000 FXUS61 KILN 250824 AFDILN Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington OH 424 AM EDT Sun Jun 25 2017 .SYNOPSIS... Surface high pressure will bring dry weather today along with below normal temperatures. On Monday, an upper level trough swinging through the Great Lakes will bring a chance of showers thunderstorms late Monday afternoon into Monday night. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/... High pressure centered over the nrn Great Plains will nose in to the region from the west today. Cool air aloft will allow for scattered diurnal cu to develop again this afternoon. High temperatures will be about 5 to 10 degrees below normal, ranging in the 70s from north to south. && .SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM MONDAY/... The diurnal cu will diminish with sunset, but a isolated cloud or two could drop through the region tonight in the fast upper flow. With mostly clear skies, temperatures will cool into the lower and mid 50s. Monday into Monday night a H5 s/w will swing through the base of the upper trof over the Great Lakes. The consensus of the models is for scattered showers and thunderstorms to develop Monday afternoon and then move east Monday night. Upped PoPs to chance for Monday and Monday night. Temperatures will remain about 10 degrees below normals with highs ranging from 70-75. && .LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/... High pressure builds back in for Tuesday bringing dry weather. Highs will be a little warmer on Tuesday, reaching the mid 70s. With a turning of winds to the south on Wednesday, a more appreciable warmup will begin, with temperatures returning to the 80s. As a more progressive pattern begins to set up for Thursday and beyond, model differences become more pronounced, leading to lower confidence -- especially in precipitation timing through the rest of the week. There is agreement that a frontal zone will set up east-to- west across the southern Great Lakes, with the ILN CWA in the warm sector within solid deep-layer southwesterly flow. As convection develops at the north end of this warm sector, and along the frontal area, there will eventually be some propagation downstream which may impact the ILN CWA -- perhaps on Thursday afternoon, and then again as additional waves of precipitation occur going into Friday. How much of the CWA remains capped is a question, as is the exact position of the front. Because of this, PoPs will be kept on the lower side of things for now, with a model blend suggesting higher precipitation chances north of the ILN CWA. Differences in the evolution of an upstream trough going into the weekend will preclude more than very low confidence in the forecast late Friday into Saturday. && .AVIATION /08Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/... VFR conditions will prevail over the Ohio Valley through the period. Scattered to sometimes broken 5kft cu deck will persist into the evening before clearing. Winds during the day will pick up from the west-northwest and see gusts to 20 to 25kt. OUTLOOK...No significant weather expected. && .ILN WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... OH...None. KY...None.
