Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA
802 AM EDT Fri Jul 30 2021

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure will provide dry and seasonably cool conditions
through Saturday.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
A few showers and a thunderstorm or two will continue to slide
southeast through Preston and Tucker Counties in WV this morning.
This transpires as the cold front finally slides south out of the
forecast area by midday. A pop up shower still seems possible in
Tucker County this afternoon but the forecast should remain dry for
the most part. High pressure building and centered in the Upper
Midwest will continue to nose into the area from the west. This will
clear out our sky cover heading into tonight along with cooler temps.


&&

.SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
High pressure will keep the area dry through Saturday. Temperatures
will run below seasonal averages under continued cold advection.

Another shortwave within the broad eastern U.S. upper trough will
push a weak sfc cold front through the region late Sunday,
increasing precipitation chances.

&&

.LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/...
High pressure should resume influence over the upper Ohio River
Valley through much of next week under weak upper troughing, with
temperature near to slightly below seasonal averages.

&&

.AVIATION /12Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
With the cold front sliding south today and a few lingering showers
in Tucker County, some lingering low level moisture is present behind
the front. This has lead to some low level cigs at most of the
terminals. However, high pressure from the west will slide east
leading to drier air approaching and gusty northwest winds of 15 to
20 knots. This will lead to clearing skies through the rest of the
day and into tonight.

.Outlook...
Restrictions are possible with a Sunday cold front.

&&

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