Synopsis
Warmth, humidity, and daily thunderstorm chances will continue
through early week.

Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
Convective activity is on the wane with loss of shortwave support.

Warmth and humidity will remain in place overnight.

Short term 6 am Sunday morning through Monday night
Expect mainly diurnally supported isolated to scattered
thunderstorms Sunday and Monday as convective thresholds are again
met. With somewhat less instability from near pit and south, and weak
ridging, continued with lower isolated pops in this area, with
slightly higher pops scattered coverage north. With the instability,
heat and humidity, an isolated storm could be severe, though, again,
poor lapse rates should dampen this potential. Above average
temperature is expected to continue.

Long term Tuesday through Saturday
Zonal flow, north of a southern CONUS high, is expected to persist
across the region Tuesday. Shortwaves embedded in the flow should
maintain periodic shower and thunderstorm chances as warm and humid
conditions continue. A trough, and its associated cold front, are
expected to track from the upper midwest to the upper oh valley great
lakes regions by Wednesday. Included a period of likely pops with
fropa. Surface high pressure building under NE CONUS upper troughing
should return dry, cooler and less humid weather by Thursday and
Friday.

Aviation 00z Sunday through Thursday
Vfr is expected through the TAF period outside of any residual
evening convective activity.

Outlook
Aftn eve restrictions are possible Mon with an approaching cold
front.

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.
