Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA 355 AM EST Wed Nov 25 2020

SYNOPSIS. Rain will move into the area today and continue into Thursday morning before the passage of low pressure. Temperatures remain above normal through Thursday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. Southern stream low pressure will dig toward the Great Lakes today. Rain will spread across the Upr OH as the day progresses due to deepening moisture on the ern flank of the system with support from increasingly divergent flow. Progression, and an encroaching mid level dry slot, will limit rainfall amounts.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH FRIDAY/. Rain chance will decrease on Thursday with a seasonably warm afternoon as shortwave ridging ensues in response to the advance of yet another cntrl CONUS trough.

Weak shortwave trough will cross the area Friday morning. This disturbance will provide a brief period of cold air advection which will work to keep cloud cover over the region and cool daytime highs by a degree or two. Models are hinting that a passing shower is possible as the colder air aloft moves through. However, building high pressure will combat shower development, so for now will leave Friday dry.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. That cntrl CONUS system is forecast to result in split flow once again, the northern stream of which is currently progged to send a cold front across the immediate area on Friday night. Warmer temperature is thus likely to be interrupted for the start of the weekend although precipitation is not anticipated as the southern stream inhibits moisture return.

Formation of a midwestern low pressure in an amplified, yet split flow pattern is expected to bring the next widespread precip.chance early next week.

AVIATION /09Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Building high pres wl maintain VFR, but marginal llvl wind shear is possible early Wednesday as the pres gradient tightens in response to advancing low pres. That low will bring MVFR in rain as Wednesday progresses.

Outlook. Cig restrictions are expected with passage of a Friday night cdfnt. The next chc for widespread precip. is expected early next week.

PBZ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . None. OH . None. WV . None.

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.
