.DISCUSSION...
A large scale upper low over the Ohio Valley will be the primary
influence for the Nation`s weather as it meanders around that region
over the course of the next several days. An amplified pattern has
developed upstream of the upper low, creating a high pressure dome
across the Central and Southern Plains. Subsidence from the ridge
will continue to affect the forecast area through the end of the
week, meaning sunny and dry days and cool clear nights across the
area. We are actually experiencing a very brief warm up this
afternoon in advance of a reinforcing cold front. This warm up
will be short lived, as the front will push through overnight,
bringing a return to the cooler and drier air. So, for the rest of
the week, we should see lows in the 50s and 60s and high
temperatures mainly in the 70s.

The pattern will begin to change late in the weekend as the Great
Lakes Low lifts northward through Ontario/Quebec. This will open
up the rest of the CONUS for the arrival of another upper level
storm system. This next system will bring a chance of showers and
storms to most of the area during the middle and latter part of
next week.
