and the beat GOES on with high pressure at the surface and aloft
in firm control. With drier air in place, dense river valley
fog not as widespread this morning. After morning fog, wall to
wall sunshine is expected. With another day of sunshine, drier
air and good mixing, have increased high temperatures a degree
or two this afternoon. Highs will likely reach 90 degrees in
more areas this afternoon than yesterday. Under clear skies and
with very light winds at best Sunday tonight, some more river
valley fog can be expected.
Short term Monday through Wednesday
As of 240 am Sunday...
no changes to the synoptic setup through the middle of next
week. Upper ridging over the middle ohio valley into the
northeast drives the mainly clear conditions with above normal
temperatures. Maria will continue its slow trek northward off
the outer banks of north carolina, potentially slinging high
level clouds into the mountains. No significant pops expected in
the short term.
Long term Wednesday night through Saturday

cold front pushes into the area in response to an upper level
trough digging into the northern great lakes. Runs of the long
term models returns lower pops upon passage, with a mainly dry
frontal passage scenario at this point in the forecast. A
secondary closed low aloft digs southeastward into the lakes
and reinforces the cooler airmass for the weekend with another
cold front and resultant 850mb temperatures down in the lower

high pressure continues. Per current trend, will have ifr river
valley fog dissipating 12-13z. Otherwise,VFR with just some
thin cirrus and light easterly winds today. Ifr river valley
fog Sunday night may be a bit more widespread and earlier, but
still after 06z, as models increase low level moisture again.

forecast confidence: medium on timing onset of dense fog.
Alternate scenarios: fog timing may vary from forecast.
Experimental table of flight category objectively shows consistency
of WFO forecast to available model information:
h = high: TAF consistent with all models or all but one model.
M = medium: TAF has varying level of consistency with models.
L = low: TAF inconsistent with all models or all but one model.

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.
