.Forecast Update...
Issued at 607 PM EST Sat Feb 17 2018

Several reports of 1 to 2 mile visibilities have been observed 
across southern Indiana, Illinois, and western Kentucky. Starting to 
see some sites along and north of the Ohio River drop under 3 miles, 
so have thrown in some patchy fog everywhere this evening until the 
drier air over eastern MO reaches us. 

With the drier air in place, we should see a break from the fog 
during the overnight hours. However, the fog may redevelop early 
tomorrow morning as skies clear and temperatures drop under 
radiational cooling. It looks like temperatures should cool enough 
to where T/Td spreads would support fog development. With light to 
calm winds anticipated tomorrow morning as well as high soil 
moisture from recent precipitation, have gone ahead and put in 
patchy fog for the whole CWA starting after 09z.

&&

.Short Term...(Today through Monday)
Issued at 320 PM EST Sat Feb 17 2018

Snow has ended across southern Indiana, and rain is quickly winding 
down along and west of I-65 in central Kentucky. Temperatures remain 
borderline in the Bluegrass region north of Lexington. Additional 
light snow will continue through 22z from Franklin County over to 
Nicholas County. These areas have seen a dusting thus far and 
wouldn't expect more than that. Could have a few slick spots to 
watch out for through this evening in that area. Back across 
southern Indiana, roads will likely remain slushy in areas that got 
heavier snow today. Moderate rain continues in the Lake Cumberland 
region, but that should be winding down around 22z as well. The 
Clinton County KY Mesonet site has recorded around 3/4 of an inch of 
rain thus far. 

A secondary impulse dropping southeast from Illinois could result in 
some drizzle this evening north of I-64. Otherwise, high pressure 
and dry air punching in from the west will result in improving 
conditions after midnight. As skies gradually scatter out from west 
to east early Sunday, patchy fog will likely develop. And further 
east in the Bluegrass region, low clouds may hold in long enough 
Sunday morning to prevent fog formation. 

Sunday looks relatively nice as high pressure shifts east of the 
area. Expect partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the 50s.

.Long Term...(Monday night through Saturday)
Issued at 313 PM EST Sat Feb 17 2018

...Increasing Potential For River Flooding Next Week...

Highly anomalous weather pattern is still poised to set up across 
the lower Ohio Valley next week bringing threats for heavy rain, 
river flooding, and potentially record warm temperatures to parts of 
Kentucky and southern Indiana. 

The first wave of precipitation will pass by Sunday night into 
Monday in association with a warm front. We should see temperatures 
rising Sunday night into Monday morning in response to the warm 
front, and by Monday afternoon, the front should clear the CWA. The 
precipitation will taper off by Monday afternoon, and afternoon 
highs will easily climb into the low to mid 70s. Overnight lows 
Monday will remain warm, only dropping into the low to mid 60s.

After the precipitation ends Monday, it looks like most of central 
Kentucky will see a break from the rain through at least Tuesday 
evening. The latest 12z model guidance is in pretty good agreement 
of keeping moderate to heavy rain just west of the CWA near a cold 
front, with only lighter showers clipping parts of southern Indiana 
Tuesday. Should this solution end up verifying, high temperatures 
Tuesday could end up being VERY warm by February standards. GFS MOS 
is currently predicting 82 for Louisville, 83 for Lexington, and 82 
for Bowling Green. Should these high temperatures occur, they would 
break the all time record highs for the month of February in 
Louisville and Lexington, and come close to tying for Bowling Green. 
Given how wet and moist it has been in the lower Ohio Valley, there 
are some doubts we could reach temperatures this high as 
evapotranspiration effects may limit temperatures from climbing too 
high. Still, have gone ahead and bumped up temperatures a bit, with 
several areas forecast to reach the 80 degree mark.

By Wednesday, the models show the front moving through Kentucky 
bringing widespread rain and possibly a few thunderstorms to the 
area. Total rainfall amounts forecast for Monday through Wednesday 
continue to come in lower across central Kentucky with totals around 
1  to 1.5 inches. Across southern Indiana, especially southwest 
Indiana, totals in excess of two inches are possible. Even though 
the forecast rainfall has dropped some over the past couple of days, 
it will still lead to further rises on small river basins, streams, 
and creeks and extend the rises on the main stem of the Ohio River 
which is forecast to rise into minor flood stage next week.

More rainfall could fall Thursday into next weekend as models show 
another frontal boundary stalling near the region. Still lots of 
time to hone in on where the heaviest axis of rain will fall, but 
the overall forecast regarding flooding is not very optimistic.

