Aviation Weather Discussion for Eastern Kentucky

(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Tuesday morning) ISSUED AT 615 AM EST MON JAN 22 2018 The TAF sites are starting off the morning VFR and this will hold till this afternoon and evening timeframe. A strengthening low level jet will develop today ahead of a cold front and upper level trough. This will lead to LLWS through late morning. A tightening pressure gradient will also lead to gusty winds this afternoon and tonight, with gusts out of the south to southwest at 25 to 35 mph at times. A cold front will head toward and cross the region this afternoon into tonight and bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms. This line of showers and thunderstorms will lead to periods of MVFR for CIGs and VIS this afternoon and evening. These will subside and only showers will remain in the wake, and the guidance indicates CIGs will improve to VFR.
