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.
Coastal storm will bring rain to the Northeast and maybe some wet snow over the hills. More rain for the Pac NW. development slow in the Gulf.
The tropics remain the big problem in the weather. Ana could hit the Pacific Northwest, Gonzalo will hit Europe, and development may occur in the Gulf.
Bermuda will get hit hard today by Gonzalo while in the Pacific, Ana will go south of Hawaii with only minimal impacts.
Heavy rains will affect the Northeast...Ana will bring some impacts to Hawaii...Gonzalo will be a disaster to Bermuda.
The band of heavy rains and storms will continue to move east and could get severe in New England.
Storms along the front will remain heavy to severe through Thursday.
