region coupled with decreasing winds. A dry warming trend is
expected through early next week.

Discussion...
the upper level low that brought scattered showers to the area
today has moved off to the northeast. A few sprinkles may fall
over the northeast mts tonight but that will be about it for
precip. A cold pool aloft will remain over the northern tier and
could keep more cloud cover through the night. Evening update is to
adjust cloud cover and overnight temperatures. Rest of the
forecast is in good shape. A building ridge will put temperatures
on an upward trend along with dry conditions through the weekend.
