SYNOPSIS. Strong Canadian high pressure over the Great Lakes will slowly build toward the region through the weekend before shifting into the Southeast early next week, before migrating offshore toward the middle of the work week.

NEAR TERM /TONIGHT/. Large Canadian high pressure building over the northern Great Lakes is responsible for the gusty northwest winds this evening as the Mid-Atlantic region resides in the wake of a cold front marching southward into the Southeastern states. Satellite imagery and surface observations highlight these gusty northwest winds advecting in a much drier airmass, and allowing earlier clouds to diminish outside the higher elevations of the Allegheny Mountains. The gusty winds will persist through the overnight hours as a much colder and drier airmass takes the reigns. Even with the elevated winds, temperatures are expected to dip into the teens and 20s for the entire CWA, likely holding closer to 30 degrees in the city centers. Wind chills by daybreak Friday will hover below zero across the higher elevations, with single digits and teens elsewhere.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. A large H5 low over eastern Canada will continue to retrograde inducing a large upper level trough that extends down to the southeast CONUS. Meanwhile upper level ridging persists over the Midwest which will result in a large surface high pressure residing over the Great Lakes region. Influence from the high will continue the dry weather trend into early next week as the gradient between the high and low induce gusty NW winds that are expected to continue through Saturday. Thereafter, the low will exit off into the North Atlantic, allowing the high to slowly slide southeast over the CWA which will allow the winds to diminish Sunday into Monday.

Temperatures will remain just below normal for this time of year through the weekend with cold overnight lows in the 20s and daytime highs in the 40s for most with low 30s across the mountains.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. Mainly dry weather is likely to continue Sunday through Wednesday with a notable warming trend Tuesday into Wednesday.

An upper-level trough that will be overhead on Sunday will move offshore by Monday afternoon as a region of surface high pressure builds locally. The surface high will slowly move offshore Tuesday into Wednesday allowing for return flow. This coupled with an upper- level ridge building over the Plains propagating eastward will allow for temperatures to soar into the 60s with 70 degrees possible in some of the warmer locales Tuesday into Wednesday.

It is possible we get through the entire long term period without any measurable precipitation. The next opportunity for precipitation arrives with a cold front Wednesday night into Thursday. Guidance varies regarding how much moisture if any will be associated with this feature.

AVIATION /03Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Large high pressure building into the Great Lakes will continue to deliver northwest wind gusts to around 25 knots through the overnight hours as VFR conditions prevail. Gusty northwest winds, dry conditions, and VFR VIS/CIGs are expected to persist through Saturday as the high slowly nudges closer to the region.

Winds will begin to diminish Saturday night as high pressure becomes more centralized over the region. VFR conditions are likely Sunday into early next week as high pressure builds nearby.

MARINE. SCA in effect for all waters tonight as the gradient remains tight with large Canadian high pressure building into the Great Lakes and a cold front pushes into the Southeast. Gusty northwest winds will persist through Saturday will SCA gusts expected.

Winds will begin to diminish thereafter as high pressure becomes more centralized over the region into early next week. Sub-SCA winds are expected Sunday into Monday.

FIRE WEATHER. Dry weather will persist through Saturday and the RH values will be low each day (20s and 30s today, teens and 20s Friday, and 20s to lower 30s Saturday). Gusty northwest winds are expected during this time as well, with frequent gusts around 20 to 30 mph for most areas. As fuels continue to dry out over the next few days, the meteorological conditions may enhance the threat for the spread of wildfires, especially Friday afternoon and Saturday afternoon (when fuels will be driest).
