.SHORT TERM...
Today and tonight.

Overall high pressure will still be in control of the region today
and tonight. However, we will see some more features that will
impact the region and begin to moisten up the area for the
extended portion of the forecast. For this afternoon, we will
begin to see a seabreeze move northward. Looks like it will
approach the area late in the afternoon into the evening hours.
Will include isolated to scattered showers and storms in the far
south through this evening. We will continue to moisten as
southerly flow increases over the region. There may be just enough
lift late tonight to generate an isolated shower/storm across the
eastern two-thirds of the area so will include during that time
as well. Most of the area will remain dry through the next 24
hours. More of a typical summer time forecast, with a little more
in humidity by the afternoon.

.LONG TERM...
Thursday through Tuesday.

Deep moisture will continue to spread inland on Thursday as a
disturbance moves northward from the Gulf of Mexico. For the
weekend, an upper-level trough is expected to approach the region
and provide additional focus for convection. This pattern should
lead to an extended period high rain chances for Thursday through
Sunday. Rain chances may decrease somewhat for early next week with
the passage of a diffuse front, but moisture content could remain
sufficient for isolated diurnally-driven convection.

.AVIATION...
12Z TAF Discussion.

Surface high pressure analyzed over eastern West Virginia is
continuing to support fair skies and winds that are light out of
the east this morning. Low level winds will shift out of the
southeast later today. VFR conditions will prevail today and
tonight outside of convection, which is more likely south. Clouds
will increase from south to north today and tonight with
increasing potential for TSRA, especially south. All sites will
have the potential for TSRA toward the end of this forecast cycle
on midday Wednesday.

.FIRE WEATHER...
