SYNOPSIS
*Long duration and potentially dangerous heat wave this week *Near-record high temperatures 90+ degrees into the weekend

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
Still anticipate a gradual uptick in [isolated] convection over the NW Alleghenies this afternoon on the southern periphery of remnant MCV moving eastward across southern Ontario. SPC has maintained the MRGL risk SWO and recently sent MCD #1302 which included a portion of Warren County. The limited vertical shear generally <20kt and weak forcing for ascent suggest storm organization will remain limited and therefore a WW is not expected (20% probability). Recent radar loop showed a couple of t-storms developing near KBFD which is reporting a dewpoint of 70F. One of those storms briefly pulsed up over northern Elk County with a 50dBZ core reaching the -20C level, prompting a short duration SPS.

Isolated to scattered convection mainly over northwest PA should fade with loss of heating after sunset. Mostly clear skies, light wind and surging low level moisture will likely result in patchy valley fog late tonight. A muggy night with low temps in the 65-70F range or +10-15F above climo in most spots.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/
The heat and humidity are progged to build through midweek, as the center of the subtropical high lifts north over PA. Current guidance indicates heat indices will reach 95 to around 100F especially in the valley locations during the afternoons Tue- Thu. We extended the heat advisory through 8pm Thursday which aligns well with neighboring WFOs to the west, north, and east.

Model guidance continues to favor isolated to scattered diurnal t-storm risk Tue-Thu downwind of Lake Erie and over the higher terrain along the spine of the Alleghenies. Thursday looks like the hottest day of the period with maxT 90-95F or +10-20F above climo.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/
Medium range guidance continues to show that a prolonged heat wave will continue throughout at least early this weekend. A 595-600 dm 500 mb ridge looks to begin breaking down by late week, but temperatures will still easily reach the 90s across most of the region each day with heat indices in the upper 90s and low 100s.

Northern PA will stand the best chance of any afternoon/evening showers/thunderstorms through the period closer to an approaching upper trough and farther away from the core of the upper ridge. Better rain chances and possibly a reprieve in the heat could materialize by late weekend or early next week depending on the evolution of the aforementioned trough to our north/northwest.

AVIATION /19Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
TSRA/CB occurring across the Alleghenies, including BFD as a hot/humid airmass builds in. Have included VCTS through 20Z, but may amend with a TEMPO if additional upstream development continues. Could see some brief IFR/MVFR visibilities from these, but not expecting this to persist.

Elsewhere, VFR conditions are largely expected to prevail underneath south/southwest winds of up to 10 knots or so. Winds will diminish this evening with patchy fog possible, particularly in areas that get rain this afternoon. Have maintained MVFR reductions at BFD later tonight/early Tuesday morning.

Could see additional isolated to scattered storms early Tuesday afternoon over similar areas, but not expecting enough coverage at this time to warrant mention.

Outlook...

Wed-Sat...Predominantly VFR, with building heat and iso TSRA.
Density altitude concerns possible.
