.SYNOPSIS...
BROAD HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE NORTHEAST WILL KEEP CONDITIONS DRY
THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND INTO NEXT WEEK. A COLD FRONT WILL DROP
SOUTH ACROSS THE AREA MONDAY NIGHT. HIGH PRESSURE REASSERTS ITSELF
ON TUESDAY WITH WARM AND HUMID AIR MOVING BACK INTO THE AREA.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/...
.UPDATE...
JUST A QUICK ADJUSTMENT TO CLOUD COVER FOR MOUNT WASHINGTON.
RELATIVELY LOW DEW POINTS WILL ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO DROP OFF
QUICKLY TONIGHT WITH READINGS BOTTOMING OUT IN THE LOWER 50S WITH
A FEW UPPER 40S.

HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE AREA WILL ALLOW GOOD RADIATIONAL COOLING
CONDITIONS TO SET UP TONIGHT. AFTERNOON CUMULUS CLOUDS SHOULD
DISSIPATE AND GIVE WAY TO A CLEAR SKY. TEMPERATURES SHOULD FALL A
FEW DEGREES LOWER THAN THEY DID THIS MORNING... WITH MID 40S TO
MID 50S COMMON ACROSS THE AREA. EXPECT VALLEY FOG TO BE A LITTLE
MORE WIDESPREAD TONIGHT THAN LAST NIGHT.

.SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/...
HIGH PRESSURE SHIFTS SLIGHTLY TO THE EAST ON SATURDAY ALLOWING A
SOUTHERLY FLOW TO BEGIN TRANSPORTING WARM AND MOIST AIR BACK INTO
NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND. SHOULD SEE HIGH TEMPERATURES WARMING INTO
THE 80S WITH INCREASING HUMIDITY... ALTHOUGH IT WILL REMAIN DRY.
IT WILL NOT BE AS COOL SATURDAY NIGHT DUE TO HIGHER DEW POINTS.
