Long Term Discussion

By: NWS

LONG TERM (MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY)...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE THE MAIN FEATURE FOR THE EXTENDED PERIOD. A SURFACE HIGH WILL BUILD IN OVER THE NORTHWEST ATLANTIC NOSING SOUTHWESTWARD INTO THE EASTERN GULF. THIS WILL KEEP US UNDER AN EASTERLY TO SOUTHEASTERLY FLOW REGIME FOR MUCH OF THE PERIOD WITH LOW LEVEL MOISTURE SURGING INLAND. POTENT MID LEVEL RIDGING WILL MOVE INTO THE GULF PLACING US BENEATH LARGE SCALE SUBSIDENCE THROUGH THE LONG TERM. AS SUCH...POPS WILL REMAIN IN THE SILENT 10 RANGE OR BELOW TO ACCOUNT FOR THE OUTSIDE CHANCE OF AN AFTERNOON SHOWER OR POSSIBLE SEABREEZE CONVECTION. WHILE SOME MID-LEVEL MOISTURE MAY ROUND THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE RIDGE...SUBSTANTIAL CLOUD COVER SHOULD REMAIN LIMITED TO NORTHERN PORTIONS OF OUR CWA WITH SCATTERED CLOUDINESS EACH AFTERNOON. THE ABSENCE OF CLOUDS IN THE PRESENCE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL ALLOW US TO SEE HIGHS IN THE 90S FOR A FEW DAYS TOWARD THE END OF THE PERIOD. LOWS WILL START OUT BELOW CLIMO IN THE MID 50S MONDAY MORNING. WINDS WILL QUICKLY SHIFT TO THE EAST HOWEVER...AND BY TUESDAY NIGHT...TEMPS WILL BOTTOM OUT IN THE MID 60S. WITH PREVAILING EASTERLY WINDS AT THE SURFACE...MARINE AREA WILL LIKELY EXPERIENCE NIGHTLY EASTERLY SURGES WITH INCREASED WINDS AND SEAS EACH NIGHT THROUGH THE END OF NEXT WEEK. OVERALL...EXPECT A SUMMER PATTERN TO MOVE IN BY TUESDAY WITH DOMINANT HIGH PRESSURE AND HIGHS REACHING THE 90S BY MID WEEK WITH PLENTY OF SUNSHINE.
