Technical Forecast Discussion

Short term (Thursday 6/6 through Saturday 6/8)

A cold front will be stalled out just north of the region that will slowly push through the area as a shortwave trough moves off to the east later today. With the cold front nearby, cloud cover will still be present, but precipitation is unlikely as the cold front is weak and stationary. Strong ridging is expected to interact with the region on Friday bringing in warmer air from the south. Clouds will become more scattered, but still present due to the stationary front now being just south of the region. Moisture from the front may make for a humid day on Friday. The axis of the ridge will be over SE Ohio on Saturday, but a low pressure system will bring in clouds and a small chance of showers around late afternoon as diurnal heating will promote updrafts at this time.

Long term (Sunday 6/9 through Tuesday 6/11)

Long wave troughing enters the region on Sunday that helps bring up a low pressure system from the south. This brings in moisture that could help produce isolated storms and showers for late Sunday afternoon and the evening. A cold front will push through the region on Monday bringing in clouds and rain. Convection could occur along the frontal boundary leading to storms in the afternoon. Short-lived high pressure will be in the area on Tuesday that will break up clouds before conditions become influenced by a deep upper level trough later into Tuesday.
