Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA 1111 AM EDT Fri Apr 3 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry weather is be expected through tomorrow under high pressure. Shower chances return Sunday with the passage of a cold front.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/.

Clouds, associated with a coastal low in southern New England, will increase this afternoon for areas east of I-79. Generally sunny skies are expected west of PIT under eroding high pressure. Gusty winds will occur this afternoon and last until sunset due to a tight pressure gradient associated with the coastal low. Based off of model soundings, the threshold to receive sufficient boundary layer is near 50 degrees; 20-25mph gusts will be observed.

Tonight will be quiet under high pressure, temperatures will stay continue to stay near the climatological average.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/.

Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies and dry weather are expected under weak high pressure Saturday.

The ridge is expected to flatten as it moves east Saturday night and Sunday, as a weakening shortwave trough and its associated cold front approach and cross the Great Lakes. By early Sunday morning scattered showers along and ahead of FROPA will occur. With the lack of upper-level support and deep layer moisture, isolated areas will only receive at most a quarter of an inch of rain.

Clouds are expected to linger along the weak frontal boundary, south of PIT, Sunday afternoon as zonal flow prevails. Otherwise, dry weather is expected under building high pressure over the Great Lakes. Temperatures should average near or a few degrees above seasonable levels.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/.

Generally dry weather is expected Monday as the high moves east across the region. Periodic shower chances return early Tuesday morning through Thursday as a series of shortwaves in fast moving W-NW flow aloft cross the region.

AVIATION /14Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. VFR conditions will continue through the morning and into the afternoon along the eastern side of an upper ridge. As daytime mixing increases, wind will pick up towards midday with gusts to around 20 knots developing.

A trough axis rotating around a low pressure system off the eastern CONUS will help increase clouds over the eastern terminals late tomorrow. Terminals north and east of PIT, such as FKL, DUJ and LBE should eventually see MVFR ceilings tonight as low-level moisture increases along the trough axis. Elsewhere, clouds may develop overnight, but VFR ceilings should be maintained.

Outlook. The next chance for general restrictions is not expected until early next week.

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.
