... A cold front will bring rain and isolated thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and night. Above normal temperatures will continue through the week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/... Made some minor updates to sky cover and temperatures for the overnight period, otherwise the forecast remains on track for now.
Model timing of the cold front remains relatively consistent from yesterday, with rain moving in from northwest to southeast during the afternoon. Likely pops currently remain northwest of the Pittsburgh metro area for the afternoon commute. In their updated Day 2 convective outlook, the SPC added locations south and west of Butler to Latrobe in a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms. Overnight lows and daytime highs will range from 5 to 10 degrees warmer than the previous 24 hour period.
SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT 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.
