Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA 144 PM EDT Fri Aug 14 2020
SYNOPSIS. Precipitation chances will increase overnight and remain through the weekend with the best chance showers south of Pittsburgh Saturday afternoon. Dry conditions expected for much of next week with seasonable temperature.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Afternoon convection will be sparse at best as warm air aloft largely keeps a lid on things. Have removed mention of showers/storms from the forecast this afternoon with the exception of isolated coverage in the ridges. Temperatures will top out several degrees above normal.
SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. Scattered coverage of showers and thunderstorms is expected this weekend as a slow moving upper trough crosses and sfc low pressure passes to the south. With lower heights and increased cloud coverage, temperatures will fall to slightly below normal Saturday and Sunday. Models have tracked farther south with the sfc low, so have reduced PoPs and QPF considerably PGH and north.
LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. High pressure and a relaxed height pattern will support dry conditions through most of the long term.
AVIATION /18Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. With marginal instability focused over central Ohio, isolated showers may develop near ZZV; VCSH mentioned for this site. Capping, warmth aloft, east of the Ohio River will keep sites elsewhere dry.
A disturbance will advance northeast early tomorrow morning. Depending on the setup of low-level dry air, ceilings may maintain VFR till mid-day for PIT/AGC. HLG/MGW will likely fall rapidly to MVFR/IFR as rain showers prevail and the boundary layer quickly saturates.
Outlook. Restrictions are likely south of PIT into Sunday as the low pressure disturbance slowly tracks east.

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.
