Synopsis
A cold front will move through the region late in the overnight
and into the morning on Friday. High pressure will then briefly
move into the region, however another disturbance is expected
to bring additional precipitation chances to the region for
Saturday.

Near term until 6 am this morning
A round of much less organized thunderstorm activity will push
in to southern CWA from the southwest this evening and slowly
move east tonight. Increased the chances of storms here and
lowered significantly elsewhere behind the earlier line of
storms. Temperatures were adjusted for a few hours this evening
given the cooler post-thunderstorm atmosphere for the i-71
corridor, but are expected to rebound to be fairly uniform with
overnight lows in the upper 60s to around 70. The threat for
this second round of storms to produce any damage is minimal but
will be monitored through the evening.

Short term 6 am this morning through 6 pm Saturday
Dry conditions are expected for much of Friday and into Friday
night. A quick moving upper level disturbance will approach the
region late in the overnight Friday night and therefore
introduced some precipitation chances across northwestern
portions of the area. Went close to conshort and superblend for
temperatures during this time.

Long term Saturday night through Thursday
Period begins with a h5 S W swinging through the SRN great lakes.

Extended models still are showing a range in their QPF forecasts.

The NAM is the driest, with very little QPF produced while the
canadian hemispheric carries the most. Will continue with a
north south gradient in the pops, going from 30 in the north to 10
in NRN ky. Highs will be seasonal ranging from 80 to 85
degrees.

The S W pulls away Saturday night, allowing high pressure to build
in at the surface. The high will keep the region dry Sunday into
Monday. By Tuesday, models drop energy into the region from the
great lakes, bringing scattered thunderstorms. Cold front will drop
through the region Tuesday night lowering pcpn chances from N to s.

There are timing differences so kept pops across the entire fa
Tuesday night.

Front will gradually pull away from the from region on
Wednesday, bringing an end to the pcpn threat.

Aviation 06z Friday through Tuesday
In the wake of showers which have largely pushed away from the
taf sites, an area of ifr MVFR stratus has formed along i-71 and
is impacting day iln cvg luk, and am expecting this to
spread develop into the cmh lck terminals as well soon. This
area of stratus on the back edge of shield of mid higher level
cloud but there is a back edge that will be progressing east
albeit slowly given still high boundary layer moisture as weak
cold front works through the area. So through sunrise have hit
low clouds and minor reductions to visibility hard in the newest
taf issuance. With sunrise, vertical mixing will increase and
winds will become gusty especially at wind prone sites like day.

This will serve to break up lift any residual low clouds and
expect a scattered cumulus deck to form, which may be broken in
coverage for a time at some sites, but for now running
scattered. ExpectVFR conditions past about 13 or 14z. Next
weather system will spread mid high level clouds toward the taf
sites on Friday evening.

Outlook... Thunderstorms are possible on Saturday, and again on
Tuesday.

Iln watches warnings advisories
Oh... None.

Ky... None.

In... None.

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.
