AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wilmington OH 135 AM EDT Sat Aug 8 2020
SYNOPSIS. High pressure in the lower Great Lakes will slowly track southeast into the Ohio Valley on Saturday. The high will linger through Monday as it reaches the Appalachians and becomes more diffuse. Southwest flow will then take over and a threat for showers exists late Monday and overnight, with a better chance for rain expected Tuesday as an upper low takes shape over the Midwest.
NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. Just a few cumulus remain across the area with some thin cirrus drifting into the region. Light north winds will become even lighter. This may be result in some fog developing across the southern counties towards daybreak.
SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM SUNDAY/. Surface high pressure will remain overhead through the day on Saturday and slide southeast overnight. This will provide for dry conditions and a gradual warming trend as the flow eventually shifts to the south-southwest. Highs on Saturday will be within 2-3 degrees of 85, warmest in the southeast and coolest in the northwest. Overnight lows with a light surface wind and maybe some cirrus will bottom out right around 60 for most locales.
LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. High pressure is forecast over the Central Appalachians/Upper Ohio Valley as the extended period begins. H5 ridge looks like it will try to build back into the eastern Great Lakes on Sunday in the wake of a parting s/w. Although the low level flow becomes southerly on the backside of the departing high, dewpoints only start to rebound in Indiana on Sunday. Will keep Sunday dry as it looks like convection will stay just to the west. Highs will increase a little more, ranging from the mid to upper 80s in the Whitewater Valley/West Central Ohio to the lower 90s in the lower Scioto Valley/northeast Kentucky.
Sunday night into Monday, a closed H5 low will drop out of the Canadian Rockies into the Canadian plains. A cold front associated with the H5 low is forecast to push into the western Great Lakes on Monday. This will add surface forcing and should help with scattered thunderstorm development. Highs will remain above normal.
Tuesday into Wednesday, the region will be on the southern edge of zonal flow over the Great Lakes. This will allow some upper level forcing to affect the region, which will prompt diurnal convective development. Above normal highs in the mid 80s to lower 90s are forecast.
For the last part of the week, models diverge in the handling of the H5 flow. All the extended models try to build a ridge, but they leave some weakness over the Ohio Valley. There should be enough low level instability and upper support to continue diurnal convection both Thursday and Friday.
AVIATION /06Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Clear skies and light winds early this morning will likely lead to some fog development through daybreak. The best chance for this will be in the river valleys across the south and will allow for some IFR conditions at KLUK for a period this morning, with mainly just some MVFR vsby restrictions elsewhere. Otherwise, surface high pressure will lead to mostly clear skies through the remainder of the period.
OUTLOOK . Thunderstorms are possible on Monday through Wednesday.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
