000 FXUS61 KPBZ 260831 AFDPBZ Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA 431 AM EDT TUE JUL 26 2016 .SYNOPSIS... Warm and dry weather can be expected until the approach of low pressure on Thursday. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/... Very little changes needed for the forecast today. Have continued the idea of leaving pops near the Mason-Dixon line, as surface boundary will remained stalled over Northern West Virginia, and a weak shortwave will ride along the front this afternoon. Have kept higher cloud cover over the south as well. Temperatures again will be above normal. && .SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY/... Zonal flow/flat ridging should maintain dry, but continued warm weather through Wednesday. Thereafter, POPs will be on the increase with the approach of low pressure, timing of which remains questionable on Thursday. && .LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/... A series of shortwaves and development of a broad, but shallow trough over the Eastern CONUS is forecast to support periodic rain chances and seasonal temperatures through the weekend. && .AVIATION /09Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... While forcing for precipitation has shifted mostly south of the area, a fairly moist surface layer remains in its wake as evidenced by dewpoints straddling 70 degrees still at this time. While high clouds will be common at all sites through the period, some fog may well develop overnight toward morning. This will be especially true in areas that received heavier rain on Monday. Whatever fog does form should mix out fairly efficiently on Tuesday after sunrise with VFR conditions resuming even as high clouds remain fairly pervaise. Fries .OUTLOOK /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/... The next chance for restrictions will come with Thursday night low pressure. && .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.
