UPDATE...INCREASED POPS IN THE CENTRAL HIGHLANDS BASED ON CURRENT RADAR AND TRENDS. OTHERWISE NO BIG CHANGES. ORIGINAL...THE COLD FRONT IS NOW PUSHING EAST OF THE AREA AND FOR THE MOMENT...MOST OF THE RAIN IS EAST OF OHIO. MODELS SHOW THE UPPER LOW DROPPING SOUTH TODAY REACHING EASTERN LAKE ERIE BY 18Z AND WESTERN PA BY 00Z. IN RESPONSE...THE HRRR SHOWS PRECIP REDEVELOPING ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA THROUGH THE MORNING WITH HIGHEST COVERAGE AND GREATEST CONFIDENCE EAST THIRD TO HALF.

BASICALLY EASTERN OHIO AND NWRN PA WILL BE WITHIN THE CIRCULATION OF THE SYSTEM TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY WITH SHORT WAVES ROTATING SOUTH ACROSS THE REGION. BEST RAIN CHANCES WILL COME TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT WITH ONLY CHANCE POPS FOR NORTHWEST PENNSYLVANIA WEDNESDAY AS DEEPER MOISTURE PULLS EAST. THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY EXPECT MAINLY DRY CONDITIONS AS VERY DRY AIR ASSOCIATED WITH A WEAKENING UPPER RIDGE MOVES ACROSS THE AREA. TEMPS BELOW NORMAL TO START...RISING TO NEAR NORMAL BY LATE WEEK. && .LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... MODEL DIFFERENCES IN THE STRENGTH OF A COLD FRONT CLIPPING THE AREA SAT OR EARLY SAT NIGHT IS LEADING TO UNCERTAINTY. FOR NOW WILL STAY WITH SLIGHT CHC POPS. TEMPS SHOULD MODERATE A LITTLE MORE FOR SAT...GETTING CLOSE TO NORMAL. CONTINUE UNCERTAINTY FOR SUN DUE TO THE MODEL DIFFERENCES. WILL KEEP THE FORECAST DRY WITH TEMPS SIMILAR TO SAT. MORE UPPER RIDGING FOR MON AND A S TO SW FLOW SHOULD FINALLY LEAD TO A DAY OF TEMPS ABOVE NORMAL. RIGHT NOW THE MODELS KEEP THE BETTER MOISTURE WEST OF THE AREA SO WILL KEEP THE DAY DRY. && .AVIATION /12Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... MIX OF IFR/MVFR AND LOCAL VFR SHOULD SETTLE INTO A MORE UNIFORM MVFR BY MIDDAY. EXPECT LITTLE CHANGE LATE AFTERNOON THRU 06Z.

THINK INCREASING NORTH WINDS WILL PRODUCE SCA CONDITIONS FOR MOST OF THE LAKE TODAY THAT WILL PROBABLY CONTINUE INTO WED NIGHT AND MAYBE EVEN INTO THU EVE AS THE WEATHER PATTERN SHOWS LITTLE CHANGE. HIGH PRESSURE DOES FINALLY SPREAD UP THE OHIO VALLEY FRI AND SHOULD DECREASE THE WINDS ENOUGH FOR WAVES TO BE BELOW 4 FEET. THE MODELS DIFFER MORE FOR SAT SO THE STRENGTH AND AFFECTS OF A COLD FRONT THAT MAY CROSS THE LAKE IS IN QUESTION.
