639 am edt Tue sep 26 2017
High pressure in control today. Mostly dry cold fronts later
Wednesday and again Friday. High pressure for the weekend. A
return to normal temperatures last half of the week.
Near term through tonight
As of 635 am Tuesday...
minimal changes to the forecast this morning.
As of 225 am Tuesday...
models are hinting at better low level moisture depth over the
central and southern mountains with heating today, leading to a
bit more robust cumulus field developing. However, still will be
tough to get any showers out of this vertical growth. Pattern
remains the same with a southwest to northeast oriented ridge.
No significant changes to the temperature forecast, and drop the
dewpoints during mixing today undercutting the guidance a bit in
that facet. Valley fog expected again tonight.
Short term Wednesday through Friday night
As of 255 am Tuesday...
amplifying northern stream upper trough over the northeastern
conus allows a cold front to sweep across the ohio valley later
Wednesday and Wednesday night, and pushes maria out to sea with
no effect on our area. This will be a moisture starved front
thanks in great part to maria, although with the help of diurnal
heating we have just a slight chance of a light shower across
the far north with the front later Wednesday. Another moisture
starved cold front will drop across the area Friday, with only a
slight chance of a light shower across the far north. The big change
behind these fronts will be a return to near normal temperatures
Thursday and Friday.
Long term Saturday through Monday
As of 310 am Tuesday...
upper ridging again builds over the ohio valley with high
pressure and dry weather dominating this period. Temperatures
will still be near normal through the weekend, but a slow waring
trend is in store for early next week.
Aviation 12z Tuesday through Saturday
As of 635 am Tuesday...
conditions to improve from valley fog shortly after 12z this
morning, leading toVFR through at least 03z tonight, when
inconsistent valley fog will being to form again. Expecting a
more robust cumulus field over the mountains today, but still
vfr and very low shower chances.
Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 12z Wednesday...
forecast confidence: high.
Alternate scenarios: timing, density, and location of fog may vary.
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.
