LONG TERM [Saturday Night through Wednesday]...
The global models are forecasting a broad, mean trough in the
500 mb height field over the eastern CONUS for much of the period,
with a ridge possibly developing over the Southeast U.S. on Wed.
Much of our local weather will be dominated by an area of high
pressure at the surface, and a continental airmass. We expect
generally fair weather and near-average high temperatures, and
slightly below-average lows.
