Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA 142 AM EDT Mon Jun 5 2023
Slow moving low pressure will meander around the New England area and adjacent Atlantic coastal waters through much of the week. Cool and mostly dry weather is anticipated.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/
High pressure continues to ensure dry conditions once again through the period. Radiational cooling should support lows near seasonal averages by dawn. RAP smoke model indicates another surge of thick smoke possible over the area through this afternoon. Temperatures will warm to near or perhaps slightly below seasonal normals.
SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
Upper low will continue to wobble and deepen through the short term as the core of the system goes from MA coast to Nova Scotia. Moisture starved short wave troughs will rotate around the west side of this low toward the region, but little more than some cu coverage is anticipated. With significant precipitation not expected, our current 15 day dry spell will continue at KPIT.
LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/
Upper low will maintain its influence through the latter half of the week, with yet another shortwave rotating around the periphery Thurs-Fri. It appears the low will finally eject east on Saturday with a more progressive northwest flow pattern kicking in across the Great Lakes area. At this time, some of the model guidance suggest another shortwave trough dropping toward the Great Lakes toward the end of the period. The NBM has the greatest chances for precipitation in the entire week long stretch for late Sat-Sun.
AVIATION /06Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
VFR conditions are expected through the TAF period. Weak disturbances within northerly flow will bring periods of cirrus (mixed with lofted smoke from Canadian wildfires) while repositioning of sfc high will cause backing winds through the day.
Probability for continuation of VFR conditions is high through the week under dry northerly flow. Weak disturbances (and associated sfc features) may create low precipitation chances Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.
