UPDATE. The AVIATION section has been updated below.
SYNOPSIS. Issued at 313 PM EDT Thu Aug 6 2020
Temperatures will be on the rise over the next few days as the seasonably cool weather comes to an end. Dry weather will continue through the early weekend before a series of weak waves bring chances for rain and storms later this weekend and through much of the week next week. Best chances for rain currently looks to be next Monday.
NEAR TERM /Tonight/.
Issued at 313 PM EDT Thu Aug 6 2020
Dry conditions are expected for tonight as a ridge of high pressure persists across the area. Much like last night, a few areas of ground fog are possible, but generally should be brief and confined to favored fog formation areas such as river valleys. Lows will fall into the low to mid 50s again tonight with winds light and variable.
SHORT TERM /Friday through Sunday/.
Issued at 313 PM EDT Thu Aug 6 2020
High pressure will continue into the day Friday with slightly warmer temperatures than today. Dry conditions are expected through the day with some cumulus clouds during the afternoon and evening hours. This dry weather will continue into the night with the potential for more widespread fog than has been seen the last couple of days.
Small chances for rain move in Saturday night where latest model guidance is hinting at the potential for an overnight MCS that currently looks to stay to the west of the forecast area. Will keep low POPs through the night to account for any uncertainty in the track of the storms. Small chances for rain and a few storms continue into the day Sunday, but confidence is low in rain at any given location.
Highs will only reach into the low to mid 80s on Friday and Saturday followed by the upper 80s on Sunday. Lows will fall into the upper 50s and lower 60s Friday night and then only into the mid to upper 60s on Saturday night.
LONG TERM /Sunday Night through Thursday/. Issued at 238 PM EDT Thu Aug 6 2020
After the pleasant stretch of weather through the end of this week . a return to a warmer and more humid airmass is expected by late weekend through much of next week as the upper trough pulls away from the area and is replaced by quasi-zonal flow. This will also support a transition to a more active weather regime as well . highlighted by periodic threats for scattered convection as waves aloft drift through the zonal flow and across the Ohio Valley.
Appears the best threat for more widespread rain and storms comes Monday afternoon and evening as a frontal boundary drifts into the forecast area Otherwise. will carry a daily threat for isolated to scattered storms through the rest of the extended as the front meanders across the region and interacts with a moist and unstable airmass and the series of waves aloft.
Highs may get as warm as the low 90s in spots on Monday ahead of the afternoon convection Otherwise. expect near normal temps in the mid 80s next week. Lows will primarily be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
AVIATION (Discussion for the 070000Z TAF Issuance). Issued at 642 PM EDT Thu Aug 6 2020
VFR conditions are expected through the period, though brief restrictions in fog are possible at KLAF near sunrise.
High pressure will continue across the sites, keeping winds generally less than 10kt and some cumulus during the daylight hours.
Brief restrictions in fog are possible near sunrise at KLAF, but confidence is low. Used a patches of fog mention for now.

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.
