A large ridge of high pressure extended into the region this
afternoon. Subsidence associated with this system will help skies
clear temporarily over the forecast area tonight. However, a layer
of middle clouds ahead of the next system is expected to spread
across the skies overnight. Low temperatures tonight may occur
before midnight at 25 or 26 degrees ahead of the advancing cloud
layer. Dry weather will persist Thursday as temperatures start to
rebound with highs near 40.


.LONG TERM...(Thursday Night through Wednesday)
Issued at 306 PM EST Wed Nov 22 2017

A generally mild and dry pattern is ahead after Thanksgiving
through the middle of next week. Only a few small chances for
rain are in the forecast including Friday night and then Tuesday
night into Wednesday as the 3 to 4 day cycle of cold front
passages continues. These chances of rain correspond to the timing
of the fronts. There is considerable uncertainty with the timing
of the front during the middle of next week; a slower solution
would support a mild Wednesday with highs in the 50s.
