Surface high pressure settling into the great lakes region will
provide mild temperatures and dry conditions today with warmer
temperatures and just a slight chance of a shower in the far
south by Sunday evening. A warming trend will evolve towards the
beginning of the workweek with increased precipitation chances
Monday through Tuesday as a cold front progresses through the
region by midweek.
Near term through tonight
A tranquil near term period is on tap for the region as surface
high pressure drifts east through the great lakes region,
maintaining northeasterly surface flow which will keep drier air
in place through tonight. Although some patchy river valley fog
cannot be completely ruled out around sunrise, anticipate
mostly sunny skies today throughout the local area. Could see
some CU drift south into west central and central ohio past mid-
morning, but even this will likely be only scattered in nature.
Highs today will again be about 8-10 degrees below seasonal
norms -- especially after a rather cool start to the day as
temps in the mid 50s gradually top out in the mid to upper 70s.
A few spots may hit the 80 degree mark by late afternoon, but
with dewpoints in the mid 50s it certainly will feel cooler than
is typically the case with 80 degree temps in mid august. Lows
tonight will again bottom out in the mid 50s (north) to around
60 degrees (south), with a fairly rapid drop-off in temps
around and past sunset this evening.
Short term Sunday
By Sunday, the aforementioned surface high will migrate further
east of the region, allowing for southeasterly surface flow to
become established by Sunday afternoon. This will help initiate
better advection of moisture north into the ohio valley ahead of
a digging trof across the mid-missouri valley. The arrival of
this feature -- coupled with the subsequent passage of the
low mid level ridge axis -- will help initiate deep-layer
moisture transport north into the region. However, it appears
that as of right now, the best advection of such moisture will
still be far enough south west of the immediate local area that
only a slight chance of an afternoon evening shower will be
possible across mainly the tri-state area (and points further to
the south west). This slight chance of measurable precip will be
coincident with the infiltration of higher surface dewpoints as
the vertical profile gradually becomes more and more saturated
(progressively from southwest to northeast during the day
Highs on Sunday will be noticeably warmer -- with temps topping
out in the low to mid 80s with dewpoints reaching into the low mid|
60s by late in the day.
Long term Sunday night through Friday
Mid level short wave energy will eject east northeast across the
ohio valley Sunday night into Monday. This is ahead of a broader
and deeper upper level trough that will slowly shift east across the
upper midwest and great lakes region through mid to late week. The
initial short wave will lead to an increasing chance of showers from
the west Sunday night. A better chance of showers will then
overspread the remainder of our area through the day on Monday.
Instability appears to be fairly limited, so will only include a
slight chance of an embedded thunderstorm, mainly for Monday
afternoon. Highs on Monday will be in the 75 to 80 degree range.
A secondary mid level short wave, along with an associated cold
front, will the push across the region late Monday night and into
the day on Tuesday. This will bring another chance of showers and
thunderstorms for Tuesday into Tuesday night. Highs on Tuesday will
be mostly in the lower 80s.
Surface high pressure and a drier airmass will then build east
across the ohio river valley for mid to late in the week. This will
lead to dry conditions for Wednesday through Friday with afternoon
highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
Aviation 12z Saturday through Wednesday
Vfr conditions will prevail through the entirety of the taf
period, with some sct diurnally-enhanced CU stratocu possible
at northern terminals past mid-morning as some shallow low
level moisture works in from the northeast.
Light northeasterly winds of around 5kts will increase to around
10-12kts this afternoon before subsiding once again past
sunset. Winds will gradually go more easterly past sunrise
Cirrus will be on the increase from the southwest toward 12z
Sunday but otherwise clear skies are expected for the overnight
Outlook... Thunderstorms are possible on Monday and Tuesday.

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.
