.DISCUSSION...

Sfc high in play as it continues to work our way from the central
Plains. Northerly fetch is combining with rather low thickness
values and is keeping temperatures a good 10 degrees or so below
normal. The center of the high will reach WV by 12z. Winds will be
light so again, near to just below freezing temperatures are
expected area wide. It will be a little warmer on Tuesday but with
sub 850 mb temps remaining, highs will hold mostly in the 50s
despite the plentiful March sun.

Our next chance of showers will occur by Wed nt. Looks like a rather
weak system as a frontal boundary pushes through with perhaps up to
.15 inches of rainfall. Pops wont be that high and will remain in
the chance category.

In the ext fcst, still looking at dry weather into Saturday at
least. It will still be on the cool side for mid March for the 1st
half of the extended period. Return southerly flow will allow temps
to return to more normal levels. Moisture will also be on the
increase with showers and a few thunderstorms expected to return by
Sunday and Monday. Maybe a half inch of rainfall so not that bad. It
appears that the area rivers and streams will continue to recover.
