Summary

SYNOPSIS

... A cold front brings showers and thunderstorms today, with the front crossing tonight. More seasonable air can be expected behind the front on Monday. Heating up again midweek.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/... As of 830 AM Sunday...

Temperatures were off to a fast start this rather warm morning and adjusted accordingly. High temperatures today were not affected as the heat will be intercepted by clouds, showers and thunderstorms. Added gusty winds, small hail, and heavy rainfall wording to the forecast for later this afternoon and this evening.

As of 1240 AM Sunday...

Unseasonably warm air will continue today, but not as hot as the past week. An approaching cold front will allow for the development of showers and thunderstorms today. SPC has outlooked the region with a chance of severe weather this afternoon and evening. With a freezing level of 15000 to 16000 feet, thinking that the main threat will be wind. With decent low level shear and helicity values, central Ohio and northwestern West Virginia even have a small chance of tornados.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/... As of 230 AM Sunday...

Showers and a few lingering thunderstorms will be tapering off in the mountains by daybreak on Monday as the cold front pushes eastward. Only a slight chance for some showers will remain across the mountains of southern West Virginia and southwestern Virginia.

A secondary cold front with high pressure hot on its heels will then move through during the morning to reinforce NW'rly flow, drier air and near normal to slightly below temperatures. The lowlands will finally see temperatures in the low to mid 80s with afternoon RH values in the 40s to low 50s. The mountains will range anywhere from the upper 60s across the highest elevations to around 80 for the lower elevations and mountain valleys.

With high pressure in place to decouple the region, cool and comfortable lows are expected Monday night with 50s and low 60s for the lowlands; 50s in the mountains. Patchy to dense fog will likely form in the river valleys overnight.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... As of 1148 AM Sunday...

Frontal boundary and upper trough will move east of the area late Wednesday night or early Thursday, with high pressure building into the region behind it. This should usher in a brief period of cooler and drier weather for Thursday. By Friday into the weekend, heat returns, as southerly flow increases out ahead of the next system, which will move into the area over the weekend, with additional rounds of showers and storms. A bit early to say for sure, but heat headlines may be needed during this time period.
