SYNOPSIS. A dry air mass will build into the region through the weekend into early next week. Temperatures will moderate through the period.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/. Deep upper low over the Great Lakes region lifting to the northeast. A pressure ridge (much drier air mass) centered over the Mississippi Valley is building east. With the ridge to the west and front/trough offshore, weak cold advection will continue overnight with north winds. Models suggest a low level jet at least 15 to 20 knots if not higher during the early morning hours, so not optimal radiational cooling despite clear skies so stayed near consistent temp guidance. Low temperatures will be below average once again in the low to mid 50s.

SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/. High confidence forecast for Fall weather over the forecast area during this period as high pressure continues to build over the Carolinas. Northwesterly flow aloft weakens on Friday with more westerly zonal flow at 500mb while surface high pressure centered over the Appalachians remains in place. Expect mostly clear skies to prevail Friday and Friday night with strong radiational cooling expected Friday night with the coolest temperatures of the early Fall season expected.

High temperatures on Friday should be similar to today generally in the mid to upper 70s. Strong radiational cooling combined with a cool and dry air mass is expected to support overnight lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s Saturday morning.

A digging upper level trough will move through the Ohio Valley on Saturday and then off the Mid-Atlantic coast which will push a weak front through the area Saturday night. Atmospheric moisture will remain quite low with PWATs less than an inch so expect the front to pass without precipitation. Temperatures will begin to moderate a bit with 700mb northwesterly downsloping flow and highs will be slightly warmer in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Dry and seasonable weather expected to continue early in the extended forecast period with generally zonal to slightly northwesterly flow aloft. Strong upper level troughing will move into the western CONUS by midweek which will amplify the 500mb flow downstream resulting in highly amplified flow with a strong ridge developing over the MS Valley into the western Great Lakes region and an upper trough over New England.

As for sensible weather, we are expecting a gradual warming trend through the week with high temperatures pushing back into the mid to upper 80s by mid week with increasing 500mb heights. Surface high pressure will prevail through much of the period providing dry weather and generally lower humidity. Overnight lows will continue to be near to slightly below normal.

AVIATION /00Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. VFR conditions expected throughout the TAF period.

Dry high pressure will remain in control. Winds become light and variable overnight, but there should be enough low-level mixing from a low-level jet of 20 knots to prevent fog. Light northerly winds expected on Friday.

EXTENDED AVIATION OUTLOOK . No significant impacts to aviation expected through Tuesday.

CAE WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. GA . None. SC . None.
