.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/...
Sfc high pressure under northerly flow aloft will maintain dry
weather and seasonable temperature today.

.SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
The high amplitude ridge over the central CONUS will build eastward
through Tuesday in response to wrn CONUS troughing and the advance of
