658 am edt Fri may 24 2019
A front will slowly move back to the northeast as a warm front
today, bringing a slight chance of thunderstorms. The holiday weekend
will be warm and humid with chances for showers and
thunderstorms throughout the period.
Near term until 6 pm this evening
An h5 ridge axis will sharpen across the region today.
Meanwhile the front that dropped down through the region late
night, will lift back to the north today as a warm front. It
looks like there will be enough convergence along the front and
instability from the daytime heating that a few showers or
thunderstorms could pop today. Expanded the 20 pops from the
previous forecast, that was in the southern part of the fa, to
cover the entire the fa.
Observations are showing patchy fog. Web cams are showing it to
be more scattered in nature.
Highs today will range from the mid 80s in the cinci tri-state
to the mid 70s in west central ohio.
Short term 6 pm this evening through Sunday
Any storms that pop today should be weakening quickly during
the evening hours. The majority of the tonight should be dry as
the h5 ridge brings dry conditions. Lows will range from the mid
to upper 60s.
On Saturday the h5 ridge will be flattened as the upper level
energy lifts northeast. Majority of the models have slowed the
pcpn Saturday, but scattered convection should reach the
northern counties late in the afternoon.
Saturday night into Sunday, additional PVA will work across the
region in the zonal flow. Rain chances will increase late
Saturday night into Sunday when pops will increase to likely.
Highs on Sunday will see a range across the region. Northern
counties will see highs in the upper 70s, while the southern
counties will warm into the mid 80s.
Long term Sunday night through Thursday
A cold front will push through the region Sunday night, pushing
the pcpn out of the area by morning. The h5 ridge re-builds
over the area Monday with the front lifting back north as a warm
front, keeping a chance of thunderstorms in the forecast.
Highest chance of pcpn will be in the great lakes Monday night
into Tuesday, but the fa will still have a chance of showers
Models continue to show slight timing differences with the
front that will affect the region Wednesday into Wednesday
night. In general pops will increase Wednesday, then decrease
Westerly mid level flow develops with initial frontal passage
followed by a secondary front. This will keep a low pop chance of a
shower or thunderstorm Thursday.
Aviation 12z Friday through Tuesday
Showers will be focused on a lingering boundary along the ohio
river early this morning, and then more towards late morning or
around noon at kday kiln as a warm front lifts northward. An
upper level ridge building in will inhibit any organized storms.
Conditions will beVFR for the region with the exception of some
sunrise surprise possible at kiln and another hour or two of
vlifr fog at kluk this morning. Fog over the area appears to be
shallow and should quickly dissipate.
Outlook... Thunderstorms possible at times Saturday night

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
