Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Jackson KY
331 AM EDT TUE MAY 31 2016

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Wednesday)
Issued at 330 AM EDT TUE MAY 31 2016

The short term period will feature quiet weather and warm
temperatures as high pressure takes hold of the region. Latest
satellite imagery shows some high level clouds pushing into the
region but for the most part skies remain clear. Clear skies
should prevail through the morning before some cu develops due to
daytime heating. Any precip that develops in the afternoon should
stay well southeast of the region.

Skies are expected to clear again Tuesday night, potentially
setting up valley fog again. Mid to upper level moisture begins
increasing Wednesday morning as return flow sets up. High pressure
shifts off to the northeast, allowing for shower chances to return by
Wednesday afternoon. These showers will likely be contained to
the higher terrain along the VA/KY border.

Temperatures will remain on the warm side with afternoon highs
peaking in the mid 80s. Morning lows will feature ridge valley
splits with valleys potentially dipping into the uppers 50s while
ridges stay in the 60s.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday night through Monday)
Issued at 330 AM EDT TUE MAY 31 2016

The long term discussion will be issued shortly.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Tuesday night)

With high pressure taking hold of the area, skies will remain
clear. The only exception are some high level clouds moving in
from the west. However, these high level clouds will not have any
impact on fog development tonight in the river valleys. There
isn`t much moisture to work with, but MVFR visibility and BR is
still possible at the TAF sites, except JKL. After the fog
dissipates, can expect VFR conditions to prevail through the
remainder of the period. Winds will remain light through the
