Aviation Weather Discussion for Eastern Kentucky

(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Tuesday night) ISSUED AT 120 AM EST TUE NOV 12 2019 A potent cold front is crossing deeper into eastern Kentucky ATTM. This is resulting in NW winds of 10 to 15 kts gusting upwards to 20 kts at times. These breezy conditions are expected to continue through the bulk of the TAF period, as well. This frontal boundary is quickly changing its rain over to snow so that only SJS is still seeing liquid pcpn for just the next hour before it too switches to snow. VIS and CIGS will be from IFR to LIFR, at times, over the next couple of hours for all TAF sites behind the boundary. As cold and dry air quickly work in behind the arctic front, light snow will taper off from west to east early Tuesday morning. The snow will linger longest in the far eastern portion of the state (KSJS), but all sites should be down to just flurries by dawn. However, MVFR CIGS may stay in place through much of the day, with cold air bringing the potential for continued snow flurries so long as the clouds stick around. Look for VFR conditions to return also west to east late this afternoon while the northwest winds stay up in the 10 to 15 kt range with occasionally higher gusts.
