AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Charleston WV 226 PM EDT Fri Apr 12 2024

SYNOPSIS
Showery and breezy through the day today. Heavy rain from yesterday continues to yield high water issues today. Quiet for Saturday into Sunday with storms possible Sunday evening.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/
As of 125 PM Friday...

Shortwave gradually moving across the south is bringing another slug of rain back into these areas, in addition with ongoing shower activity as we remain under influence of the upper trough. Gusty winds across the area today owing to tight pressure gradient and CAA across the area. Issued wind advisory earlier for locations expected to receive the higher gusts, mainly as an impact based advisory due to saturated soils and weakened trees from previous storms. Otherwise, any qpf from showers (or isolated storms today) should be relatively light, and could see periods of graupel with more robust showers or thunderstorms due to cold air aloft. Precipitation will transition to mainly light upslope later tonight into early Saturday across the mountains, before tapering off at the low moves farther away from the area, high pressure starts to build in, and flow becomes less favorable.

Saturday should overall be a nice day, with plenty of sunshine, and temperatures in the 60s across much of the lowlands.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/
As of 226 PM Friday...

The second half of the weekend remains dry as an upper level ridge slides through the Ohio Valley, attributing to rising temperatures in the process. Afternoon highs on Sunday are progged to return above their climatological norm, with the lowlands climbing into the upper 70s while our mountain zones reaching the 60s to low 70s. A warm front slips through the region during this time, and is anticipated to drape across our northern forecast periphery late Sunday night into the start of the new work week. This will set forth a chance for rain and embedded thunderstorms on Sunday afternoon, with severe weather being more contained along the front itself across southeast Ohio and the northern extent of West Virginia. Activity looks to be diurnally driven, dwindling in coverage after sunset Sunday night.

Similar temperature conditions are anticipated for Monday afternoon as the frontal boundary remains nestled in close quarters to the forecast area. The boundary may slide a bit southward, which plants shower and storm coverage further south in the coalfields during peak heating hours.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/
As of 226 PM Friday...

An evolving disturbance over the Four Corner Region is progged to promote the return of unsettled weather beginning on Tuesday into midweek. The low will emerge off the lee of the Rockies on Tuesday and will congeal with the stationary front still floating about in the Appalachia area. This will invigorate showers and storms in earnest by Wednesday into Thursday as a trailing cold front sweeps through the country. While pinpointing severe weather is still too far out within this forecast cycle, SPC has been advertising Day 4 and 5 potential for severe across the Central Plains as this front encroaches, so it will certainly an area to monitor heading into next week.

AVIATION /18Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
As of 134 PM Friday...

Widespread MVFR activity continues in low ceilings and occasional reduced visibilities in showers. Most of this precipitation will taper off after 03Z, with only a few light rain and snow showers across the higher terrain. In addition, will see gradual improvement to VFR overnight, with mountains slower to improve. Otherwise, gusty westerly/west-southwesterly winds will continue for much of the period, with occasional gusts in the 20 to 30 kt range across the lowlands, and the 30 to 40 kt range across the higher terrain.

Lastly, LLWS is possible across much of the area tonight, and this has been added to the TAFs.

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

FORECAST CONFIDENCE: Medium.

ALTERNATE SCENARIOS: Timing of improvement to VFR overnight may be slower than currently forecast.
