457 FXUS61 KPBZ 211831 AFDPBZ Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA 231 PM EDT Fri Apr 21 2017 .SYNOPSIS...
-- Changed Discussion --
Building high pressure has returned dry weather to the region for this evening; however, rain chances will be on the increase along and south of I 70 this weekend as low pressure develops toward the Southeastern United States.
-- End Changed Discussion --
&& .NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
-- Changed Discussion --
No major changes were needed for the near term forecast as residual showers south of I 68 have faded with frontal passage. Cool, dry high pressure will build and support seasonal overnight lows, but light rain chances will increase, mainly along and south of I 70 as a deepening southern stream low pressure system shunts moisture toward the Upper Ohio Region.
-- End Changed Discussion --
&& .SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
-- Changed Discussion --
That low is conjunction with a crossing northern stream upper trough is likely to generate rain south of the I 70 corridor on Saturday, then funnel moisture across I 68 through the weekend as it digs over the Southeast Conus. Have maintained chance POPs for that area into Monday with limitations expected from weak dynamics on the northern periphery of the low. Seasonal temperature can be expected throughout and only minor alterations were completed.

Dry weather and moderating temperature is expected next week as ridging ensues in advance of a Wrn CONUS trough. Temperature is expected to rise 10 to 20 degrees above average by late week.
