. These conditions are expected to persist over the forecast area through much of the week as high pressure remains to our north. As the high moves offshore, moist southerly flow will return towards the end of the week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/... As of 245 AM EDT Sunday: Big change starts today in the wake of a cold front, which had worked its way south of the forecast area by AFD time. Longwave upper trough axis just to our west will continue to push east, with thicknesses decreasing as surface high pressure begins ridging in from the west. The trough will make little progress through the period, but the airmass change will be felt in the form of much lower dewpoints, especially tonight. High temps today will likely be similar to those yesterday (due to less cloud cover) except maybe in the mountains, though this is still a handful of degrees below seasonal normals. Overnight lows tonight will be a good 5 or so degrees below what we`ll see this morning, and ranging anywhere from 3-8 degrees below seasonal normal. Overall, a really pleasant day for late June.
SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/... As of 250 AM EDT Sunday: the short-term fcst picks up at 12z on Monday with longwave upper trofing centered over the Great Lakes and steep upper ridging in place over the Western CONUS. By early Tuesday, an upper shortwave will dig southward on the backside of the upper trof, providing increased upper-lvl divergence just ahead of it. The shortwave axis is expected to move overhead Tues afternoon and then offshore by early Wed with heights beginning to recover in its wake. At the sfc, a lingering frontal bndy will be located over the SC Coast early Monday and slowly drift offshore later in the day/evening. The rest of the period is marked by the Canadian High sliding SE and towards our area on Tuesday before ending up just to our north by the end of the period, 12z Wed. As for the sensible fcst, most of the period should be dry. I do have some slight chance PoPs on Tues as the upper shortwave approaches the area and produces favorable ascent especially over the higher terrain. Temps will be 1 to 2 categories below normal for late June.
LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... As of 235 AM EDT Sunday: the extended fcst picks up at 12z on Wednesday with an upper shortwave moving off the Atlantic Coast. As it does, heights begin to rebound over the fcst area as upper ridging starts to build to our south. Another longwave upper trof approaches the Great Lakes on Friday and then gradually slides to our north over the weekend acting to flatten the ridge to our south. At the sfc, broad high pressure will be centered just to our north by early Wednesday with below normal temps in place over the region. The high will slide off the Atlantic Coast on Thursday putting the CWFA back under warmer and more moist SLY low-level flow for the end of the work week. A cold front will approach the fcst area from the west on Saturday, but is not expected to move thru the CWFA until the end of the period on Sunday. As for the sensible wx, Wednesday should be dry with the high over us. Thurs and Fri will see a return to a more typical summertime pattern with slight to solid chances for TSRA each day. Chances for widespread TSRA increase on Sat as the front moves into the fcst area. Temps and dewpts will start out about a category below normal and steadily warm thru the period with values reaching normal by the end of the work week.
