SYNOPSIS
High pressure will build over the Mid-Atlantic through the weekend, then move offshore next week. A warm front will lift through the region early in the week, ushering in a prolonged period of hot weather.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
Mostly sunny skies expected today as northerly breezes usher in dry and seasonable air. The wind should go light to calm tonight, allowing temperatures to fall into the 50s and 60s.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/
High pressure overhead Sunday will gradually shift offshore through Monday as heights build aloft and a warm front crosses from southwest to northeast. This warm front will usher in a prolonged period of hot weather for next week. Temperatures Sunday will be a few degrees warmer than Saturday with perhaps a touch more humidity and a pop up shower or two near the Appalachians during the afternoon.

Temperatures and humidity will continue to increase Sunday night into Monday. After a start in the 60s, temperatures will climb into the lower to middle 90s for most. When combined with the modest increase in humidity, heat index values of 95 to near 100 are possible. A pop up shower or thunderstorm can't be ruled out near the Appalachians during the afternoon, but most of the time will be dry.

Monday night will continue the warming trend with lows in the middle 60s to lower 70s expected.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
A highly anomalous (2-3 sigma) upper level ridge will build over the Eastern US next week, with 500 hPa heights reaching just shy of 600 decameters. Meanwhile, high pressure will remain in place at the surface just offshore. This will maintain light south to southeasterly flow over the course of the week. Such a combination will lead to a prolonged stretch of hot conditions.
Temperatures should reach into the mid 90s each day, with upper 90s possible by the end of the week. Overnight lows will generally be in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Dewpoints will be seasonable (in the mid 60s), which will make it feel a bit humid as well. A prolonged period of dry conditions is expected for most, although a stray popup afternoon thunderstorm can't be ruled out over the higher terrain.

AVIATION /14Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
VFR conditions are anticipated through Monday night. N/NW winds around 8-12 kts with gusts of 17-20 kts through about 16-18Z, then decreasing gradually through the remainder of the day.
Light NE flow is expected tonight, with E to SE flow Sunday through Monday night. A few gusts to around 15 kts are possible Sunday and Monday afternoons. Dry weather is expected through at least Monday night at the TAF sites, though a stray shower or thunderstorm is possible to the west toward the Appalachians Sunday and Monday afternoons.

VFR conditions and southeasterly winds are expected at the terminals on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

MARINE
N/NW wind gusts of 20-25 knots continue through early afternoon in the wake of a departing cold front. Winds become lighter and then NE by tonight, then E to SE Sunday through Monday night.
Dry weather is expected, though gusts of 15-25 knots are possible during the late afternoon and evening hours, especially Monday.

Sub-SCA southeasterly winds are expected over the waters on both Tuesday and Wednesday.
