What is left of Chantal is moving through the Bahamas. I think that the bulk of the moisture will end up in the Carolinas by this weekend. I still think that there is a 20% chance that Chantal will redevelop once north of the Bahamas east of central Florida. The impacts from Chantal into the Carolinas and Virginia is to enhance thunderstorms and flash flooding.
I though originally that parts of the Northeast would get a break into the storms and humidity, but now it appears the upper-level low that comes in backs way to the southwest which allows the humidity to flow freely across areas that may have a reduction in humidity today and Friday. The wet pattern just does not wan to end.
Looking ahead to winter... the seasonal models are really having a field day with the outcome. Some say cold winter in the East and others say warm winter. Lots of fun coming trying to figure out the winter forecast this year.
It's going to be a stormy period across the country, but the models seem to differ on the outcome.
The storm that is coming into the Plains will produce a wide range of weather including snow, ice and flooding rains.
The holiday time will be stormy in the Plains and Front Range of the Rockies. Travel will be impacted by the weather.
A swath of moderate to heavy snow to move from the Midwest through the Great Lakes.
A storm will streak out of the Rockies into the Great Lakes producing a swath of a snow along its path.
