ridging both aloft and at the surface prevails through much of
the period. Initially, a short wave trough over central Canada
and the northern plains translates east during the mid week

half of the country. This feature sends a dry cold frontal
passage through the region Thursday night. Thereafter, the upper
air pattern becomes amplified with a trough moving into the
western U.S., With heights building across the east. While
amplified, the flow is still fairly progressive with the trough
approaching the east early next week. The associated cold front
approaches Monday into next Tuesday.

in the mid 40s to mid 50s.
