A long wave trough over the the great lakes and eastern canada
will deepen across the region today into Tuesday. This feature
will keep it cooler than normal into Wednesday. Scattered
showers and thunderstorms will be across the region today and
Tuesday, especially across the northern part of the keystone
state during the afternoon hours. A warm up and return of
higher humidity levels will occur on Thursday, as high pressure
moves off the east coast. While temperatures will average
closer to normal for the second half of the week, there will
still be a chance for a few showers and thunderstorms from time
Near term until 11 am this morning
There will be a chance for a few showers this morning, mainly
across northern pa, given the cold air aloft.
Short term 11 am this morning through 6 pm Tuesday
Minor changes made to the fcst package.
Today and Tuesday look similar to the weekend, with mainly an
afternoon shra tsra passing quickly across the region. The
showers and storms will be most numerous across the NRN tier.
Temperatures will be colder aloft today and Tuesday, so expect
more in the way of clouds and cooler temperatures, especially
on Tuesday. Given how cold it is aloft, a shower or two will be
possible after sunset this evening.
Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
The trough will lift out and leave a more zonal pattern by
wed. As the high moves off the east coast by Thursday, a
southwest flow of warmer air will work into the area.
Expect MAX min temps to rise above normal levels for the
weekend along with an increase in convective activity -
especially over NW half of cwa. Convection will be more
scattered over the se.
Still a tendency to have an abnormally strong jet across|
the northwest states so far this warm season. While this
may allow a warm up at times, the weather pattern is very
active for late june.
Aviation 07z Monday through Friday
Isolated light showers behind the front continue to move along
the pennsylvania and new york border. Have left vcsh in bfd. Any
showers could increase chances of ifr CIGS and vsbys. Though any
ifr CIGS vsbys will be intermittent. Have MVFR CIGS and vsbys
beginning between 08z to 10z and continuing to shortly after
Otherwise generallyVFR tomorrow, with winds picking up by late
morning or early afternoon. Showers will also develop tomorrow,
again mainly across the north. Only at kbfd have I included
categorical shra during the mid late day hours, as coverage
elsewhere too low to mention at this time.
Tue... MainlyVFR, but scattered afternoon shra tsra north.
Thu-fri... MainlyVFR, but isolated scattered afternoon shra tsra.
Kccx radar has been brought back on line temporarily (as of
Sunday afternoon), but further outages are expected through at
least this evening. This outage is allowing the technicians to
install the first of 4 major service-life extension upgrades.
The work on the radar has been scheduled to minimize potential
impacts to operations.

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.
