AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Charleston WV 816 PM EDT Sun Jun 16 2024

SYNOPSIS
A prolonged heat wave builds through next week amid mainly dry weather courtesy of an upper level ridge. The chance for isolated showers or storms returns on Monday and Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/
As of 800 PM Sunday...

Adjusted overnight temperatures a couple (to few) degrees lower across portions of the CWA Lows tonight bottom out in the 60s across the lowlands, with mid 50s to low 60s in the mountains.
The rest of the forecast remains on track.

As of 445 PM Sunday...

Made minor tweaks to temperatures and cloud cover into early tonight. Additionally, have taken out the chance for ISOL SHRAS/TSTMS across our far southwest zones this evening. The latest NUCAPS soundings indicate significant dry air in the low/mid levels. This should keep most, if not all of the area dry this evening, with perhaps just the potential of a highly isolated shower or two. The rest of the forecast remains on track.

As of 145 PM Sunday...

Key Point:

* Heat indices will reach the lower 100s across parts of the lowlands Monday afternoon. With an extended stretch of unseasonably hot weather on the way, make sure to keep heat safety in mind, and take frequent breaks in the air conditioning if possible.

It's turning out to be quite a hot Sunday with temperatures reaching the upper 80s across the lowlands, even approaching 90 degrees in some spots. The lower 90s are expected later this afternoon. Dew point temperatures are reaching the lower to middle 60s, making the air feel more humid. Pop-up showers and thunderstorms can't be ruled out this afternoon, mainly across our southwest Virginia counties, where CAPE is a bit higher and a field of cumulus is currently developing.

Quiet conditions are expected overnight. Another hot day is expected Monday with more scattered showers and thunderstorms developing by the afternoon. Dew points will reach the lower 70s and temperatures will reach the lower 90s across the lowlands, making it a high CAPE environment with low shear. Severe weather is generally not expected, but we can't rule out a few tall thunderstorms producing isolated damaging wind gusts. Heat index values will likely reach the upper 90s and lower 100s across the lowlands. Upgrades from Excessive Heat Watch may be needed either overnight or Monday morning for the upcoming hot weather on Monday afternoon.

In addition, it's important to practice heat safety. Make sure to drink plenty of water and electrolyte containing beverages if spending extended time outside. In addition, it's important to apply sunscreen and take frequent breaks in the shade or the air conditioning to cool off. Make sure to frequently check on the elderly and those more susceptible to heat related illness.
Never leave pets or children unattended in vehicles during this hot stretch.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/
As of 113 PM Sunday...

Key Point:

* Excessive Heat Watch continues Tuesday through Friday.

For Tuesday, broad upper level high pressure overhead will block any shortwave energy to move over our area, providing mostly clear skies through the period. At the surface, high pressure to our east maintains southwest flow, which continues to bring moisture and warm air advection to the area on Tuesday. The moisture, with temperatures rising into the mid 90s, will produce strong bouyancy. Dewpoints in the lower 70s, PWATs around 1.8 inches, under high CAPE; low shear environment will support isolated pulse thunderstorms, some with strong updrafts Tuesday afternoon. Therefore, locally heavy downpours can be expected Tuesday afternoon. Models that bring precipitation on Tuesday are the NAM, RAP13 and GFS. Any convection that manage to develop will quickly dissipate by sunset. Added PoPs and thunderstorms to the forecast for Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Under mostly clear skies, outside afternoon showers or storms, highs on Tuesday are expected to rise into the mid 90s. With dewpoints in the lower 70s, heat index values will reach the triple digits at some spots across the lowlands. Therefore, an Excessive Heat Watch remains in effect. It is anticipated that a Heat Advisory will be required for Tuesday at this point.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
As of 115 PM Sunday...

Key Point:

* Excessive Heat Watch continues through Friday.

Persisting high pressure will remain in control Wednesday through Friday, continuing with dry and hot weather. High pressure eventually loosens its influence over the area and begins to recede south next weekend, bringing chance for precipitation over the weekend.

Daily high temperatures across the lowlands will increase from the mid 90s on Wednesday, into the upper 90s by Friday. Over the mountains, highs should be from the mid 80s to low 90s. Meanwhile, heat index values are expected to climb into the upper 90s to low 100s for the lowlands again Wednesday through Friday afternoon.
Additional Heat headlines will be required through this period.

As temperatures turn hotter, a few heat safety tips to remember are: * Drink plenty of fluids * Wear light, loose fitting clothing * Take breaks in the shade or air conditioned locations * Never leave children or pets in an unattended vehicle * Check on elderly or heat sensitive individuals

AVIATION /00Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
As of 800 PM Sunday...

Conditions will remain largely VFR overnight. The one exception may be EKN with MVFR/IFR/LIFR fog later tonight. Additionally, a few ISOL showers are possible later tonight across the area.
The chance for ISOL showers and even thunderstorms continues on Monday, particularly in the afternoon/evening. While mainly VFR conditions persist, brief MVFR/IFR VSBY restrictions are possible within heavier showers or any thunderstorms, along with gusty winds. The chance for rainfall exists area-wide, but will be slightly favored in/near the higher terrain. Given location/timing uncertainty, showers or thunderstorms have not been coded into most TAFs for the time being.

Calm or light S/SSE surface flow is expected overnight. Occasional breezes to 15-20 kts are possible in/near the higher terrain into early tonight. Expect light winds from the southwest or southeast on Monday.

FORECAST CONFIDENCE AND ALTERNATE SCENARIOS THROUGH 00Z TUESDAY...

FORECAST CONFIDENCE: High tonight, medium with any showers or storms on Monday.

ALTERNATE SCENARIOS: Brief MVFR/IFR visibility restrictions could occur on Monday with ISOL showers or thunderstorms.
