606 PM MDT Fri Jun 11 2021 .AVIATION... 00Z TAF CYCLE A backdoor front currently near a KRTN to KSXU to KCVS line will continue it`s southwestward progression overnight. This front is expected to result in gusty east and southeast winds at KABQ and KSAF, respectively, around sunset. Areas of MVFR cigs are possible at KLVS and KTCC late tonight into Saturday morning, gradually clearing off during the early afternoon. Wdly sct strong to severe storms are possible for the eastern plains Saturday afternoon/evening w/ large hail and strong outflow winds the main hazards. 33 && .PREV DISCUSSION...334 PM MDT Fri Jun 11 2021... .SYNOPSIS... Hot temperatures will subside some with a cold front on the eastern plains this weekend, but they will ramp up for central and northwest areas as a high pressure system moves overhead this weekend into next week. Record and near record high temperatures are expected during this period, especially over central and western areas. There will also be a chance for thunderstorms, especially along and east of the central mountain chain Saturday where some storms may turn severe. Severe storms may return to northeast New Mexico Sunday. After spotty storms Monday, thunderstorm chances will increase mainly along and west of the central mountain chain Tuesday through the remainder of next week. && .DISCUSSION... SHORT TERM...(TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT)... 595 dam high pressure will begin to move northward over New Mexico through Saturday evening. The western and central areas of the state remain dry and hot. The backdoor cold front has made its way into northeastern New Mexico and as far as Clovis this afternoon. As the front pushes westward this evening, it`s possible for the middle Rio Grande Valley to get an east canyon wind with gusts of 25-30 kts. Models show low clouds/fog sticking around east central areas through mid morning tomorrow. The latest HRRR smoke runs also show a possibility for smoke to return overnight. On Saturday, the flow veers southeastward and brings in additional moisture across the eastern plains. Temperatures will cool slightly across the east on Saturday and a few sprinkles may be possible during the morning. During the afternoon, steep mid-level lapse rates, near 2500 J/kg MLCAPE, and 30-35 kts 0-6 km bulk shear will aid in organized convection across northeast and east central New Mexico, where there is a marginal risk for strong to severe storms. Large hail and strong winds will be the primary threats. Storm motion will be to the south and east. Some storms across the central mountain chain will be on the drier side with little to no precipitation. Near record highs continue across the west. Storms will move eastward into Texas by late Saturday evening. 31 LONG TERM...(SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY)... A 500 mb high pressure system centered over Magdalena Sunday night will migrate slowly northwestward over the Four Corners by Tuesday, where it will remain until Thursday when it is forecast to drift over northern AZ. This will result in high temperatures around 5 to 15 degrees above normal this weekend through the middle of the coming week. Record and near record high temperatures are expected for many areas with the potential for Heat Advisories over central and northwest parts of the forecast area Sunday through the middle of next week. There will also be thunderstorms in the forecast. The area from the Sangre de Cristo Mountains eastward will be favored Sunday afternoon and evening, where a few strong to severe storms will be possible. As the upper high migrates over the northwest corner of the state, better low level moisture will be drawn northwestward into the state as well, with increasing thunderstorm chances, especially toward the middle of next week. Storm motions will be from northeast to southwest starting Tuesday, favoring central and western areas for convection. 44 && .FIRE WEATHER... High pressure centered over central Mexico will begin migrating northward into New Mexico and over the Four Corners region over the weekend and into early next week. A backdoor front currently draped over eastern New Mexico and moist return flow will provide additional moisture for afternoon showers and thunderstorms over the weekend. However, some of these storms may be on the drier side with dry lightning possible over the central mountain chain. In addition, slightly cooler temperatures can be expected across the east. Up to 15 hours of single digit humidity will be possible on Saturday across western areas, where near record temperatures are forecast. Higher humidities push further west on Sunday, but Super Haines may exist through at least Tuesday across the west. As the upper high becomes placed over the Four Corners region, a "reverse monsoon" pattern may set up, with the northern and western high terrain most likely to see any precipitation. Towards the end of next week, another boundary may slip into eastern New Mexico, where more moisture may become available. 31 && .ABQ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... None. && $$

1102 PM EDT Fri Jun 11 2021 .SYNOPSIS... Low pressure along the Mid Atlantic coast will slowly push out to sea this weekend. A cold front will sweep southeast across Pennsylvania Sunday afternoon, with secondary shortwaves diving across the region Monday and Tuesday. Canadian high pressure will then build into the area during midweek and pass off the east coast by next Friday. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/... Convection in Warren and McKean Counties early this evening dropped generally 0.5 to locally 1.0 inch per MRMS estimates. With showers now dissipating and skies becoming clear, patchy fog will become likely after midnight given the wet ground and decreasing wind as high pressure builds in. Elsewhere low stratus and cool, drizzly weather continues across much of central PA this evening. Temps will drop just a few degrees, running in the upper 50s through the overnight with lingering clouds and weakening easterly flow. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/... A drier day is in store for most areas on Saturday thanks to weak high pressure. Morning cloudiness will break for at least partial sunshine, although there is some uncertainty regarding how long the clouds will linger. On the most recent update, we hold overcast skies through noon and partly to mostly cloudy skies thereafter. The arrival of a weak shortwave trough during max heating of the afternoon could produce spotty PM showers or t-storm. Maxes bounce back to the near to slightly above average range...a +10 to +25F delta-T vs. Friday. Weak surface low moves northeast Sunday over Western PA along with shortwaves in northwest flow aloft is enough to bring likely POPs to Central PA with a chance for thunder. Stronger short-wave and trough moves across Sunday night into Monday continuing chance POPs. && .LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/... Still can`t rule out a shower in spots Tuesday associated with the passage of another shortwave in northwest flow. After that, all medium range guidance supports several days of fair weather, as Canadian high pressure builds in from the Grt Lks. Expect low humidity, mainly clear skies and temperatures averaging a few degrees below average Tue-Thu, with Thursday morning potentially quite chilly directly under the surface high. Moderating temperatures are expected by late next week, as the high passes off the coast and a return southwest flow develops. && .AVIATION /03Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/... A moist easterly flow will result in persistent low clouds and patchy drizzle over much of central Pa tonight. An area of rain over southeast Pa should push south of the region around 06Z, as associated low pressure system pushes off the coast. CIGs at 03Z are running in the IFR to low MVFR category and model soundings indicate little change overnight. However, latest RAP suggests some drier over NJ could work into eastern Pa late tonight, perhaps causing rising CIGS at KLNS. Significant improvement is likely Saturday, as easterly flow weakens and low level moisture mixes out. Forecast soundings indicate the most persistent low clouds will be over the highest terrain along the spine of the Alleghenies. However, even KJST and KBFD appear likely to become VFR by mid afternoon. Outlook... Sun...AM low cigs possible N Mtns. Sct PM tsra impacts possible. Mon...Sct PM tsra impacts possible.

