Warm and dry weather will continue this weekend, before a cold front ushers in a few thunderstorms early Monday. && .NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/... 215 AM update... Warm high pressure ridging into the Ohio Valley will expand toward the Great Lakes today. The 21c 925 mb isotherm will extend to the NY/PA border as daytime highs climb into the lower and middle 80s across our forecast area. && .SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/... 220 AM update... The axis of the high pressure ridge will shift over NY and PA on Sunday. As a result, 925 mb temperatures will climb to around 23-24c, setting the stage for a very warm afternoon. Temperatures are forecast to climb into the upper 80s, with a few 90 degree readings possible. A slow moving cold front will approach early Monday. The front lacks ample moisture, and the mid levels remain pretty warm on the model soundings. Scattered thunderstorms are expected as the front approaches, but the lack of instability points to a negligible severe threat. && .LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/... 310 AM Update...Current forecast in good shape with just minor adjustments made. Cold front will move through the region Tuesday into Tuesday night, with latest models indicating boundary will be more progressive.
