Area Forecast Discussion

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure will lead to above normal daytime
temperatures, relatively light east winds and very dry conditions
through much of next week.


.DISCUSSION...Very little variation expected for the next several
days. An upper level ridge has moved eastward and will maintain
position into next week. This has allowed for some warming and
caused the easterly gradients to relax, as upper level support for
those winds is now lacking. Current forecast looks good, many days
of above normal temperatures, cool nights and light winds are in
store. No updates needed.


.AVIATION...For the 18Z package...VFR conditions will persist for
the next 24 hours, with a few high clouds over the southern zones.
Light easterly winds 5-15kts. Aviation discussion not updated for
TAF amendments.


.FIRE WEATHER...Very dry conditions will persist today and Monday.
A weak upper low will pass south of the state on Monday, with an
increase in cloud cover south of I-40. East to northeast winds 10
mph or less for most areas.

Tuesday through Thursday...Above average daytime temperatures and
dry conditions will continue, as northeast flow aloft persists.
Generally light winds are expected.
