Synopsis
Periodic chances for light precipitation are expected through
the middle of next week with a series of crossing cold fronts.

Near term through tonight
No major changes were needed at 730am, as earlier precipitation
has pulled east, leaving a lull until the increase in frontal
precipitation later today.

Previous discussion...

a weak low will impact the region today with a mix of light
rain and snow developing initially along north of the i80
corridor by early evening and spreading east over the course of
the night as the associated frontal boundary crosses.

Precipitation will largely begin as rain or rain snow mix
farther north... Transitioning to mostly snow by the morning as
colder air aloft arrives. No significant accumulation is
expected.

Short term Monday through Tuesday
Precipitation chances will continue Monday and Tuesday as the
eastern CONUS remains under broad upper troughing... With a minor
shortwave on Monday followed by a Tuesday cold front. Forecast
soundings show temperatures aloft that are warm enough to
preclude any significant accumulations. Winds should pick up
Tuesday afternoon as the front crosses and gradient tightens up.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
Another front will drop south across the forecast area on
Wednesday but precipitation should remain largely north of
pittsburgh and in the ridges with limited moisture. A more
substantial push of cold air will follow the Wednesday front
and result in a relatively cold but dry thanksgiving.

Dry conditions continue Friday but temperatures are forecast to
pop back up closer to normal as ridging builds across the
region.

Aviation 13z Sunday through Thursday
Most terminals are starting off withVFR conditions this
morning, with some MVFR lingering at hlg and fkl. As a weak cold
front approaches today, moisture will increase again and MVFR
conditions will return for all terminals during the afternoon.

Light precipitation will develop from north to south as well,
mainly from later this afternoon into the evening. Condition
deterioration to ifr can be expected tonight as the front and
surface low cross.

Outlook...

periodic restrictions are likely through Wed with a series of
crossing cold fronts.

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.
