Rain is expected tonight and Tuesday with crossing low
pressure. Dry weather is expected with mid week high pressure
before low pressure returns rain to the forecast by late week.
Near term /through Tuesday/
Low pressure is progged to track from the ms valley to the oh
valley by Tuesday morning. Increasing moisture and shortwave
support should result in showers increasing tonight and Tuesday.
Maintained a slight chance of thunder generally S of I 70 where
a brief period of limited instability is possible this evening,
though meso analysis show some near term model progs are a
little overdone with CAPE and showalter indicies.
Showers should taper off from w-e Tuesday as the low tracks e
and the axis of the supporting shortwave trough crosses. Lows
are expected to be around 20 deg above average tonight, with
highs Tue around 10 deg above seasonal levels.
Short term /Tuesday night through Thursday/
As high pressure moves over the great lakes, cooler and drier
air will enter the region. Even this cooler air will still be
slightly above normal. The high will be shunted to the east by
Thursday afternoon as low pressure approaches from the west.
Showers will become a threat by late Thursday afternoon.
Long term /Thursday night through Monday/
Low pressure will bring rain into the region Thursday night,
Friday, and Friday night before leaving just a slight chance of
a shower by Saturday. High pressure settling back in should
allow for dry conditions into Sunday. Have stuck close to
superblend forecast by Monday with diverging model solutions.
Temperatures will remain slightly above normal.
Aviation /22z Monday through Saturday/
Intermittent high MVFR cloud coverage will continue before
conditions deteriorate overnight into Tuesday as low pressure
brings another period of rain to the region.
restrictions are likely again by late week as another broad low
affects the upper ohio valley.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
