matt.....excellent question. I don't have a good guess! The latest long-range guidance doesn't tell us when that will happen.

As we move into Nov.....above normal temperatures and precip will dominate our weather. But...the 30-day calls for below normal temps and precip. If you remember last Nov/Dec it was one of the coldest Nov./DEc on record. However...the winter months are to experience more typical weather this winter.

Thought I'd try it one more time today and was able to monky around until I landed here. Liked the old interface much better but I'll take what I can get. Please don't ever wipe Jefferson County off your Ag weather map!

Thanks for you comments, Jeanne. The Jeff. Co ag. weather product continues to be available.... not sure what the problem is. I just looked at it and it's better than ever with the new precision ag./lawn/garden forecast for your county. We upgraded all the co. ag. weather products about a year ago.

Comments: I checked out the county weather for Marion county this morning. (2-23-03) We awoke to a surprise snow storm that gave us 4 in of snow and ice. Your weather page for our county said it was in the mid 90's today with a heat index in the 100's! Who is in charge up there? Does anyone edit these pages for accuracy? This type of weather reporting negates your valididty as a source for information.

From: Tom Priddy

I'm sorry Amanda but you are using an old bookmark-url for the Marion Co. KY weather pages. I just checked our Marion Co. stuff and it's fine...no temps in the 90's. In fact...my staff and I are pretty proud of the all the info in the Marion Co. KY page....including the new precision ag. forecast which is at the "cutting-edge" in ag. weather services.

Try this url:

Or...go the our main page (listed below) and reset all of your old bookmarks.


Quite honestly....I'm ready for some temps in the 90's. After 7 long days... we just got our power back on! Good luck!

Comments: Tom,
I apologize and I do enjoy what you guys do for us. I probably visit your site more than most people would ever visit any site. I watch the weather closely everyday and I feel I can almost forecast the weather myself. You may hear this all the time from people. I'm may be wrong but the unpredictability of weather is what keeps me watching it and studying it. I really enjoy meteorology and I can see patterns. And yes, my one course has made me into an armchair expert! haha! Sorry again. Life is slow in the country. In all seriousness, if that's possible, I've been monitoring weather patterns and studying weather as a hobby for many years. I'm fascinated by meterology and have been able to forecast weather fairly accurately from looking at all the various satellites, ocean patterns, surface temps, and a bunch of other stuff. You guys do a good job and I'm glad you do it, so don't take me too serious about my criticism. I do appreciate your valuable forecasts. Have a nice day!

From: Tom Priddy

Thanks for your comments. We too in the Ag. Weather Center don't have a
clue what's causing the frost/ice to form as in the picture. The photo was
taken last spring....in Madison Co. One possibility.....(really reaching here!)
is that low-level moisture from rainfall the day before added to the accumulation
or deposition....such as in hoarfrost. Hoarfrost is more fluffy and feathery than rime,
which in turn is lighter than glaze.  See white frost....crystalline frost, amorphous frost.
The deposition of hoarfrost is similar to the process by which dew is formed, except
that the temperature of the frosted objected must be below freezing. It forms when
air with a dew point below freezing is brought to saturation by cooling.

Comments: Whatever happened to the "weather by county"??? It was so easy to get to. I found the "graphic region forecast" which says western Ky has a 60% chance of rain for today, Aug. 15. However, I scrolled on down the main homepage and found a text forecast that says western Ky has a 30% chance of rain for today, Aug. 15. Which one is the most accurate??????

From: Tom Priddy

Michael.....I just checked those products and they are all saying 30%. I think the problem has to do with us not having a time stamp on the new graphic ag. weather stuff...which we will add today. The new graphic ag weather outlook by region is updated at 8:30 am and again at 12:30 (noon). It is based on 3 NWS weather models: the eta, the ngm and the new avn mav model.....so it's the best info available. However, on down the main page ...the area weather forecast is for a central point in the area....but it should still jive with the model output. Since it isn't updated until 8:30 this morning...I suspect that you have a bookmark on that product and check it before 8:30 am. Once we put a time stamp on the product....always .....ALWAYS.....use the most current forecast. It's going to be more accuracte.

Concerning the weather by county......I suspect your bookmark is messed up for the county stuff. I would suggest you go back to our front page...to the left hand side.....select you county and add a new bookmark for your county. It's still there.

Hope this helps./ktp

Your dew point forecasts are very useful in this regard, but I have noticesd times when there is atmospheric haze present even when the dew point is well below the ambient air temperature. Where can I get forecasts of haze due to liquid water contest? I am interested in any values above 0.05 g/m^3. Thank you in advance.

From: Tom Priddy

Bernie...I would suggest that you start looking at our upper level moisture maps. The dewpoint maps/forecasts you've been using are good for indications of the amount of surface moisture....but you need to also utilize the relative humidity maps for the upper levels. The forecasts maps are for 700 mb but we integrate the moisture from 850 mb to 500 mb. Combined with the surface dewpoint maps (both current and forecast maps) will give you a much better handle on atmospherics. Good luck!

Comments: This website is surely a excellent and useful one! I often visit it and use some data. Can you tell me the meteorologic data, especially the precipitation date come from which weather station? which gauge? Why they are different from the data of NCDC?

