... A cold front will push east of the area early this evening. Weak cold front Wednesday. Strong high pressure Thursday. Another cold front on Saturday.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/... As of 931 PM Monday...
Cold front has cleared nearly the entire CWA with areas of light rain diminishing as a drier airmass spreads into the region. Have lowered POPs significantly for the rest of this evening.
Some clearing is still expected to occur overnight (especially across SE OH). This should allow temps to fall further with some areas experiencing frost and possibly a light freeze (Perry County). Not entirely confident that much of the frost advisory will experience frost, but maintained it for now given that the potential for frost still exists. Farther south and east across WV, E KY, and VA the cloud cover will be slower to erode. As such, I have increased min temps by a couple of degrees for those areas.
As of 138 PM Monday...
Latest radar mosaic shows a large area of rain was pushing northeast across the region. This rain was along and ahead of a strong cold front which was currently located from eastern Canada across northwest Pa, southeast and eastern Kentucky into the gulf states.
The front is expected to continue pushing southeast and should exit the forecast area by early evening. As the front pushes southeast, the rain should come to an end as cooler drier air filters in. Clouds should also begin to break up with much of lowland counties seeing partly cloudy to mostly clear skies by morning.
Combination of clearing skies, decreasing winds and cold high pressure should lead to the development of frost across portions of southeast Ohio and north-central West Virginia. Appears the best chance of frost will be across southeast Ohio where a Frost Advisory has been posted. In addition, current thinking is that temperatures across much of Perry County OH could be at or below freezing and a Freeze Warning has been issued for that county.
High pressure should continue building into the area on Tuesday with lots of sun and light winds in most locations. The only exception should be across the higher elevations where wind gusts up to 20 mph could still be possible.
Even with sunshine, temperatures will still be quite cool with readings expected to be around 10 degrees below normal
SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/... As of 246 PM Monday...
The period begins with a front stalled over the Carolinas as high pressure noses into the mid Ohio Valley. A wave moving along the front to our south may throw some clouds into our southern counties with a remote possibility of a shower making it as far north as Grundy or Welch Tuesday evening. A secondary front passes through with little fanfare Wednesday and a chilly, dry Continental Polar airmass follows. Overnight lows Wednesday night and Thursday night will fall below freezing in the mountains and close to freezing in the lower elevations with widespread frost a good bet both nights.
LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... As of 246 PM Monday...
A closed low over the southwest CONUS will send a piece of energy eastward on Friday. This shortwave will combine with a trough digging southeastward out of Canada to carve out a longwave trough over the eastern CONUS over the weekend. As this transpires, models indicate a good slug of moisture (rain) heads eastward into the region late Friday and exits Saturday morning. Another dry and chilly airmass then moves in behind the system but weaker shortwaves diving into the deep trough aloft may cause a few showers from time to time, and this could fall as snow in the mountains. Temps on Sunday are expected to struggle to reach the 50s in the lower elevations and then fall back toward freezing again Sunday night.
