SYNOPSIS... High pressure holds through today. Strong cold front crosses Thursday, and another possibly on Sunday.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/... As of 955 AM Wednesday...
No changes this morning.
As of 355 AM Wednesday...
Have canceled the frost and freeze headlines for a large portion of the forecast area this morning as mid level clouds have kept temperatures much warmer than previously forecast. However, skies are clear across the Southern half of the CWA and we are currently seeing observations in the upper 30s, so have decided to leave out the frost advisory in these areas.
Today we will see an increase in temperatures. Highs should climb into the 60s to maybe even low 70s across the Southern forecast area as a frontal system approaching from the west turns the flow out ahead of it from the south. Clouds will be on the increase through as the cold front associated shortwave push into Ohio early Thursday morning. Showers should enter the Ohio Valley by daybreak tomorrow, but the bulk of the precip will be during the short term period of the forecast.
SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... As of 335 AM Wednesday... A sfc low pressure system will cross the southern Great Lakes region Thursday. An associated cold front will pass over our area Thursday with showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms. Very little bouyancy, deep layered shear less than 35 knots and precipitable water about 1.14 inches indicate a weak environment for storms to form. Curious that models bring a vorticity maxima ahead of the pcpn. So, kept likely PoPs and a mention of afternoon thunder mainly over the eastern half of the area through Thursday evening.
A similar clipper takes the same track passing northwest of the area with another cold front by Sunday.
There is going to be a warming trend for the following few days starting with lows in the 40s Thursday night and in the 50s Friday night with showers lingering over the northeast mountains. Highs can climb up into the upper 70s lowlands, ranging to 60 degrees highest peaks.
LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/... As of 335 AM Wednesday...
The weather remains unsettled in the long term with a series of upper level disturbance possible along the upper level jet. Went with the blend of models for temperature, tweaking down PoPs when is dry under high pressure.
