NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/. As of 245 AM Thursday . Broad cyclonic flow continues over the eastern CONUS today with an upper low centered over the Canadian maritimes. Deep WNW downslope flow will bring mainly sunny skies and warm temps ahead of a dry backdoor cold front that will push through the area this afternoon. Low level thicknesses support highs in the mid 60s though some MOS guidance is forecasting upper 60s to around 70, especially SW sections. NE sections expected to be a bit cooler with the front having the most impact here initially. The OBX expected to see highs in the mid 50s with upper 50s/lower 60s across the Pamlico/Albemarle peninsula.
