Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wilmington OH
209 AM EDT TUE AUG 30 2016
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/...
-- Changed Discussion --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.
