(Today through Wednesday) Issued at 330 AM EDT TUE MAY 31 2016 The short term period will feature quiet weather and warm temperatures as high pressure takes hold of the region. Latest satellite imagery shows some high level clouds pushing into the region but for the most part skies remain clear. Clear skies should prevail through the morning before some cu develops due to daytime heating. Any precip that develops in the afternoon should stay well southeast of the region. Skies are expected to clear again Tuesday night, potentially setting up valley fog again. Mid to upper level moisture begins increasing Wednesday morning as return flow sets up. High pressure shifts off to the northeast, allowing for shower chances to return by Wednesday afternoon. These showers will likely be contained to the higher terrain along the VA/KY border. Temperatures will remain on the warm side with afternoon highs peaking in the mid 80s. Morning lows will feature ridge valley splits with valleys potentially dipping into the uppers 50s while ridges stay in the 60s. .LONG TERM...(Wednesday night through Monday) Issued at 330 AM EDT TUE MAY 31 2016 The long term discussion will be issued shortly.

&& .AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Tuesday night) ISSUED AT 145 AM EDT TUE MAY 31 2016 With high pressure taking hold of the area, skies will remain clear. The only exception are some high level clouds moving in from the west. However, these high level clouds will not have any impact on fog development tonight in the river valleys. There isn`t much moisture to work with, but MVFR visibility and BR is still possible at the TAF sites, except JKL. After the fog dissipates, can expect VFR conditions to prevail through the remainder of the period. Winds will remain light through the period. && .JKL Watches/Warnings/Advisories...
