AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wilmington OH 144 AM EDT Sat Aug 15 2020
SYNOPSIS. Scattered showers and storms will remain in the forecast through Sunday before a cold front brings cooler and drier conditions to the region for the beginning of the workweek. Several days of drier conditions and below normal temperatures will evolve through the first part of next workweek.
NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. Remaining showers have been diminishing across the area. But still expect an increase in activity late tonight in the southeast counties. There is a risk of heavy rainfall in that area as cells will likely have little movement.
SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM SUNDAY/. The heavy rain potential will linger in the east/southeast through about mid-morning on Saturday before the best and most intense coverage drifts away from the region by the afternoon. Will see extensive clouds linger in the eastern third of the area through most of the day, with highs in central and south- central Ohio only getting into the mid/upper 70s. Further to the west near the OH/IN line, where conditions will be drier and skies a bit clearer by early afternoon, highs will top out in the low/mid 80s.
Will see some isolated/scattered diurnally-driven showers/storms develop back to the west of the main rain shield by the afternoon. This may align from NW/north-central OH through western OH/east-central IN, so will maintain chance PoPs to account for this expectation. The central part of the area, perhaps from near Wilmington and points to the south toward northern KY, may end up being mainly dry. However, will maintain slight chance PoP to account for isolated shower/storm potential.
Saturday night will be mostly dry -- except perhaps for the far western parts of the local area as activity wanes late in the evening. Will also see a cold front approach from the NW toward daybreak Sunday.
LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. The upper flow pattern will feature a ridge in the western U.S. and a mid level trough in the east in early next week, especially the Great Lakes and eastern Canada. An embedded s/wv and a cold front will keep a threat for showers/storms going on Sunday. These features exit east Sunday night. Highs will be in the upper 70s to the lower 80s with lows in the upper 50s to the lower 60s.
For the first part of next week, a northwest flow pattern will be in place. Temperatures will be a little below normal especially for lows (in the 50s). It will also be less humid. There is only low chances for a diurnal shower/storm during the period based on weak embedded disturbances or weak surface troughs.
By the end of next week, mid level height will rise, and thus, thermal fields will moderate. Highs will warm back into the lower to mid 80s and lows in the 60s. Low chance of rain will continue.
AVIATION /05Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Mid clouds remain across the region. But MVFR ceilings have been developing in parts of Kentucky and it appears that these will make it up into the Cincinnati area towards 11Z. It is possible that they could reach KILN but have kept that terminal VFR. Lower clouds will persist until close to 18Z and then scatter. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are forecast to develop in the afternoon and push westward. KDAY to KCVG/KLUK have the better chance of being impacted. Skies will then clear area wide after 00Z.
OUTLOOK . MVFR ceilings and visibilities likely late Saturday night into Sunday morning. Thunderstorms possible Sunday afternoon.
ILN WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. OH . Flash Flood Watch until 11 AM EDT this morning for OHZ073-074- 081-082-088. KY . Flash Flood Watch until 11 AM EDT this morning for KYZ098>100. IN . None.

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.
