.SYNOPSIS...
VARIABLE AMOUNTS OF HIGH PRESSURE ARE EXPECTED INTO THE WEEKEND.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE LOCATED OVER THE NEW ENGLAND STATES TONIGHT.
SINCE THE WIND DIRECTION WILL BE LIGHT OUT OF THE SOUTH...DEWPOINTS
UP SLIGHTLY AND AFTERNOON HIGHS IN THE 70S THE REGION WILL BE
WARMER THAN LAST NIGHT. THIS SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO AVOID ANY FROST
WITH MOST LOCATIONS REMAINING IN THE 40S. NO CHANGES WITH THIS
EARLY EVENING UPDATE.

&&

.SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/...
WEAK LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE UP THE EAST COAST WEDNESDAY INTO
THURSDAY BUT SHOULD HAVE LITTLE IMPACT ON THE AREA. THE ONLY ISSUE
MAY BE TO CAUSE A FEW MORE CLOUDS ACROSS THE EASTERN COUNTY
WARNING AREA. THIS LOW WILL MOVE OUT INTO THE ATLANTIC ON FRIDAY
ALLOWING HIGH PRESSURE TO REESTABLISH ITSELF OVER THE GREAT LAKES

NEXT WEEK...WE WILL BE WATCHING MOISTURE TRY TO SNEAK UP THE
MISSISSIPPI VALLEY AROUND THE RIDGE. MEANWHILE A WEAK BACK DOOR COLD
FRONT WILL ATTEMPT TO DROP SOUTH ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN
GREAT LAKES. NOT CONFIDENT IN SEEING THIS MOISTURE MAKE IT INTO THE