854 PM MDT Fri Jun 11 2021 .SHORT TERM...(This evening through Sunday night) Issued at 239 PM MDT Fri Jun 11 2021 Satellite imagery and 500 RAP analysis showed southwest flow over the High Plains this afternoon, with high pressure above central Mexico and upper ridging extending from Texas to the Upper Midwest. At the surface, high pressure prevailed across the region behind last night`s cold front. At 2 PM MT, sunny skies were observed, with north winds gusting at 30 to 35 mph. Temperatures ranged in the mid 70s to mid 80s. For tonight, a closed low near North Dakota pushes northward into Canada, allowing the upper ridge to amplify over the Plains. Surface high pressure lingers, with temperatures falling into the 50s and light and variable winds. This weekend, ridging continues to build along the Plains and Rockies as a large trough develops off the west coast. This results in a warming trend (80s on Saturday and upper 80s/low 90s on Sunday) and dry conditions. Some guidance suggests that a disturbance could round the ridge both Saturday and Sunday nights. However, have kept our forecast dry due to the lack of moisture in the area and the likelihood that any precipitation should stay to our south. Otherwise, skies are anticipated to be sunny/clear with nightly temperatures in the 60s this weekend. .LONG TERM...(Monday through Friday) Issued at 157 PM MDT Fri Jun 11 2021 The long term period continues to look dry and warm. Heat index values will need to be watched though they currently look to be below 100. There also may be a few disturbances through the week and a pattern shift towards the end of the period. The pattern remains the same as previous forecasts with a high amplitude ridge aloft over the West-Central CONUS. This ridge will remain in place through Wednesday before retrograding slightly to the west and deamplifying as a cut-off low moves east across South- Central Canada. Near the surface, high pressure is expected to set up over much of the Plains with lower pressure over portions of the Rockies and to the southwest. The lower surface pressure should stay far enough away from the area to not really affect sensible weather conditions though a few disturbances may move off the Front Range. In short, with the ridge aloft and high pressure near the surface, the area will be dominated by subsidence and remain dry. Temperatures are also expected to be above average for this time of year in the 90`s. With lower dewpoints than this week, temperatures will likely be slightly higher and a lesser chance of morning clouds/fog than this past week. However, while the chance is lower, cloud cover could still develop in the mornings with an easterly component to the wind and dewpoints reaching the lower 60`s. If morning cloud cover develops, it will hinder high temperatures similar to this past week. Another thing to keep an eye on is guidance suggests a few low pressure systems could try to move off the Front Range. But they would likely be relatively weak and in an unfavorable environment to produce storms. When the upper level pattern changes later in the week, there could be a few changes to sensible conditions though relatively warm and dry weather still appears likely. First the ridge axis shifts west a bit which may lower the strength of the subsidence aloft. Second, there is suggestion that a low pressure system potentially in combination with a cold front could move through Thursday. This is reflected in the current forecast with high temperatures for Friday around 90 instead of in the 90`s. Precip chances still appear to be low, but it will need to be monitored if more moisture can move into the area or if the system can strengthen should it form. && .AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Saturday night) Issued at 854 PM MDT Fri Jun 11 2021 ...Optimal Aviation Weather... VFR conditions /clear skies/ will rule through the TAF period.

