.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 943 PM EDT Sun Sep 24 2017/

UPDATE...

No thunderstorms for the local area today with precipitable water
dropping to 1.25 inches according to GOES data and confirmed by
evening sounding. Current forecast has this represented well and
no changes planned for the evening update.

Deese

SHORT TERM /Tonight through Monday Night/...

Quiet fcst period continues with dry and abnormally warm airmass due
to amplified ridging and likely even some aided subsidence from
Hurricane Maria off the southeast coast. Could see some patchy early
morning fog again given the radiational cooling overnight, otherwise
should be mostly clear with some scattered cirrus skirting the upper
levels. Highs looks similar for tomorrow afternoon as to today,
which should persist near 5 degrees above climo (mid to upper 80s
for most locations).

Baker

LONG TERM /Tuesday through Sunday/...

Extended forecast largely on track with dry conditions through much
of the week with only low PoPs and a return to near normal
temperatures Friday and Saturday as pronounced ridge of high pressure
begins to break down. Have made minor adjustments to temperatures
and dewpoints beyond day 5 to account for latest model
trends. Previous forecast discussion follows...
