LONG TERM...Monday Night Through Friday
A large area of high pressure will be in place to begin the period,
and will cover much of the eastern half of the country. As the
period progresses, the high will slide to the east, and winds around
here will become more southerly. This will result in above average
temperatures. Moisture levels will also slowly increase.

By Wednesday or so, a ripple of energy will slide from the central
Plains toward the mid-Mississippi and Ohio Valleys. Any ridging in
place will be flattened a bit temporarily. This will allow a new
cold front to approach from the north. Data is indicating isolated
to scattered showers and thunderstorms along the front, with rain
most likely toward the Missouri border.

Ridging will quickly follow the front from the southern Plains, so
any drop in temperatures should be minor/short-lived.&&
