AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION . UPDATED National Weather Service Jackson KY 820 PM EDT Thu Apr 22 2021

UPDATE. Issued at 740 PM EDT THU APR 22 2021

23z sfc analysis shows high pressure building into Kentucky. This is helping to clear the skies and settle the winds in conjunction with nightfall. These conditions will be good for radiational cooling tonight and again result in some sub-freezing lows by Friday morning along with widespread frost. Currently temperatures vary from the mid 40s in the valleys to the low 50s on the ridges and in the south. Meanwhile, dewpoints are generally in the mid to upper 20s amid diminishing northwest winds. Have updated the forecast mainly to add in a bit of river valley fog and include the latest obs and trends for the Sky/T/Td grids. These updates have been sent to the NDFD and web servers along with the issuance of a freshened set of zones and SAFs.

SHORT TERM. (This evening through Friday night) Issued at 407 PM EDT THU APR 22 2021

An upper low was tracking from the Northeast Conus and into the Canadian Maritimes this afternoon while an upper level trough trailed south into the Eastern Conus. Meanwhile, a shortwave trough moving through the eastern Conus trough was tracking into the central Appalachians at this time. To the west, a shortwave ridge extended north through the MS Valley region, while a shortwave trough extended through portions of the Plains. Another shortwave trough was working across the southwestern Conus.

Through Friday, the upper level and sfc ridge will work across the region later this evening and into the overnight before moving east on Friday. The upper level flow will become west to southwest on Friday, as the initial shortwave trough in the Plains passes northwest of the area and another shortwave trough nears the Southern Plains. A low pressure system will organize over the Southern Plains Friday into Friday evening with the surface low tracking toward the Arklatex region to end the period. Moisture will begin to increase late tonight and into Friday with a round of mid level clouds is anticipated as an initial disturbance passes. Deeper moisture will arrive late in the period, with chances for showers spreading northeast on Friday night with the best chances of rain early in the long term period.

Tonight, frost is the primary concern along with sub freezing temperatures. Valley locations should reach the upper 20s to around 30 degree range. More western locations will experience more cloud cover late and should remain closer to the freezing mark or higher. Passing mid and high level clouds are anticipated on Friday while southerly to southwest flow will lead to milder temperatures as compared to today. Highs are expected to reach into the 60s.

Temperatures on Friday night will be much milder ahead of the approaching system. There is a window of time between when the mid clouds thin with tomorrows disturbance and ahead of the next system that eastern valley locations should experience temperatures dropping off toward the 40 degree mark.

LONG TERM. (Saturday through Thursday) Issued at 417 PM EDT THU APR 22 2021

Eastern Kentucky begins the period unsettled. An area of low pressure resides across the Mississippi Valley and will push north and east settling across the Ohio Valley by Saturday evening. Arrival time for the precipitation is mostly in tune with guidance suggesting initial showers arriving early Saturday morning versus a late Friday night arrival. Confidence is high Eastern Kentucky will see widespread rain throughout much of Saturday before showers dissipate Saturday night and into Sunday morning. A few lingering showers may be possible along the Virginia border Sunday morning as the low meanders off the coast of the Mid-Atlantic, otherwise gradual clearing will be in line the later half of Sunday. A slight chance of thunder was added Saturday evening and overnight, as a nose of 250-500 J/kg MU CAPE sneaks in just south of the Mountain Parkway. MOS guidance also suggests slight chance thunder/lightning opportunities Saturday night. Following, a broad area of high pressure will encompass the Central CONUS, working eastward early next week.

High pressure is set to dominate much of the Eastern U.S., running from the Great Lakes and down through the Tennessee Valley by Monday evening. Temperatures will also trend warmer, bringing a welcomed change from what we are seeing today. High temps will range from the upper 70s to lower 80s Tuesday and Wednesday with the help of southerly flow, placing highs above the norm for this time of the year. Troughing will develop in behind the Eastern CONUS ridging, bringing unsettled weather mid to late work week with the eastward shift. Long term guidance suggests an area of low pressure developing across the Central Plains and meandering northeast to the Great Lakes by Thursday morning. There is still a bit of uncertainty in regards to timing, QPF, and impacts, but the GFS and ECMWF are better in line with these details. The Canadian has the disturbance arriving later than its counterparts, so have thus stuck with the blended solution for now. Have also added slight chance thunder given the marginal surface based instability near 700 J/kg and effective shear around 30-35 kts.

Overall, a nice soaking will start the long term period with temperatures below average Saturday and Sunday. As high pressure builds into the Ohio Valley and eastward, strong southerly flow will raise highs into the mid 70s Monday and low 80s by Tuesday and Wednesday. We round out the period with another round of rain chances and temperatures near the norms.

AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday evening) ISSUED AT 820 PM EDT THU APR 22 2021

Cumulus clouds will dissipate early this evening as high pressure builds into the state. However, mid and high level clouds will increase from the southwest later tonight. Initial northwest winds of around 10 kts will diminish this evening. They will then increase on Friday out of the south to southwest mainly in the 5 to 10 kts range.
