&& .SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY/... Weak upper troughing will persist across Central PA through much of the weekend, as surface high pressure slowly drifts eastward through the region. This will result in mainly dry weather for most of the area, though areas in the higher terrain E-SE of PIT could see an isolated afternoon shower in closer proximity to the weak trough. A warming trend is also expected, with temperatures around 5 degrees above seasonal levels by the weekend. && .LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/... A weakening plains trough could return only minimal rain chances late Monday as it approaches. Building ridging thereafter should result in dry and warmer than average weather for much of next week. && .AVIATION /16Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
-- Changed Discussion --
While some low clouds remain, ZZV is the only IFR site as of 16Z. VFR conditions will be favored through this evening. Fog is again possible Saturday morning, given the recent moist conditions. Winds will remain light and variable. .Outlook... Conditions will gradually improve into the weekend as high pressure begins to take hold.
