SYNOPSIS. Surface high pressure over the Great Lakes will build into the Ohio Valley into the weekend, with cool northerly flow keeping temperatures a few degrees below normal. Warmer air returns into early next as the high shifts to the east. Dry conditions prevail through the period.
NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/. Dry conditions are expected through the near term. Cloud cover across central Ohio will continue to decrease overnight. Winds will also continue to decrease. Decreased temperatures slightly to account for current trends.
SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/. Surface high pressure continues to build into the region Friday and Friday night. Temperatures will peak in low to mid 40s Friday afternoon, then drop into the mid 20s Friday night.
LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. An extended period of dry conditions is forecast across the region through the middle of next week.
A positively tilted H5 trough positioned over the eastern CONUS will feed in colder and drier air across the Ohio Valley to start the weekend. With the trough digging further south and becoming more amplified, Saturday will likely offer us the coldest temperatures of the extended period. High temperatures remain in the upper 30s to middle 40s with lows dipping into the 20s once again.
The slower propagating trough has kept temperatures trending slightly lower on Sunday - only a couple degrees warmer than Saturdays temps. However, will start to observe a shift in the pattern late Sunday as the downstream portion of the ridge sitting over the Midwest propagates eastward. This will keep a broad surface high pressure planted across the region, with southerly flow allowing for temperatures to trend well above average through at least the middle of next week. Highs are beginning to trend a degree or two warmer in the blend for Tuesday and Wednesday, with most locations now climbing to values at or above 60 both days.
The H5 ridge will begin to shift eastward by the middle of next week. As upper-level energy feeds in from our west and deep layer moisture is advected into the region, ensembles suggest a pretty good chance at rainfall returning to the fa beginning late Wednesday into Thursday now - shifted back by nearly 6-12 hours or so compared to previous model runs. Will start to trend with likely PoPs across several counties during this period based on a favorable atmospheric setup. Will continue to rework PoPs during this timeframe late next week once confidence grows on timing/location of this system.
AVIATION /03Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. High pressure will allow for dry conditions across the TAF sites through the TAF period. Clouds primarily across KCMH and KLCK will begin to decrease in coverage during the overnight hours. Winds will also decrease some during the overnight hours. A few additional cu in addition to high clouds will be possible on Friday.
