000 FXUS61 KILN 250540 AFDILN Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington OH 140 AM EDT Mon Sep 25 2017 .SYNOPSIS... An upper level ridge will remain over the region through mid week. This will bring dry and warm weather conditions to the region. Much cooler air will settle into the region by the end of the week. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/... Thin high clouds will continue to drift northwest across the area through the night. winds will be light again. Forecast lows look reasonable. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM TUESDAY/... On Monday H5 ridge weakens from the south, due to the presence of Hurricane Maria. This should allow for additional cirrus clouds to affect the region. There still should be enough solar insolation to push highs to around 90 again. The ridge, although weaker, will hold again Monday night. Lows will be a little warmer, ranging from 60 to 65. && .LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/... Warm and above normal temperatures will continue for Tuesday and Wednesday with high temperatures in the 80s to around 90. A cold front will work into the region on Wednesday. Moisture is very limited with this system and therefore limited any precipitation to a slight chance generally northwest of Interstate 71. There is some limited instability therefore have a thunder mention in as well. Any isolated precipitation will taper off by the evening hours. This front will usher in cooler air with highs in the 70s on Thursday. There are model differences with how strong the trough is on Friday. Most model solutions keep the area dry or limit precipitation to northern portions of the region. Went with a slight chance of showers generally along and north of Interstate 70. This will usher in another shot of cooler air with highs on Friday around 70 and highs Saturday and Sunday generally in the 60s. Some lingering showers will be possible on Saturday and therefore went with a slight chance across most of the region. && .AVIATION /06Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...

Surface high pressure is again off to our northeast with only some cirrus moving overhead. This morning there will likely be more transient visibility restrictions at KLUK which will quickly lift around sunrise. Otherwise VFR conditions will prevail through the TAF issuance.
