AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
206 AM CDT MON AUG 24 2015

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Wednesday night)
Issued at 206 AM CDT MON AUG 24 2015

NW flow aloft, with high pressure persistent at the surface
through mid week, means dry weather with temperatures a bit
below normal. Record lows will be possible Tuesday and Wednesday
mornings. Skies will be mostly clear.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Sunday)
Issued at 206 AM CDT MON AUG 24 2015

Models show surface high pressure sliding east from the Great Lakes
region into the northeast U.S., which will keep conditions dry and
pleasant across the PAH forecast area Thursday and Friday.  North to
northeast flow for the end of the work week will keep temperatures a
few degrees below normal with highs in the 80 to 85 degree range,
and lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

As the high moves farther east, winds will shift back to the south
for the weekend,  This will result in increasing temperatures and
dew points Saturday and Sunday.  Models are going back and forth on
producing light QPF late Friday night into Saturday night associated
with a potential weak surface low/upper trof.  For now prefer to
stick with a dry forecast because of model inconsistency and limited
moisture return.
