Short Term. (Today and tonight) Issued at 240 AM EDT Thu May 13 2021

Thursday morning sfc analysis shows an expansive Canadian 1030mb sfc high centered over Chicago/northern IL, influencing low level NE flow into our neck of the woods. Quiet wx will continue across the Ohio Valley as the sfc high slowly sags south and east by this evening. Hi-res forecast soundings and sky cover guidance agree well on seeing some afternoon diurnal cu develop as temps reach the mid- upper 60s (near 10 degrees cooler than climate normals for this time of year). Clouds should be scattered enough to keep mostly sunny to partly cloudy wording in forecast products.

Clouds should dissipate by sunset this evening, leading to clear skies and continued NNE light winds. Friday morning lows will bottom out in the low 40s, essentially limiting any frost potential.

Long Term. (Friday through Wednesday) Issued at 234 AM EDT Thu May 13 2021

Surface high pressure will be directly over the Ohio Valley by Friday morning. This high will slowly drift off to the east over the weekend, and as it does so, return flow on the back side of the high will allow for the return of southerly winds and warmer temperatures across southern IN and central KY.

By Sunday, an area of low pressure will eject into the Plains. A surface warm front associated with the low will pass through our region, but likely stall as it approaches central IL/IN/OH. An increase in low-level moisture (Td's) will be noticeable behind the passage of the warm front, as dewpoints will likely climb and stay in the 60s through much of next week.

Weak waves riding along the stalled frontal boundary will contribute to periods of active and wet weather early next week. With higher dewpoints present, there will be some instability in place to fuel thunderstorms, particularly at peak heating. In this kind of pattern, will have to keep an eye on the timing of some of these waves given the potential for organized convection.

The stalled frontal boundary looks to lift northward into the Great Lakes region by midweek. Long range guidance begins to amplify ridging across the eastern half of the U.S. at this point, but varies on the overall strength and extent of the ridge. Depending on where the ridge sets up, our pattern could turn relatively quiet and warm (ridge overhead) . or become quite active (ridge axis to our east). As a result, confidence in the forecast is quite low from the midweek timeframe onward.

Aviation. (12Z TAF Issuance) Issued at 640 AM EDT Thu May 13 2021

IMPACTS: VFR conditions through the forecast with northeast winds.

DISCUSSION: Clear skies this morning due to high pressure settling in over the Ohio Valley. Winds will remain out of the northeast through the forecast and range from 4 to 8 kts. Afternoon scattered cu expected primarily between 18z-00z today. No major changes are expected in the overall forecast and conditions.

CONFIDENCE: High on all forecast elements.
