Marine Weather and Tides
8/26/2020 The 7 day forecast is taking about 5 seconds to load but it will eventually load. NOAA is still working on it.
8/18/2020 NOAA continues to have trouble. Wind guest will occasionally be left off graphs. I am working with NOAA to resolve the issue.
12/16/2019 NOAA is having trouble with requests that include wind gusts. I am posting graphs without wind gusts until it gets fixed.
10/9/2019 Updated the Marine Zones.
9/4/2019 Fixed the weather maps due to NOAA moving them.
7/25/2019 New feature in the Airports section gives a link to 5 minute updates for data reports.

Forecast Update. Issued at 945 PM EDT Mon Sep 28 2020
One deck of clouds is pushing east of the I-65 corridor this hour, while another set of mid clouds is moving in from central IL. Expect with low-level moisture not scoured out of the region that we'll see either fog or new low stratus development later in the overnight. Best chances will be across south central KY and over/north to the I- 75 corridor. Not certain how dense that fog will be, but winds have become light fairly quickly this evening, so will watch trends overnight. Updated the forecast to expand to "areas" of fog. Sent out the update earlier.
Short Term. (This evening through Tuesday) Issued at 300 PM EDT Mon Sep 28 2020
Meridional upper flow is in place across the CONUS with a large upper trough over the Upper Midwest and central Plains and a strong ridge over the West Coast. Locally, the main feature of interest is a stout cold front pushing into east-central KY. A light to moderate rain shield mostly along and behind the actual front will continue to stream northeast over areas east of I-65. At least light rain should persist in the I-75 corridor through the evening.
Winds have been breezy with gusts in the 20-30 mph range, with winds veering out of the WNW behind the front. CAA is well underway, and temperatures in the upper 50s are common in the cooler airmass. Skies remain overcast, but a clearing line associated with the mid- latitude cyclone's dry slot has been pushing east across western KY and SW Indiana. Expect some partial clearing this evening with the arrival of the dry slot. Areas toward I-75 will see those low clouds hang on longer through the evening. Partly cloudy skies and cooler conditions expected overnight with lows in the mid 40s to lower 50s.
The upper level trough axis pivots overhead Tue afternoon and evening. A notable band of moisture around 4-5 kft looks to keep skies mostly cloudy on Tuesday. Given the mid and upper level energy and shallow moisture, would not be shocked to see a few isolated light rain showers or sprinkles Tue afternoon. But will keep PoPs limited to 10-20 percent. Expect a relatively chilly day with highs topping out in the low to mid 60s.
Long Term. (Tuesday night through Monday) Issued at 300 PM EDT Mon Sep 28 2020
Tuesday Night - Thursday Night .
The upper pattern will be quite amplified through the long term, with anomalous ridging across the west CONUS and troughing across the east CONUS. This will keep temperatures below normal for this time of year, and with little deep moisture to speak of expect dry conditions, at least through mid week.
Heavy cloud cover is expected to clear west to east by late Tuesday evening as the shortwave trough axis moves east. Clearing skies are expected to set the stage for mid to upper 40s readings by Wednesday morning. Mostly sunny skies will bring a nice warm up (albeit still below normal) to the upper 60s and low 70s for Wednesday highs. Similar temperatures continue into Thursday, with highs a bit cooler and mainly in the 60s. Thursday night should be the coolest of this stretch with lows in the low to mid 40s.
A reinforcing shortwave drops into and through the area Thursday night, which could bring some light showers across our north. Prefer to continue the dry forecast for now, until more certainty in available moisture appears. This will drag another cold front through the area, which is the reason for the cooler temps Thursday night mentioned above.
Friday - Saturday .
Expect a chilly Friday with temps struggling to around 60 for highs. Some folks may not get out of the upper 50s. Surface high pressure settles over the area Friday night/Saturday morning and good radiational cooling will allow for temps in the upper 30s and low 40s. It's possible we might see a patchy frost threat in some of our coldest valleys by Saturday morning, but will wait to nail that down a bit later. Dry and below normal conditions continue through Saturday.
Saturday Night - Monday .
The best chance for rain appears to be Saturday night into Sunday as another shortwave trough rolls through the parent trough into our area. Will keep small chances for now, with an expected return to dry conditions by Monday. Temps remain below normal into early next week.
Aviation. (00Z TAF Issuance) Issued at 715 PM EDT Mon Sep 28 2020
Bit of a tricky forecast to start, with low stratus deck slowing down its eastward push at the LEX terminal. Rest of sites are VFR, but have kept in fuel-alternate MVFR potential at LEX a few more hours. After that, they may return to fuel-alternate or worse toward daybreak tomorrow, as the airmass doesn't dry out overnight and cooler temperatures settle in. BWG and HNB may see some fog/low clouds as well. Have gone optimistic for SDF and see how trends go overnight. Timing of improvements Tuesday morning will depend on how thick any cloud cover gets overnight.
