383 FXUS61 KILN 300609 AFDILN Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington OH 209 AM EDT TUE AUG 30 2016 .SYNOPSIS... Weak surface high pressure will work into the area for the day on Tuesday. A cold front will approach and move through the region Tuesday night into Wednesday. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/... Skies have cleared off across the area this evening. There are some higher level clouds off to our northwest and suppose a few of these may drift into part of our area overnight but for the most part, still expect mainly clear skies. Lows tonight will range mainly from the lower 60s north to the upper 60s south. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/... Weak flow will be present across the area on Tuesday. Went with dry conditions for the day on Tuesday. Some of the models are trying to hint at some light activity working into northwest portions of the forecast area. Believe this is overdone and that drier air will keep any activity from developing. Bring precipitation chances into the region late Tuesday night into Wednesday as a frontal boundary approaches and moves through. Some residual activity will linger into the evening hours with the upper level disturbance. Dry conditions are expected by the end of the short term period. In addition cooler temperatures will work into the region Wednesday night with some locations across the north dropping down into the 50s overnight Wednesday night. && .LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... Upper trough across the eastern part of the continent at the beginning of the period will translate east by the end of the week. This will allow an upper ridge to build in over the weekend and continue into early next week. At the surface...high pressure will prevail through the period with a dry air mass in place. Temperatures will be below normal late in the week and then warm through the weekend and into Monday. && .AVIATION /06Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...

Mid level ridge remains anchored from the central plains through the Ohio Valley. Weak surface high pressure to slide off to the east today. Expect just some high level cloudiness overnight. With light winds, expect to see patchy fog development tonight. Have MVFR visibility restrictions at KCVG and KILN and IFR at KLUK valley location. Under the influence of high pressure, expect VFR conditions through the remainder of the TAF period. OUTLOOK...Thunderstorms are possible on Wednesday.
