-- Changed Discussion --
High pressure will build east across the region today as a frontal boundary remains stalled to our south. The front will push north as a warm front tonight and Monday allowing for milder temperatures and an increasing chance for showers. Low pressure and a trailing cold front will push through the region on Tuesday offering more showers and perhaps a thunderstorm.

&& .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
-- Changed Discussion --
Surface high pressure over the region this morning will allow for a temporary dry period. Some partial clearing clearing has taken place across the far northern counties, but elsewhere low clouds have remained in place. Abundant low level moisture has lead to widespread fog development. Low level flow has kept the fog from becoming dense but some locally protected spots may experience dense fog at times. The high will slide east of the region and weak isentropic lift develops over the far south late this afternoon. Have limited pops to chance category late in the day south. Highs today to range from the mid/upper 30s north to the lower 40s south.

Northern portions of CWA may observed some very light freezing precip overnight. Probability and any possible amount are too low for a headline at this time.

&& .LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/...
-- Changed Discussion --
High pressure will build in at mid week and move off to the east. Southerly flow will ensue with rising upper heights. This will lead to well above normal temperatures. Some showers could develop as weak disturbances lift up the back side of the upper ridge, with latest guidance suggesting Friday being the better day to see precipitation.

&& .AVIATION /09Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/... Low level moisture persists on the fringe of high pressure centered over Wisconsin. Ceilings as low as 300 ft and BR will linger for several hours before drier air working in from the northwest allows conditions to improve to VFR by mid morning. Winds will shift from north to northeast as the high migrates east across the Great Lakes. Increasing moisture and short wave energy on the return flow around the high may bring showers back to CVG LUK and ILN late in the forecast period.
