AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
301 PM CST FRI MAR 6 2015

.SHORT TERM...(THIS EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT)
ISSUED AT 301 PM CST FRI MAR 6 2015

HIGH PRESSURE TO OUR SOUTH WILL KEEP OUR REGION DRY WITH A WARMING
TREND INTO EARLY SUNDAY. MODELS SHOW THE HIGH MOVING EAST LATE IN
THE WEEKEND. THIS WILL ALLOW MOISTURE TO MAKE IT FAR ENOUGH
NORTHWARD TO GIVE OUR FAR SOUTHERN COUNTIES A CHANCE OF SPRINKLES
OR LIGHT RAIN SUNDAY AFTERNOON INTO SUNDAY NIGHT.

TEMPERATURES ARE A LITTLE TRICKY WITH THE SNOW COVER, BUT
INCREASING SOUTHERLY FLOW AND PLENTY OF SUNSHINE SATURDAY SHOULD
HELP TEMPERATURES REACH THE MIDDLE TO UPPER 40S. ON SUNDAY,
EXPECTING CONTINUED SNOW COVER AND INCREASING CLOUDS, TEMPERATURES
SHOULD BE SIMILAR TO SATURDAY, OR JUST A COUPLE OF DEGREES WARMER.
TEMPERATURES SHOULD REMAIN ABOVE FREEZING INTO SUNDAY NIGHT, SO
ANY PRECIPITATION SHOULD JUST BE RAIN.

.LONG TERM...(MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY)
ISSUED AT 301 PM CST FRI MAR 6 2015

WE ANTICIPATE A TRANSITIONAL MID TROPOSPHERIC FLOW PATTERN NEXT
WEEK. A SLOW MOVING TROF FORECAST ACROSS THE CENTRAL PART OF THE
COUNTRY WILL BECOME SPLIT FROM THE MAIN BRANCH ACROSS THE NORTHERN
TIER OF STATES BY MID WEEK. THE UPPER FLOW WILL BECOME MORE
SOUTHWESTERLY. WEAK ENERGY ALOFT AND ASSOCIATED MOISTURE MAY BRING A
CHANCE OF RAIN TO THE AREA MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY...ESPECIALLY
THE SE 1/2 OF THE CWFA. A MID WEEK LULL IS FORECAST...THEN THE
MODELS AND THEIR ENSEMBLE SUITES SUGGEST MOISTURE MAY SURGE TOWARD
THE AREA BY FRIDAY IN CONJUNCTION WITH AND AHEAD OF THE SLOW MOVING
SOUTHERN U.S. UPPER TROF. STILL LOOKING AT MILDER TEMPERATURES NEXT
WEEK.
