9/19 Short Range

The short range forecast is looking rather bland. There will be calm conditions expected according to the GFS for today through Friday morning with a ridge in place. Temps will build after the chilly morning we saw across the area today. Over night lows will be in the mid-40's with daytime highs near 70. Friday will bring about a change with clear start to the day; however, a trough will quickly dive down from Canada bringing with it a strong jet stream and a chance of showers; as seen in the image on the left displaying the 300mb heights and isotachs. The image on the right shows the 00 z 6 hour precipatation totals along with the location of the low pressure right over our area. Predicitions look to be about .25 of an inch to .5 inches of precip for Friday night into Saturday according to the GFS. The NAM indicated similar results out of this trough moving though having the bulk of the precip just a bit farther North than the GFS.
