Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA
942 PM EDT Mon Oct 16 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure will result in gradually warming weather and dry
conditions through the week.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/...
Expect temperatures to fall rapidly to below seasonal averages
tonight as we decouple with areas of frost expected. Will
maintain the frost advisory as is - in the counties where the
growing season continues.

High pressure will maintain nearly clear skies and light wind
Tuesday. Temperatures should begin to moderate to closer to
normal values with plenty of sun and warming mid-levels.

&&

.SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/...
High pressure will remain firmly entrenched over the area
through the middle of the week, ensuring a dry forecast. Brief
ridging through Wednesday will be stunted by a system passing
well to our north Thursday but this system will have little
impact to our area, with only a few additional clouds as a
result.

&&

.LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/...
After a brief flattening of the ridge Thursday night, higher
heights will build back in through the end of the week,
continuing the dry and warming trend. Ridge looks to maximize
over the weekend with highs slated to be well-above average.
Models continue to show the next chance of rain coming with a
cold front early next week.

&&

.AVIATION /02Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
VFR conditions are expected for through the period, as cu
diminishes this eve with the loss of heating. Wind will
diminish as well, with a gradual backing from the northwest to
the southwest by tomorrow morning.
