608 am est Wed jan 23 2019
Rain will overspread the area today ahead of low pressure
advancing to the great lakes. Falling temperatures behind a cold
front will change precipitation to snow tonight through Thursday
morning before drier air arrives Thursday afternoon. Cold and
dry weather is expected Friday under high pressure.
Near term until 6 pm this evening
Area is under a moist and gusty southerly flow ahead of low
pressure located over illinois, close to previous model
estimates, though movement of the low is perhaps a bit slower
than was suggested. Rain is developing and overspreading the iln
fa from west to east. As the low lifts to the great lakes, rain
intensity will be aided by increasing convergence and lift
along a cold front trailing the low. Model QPF still shows
around an inch of rainfall, which will combine with snow melt to
cause localized high water, and one or two river forecast
points may reach flood stage. With temperatures rising into the
40s in a well mixed atmosphere, there is little to no chance for
freezing or frozen precip through this afternoon.
Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Thursday
Temperatures will be falling due to cold advection this evening
through tonight as the cold front makes its way east of the
area. While the bulk of rain will have ceased early tonight,
residual precip will change to snow before it ends Thursday
morning. Expect under an inch of snow accumulation. Look for dry
weather Thursday afternoon with a ridge of high pressure
building from the southwest. Chilly below normal highs in the
20s and 30s are expected.
Long term Thursday night through Tuesday
Active long term forecast period with several chances for
precipitation and reinforcements to arctic air late this week,
Sunday and then next Tuesday.
Northwest flow with weak shortwave rotating through the great lakes
Thursday night may lead to a few flurries or snow showers across the
northeast. Arctic air to begin settling into the region with
Thursday night lows from the single digits northwest to the lower
Expect a good amount of sunshine Friday with a surface ridge of high
pressure building across the area. Temperatures will struggle to
rise to highs from the lower teens north to around 20 south.
Clipper type system to track southeast through the ohio valley -
affecting the area late Friday night into Saturday. Will continue
chance pops for snow with the best chance across the northern
counties. Any snow accumulation is expected to be an inch or less.
Expect early lows Friday evening with temperatures rising overnight.|
Saturdays highs look to range from near 20 north to the lower 30s
The next in a series of systems to drop southeast through the area
with an associated strong cold front pushing through the ohio valley
Sunday afternoon. Precipitation may start as a mix in the far south
transitioning to a chance of snow across the entire area in strong
caa. Sundays highs to range from the lower mid 20s northwest to the
mid 30s southeast. More of a glancing blow of arctic air Sunday
night with early lows from the lower teens north to the mid 20s
south... Prior to warming overnight. Surface high pressure to offer a
temporary dry period later Sunday into Sunday night.
More vigorous surface low to track through the ohio valley
Monday Monday night. Will bump pops up to likely with rain across
the southeast and snow northeast - changing to snow Monday night.
Highs Monday from the upper 20s northwest to the lower 40s
southeast. Models showing a stronger shot of arctic air in the wake
of this system with highs Tuesday from the mid teens northwest to
the mid upper 20s southeast. Lows Tuesday night will likely be in
the single digits above and below zero.
Aviation 12z Wednesday through Sunday
As expected, TAF sites are being affected by low pressure and a
cold front. Rain developing in moist ascent on a southerly flow
ahead of the low will continue through the early part of the
forecast period. Through this afternoon, surface winds will
gust over 20 knots out of the south to southwest, and wind shear
up to 55 knots will coincide with periods of moderate rain.
Ceilings and visibilities will fall to MVFR and ifr starting
around 13z as the boundary layer approaches saturation. Ifr
ceilings will probably linger toward the end of the forecast as
snow mixes with rain at cmh and lck, while precip diminishes as
winds shift to west in the vicinity of the cold front. A modest
improvement to MVFR may occur at cvg and luk near the end of
Outlook... MVFR ceilings may continue through Friday. MVFR
conditions are possible again on Saturday and Sunday.

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.
