Technical Forecast Discussion

Short term (Sunday 3/10 through Tuesday 3/12)

The upper level trough continues to move out of the region to the east as upper level ridging continues to build approaching from the west. Flow throughout all level will have a northwesterly component on Monday as high pressure begins to take over. Cloud clearing will continue through tonight as a result of high pressure leading to fair weather on Monday. WAA is also present as the ridge begins to influence the temperature gradient allowing warmer air to move northward. High pressure will be over Southern Ohio on Tuesday continuing the mentioned weather trends.

Long term (Wednesday 3/13 through Saturday 3/16)

Upper level ridging grows stronger due to the trough out west beginning to dig. This will create a low pressure system out in the Central Plains. Some moisture ahead of this will push through the region mid-Wednesday that will create some cloud cover, but also serve to insulate heat and bring highs up near the low 60s. Rain showers will form ahead of the warm front that will be over the region early Thursday. WAA will maximize on this day as the warm sector of the system passes through. This will be shortlived as another round of showers begins the passage of the cold front where highs drops down the the high 30s on Friday. Drier air moves in Saturday that leads to fairer weather.
