AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Charleston WV 235 PM EDT Mon Apr 19 2021
SYNOPSIS. Frontal boundary drops in tonight, then lifts back north Tuesday, then passes Wednesday as a strong feature. High pressure late week, followed by rain sometime this weekend.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 150 PM Monday .
High based cumulus field developing at this hour. Isolated shower or two cannot be ruled out over the southern zones, but forecast is largely dry going into the evening hours. Upper level trough axis/vort max exits and flow becomes more zonal.
Meanwhile, cold front/pressure trough dropping into the CWA later this evening tonight, but the low/mid level forcing/f-gen will remain anafrontal and north of the boundary for the duration of the near term. No fog tonight with a modest wind lingering overnight. Cloud cover sinks southward into the Perry/Morgan area of southeast Ohio after 21Z Tuesday. Temperatures near normal for Tuesday across the region, although they fall slightly off the pace with the late clouds in SE OH. Mountains fall into a slight chance of showers late from a weak disturbance in the flow aloft south of the region.
SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/. As of 230 PM Monday .
A strong cold front will be nearing our northwestern zones on Tuesday night. The bulk of its progression through the forecast area will occur during the overnight hours into Wednesday with showers accompanying the boundary, proceeded by much colder air. QPF amounts continue to trend light with this event, which would impose very little rainfall accumulations for areas outside of the mountains.
The strong cold air advection will aid in a late burst of winter across the higher terrain after midday Wednesday, with rain changing over to snow showers amid falling temperatures. There remains some uncertainty with this late season snow event in regards to how much snow will accumulate due to warming ground conditions. We could also see a light dusting in Perry County early Wednesday morning, but the majority of accumulation will stay well west of the Columbus, Ohio area.
Cold air permeates over the area overnight Wednesday, which will likely yield a widespread freeze Thursday morning. Frost/Freeze headlines will most likely be warranted for this timeframe for areas in the CWA where the growing season has been declared started already this year. Temperatures will also bottom out nearing the conclusion of the short term period into Friday morning.
LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 230 PM Monday .
The beginning of the long term advertises much quieter weather returning to the Central Appalachians amid dominating surface high pressure and ridging aloft. Model consensus remains on track in regards to the next disturbance arriving this weekend, albeit a bit of a delay with onset timing. Details will be finessed over the next several days in terms of rainfall accumulation.
Another freeze is likely Friday morning with low temperatures dipping below freezing in our most sheltered valleys and our mountainous regions. A warming trend then ensues on Friday within the southwest flow ahead of our weekend system.
AVIATION /18Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 120 PM Monday .
VFR expected. Shortwave trough passing through generating some high based cumulus clouds. An isolated shower is possible, likely not at any of the terminals, but in the general area, especially over southern WV/southwestern VA. Winds 8-14kts today with gusts to 20kts at times through 23Z. Clearing overnight. No fog overnight with some wind likely remaining above 5kts.
