AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wilmington OH 312 PM EDT Wed Apr 17 2024

The area dries out through Thursday afternoon before the next system moves into the Ohio Valley, bringing renewed chances for rain and thunderstorms. After this system moves through, there will be a notable cool down over the weekend, before temperatures rebound slightly next week.

The cold front will have moved through the area at the start of the near term period, heralding in a ~10 degree drop in Tds.
Winds remain elevated through sunset Wednesday evening, then decrease in intensity and shift to out of the west. Weak ridging and subsidence behind the parent shortwave help clear skies during the overnight areas. Overnight lows drop to the low 50s.

The weak ridging slowly moves east out of the region, with mostly sunny Thursday morning skies being slowly replaced with high clouds by Thursday late afternoon ahead of the next shortwave system. The attendant weak surface low moves up from the Ozarks region, bringing another push of theta-e through the region late Thursday evening. Right now, high temperatures in the low 80s along the Ohio River and highs in the mid 70s across central Ohio.

12 and 18z CAM runs indicate a multicell cluster off to our west quickly congealing into a (possibly bowing?) line as it moves through out area. Right now, the higher severe threat appears to be closer to the Tri- State, where forcing with the shortwave is a bit stronger. In terms of hazards, primary concerns will be damaging winds and large hail
With that being said
time of arrival is still a bit up in the air and there is some question as to whether the line arrives late enough in the evening that available instability will be diminished. Continued high moisture content suggests efficient rain rates and the possibility for isolated areas of flooding.

Lingering showers and embedded thunderstorms on Friday will taper off from the west through morning and into early afternoon as the mid level short wave moves off to the east. A west to northwest flow pattern will then set up aloft heading into the weekend and remain in place across the region through the first part of next week.

Surface high pressure over the northern Plains will nose down into the Ohio Valley and then slowly shift southeast into the southeast US through Monday. This will result in dry but cool conditions across our area for Saturday through Monday. Daytimes highs will be in in the 50s to lower 60s with overnight lows down into the 30s.
There will be the potential for some frost conditions both Saturday and Sunday nights.

Mid level energy will drop southeast into the region Tuesday into Wednesday, bringing the next chance for some showers and perhaps a thunderstorms Temperatures will moderate a bit with highs both days in the 60s.

A line of storms ahead of a cold front currently moving into northwest Ohio will continue eastward this afternoon. All site (except KCVG/KLUK) has a period of TSRA when storms are forecast to move through. For the two southern sites, confidence is lower that storms will reach that far south, so opted to keep TAFs cleaner for the time being.

Outside of storms, CIGs have cleared up to a scattered deck of stratocu and will continue clearing through the evening hours.
Strong southwesterly winds, gusting to 35 knots, shift to out of the west after frontal passage. Winds remain elevated through the afternoon but will decrease around sunset.

Clouds continue to decrease into the overnight hours and VFR conditions should prevail into Thursday morning. Some hi-res guidance hints at patchy fog development in southwest Ohio/ northern Kentucky after winds die down, however, doesn't look to be widespread or dense, therefore have not included in TAFs.

OUTLOOK...Showers and thunderstorms with MVFR CIGs /VSBYs are possible Thursday evening into Friday. Wind gusts around 30 knots are possible Friday.
