AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Charleston WV 552 PM EST Sun Mar 7 2021
SYNOPSIS. High pressure through the middle of this week with a warming trend. Next frontal system late this week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 1245 PM Sunday .
A high pressure system will provide dry weather for tonight and Monday. Based on MOS guidance performance last night and Saturday, lowered overnight lows slightly and increased Monday afternoon highs slightly.
SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/. As of 100 PM Sunday .
Dry weather with a warming trend will continue with high pressure, upper level ridging, and southerly flow in place for the short term period. There may be a bit of a dip in the upper level ridging on Tuesday which could lead to some cloud cover building in for the day. Skies should gradually clear back out Tuesday night before clouds build back in throughout Wednesday as the next system finally approaches the area.
LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 1230 PM Sunday .
The next chance for precipitation is expected around late Wednesday night into Thursday. Models continue to show a fair amount of disagreement with this system and how it will affect the area. They generally agree in bringing a surface low up through the Great Lakes with its associated cold front approaching the region and bringing some rain to the area. Both the Canadian and ECMWF bring this front through the area Friday, however the GFS stalls the front and keeps most of the precipitation chances along the northern half of the area. Models show an upper level trough to the north of the area Friday into Saturday, however the ECMWF deepens this trough farther to the south into the area than the other models.
Models show a wave of moisture moving in behind the front, however the placement of this moisture over the area differs between the models with the ECMWF keeping it more to the south and the GFS more to the north. The Canadian and ECMWF then show high pressure moving in or to the north, potentially clearing out any chances for precipitation. The GFS on the other hand shows a surface low approaching the area from the west into Sunday bringing additional precipitation chances into the area.
Thursday will be the warmest day of the week with high temperatures in the 60s for much of the area with some locations potentially getting up into the 70s, and 50s for the higher elevations. As the system moves through, temperatures take a turn towards a cooling trend through the end of the long term period.
AVIATION /00Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 553 PM Sunday .
Surface high pressure will maintain VFR conditions through tonight with clear to mainly clear skies. As this high shifts to the southeast of the region by Monday, expecting surface winds to shift to SW at 5-10 kts for most of the day, but gusts to around 15 kts may occasionally occur during the afternoon hours when mixing is maximized. Otherwise, VFR conditions will continue through the end of the TAF period.
