AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Charleston WV 117 PM EST Fri Mar 5 2021
SYNOPSIS. High pressure in the area through the middle of next week. Next frontal system late next week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 120 PM Friday .
Surface high pressure continues in control through tonight providing mostly clear skies and light and variable wind. With cold airmass in place and the expected cooling could bring tonight's temperatures into the lower 20s lowlands, ranging into the mid teens higher elevations.
Breezy conditions could return this afternoon but will will depend on how much wind can be mixed out by the lower atmosphere through the evening. Then, expect lower atmosphere to decouple for winds to become calm.
SHORT TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. As of 115 PM Friday .
Surface high pressure continues to hold over the area as upper level ridging moves in from the west. This will allow skies to remain mostly clear and for dry, quiet weather to continue for the area through the short term period. Saturday and Sunday night will both be cool with lows in the low to mid 20s for the lowlands and upper teens to lower 20s in the mountains. Sunday will continue to be on the chilly side with temperatures in the low to mid 40s for the lowlands and upper 20s to 30s for the higher elevations. Temperatures will warm up into Monday as flow transitions to become more southerly/southwesterly with much of the area getting into the 50s.
LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 1220 PM Friday .
High pressure and upper level ridging continue to remain in control Tuesday and Wednesday as dry weather persists through the middle of the week. Southerly flow will allow temperatures to gradually increase throughout the week, warming up into the mid to upper 60s for much of the area by the second half of the week.
The next chance for precipitation moves in for the latter half of next week as a system approaches from the west, pushing the high pressure out of the area. The models show a surface low from the southwest approach the Great Lakes and continue to move off to the northeast, staying to the north of the area. A cold front associated with the low gradually approaches the area through the week. The models have a generally similar path with this system, but do differ on timing a bit. The ECMWF brings a wave of moisture to the northern half of the area ahead of the system late Wednesday night while the Canadian and GFS continue to keep the area dry. The Canadian and GFS then bring the front through Friday with the ECMWF lagging slightly behind, bringing it through Friday night. Overall, have kept in chances of precipitation for the area for the end of the period.
AVIATION /18Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 1145 AM Friday .
Strong surface high pressure is responsible for the dry and cool weather through the period. Widespread VFR conditions are expected into the early morning hours Saturday. Winds will be mainly northwest at 10 knots or less, except for an occasional afternoon wind gust up to 18 knots mainly northern terminals.
Kept mentioned some LLWS at EKN tonight when sfc wind settles down and strong 850mb wind will be ongoing, so suggested 32030KT at 020FT flight level in the TAF.
