.UPDATE...
00Z sounding continued to show very dry conditions across the
region, with precipitable water values around 0.40 inches. High
clouds were increasing from the west this evening, due to
increasing upper level moisture from a digging upper trough/low
pushing across the desert southwest and northern Mexico. Surface
high pressure will settle across the Ohio Valley late tonight into
Saturday morning, and cool temperatures are forecast. Lows will
be in the upper 30s to lower 40s across much of the interior to
the upper 40s to lower 50s along the coast.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions with increasing high clouds overnight and through
the day on Saturday. Light winds overnight will become northeast
around 10 knots on Saturday.

&&

.MARINE...
North winds 10-15 knots becoming NE 15-20 knots on Sat as High
Pressure builds north of the region, with seas continuing in the
3-5 ft range. Winds then slowly veer to the E/SE on Sunday at 10-15
knots and south on Monday and slowly increase ahead of the next
approaching front. SCA flags will likely be needed on Tuesday,
with winds then shifting to the NW behind the frontal passage on
Wed. Model diffs in the long range shows uncertainty in how
strong the CAA will be late next week.

Rip Currents: Moderate risk of rip currents on Saturday.
