New AVIATION

NEAR TERM
(Through Tuesday)
Issued at 219 PM EDT Mon Apr 22 2024

Beautiful weather is expected through the next day or so as high pressure settles over the region. A favorable setup for radiational cooling overnight with clear skies and calm winds will let low temperatures fall into the 40s across almost the entire area. Dry conditions are forecast to persist into tomorrow as well with highs climbing into the mid to upper 70s.

.SHORT & LONG TERM...

Upper-level ridging will build over the southeast US through the week with high pressure gradually sliding off to the east. A trough swings through the Great Lakes mid week, which will send a cold front close to our area, but it won't quite make it. Stronger ridging returns late in the week, which will allow temperatures to warm into the middle to upper 80s for highs and upper 50s to mid 60s for lows. The next system will organize over the Plains this weekend, which may lead to some breezy weather thanks to a tightening pressure gradient, but no rain is expected as it stays well to our west.



AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 106 AM EDT Tue Apr 23 2024

Easterly winds will become southerly by this evening with cigs remaining VFR through the TAF period.

MARINE
Issued at 219 PM EDT Mon Apr 22 2024

Generally light easterly winds are expected during the next several days with tranquil seas thanks to high pressure. Winds this weekend will clock around out of the south and increase as the pressure gradient tightens ahead of an approaching cold front.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 219 PM EDT Mon Apr 22 2024

Surface high pressure will settle into the region Tuesday, which will lead to very light transport winds around 5-10 mph. Mixing heights will similarly be allowed to build to 5500-6000 ft across the region Wednesday and Thursday with high pressure overhead. Overall, with weak transport winds, dispersions are not expected to be too high even through mixing heights will be high. Minimum RH values will drop into the low 30s to upper 20s across the area, but are expected to improve into the mid 30s to low 40s by Wednesday.
There are no fire weather concerns at this time.

HYDROLOGY
Issued at 219 PM EDT Mon Apr 22 2024
