A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY ACRS THE NRN CWFA THIS EVENING WILL SHOW ONLY A LITTLE PROGRESS TO THE SOUTH OVERNIGHT. IN FACT...IT MAY END UP LOSING ITS IDENTITY IN TERMS OF FRONTAL CONVERGENCE BY MONDAY MORNING. OF MORE CONCERN FOR THE OVERNIGHT HOURS IS AN EMBEDDED DISTURBANCE CURRENTLY MOVING THROUGH CENTRAL INDIANA. THIS FEATURE WILL MOVE SOUTHEAST OVERNIGHT. THE HRRR IS THE ONLY MODEL TRYING TO CAPTURE THE AREA OF SHOWERS AND EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS OVER CENTRAL INDIANA...MOVING IT SOUTHEAST BUT WEAKENING IT AS IT PUSHES INTO OUR AREA. BASED ON LATEST RADAR AND TRAJECTORY...FEEL THE NEED TO BUMP UP POPS FOR MEASURABLE PCPN TO LIKELY...MAINLY FOR THE DAYTON METRO AND POINTS TOWARD THE SW CWFA (TRI-STATE) REGION THROUGH AT LEAST THE EARLY MORNING HOURS.

HEIGHT/THICKNESS RISES WILL LEAD TO A WARM UP OF TEMPERATURES...WITH HIGHS ON TUESDAY RANGING FROM THE UPPER 80S NW TO THE LOWER 90S SE. PROGRESSIVE MID LEVEL TROF TO MOVE FROM THE NRN PLAINS/SRN CANADA ACRS THE GREAT LAKES AT MID WEEK FLATTENING OUT THE NRN PORTION OF THE RIDGE. THIS WILL ALLOW A SFC COLD FRONT TO PUSH THRU THE REGION EARLY THURSDAY. MODEL SOLNS HAVE TRENDED A LTL FASTER WITH THIS FRONTAL PASSAGE. HAVE CONTINUED MENTION OF LOW CHANCE POPS FOR THUNDERSTORMS WED AFTN AS MOISTURE AND MODERATE INSTBY RETURNS. WARM TEMPERATURES TO CONTINUE WEDNESDAY AHEAD OF THE FRONT WITH HIGHS FROM THE UPPER 80S NW TO THE LOWER 90S SE.

VERY WEAK WIND FIELD WITH A FRONT DRAPED SOUTH OF THE REGION IN KENTUCKY WILL SEE SHOWERS SCATTERED ABOUT WITH A GRADUAL EASTWARD MOVEMENT THROUGH DAYBREAK. HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE GREAT LAKES REGION WILL STRENGTHEN TODAY AND THE EAST WIND IN OHIO VALLEY WILL TURN MORE NE TO N AND SHIFT THE SOURCE REGION FOR SHOWER INITIATION TO THE SOUTHWEST...KEEPING KCMH/KLCK OUT OF ACTIVITY TODAY. KCVG AND KLUK SHOULD HAVE THE BEST CHANCES FOR SHOWERS THIS AFTERNOON AND THE GRADIENT WILL LIGHTEN BACK UP WITH THE SETTING SUN. EXPECT THE VERY MOIST AIR FROM EARLIER SHOWERS TO HAVE MVFR FOG TO DEVELOP. OUTLOOK...THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY.
