Summary

SYNOPSIS

... Weak system today, gives way to high pressure Wednesday. Stronger system for the end of the work week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/... As of 746 AM Tuesday...

Have added a mention of freezing drizzle and dense freezing fog for areas mainly above 3500 ft, for this morning. This could potentially lead to a few patches of a light glaze on roadways, but overall impacts are currently expected to be minimal. Also removed mention of snow for this morning for the higher elevations as insufficient moisture is expected to exist for crystal growth.

As of 140 AM Tuesday...

Models showing lower levels of the soundings saturating with moisture early this morning, then slowly cooling. There is a slight chance that this could create some light rain or drizzle in some areas. In the higher elevations of the mountains where temperatures are below freezing, there is a slight chance of freezing drizzle. As daytime heating takes over, this threat should end.

An upper level trough will then move across this evening. Can't rule out some light rain or drizzle with and behind this feature as well. Once again, in some locations in the mountains where temperatures are below freezing, there is a slight chance of freezing drizzle.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/... As of 210 AM Tuesday...

Models continue to show weak high pressure building over the area on Wednesday. Then slides east on Thursday. This will keep the area dry for the most part. Clouds start to increase during the day on Thursday as the next system approaches from the west. Pops increase from west to east as well and we could see some showers in SE OH and NE KY by late afternoon on Thursday. Cold Front along with a wave of low pressure riding up along it moves into the area Thursday night. Rain will overspread the area on Thursday night into Friday. Temperatures will stay seasonable throughout.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... As of 225 AM Tuesday...

Cold front with waves of low pressure riding up along it will affect the region on Friday and lingers through Saturday night and exits on early Sunday morning. Most of the precipitation will be in the form of rain over the area. As the system exits, colder air will work its way in the region and there is some potential for snow or a rain snow mix at times over the weekend, especially in the higher elevations.
