.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure will result in dry weather and a warming trend
into the weekend.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
Forecast remains on track for the most part... only updated dew
points with most recent guidance. High pressure will dominate
with little moisture to speak of.

&&

.SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/...
High and dry to start the period with a weak front sagging into
the area from the northwest. Winds will turn slightly more southerly during
the afternoon as a result. Modest mid- level moisture will
generate scattered cloud cover near the front during the day,
though generally below 35 percent.

&&

.LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
Eastern CONUS ridge will persist through the weekend. This
leads to a continuation of the dry and warm pattern. The next
chance of rain arrives Sunday night/Monday with a cold front. A
troughing pattern may then set up by Tuesday with continued
shower chances and temperatures near normal.

&&

.AVIATION /16Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
VFR and light winds are expected through the TAF period under
high pressure. Greater southerly component to wind during
the day Thursday.


.Outlook...
No widespread restrictions expected under high pressure.

&&

.PBZ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
MD...None.
