Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA 116 AM EST Sat Dec 14 2019
SYNOPSIS. Widespread rain is expected tonight and Saturday with crossing low pressure. Rain will mix with, and eventually change to snow showers later Saturday.
NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. Updated for precip timing and temperature trends based on the latest radar, observations, and near term model trends.
Previous . Light rain will gradually increase in both coverage and intensity as moist advection ensues in SW flow on the van of an encroaching shortwave trough. With modest upper support for ascent and the presence of deep layer moisture within the boundary layer, precipitation should generally increase to a more steady, moderate rainfall as the night progresses.
SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. As the shortwave deepens and cold advection prevails, rain should change to snow late Saturday. No significant accumulation is expected, though colder areas across the higher terrain could see a couple of inches.
Snow shower chances should continue in the ridges Sunday with prolong upsloping and residual low-level moisture. A sfc trough advancing across Lake Erie/NW PA may initiate scattered snow showers near I-80. High pressure should return dry weather Sunday afternoon, though snow chances return late night with another approaching Central CONUS trough and associated sfc low.
LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Rain and snow chances return Monday and early Tuesday as the trough and sfc low track across the region. With NW flow prevailing Wednesday through Thursday isolated snow showers could linger due to lake enhancement and upsloping.
AVIATION /06Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. IFR in rain is expected to become widespread through much of the day as a shortwave trough and associated low pressure track across the area. The low is progged to be across NY this afternoon, with backing wind and cold advection on the wrn side. Rain should mix with and eventually change to snow this aftn/eve, with continued IFR. The upper trough axis should shift east tonight, with scattered snow showers and some improvement to low end MVFR.
A tightening pressure gradient on the wrn side of the low should result in gusty W-NW wind this afternoon and evening.
Outlook. Restrictions are likely again on Monday and Tuesday with the crossing of another low pressure system.

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.
