Long Term Forecast

.LONG TERM...FRI NIGHT THROUGH NEXT WED.
FORECAST TRENDS CONTINUE TO SHOW THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN MAINTAINING
A MEAN LONG WAVE TROUGH JUST OFF THE EAST COAST,...AND ANOTHER ONE
NEAR THE WEST COAST OF THE CONUS...WITH A MEAN RIDGE OVER THE
CENTRAL PART OF THE COUNTRY. A RATHER VIGOROUS SHORT WAVE IS
FORECAST TO DROP INTO THE MEAN TROUGH OFF THE EAST COAST AT THE END
OF THIS WEEK...SHARPENING THE PATTERN AND SHIFTING THE RIDGE
WESTWARD. THE SHORT WAVE WILL EXIT OVER THE WEEKEND...ALLOWING THE
UPPER RIDGE TO TEMPORARILY REBUILD A LITTLE FURTHER EASTWARD AGAIN.
THE AMPLIFIED PATTERN WILL SUPPORT A WEAKENING COLD FRONT PUSHING
INTO THE SOUTHEAST THIS WEEKEND. HOWEVER...EXPECT THE FRONT TO STALL
NORTH OF THE AREA AND SLOWLY WASH OUT. MEANWHILE...THE SURFACE RIDGE
AXIS WILL REMAIN TO THE SOUTH...PROVIDING A CONTINUING LOW LEVEL
FLOW OF MOISTURE NORTHWARD ACROSS THE AREA. TEMPERATURES WILL BE NOT
QUITE AS HOT NEXT WEEK...TRENDING DOWNWARD BUT STILL REMAINING A
LITTLE ABOVE CLIMO. POPS WILL TREND HIGHER FURTHER NORTH...DEPENDING
UPON WHERE THE FRONT STALLS. TO THE SOUTH OF THE FRONT...POPS WILL
BE NEAR CLIMO AND ENHANCED BY THE SEABREEZE.