National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC
1015 PM EDT Fri Jun 11 2021 .SYNOPSIS... Daily afternoon and evening thunderstorms are expected through the weekend, and with subtropical moisture lingering over the region, they will pose a threat of localized flash flooding. A front will settle across the region early next week, promoting a slight chance for showers Monday and Tuesday. Hot and humid conditions can be expected those days, but somewhat drier and cooler high pressure will return by midweek. && .NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/... As of 10pm EDT Friday: Thunder has once again ended around the area this evening, though an isolated thunderstorm will still be possible overnight. Winds in the area are light and variable, with some fog possible by morning in fog prone areas, especially mountain valleys. With the upper trough positioned over the area tomorrow and the diffuse frontal zone expected to sag into western NC, convection should again blossom across the CWA Saturday afternoon, with likely PoPs again advertised in all areas. In terms of hazards: more of the same, with the threat of locally excessive rainfall persisting. There may be a slight uptick in the threat of pulse severe storms, particularly over the upper Savannah River Valley and Lakelands, where guidance suggests an increase above the modest levels of instability over that of the past several days. Temps will remain around normal. && .SHORT TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/... As of midday Fri: As front continues to slowly sag south across SC/GA Saturday night into Sunday morning, a weak coastal low is expected to develop via the shortwave near the NC/SC coast. That development, along with sfc high over the Mid-Atlantic, still looks to bring an easterly component to the low-level flow, which leads multiple guidance sources to show some continuing convection near the Blue Ridge Escarpment into the night, in addition to what develops near the front. The 12z HRRR and NAMNest however are not too excited by this possibility, so will keep PoPs low; the concern would be for possible anchoring of cells along the Escarpment in that scenario; MBE vectors are very short as it is. The weak easterly flow will continue into Sunday, but diminishing and/or backing to a less upslope direction as the low drifts offshore. The shortwave looks to be south and east of the CWA; heights should rise as it is replaced by an extension of the deep ridge over the Rockies/Plains. Dewpoints probably will be a tad lower but still and most likely remaining in the 60s. Midlevel height rises imply poor lapse rates above the PBL which, given lack of a trigger, suggests PoPs close to climo. Still looking at a bit of a wildcard with models depicting an unstable warm sector across the upper OH/TN Valleys ahead of a seasonally respectable cold front. Earlier runs suggested that the resultant activity could impinge on our mountain zones late Sunday or Sunday night, but this depiction has generally diminished. Deep shear and weak forcing just don`t look all that supportive of an MCS threat. Profiles will be somewhat drier Sunday than Saturday, so heavy rainfall potential may be slightly reduced although soils may be wetter after still another day of storms, so can`t say we won`t exactly be out of the flash-flood threat window. Sfc-midlevel theta-e lapses will be a bit stronger, so pulse storm wind damage threat may be a bit greater. Max temps will trend a little warmer compared to Saturday, near to slightly above climo. By Monday, the front appears to reach the CWA, as it picks up a little bit of a boost from a shortwave approaching from the Great Lakes and deepening the trough across the NE CONUS. With winds turning northwesterly through much of the mid to upper levels, deep drying does occur on the "cool" side of the front. Most of the models depict a convergence zone across the Carolina/Georgia Piedmont, and small PoPs will follow. Similar to the trend noted for Sunday, flood threat may diminish a bit in lieu of improving microburst threat where the drier air is able to work in. Downsloping and increasing thicknesses still look to produce max temps in the lower 90s for much of the Piedmont, but despite dewpoint pooling potentially keeping values in the upper 60s there, heat index concerns are not expected. && .LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/... As of 200 PM Fri: The drying trend will continue Monday night as cold front continues to push south and east, and dewpoints/PWATs continue to tumble across the CWA into Tuesday, looking likely to remain low thru the remainder of the period. A shortwave will swing across the area Tuesday on the periphery of a cutoff low over Quebec; the combination of this feature and the front leads to model QPF response mostly to our east, but we will maintain small PoPs over the eastern half of the area. Above-normal temps persist in downsloping flow Tue. Unmentionably low PoPs are fcst from Tue night to at least early Friday as continental sfc high migrates across the eastern CONUS, and max temps fall back to near normal. Various models depict a tropical/subtropical low approaching the Gulf Coast late in the week, but any moisture associated with it looks to affect our area after the end of the period, if at all. && .AVIATION /02Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/... At KCLT and elsewhere: Some areas of active convection continue this evening at a level a little above recent history. Gusts from convective outflow currently affecting both KGSP/KGMU and KCLT. Out flows are expected to last less than an hour, with further impacts from storms more limited subsequently. Upper system that has been driving afternoon thunderstorms for several days moves east on Saturday, along with broad frontal zone across the region. Axis of surface high pressure directly behind exiting trough will make winds northeasterly at KCLT by early Saturday morning. Reduction of moisture on Saturday will be slight, with afternoon thunder still expected most areas, though with some reduction in intensity. Activity around KCLT may be particularly weak on Saturday as KCLT will be behind back door front, and will experience the leading affects of drying. Outside of gusts from convection, southwesterly winds ahead of frontal zone, and northeasterly winds behind it will be limited to 5 to 15 kts. Fog and reduced CIGS will be possible in the morning due to moist airmass, with the best chances in mountain valleys and other fog- prone locations. Outlook: Modest drying moves in Sunday into next week. This will result in less coverage of diurnal convection each day, such that little in the way of convection is expected Tue and Wed. The potential for overnight/morning fog/low cigs should become increasingly confined to the mtn valleys next week.

