High pressure will build in Wednesday providing dry weather.

Another low pressure system will bring additional chances for
rain Thursday and Friday. High pressure will bring with it dry
conditions for the weekend.

Near term /through Wednesday/
Scattered light rain continues to linger across the southeastern
counties early this afternoon. As h5 s/w pulls farther into the
appalachians, the pcpn should dissipate, so have the tonight
forecast dry.

Models keep the low level moisture trapped across the region
overnight, so increased the cloud cover. Went cloudy for all

Bumped up low temperatures for tonight a few degrees. The lows
now range from the upper 30s in west central ohio to the mid
40s in NRN ky.

Short term /Wednesday night/
For Wednesday, sfc high over the great lakes will nose down into
the fa, while h5 ridge builds up from tn and SRN ky. Latest
model runs are suggesting that the low clouds will erode from ne
to SW tomorrow morning. This will be followed by an increase in
high level clouds late in the day however. Despite the morning
clouds highs Wednesday will rise to the mid 50s in west central
oh to the mid 60s the south.

H5 ridge will continue to build across the region Wednesday
night. Trend of the models was to be a little slower with the
onset of pcpn with the next system, which is digging out of the
srn plains, so held off on any pcpn Wednesday night. Lows
Wednesday night will generally be in the 40s, with a few
location in the extreme north making the upper 30s.

Long term /Thursday through Tuesday/
Thursday will see the upper ridge breaking down and a surface
low pressure system moving northeast from the midwest into
northern indiana by evening. An upper level longwave trough will
develop west of the surface low and gulf moisture will stream in
on a 50kt h8 jet over the western tn valley. Used thunderstorm
wording during the day where pops were >55% and peppered the
overnight with a straight thunderstorm potential given the
strong moisture transport and stacked but elongated system. By
the daytime hours on Friday, the upper low will be well south
of the region but the l/w trough axis will still have to move
through the ohio valley. Again, put pops >55% with thunder for
the daytime period Friday but organized convection appears to be
limited to any remnants from overnight storms. A lingering light
shower may eke into Friday night but rapid improvement is
expected as low pressure at the surface and aloft moves east and
away from the region.

The upper ridge re-establishes itself through the weekend and
breaks down on Monday next week. Low pressure in the ms valley
should orient nw-se and pivot into the ohio valley with
increased chances of rain Monday night into Tuesday, and rapid
improvement beyond that.

Temperatures will be above normal for the bulk of the period. Highs
mainly in the 60s in warm advection Thursday and Friday will be
followed by near normal upper 50s Saturday under modest cold
advection. Highs will be boosted back up into the 60s Sunday and
Monday by warm advection ahead of the second low. Overnight lows
will be above normal through the period, significantly above
normal on Thursday and Monday nights given the warm advection

Aviation /00z Wednesday through Sunday/
MVFR ceilings continue to linger in wake of low level moisture
behind surface low. A couple of breaks have occurred but these
should be brief.

Consensus of models is to have the ceilings remain MVFR
overnight until late Wednesday morning/afternoon as sfc high
builds in from the north. This should scour out low clouds from
ne to SW through the day reachingVFR in the afernoon.

North winds around 10 kts will become northeast overnight and
stay there on Wednesday into Wednesday evening.

Outlook... MVFR ceilings and visibilities likely Thursday into
Friday evening along with a chance of thunderstorms. MVFR to
ifr ceilings likely Friday night into Saturday.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
