845pm EST Monday Nov 18 2019

The majority of the forecast remains on track for the evening update. Temps have been decreased in accordance with surface obs/model trends. Cooling will continue overnight with the conditions being primed for strong radiational cooling: relatively calm winds, mostly clear skies, and lack of moisture which will lead to lows in the low to mid 40s across the region.

Near Term - Through Tonight
A shortwave trough has helped to drive some drier air into the region. Apart from a few upper level clouds trying to filter into the area, clouds will be few and far between for the rest of today and tonight. With dry air at the surface and the lack of cloud cover, radiational cooling will allow temperatures to fall a couple of degrees cooler tonight than this morning. Winds will continue to be light and out of the west and northwest.

Short Term - Tuesday Through Wednesday Night
The first half of the week will feature a transition from troughing aloft, to ridging aloft. Dry conditions are expected, with a gradual warming trend back to seasonable temperatures.

Long Term - Thursday Through Monday
Ridging will prevail through the remainder of the week, though the axis will gradually shift eastward in response to an approaching frontal system. There is a little better consensus regarding the timing of the front, which appears most likely late Saturday through the early morning hours Sunday. Estimated rainfall amounts with the front appear to be below an inch on average.
