drier weather through midweek. Surface high pressure will push
off the coast Wednesday and Thursday, with warmer temperatures
for the latter half of the week.

&&

Weak sfc high pressure sliding acrs the area will provide a
partly to mostly sunny sky and comfortable conditions this

70s/around 80 at the beaches.

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
Broad trough aloft sharpens into the Great Lakes/OH Valley by
tonight...pushing a secondary cold front across the FA. Limited
moisture associated w/ this front...though can not rule out an
ISOLD SHRA...esp on the coastal plain. Lows in the m-u50s inland
to the l-m60s at the coast.

A relatively potent s/w aloft will track across the local area
Tue as the axis of the trough aloft swing to the E coastdrop
across the local area. Despite dry airmass...this system could
prove strong enough to squeeze out ISOLD/SCT SHRAs/tstms in the
afternoon...esp E of I 95. Will carry 20-30% PoPs. Highs in the
u70s- l80s.

Sfc high pressure finally builds into/over the region Tue
night-Wed providing dry weather and comfortable conditions
under a mainly clear sky. Lows in the l-m50s inland to the
u50s-l60s at the coast. Highs Wed 80-85F...m-u70s at the
beaches.

&&

.LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...
Long term period will feature generally dry wx with near to
slightly above normal temps through the period. Sfc high pres
slides offshore Wed night into Thu allowing for S/SW flow to
develop across the Mid Atlc and temps to max out in the mid-upr
80s Thu. Similar conditions into Fri with a mostly sunny sky and
high temps in the upr 80s to lwr 90s. Next chance of rain
arrives Sat/Sat night with an approaching cold front. With this
several days out will cap PoPs at 30% for now, but may raise
PoPs for this in future updates if the timing holds.

&&

.AVIATION /15Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
VFR conditions through the 12Z TAF forecast. ISOLD/SCT SHRAs
and high based CIGs possible Tue (afternoon) as a secondary cold
front crosses the local area. Otherwise...VFR conditions are
expected for much of the week as sfc hi pres builds over the
region.

&&

.MARINE...
Benign boating conditions expected the next few days. Winds
remain under 10 kt today with a weak trough of low pressure in
the vicinity. A weak cold front pushes offshore Mon night into
Tue morning, but with weak CAA expect N/NW winds behind the
front only up to 10-15 kt. Sfc high pres returns for Wednesday
leading to aftn sea breezes. Waves over the Bay only 1-2 ft with
seas over the coastal waters 2-3 ft thru Wed. High pressure
slides well off the coast Thursday/Friday with return flow
resulting in S-SW winds increasing to 10-20 kt. Waves 2-3 ft on
