SHORT TERM. (Today through Thursday) Issued at 310 AM EST WED MAR 3 2021
High pressure will remain the main focus of the short term with a continued stretch of much needed dry weather. However, a back door cold front will usher in a slight cooler day for Thursday. This front will cross the area tonight, but very little if any moisture along the boundary will keep the area dry. In fact, very little cloud cover will be seen through the short term period. With the aid of the sunshine today and fairly low RH, we should see temperatures quickly bounce back after a cold start to the morning. Highs this afternoon, could reach 60 in a few places. Lows tonight will be chilly, but may see a bit more mixing overnight with the back door cold front, thus, only put a slight ridge valley split in for the more sheltered valley locations. By Thursday, some weak cool air advection behind the front will keep afternoon highs more in the upper 40s to lower 50s.
LONG TERM. (Thursday night through Tuesday) Issued at 417 AM EST WED MAR 3 2021
Quiet weather is expected to persist through the long term period. The models continue in unusually good agreement, even at longer range. Surface ridging under northwest flow aloft will bring fair weather with ample sunshine at least through Saturday. Based on the GFS, a few flurries can't be ruled out late Saturday night into Sunday, mainly in our eastern counties, due to a shortwave trough rotating down the back side of a larger scale eastern CONUS trough. However, the ECMWF is drier with this feature, and the forecast has been kept dry at this point. After this, ridging aloft builds in from the west early in the new week, and surface high pressure shifts to our east. With low level flow turning out of the south, a warming trend will ensue. However, flow off the gulf will remain well to our west, so we will stay dry.
AVIATION. (For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Wednesday night) ISSUED AT 1254 AM EST WED MAR 3 2021
VFR conditions will continue through the period. Winds of 5-10 knots will be seen on Wednesday out of the southwest.
