SYNOPSIS
High pressure continues remains across the region through Wednesday. A frontal system will bring unsettled conditions Thursday into Friday. A weak shortwave through may swing through on Saturday, followed by the return of high pressure Sunday through early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/
Dry and quiet conditions expected through the middle of this week as high pressure remains in control. Seasonal highs today and Wednesday afternoon in the mid 40s to lower 50s, with 30s to low 40s in the mountains. Lows tonight settle in the 20s, with temps a few degrees higher Wednesday night.

SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/
A weak mid-level trough approaches from the west Thursday as a warm front lifts north through the area Thursday morning into Thursday afternoon. A weak cold front also approaches from the west Thursday night. This is expected to bring some rain to the area, mostly in the Alleghenies and Potomac Highlands during the day, then spreading eastward toward I-95 Thursday night. Precip amounts look to be light at this time, generally less than a quarter of an inch. There was a slight threat for possibly some freezing rain in some of the mountain valleys, though that has now decreased to near zero as rain comes in later and temps quickly warm above freezing after sunrise. Mild temps in the low to mid 50s likely on Thursday, as lows remain in the 40s Thursday night.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/
A cold front associated with low pressure over the Ohio Valley will move through Friday morning. All precip should be rain at this juncture based on thermals and thicknesses out side of the mountains. Depending on your model of choice, some guidance does end precipitation as snow across the Alleghenies. Behind this, upslope snow will persist in the mountains. Uncertainty remains on how long, but model consensus has dry air moving in Saturday. Thereafter, a drying trend will ensue for the remainder of the weekend. Another system may impact the area early next week.

Highs in the 50s for most Friday (30s to 40s in the mountains). The effects of the cold advection behind the frontal boundaries will bring readings closer to climatology on Saturday. However, in the wake, winds return to west to southwesterly which yields another warming trend. Based on the latest extended guidance, this increase in temperatures could push into portions of next week as well.

AVIATION /19Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
VFR conditions expected through Wednesday night as high pressure remains in control. East to southeast winds this afternoon become light/variable tonight, then southerly Wednesday.

An area of low pressure approaches from the west Thursday, bringing some rain to all terminals by late evening. Some sub- VFR conditions are possible during the day, then become likely Thursday night.

Sub-VFR conditions are possible Into Friday afternoon as SHRA move through with a passing cold front. VFR thereafter. Winds become WNW Friday. Depending on how mixed the atmosphere becomes, some afternoon gusts could reach 20 to 30 knots in this post-frontal environment.

MARINE
A brief period of near-SCA conditions is possible in the open waters of the Chesapeake this evening. If winds materialize, a Marine Weather Statement will be issued. Otherwise, no marine hazards and generally sub- SCA conditions expected through Wednesday afternoon as high pressure remains across the region.

SCA conditions become increasingly likely Thursday afternoon into Thursday night amidst southerly flow ahead of an approaching area of low pressure.

SCA winds out of the WNW behind the cold front likely Friday. Winds decrease below SCA levels Saturday into Sunday.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING
Tidal anomalies are expected to increase mid to late week as southerly flow returns Wednesday into Thursday. Sensitive locations in Annapolis, Straits Point, and DC SW Waterfront could reach minor flood stage during the Friday morning high tide cycle.
