.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 212 AM EST Mon Nov 20 2017

Surface analysis has high pressure centered over the TN and lower
OH valley and will provide a quiet weather pattern in the short
term. Pattern aloft flattening to more zonal flow as more Pacific
energy streams onshore in western US. This will have surface ridge
axis shifting quickly eastward today to the Virginias and
Carolinas by this afternoon. Breezy SW flow on backside of high
will have area in low level WAA and send temps back into the mid
40s. Fair and seasonable tonight with lows in the mid 30s.


.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 212 AM EST Mon Nov 20 2017

Progressive low amplitude pattern aloft will have an active
northern stream across southern Canada through the long term
period. Each system will drag a cold front across the lower 48
that will be lacking in both mass convergence along the front and
moisture return from the gulf. Result will be low chance POPs
ahead of the front and weak lake effect setup in its wake.
Temperatures through the period will see warm-ups into the 40s
ahead of each system then cooling back into the 30s behind them.
