... A cold front will bring rain and isolated thunderstorms during the early afternoon/evening hours. Temperatures will continue to be above the climatological average throughout the week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
Currently some isolated rain showers are being observed on the radar ahead of the cold front in Eastern Ohio, however due to the lack of daytime heating cells remain elevated and have lack of growth. As the day progresses, low level winds will increase due to a tightening pressure gradient and daytime heating will mix these winds aloft to the surface; 30-35kt gusts may occur ahead of the front.
Model timing of the cold front remains relatively consistent from yesterday, a broken line of showers/thunderstorms will move northwest to southeast during the afternoon. Likely pops currently remain northwest of the Pittsburgh metro area for the afternoon commute. The Day 1 convective outlook continues to place our region under a 'Marginal' risk for severe storms. The main threat for these storms will be high winds due to high effective wind shear. Overnight lows and daytime highs will range from 5 to 10 degrees warmer than the previous 24 hour period.
SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/... Likely pops continue Tuesday evening, with only a lingering shower possible from Morgantown to the south and east Wednesday morning. The models continue the trend of pushing the front well south of the region, moving as far south as Kentucky and Virginia before rising back to the north again Thursday with an additional wave of low pressure. Temperatures will remain a couple degrees above normal.
LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/... It remains to be seen whether the southern stream storm will be able to phase with the northern jet stream, and this will likely determine just how much rain coverage there is Thursday night. For now have introduced likely pops south and east of Pittsburgh, but this may expand in future forecasts. The low will continue to develop as it moves east, and all rain should come to an end by Friday evening. High pressure will build in briefly on Saturday, then the ECMWF/GFS diverge in the path of the next system, the GFS taking a more northern route across the Great Lakes while the ECMWF generally stays south of the Great Lakes and goes through the Mid-Atlantic states. Went with chance pops Saturday night and Sunday before drying out pops Sunday night and introducing pops once again on Monday with another system developing in the Plains. Overall, temperatures will be near or above normal through the extended period.
