Mostly Pleasant

Some early fog is possible this morning followed by partly sunny skies. Isolated thundershowers develop this afternoon. Temperatures are slightly above average for late June, but within comfortable ranges. An approaching front from the northwest produces showers and thunderstorms Monday, especially in the afternoon and overnight. Showers and thundershowers may linger into Tuesday. Then we have three days of reduced to no shower coverage (Wednesday through Friday).

Forecast Discussion

A front is located far to our south in Georgia. High pressure is centered near New York City extending into the Southern Appalachians. A light SE flow is producing patchy fog this morning. Any fog will lift this morning leaving us with partly sunny skies. Isolated coverage of afternoon showers or thundershowers is possible.

The next front from the northwest gets to the Ohio River Valley, close enough to spark enhanced coverage of showers and storms especially in the afternoon and Monday night.

The front will edge slowly east, crossing the Appalachians late Tuesday. Showers and thundershowers may linger into the daytime Tuesday.

Exact placement of that front Wednesday through Friday is problematic; however, I'm favoring a more southerly/easterly location Wednesday through Friday. As a result, we'll have less afternoon thundershower coverage during this period. I called left Wednesday and Thursday dry, then show "isolated" for Friday. Those details have some uncertainty associated, but overall "reduced" compared to Monday/Tuesday is a safe bet.

It appears that the next front from the west along with a return flow from the south increases thunderstorm coverage to scattered Saturday.