&&

.Aviation...(06Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 1233 AM EST Sun Feb 18 2018

Stratus has been stubbornly redeveloping over the lower Wabash 
Valley over the past few hours, but the larger area of general 
cloudiness is still expected to gradually push off to the east over 
the next several hours. Dry air associated with high pressure 
centered near KPOF at 05Z will help to stave off widespread dense 
fog formation. However, shallow ground fog will still be a 
possibility, especially at HNB and somewhat at BWG, in the few hours 
either side of dawn. Will need to keep an eye out for this and 
possible AMDs to the TAFs.

During the daylight hours today that surface high will proceed from 
Kentucky to the Delmarva Peninsula, providing the TAF sites with VFR 
conditions and southeast breezes near 10 knots.

Tonight scattered warm advection showers are expected to develop, 
primarily after this TAF period.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
National Weather Service Jackson KY
1253 AM EST Sun Feb 18 2018

.UPDATE...
Issued at 1253 AM EST SUN FEB 18 2018

The forecast is on track tonight. The latest obs were ingested
into the hourly forecast grids to establish new trends. No update
is planned at this time.

UPDATE Issued at 1126 PM EST SAT FEB 17 2018

Patchy drizzle will continue across the area over the next few
hours, as winds veer around to the west northwest. Clearing has
taken place across western Kentucky, and have freshened up the sky
cover trends through dawn. Still think that the more upslope-like
flow across our area should keep the better clearing from working
in until a bit later. Updates have been sent. 

UPDATE Issued at 745 PM EST SAT FEB 17 2018

Steady rain has exited off to the east, with some light returns
working in from the Bluegrass, as a short wave trough moves east
across the Ohio Valley. Have gone ahead and dropped the Flood 
Watch early. Expect mostly cloudy skies to remain in place, with
some drizzle across the area through around midnight, before
gradually diminishing. Freshened up the hourly temperatures and
dew points, which should steadily cool off through the night. Lows
in the low to mid 30s look on target. Updates have been sent. 

&&

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Sunday night)
Issued at 415 PM EST SAT FEB 17 2018

An area of moderate to heavy rain continues to move across the
area although the back edge of the rain is now working in from
central KY and TN in advance of a shortwave trough. Some snow or
mixed rain and snow has been falling across far northern Fleming
County where reports of amounts approaching an inch were received.
As noted the precipitation has already tapered off over much of
central KY with rain rates near the TN and VA borders having
decreased over the past hour as well. 

The area of rain should affect the VA border counties for about
another two hours and should be over around 7 PM with rain and 
any mixed precipitation tapering off and ending over far western 
and northwestern locations over the next hour or so as the
shortwave trough moves east and deeper moisture and lift begin to
depart. Low level moisture will linger a bit longer well into the
night with low clouds and stratus build down fog anticipated in
the evening, followed by gradual clearing from west to east late
tonight and into the day on Sunday. Diurnal ranges will be limited
tonight with low dewpoint depressions and clouds lingering even 
as sfc high pressure begins to build in. Lows should be at or jut 
above the freezing mark for most locations.

Along with sfc high pressure move east across the OH Valley mid
level height rises are expected in the wake of the shortwave
trough late tonight and into the day on Sunday. The airmass will
dry out considerably as well. Sunshine should be abundant for 
most of the day, with temperatures warming up to above normal 
levels. 

Another shortwave trough will begin to approach late in the period
with a warm front lifting north toward the area on Sunday night.
Initially though, there should be a relative lack of clouds in 
the evening which should support min T for many central and 
eastern valley locations near midnight. These locations will 
likely experience min T for Sunday night near 40 if the upper and 
perhaps mid 30s. At this point did not go quite as low as coop mos
guidance form the GFS might suggest which was low to mid 30s for 
these normally colder valley locations, opting to trend on the 
order of 6 to 8 degrees below Superblend for these normally colder
locations. Isentropic lift in advance of the warm front and a 
return of deeper moisture for the Gulf Coast states should be 
sufficient for another round of showers to encroach on the area 
after midnight on Sunday night. 

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 324 PM EST SAT FEB 17 2018

A warm front will lift north at the start of the period with some
showers ongoing to start the day Monday. However, as the ridge
over the eastern CONUS builds, heights will shoot upwards early in
the week. With downslope flow and very anomalous high heights 
over the area on Tuesday, we could be looking at easily breaking 
some record highs and perhaps all time February record highs. The 
February record highs sit at 79 for Jackson and 81 at London. We 
have a pretty good chance to break that at Jackson, but London may
be closer. 

