000 FXUS61 KPBZ 231631 AFDPBZ Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA 1231 PM EDT Sat Sep 23 2017 .SYNOPSIS... High pressure will maintain warm and dry weather into the middle of next week. && .NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/... Broad high pressure will keep the forecast dry and warm. Clear skies will carry into the overnight hours tonight. This will allow for a large diurnal temperature spread, but lows are still expected to remain higher than seasonal averages. && .SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/... The ridge over much of the eastern CONUS will only build further Sunday and Monday. Mostly clear skies and unseasonably warm temperatures will remain a daily occurrence. Highs will regularly push near the 90 degree mark across the lower terrain. && .LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/... Guidance still showing a pattern change eventually coming towards the latter half of the week. This should effectively end the recent warm streak we`ve been on, beginning Thursday. The dry cold front that ushers this change, however, looks to bring little in the way of precipitation. Dry conditions will likely carry through the 7 day period, and possibly beyond. && .AVIATION /18Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/... High pressure will maintain light wind and VFR. .Outlook... General restrictions are not expected until the approach of a cold front during the middle of next week. && .PBZ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... MD...None. OH...None. PA...None. WV...None. && $$
