.DISCUSSION...
A cold front will push through this evening and settle southeast of
the area for Wednesday. Drier weather will develop as high pressure
builds southward from eastern Canada along the east coast in the
wake of the front. Moisture will gradually return on Thursday,
with abundant moisture in place by Friday as a strong low pressure
system moves east from the Mississippi River Valley. Drier weather
will return for the weekend, but unsettled weather could return
early next week.
