000 FXUS61 KILN 181123 AFDILN Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington OH 623 AM EST Thu Jan 18 2018 .SYNOPSIS... High pressure centered south of the region will extend up the western side of the Appalachians through the end of the week. This will keep southwesterly flow across the area, resulting in dry conditions and a gradual warming of temperatures. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/... Dry atmosphere in place will result in sunny skies today. Southwest winds across the region will only increase a bit from early morning speeds. Continued to forecast temperatures on the cooler side of guidance. && .SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/... Ridge of high pressure will extend from the Gulf Coast into the upper Ohio Valley through the period. May see some cirrus spilling into the area, but that should still allow for mainly clear skies. Southwest winds will persist which will allow gradual warm up to continue. However, still believe guidance is slightly too aggressive with warmer temperatures. && .LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/... Tranquil weather conditions will start out Friday night. Southerly flow will allow for temperatures to climb into the 30s and 40s for Saturday and 40s and 50s for Sunday. Some light rain will be possible at times this weekend, however rain is expected to be light and not widespread in coverage. Better chances for precipitation move into the region for Monday and into Monday evening as a frontal boundary approaches and moves through the region. Winds will pick up with the frontal boundary with some wind gusts around 30 to 40 mph. As colder air works in cannot rule out some light snow after the passage of the front. This system will move out of the region by Tuesday evening and there is not be a clear signal for any additional precipitation occurring in the long term. && .AVIATION /12Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
