Area Forecast Discussion...CORRECTED National Weather Service Charleston WV 302 AM EDT Sun Jun 25 2017
SYNOPSIS... Cooler Sunday through Tuesday, with upper level disturbances possibly providing a few light showers. Dry midweek under high pressure. Progressive pattern takes hold late in week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/... As of 920 PM Saturday...
Minor flooding continues across portions of SE Ohio and NE Kentucky. The water is receding in many locations and flooding issues have ended in some locations. However, the Little Muskingum River at Bloomfield and the Tygarts Creek near Greenup continue to run high and some roads continue to remain closed. The water levels should continue to fall overnight.
Latest radar from KRLX shows a line of showers extends from near Elkins southwest to near Charleston. Not sure how much of this precipitation is reaching the ground as none of the stations where the line passed over have reported any rain. Have introduced a light chance of showers across northeast parts of our forecast area for the next few hours.
Otherwise, only made some minor tweaks to reflect current trends.
As of 130 PM Saturday... Minor flooding continues across parts of SE Ohio and NE Kentucky, however in most areas water is receding and flooding issues should continue to dwindle.
A broad upper level trough moving through the western Great Lakes will provide mild and mainly dry weather this weekend. Models do show a couple weak 500mb ripples moving through tonight and Sunday. Kept POPs dry, but did include some additional clouds. High and low temperatures will run generally 5-7 degrees cooler than normal for late June.
SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/... As of 200 PM Saturday...
Cooler and drier in the short term period as upper shortwave trough and surface high pressure remain in control. Could be a few showers or even an isolated thunderstorm Monday and Tuesday as the upper trough pushes farther south into the region, but most areas should remain dry.
Temperatures during the period actually look to be below normal.
LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... As of 200 PM Saturday...
High pressure will rebuild into the region mid week, for a return of dry and warm weather. However, a progressive pattern will take hold for the remainder of the period, along with increasing heat and humidity once again, with showers and thunderstorms becoming more numerous again as the week progresses.
