... Quieter weather is expected today as high pressure builds over the Great Lakes.
NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/... Height rises, and a surface high, will keep the day dry. Northwest flow will hold temperatures near the climatological average.
SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY/... Heights will continue to rise tonight, as the region rests on the northern edge of a building Eastern CONUS ridge. A series of upper level waves, moving through the Great Lakes, will flatten the ridge Saturday afternoon and eventually a shortwave trough will find its way through the region. Atmospheric instability and shear will increase on Saturday, and surface temperatures should get a boost as sunshine is expected Saturday afternoon. As the region remains well entrenched in the warm sector, mid-level temperatures will work to limit convection until the trough arrives late in the day. Upper level energy will move through quickly Saturday evening so any convection will dissipate Saturday night.
As heights continue to slowly fall Saturday night and Sunday, models are hinting at a weak boundary stalling over the northern half of the region Sunday morning. By this time, the flow aloft will be zonal and another wave of energy will sprint toward the area Sunday afternoon. A surface wave will develop over the upper Mid-West and move eastward along the stalled boundary late Sunday. The aforementioned upper level wave will work to maintain decreasing 500mb heights, and the stalled front will be slowly directed toward Northern WV Sunday evening. This movement will force the midwest surface low to drift southward as well. This setup would promote a period of widespread showers and possibly thunderstorms late Sunday that will drift southward Sunday evening.
LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/... The long term will be dominated by the strength and placement of the Eastern CONUS ridge. The area will lie on the northern periphery of said ridge, meaning the warm and active pattern will continue. Chances of showers and storms will continue throughout this period as weak upper-level troughs quickly pass our CWA.
