CLOUD COVER WILL INCREASE ACROSS THE AREA TODAY WITH AN UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IN PLACE ACROSS THE REGION. A FEW SPRINKLES OR LIGHT SHOWERS CANNOT BE RULED OUT ACROSS EXTREME NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE FA TODAY HOWEVER BELIEVED CHANCE WAS LOW ENOUGH TO NOT INCLUDE IN THE FORECAST AT THIS TIME. WITH THE INCREASE IN CLOUD COVER AND COOL AIRMASS IN PLACE ONLY EXPECT HIGH TEMPERATURES TO REACH INTO THE UPPER 60S TO MIDDLE 70S. WINDS WILL PICK UP FOR THE AFTERNOON AND INTO THE EARLY EVENING HOURS. SOME WIND GUSTS AROUND 20 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE.

MODELS ARE FAIRLY SIMILAR IN TERMS OF POSITION...STRENGTH...AND TIMING OF SYNOPTIC SCALE SYSTEMS FOR FRIDAY. DIFFERENCES CONTINUE TO ARISE FROM RUN TO RUN AS WE HEAD INTO NEXT WEEKEND. FRIDAY...SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD EAST INTO THE REGION. COOLEST LOWS WILL LIKELY OCCUR FRIDAY MORNING FOLLOWED BY SOME AIRMASS MODIFICATION FOR FRIDAYS HIGHS. AS STATED...MODELS DIVERGE IN THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN BY NEXT WEEKEND. EMBEDDED S/WV ENERGY IS FORECAST TO ROUND WESTERN RIDGE AND MOVE EAST/SOUTHEAST TOWARD THE OHIO VALLEY. MODELS EITHER TRY TO BODILY MOVE THIS ENERGY THROUGH OUR REGION OVER THE WEEKEND...OR BRING IT JUST TO OUR WEST...AND ALLOW IT TO CLOSE OFF...MEANDERING OR DRIFTING SOUTHWARD INTO THE MID MS RIVER VALLEY. THE REASON FOR THE DIFFERENCES IS THAT THERE IS A STRUGGLE ON WHAT TO DO WITH THE ENERGY AS A LONG WAVE RIDGE DEVELOP OVER TOP OF IT FOR THE EASTERN TWO-THIRDS OF THE CONUS. GIVEN SUCH LOW CONFIDENCE ON THE OUTCOME...HAVE CONTINUED WITH PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES. ANY THREAT FOR SHOWERS/STORMS WOULD BE MORE DIURNALLY DRIVEN...AND HAVE PLACED A SIGHT CHANCE FOR AFTERNOON/EVENING PCPN ON SUNDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL REBOUND TO MORE LATE AUGUST VALUES WITH A GRADUAL INCREASE IN HUMIDITY.

&& .AVIATION /08Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... CIRCULATION AROUND A LARGE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IN THE GREAT LAKES WILL SPREAD CLOUDS SOUTH ACROSS THE TERMINALS THROUGH THE PERIOD. THERE IS SOME QUESTION HOW FAR SOUTH THESE CLOUDS GET. KDAY TO KCMH/KLCK WILL HAVE CEILINGS THE LONGEST WITH TERMINALS FURTHER SOUTH PERHAPS ONLY HAVING SCATTERED TO BROKEN CLOUDS. EITHER WAY CLOUD HEIGHTS ARE SUCH THAT CONDITIONS WILL BE VFR. WINDS WILL VEER TO MORE WESTERLY DURING THE DAY AND THEN BACK AND BECOME LIGHTER LATE IN THE PERIOD. IF THERE ARE FEW CLOUDS IN THE CINCINNATI AREA LATE THEN THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR VISIBILITY RESTRICTIONS DEVELOPING AT KLUK IN SHALLOW FOG. OUTLOOK...NO SIGNIFICANT WEATHER EXPECTED. && .ILN WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... OH...NONE. KY...NONE. IN...NONE. && $$ SYNOPSIS...NOVAK NEAR TERM...NOVAK SHORT TERM...NOVAK LONG TERM...HICKMAN AVIATION...
