Very warm and humid this afternoon, with an isolated shower or
thunderstorm possible. A cold front will bring widespread
precipitation on Monday, followed by much cooler temperatures
through late week.
Near term /until 6 pm this evening/
For the afternoon update have bumped up MAX temperatures a
degree or so, as readings continue to push through the 70s and
into the 80s. An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible
in the ridges and far north with differential heating, and an
outflow boundary across southern ohio may be able to impact
areas toward zanesville as well.
Short term /6 pm this evening through Tuesday/
Conditions will remain warm and dry overnight and clouds will
begin to fill back in toward Monday morning as atmospheric
moisture increases ahead of the next front. Still seeing some
timing difference in model solutions with the onset of showers
on Monday. Will lean more toward a slower solution since the
path of the upper level low is more toward the north on Monday
and the trough axis will really not show much of an easterly
swing until Monday afternoon. This will likely slow down the
eastward progression of the surface front. However, once the
large upper level system, which by Monday afternoon will be over
the western great lakes, becomes negatively tilted, the surface
front will pick up forward speed and rush through Monday
afternoon. Showers and storms will develop along the front as it
moves eastward, with some enhancement in the strength of the
precipitation late day Monday, as an area of strong low-level
moisture convergence develops. This would likely be at a time
when the front has reached the eastern half of the area.
Front will clear the area Monday evening, with boundary
associated showers/storms ending as well. Strong cold air
advection will dive in behind the exiting system, bringing more|
clouds and the risk for additional showers.
The cold air won't be around for long on Tuesday, as winds swing
around to the southwest during the morning and warm air
advection will begin in ernest. The push of warmer air will also
disperse the cloud cover, allowing for plenty of sunshine by the
afternoon. Temperatures Tuesday will be near or slightly below
Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/
A southern stream trough will begin to spread moistures north
toward the region by later Wednesday, with shower chances into
the weekend as a mean mid level trough remains across the ern
conus. Temperatures will trend 5 to 10 degrees below the
seasonal average through late week.
Aviation /16z Sunday through Thursday/
Except for fog at zzv/hlg/mgw dissipating shortly after sunrise,
vfr cumulus are basically all that will be expected for most of
today with clearing skies overnight, other than the possibility
of some stratus reforming around kduj. Gusty southerly winds to
20 kt could potentially bring some crosswind issues at sites
this afternoon. A cold front on Monday will likely bring
restrictions in showers/thunderstorms to all terminals, but with
the 12z TAF issuance, pit was the only site included due to the
30 hour length.
Restrictions are possible again with Thursday low pressure.

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.
