The late morning updated featured only cosmetic changes to POPs and cloud cover as the cold front is completing a sweep of the region. Dry weather under building high pressure will be marred only be some residual showers along the I 68 corridor. Cold and dry advection will support cooler temperature tonight. Overall near term temperature will remain near the seasonal averages.

&& .SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
-- Changed Discussion --
A northern stream upper trough is progged for approach and passage tonight and Saturday as a deepening southern stream low tracks across the the Lower Ohio Valley. This scenario should result in increasing rain chances for the region, but with primary focus along and south of the I 70 corridor. That low is expected to continue shunting moisture across I 68 through the weekend as timing will be complicated as the low cuts off and deepens. Seasonal temperature will continue into early next week.
