UPPER RIDGING CONTINUES TO SPIN OVER THE SOUTHEAST UNITED STATES.  
SATELLITE AND RADAR LOOPS SHOW A TEXTBOOK RING OF FIRE PATTERN WITH  
CLOUDS AND STORMS FLOWING AROUND THE PERIPHERY OF THE RIDGE. WITH  
THE CENTER OF THE RIDGING OVER VIRGINIA AND NORTH CAROLINA, THE LMK  
CWA SITS ON THE EDGE OF THE RIDGE, JUST ENOUGH INTO IT TO SQUELCH  
MOST CONVECTION. AS A RESULT, THIS EVENING SHOULD BE DRY WITH THE  
POSSIBLE EXCEPTION OF A STRAY STORM FAR WEST. SOME OF THE  
AFOREMENTIONED THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY, CURRENTLY OVER THE MIDDLE AND  
LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY, MAY SLIP INTO THE WEST/NORTHWEST SECTIONS  
OF THE REGION LATE TONIGHT.  
 
SATURDAY WILL BE MORE OF THE SAME WITH HOT AND HUMID WEATHER AND A  
SMALL CHANCE OF POP-UP STORMS, ESPECIALLY IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY,  
ESPECIALLY NORTH AND WEST ONCE AGAIN. AFTERNOON HEAT INDEX READINGS  
WILL APPROACH 100. WE'LL GET LITTLE RELIEF SATURDAY NIGHT WITH MUGGY  
CONDITIONS AND THE MERCURY ONLY DROPPING INTO THE LOWER AND MIDDLE  
70S.  
   
LONG TERM (SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY)
 
 
ISSUED AT 212 PM EDT FRI AUG 26 2016  
 
THE UPPER HIGH WILL REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH MONDAY, THEN GET  
SUPPRESSED EARLY NEXT WEEK AS A LARGE UPPER TROF SWINGS THROUGH  
SOUTHEAST CANADA. THIS MAY HELP TO LOWER TEMPERATURES A COUPLE OF  
DEGREES, AND WILL CONTINUE THE DAILY CHANCES OF SCATTERED PRIMARILY  
DIURNAL THUNDERSTORMS. NO SIGNIFICANT SURFACE FRONTS TO HANG ONE'S  
HAT ON, AND WE'LL HAVE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE TROPICAL  
DISTURBANCE CURRENTLY OVER THE BAHAMAS TOO.  
 

 
   
AVIATION (00Z TAF UPDATE)
 
 
ISSUED AT 655 PM EDT FRI AUG 26 2016  
 
CENTRAL KENTUCKY WILL REMAIN UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF HIGH PRESSURE  
ALOFT, KEEPING CONVECTION CONFINED TO WESTERN TN, WESTERN KY INTO  
EASTERN IL. EXPECT LIGHT/VARIABLE WINDS TONIGHT WITH ANOTHER ROUND  
OF LIGHT GROUND FOG AT BWG A COUPLE HOURS EITHER SIDE OF SUNRISE.  
OTHERWISE, PLAN ON MORE VFR CONDITIONS INTO SATURDAY WITH A SCT CU  
FIELD DEVELOPING BY AFTERNOON. WINDS WILL BE GENERALLY OUT OF THE  
SOUTH 5 TO 7 KTS. THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE OF A LATE AFTERNOON  
SHOWER OR STORM DEVELOPING BUT CONFIDENCE IS TOO LOW AT THIS TIME TO  
INCLUDE IN THE TAF.