942 PM EDT Fri Jun 11 2021 .SYNOPSIS... A passing wave is expected to trigger some light rain over southern New Hampshire tonight. High pressure returns for part of the weekend, but scattered afternoon showers may return on Saturday and Sunday. Low pressure forming nearby will keep conditions unsettled early next week with greatest chances for showers Monday into Tuesday. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/... 930PM Update... Adjusted PoPs based on radar as well as the latest few runs of near term guidance such as the HRRR. Radar and ASOS observations indicate that rain continues to fall across southwestern NH such as KEEN, and therefore PoPs were increased some in these locations. Expecting showers to become more widespread after midnight and move as far north as the Lakes Region of NH and ME. Other than some minor adjustments to temperatures and sky cover, the rest of the forecast remains on track. Previously... 630 PM Update...No significant changes to the forecast at this time. Showers are expected to increase in coverage across southern NH over the next few hours and the going forecast handles this well. Added some patchy fog to some central and northern zones overnight where cloud cover will be thinner. Previously... A piece of a weak and elongated shortwave continues to transit the area this afternoon, bringing widespread cloud cover and a few showers from central New Hampshire to the Maine coastline. These showers will move offshore over the next few hours, and a break in the precip will last through the evening. Then another weak wave will move in after midnight and bring a more significant round of showers across mainly southern areas. There remains poor consensus among the models on how potent and long lasting these showers will be, with some of the high res guidance like the HRRR suggesting rain would continue falling through after sunrise tomorrow morning, and many areas of southern NH seeing over 0.50in of rain. This is the higher end solution, which is quite possible, but due to the convective nature that this rain would fall I elected to continue with rainfall totals closer to 0.25" for now. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/... The system will pull away during the morning hours, with increasing sunshine progressing from north to the south through the day. The jet stream will be progressing eastward overhead tomorrow afternoon, which will likely provide enough instability for a few pop up showers tomorrow afternoon across interior areas. Partly to mostly sunny skies will be observed as a weak ridge of high pressure crests New England, but a weak passing trough tomorrow night will bring increasing clouds tomorrow night, limiting how far the temperatures will fall. Another weak ridge of high pressure will begin to build in by early Sunday morning, bringing some clearing by daybreak. && .LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/... Ridging at 500 MB settles over the central and western CONUS next week, with a trend toward troughing over the NE CONUS, especially the early to middle part of next week. Latest models run are trending toward a somewhat more progressive patter, which will focus the unsettled period mainly Monday into tuesday, with some drying conditions mid to late week. Other than Monday, which looks a little cooler given deep southerly flow, temps should stay fairly close to normal through the period. On sunday, sfc ridge to our S shifts E, and this will allow for mainly dry day with lots of sun in the morning and increasing clouds in the afternoon. It will warm up briefly with highs in the mid 70s to low 80s. There is the chance of a shower or thunderstorm mid to late afternoon, mainly in the CT vly, as next system approaches. This system will be developing as fast moving 500 MB wave moves ESE out of Alberta, while closed low dives due south from Hudson Bay, with a weaker leading wave ahead of it. Initially the two weak waves phase on Monday, and SHRA develop overnight and spread east into Monday. It doesn`t look like a steady rain, although a short period of steadier rain is possible on Monday. Highs Monday will be in the mid 60s to low 70s, with mostly cloudy skies. There`s likely to be a break Mon night as the one system shifts east. But by Tuesday the closed low to our N will swing through Quebec just to out N, and bring its cold pool aloft aloft with it, so we are likely to see scatted showers and some thunder on Tuesday as the the atmosphere destabilizes. Highs Tuesday will be warmer, especially in the S, where more sun is likely, with highs mostly in the 70s, but upper 60s in the N. The closed low finally shifts NE on Wed, as sfc high starts nudging in from the W. There may still be a few showers in the N, still on the periphery of waves rotating around the closed low. With NW flow, downsloping will allow for highs on the coast and in the south in the low to mid 70s, and mid to upper 60s in the mtns. Thu looks dry and partly sunny with highs in the 70s. && .AVIATION /02Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/... Short Term... VFR conditions will lower to MVFR and IFR conditions across mostly southern and western terminals for a period of time late tonight through daybreak. Showers are likely to cause restrictions across southern and western New Hampshire as well. VFR conditions will return tomorrow morning and continue through tomorrow night. Long Term...Mainly VFR Sunday. Low clouds and showers will bring at least MVFR cigs late Sunday night into Mon evening. Expect VFR Tuesday, but SHRA/TSRA could bring tempo MVFR restrictions. && .MARINE... Short Term... A weak trough will cross the waters late tonight and tomorrow morning, bringing freshening wind gusts up to 20kts this evening. A weak ridge of high pressure will transit the waters tomorrow, with another weak trough approaching from the west tomorrow night. SCA conditions are not expected. Long Term...SW winds may approach SCA levels Mon and Monday night. && .GYX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... ME...None. NH...None. MARINE...None. && $$ NEAR TERM...Ekster/Tubbs

National Weather Service Jackson MS
1028 PM CDT Fri Jun 11 2021 .UPDATE... Updated for evening discussion. && .DISCUSSION... Most of the rain and storms have moved out of the region or dissipated. A few storms remain in northern Mississippi and these should continue to dissipate. Another complex of storms is located farther north upstream and this is progged to also diminish as it pushes south overnight. Much of the area should be rainfree overnight. The HRRR indicates some additional development closer to daybreak in the northeast and have left lower end POPs in this region to try to account for this potential. Otherwise, a warm and muggy night is in store for the region. Patchy fog may be possible as well in some locations that saw a bit of rainfall over the last few days. /28/ Prior discussion below: Tonight and Saturday...The vast majority of the cwa today remains precip free with the NE areas the location of precip activity so far this afternoon. Due to the increasing deep layer dry air and low level capping over the western part of the cwa, current storm activity should continue to be focused over the NE areas through 7-9pm before dissipating. Remainder of the night looks to be quiet and precip free, just warm and humid. Lows tonight will be in the 70-75 degree range and continuing the above normal stretch. For Saturday, forecast focus will be on severe storm potential and increasing excessive