Aviation Weather Discussion for Eastern Kentucky

(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Tuesday afternoon) ISSUED AT 230 PM EDT MON MAR 27 2017 Showers and some thunderstorms will affect JKL and SJS early in the period per recent radar and short term model trends. Otherwise, a VCTS will suffice at the remainder of the TAF sites through the period as a low pressure system and upper level trough approach. More organized convection is expected to arrive 22Z to 23Z in the west near SME and then move across the area through 6Z to 8Z. This will at least lower conditions to MVFR if not IFR for a while during the 6Z to 18Z period as the lower levels saturate. Thunderstorms could also produce gusty winds and lower VIS at the TAF sites, between 22Z and 4Z, but confidence in this timing is not high enough to include attm. Once the MVFR or IFR develops during the 6Z to 12Z period, it should linger through the end of the period.
