Decreasing Clouds, Cool
Clouds slowly peel back through the day revealing a good round of late afternoon sun. The fall-feel continues with temperatures 20-degrees cooler than what they were a couple of days ago. Friday through the weekend is absolutely gorgeous accompanied by a slow and modest warming trend.

High pressure centered over New England remains wedged against the Appalachians today keeping it cool even for mid September standards. Clouds decrease as the day progresses and skies generally clear tonight. Tomorrow morning is noticeably cooler as overnight clearing allows for good radiative conditions.
The overall forecast story is dry and trending warmer- go figure. Upper level ridging responsible for the recent July feel in September and lack of rainfall gradually returns. Temperatures bounce back in stepwise fashion adding a couple/few degrees each day through the weekend.
The only weather feature of note is a frontal passage late Monday night. Maybe a shower materializes somewhere, but I'm keeping it dry. Temperatures are briefly knocked down a tad Tuesday behind the front only to bounce back to the seasonably warm category Wednesday (and the remainder of next week).
