The NAO will remain negative through next week, so that means we need to watch the East Coast for another storm. The GFS is now showing that storm while the Euro goes out to sea with the storm. The Euro should come around to the storm idea.
Now understand, I am not saying a big storm is coming. What develops should be much weaker than Sandy and produce only gusty winds and rain. What it will do is cause rain over the hard hit areas of the mid-Atlantic delaying clean-up efforts. There is an outside chance the storm will cause higher tides along the coast again which would not be good for the beaches already destroyed by Sandy.
Once we get past that storm, the pattern changes and the storms go back to the West, and the Northeast gets a chance to dry out.
Here are the scenarios for the track of the tropical system.
Scenarios with our tropical system. Severe storms for the Midwest today.
We may see the tropics get active and produce a storm next week. We could see a storm approaching the US Gulf Coast by the Labor day weekend.
The pattern will bring heavy thunderstorms today and Wednesday. Video reviews the areas where the storms will hit.
No widespread severe weather just a few across the Midwest today.
The pattern is going to switch from the trough in the East to a trough in the West. That means warmth!
