AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Charleston WV 154 PM EDT Sun Apr 5 2020
SYNOPSIS. Scattered showers today as a weak cold front slowly passes overhead. Unsettled early through mid week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 145 PM Sunday .
Weak cold front stumbling down into the forecast area today will be accompanied by scattered showers and perhaps a rumble or two of thunder in our extreme eastern zones. The front will be nudged southward through the period as high pressure builds into the Great Lakes region, with clearing skies possible across portions of southeast Ohio and northern West Virginia by Monday afternoon. South of the front, moisture remains in earnest and will take additional aid from daytime mixing in order for clouds to scatter out later on into the afternoon. A few lingering showers can't be ruled out as well on Monday.
Temperatures this afternoon will rise into the upper 60s/low 70s for the lowlands and mid 50s for the higher ridgetops amid showers and increasing cloud coverage. Monday temperatures will be slashed by a only a degree or two in response to the weak cold front hovering overhead.
SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 300 AM Sunday .
Decaying front sags into southern counties Monday with a few lingering showers possible. S/W ridging builds north toward the region Tuesday as a weak mid level system scoots by with scattered showers and a few storms. Another mid level system crosses late Tuesday into Wednesday with additional showers and a few storms. It will remain mild through the period.
LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 305 AM Sunday .
A potent s/w trof will amplify into the upper Midwest and Great Lakes Thursday and Friday driving a fast moving cold front through the area with another round of showers and a few storms. Cooler air will be ushered in Friday as transient weak surface high passes to the north. A more significant system looks to cross at some point this weekend as the mean longwave trof amplifies across the eastern half of the country. Should this indeed occur, we would be looking a decent cold shot for early next week.
AVIATION /18Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 145 PM Sunday .
Scattered showers and clouds roaming the region this afternoon will continue into the end of the Zulu day, but will inflict little to no flight restrictions under current VFR conditions.
Weak cold front crossing through slowly crossing through the region overnight into Monday will cause clouds to lower overnight at all terminals to MVFR or lower in the case of the mountains. Daytime mixing after sunrise Monday will aid in lifting and scattering out widespread MVFR cloud bases for the concluding hours of the current TAF period.

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.
