SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:Sunny skies and seasonably cool temperatures will prevail through tomorrow as a reinforcing push of cool air moves off the coast. We will see a gradual warm-up over the weekend with slowly increasing clouds and humidity levels.
At the surface, a cold front is pushing deep into Texas and the South this morning with the extended front stretching all the way from the northern Rockies southward over Texas and then eastward to lows over North Carolina and West Virginia. Elsewhere, a Nor'easter is located east of Maine, while high pressure is centered over the Plains and much of the western third of the country.
At the upper-levels, a low pressure trough is digging south from the Great Lakes into the Ohio Valley, while a high pressure ridge sits over the western half of the country.
Seasonably cool, dry weather is on tap for the nest couple of days, with a reinforcing shot of cooler air today. We will see slow warm-up though the weekend as winds back around to the south and southwest. Although clouds and humidity levels will increase over the weekend, it appears as through rain chances will remain very low until late Sunday or early next week.
The Tropical Atlantic Basin continues to be quiet overall with no active tropical cyclones and tropical development not expected over the coming 48-hours.
