... High pressure builds into the region from the Ohio Valley tonight, then resides overhead into early Wednesday. A cold front moves into the Ohio Valley Wednesday night while the high shifts offshore. This cold front will move over the region Thursday, bringing light rain to the area.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/... As of 230 PM EDT Monday...
High pressure over the Ohio Valley will drift southeast over the region tonight. This system will keep the region cool and dry into the day Tuesday. Lows tonight will drop into the 20s with winds becoming light. Daytime temperatures will run around 5F cooler than normal Tuesday, ranging from the mid to upper 40s west of the Blue Ridge and lower to mid 50s east. Dew points will also run low producing relative humidities in the lower 20s.
SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/... As of 300 PM EDT Monday...
A broad trough anchored across southeast Canada and into the Great Lakes and New England will be the dominant synoptic feature for mid-week. A short wave embedded within the trough is forecast to cross the area Thursday, spinning up an area of low pressure just off the Mid-Atlantic Coast. This trough is positively tilted, so the flow is progged to remain progressive with little meaningful precipitation, although would suspect at least a 24 hour period of varied amounts of cloudiness beginning as early as Wednesday with some increasing cirrus, followed by low/mid clouds Wednesday night and Thursday. Attm model consensus is for QPF of a trace to no more than a few hundredths of an inch...pops currently advertised under 50 percent.
Temperatures are expected to be close to normal with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s. This may support a brief mix to the precip across the High Country of NC and Highlands of VA/NC, but this appears relatively negligible per the lack of meaningful QPF.
LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... As of 300 PM EDT Monday...
Friday into Saturday is looking cool, dry and breezy. Thursday's coastal cyclone development is expected to deepen as the storm gains latitude off the New England Coast. What appears to be a clipper sort of short wave trough is forecast to round the base of the parent trough on Friday, becoming negatively tilted as it interacts with the coastal cyclone. This suggests there will be a healthy pressure rise behind this feature Friday, resulting breezy conditions, associated with a period of cold air advection Friday night into early Saturday. Once the pressure gradient relaxes, the winds should diminish for Saturday night into Sunday, dry weather persisting through the weekend.
Next threat for meaningful rainfall will be introduced early next week. Flow pattern next week features developing split flow with the southern stream becoming active again. This will open up the Gulf of Mexico for moisture to migrate north during the Sunday-Tuesday time frame.
Temperatures are forecast to reflect the seasonal norm...trending 5 to 10 degrees above the norm once the southerly flow becomes established.
