000 FXUS61 KPBZ 240515 AAC AFDPBZ Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA 115 AM EDT Sun Sep 24 2017 .SYNOPSIS... High pressure will maintain warm and dry weather through the middle of next week. && .NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/... No changes to the overnight period. Another dry and warm day with plenty of sunshine and light winds. && .SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/... The ridge over much of the eastern CONUS will only build further Monday. Mostly clear skies and unseasonably warm temperatures will continue. Highs will hit the 90 degree mark across the lower terrain. The persistent and impressive ridge will begin to slowly push eastward Tuesday in response to trough digging into the Dakotas. Only change in our weather would be an increase in high cirrus clouds and temps a couple of degrees cooler then Monday. && .LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/... Guidance still showing a pattern change eventually coming towards the latter half of the week. This should effectively end the recent warm streak we`ve been on, beginning Thursday. The cold front that ushers this change, looks to bring little in the way of precipitation. Showers can`t be completely ruled out late Wednesday/Wednesday night, but if showers are able to develop, they will be very light. Dry conditions will return by the end of the week and into the weekend. && .AVIATION /05Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/... Other than local morning fog, VFR conditions and light wind are expected through the TAF period under high pressure. .Outlook... Restrictions are possible with a Wed night cold front. && .PBZ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... MD...None. OH...None. PA...None. WV...None. && $$ is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
