the forecast largely remains on track. Current temperatures are
in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees. Some showers have persisted
in central kentucky, with a few lighting strikes observed as
well. Updated pops to account for some of this activity moving
into rockcastle county. However, these showers and storms have
been on the downward trend over the last hour. Therefore, this
activity is likely to continue to decrease. Other than this,
ingested the latest observations and blended into the evening
hours. Updates have been sent to ndfd and to the web.

Short term (this evening through Sunday night)
issued at 305 pm edt Sat aug 17 2019
18z sfc analysis shows high pressure holding on over eastern
kentucky keeping the convection away - at least for now. A decent
cu field developed this afternoon for the area but that did little
to slow the temperature rise most places with readings currently
peaking in the mid to upper 80s along with a few 90 degree
reports. Dewpoints, meanwhile, are in the mid 60s most places - a
far cry better than they where the last time it was this warm.

Winds have been rather light today - mainly out of the southwest.

The models are again in pretty good agreement aloft through the
short term portion of the forecast. They all depict moderately
fast flow over the area tilting more southwesterly in the near
term as ridging builds slightly to the southeast. By the end of
the period the flow will be more northwest and divergent coming
from just north of the core southern plains ridge. A couple of
shortwaves will pass by to the north of kentucky during this time
as well, but likely staying far enough away to affect eastern
kentucky much. Given the agreement, have favored the model blend
as represented by the nbm for this time frame.

Sensible weather will feature a very small chance of a
thunderstorm in the northwest parts of the area into the first
part of the evening, but below mention in the weather grids for
now. Then look for clearing skies and quiet conditions tonight
along with some river valley fog developing. Similar conditions
take hold Sunday and Sunday night with temps a notch higher in the
afternoon and slightly milder at night - still with a chance for
valley fog along with some ridge to valley temperature

Again used the nbm as the starting point for all the short term
grids with some adjustments for terrain differences both nights
and a tempering of the highs on Sunday from guidance owing to
some cloud cover. For pops, kept them just below 15% into this
evening - slightly above the guidance - otherwise dry.

Long term (Monday through Saturday)
issued at 240 pm edt Sat aug 17 2019
the extended period looks to be fairly active, as a trough of low
pressure aloft and a slow moving frontal boundary move across the
region. The trough is forecast to move slowly across the great lakes
and ohio valley regions through out the period, while the surface
front is more likely to move slowly across our area from late
Wednesday through the end of the upcoming work week. We will see
lower chances of rain to begin the period, with the highest chances
of rain on tap while the front lingers about the area from late
Wednesday through Thursday. Thunderstorms will be possible each day,
mainly during the afternoon and early evening hours.

Temperatures will run well above normal Monday, Tuesday, and
Wednesday, with highs on those days forecast to reach the upper 80s
or perhaps even 90 for some locations. After that, the weather
should cool off quite a bit, as the front stalls over the area and
cooler air filters in from the north. Widespread cloud cover and
persistent precipitation from mid week onward will also have an
impact on daily temperatures. Nightly lows will range from the upper
60s to slightly over 70 the first few nights, and will cool into the
lower 60s to end the week. Winds should be generally light and out
of the south or southwest to start things off, before shifting to
the west and then north toward the end of the week after the front
drifts south of the area.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Sunday evening)
issued at 740 pm edt Sat aug 17 2019
surface high pressure continues to dominate the region. Some
river valley fog is possible overnight tonight, but confidence is
low whether the TAF sites would be affected. Did not include fog
in the tafs for now. Any fog will dissipate with the sunrise
tomorrow morning. The high pressure will then progress to the
southeast of the commonwealth for tomorrow afternoon, bringing
some increased moisture for the region; however, not expecting any
shower or storm activity tomorrow. Although, some mid-level
cumulus is likely. Southwest winds will generally be light through
the period as well.

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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 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.
