AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Charleston WV 118 PM EDT Thu Jun 20 2024

SYNOPSIS
The heat wave continues through the week courtesy of a broad upper level ridge. A cold front arrives late Sunday night into Monday, with showers and storms, and somewhat cooler weather.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY/
As of 1209 PM Thursday...

Ridge of high pressure will continue to remain in control through Friday, with above normal temperatures, and occasional showers and storms during peak heating hours. Bulk of any convective activity today should largely be confined to the mountains, but a better chance will exist on Friday, with a slight uptick in instability and moisture expected. As with previous days, bulk of any convection that is able to get going will dissipate with loss of heating, and storms will be slow to move, and contain brief heavy downpours.

After some patchy valley fog Friday morning, temperatures Friday afternoon will tick a few degrees higher.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/
As of 113 PM Thursday...

The hot and humid weather will continue on Saturday as the upper- level ridge remains over the East. Expect air temperatures to reach the middle 90s across the lowlands and the upper 80s to lower 90s across the mountains. With dew point temperatures expected to be in the upper 60s to lower 70s, it will once again 'feel like' the lower 100s for many. The chance of an isolated pop-up shower or thunderstorm cannot be ruled out in the afternoon as the heat bubbles up.

Sunday will be another hot day, but perhaps not as hot as Saturday.
High clouds will roll in from the northwest Sunday morning as a cold front slowly approaches from the Midwest and Great Lakes. More clouds than sun is expected by the afternoon, and most places will see chances of thunderstorms by late Sunday afternoon and evening.
The cold front will likely swing through overnight Sunday night, with precipitation chances increasing to 50-70% areawide. Heavy downpours are possible, as PWATS are projected to be anywhere from 1.5-2.0 inches areawide.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
As of 113 PM Thursday...

In the wake of the cold front, Monday will finally be a break from the intense heat. Many of the lowlands spots will see highs in the upper 80s with slightly lower humidity, thanks to a northwest wind in a postfrontal airmass. Unfortunately, this isn't going to last very long because models are showing another ridge building in from the west by Tuesday and Wednesday with temperatures rebounding into the middle 90s across the lowlands again. Chances of rain may return again next Wednesday as another front approaches from the west. Next Thursday is expected to be cooler again in the wake of a front.

AVIATION /17Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/
As of 117 PM Thursday...

Mainly VFR with light winds during the period. An isolated shower or storm with brief MVFR conditions is possible however across far northern southeast Ohio and the northern mountains through sunset. Otherwise, patchy river valley fog will develop again, mainly in deeper/favored river valleys, with brief MVFR/IFR or worse conditions, particularly at KEKN. Any fog will dissipate after 12Z for a return of VFR conditions with light winds.

FORECAST CONFIDENCE AND ALTERNATE SCENARIOS THROUGH 18Z FRIDAY...

FORECAST CONFIDENCE: High today and Friday. Low for fog tonight.

ALTERNATE SCENARIOS: Extent/duration of fog tonight may vary from the forecast.
