Short Term. (Today and tonight) Issued at 315 AM EDT Sun Mar 29 2020
Behind the cold front, skies are clearing as surface high pressure moves into the region from the southwest. The winds are going to be the focus in the short term. The cold front, that just passed through the area, is part of a strong stacked low pressure system centered over Wisconsin. Between this low and surface high pressure the pressure gradient tightens and winds respond. The southwest winds will likely reach 25 mph in the northern half of central Kentucky and southern Indiana. Gusts could reach 40 mph in the Bluegrass Region. That could put the affected areas just inside Wind Advisory criteria. These peak winds will likely only last a few hours max. Currently going with a Special Weather Statement that may later turn into an advisory. The southerly winds and clear skies will help to push temperatures into the mid 60s in southern Indiana to near 70 in the Lake Cumberland area.
Tonight, winds will continue to slow as the low pressure system drifts farther northeast and the high advances east into the Mississippi Valley. With a few cirrus overhead, lows Monday morning are expected to drop into the 40s.
Long Term. (Monday through Saturday) Issued at 356 AM EDT Sun Mar 29 2020
A weak ridge of surface high pressure behind the departing storm system . and ahead of the next one . will give us a dry and pleasant day on Monday with partly cloudy skies and highs in the 60s.
Monday night through Tuesday evening surface low pressure will cross the Deep South beneath an upper trough digging slightly from the Plains into the Southeast. This system will bring showers to the region, with the most widespread rains occurring south of the Ohio River. Amounts may approach half to three-quarters of an inch in southern Kentucky, with lesser amounts to the north. Any severe threat will be relegated to the Gulf Coast, south of the low.
The rest of the week will be quiet with high pressure reaching from Canada into the eastern United States. Temperatures will hover near normal values. The coolest mornings will likely come on Wednesday and Thursday when readings slip into the middle and upper 30s.
A long north-south cold front will approach us from the west towards the end of this forecast period, with shower chances out ahead of it.
Aviation. (18Z TAF Issuance) Issued at 145 PM EDT Sun Mar 29 2020
VFR weather. Winds from the southwest will continue to be quite breezy through this evening. Gusts of 30-35 kts are likely across the southern IN and northern KY sites through early evening. Gusts around 25 kts will be more common in southern KY. Winds will gradually diminish this evening but remain elevated overnight.
Ridging builds in for Monday, which will result in mostly sunny skies with just a little cirrus at times. WNW winds could gust as high as 20-25 kts Monday.
LMK WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. IN . None. KY . Wind Advisory until 6 PM EDT this evening for KYZ030-031-033>043- 048-049-057.

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.
