-- Changed Discussion --
Cold front over the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley states approaches this afternoon with gusty SW winds. Clouds are beginning to erode across the area due to daytime heating and increasing SW winds. Expect skies to become partly to mostly sunny over the next few hours. Temperatures will be well above normal in the 70s.

&& .SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/... Mild conditions will continue through at least the early portion of the evening in southwest flow. The front is expected to slowly move through overnight with an abrupt drop in temperatures from west to east in strong cold advection. Any precipitation will likely be light and post-frontal, with minimal accumulations. By morning, rain will taper off quickly, with gusty northwest flow and more seasonable temperatures expected for the remainder of the day. By comparison, temperatures Monday night will feel significantly cooler than we have experienced recently, though will be closer to climatological normals for the time of year. Should northwest flow slacken more than forecast, temperatures in more rural areas and in the Pine Barrens of Long Island could approach the freezing mark. && .LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... The pressure gradient relaxes into the mid week as high pressure builds across the area. Temperatures will be a few degrees below normal on Tuesday before slowly moderating through late week. Little sensible weather is expected, though a short wave and attendant cold front will pass to the north for Thursday. Given antecedent dry conditions and its passage more to the north, no precipitation or large temperature drops are expected with its passage. High pressure will rebuild for the remainder of the week with seasonable conditions continuing. && .AVIATION /18Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
