AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Charleston WV 317 AM EDT Sat Aug 8 2020
SYNOPSIS. High pressure for the weekend with a rising temperature trend. Becoming rather humid by the middle of next week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 245 AM Saturday .
Surface high pressure in control along with very dry air above the boundary layer and an inversion that will likely remain in place despite mixing today will all help contribute to a mainly dry day across the CWA. The exception will be in the northeast mountains in the highest ridges where isolated convection may be able to form with a slightly greater moisture depth in the lower levels. The temperature trend continues its slow upward ascent with 850mb temperatures in the 14-16C range. Should stay below 90 for the most part, but the mid to upper 80s in the lowlands should be expected with the flat cumulus field in place.
SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 315 AM Saturday .
Sunday should be fairly dry and quiet with ridging in the upper levels and high pressure at the surface. High pressure moves off on Monday with flow becoming more southerly. Moisture and instability will increase as several shortwave disturbances approach the area making afternoon showers and storms likely both Monday and Tuesday.
Temperatures will be above normal during the short term period with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s throughout the lowlands and 70s to 80s in the higher elevations. Lows in the lowlands range from mid 60s to low 70s while the mountains reach lows of upper 50s to mid 60s.
LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 315 AM Saturday .
The long term pattern continues to be active with daily chances for diurnal convection. By midweek, a front is expected to stall out over the region and remain through the end of the week. Enhanced storm activity would likely occur near the front, with potentially heavy rainfall and gusty winds possible in that area.
With flow from the southwest continuing to bringing warm, moist air into the CWA, humidity is expected to increase during the long term period and temperatures will likely remain above normal.
AVIATION /07Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 135 AM Saturday .
Have some hit or miss formation of VFR 4-6kft clouds, helping to slow valley fog to an extent across the region. Will go forward with LIFR or worse valley fog given the current satellite imagery despite the aforementioned clouds. Fog lifts after 12Z, and get a SCT flat cumulus deck 4-5kft with little vertical development due to very dry air above the boundary layer. Winds at the surface less than 10kts through the entire TAF period.
FORECAST CONFIDENCE AND ALTERNATE SCENARIOS THROUGH 06Z SUNDAY . FORECAST CONFIDENCE: Medium to high.
ALTERNATE SCENARIOS: Timing and intensity of fog may vary overnight.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
