Synopsis
Next cold front Sunday night through Monday night. Remaining
cool through mid week, but modest warming and dry for the end
of the week.

Near term through tonight
As of 927 am Sunday...

stubborn valley fog will finally dissipate over the remaining
holdouts by 11 am. Tweaked hourly temperature grids based on
latest hrrr lamp along with the sky grids. Otherwise, no
significant changes to the forecast for today.

As of 205 am Sunday...

stalled frontal boundary across central ky southern WV will lift
north today, as low pressure moves into the area. Temperatures
will warm nicely today, despite increasing cloud cover, with
many locations topping out in the mid to upper 50s. Frontal
boundary will sag south into the area late tonight, with chances
of precipitation increasing, as low pressure moves into the
ohio valley region. Overall precipitation amounts will remain
light, and mainly in the form of rain, although a rain snow mix
will be possible across the far north to start, depending on
moisture depth.

Short term Monday through Wednesday
As of 245 am Sunday...

the forcing for the precipitation becomes a bit less organized
as the frontal boundary sinks into the ohio valley. Expecting
clusters of precipitation moving through, along the boundary
with weak low pressure areas until a better identified upper
trough axis assists in kicking the system through the mountains.

This will cause the main surface low that has moved into the
mid atlantic to deepen, and accelerate to the northeast over the
ocean. In the end, this is a relatively low QPF event with snow
showers developing in the mountains post FROPA Tuesday Tuesday
night. Accumulations thus far in the forecast under 1 inch.

Long term Wednesday night through Saturday
As of 245 am Sunday...

still seeing a reinforcement to the seasonally cool airmass with
a dry cold front clipping the CWA Wednesday night as evidenced
by the 850mb temperatures dropping slightly through Thursday.

Strong canadian high pressure over the great lakes keeps the
entire region dry through Friday. Brief ridging aloft will
allow a recovery to the temperatures for the end of the week
into Saturday. Meanwhile, a pacific system entering the west
coast Wednesday will traverse the southern tier of states,
deepening over the lower mississippi valley, and bringing the
next precipitation later Saturday.

Aviation 15z Sunday through Thursday
As of 1225 am Sunday...

ifr lifr river valley fog has developed across the area. Expect
fog to linger through at least 14z-15z, when a return toVFR
with light southwesterly westerly surface winds is expected.

After 02z, expect the development of widespread MVFR ceilings,
with local ifr after 09z, along with light rain and light rain
and snow showers across southeast ohio and the northern
mountains of wv.

Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 12z Monday...

forecast confidence: high.

Alternate scenarios: timing of return toVFR today may vary from
forecast. Timing of precipitation and associated restrictions
tonight 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.

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.
