DOWNPOURS TO INCREASE IN COVERAGE. LOCAL FLASH FLOODING POSSIBLE.

 

HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER SYNOPSIS... AFTER A LULL OVERNIGHT LAST NIGHT...SHOWERS BECOME MORE WIDESPREAD TODAY. AFTER A DRY DAY ON THURSDAY FOR EASTERN OHIO AND NORTHERN WEST VIRGINIA...THE SHOWERS ALSO MOVE BACK FURTHER NORTH...AS TODAY PROGRESSES. THIS INCREASE IN SHOWERS...IS IN RESPONSE TO A WEAK LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM THAT MOVES UP THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY TODAY...THROUGH OUR VICINITY TONIGHT...THEN MOVES TO OUR EAST DURING INDEPENDENCE DAY MORNING. IN THE MOIST AIR AND WEAK WIND FLOW...DOWNPOURS COULD REDEVELOP TODAY. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH IS POSTED FOR SEVERAL COUNTIES...FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF RAPID RISES ON SMALL STREAMS AND CREEKS. A WEAK HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER THE MIDWEST ON SATURDAY AND SHOULD BRING DRIER AIR INTO SOUTHEAST OHIO AND NORTHERN WEST VIRGINIA SATURDAY AFTERNOON OR SATURDAY EVENING. SO IMPROVING CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED THERE. FURTHER SOUTH AND EAST...MORE CLOUDS AND SHOWER CHANCES LINGER LONGER ON INDEPENDENCE DAY. ON SUNDAY INTO SUNDAY NIGHT...THE DEEPER MOISTURE MAY GET HUNG UP ALONG THE WEST VIRGINIA AND VIRGINIA BORDER COUNTIES...INCLUDING THE GREENBRIER VALLEY. A WEAK SOUTHEAST WIND COULD CAUSE SHOWERS OVER THESE MOUNTAIN COUNTIES AND EASTERN SLOPES ON SUNDAY. MEANWHILE...THE DRIER AIR TRIES TO HOLD ON SUNDAY...FOR COUNTIES FURTHER NORTH AND WEST.
