Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA
935 PM EDT Sat Jun 6 2020

.SYNOPSIS...
Mostly dry weather is expected through early next week under high
pressure.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 8 AM SUNDAY MORNING/...
Satellite imagery and area observations now show a cold front has
pushed southward into central West Virginia, leaving the PBZ forecast
area void of any showers. Building high pressure over the Great
Lakes should result in a mostly clear sky overnight. Radiational
cooling and ongoing cold advection will lead to temperature near the
climatological average tonight.

&&

.SHORT TERM /8 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/...
Sfc high pressure building under a NE CONUS upper trough should
result in dry and cooler than average weather tonight through Sunday.
A ridge will build over the Mississippi River Valley; dry, warmer
weather is expected through early next week.

&&

.LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
Dry and hot weather is expected Tuesday as the ridge axis builds and
shifts over the Ohio River Valley. However, by late Tuesday the
remnants of a tropical disturbance (Cristobal) will quickly lift out
of northern Mississippi River Valley becomes embedded in a longwave
trough over the Midwest. Warm, moist advection will prevail and
shower and thunderstorm chances should return mid-week. A longwave
trough is then progged to persist across the NE CONUS through the end
of the week, maintaining periodic shower chances and cooler
temperatures.

&&

.AVIATION /02Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
VFR conditions are in place and will continue to be for the period
as high pressure slowly infiltrates the area behind the cold front
which has pushed southeast into the Virginia`s. Besides some cumulus
this evening dissipating, skies will become cloud free overnight and
into the the day tomorrow. Northwest flow behind the front will
continue tomorrow with some gusts up to 20 knots at times tomorrow
afternoon.

.Outlook...
The next chance for general restrictions will come with the advance
of midweek low pressure toward the Great Lakes.
