Synopsis
High pressure will build into the region through Thursday,
bringing fair skies but cold temperatures. Temperatures will
moderate to near normal Friday, then climb above normal over
the upcoming weekend with mainly dry weather continuing.

Near term until 6 am Thursday morning
Goes16 showing a shallow layer of orographic stratocu clinging
to the spine of the alleghenies this evening. Model soundings
show inversion heights falling further overnight, as ridge axis
builds over the state. Thus, expect clearing skies over the
western mountains and continued clear skies elsewhere overnight.

Warming temps aloft and a westerly breeze will likely balance
radiational cooling in most spots with temps nearly steady or
slowing falling over much of the area. However, suspect some
protected valley locations that decouple will see temps falling
to near zero due to the fresh snow cover and clear skies.

Short term 6 am Thursday morning through 6 pm Thursday
Large scale subsidence between upper low passing off the east
coast and shortwave diving across the grt lks will provide fair
weather across central pa Thursday. Mostly sunny skies expected
for the bulk of the forecast area. However, a surge of increasing
low level moisture ahead of approaching shortwave will likely
cause increasing cloudiness across the northwest mountains by
afternoon.

Model soundings indicating a well mixed boundary layer to 925mb
Thursday afternoon. Mixing down ensemble mean temps of around -10c
from this layer should translate to MAX temps from the low 20s
over the highest terrain of the northwest, to the low 30s across
the lower susq valley. Bufkit soundings indicate Thursday will
become quite breezy, with west winds gusting to between
25-30kts across the southwest portion of the forecast area and
slightly lower winds over the northeast.

Long term Thursday night through Wednesday
High pressure moving off the southeast coast late in the week
will bring mild and dry weather to the area late in the week.

A deep low will swing a cold front across the area late Monday
and early Tuesday next week. Did slow the front down some, based
on new models.

Aviation 02z Thursday through Monday
There continues to be some lingering MVFR over my western
higher elevation terminals with even some very light snow
causing visibilities under 2 miles at jst. Drier air will limit
the extent of the low clouds moving out of the mountains, but
these high elevation sites may be stubborn to improve despite an
overall fair weather pattern.

It will be breezy with gusts in the 10-20 mph range.

Outlook...

thu... MainlyVFR. Breezy.

Fri-sun... MainlyVFR.

Mon... Reduced conditions with rain showers associated with an
approaching cold front.

Hydrology
The threat of ice jamming is diminishing. Dry and colder
weather into mid week will form additional ice as stream flows
and open channels decrease. Another warm up is expected by the
end of the week into the weekend with rain to accompany a
frontal system early next week. Dewpoints not fcst to be as
high as last Friday evening, so expecting less rain and runoff.

Ctp watches warnings advisories
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.
