SHORT TERM /Today through Monday/.
Upper flow pattern transitions from northwesterly to weak ridging through the short-term forecast period as a large surface ridge builds into the region. Near seasonal normal highs today and a bit above tomorrow, but persistent dry low-level airmass allows overnight lows to drop below normal tonight/Monday morning.
LONG TERM /Monday Night through Saturday/.
The forecast area remains in a strong northwest upper flow through the middle of the upcoming week After that. the flow flattens and transitions into a more west to southwest pattern. Models in good agreement through Friday . but start to diverge at the very end of the period. Strong high pressure aloft centered in the northern Gulf should keep the deeper moisture to our north and west A cold front drifts into the OH Valley on Friday. but depends on the evolution of a Great Lakes trough. At this time the models are undecided on whether to deepen the trough or build the ridge over the Great Lakes For now. have taken the dry approach and kept pops out through Saturday.
Looking at widespread area of sub-25% relative humidity values again this afternoon, essentially covering the entire forecast area. Duration and 10-hour fuel moisture conditions favorable for a Fire Danger Statement for all of our counties. Highly likely we will need another statement for Monday as well as low-level moisture remains limited and temperatures continue to moderate. Wind speeds should remain below criteria to elevate this to Red Flag conditions.
