... Weak disturbance allowing for isolated showers and storms today. Otherwise, warm and mainly dry weather on Sunday. Cold front on Monday followed by high pressure.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/... As of 200 PM Saturday...
A shortwave trough undercutting the upper level ridge has contributed to isolated showers and thunderstorms across the Ohio Valley this afternoon. Latest radar sampling places showers across the northern periphery of the forecast area, lining up well with hi-res model guidance for the afternoon timeframe. Given this mindset, the best forcing and moisture advection will press north and eastward by this evening, leaving Central Appalachia quiet and dry around or just after sunset.
The ridge will regain dominance over the area late tonight, rounding out the weekend on a warm and dry note. The overnight period will once again feature river valley fog, beginning over the northeast WV mountains then slithering further westward, potentially as far west as the Charleston metro area early Sunday morning. This will then give way to a warmer than average afternoon, with highs reaching the upper 80s across the lowlands under ample sunshine.
Pressure gradient will be on the increase in response to an approaching cold front towards the end of near term period, however the strongest winds will likely stay out of the RLX CWA as the boundary weakens upon arrival on Monday.
SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/... As of 218 PM Saturday...
Surface front is still prog to push across the CWA during the first half of the day on Monday. Only a thin band of significant moisture depth is prog to exist, and thus only a few showers (perhaps a rumble of thunder) should occur with FROPA. Post-frontal low level cloudiness may persist across much of WV and SW VA Monday evening, with clearing then taking place by Tuesday as a 1017mb sfc high center moves closer to the area. A cooler and much less humid feeling airmass will arrive by late Monday and especially Tuesday.
LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... As of 218 PM Saturday...
Weakening sfc high center is prog to move overhead and eventually pull east of the area on Wednesday, allowing for low level WAA to develop. This will allow for a slow warming trend through mid week as brief zonal flow aloft promotes continued minimal chances of rain.
A weak front tries to drop south into the area Thursday night and into Friday, but should fail to make it very far south before retreating northward as an effect warm front. Another prolonged period of unseasonably warm conditions along with dry weather is then expected to exist by late next week as H85 and H5 high pressure centers remain anchored over the SE CONUS...with high height fields (and associated subsidence) prevailing across the region.
