Long Term Update

LONG TERM [Thursday through next Monday]...
The shortwave and surface cold front will be exiting to our east
Wednesday night with deep layer ridging and a very dry airmass
filtering into the region Thursday. The mid/upper level ridge
flattens Friday with zonal flow over the weekend. Meanwhile the
surface ridge centered over the mid-Atlantic states Friday pulls
away into the western Atlantic as the next low pressure system moves
out of the Central Plains and into the Ohio Valley on Saturday. This
low is forecast to move off the New England coast early Sunday with
the southwest extending cold front sweeping across the local area
late Saturday through Sunday. Low level moisture quickly returns to
the region Friday into Saturday as winds gradually veer from east to
south. A deeper return of moisture can be seen on forecast soundings
and time height cross sections late Saturday into Sunday bringing
chances of rain back to the CWA. The front may stall over or just
south of the Florida panhandle late Sunday before a wave develops on
the boundary Monday nudging the boundary south and east of our Fa by
late Monday. Temperatures will be near seasonal levels Thursday with
above seasonal temps Friday through the remainder of the period.
