...Hot And Mostly Dry Today; Cooler This Weekend...

Hot and dry weather can be expected again today, though a change in the weather is expected late Friday into Saturday morning as a cold front moves into the region. Showers and storms will be possible ahead of this front, and unsettled weather could continue into the weekend.

A few strong to severe storms will be possible Friday afternoon and evening, with locally gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and lightning being the main threats.

Additional rounds of thunderstorms through Wednesday will produce 2 to 4 inches of total rainfall, with locally higher amounts possible. Localized flooding is likely where heavier and/or repeated rainfall occurs.

...Updated Aviation Discussion...

.Short Term...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 254 AM EDT Thu Sep 20 2018

Quiet and calm weather ongoing this morning thanks to a large upper 
level ridge currently over the TN Valley. GOES-16 IR products show 
mostly clear skies across the region, and very pronounced 
valley/river fog just to our east in the Appalachians. Winds have 
generally been light to calm so far this morning, so can't rule out 
some patchy ground fog developing in the usual fog-prone areas later 
this morning before sunrise. Any fog that does form should burn off 
quickly after sunrise. 

Another hot and mostly sunny day will be on tap, with temperatures 
generally reaching the upper 80s to low 90s. When combined with 
dewpoints in the upper 60s to low 70s, heat indices west of I-65 
could approach 100 degrees for a few hours this afternoon. Doesn't 
look like we'll get much relief from the heat in the form of rain, 
as warm air aloft due to the presence of the upper level ridge will 
keep most convection suppressed. A few high-res models hint at some 
very isolated storms developing late this afternoon north of I-64, 
but coverage of said showers looks to be too low to include in grids 
at this time.

Another warm, muggy night will be in store tonight. Winds will pick 
up some overnight as a weak LLJ develops and the pressure gradient 
tightens in response to a deepening low near the Great Lakes region.

.Long Term...(Friday through Wednesday)
Issued at 255 AM EDT Thu Sep 20 2018

Vigorous storm system moving across the northern Great Lakes into 
Ontario on Friday will drive a cold front SE into the Ohio Valley. 
We'll have plenty of instability ahead of the front to support 
strong updrafts. Stronger deep-layer shear to organize a potential 
squall line will remain to our north and northeast, but not out of 
the question that we could catch the tail end of the line. Marginal 
SVR risk for southern Indiana and north-central Kentucky looks to be 
reasonable, given the potential for a line or pulse threat. That 
could increase if the shear were to extend farther SW. 

Cold front becomes oriented parallel to the upper flow on Friday 
night, and a weak wave ejecting out of the southern Plains will 
support renewed precip chances on Saturday, especially across 
southern Kentucky. To the north of that precip shield, high pressure 
over the Great Lakes will bring cool and cloudy conditions with 
temps more typical of October. 

Sunday forecast will be largely dependent on just where the stalled 
front remains hung up under flat upper flow. Additional waves of 
showers and storms along the front will keep at least south-central 
Kentucky unsettled, and perhaps even more of the area if the ECMWF 
is correct in its frontal position, which is farther north than the 
GFS. That front will lift north on Sun night as upper flow backs SW 
in response to downstream ridging, with broad and moist southerly 
flow setting up on Monday. GFS and ECMWF paint a lot of QPF, but 
this is often overdone in the warm sector. 

Unsettled weather continues Tue-Wed as a longwave upper trof pushes 
a cold front at least well into the Ohio Valley, if not all the way 
through. Too early to get too detailed with severe potential, but 
the system looks dynamic enough to support at least some stronger 
storms. Expect above normal temps and borderline summertime humidity 
through the first half of next week, with clouds and precip limiting 
diurnal ranges. 

Widespread QPF totals over the period will likely average 2-3 
inches. However, depending on the placement of any heavier and/or 
repeated rainfall, higher amounts will likely result in flooding 
along some streams.

&&

.Aviation...(12Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 642 AM EDT Thu Sep 20 2018

Some isolated patchy ground fog has developed this morning across 
the region, but should quickly burn off after sunrise. VFR 
conditions are then expected for the rest of the forecast period. A 
weak (~30kt) LLJ near 2kft is forecast to develop after midnight, 
but LLWS looks to be weak enough to not need mention in TAFs at this 
time.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION

1152 AM EDT Thu Sep 20 2018

.UPDATE...
Issued at 1152 AM EDT THU SEP 20 2018

Forecast is on track, and no changes were made other than to blend
in the late morning obs.

UPDATE Issued at 902 AM EDT THU SEP 20 2018

Outside of fog, skies are generally clear to start the day. Have 
updated to lower sky cover this morning. 

