...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.
