&& .SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM THURSDAY/... As high pressure moves in, a southwest flow will develop leading to a gradual warm up in temperatures beginning on Wednesday. Temperatures should warm to slightly above seasonable levels in the upper 60s to lower 70s with plenty of sun. && .LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/... Aloft, initial weak shortwave passes with no impact on our weather. Ridge builds late this week and through the weekend. Thereafter, differences in the global models arise with regard to timing and eventual strength of upstream trough as it moves toward the east coast Monday and Tuesday. At the surface, a weak cold front passes Thursday night into early Friday. Otherwise, high pressure builds late this week, and passes off the coast this weekend. A stronger cold front approaches from the west Monday and Tuesday. Again, due to differences in the models aloft, differences are noted on progression of the front, and any associated waves of low pressure that may ride along it. Higher confidence in an increase in clouds Monday and Tuesday, along with increasing rain chances, mainly beginning Monday night into Tuesday. In the Thursday through Sunday time frame, expect abundant sunshine along with daytime highs averaging around 5-10 degrees above normal. In fact, these above normal temperatures continue Monday and Tuesday as well in spite of the increase in clouds. && .AVIATION /06Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
