Low pressure will move northeast through the lower ohio valley
today. Tonight a cold front will drop across the area from the
northwest. High pressure will then try to build in from the
southwest for the middle of the week as low pressure passes
north of the great lakes region.

Near term through Tuesday
Update... No changes to the forecast. Large swath of rain and
snow impacting much of the area expected to slowly move to the
east northeast through the afternoon hours.

Original... Low level moisture trapped under an inversion with
drier air aloft has allowed fog to develop with diurnal cooling.

Visibilities had dropped to a quarter to a half mile across a
large portion of the area but have actually improved a bit as
moisture advances into the area from the southwest. Will still
have a dense fog advisory for early today and chip away as
visibilities improve. Otherwise, radar shows rain moving
northeast into the area associated with developing low that will
move northeast through lower ohio valley today. Brought likely
to categorical pops into the southern and southeastern portion
of the area with smaller chances north. This system move east
tonight however a cold front will drop across the area from the
northwest in its wake. Continued with chance pops for snow.

Accums should be light. Tuesday colder air will continue to move
in with 850mb temps dropping to -10c or so by 18z. Winds back
from nnw to W through the day with should disrupt any lake
effect banding that tries to develop although with ample
moisture the first half of the day would expect light snow into
the snowbelt counties. Accums will again by generally light.

Highs today mid to upper 30s. Highs Tuesday more mid 30s.

Short term Tuesday night through Thursday night
Upper level ridge that has been locked in over the western united
states will gradually begin to advance east toward the eastern
united states by Thursday night. Strengthening upper level trough
will occur Wednesday before the upper level ridge has a chance to
eject the trough east and out of the region. An upper level jet
maxima is progged to move southeast across the local area by Tuesday
night and continue into Wednesday and it will bring with it some
moisture. However, the best jet dynamics don't appear to be
favorable for our area. Cyclogenesis will take place at the surface
northwest of the great lakes and the resultant low pressure system
will move southeast and deepen rapidly across the great lakes to
maine by Wednesday afternoon. This storm system will bring a threat
for some snow Tuesday night into Wednesday. The bulk of the
precipitation appears it will fall across the northern and eastern
portions of the forecast area. Little if any chance for snow is
expected across the south. Some residual lake effect will take place
Wednesday night. Then, as high pressure begins to build in from the
west, fair weather will return to the forecast area across the
entire area for Thursday into Thursday night. As high pressure
builds in from the northwest, a fair amount of cold air advection
will take place. This will cause low temperatures to plummet well
into the 20s each and even teens in the east. Highs each day will be
in the middle to upper 30s Wednesday and lower to middle 20s east to
mid 30s west for Thursday.

Long term Friday through Sunday
Over all upper level pattern will change from a tranquil pattern
Friday to another deep trough over the eastern united states. This
troughiness will become the dominant weather feature during the
extended period over the weekend. The upper level troughiness will
result in the development of low pressure north of north dakota that
will move southeast to the ohio valley region by Sunday morning.

Warm air advection will take place ahead of the low along with a
swath of moisture will will cause showers to develop Friday night
into Sunday. The low will then move to the DELMARVA coast and
rapidly intensify as upper level trough becomes negatively tilted.

This low will draw cold air advection south through the great lakes
region by Sunday night. Milder temperatures will return for the
weekend at the expense of more rain across the area.

Aviation 12z Monday through Friday
Widespread lifr fog and low CIGS will persist through morning
and possibly into the afternoon across much of the area. Rain of
a mixture of rain and snow will move northeast into the area
after 12z as low pressure tracks along a cold front in the
lower ohio valley. A cold front moves in from the northwest
overnight and should bring continued restriction in light snow.

Outlook... Expect non-vfr again Tuesday night as low pressure
moving through the central lakes drags another cold front
through the area. Non-vfr possible Wednesday and Wednesday night
cle eri yng cak in lake effect snow.

Winds will be fairly light through early Tuesday but will then begin
to increase resulting in the possibility for small craft advisory
conditions Tuesday into Wednesday evening. Low pressure will move
southeast across the area Monday night into Tuesday resulting in the
stronger winds and higher waves. High pressure will build into the
area Thursday and Friday causing winds to diminish and waves to
subside. Southerly winds will return by Friday and increase to 10
to 15 knots. This will push the higher waves up toward the canadian

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 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.
