249 AM EDT Thu Aug 24 2017

.Short Term...(Today through Friday)
Issued at 230 AM EDT Thu Aug 24 2017

An upper level trough will remain in place over the region through
tomorrow. Surface high pressure will continue to build in from the
north, though the high pressure will be centered over the Great
Lakes region. Dry and pleasant weather will continue with below
normal temperatures for this time of year. Highs today and tomorrow
will top out in the mid 70s to around 80 with lows tonight dipping
into the lower to mid 50s.


.Long Term...(Friday night through Wednesday)
Issued at 247 PM EDT Thu Aug 24 2017

The dry weather should continue through the weekend as the pattern
will remain much the same as for the end of the work week. For
Sunday the surface high pressure will be shifting off to the east.
This will result in slightly warmer temps for Sunday. However, they
still look to be some 5 degrees below normal. Sunday and Sunday
night now look to be dry along with the rest of the weekend.

A strong wave will start to dive southeast of Canada Sunday night
into early next week. As it does so, there will be a chance for
scattered showers and storms. As this feature moves out there now
looks to be a relative lull in rain chances for Wednesday.

Looking ahead towards the end of the work week, the big question
will be what happens with TS Harvey. The latest model solutions have
come into better agreement with lingering Harvey over southeast
Texas through Tuesday before finally starting to eject it northeast
Tuesday night/Wednesday. They then have the remnants moving into the
lower Ohio Valley towards the end of the work week. Solutions will
certainly vary over the next week, but this system could bring the
area some decent rains.

Temperatures will remain below normal through the long term period
with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s and lows in the lower to
mid 60s.

with a light northeast wind at the terminals.
