AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
308 AM EDT WED APR 23 2014

.SHORT TERM...(TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY)
ISSUED AT 307 AM EDT WED APR 23 2014

A VERY QUIET AND MILD WEATHER PATTERN ON TAP IN THE SHORT TERM. A
LARGE RIDGE OF SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN IN PLACE ACROSS THE
REGION TODAY AND TOMORROW. WINDS WILL REMAIN OUT OF THE NORTH
TODAY...BUT WE SHOULD EXPERIENCE A NICE WARM UP ANYWAY AS THE COOL
AIR MASS MODIFIED BENEATH CLEAR SKIES. A WEAK WARM FRONTAL BOUNDARY
WILL BRING AND INCREASE IN CLOUD COVER TONIGHT AND TOMORROW...BUT
LITTLE MORE THAN THAT AS THE BOUNDARY WILL BE STARVED FOR MOISTURE AS
IT PASSES THROUGH THE AREA. PATCHY VALLEY FROST WILL BE POSSIBLE
AGAIN LATE TONIGHT INTO EARLY THURSDAY MORNING AS OUR DEEPER VALLEYS
AGAIN DROP IN THE MID 30S. TODAYS HIGHS WILL BE QUITE PLEASANT...WITH
READINGS TOPPING IN THE LOW TO MID 60S. WITH WINDS HAVING NOT DROPPED
OFF QUITE AS MUCH AS EXPECTED OVERNIGHT...TEMPERATURES AROUND THE
AREA ALSO STAYED A BIT WARMER THAN ORIGINALLY FORECAST...PARTICULARLY
ON THE RIDGES. THEREFORE...TODAYS FORECAST HIGHS WERE INCREASED BY A
DEGREE ACROSS THE BOARD TO ACCOUNT FOR THE DIFFERENCE AND PER THE
WARMER MAVMOS GUIDANCE. WITH WINDS GOING NEAR CALM AND SKIES MOSTLY
CLEAR...A MODEST RIDGE VALLEY SPLIT WILL AGAIN BE ON TAP FOR
TONIGHT...WITH OUR RIDGES FALLING INTO THE LOWER 40S AND THE
SURROUNDING VALLEYS LIKELY BOTTOMING OUT IN THE MID 30S.

.LONG TERM...(THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY)
ISSUED AT 307 AM EDT WED APR 23 2014

AN EXTENDED DISCUSSION WILL BE ISSUED SHORTLY.
