a surface high continues to advance east towards the ohio valley.
This will keep things dry with the cumulus clearing near sunset.

upper 20s in the eastern areas of southern indiana and central
kentucky. Areas to the west of interstate 65 will likely stay near

a highly amplified 500mb pattern will be in place to start the long
term period, but weather during the period will remain generally
quiet and mild. A stout shortwave will dig into the northern plains|
Tuesday evening and eventually make its way into our region
Wednesday, bringing increased clouds and precipitation chances.
Doesn't look like this system will be tapping into any gulf
moisture, so overall QPF will be light Wednesday into Thursday,
generally a quarter inch or less.
Amplified upper level ridging will then slowly slide toward the ohio
valley toward the end of the week into the weekend, resulting in dry
weather and a gradual warming trend. There are signs that the ridge
will break down late Sunday or early next week and give way to a
more unsettled and wet weather pattern, though confidence in the
details remain low at this time.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
