SYNOPSIS
A cold front will move to our south overnight into Tuesday, before returning northward as a warm front on Wednesday. A strong cold front will move through this weekend, with high pressure building in early next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM TUESDAY MORNING/
Clearing skies expected the remainder of tonight behind the departing cold front. High pressure will build over the area into Tuesday morning with quiet conditions. Lows tonight will be about 5 to 7 degrees cooler than last night with high pressure pushing slightly cooler air straight out of the north.

SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/
The cold front, briefly becoming stationary along the Virginia and North Carolina border, will return north as a warm front and bring instability into the region once again. Highs Tuesday will be noticeably cooler than Monday with highs in the 70s.
Scattered showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms will spread northeast later Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. More showers are possible Wednesday night as a front crosses the region. Highs Wednesday will be a couple of degrees cooler than Tuesday as we will see an uptick in cloud cover and rain showers on the unstable side of the warm front.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/
Models continue to show varying solutions regarding the synoptic pattern at the end of this week into the weekend. A weak disturbance and surface low over the area Thursday morning will bring a chance of showers, though rain chances are not particularly high at this time. After that, models vary on when/how fast a cold front sweeps through the area. The GFS is more progressive, showing a clean FROPA sometime Friday night, then high pressure building in from the north through the weekend. While the ECMWF, indicates a sagging front that slowly moves through the area making for a wet weekend.

The temperature forecast will be dependent on what happens with the aforementioned front. Currently have above normal highs in the low to mid 70s Thursday through Saturday, becoming near normal in the 60s for Sunday.

AVIATION /01Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
VFR conditions overnight through early Wednesday with high pressure keeping most areas dry, despite a warm front pushing up from the north. It will be around midday Wednesday through Wednesday night that increased showers could bring us some sub- VFR conditions.

Showers are still possible Thursday and Friday at all terminals, though any impacts are likely to be minimal. VFR conditions prevail, with brief periods of sub- VFR conditions possible in any heavy shower or storm. Northeast winds around 10kt, with some gusts to 20kt possible each afternoon.
