A very mild, almost spring-time weather, will consume the Eastern third to half of the U.S. this week with well above normal temperatures and perhaps a record high or two on Thursday and Friday in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Meanwhile on Tuesday, a system with a stream of moisture will arrive into the Pacific Northwest and a storm will develop and take shape near the southern Plains. Read More >

Latest Aviation Discussion:
.AVIATION /08Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/... VFR conditions are expected through Wednesday as high pressure dominates the weather pattern. A weak cold front will approach Wednesday, but likely won't result in any flight restrictions. Gusty winds are expected this afternoon though as a weak cold front pushes through from the north. Winds could gust up to 25 knots at times out of the NW. High pressure builds over the area, then shifts offshore on Tuesday, shifting winds once again out of the south to southwest at around 20 to 25 kts. By Wednesday night, the aforementioned frontal boundary will start to lift north through the region. This could bring sub-VFR CIGs. A cold front will approach Thursday with a chance for brief sub-VFR conditions in showers and low clouds. Southerly winds may gust above 20 kt as well. The next low pressure system may arrive on Friday, but confidence in timing and impacts is low. AVIATION...ADS/CJL Update as of: 326 AM EST Mon Feb 6 2023
