Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA
157 AM EDT TUE JUN 28 2016
A shower is possible today as an upper level system swings
through. Cooler and less humid conditions are expected Wednesday
.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/...
No major changes to the overnight period.
A weak cold front, which crossed the area overnight, will get hung
up over the far south. It will be waiting for a push, from a
rather vigorous shortwave trough which will begin to swing through
this afternoon. Cooler air will accompany this system and showers
are possible ahead of the trough, particularly in locations near
the stalled front. Have included low pops today, again mainly over
the far south.
.SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/...
Dry and mild high pressure will dominate through the period, with
temperatures just under or near the seasonal averages.
.LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/...
Shower and thunderstorm chances return later Friday with the
passage of the next front. Upper level pattern looks seasonable
and dry through the July 4th weekend and into early next week.
.AVIATION /06Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
VFR conditions are forecast through the period, save for some
spotty MVFR fog during the hours around sunrise. Altocumulus
overnight will transition to cumulus by day. A moisture-starved
cold front will drop across today, with some scattered rain
showers possible. Did not include mention in TAF at this time
given their brief nature and minimal impact.
.OUTLOOK /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/...
Restrictions are possible with a Friday cold front.
