- Dry overnight until Thursday afternoon

- Rain Thursday night with some thunder possible

- Cool and dry this weekend, blustery Saturday

- A bit milder early next week

Issued at 248 PM EDT Wed Apr 17 2024

- Dry overnight until Thursday afternoon

No changes to previous thinking here. After thunderstorms clear the area later today, there could be some wraparound precipitation across our northern zones lasting into early tonight. Otherwise, we should be dry the rest of the night into Thursday afternoon, when a shower or two may be possible.

- Rain Thursday night with some thunder possible

The next possibility for rain will be associated with a very stretched out cold front extending southwestward across the central CONUS. We are in the exit region of a powerful upper jet during this time with a lot of forced ascent potential. Indeed, HRRR/SREF guidance both advertise a chance for thunder across our southern zones. This activity should exit by sunrise Friday morning.

- Cool and dry this weekend, blustery Saturday

Fair weather will return Friday through the weekend. It will become much cooler as h8 temps fall to -7 to -9 C by Saturday. Highs in the 50s Friday will decrease to the 40s Saturday - and Saturday will feel quite raw as strong gusty winds drop wind chills into the 30s. Lows could fall to near or below freezing across portions of our area early Sunday and Monday mornings as surface ridging builds in.

- A bit milder early next week

Temps will moderate a bit early next week back to near normal for this time of year. Fair weather will continue Monday. A weak low pressure system will bring a chance of rain showers Monday night into Tuesday.
Fair weather will return for the mid to latter portion of next week as another surface high pressure ridge builds in.

Issued at 1200 PM EDT Wed Apr 17 2024

Primarily MVFR conditions are expected this afternoon with brief reductions to IFR due to briefly heavier rain and stronger thunderstorms. South to southwest winds will increase to 15 to 25 kts and heavier thunderstorms will potentially bring briefly higher gusts.

The thunderstorms will move east of our eastern terminals by 20Z late this afternoon. Winds will veer to the west and gradually diminish this evening. A mix of MVFR to VFR conditions is forecast overnight through midday Thursday with patchy MVFR due to lingering lower cigs. Additional rain showers tomorrow are not expected until late afternoon and evening.

Issued at 248 PM EDT Wed Apr 17 2024

No changes planned at this time.

MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 6 AM EDT Thursday for LMZ844>849.