heat. With our wet conditions, evapotranspiration will be high and we will also see low level moisture pooling ahead of the next disturbance. The result will be Highs peaking in the 89 to 93 range with the warmest readings in the west. Combine that with high dewpts, and the Heat Index will peak in the 100-105 range. Some locations over our W half that will be near 105, I added a Limited Heat Risk to draw attention. Shifting to the severe potential, there`s an ongoing MCS over the Midwest and the remnant MCV and short wave emanating from this will ride S down the periphery of the amplifying upper ridge and be a trigger for storms Saturday. Nearly all guidance has trended more supportive of storms and a potential evolving MCS for our region now. The underlying environment will see steepening lapse rates as cooler mid level temps move S along with increasing winds aloft associated with the disturbance. Low level moisture will increase as 850mb theta e axis gets better established. Instability will be quite solid with values between 3500-4500 j/kg. There also looks to be a cap in place early which will serve to limit convection initially, but actually allow for maximizing instability before storms develop or move into the instability axis. All the ingredients are pointing to conditions that support our typical June organized severe events. Storms and the associated outflows will move roughly N to S, with damaging winds the main threat. Some hail is possible as well. Right now, a Marginal risk in out for all of the area. However, if the HRRR and other hi-res CAMs continue to trend and look like the 18z HRRR, then we will need an upgrade to "Slight" risk or higher as severe storm coverage may be more expansive. /CME/ Saturday night-next Thursday... Saturday night-Wednesday: At the start of the period, a complex of storms is possible across areas in the E-SE at before midnight. There are some spatial & temporal differences in CAMS on how this MCS evolves. Kept rain/storm chances through around midnight Sunday & boosted to more likely chances of storms & left some slight chances in through daybreak. There will remain some severe threat as well, so kept mention in the HWO for the overnight period. The region will remain in this N/NE flow before another cold/drier front dives down by mid-week. Due to this, active period of convection looks possible through mid-week, but may dry out across areas to the N. PWs will remain generally above an inch & a half to an inch & three quarters. This will keep slight chances of rain & storms for areas along & S of I-20 through mid week. Surface high will be expansive across the Great Lakes down into our area w/ a stalled sfc boundary across the south. Anomalous thermal warmth in the low-mid 20s at 925mb will support warming highs. Highs will warm into the lower 90s & heat stress/humidity will increase into the upper 90s-low 100s. Some heat indices could get near 105 degrees in the Delta Sunday, but will hold off mention in the HWO. Will need to evaluate how the storm complex evolves & any impact on the overall low-level moisture. Diurnal microburst potential will remain possible through the early half of the week (i.e. Monday-Wednesday). Late week: Slightly drier air will move in aloft around Wednesday-Thursday, which could keep rain & storm chances a little further to the S during this period. However, there is some increased confidence of a potential issue in the tropics as we move into late week. With the region W periphery of the anomalous 596mb ridge axis over the Intermountain West & E Coast trough, this will keep the ArkLaMiss in the weakness between the two. Synoptics seem in somewhat agreement, so there remains potential at least for some tropical moisture to advect to the north by late week after the period. With some slightly cooler thermal profiles moving in by late week, heat will be slightly less oppressive, as highs will be into the upper 80s-low 90s. This will limit heat stress & any issues in the HWO. /DC/ && .AVIATION... 00Z TAF discussion: VFR conditions are ongoing across the region. KGTR may experience lowered ceiling or vis from storms in the area. These should move through and bring a return to VFR conditions by 01Z. VFR conditions should continue through most of the night.

National Weather Service Louisville KY
1050 PM EDT Fri Jun 11 2021 .Mesoscale Update... Issued at 1050 PM EDT Fri Jun 10 2021 Lingering convection continues to move southward through eastern Warren county and down into Allen county. Brief heavy rainfall, wind gusts to 40 MPH and frequent lightning will be the main threats with this activity. Elsewhere, convection has ended across the region and skies were generally mostly cloudy. We expect the clouds to slowly mix out and sink southward overnight. In the wake of the cloudiness, combination of low-level moisture and wet ground will likely lead to some fog development along with low cloudiness once again. Current thinking is that best fog potential will be in areas that saw appreciable rainfall this afternoon which includes much of central Kentucky. Will go with patchy to areas of fog overnight in the forecast update and continue to monitor trends overnight. Otherwise, some minor adjustments were made to the ongoing forecast. First, we`ll keep some lingering PoPs over southern KY for the next hour or so and then diminish PoPs significantly. Second, we`ll keep sky cover up a bit more and then clear it out a little later. Fog grids look good. Temperatures overnight will bottom out in the upper 60s to around 70 in most areas. Issued at 943 PM EDT Fri Jun 10 2021 Convection continues to diminish across south-central KY this hour. Strongest storms are across eastern Grayson county and will move south through Edmonson and western Hart county over the next hour. Storms are pulse type severe with damaging winds being the main threat. Based on earlier reports, it appears that we`re getting some wet microburst type damage with some of these storms. The Grayson county storms are along an instability axis where 1200-2000 J/kg of MLCAPE reside along with about 30 kts of effective shear. Despite loss of heating, these storms are propagating along various outflows which is producing enough forcing to lift parcels to the LFC where they continue on up due to ample buoyancy. I suspect convection will continue for at least the next 60-90 minutes with Edmonson, Hart, NE Warren, and western Barren counties taking the brunt of it. Wind gusts of 45-50 MPH, torrential rain, and intense CG lightning will be the main hazards with this activity. Issued at 818 PM EDT Fri Jun 10 2021 Convection continues to wind down across the region in most places. However, one particularly strong storm was moving southward through Hart county. The storm is feeding off some 1500-2000 J/kg of MLCAPE with about 30kts of effective shear. The storm has recently taken on somewhat of a supercellular type shape. However, effective SRH values are less than 100 m2/s2. Recent velocity data is showing about 45-50kts of wind with this storm. So a threat of 60 MPH winds looks like a good bet across the eastern half of Hart county over the next 30 minutes or so. This activity should weaken with time as the boundary layer starts to stabilize due the loss of heating. Elsewhere, band of moderate to occasionally heavy rainfall will move southward through Marion, Taylor, Casey, and Russell counties over the next hour. This activity continues to weaken, but some localized flooding of poor draining and low-lying areas is