A very quiet period upcoming across the area devoid of any chances
for rain through at least late next week and into the weekend. A
broad surface ridge has moved into the area and will be the
dominating feature for the next several days, providing the area
with dry/cool air. With the lack of present moisture, there will be
very little chance for rain. Aside from the dry continental air mass
over the area, the mid level pattern will also be one that does not
afford much opportunity for rain. A fairly potent trough will cut
off from the northern stream jet and become stationary over the Ohio
River Valley. Its eastern periphery will remain over the area,
providing subsidence and northerly mid level flow. By mid to late
week with the quasi-stationary low to the east and general troughing
to the west an Omega blocking pattern will set up for the second
half of next week and into the weekend. This impasse in midlevel
features will likely persist through the weekend. By the first week
of October there is a chance for the blocking pattern to break down
and rain chances could reemerge after next weekend, but in the
meantime conditions will remain dry, with very comfortable 70 to 80
degree temperatures for the next 7 days.
