.Short Term...(Today through Friday)

A chilly but partly sunny Thanksgiving Day is expected across the

50s across the area.

increasing ahead of the next cold front.  Lows tonight should range
from the upper 20w to lower 30s.

.Long Term...(Friday night through Wednesday)
Issued at 215 AM EST Thu Nov 23 2017

Friday Night - Monday...

Friday night a dry cold front looks to push through the Ohio Valley
bringing mainly mostly cloudy skies Fri night into the first part of
Sat.  Sat highs look to range through the 50s.  The colder air won`t
arrive until Sat night with lows dropping off into the lower 30s and
highs on Sunday falling back into the mid 40s to lower 50s.  The
cold surge won`t last long though with return flow expected by
Monday.  Highs on Mon will rebound back into the 50s area wide.

Tuesday - Wednesday...

Forecast confidence from Tues onward falls to low as models have
diverged in recent runs with the upper pattern and how to handle an
energetic trough of Pacific origin moving into the western U.S. by
early next week. Long range models are having difficulty with this
feature and subsequent sfc cyclogenesis and precipitation fields.
For now will hold onto POPs in the late Tue/Wed time frame but this
may need adjusted to later in the week if the slower more amplified
model solutions pan out.  As of now temps look to remain around
normal for this time of year mid week next week.


.Aviation...(06Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 1202 AM EST Thu Nov 23 2017

remain light and variable through the morning before starting to
