WARM AND MOIST SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL RESULT IN SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE EARLY EVENING HOURS.

ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE PRESENT ACROSS THE AREA THIS AFTERNOON AND INTO THE EARLY EVENING HOURS. WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO GUST AROUND 20 TO 25 MPH THROUGH THIS TIME AS WELL. EXPECT HIGH TEMPERATURES GENERALLY IN THE MIDDLE TO UPPER 80S ACROSS THE AREA.
-- End Changed Discussion --
&& .SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH WEDNESDAY/... BETTER FORCING WILL WORK ITS WAY IN FROM THE NORTHWEST TONIGHT AS LOW LEVEL CONVERGENCE INCREASES AHEAD OF THE APPROACHING COLD FRONT. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO BECOME MORE NUMEROUS FROM THE NORTHWEST THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. SOME TIMING DIFFERENCES STILL EXIST BETWEEN THE MODELS HOWEVER AS TO HOW FAST THE FRONT WILL PUSH INTO OUR AREA. BOTH THE 00Z ECMWF AND CMC REMAIN SLOWER WITH THEIR TIMING COMPARED TO THE 00Z GFS AND NAM. WILL STICK WITH FORECAST PERSISTENCE WHICH IS FAIRLY CLOSE TO A BLEND OF THE VARIOUS SOLUTIONS...SPREADING CATEGORICAL POPS DOWN ACROSS ABOUT THE NORTHWEST HALF OF OUR FA THROUGH DAYBREAK WEDNESDAY MORNING...TAPERING DOWN TO LOW CHANCE ACROSS OUR FAR SOUTHEAST. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD THEN SAG SOUTH ACROSS THE REST OF OUR AREA THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING. HIGH PRESSURE AND A DRIER AIRMASS WILL BUILD IN BEHIND THE FRONT FOR TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY. EXPECT HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE LOW TO MID 80S BOTH TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. && .LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/... MORE ROBUST HEIGHT RISES IN THE OH VALLEY ON THURSDAY AS ENERGY FALLS INTO THE NWRN CONUS AND A STRETCHED OUT POSITIVE TILT TROUGH BECOMES APPARENT FROM THE PAC NW INTO CNTL CANADA. AS RIBBON OF HIGHER PWAT TO OUR SOUTH/WEST RETURNS NORTHWARD AS WELL AND BEGINS TO BE IMPINGED ON BY A LITTLE STRONGER SWLY LOW/MID LEVEL FLOW. THUS...HAVE 20-35% RAIN CHANCES DEVELOPING FROM SW TO NE ACROSS THE SOUTH/WESTERN HALF OF THE FORECAST AREA THURS AND CONT INTO THURS NIGHT AND FRIDAY. AGAIN...NOT A GREAT DEAL OF SYNOPTIC FORCING HERE...BUT AREA GETTING GRAZED BY ERN FRINGE OF MORE APPRECIABLE MOISTURE TRANSPORT INTO AREAS TO OUR WEST. CAN/T RULE OUT SOME SCT STORMS...OR A ROGUE MCS DEVELOPING TO OUR WEST AND MOVING INTO IND/OH THURS/THURS NIGHT/FRIDAY IN THIS PATTERN. MESOSCALE DETAILS LACKING IN THE COARSE ENSEMBLE AND DETERMINISTIC FCSTS AT THIS POINT. DO FEEL COMFORTABLE IN GETTING DAYTIME MAX TEMPS BACK UP INTO THE UPPER 80S MOST AREAS THURS/FRI WITH DWPTS REMAINING WELL INTO THE 60S. WILL FEEL A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE FOR EARLY SEPT BUT NOT AT ALL UNCOMMON. MOST AREAS WILL BE DRY WED/THU/FRI...BUT AS WE`VE SEEN JUST ABOUT ALL OF AUGUST...IT/S SELDOM WE GET BY WITHOUT A FEW STORMS SOMEWHERE AT PEAK HEATING IN THESE PATTERNS. SATURDAY/SUNDAY...FINALLY SOME APPRECIABLE HEIGHT FALLS ATTEMPT TO BEAT DOWN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AS THE NRN TIER FLOW BECOMES MORE PROGRESSIVE. AM HESITANT TO BELIEVE IT WILL HAPPEN AS QUICKLY AS DETERMINISTIC RUNS HAVE IT HAPPENING...SO HAVE ERRED WARMER ON SATURDAY TEMPS AHEAD OF DECENT COLD FRONT SHIFTING THRU GREAT LAKES. HAVE INCREASED RAIN CHANCES FRI NIGHT/SATURDAY/SAT EVE GIVEN ABOVE NORMAL PWAT AND WHAT SEEMS TO BE GOOD FORCING/FRONTAL CONVERGENCE SHIFTING THROUGH. FOR SUNDAY...WILL LINGER A SMALL CHANCE OF RAIN IN THE SOUTH IN THE MORNING...BUT IF PATTERN SLOWS DOWN EVEN A LITTLE THE FRONT MAY STILL BE LINGERING IN OUR SOUTH. AND LOOKING BEYOND DAY 7...JUST NOT SURE HOW FAR SOUTH THE FRONT WILL PUSH WHEN IT SEEMS SUBTROPICAL RIDGE /IN TIME/ WILL BUILD BACK NORTH EARLY NEXT WEEK /DAY 8 OR 9/ SO ANY RESPITE FROM MUGGY/WARM TEMPS MAY BE SHORT-LIVED. && .AVIATION /18Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
