AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Charleston WV 214 PM EST Tue Feb 20 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure provides dry, mainly clear weather, with a warming trend, through Wednesday night. The next system crosses late in the week, bringing rain to the area.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
As of 1220 PM Tuesday...

High pressure system across the Northeast keeps tranquil and dry weather conditions tonight and Wednesday.

Winds turn southwest at the surface and aloft ahead of an approaching low pressure system Wednesday night. Winds will increase out the southwest late Wednesday night into Thursday.

Sub-freezing temperatures are expected again tonight, generally in the upper 20s. For Wednesday, plenty of sunshine, and southwest flow aloft will bring WAA to the area. Expect highs to reach the lower 60s across the lowlands, ranging into the mid 40s highest elevations.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/
As of 145 PM Tuesday...

Conditions remain dry Wednesday night, until an approaching open-wave disturbance/cold front brings a soaking rain and some isolated thunderstorms back into the forecast Thursday. PoPs will increase from west to east by early Thursday morning with most of the area under definite or likely PoPs during the evening hours. Some models show slight MUCAPE values along and near the front as a it slowly moves through, but this flat wave does not look to be as vigorous as previous systems; a few areas across SE Ohio may hear a rumble or two within some heavier bands of showers where the greatest forcing along the front will be.

QPF values are projected to be between 0.10" and 0.40" Thursday, with the higher amounts falling across SE Ohio. Heavier rain gets shunted up against the mountains Thursday night as the front slowly progresses. Heavier QPF values between 0.50" and 0.75" are possible across the eastern and southeastern WV mountains.

As a result, WPC already has a marginal risk for excessive rainfall across most of the forecast area on Thursday.
We may have some isolated to minor issues across usual trouble spots in the lowlands, but nothing significant stands out at this time. This could change if values become higher than they are currently.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/
As of 1135 AM Tuesday...

PoPs recede from west to east Friday behind the cold front with lingering showers, some snow showers, across the higher elevations. Drier conditions will move in across much of the western lowlands as a result of this exiting system. Rain largely moves out by early Saturday with storm total rainfall amounts(Thursday-Saturday) between 0.50" and 0.75" for most, with a stripe of locally higher amounts possible across the central portions of WV.

There remains a chance for snow showers across the mountains early Saturday with a shortwave disturbance. Minimal accumulations are possible across the highest elevations in the northeastern mountains. Portions of the lowlands could see some snow showers as well, but accumulations are not likely as temperatures will not be primed. This activity will shut off by Saturday night as a ridge builds in.

Dry conditions move in Sunday before another short wave moves in Monday. Chances of rain return to the area as a result.
Temperatures look to trend much warmer next week with a stationary front bringing some wet conditions and chances for storms by Tuesday. Will have to watch for water issues next week with this stationary system as these fronts can be a nuisance for excessive rainfall.

AVIATION /18Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
As of 1217 PM Tuesday...

Another CAVU conditions through the period as high pressure remains in control through Wednesday. A relaxed pressure gradient will allow for winds to go calm tonight. Winds turn light south southwest on Wednesday after 16Z.
