845 pm edt Mon mar 18 2019
While a few flurries or sprinkles are possible this afternoon
and evening, the next chance for more substantial precipitation
will be Wednesday evening.
Near term through Tuesday
Updated to linger clouds a bit longer across the southern
counties per satellite loops. Still expect coverage to wane over
the next few hours as instability lessens and surface high
pressure continues to build in. Radar returns are quickly
decaying as well, and removed all mention of flurries sprinkles.
Temperatures are in good shape and made only minor tweaks to
expected below-normal readings. Tuesday will be dry under high
pressure, with some cumulus possibly developing during the
afternoon. High temperatures, mainly in the 40s, will continue
to run below climatology.
Short term Tuesday night through Thursday
Although the high will remain across the region Tuesday night,
broad, weak low pressure will move over lower michigan Wednesday
night and into quebec by Thursday morning, dragging a weak cold
front across the region. While there will not be much of a
temperature difference behind the front, the dynamics with the
front are strong enough that the area of likely pops was
expanded farther south, from interstate 80 south to interstate
70. Some locations could receive a dusting of snow Wednesday
night, but otherwise temperatures will be too warm to allow for|
accumulating snow. Temperatures will remain slightly below
Long term Thursday night through Monday
While the surface front will pass to the east on Thursday, the
upper trough axis will be slower to push through, not arriving
until Friday morning. Have added some slight chance pops to the
forecast Thursday night into Friday to account for this. After
that, dry weather is expected until the next system from the
plains arrives on Monday. Temperatures will moderate over the
weekend, with highs rising into the upper 50s and 60s on Monday.
Aviation 01z Tuesday through Saturday
Cloud cover will dissipate through the overnight hours. Winds
aloft will become more westerly and moisture obtained from lake
erie will cease. Dry air will linger as high pressure builds to
our west.VFR conditions are expected to continue into
Flight restrictions are expected late Wednesday into Thursday
as cold front moves through.

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
