Periodic showers and storms will continue into Friday until a cold
front brings cooler and much drier air for the weekend.
Near term through today
Line of convection continues to rush eastward ahead of impressive
shortwave trough. Trough will take all night to pass through, so low
pops will be maintained as moisture levels remain high, and lift
from the upper level wave will continue to fire scattered showers or
an iso storm.
Trough axis will take most of the morning to move into central pa,
and as the atmosphere will remains somewhat unstable, a popup shower
or storm is possible until the evening hours.
Forecast soundings are indicating that breaks in the cloud cover are
possible late this morning and during the afternoon. Increased
sunshine will allow for surface temperatures to approach convective
temps. This will necessitate the inclusion of thunder today, but any
convection would be rather isolated.
Short term tonight through Friday
The pattern changing cold front will begin to cross the north late
tonight. Scattered showers will develop along the boundary as it
drifts southward on Thursday. Deepening shortwave trough over the
upper midwest will shift into western ohio late in the day. This wave
will cause the front to stall somewhere over the southern half of the
fa. Models remain in disagreement where the boundary will stall, but
there has been a shift to the north over the last couple of runs.
Shortwave trough will glide along the stalled front Thursday night,
this energy will work to push the front southward, but will also
provide an increase in large scale lift, and thus more rain.|
Front will finally be pushed south of the area late Friday morning
as the main trough axis swings through the great lakes. Showers will
end from north to south Friday morning, but may linger over the
southern border until late in the day.
Much less humid air will dive southward behind the exiting showers.
Long term Friday night through Tuesday
As high pressure builds in behind the front, amid a broad upper-
level trough in the ERN conus, and dry air erodes any low-level
moisture, a seasonal weekend, and beginning of next week, is
anticipated, with little humidity and no rain.
Aviation 06z Wednesday through Sunday
Vfr largely expected for most of the night.
MVFR ifr restrictions may develop by early morning with increased
moisture from overnight convection.
Any morning low clouds or fog should give way to a return toVFR by
Periodic restrictions are likely through Friday morning as a series
of disturbances cross the region.VFR dry weather conditions will
return this weekend.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
