AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Charleston WV 420 AM EDT Tue May 11 2021
SYNOPSIS. Weak cold front crosses today. High pressure builds in and remains in place through the end of the week, amid weak upper level systems crossing.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 420 AM Tuesday .
A cold front entering the forcast area first thing this morning will cross from northwest to southeast today. While this is a reinforcing front with no moisture feed ahead of it, it is managing to squeeze out light rain just behind it in central Ohio, and a slight chance is coded along and just behind the front, in a narrow band moving across northern portions of the forecast area.
Clearing progresses from northwest to southeast in the wake of the cold front tonight, but only so far, as a southern stream low pressure wave holds it up south, and even brings a slight chance for rain showers to southwest Virginia overnight.
Temperatures close to central guidance, just low enough for the freeze watch in the northern mountains overnight tonight. The potential for frost across the northern lowlands will depend upon how quickly it clears and decouples.
SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/. As of 339 AM Tuesday .
An expansive surface high centered in the Great Lakes region will provide dry and cool conditions on Wednesday. Despite mainly sunny skies and the strong mid May sun angle, highs will be about 10 to 15 degrees below normal given the cool northerly flow in place.
With clear skies, light winds, and decoupling for many locations across the forecast area, favorable radiational cooling conditions are expected on Wednesday night. As a result, frost will be possible, especially for areas north of I-64 but overnight lows across the southern parts of the forecast area may remain just warm enough to preclude any frost potential. Also can't completely rule out freeze conditions in parts of the northern mountains, but temperatures might be on the marginal side for a freeze. Regardless, it will be a cold night so frost and possibly even freeze headlines may be needed for parts of the area. Thus, will maintain mention in the HWO to highlight this potential for now.
With high pressure remaining in control for Thursday, mainly dry conditions are expected once again. However, a weak upper trough moving eastward across the TN valley may provide enough support for a few light showers, mainly across southern portions of the forecast area. While confidence is not very high in the development of any showers, will keep slight PoPs in the forecast for now across southern WV and southwest VA but the overall dry nature of the air mass should pretty much keep all areas dry.
LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 339 AM Tuesday .
As the sprawling aforementioned high pressure system begins to gradually shift east of the area and off the mid-Atlantic coast this weekend, temperatures will gradually moderate late this week and through the weekend as return flow should bring temperatures pretty close to normal values by Sunday. Meanwhile, despite high pressure in control at the surface, a series of upper disturbances embedded in the northwest flow aloft may support several opportunities for showers and storms Friday and through the weekend. Given differences in timing/strength of these disturbances, will mainly keep low PoPs across the region late week and through the weekend. The more unsettled weather pattern is then expected to continue into early next week as deeper moisture returns to the area and additional disturbances arrive.
AVIATION /08Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 200 AM Tuesday .
Primarily VFR conditions prevail, as a weak cold front crosses through Tuesday morning. This will bring nothing more than an unimpactful light rain shower. Clouds associated with the cold front should preclude fog formation for the most part overnight. However, the saturated nocturnal air may lead to fog and even MVFR stratocu in the mountains for a time.
Otherwise, high pressure building in behind the cold front Tuesday will continue to provide VFR conditions into Tuesday night.
Light and variable surface flow overnight will become northwest behind the front on Tuesday, and may be a bit gusty in the afternoon, before slowly diminishing Tuesday night. Light north to northwest flow aloft overnight will become light northwest Tuesday, and then light north Tuesday night.
FORECAST CONFIDENCE AND ALTERNATE SCENARIOS THROUGH 06Z WEDNESDAY . FORECAST CONFIDENCE: High. Low for fog. ALTERNATE SCENARIOS: A few light rain showers may occur overnight. CIGs/VIS at BKW and EKN may vary depending on whether or not fog develops overnight.