Thanks for your comments. We use many weather stations...some of which are archived by NCDC. The NWS stations send our weather obs. from their offices several times daily....the 24 hour max/min temps and rainfall are based on midnight to midnight period and are archived by NCDC. But the Ag. Weather stations in Kentucky are based on 7 pm to 7 pm. Plus the NWS offices send to us their data also based on 7 pm to 7 pm. That's what we archive to run our insect and crop models here at UK. Also we have a school network in Kentucky that sends us data every 30 minutes.

Comments: I have to say that I'm not really happy with the changes that have been made to the page over the past few months. Your page used to be fairly organized and professional looking. It was simple, informative, and to the point. Now, it appears very cluttered. The use of "Comic Sans MS" font for the forecast information is particularly annoying and not really appropriate unless you're designing a child's site. Please consider changing this back to a more subdued font. The backgrounds have improved over when they were the tornado photograph (impressive picture, though it made the forecasts impossible to read), but I still find the "white clouds in the sky" background to be quite distracting. A plain-color background would be fine. I'm not here to look at the art, I'm here to catch up on the forecast. I hope you'll consider my suggestions. Aside from the increased content, which is great, I liked the page a lot better as it was before. Ron

Thanks for your comments. In fact...we have made additional changes that should make things fasters and easier to read. No more comic Sans MS. ;>)

Comments: I was hoping that you could possibly assist me. I live in the new Beaumont section of Lexington and the neighborhood is currently having "discussions" with the developer regarding water drainage. Recently terms such as "2 year rain", "5 year rain" and "10 year rain" have been used in our meetings. I am unable to get a definition of these terms. I am also unable to quantify how much precipitation would qualify for a 2, 5 or 10 year storm. Can you help? Many thanks for your time.

From: Tom Priddy

Chris.....for a 6, 12 , 24 hour and 7 day period, I've included the rainfall amounts expected for a 2, 5, 10, 50 and 100 year storms for Fayette Co., KY:

Time Period....2 yr......5 yr..........10 yr......50 yr........100 yr*
6 hr pd.........2.2"......2.8"..........3.2".......4.1"..........4.4"
12 hr...........2.7"......3.3"..........3.8........4.7...........5.3"
24 hr...........3.1"......3.8"..........4.3".......5.5"..........6.1"

According to the Glossary of Meteorology....the above info is called "return period"
or "recurrence interval." One way to think of these numbers, used in fregquency
analysis, as a measure of the average time interval between the occurrence of a given
quantity of rainfall and that of an equal or greater quantity. These values are used by
engineers and hydrologists concerning design of drainage basins and runoff.

So...in a 6 hour period.....what's the worst case senario rainfall event for a 100 year
storm in Fayette County?......4.4 inches.
But for a 24 hour period....that jumps to 6.1 inches for a 100 year storm.
Does this help???

This is the latest I have available.....I'm not sure if these numbers have been revised since 1979.

Comments: Last fall and winter all forcasts called for drought conditions throughout IL and IN this summer; now we have been experiencing flood conditions. Why the disparity in the forcasts?

From: Tom Priddy
The reason for the wide range in forecast is La Nina's impact differs for various sections of the U.S. AND weak La Nina's vs strong La Nina's. Strong La Nina's give the Ohio Valley dry/hot weather. Weak La Nina's tend to give the Ohio Valley cooler/wet weather. But the dividing line between what is weak and strong is not clear. More on this subject is at: http://www.ogp.noaa.gov/enso/

The UKAWC archives 29 stations in and around Kentucky into databases. You can access that data back to 1978 at: /cgi-bin/ky_clim_data_www.pl

Comments: On the 5 day precipitation forecast. I don't understand how the first, second, and third day forecasts can, for example, show rainfall predictions for a given area for, say , a total of three quarters of an inch, while the total rain forecast for the five day period shows only , say, a tenth to a quarter of an inch. I'm I misinterpreting the five day forecast? I've been assuming that the five day forecast is a total of the expected rainfall over the five day period, and that the day one, two, and three expected rainfall amounts should never exceed this five day value--but it appears that it often does. I need some clarification.

Check the time stamps of each maps. They should come close to adding up...but the 5-day maps is not updated until mid-afternoon....and the daily maps are updated in the early morning hours./ktp

Comments: I am looking for the legal definition of a "drought" and whatever information I can find as to when the drought "started" last year in Lexington and when, if ever, it was over. Thank you very much. I had some property damage and my insurance company is not willing to pay, but I believe I am insured for natural disasters and surely a drought falls into that catagory. Thanks.

Hydrologic drought is considered the long-term moisture...like the "drinking water" drought. Agricultural drought is the short-term moisture for crop/livestock./ktp

Comments: Thanks for developing this site. I will be using it every day with the pecan leaf scab model that I am using. I am a member of the OPGA and use Dr. Broembsen's pecan scab spray schedule. Is it possible to include a four or five day wind prediction into the program It would help in managing the the spray schedule. I live less than one mile from the national weather station at Paducah Ky. thanks again Roby Kight

Comments: You guys (and/or gals) do a great job of forcasting Greenbrier County, WV. Most of the time, you are closer in forcasting than the local weather forcasters. Keep up the great work!

Comments: Thanks for this site - I visit it every day for info on my county's weather forcast. Wind direction and speed have become very important in our farming operation due to drift considerations. Is it possible to post a 5-day forcast of wind speed and direction? It would help us plan when to burn down a certain field, etc.

Comments: Is it possible for the website to include grape vine leaf wetness duration-county specific? The emerging grape growing industry in Kentucky could use this data for IPM disease control. I realize that this data has to be site specific but growers could use the county data as a guide.
