High pressure will keep the weather warm and dry into the weekend. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/... Another dry and warm day, with temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above normal. && .SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH SATURDAY/... Zonal flow will continue dry conditions and well above normal temperatures through Friday. Late Friday, and Friday night, a mid-level trough will swing through New England, and push a frontal boundary south across the Upper Ohio Valley. The Best upper level support will remain well north and east, and deep moisture appears to be lacking, so kept the forecast dry. Cooler air will slowly filter into the region Saturday with lowering dew points. The crossing boundary will increase cloud cover, late Friday and Friday night. Clouds will decrease from north to south Saturday morning, as the aforementioned front dives into the Mid-Atlantic region. && .LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/... Dry and seasonably cool under high pressure Sunday and Monday. Only minor changes in the forecast into the middle of next week as models show little agreement on next front. Used the superblend for the long term period. && .AVIATION /17Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
