.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure will maintain warm and dry weather into the
middle of next week.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
The first full day of Autumn will be Summer-like with highs
in the mid 80s to near 90. Stacked high pressure will provide
the subsidence to keep a relatively cloud-free sky. Clear skies
will carry into the overnight hours tonight. This will allow
for a large diurnal temperature range, but lows are still
expected to remain higher than seasonal averages.

&&

.SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
Upper-level ridge will build further, while slowly shifting
eastward over the region. This will keep the forecast dry and
warm through the early part of next week. Highs will regularly
push near the 90 degree mark across the lower terrain.

&&

.LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/...
Models continue to insist on a pattern shift for the latter half
of next week. Although a generally dry frontal passage is
indicated, warm weather will be interrupted as high temperature
about 15 degrees above seasonal levels is moderated back toward
the averages.

&&

.AVIATION /14Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
After patchy fog lifts early this morning, high pressure will
maintain light wind and VFR.


.Outlook...
General restrictions are not expected until the approach of a
cold front during the middle of next week.

&&

.PBZ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
MD...None.
OH...None.
PA...None.
WV...None.
