Synopsis
Showers will plague the upper ohio region today with crossing
low pressure.

Near term /until 6 pm this evening/
The mid morning update included minor adjustments to pops based
on latest radar and hi-res model trends. Forecast remains on
track and previous discussion follows.

Low pressure is progged to track across the upper ohio/mid
atlantic regions today. Showers will thus persist until the
exiting system pulls a cold front across the area during the
afternoon and early eve.

Warm conditions will be maintained though until passage of that
front. Expect highs today about 10 degrees above the seasonal
averages despite clouds and precip.

Short term /6 pm this evening through Thursday/
As high pressure moves over the great lakes, cooler and drier
air will filter over the region. Despite the temperature
moderation, readings a few degrees above the averages can be
expected.

Rain chances are expected to increase again by late Thursday
with the advance of the next low.

Long term /Thursday night through Monday/
Another emerging plains closed low is forecast to spread rain across
much of the eastern CONUS during the latter half of the week. Expect
a brief period of dry weather behind that system next weekend before
redeterioration for the start of the work-week. Seasonal temperatures
are expected for the period.

Aviation /14z Tuesday through Saturday/
Rain showers will expand in coverage this morning as low pressure
crosses the region with MVFR conditions expected. A period of ifr is
also likely around dawn for the terminals along and north of the low
track. These restrictions will be mainly in ceilings, though some
reduction in visibility is anticipated in heavier showers/fog
through mid morning. While some improvement is expected through the
day, MVFR conditions should linger for the duration of the 24-30hr
forecast.

Light and variable wind direction will shift to wnw with the passage
of the cold front late this afternoon.

Outlook... Restrictions are likely again by late week as another
broad low affects the upper ohio valley.

Pbz watches/warnings/advisories
Md... None.

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.
