.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 350 AM EDT Sun Sep 24 2017/

SHORT TERM /Today through Monday/...

No significant weather impacts expected during the short term
forecast period. 00Z model guidance in very good agreement showing
weak upper low caught inside long wave, high amplitude ridge to
continue drifting southwest away from the state taking any
convection with it. Could still see patchy light fog this morning as
well as Monday morning but will dissipate by 9a. Above normal temps
and below normal precip expected to continue for some time.

LONG TERM /Monday Night through Saturday/...

No significant changes made once again through the extended forecast
period as the medium range model trends remain fairly consistent with
recent runs. Still looking at dry and above seasonal normal
temperatures through the work week as the region remains under weak
upper ridging with persistent northeasterly low-level flow
maintaining a stable airmass over the forecast area. Will see milder
temperatures and at least a slight chance for precipitation returning
as we head into the weekend as the upper ridge breaks down. Still
not seeing any impressive upper dynamics or low-level support for
higher POPs.
