000 FXUS61 KILN 221948 AFDILN Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington OH 348 PM EDT Sat Jul 22 2017 .SYNOPSIS...
-- Changed Discussion --
A humid airmass will combine with daytime heating and mid level disturbances to produce a threat for thunderstorms through Monday. High pressure and dry conditions are expected for Tuesday into Wednesday. Another system will bring additional showers and thunderstorms to the region for Thursday.

&& .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/...
-- Changed Discussion --
Storms firing on the instability of daytime heating and a sufficiently moist lower level will continue to spark this afternoon and early evening. Highest potential threat is heavy rain with tremendous rainfall rates over 2"/hr and the chance for those storms to train over a particular area. Flash flood watch was considered but held off given the uncertainty of the placement and evolution of the event today and tonight. Heavy rain was introduced to the forecast as a compromise. Heat indicies in the south are in the established advisory/warning area and will likely be modified this afternoon with blowoff cloud cover limiting runaway temperatures, but mid 70s and higher dewpoints increasing the oppressive nature of the airmass. Will let the advisory/warning expire at 8pm. All indications are for a pseudo w-e line of storms to drop south tonight. This may occur a few hours earlier than models are forecasting and could be initiating at the issuance of this AFD.

&& .SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/...
-- Changed Discussion --
Temperatures will not be able to return to the lower 90s and the threat for heat indicies is significantly lowered. However, humid and sticky conditions will most definitely persist. Storms that are around early in the day will probably push east as a surface boundary sets up sw-ne and conditions improve from nw-se as the day progresses.

&& .LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
-- Changed Discussion --
Pattern change will offer break from the heat and humidity. Weak front pushing through may bring widely scattered showers/storms Monday afternoon. Have included small pop for this mainly in the south/southeast portions of forecast area. High pressure builds in for Tuesday and Wednesday with seasonal temps with lower dewpoints. Another cold front will approach late Wednesday night and push through Thursday and Thursday night with scattered showers and storms. Front should continue to the south and east Friday with cooler and less humid air back in for Friday and Saturday.

&& .AVIATION /19Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/... Until showers and thunderstorms hit the TAF sites, VFR conditions will be present in a muggy atmosphere. Overnight may see vsbys drop to the MVFR category in mist, and storms will remain possible at any time for entire forecast area through the next 24-30 hours. Model guidance is problematic and timing/occurrence/placement of storms remains in high question in this moist and conditionally unstable airmass. Will try to limit thunderstorm potential to where it has the highest probability...likely later this evening and overnight. OUTLOOK...Thunderstorms will be possible Sunday and Thursday. && .ILN WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... OH...Heat Advisory until 8 PM EDT this evening for OHZ070>072- 078>081-088.
