Dry, seasonable weather will continue until a cold front brings
showers and breezy conditions to the region on Wednesday. Dry
conditions and above normal temperatures are expected for the
Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
Clear skies and light winds expected overnight as high pressure
centers over the region. An ideal setup for strong radiational
cooling will allow temperatures to drop close to dewpoints overnight.
Winds will be light with high pressure centered over the region... So
dew, patchy fog, and patchy frost (largely north of pgh where
dewpoints and temperatures at the surface have the best shot of
getting near freezing) will all be in the mix. Much will depend on
winds and whether there is enough mixing near the sfc for fog
development. If winds across the region are largely calm, fog would
be mainly limited to steam fog over rivers with a heavier dew
Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through Thursday night
Dry conditions will continue on Tuesday but temperatures will be
warmer with increased WAA ahead a deepening upper low moving over
the central great lakes. Clouds will increase Tuesday night and
strengthening southerly flow keeping winds coupled will result in a
milder night ahead the approaching front which is progged to cross
the region Wednesday morning. On average 0.5" of rain is expected
with the front Wednesday morning with higher amount along and north
of the i-80 corridor. Lake-enhanced and upslope showers should linger
near i-80 laurel highlands into Thursday as NW flow prevails.
Winds will pick up with FROPA and persist into
Thursday. Gusts between 20 and 30mph are expected with stronger gusts
in the ridges.
There will be a limited diurnal range in temperatures Wednesday with
the morning fropa. The strong CAA behind the front will keep
temperatures from rising too far from morning lows (or at all)
during the day. Continued CAA will keep temperatures well below
normal on Thursday... .And with gusty winds... Apparent temperatures
will in the 40s during the afternoon.
Long term Friday through Monday
High pressure is expected to build across the great lakes Friday, dry
and quiet conditions are expected to prevail. With a wind shift from
the south warm advection resuming... Temperatures will trend up and be
above normal by the weekend.
Aviation 23z Monday through Saturday
Vfr conditions expected through the TAF period as high pressure
remains in control. Llws will begin to impact sites Wednesday
Restrictions and gusty sfc wind are likely Wed as strong low pres
crosses the great lakes. Gusty winds will persist into Thursday.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
