AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
227 AM EDT WED AUG 27 2014

.SHORT TERM...(TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY)
ISSUED AT 227 AM EDT WED AUG 27 2014

HIGH PRESSURE IS IN PLACE OVER EASTERN KENTUCKY AT BOTH THE SURFACE
AND ALOFT. A COLD FRONT WILL BE MOVING SOUTH DURING THE DAY TODAY.
THE FRONT WILL BE WEAKENING AS IT BUMPS UP AGAINST THE SURFACE AND
UPPER HIGHS. CURRENT THINKING IS THAT THERE WILL BE SOME
PRECIPITATION NORTH OF THE MOUNTAIN PARKWAY THIS AFTERNOON...HOWEVER
AS THE FRONT CONTINUES TO WEAKEN TONIGHT AS IT MOVES SOUTH...THE
PRECIPITATION WILL BE ENDING. ON THURSDAY...AS THE DIURNAL HEATING
GETS GOING...IT WILL GENERATE SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ALONG
THE REMNANTS OF THE FRONT...GENERALLY SOUTH OF THE MOUNTAIN PARKWAY
DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THE TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE IN
THE MID TO UPPER 80S TODAY AND THEN COOL OFF A LITTLE WITH THE FRONT
TOMORROW. THE MODELS ARE IN PRETTY GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS SYSTEM
SO CONFIDENCE IS BETTER THAN AVERAGE.

.LONG TERM...(THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY)
ISSUED AT 227 AM EDT WED AUG 27 2014

THE EXTENDED DISCUSSION WILL BE ISSUED SHORTLY.

.AVIATION...(FOR THE 06Z TAFS THROUGH 06Z WEDNESDAY NIGHT)
ISSUED AT 227 AM EDT WED AUG 27 2014

FOG HAS FORMED ONCE AGAIN IN THE DEEPER VALLEYS. LOOKING AT THE
CURRENT TEMPERATURE AND DEWPOINT SPREADS AT THE TAF STATIONS...THE
ONLY ONE THAT SEEMED SUSPECT WAS SME. AS SUCH...PUT SOME MVFR MIST IN
THE SME TAF FOR 10-12Z. OTHER THAN THAT EXPECT VFR THE ENTIRE TIME
PERIOD. A COLD FRONT WILL BE MOVING SOUTH DURING THE DAY TODAY. THE
FRONT WILL BE WEAKENING AS IT BUMPS UP AGAINST THE SURFACE AND UPPER
HIGHS. DO NOT EXPECT ANY PRECIPITATION AT THE TAF STATIONS DURING THE
FORECAST PERIOD.
