358 AM EDT MON APR 21 2014

MID TO HIGH CLOUDS...ASSOCIATED WITH A WARM FRONT...MOVED IN
OVERNIGHT ACROSS ALL BUT SOUTHERN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND SOUTHWEST
MAINE.  THIS KEPT TEMPERATURES FROM FALLING AS LOW AS THEY HAVE BEEN
IN RECENT NIGHTS...WITH PRE-DAWN TEMPERATURES GENERALLY IN THE
30S.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL SHIFT OFFSHORE TODAY...AND WINDS WILL PICK UP OUT
OF THE SOUTHWEST. THE CLOUDS WILL BREAK UP SOME SOME IN THE
NORTH...AND SKIES WILL REMAIN MAINLY SUNNY IN THE SOUTH.  HIGHS WILL
RISE INTO THE MID-UPPER 60S INLAND...BUT WILL BE ABOUT 10 DEGREES
COOLER ON THE COAST. VERY DRY AIR WILL REMAIN IN THE AREA
TODAY...AND COMBINED WITH THE INCREASED SOUTHWEST WIND...WILL LEAD
TO AN ELEVATED RISK FOR THE SPREAD OF ANY WILDLAND FIRES.

TONIGHT WILL START OFF FAIR...BUT CLOUDS WILL BEGIN TO OVERSPREAD
THE REGION FROM THE WEST AS LOW PRESSURE APPROACHES.  LOOK FOR
MILDER LOWS AROUND 40 OVERNIGHT. THAT LOW WILL MOVE INTO THE AREA
TUESDAY AND DRAG A COLD FRONT THE AREA TUESDAY NIGHT...WHICH WILL
BRING A CHANCE OF SHOWERS TO THE AREA LATE TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY
MORNING.

DRY AND SLIGHTLY COOLER...BUT SEASONAL...TEMPERATURES AND BREEZY
CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED FOR THE END OF THE WEEK.