possible for the next hour or so. Issued at 618 PM EDT Fri Jun 10 2021 Strong thunderstorms will continue to move through portions of north- central and east-central KY this evening. Some of these storms may be briefly severe over the next hour. Surface mesoanalysis shows a moderately unstable atmosphere with MLCAPE values in the 1500-2000 J/kg range. Effective shear remains quite marginal with values of less than 30 knots. Best effective shear values reside west of the Natcher Parkway across western KY. Thunderstorms are developing along outflow boundaries and additional convection will likely be focused around these. Over the next hour, best convective development will be along and just east of I-65 with a southward moving outflow boundary pushing through the Louisville Metro area. Pulse type storms with the potential of 50-60 MPH wind gusts will be the primary hazard. Second area of convection will be focused over portions of Mercer, Garrard, Boyle, and perhaps northern Lincoln counties of east- central KY. Marginally severe wind gusts to 60 MPH and possibly pea- marble sized hail will be the primary hazards with this activity. Soils are also saturated in some areas which may result in some localized flooding, especially where storms train. Overall residence time of these storms is low given their propagation along aforementioned outflow boundaries. However, a few flash flood warnings may be required in areas that have seen repeated rainfall this week. && .Short Term...(This evening through Saturday) Issued at 237 PM EDT Fri Jun 11 2021 Expect another afternoon of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Surface analysis places center of low pressure over central Ohio with two notable troughs, one extending SW across central KY and another extending W across central Indiana. Current radar shows scattered convection firing up along and ahead of both of these features with much less coverage over southern Indiana south to the Parkways. Overall environment is moist and unstable with SBCAPE values exceeding 3000 J/kg and PWAT`s from 1.70 to 1.90 inches. But with shear values remaining low, the main threat continues to be heavy localized rainfall and potential for flooding. But it should be noted that hi-res models advertise less coverage today than yesterday as RAP soundings do show a subtle 7H warm nose. But with that said, overall environment continues to be conducive for convective development. Clearing overnight once again will lead to stratus and fog development, especially from the Bluegrass to the Lake Cumberland area. Fog should quickly dissipate after sunrise with stratus lingering for a few hours. Saturday morning min temps will range in the upper 60s to low 70s. GEFS Integrated Water Vapor Transport shows the atmospheric river weakening over the OH Valley, but still maintaining a presence over the region through Saturday night as PWATs drop to around 1.50 inches. This will allow for another afternoon of chance showers and thunderstorms, though the chance is slight. As the low moves farther east, ridging aloft builds in bringing drier air that should limit convection tomorrow afternoon. Best chances will be across southern Indiana and along the Ohio River. Highs for Saturday will push into the upper 80s to low 90s. And with dew points in the low 70s, real- feel temperatures will be in the mid to upper 90s. So stay hydrated and seek shade! .Long Term...(Saturday night through Friday) Issued at 152 PM EDT Fri Jun 11 2021 A ridge west/trof east upper height pattern will be the rule for the upcoming week. On Sunday a broad, weak surface trough will slide through the Ohio Valley from north to south. Mid-level lapse rates, 700mb winds, and 0-6km bulk shear will be weak along with some slight upper ridging. Nevertheless, there will be plenty of moisture and instability for even a subtle boundary to work with, so will keep scattered showers/storms in the forecast with a diurnal peak in the afternoon/early evening. Current timing indicates the best chances will be in southern and eastern sections of central Kentucky. Another weak boundary is expected to slip through the region Monday night, but with little fanfare with its passage taking place at a time of low instability and weakening wind energy aloft. Depending on timing, a stray shower or storm could develop in southern Indiana in the late afternoon or early evening, but with sounding progs showing dry air aloft and some capping, will keep the general forecast dry for now. The forecast for the rest of the work week will also be dry at this time, with better rain chances associated with the main storm track across Canada (north of a powerful upper ridge that will be roasting the American Southwest where exceptional drought is already well established), along the eastern seaboard closer to the axis of the eastern upper trough, and on the central Gulf Coast in a plume of moisture coming up from the Bay of Campeche and Gulf of Mexico. Temperatures will be fairly typical for this time of year, although on Wednesday areas east of Interstate 65 may not make it out of the 70s. && .Aviation...(00Z TAF Issuance) Issued at 745 PM EDT Fri Jun 11 2021 VCTS near HNB and LEX will be ending soon as peak heating is lost. Expect to see mostly clear to partly cloudy skies overnight, which could be enough clearing to support some MVFR and isolated IFR fog conditions before sunrise tomorrow. Guidance suggests the best chance to have lowest visibilities and ceilings will be over the Bluegrass region. Another round of late afternoon showers and thunderstorms are possible across the region, but will only mention here in the discussion at this time. && .LMK WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... IN...None.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Chicago/Romeoville, IL
927 PM CDT Fri Jun 11 2021 .UPDATE... 927 PM CDT Have lowered shower/thunderstorm potential across northern IL overnight, limiting to slight chances after midnight. Latest 00Z guidance has backed off substantially with convective coverage across southern WI/northern IL and even into Saturday morning. Earlier isolated-scattered convection which produced local damaging downburst winds west of the Chicago area has dissipated with the loss of diurnal heating/instability. Latest RAP analysis depicts a weakening mid-level vort shearing through the mid/upper level ridge axis, and dropping southward across west-central IL. Stronger large scale forcing exists north of the upper ridge across northern MN and northern WI, ahead of the strong negative-tilt wave lifting northeast toward the International border. Our forecast area will be along the far southern periphery of mid-level height falls associated with this feature later tonight, with the primary low level feature being a somewhat diffuse surface cold frontal trough which will slowly approach from the west toward Saturday morning. Convection which initiated over western WI around 23Z struggled to develop this evening beneath the upper ridge, and as largely dissipated as of 02Z. Earlier CAM guidance had maintained and expanded this area of convection and spread it into far northern IL late this evening/overnight, though current trends argue against that scenario and new 00Z CAM guidance is largely dry for the area overnight. Not out of the question that something could fester across southern WI over the next several hours and eventually affect far northern IL later tonight, though that potential appears significantly lower than it appeared earlier (and