Short term (this evening through Saturday night)
issued at 335 pm est Fri nov 16 2018
current surface analysis shows surface high pressure moving
north over the tennessee valley into the lower ohio valley. This has
lead to drier conditions and clearing skies for most of eastern
kentucky. Some low clouds have moved into the northern bluegrass,
due to a surface low pressure system over the great lakes region.

These lower clouds will slowly move south later this evening and
linger for areas north of the mountain parkway until midday tomorrow
as the system currently over the great lakes moves eastward. A weak
short wave will move over the area late Saturday, but no
precipitation is expected from this. As such, the short term
period will be fairly quiet as zonal flow aloft coupled with
surface high pressure keeps eastern kentucky dry through the early
morning hours Sunday.

Another cold night will be on tap for tonight, with areas in the
west dropping below freezing. Some patchy fog is expected towards
dawn, but will dissipate with the sunrise. High temperatures
tomorrow will be warmer than past days, with highs generally in the
low to upper 50s. Saturday night will feature a few areas of
patchy fog early as well as low temperatures ranging from the mid
to upper 30s.

Long term (Sunday through Friday)
issued at 335 pm est Fri nov 16 2018
models are in fairly good agreement with large scale features
differing mainly with a southern stream short wave impulse moving
out of the southwest and into the deep south at the end of the
extended. The only other feature of interest will be shortwave
energy rounding the base of a mean eastern CONUS trough relatively
early in the period. Closer to the surface a rather diffuse frontal
zone will settle down across the area by late Sunday or Sunday
night. Upper level short wave shears out providing little support to
push this boundary completely through the region in proper fashion.

But a second, stronger impulse rounding the base of the mean eastern
conus trough will be enough to drive this frontal zone through and
out of the area by Tuesday. Weather appears relatively quiet
thereafter. At this time model consensus suggest that southern
stream energy will remain too far south of our area to affect our
sensible weather in any meaningful way at the end of the period. But
there is less agreement and consistency in the solutions with this
activity. For now went with trends and remained dry for the end of
the extended.

Sensible weather features normal to below normal temps through the
period. Daily highs will run in the upper 40s to mid 50s, with
normals being in the mid 50s. Morning lows will drop into the upper
20s to mid 30s, with norms being mid 30s. Overall our weather
appears to be trending increasingly fair with time. We may be in for
an extended period of dry weather (4-6 days) after the threat of
rain across the area ends Monday night or early Tuesday. Highest
pops, or most likely time frame for precipitation will come Monday,
though patchy light rain or possibly patchy drizzle may linger into
early Tuesday morning. Can not totally rule out a snow flake or two
before precipitation ends, particularly in the higher elevations to
our southeast. Thanksgiving looks quite nice and pleasant for the
entire area and much of the region. High pressure is expected to
provide sunny to mostly sunny skies and seasonably warm
temperatures, generally in the low to mid 50s.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Saturday afternoon)
issued at 114 pm est Fri nov 16 2018
with surface high pressure building into the region this
afternoon, drier conditions as well as mostly clear skies were
observed at TAF issuance. However, lower clouds have begun to move
into the northern bluegrass. These clouds are expected to
progress further south, pushing CIGS to MVFR for sym and sjs. Jkl
cigs will lower as well, but will remainVFR. Fog also is possible
in the west tomorrow morning. This will lead to lower
visibilities for sme and sym, but any fog will dissipate around
14z.VFR conditions will return for mid-morning and persist
through the remainder of the TAF period. Westerly winds will range
from 5 to 12 knots through this afternoon, with some wind gusts
in the bluegrass area. Winds will then decrease into the evening,
with light winds becoming southerly through the rest of the taf
period.

Jkl watches warnings advisories None.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
