High pressure centered south of the region will extend up the
western side of the appalachians through the end of the week.
This will keep southwesterly flow across the area, resulting in
dry conditions and a gradual warming of temperatures.
Near term until 6 pm this evening
Dry atmosphere in place will result in sunny skies today.
Southwest winds across the region will only increase a bit from
early morning speeds. Continued to forecast temperatures on the
cooler side of guidance.
Short term 6 pm this evening through Friday night
Ridge of high pressure will extend from the gulf coast into the
upper ohio valley through the period. May see some cirrus
spilling into the area, but that should still allow for mainly
clear skies. Southwest winds will persist which will allow
gradual warm up to continue. However, still believe guidance is
slightly too aggressive with warmer temperatures.
Long term Saturday through Wednesday
Tranquil weather conditions will start out Friday night. Southerly
flow will allow for temperatures to climb into the 30s and 40s for
Saturday and 40s and 50s for Sunday. Some light rain will be
possible at times this weekend, however rain is expected to be light
and not widespread in coverage.
Better chances for precipitation move into the region for Monday and
into Monday evening as a frontal boundary approaches and moves|
through the region. Winds will pick up with the frontal boundary
with some wind gusts around 30 to 40 mph. As colder air works in
cannot rule out some light snow after the passage of the front.
This system will move out of the region by Tuesday evening and there
is not be a clear signal for any additional precipitation occurring
in the long term.
Aviation 12z Thursday through Monday
Vfr will prevail through the period with just some thin high
clouds passing across the region tonight. Southwest winds will
persist, increasing to 12 to 15 kt during the day, but otherwise
being around 10 kt.
Outlook... MVFR ceilings possible Saturday afternoon into
Sunday night. MVFR ceilings and visibilities along with wind
gusts to 25 kt possible Monday.

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.
