Low pressure off the Carolina Coastline has drifted just far enough away to allow high pressure off the New England coast to gain the upper hand. The result is sunny skies. And over the next few days, the center of that high pressure area will expand and strenghten. It will essentially block out the advance of clouds and rain approaching from the west. Temperatures will be warmer than they have bee recently but will not be excessively warm. 

 As the air mass dries, tree pollen counts will surge and grass pollen counts will increase, as well. Brian van de Graaff wrote an interesting blog about molds and allergens.
