Short Term. (This afternoon through Thursday) Issued at 215 AM EST Wed Dec 11 2019

An upper trough axis will pivot east of central Kentucky this morning. Benign westerly flow aloft gradually decreases in speed today and tonight. An elongated 1033 mb sfc high is centered over Arkansas and the Tennessee Valley this morning. Skies are clear with temperatures in the upper teens to mid 20s. It's cold, but the good news is that winds are light. Still, expect a cold morning with wind chills as low as the mid teens to low 20s.

A largely dry atmosphere will make for sunny skies today. Some scattered clouds around 6 kft look to brush our southern IN counties and perhaps far northern KY counties early this afternoon. But sunshine will be abundant today with highs in the 39-44 degree range. A stronger sfc high will move southeast from OH across WV tonight, resulting in a light southeast wind. Modest WAA in the lower levels will help keep temps from plummeting too much, but lows in the mid 20s will still be common. Low lying areas in southern IN and the Bluegrass region are likely to dip into the lower 20s.

Long Term. (Thursday through Tuesday) Issued at 303 AM EST Wed Dec 11 2019

Dry and cool weather continues into Thursday as the lower Ohio Valley remains in quasi-zonal flow aloft. A quick moving wave will swing into the region early Friday and potentially bring some light precipitation mainly to portions of central and eastern Kentucky. Temperature profiles with the latest 00z data look a bit warmer compared to 24 hours ago, to where now precipitation should be all rain.

From Friday evening into early next week, a "parade" of various troughs and embedded shortwaves within fast moving flow will impact the area with multiple rounds of precipitation. Perhaps the most impactful timeframe during all of this would be Sunday night into early Tuesday. Global models vary considerably on the overall storm track and show anything from wintry weather to cold rains to HSLC QLCS environments. As a result, confidence is low in any one given solution, so will blend model output for this timeframe until better agreement is reached. Cool and dry weather then look to return by the midweek period.

Aviation. (18Z TAF Issuance) Issued at 1205 PM EST Wed Dec 11 2019

VFR through the period. Winds from the SW of 8-12 kts are expected this afternoon, diminishing by 23z this evening. Expect mostly sunny skies today with a few clouds around 6-7 kft at HNB, SDF and LEX. Clear skies expected tonight, with SCT cirrus moving overhead toward tomorrow morning.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