even then it was rather low confidence). Thus have not removed pops overnight, but have pushed back in time to after midnight and limited any mention to slight (20%) overnight. Even Saturday morning could be rather quiet until the approaching cold front and increasing diurnal instability allow for better potential midday/afternoon. Have added a mention of some patchy fog after midnight west of Chicago where heavier rains occurred this afternoon. Current obs depict surface dew points in the lower 70s, with air temps just a little warmer at this time and calm/light winds. Areas from south of Rockford, through DeKalb and Morris would be most likely to develop fog overnight. Digital and text forecast products already updated and available. Ratzer && .SHORT TERM... 335 PM CDT Through Saturday night... Scattered thunderstorms tonight and Saturday were the emphasis of today`s forecast. A few gusty storms are probable, such as have been already seen this afternoon. Pulse convection with a higher coverage than in recent days is found in the area this mid-afternoon. Since 2:30 p.m. there has begun a slight waning in coverage of the convective corridor that was centered roughly along the Fox River Valley/Illinois Highway 47. This convective overturning should prevent any rapid growth in the next couple hours, though on its fringes there will probably continue percolating showers and some storms. There have been occasional gusty downdrafts this afternoon -- as high as 43 mph at ARR -- and this behavior is possible with any storms on the periphery of the outflow. Even an isolated severe threat may materialize such as the warned storm in eastern Ogle County/western DeKalb County. Upstream in western/central Wisconsin southward to the Mississippi River are more numerous convective cells tied to an elongated mid-level wave and associated speed max, as well as probably one or two convectively-enhanced vorticity maxima. There also are some outflow remnants from this mornings Plains/Missouri River Valley MCS that is inching eastward from eastern Iowa. These sub- synoptic scale features will be evolving eastward, though confidence in how aggressively they keep convection going after dark is low. The air mass over the CWA is somewhat worked over but that should recover with still several hours of sun, plus there remains a decent regional MUCAPE reservoir of over 2,000 J/kg. So would expect scattered convection into north central Illinois this evening, possibly without any real break from the current afternoon activity. There may be some loosely organized activity, or at least outflow-driven later this evening into overnight, with 20-30 kt of deep layer shear and some of the convection allowing models (CAMs) mode. The main short wave riding atop the northeastern side of the upper ridge will glide southeast over Lake Michigan by Saturday morning, with the surface cold front lagging this some and predicted to move slowly through the area in the afternoon. With the forcing not juxtaposed, it presents uncertainty on coverage and also yields thunderstorm chances throughout the entire day. Even if there is not much morning activity, there could be a fair amount of cloud cover that could limit the magnitude of instability and some of the afternoon redevelopment. It points toward still chance PoPs, but with enough shear (0-6 km of 25-30 kt) and thermodynamics (mlCAPE of 1,500 J/kg) there could again be storm behavior similar to today with a widely isolated wind and hail threat. As the front clears the southern CWA early to mid evening, the rain chance will end. Highs on Saturday will be influenced by any convection. The parameters aloft support low to mid 90s, but with scattered convective activity anticipated, have gone more around 90. Winds should turn onshore if they aren`t already by morning near the lake, keeping downtown Chicago cooler once again. MTF && .LONG TERM... 257 PM CDT Sunday through Friday... No significant changes made to the extended forecast today. Previous discussion follows... Heading into Saturday evening any lingering afternoon convection that develops along the surface cold front will have moved off to the southeast of the forecast area. Model guidance does develop spotty showers/thunderstorms along a surface convergent axis/lake breeze boundary into the evening hours. Model soundings indicate there is some residual moisture behind the boundary that would support at least slight chances along the IL/IN border. The upper ridge begins to amplify across the Central Plains by Sunday with the eastern Canadian trough responding by dipping south into the northeastern CONUS. This will place the Great Lakes region under northwest flow featuring mostly dry conditions and a trend toward cooler and less humid weather through midweek. Sunday and Monday will both be warm with highs in the upper 80s for inland areas (70s to low 80s near the lake shore). Despite the heat, dew points will be notably lower which should make for two pleasant summer days. A shortwave dipping across the upper Great Lakes will bring precip chances across Wisconsin into Michigan. For Tuesday, northerly winds will become gusty out of the north in response to a tightening pressure gradient keeping temperatures cool near the lake in the 70s and lower 80s inland. This could also result in hazardous swimming conditions along the southern Lake Michigan shore. The low and mid-level moisture still appears too low to warrant any precip chances during the Sun-Tue period, however with multiple subtle shortwaves moving along the northwest flow aloft a few very spotty diurnal showers/thunderstorms are not out of the question. Toward the latter half of the work week the upper ridge axis begins to shift eastward over the region with the surface high shifting to the southeast. This will bring a return of southerly flow and and temperatures warming back to near 90. Petr && .AVIATION... For the 00Z TAFs... 633 PM...Forecast concerns include... Chance of thunderstorms tonight and again Saturday afternoon. Wind directions through the period. A large outflow boundary has moved east of ord and will move through mdw shortly, shifting winds westerly. It has slowed its easterly movement and any gusts with this boundary will be short lived. The boundary may reach gyy before dissipating. Additional boundaries are possible across northeast IL this evening from thunderstorms across southeast WI. This activity is not expected to reach the Chicago terminals this evening but will need to monitor for boundary movements. Focus shifts back to thunderstorms developing across west central WI. This activity is expected to move southeast this evening and move into northern IL during the early morning hours. While confidence is only medium, have included tempo mention for this possibility and may need to adjust timing as trends emerge. Additional thunderstorms are possible Saturday afternoon but may develop south of the terminals. Opted to maintain previous prob mention due to uncertainty for where new activity will develop. Westerly winds 10kt or less are likely to become light and variable this evening and may remain light and variable for much of the night. The expected thunderstorms early Saturday morning may have a north/northwest wind shift with them, with the potential for some gusts. Winds behind this activity may favor easterly but confidence is low. Winds will eventually settle on a north/northeast wind to 10kts Saturday afternoon. cms && .LOT WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...

