Weak upper ridging ahead of the next upper trof will cause
temperatures to rise above normal this weekend. Hot and muggy
conditions can be expected by Sunday with heat indices rising into
the 90s. There is a good chance for thunderstorms late in the
weekend as another upper level trof and associated cold front move
into the area. Otherwise, temperatures will drop below normal with
dry and less humid conditions early next week.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday Morning)
Issued at 1251 PM EDT Thu Jun 23 2016

MVFR ceilings 012-025 currently across the area expected to gradually
lift to a VFR deck 035-040 later this afternoon as boundary layer heats
up. VFR ceilings still rather extensive upstream, so it will probably
be into the evening hours before the ceilings scatter out.

6 kts or less after dark.
