.DISCUSSION...
 
High pressure will drift southeast of the area through Monday
while building northward aloft from the Southeast U.S. into the
Mid-Atlantic. A warm front across the northern portion of the area 
will drift north into Ohio and Pennsylvania tonight into Monday. By 
Monday, a strong cold front will move into our region from the west 
accompanied by heavy rain showers and gusty winds. Relatively mild 
temperatures through Tuesday will give way to colder conditions 
again behind the cold front Wednesday, but nothing like the bitter 
we saw the first half of the month.
