000 FXUS61 KILN 060519 AFDILN AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILMINGTON OH 119 AM EDT MON JUL 6 2015 .SYNOPSIS... UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL SLOWLY MOVE NEAR SOUTHEASTERN PORTIONS OF THE AREA TONIGHT BEFORE BEGINNING TO MOVE TO THE EAST ON MONDAY. A FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL APPROACH THE REGION ON TUESDAY BEFORE STALLING OUT ACROSS THE AREA THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/... SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE INCHING VERY SLOWLY NORTHWEST AND ARE JUST ABOUT TO THE LEWIS COUNTY LINE. EXPECT THUNDER THREAT TO BEGIN TO DROP OFF WITH LOSS OF DAYTIME HEATING SO WILL JUST HANG ON TO A SLIGHT CHANCE ACROSS THE FAR SOUTHEAST FOR THE NEXT HOUR OR TWO. OTHERWISE...LOW CHANCE POPS FOR SHOWERS WILL PERSIST ACROSS OUR FAR EAST/SOUTHEAST THROUGH THE NIGHT AS THE UPPER LEVEL LOW PUSHES SLOWLY EAST. LOWS TONIGHT WILL BE IN THE LOW TO MID 60S. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/... SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL CONTINUE ACROSS EASTERN PORTIONS OF THE FA ON MONDAY BEFORE THE UPPER LEVEL LOW BEGINS TO MOVE EAST. AS IT DOES PRECIPITATION CHANCES WILL GRADUALLY DECREASE ACROSS THE AREA. WITH CLOUDS AROUND DURING THE DAY ON MONDAY LIMITED TEMPERATURES TO GENERALLY THE LOW 80S WITH SOME TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE WEST NEARING THE MIDDLE 80S WHERE THERE WILL BE A LITTLE LESS CLOUD COVER. A WEAK DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT. NOT EXPECTING MUCH PRECIPITATION WITH THIS FEATURE. A BETTER CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION WILL BE TUESDAY AFTERNOON INTO TUESDAY NIGHT AS A COLD FRONT APPROACHES AND THEN STALLS OUT ACROSS THE REGION. AN ISOLATED DAMAGING WIND THREAT WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH THESE STORMS AND SOME OF THE STORMS MAY PRODUCE HEAVY RAINFALL. && .LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/... DISTURBANCES MOVING THROUGH NEARLY ZONAL FLOW ALONG WITH A QUASI- STATIONARY FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL RESULT IN PERIODS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS INTO THURSDAY. CLOUDS AND PRECIPITATION SHOULD LIMIT HIGHS BUT LOWS WILL BE ABOVE NORMAL. 12Z MODELS HAVE TRENDED TOWARDS STRENGTHENING THE UPPER RIDGE OVER THE SOUTHEAST STATES LATE IN THE WEEK. THE PERIPHERY OF THIS RIDGE PUSHES INTO THE OHIO VALLEY WHILE AT THE SURFACE THE BOUNDARY APPEARS TO WEAKEN AND LIFT NORTH. THIS WILL ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO WARM AND GENERATE MODERATE INSTABILITY. SO EVEN WEAK FORCING...WHICH CANNOT BE RESOLVED WELL THAT FAR OUT IN TIME...COULD PRODUCE SOME CONVECTION. THUS CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...ALBEIT LOWER THAN MID WEEK...WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE WEEKEND. && .AVIATION /06Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
