... While a few flurries or sprinkles are possible this afternoon and evening, the next chance for measurable precipitation will be Wednesday evening.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/... As an upper level trough axis passes over the region, favorable low level lapse rates have resulted in widespread stratocumulus. While there are some weak radar echoes, there is still a 20 degree spread between surface temperatures and dewpoints, meaning that very little precipitation is actually reaching the ground. As of 3pm, the only local site reporting precip was BTP, with an 18 degree dewpoint depression. While sprinkles/flurries are in the forecast through the evening, think the odds of any measurable precipitation are on the low side. All precipitation should come to an end by midnight as surface high pressure moves into the region. The high will center itself over western Pennsylvania on Tuesday. Temperatures will be about 5 degrees below normal.
SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/... Although the high will remain across the region Tuesday night, broad, weak low pressure will move over lower Michigan Wednesday night and into Quebec by Thursday morning, dragging a weak cold front across the region. While there will not be much of a temperature difference behind the front, the dynamics with the front are strong enough that the area of likely pops was expanded farther south, from Interstate 80 south to Interstate 70. Some locations could receive a dusting of snow Wednesday night, but otherwise temperatures will be too warm to allow for accumulating snow. Temperatures will remain slightly below normal.
LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/... While the surface front will pass to the east on Thursday, the upper trough axis will be slower to push through, not arriving until Friday morning. Have added some slight chance pops to the forecast Thursday night into Friday to account for this. After that, dry weather is expected until the next system from the Plains arrives on Monday. Temperatures will moderate over the weekend, with highs rising into the upper 50s and 60s on Monday.