UPDATE Issued at 700 AM EDT THU SEP 20 2018

The forecast remains on track so far this morning. Areas of dense
valley fog will persist through around 8 am. The fog should lift
and dissipate between 8 and 9 am for most locations, and between 9
and 10 am where the densest fog formed overnight. The latest obs
were used to freshen up the hourly forecast grids and establish
new trends.

&&

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Friday)
Issued at 302 AM EDT THU SEP 20 2018

A ridge of high pressure, both at the surface and aloft, will
dominate the weather of eastern Kentucky. This feature will bring
another couple of days of warmer than normal weather to the area 
to finish out the week. In fact, highs will rise well into the 80s
today and tomorrow, with a few spots maybe even reaching or 
slightly exceeding 90 degrees today. An approaching cold front 
will bring showers and a few storms back to eastern Kentucky by 
Friday afternoon. Winds should be generally light and variable
with late night and early morning valley fog on tap yet again.

.LONG TERM...(Friday night through Wednesday)
Issued at 339 AM EDT THU SEP 20 2018

The models are in good agreement with a more zonal-like pattern
amplifying by next week. A progressive short wave trough will
start out cruising from the Great Lakes to New England. This will
send a cold front southeast across the Ohio and Tennessee 
valleys, where it will stall out for the weekend, bringing a
period of unsettled weather to the region.

By early and especially the middle of next week, a deep trough
will take shape across the middle of the CONUS, allowing a 
stronger cold front to move east across the Mississippi Valley by
Wednesday.

PoPs will be maintained through the entire forecast period across
eastern Kentucky. Given the uncertainty of the details regarding 
frontal timing and location, as well as the eventual evolution of
the deeper trough by next week, stuck very close to the blended
guidance. This generally resulted in good to likely chance PoPs at
times from Friday night through Sunday, with lesser chances 
on Monday. PoPs then increase once again by Tuesday and Wednesday.

Temperatures will generally average below normal through the
period.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Friday morning)
ISSUED AT 700 AM EDT THU SEP 20 2018

Dense valley that formed overnight will persist through around 8
am before dissipating between 8 and 9 am this morning. Once the
fog is gone we can expect light and variable winds and SCT low
level clouds across the area from late this morning through late
this afternoon. Only LOZ and SME were reporting fog at the time of
this discussion. Another round of valley fog is expected late 
tonight into early Friday morning.

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Saturday night)
Issued at 251 AM CDT Thu Sep 20 2018

Main weather story for today lies with the record, or near record
heat, as high pressure hangs on along the East Coast for one more
day. Most locations will top out in the the lower and mid 90s, 
and heat indices will push the century mark this afternoon. 

Shower/scattered thunderstorm chances will increase on Friday as a
cold front drops southeast from the Midwest and Plains. The
highest chances for a few strong storms will come Friday afternoon
into the early evening when diurnal heating will be maximized. The
main limiting factor for an organized severe threat will be a lack
of strong winds/shear aloft as a weak H50 trof approaches the
region from the west. 

The front will likely stall out just to our south Friday 
night/Saturday. However, overrunning precip behind the front will 
keep things rather damp over much of the region, esp along our 
southern tier of counties closest to the stalled out surface 
boundary. Clouds/precip and a brisk northerly wind will help keep 
temperatures well below normal Saturday. Some locations will 
likely struggle to top 70 degrees. Lows Saturday night will
generally run in the mid 50s to near 60.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday through Wednesday)
Issued at 251 AM CDT Thu Sep 20 2018

Average confidence in the extended at best.

It looks to be a wet and unsettled weather pattern setting up for 
the extended. First models begin to differ on the timing of the 
first cold front passage through the area. The Canadian and ECMWF 
both try to stall the cold front over the region keeping rain over 
the area. In contrast the GFS pushes the cold front south of the 
region allowing for at least part of the area dry starting Sunday. 
The ECMWF and Canadian both lift the cold front back north 
returning us to much warmer temperatures With a 5 to 10 degree 
spread in the MOS output. Most of the models do lift the cold 
front back north as warm front but the ECMWF is the most 
aggressive with this scenario and has the most residence time over
our area. Finally the models bring another cold front through or 
into the region by mid week. The GFS was a bit faster than the 
rest but it also brings in rain ahead of the warm front with 
mainly waa advection type precipitation. The MEX mos is much again
much cooler and much longer with the cooler temps but they do 
start to come together a little better toward the end of the 
forecast or mid week next week. The second cold front mid week the
models are in good agreement on pushing them through the area 
cooling the area down considerably. This would be late but 
seasonably reasonable. We are mostly stable Sunday but there is 
some elevated instability even though K index values dont exceed 
30...will leave at least a slight chance in for then since LI's do
reach a negative one in the afternoon. After that sufficient 
instability will be in place so thunder will be included.
