AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wilmington OH 304 PM EDT Sun Apr 18 2021

SYNOPSIS. A mid level disturbance will pass just south of the region tonight. Surface high pressure will make a brief visit to our region on Monday, providing dry and seasonably warm temperatures. A cold front will move south into the area Monday night and then stall. Low pressure is forecast to track along the front Tuesday night with much colder temperatures expected once the low passes.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM MONDAY MORNING/. A mid level disturbance will pass just south of the region tonight. This system will bring some clouds along with a slight chance of showers near our far southwest CWFA. A weak surface ridge will then extend into the Ohio Valley late. Lows will range from the upper 30s to the lower 40s.

SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. A dry day is expected on Monday ahead of an advancing cold front to our northwest. Low level winds will increase from the west/southwest between the departing surface ridge to the east and the aforementioned cold front to the northwest. There should be plenty of sunshine with mainly diurnal cumulus clouds expected. It will be seasonably warm with highs in the mid and upper 60s.

For Monday night, models continue to differ on how far south an advancing cold front will get into our region. The NAM advances the front the least (furthest north, the GFS the most (furthest south), and the CMC/ECMWF are about the same (in the middle). This calls for a blended approach which places the front somewhere between I-70 and the Ohio River toward Tuesday morning. Low to mid level forcing remains well behind the front, so we may escape without any pcpn overnight. However, clouds will be on the increase behind frontal passage. Lows will fall into the lower 40s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Several weather systems are expected during the long term time period. Tuesday will start out dry. There will be a boundary across the area during the day on Tuesday. Models are still trying to resolve the exact location of this boundary for Tuesday afternoon, however in general expect it to be near the I-70 to I-71 corridor. An area of low pressure will ride up along this boundary and some light shower activity will be possible near and northwest of this boundary during the afternoon hours on Tuesday. With the boundary, there will be a range in temperatures on Tuesday and tightened up the gradient. A few temperatures will struggle to get out of the 40s across extreme northwestern portions of the region where there will be extensive cloud cover. Across the lower Scioto Valley however, expect temperatures to climb into the middle to upper 60s.

Going into Tuesday night cooler air moves into the region and precipitation becomes more widespread. Expect some snow Tuesday night. Snowfall accumulations will be a little tricky. While the snow is falling in late April, it may come down at a quick enough rate to accumulate and it will be occurring overnight. Increased snowfall values across northwestern portions of the forecast area and have a few locations reaching upwards of around an inch for grassy and elevated surfaces. By Wednesday morning several locations northwest of I-71 will drop to freezing or lower. Breezy conditions will be expected with the frontal boundary and after the passage of the frontal boundary.

Continued breezy conditions are expected at times on Wednesday. A brief lull or decrease in precipitation is expected for Wednesday morning. An upper level disturbance will work into the region for the middle of the day and into the afternoon hours. This will allow for cloud cover and additional precipitation. This will also keep temperatures cooler and lowered high temperatures. A mix of rain and snow is expected for Wednesday.

Activity decreases Wednesday evening, however a weak disturbance will bring the chance for additional precipitation generally late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. There is a greater chance of this occurring south of the Ohio River. Precipitation with this feature is expected to be light. Thursday morning expect temperatures to drop to around freezing or lower.

Dry conditions will move into the region by Thursday afternoon and expect them to remain in place through the day on Friday. Another system is expected to begin to move into the region Friday night and remain in place through Saturday night. Expect temperatures to be warm enough with this feature that precipitation will be in the form of rain. Models differ on how long precipitation will linger and therefore have smaller precipitation chances lingering into the day on Sunday.

AVIATION /19Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. A mid level disturbance will move east across Kentucky and Tennessee tonight. For the remainder of this afternoon, a mix of cumulus clouds and high clouds can be expected. Winds will be west to northwest between 5 and 10 knots with local gusts around 15 knots. For tonight, there is a low chance for showers south/southwest of KCVG/KLUK this evening, otherwise skies will generally be partly cloudy. A surface ridge will begin to extend northeast into the Ohio Valley late. Flow around this high and a frontal system to the northwest will allow southwest winds to increase some. There could be some river fog at KLUK as it will be decoupled. Have only placed MVFR visibilities at the terminal for now.

On Monday, surface ridge will move east while the aforementioned frontal system (cold front) will move east/southeast into the eastern/southern Great Lakes. West/southwest flow between the two features will increase by 16Z. Sustained winds between 10 and 15 knots can be expected with gusts between 15 and 20 knots. FEW-SCT diurnal cumulus clouds will form around this time.

OUTLOOK . MVFR/IFR ceilings and visibilities as well as wind gusts up to 30 kt possible Tuesday night into Wednesday.
