&& .SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/... On Tuesday, the center of the upper low will lift into eastern KY. A rain band will lift northeast through the portions of the area in the morning, before coming scattered by afternoon. Below normal temperatures are expected on Monday as highs will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Tuesday night the upper low pulls off into the Appalachians. Drier air will begin to work in from the west, but there will be a lingering chance of showers. && .LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... High pressure will settle over the Ohio Valley on Wednesday with the next chance for rain occurring late Friday and Friday evening as an upper level trough moves towards the east coast. Another surface high will build behind it on Saturday with a return to southerly flow and warmer air advection occurring Sunday into next week. Temperatures will be muted through Saturday with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s, then rise into the 60s and 70s for early next week. Overnight lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s will occur until the warmer daytime temperatures early next week inhibit nighttime dropoffs. Any lingering rain on Wednesday or the period of showers expected on Friday should be relatively light in nature. && .AVIATION /00Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...

Showers will continue to rotate across the region early in the period. These could bring a temporary period of MVFR conditions, except at the Columbus terminals which should remain VFR. As showers diminish tonight, VFR will prevail. However, another surge of showers will spread north into the region towards or a little after 12Z. It appears that this will lower conditions to MVFR initially, but moistening of the low levels will eventually cause ceilings to drop to IFR. These IFR ceilings will persist through the end of the TAF period even as precipitation diminishes again late. OUTLOOK...IFR ceilings and MVFR visibilities will likely continue Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
