.SHORT TERM /Tonight through Wednesday Night/...

No significant weather concerns this short term period.
Dry high pressure drifts across the area tonight and Wednesday.
Main thing of note will be high clouds will be on the increase
later tonight through the short term in the faster upper level
flow.

Forecast low temperatures are running near to as much as 5-10
degrees below normal across the area tonight and around to as much
as 4-8 degrees above normal Wednesday night. Forecast high
temperatures are running near to as much as 4-6 degrees below normal
for Wednesday.

Overall confidence is high.

.LONG TERM /Thursday through Tuesday/...
No changes made to the long term forecast. The next major trough
deepening into the southwest will begin to affect our area at the
very start of the extended forecast. The latest model runs have
been a bit slower on bringing moisture back and it looks as if any
rain may hold off until after sunrise Thursday. So...no mention
of winter precipitation for Wednesday night. Best rainfall chances
still on track for Thursday night into Friday night. Rain should
be diminishing Saturday as the closed upper low pulls northeast
into the southern Appalachians. A mention of thunderstorms still
looks okay for Friday ahead of the surface low. ECMWF still slower
and farther south with the upper low for Sunday with the
possibility of a few lingering showers. However for now have
continued with the drier solution with no mention of pops Sunday
through Monday.