947 PM EDT Fri Jun 11 2021 .UPDATE... EVENING UPDATE. && .DISCUSSION... Most areas dry at the current hour but a few isolated showers and storms remain. HRRR shows additional isolated activity across our area over the next few hours but then further decreasing around midnight and thereafter. Adjusted previous POPs downward based off latest HRRR runs. With only isolated activity expected over the next few hours, feel comfortable going ahead and dropping the Flash Flood Watch. Will officially send out the cancellation product by 10 PM EDT.

A mix of VFR and MVFR conditions can be expected at all sites over the next several hours as scattered showers and storms continue across the area this evening.

SR && .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 738 PM EDT Fri Jun 11 2021/ SHORT TERM...(Today through Saturday)... Key Messages: 1. Moderate to heavy rainfall today which could lead to isolated flash flooding. Flash Flood Watch in effect for some areas through midnight. 2. Warmer on Saturday with lower chances for showers and thunderstorms. Discussion: Upper trough continues to slowly pivot atop the TN Valley and Southern Appalachians this afternoon favoring synoptic ascent over the area. At the surface, weak low pressure remains centered northward atop portions of the Upper OH Valley, yet extending southward into/through East TN. Given broad ascent and increasing instability this afternoon, still expecting coverage of showers/thunderstorms to increase regionwide either by way of new CI, or advection of convection to the southeast from portion of central/east KY and Middle TN. Thus, pops will gradually increase through the afternoon from northwest to southeast through the Plateau, the Great Valley, and finally the mountains. Rainfall over the last 48 hours has resulted in expansion of favorable flooding antecedent conditions, thus opted to expand (by area) the previous Flash Flood Watch one tier of counties southward, with no changes to the previous expiration time at midnight tonight. Overall storm total QPF is in the half inch range, however given pwats around 2" and only 10-15kt cloud layer mean winds, would expect some higher localized totals of 1-2 inches which could result in the aforementioned Flash Flooding. Tonight the upper trough axis looks to advect eastward, however with the region still beneath the broader trough. This will favor at least some lower end chances for convection on Saturday amidst ample heating in the afternoon, but overall the profiles are significantly drier thus the heavy rain threat does lower. All in all, will mention chance/likely pops further east across the mountains closer to the upper low and trough axis, while featuring slight chances westward to account for any diurnally favored convection. As noted, profiles do dry out by Saturday afternoon thus ample insolation and therefore heating is expected with highs pushing close to 90 in the Southern Valley, mid 80s northward. Lastly, these drier profiles suggest improved lapse rates for deep convection, therefore can`t rule out a few isolated stronger storms with gusty winds and small hail in additional to frequent cloud to ground lightning. CDG LONG TERM...(Saturday Night through Friday)... Key Messages: 1. Frontal passage on Sunday supporting isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms. A few of these storms may become strong. 2. Temperatures will continue to be warm through midweek to well above normal. Cooler and drier conditions will be found behind the late week front. Discussion: Not much has changed in the extended period. Upper lvl ridging will be centered over the central CONUS while troughing slowly moves across the Carolina coast. An approaching frontal boundary will support at least slight chances of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon hours and into the evening. PW values will be somewhat lower which may lower the flash flood risk a bit, although flash flooding will still be possible. With MLCAPE of around 2000 J/Kg and DCAPE in excess of 1200 J/Kg, a conditional severe risk will exist with convection that does develop. The main risk will be damaging winds. Behind the front, drier air moves in and continues through early next week. Temperatures will continue to be warm, with highs near to above normal. By midweek, a mid-level shortwave dives out of the Great Lakes resulting in amplification in mid-upper level flow. This results in a sharper frontal passage supporting cooler temperatures and lower dewpoints. Diegan && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...

604 PM CDT Fri Jun 11 2021 ...New AVIATION... .SHORT TERM... (This evening through Saturday) Issued at 242 PM CDT Fri Jun 11 2021 Looks to be another warm night tonight with lows in the low 70s. Dew points in the mid to upper 60s should prevent them from dropping any further. The upper level ridge continues to dominate the West Central Texas weather pattern keeping us nice and dry. The core of the ridge is expected to start drifting back west on Saturday into far West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. The 850 mb thermal ridge is following suite moving back to the west as well. Both of these will at least start the cooling process but effects of this won`t be felt too much during the day Saturday with highs still in the upper 90s to low 100s in places. Both the NAM and the HRRR show some relief in dew points during the afternoon for mainly the western half of the area where dew point values could drop into the upper 50s to low 60s. This should help with the heat indices in the places where temperatures are expected to be the hottest. Heat indices are largely expected to stay below criteria so did not continue the Heat Advisory into tomorrow but it will need to be monitored. Low level flow will continue from the south so the high humidity relief is not expected to last long. && .LONG TERM... (Saturday night through next Friday) Issued at 242 PM CDT Fri Jun 11 2021 The upper high will continue to be our primary weather influence extending into next week. The high will shift from southern New Mexico to over the Four Corners area by early next week. For our area, highs will be in the mid 90s to around 100 degrees on Sunday. May have the trailing portion of a weak cold front sag south into our far northern counties Sunday evening into Monday morning, before washing out. Not carrying mentionable PoP at this time, but if moisture is sufficient, may need to monitor for the potential of an isolated shower/thunderstorm with the weak boundary. With east-southeast low-level flow indicated Monday and Tuesday, should have some weakening of the 850mb thermal ridge, with highs dropping back a little to 92- 97 degrees across the area. Late in the week, the upper high is progged to be centered over Arizona/New Mexico with our area on its eastern periphery. Little change in our temperatures is expected with daily highs in the 90s. Will be monitoring for the potential of an embedded disturbance or two to move around the eastern periphery of the high and over our area. This would potentially bring a possibility of isolated showers and thunderstorms, but confidence is too low for including any mentionable PoPs at this time. && .AVIATION...
