5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

An area of low pressure will push east of the region this
evening. An unsettled pattern is expected for the weekend with
multiple systems moving through the area.
Near term until 6 am Friday morning
With the loss of daytime heating, the coverage and intensity of
thundershowers has decreased markedly over the last several
hours in the area. Some lingering light showers will continue
for NE and E parts of the fa through early tonight before moving
east of the area. Even with this, however, measurable rain may
be difficult to come by for most locations.
Main item of interest overnight will be the potential for some
patchy fog development for western half of fa, especially as
back edge of cloud shield begins to through and radiational
cooling becomes a bit stronger. Mainly clear skies have already
crept into parts of northern ky and expect that back edge of
clouds will slowly drift east through the near term period. Do
not currently expect clear conditions to return for entire area
by end of near term period as mostly cloudy skies are still
expected for eastern fa, even by sunrise.
Lingering cloud cover will likely keep eastern zones a bit
warmer tonight than western zones, but still anticipate a fairly
uniform temperature pattern, with lows ranging from the low to
mid 50s by the end of the near term period.
Short term 6 am Friday morning through Friday night
Dry conditions will be present for much of the day on Friday. A
low pressure system will begin to quickly move towards the area
Friday evening into Friday night. Showers and thunderstorms will
move through the region. Isolated damaging winds will be the
primary threat, however cannot rule out some isolated large hail
Long term Saturday through Thursday
Weak cold front will be laying out across the region at the
beginning of the period. Some showers and thunderstorms may occur
with this feature as it moves in. With further destabilization in
the afternoon, there could be some additional development near this
boundary although forcing does not look particularly strong.
However, 12z model suite has a pretty good signal that convection
will become organized in the mid mississippi valley with the mcs
then moving across the region late Saturday night into Sunday.
A large upper level low will slowly track across ontario for the
first half of the week and then weaken and lift Thursday. This will|
result in cool conditions across the region through the rest of the
period. A short wave rotating around the upper low may bring some
showers and possible thunder on Tuesday.
Aviation 02z Friday through Tuesday
A vertically-organized area of low pressure will continue to
move east of the region through the first part of the taf
period. Scattered -shra on the backside of the low continue to
pivot southeast this evening, impacting mainly kcmh and klck,
but also kiln and kday with some very light -ra. As the surface
low pulls away from the area, expect greatest coverage of shra
to shift east by 06z. But for the next several hours, expect on-
and-off activity for kcmh and klck, which may lead to brief MVFR
vsbys and cigs. For southwest terminals of kcvg and kluk,
expect that MVFR CIGS will goVFR shortly as the surface ridge
axis approaches from the west. In fact, latest satellite depicts
the back edge of extensive cloud cover approaching within first
several hours of TAF period for these sites.
Main concern for the overnight period will be the
potential for MVFR vsbys due to br development, especially for
areas that see clearing a bit faster. Expect that this may be an
issue for western terminals, especially kluk, but cloud cover
should inhibit any br development at kcmh and klck.
However, there will be the potential for ifr CIGS at these sites
towards 12z as back edge of clouds may be a bit slower to move
Expect that TAF period will be dry for all sites past 06z.
However, models have hinted at the potential for some tsra
activity moving into western parts of area towards end of kcvg
30-hr period. Did not have confidence on timing or location to
include such activity in the forecast at this time.
Outlook... MVFR ceilings, visibilities, along with a chance of
thunderstorms possible Friday night into Monday.

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.
