AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wilmington OH 328 PM EDT Fri Apr 12 2024

Strong winds and a few showers will linger into this evening in the cool westerly flow behind departing low pressure.
Decreasing winds and clouds can be expected tonight as the low pushes farther east. High pressure is forecast to provide dry weather on Saturday. The threat for thunderstorms returns Sunday as low pressure tracks to the Great Lakes.

A moist cyclonic flow persists behind departing low pressure.
Scattered showers and possibly a thunderstorm will linger for a few hours into this evening as moisture and instability gradually drop off. As clouds decrease and allow increased mixing, west winds may gust close to 40 knots through early evening, so we will keep the wind advisory that has been issued through 8pm. Later tonight, winds will diminish below 20 knots, while skies will become mainly clear ahead of high pressure to the west. Temperatures will cool off into the low 40s by 6am.

A ridge of high pressure is forecast to track across the Ohio Valley. This feature will result in no precipitation and scant cloud cover Saturday into Saturday night. It will stay rather breezy with gusts over 20 mph from the northwest on Saturday, before speeds drop Saturday evening while direction shifts to southwest ahead of the next wave of low pressure. As this next low moves toward the Great Lakes later Saturday night, clouds and winds will increase, and a few showers may occur over far northern locations.

Temperatures are expected to rebound into the 60s on Saturday due to insolation and warm advection, with lows Saturday night in the upper 40s to low 50s.

A filling low is forecast to be approaching the lower Great Lakes region on Sunday. While this low dives in from the upper midwest, a theta-e push will occur south of the low over the Ohio Valley on increasing southerly flow. A chance for showers and thunderstorms does exist with the surge of warm, moist air. However, a capping inversion from an EML may inhibit surface-based storms from occurring. If storms do break through the CAP ahead of a southward moving cold front Sunday afternoon, they could pose a severe storm risk as highlighted by SPC day 3 marginal risk. Considering the CAP, this is severe risk is largely a conditional risk that is contingent on storms actually occurring. Upcoming CAM guidance should help provide more guidance on possible storm initiation for Sunday afternoon. Forecast highs on Sunday are in the middle 70s.

The chance for showers and storms continues into Sunday night and Monday morning ahead of the southward-moving cold front attached to the filling low. The cold front is forecast to finally push south of most of the forecast area by Monday afternoon. Winds turn to the north behind the front and temperatures are expected to drop into the 50s by Monday night.

The brief cooldown does not last long as another low is forecast to form in the central Plains by Tuesday. This low will lift a warm front through the Ohio Valley on Tuesday leading to a chance for showers and storms ahead of the front. Warmer temperatures, increased humidity, and southerly winds persist after FROPA through Wednesday ahead of a cold front associated with the aforementioned low. The chance of showers and thunderstorms may increase on Wednesday when forcing overlaps with instability over the Ohio Valley. Temperatures may eventually drop back closer to average by late week.

Aviation is being affected by a strong cyclonic flow behind low pressure to the northeast. Along with IFR ceilings and rain showers, TAF sites may be impacted by VCTS at CVG and LUK early in the forecast. Synoptic scale winds may reach close to 40 knots late this afternoon in the tight pressure gradient. VFR may be attained and showers should end by this evening as drier air works in. VFR persists Saturday under high pressure, while winds remain rather strong with gusts over 20 knots.

OUTLOOK...Thunderstorms are possible on Sunday and Tuesday.

OH...Wind Advisory until 8 PM EDT this evening for OHZ026-034-035- 042>046-051>056-060>065-070>074.
IN...Wind Advisory until 8 PM EDT this evening for INZ050-058-059.