A slow moving front will eventually push east by midweek, with
rain chances spreading back into the area. Instability doesn't
look fantastic, but shear is great. Thus, we could see a potential
for a few strong storms come Wednesday and Wednesday night,
especially if the instability trends upwards. This will be
something to monitor over the next several days, especially with
the record warmth already in place across the region. Still some
question how long the frontal zone may linger over the area late
next week, so will maintain some rain chances through the end of
the week and into next weekend. With ground already very 
saturated with near record February rainfall and rivers running 
high into early next week, more flooding concerns may return by 
mid to late next week. Looks like the mild weather will continue 
through the remainder of the extended as well. 

&&

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Sunday night)
ISSUED AT 1253 AM EST SUN FEB 18 2018

Expect IFR or lower clouds, with some very light rain/drizzle 
across the area through 9 or 10z. Ceilings should then lift to 
MVFR, before scattering out after 12z, as high pressure builds in
across the region. Winds will veer to the west at 5 to 10 kts 
tonight, before diminishing and becoming more variable into 
Sunday.

.SHORT TERM...(Tonight through Monday night)
Issued at 245 PM CST Sat Feb 17 2018

Not a whole lot of impact weather to talk about in the short term.
With the exit of today's system, skies will try to clear out
slowly from west to east overnight as a surface high pushes east
into the mid MS River Valley. It looks as though models are once
again trying to clear skies too quickly though based on latest
satellite trends, so delayed it a bit. If skies do actually clear
as forecast, there would be a window for some fog development
later tonight as winds go nearly calm over a wet ground. However,
forecast soundings are pretty dry right off the surface, which
could mitigate the fog threat. Will need to monitor. If fog were
to develop, would need to keep in mind that surface temps will be
near or below freezing in many locations by morning.

High pressure scoots rapidly east Sunday allowing winds to become
more southerly. With the help of sunshine, this should help
temps warm into the 50s. South to southwesterly flow will increase
at all levels Sunday night into Monday. This could aid in
supporting scattered warm advection showers later Sunday night 
into Monday. Should not much of an impact though. The bigger story
will be the rise in temps later Sunday night through Monday. 
Despite possible considerable cloud cover much of the day, temps 
will likely make it to near or above 70 again over a good portion
of the region. In fact, some record highs across the region may 
fall or be challenged. Lows will not fall off too much Monday 
night, and will likely shatter all record high minimum 
temperatures for the night across the region. 

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Saturday)
Issued at 245 PM CST Sat Feb 17 2018

The extended period forecast looks mostly wet for the PAH forecast 
area under a persistent western trof/eastern ridge longwave 
mid/upper level flow pattern.

Initially, the medium range models indicate that a subtropical ridge 
centered just east of the Atlantic seaboard will be strong enough to 
hold off widespread pcpn during the day Tue. It should be breezy 
and abnormally warm again. In fact, afternoon temps will likely 
challenge record highs in the mid 70s.

Shortwave energy moving through the western trof will continue to
induce waves of low pressure along a surface cold front, and by 
Tue night, the front, extending from the Gulf Coast all the way to
the Canadian maritimes, is progged to head southeast Tue night, 
resulting in high PoPs and QPF for our region. There may be enough
instability for thunderstorms to develop Tue night. Behind the 
front will be a substantially cooler airmass, causing a 30-35 
degree drop in high temps between Tue and Wed. 

By Wed, differences in the smaller details of the models begin to 
differ, but model consensus suggested that there may be a temporary 
lull in the pcpn Wed, with some kind of resurgence possible with the 
front attempting to move back northwest as a warm front Wed night, 
as yet another bundle of energy ejects out of the southwestern 
CONUS. Still, there may be enough cold air moving in aloft Wed night 
to generate a limited amount of snowfall or even a wintry mix. 

The weather picture gets murkier toward days 6/7, but Fri and Sat 
look wet at this time as the Gulf should remain wide open for a 
moisture source. We should remain in the warm sector toward this 
time period, providing well-above-average temps.

.AVIATION...
Issued at 1123 PM CST Sat Feb 17 2018

Skies have cleared and now the fog is setting in, at least at KCGI
and partly at KPAH. KEVV and KOWB are still P6SM but will lower
them through the night. Otherwise, expect dense fog to be the main
problem overnight through early Sunday morning as clear skies and
calm winds continue. Expect the fog to lift by 15Z or so. Winds 
will pick up out of the southeast Sunday morning and pick up 
during the afternoon and then become more southerly during the 
latter 6 hours of the period. Lower level moisture will also creep
back into the area during that time as well.
