Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA
515 PM EDT Fri Apr 20 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure will provide dry weather through the weekend,
along with a warming trend towards seasonable temperatures.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/...
515pm...no changes to the evening period.

Previous discussion...
High pressure is expected to sit just to our north and
radiational cooling will be dominate with our clear skies.
Patchy frost may once again form on the grass before sunrise.

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/...
Another clear and beautiful day is expected Saturday/Saturday
night as we continue to sit under that high pressure centered in
Eastern Canada. Clouds, especially to our southern areas, will
be begin to form as as the upper level ridge diminishes.
However, temperatures will still remain seasonable in the low to
mid 60s.

&&

.LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
A low pressure system that is currently propagating west from
the Rockies and into the Ark/LA/MS will move north into our
region Tuesday evening/Wednesday morning that will bring
scattered rain showers. WPC`s QPF outlook has just under an inch
of total of precipitation during this time period.

Looking ahead...into Thursday and Friday...there is some
consistency in the models that a few more quick moving low
pressure systems will keep us mostly wet as we head into the
weekend.

&&

.AVIATION /21Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
VFR conditions under high pressure through the TAF period. NW
winds should also diminish this eve with a decreasing pressure
gradient.

OUTLOOK...
Restriction potential returns with Tue low pressure.

&&

.PBZ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
MD...None.
OH...None.
PA...None.
WV...None.
