    1. Midsummer heat bakes the Great Lakes and Northeast, but a cold front arriving Wednesday (Great Lakes) and Thursday (Northeast) will usher in cooler air.

    2. Maria continues moving very slowly northward well east of the Georgia/South Carolina coast. Virtually all the computer models show a northward motion followed by a turn to the northeast:


    3. High clouds fanning out from the storm actually head northwest as seen on the following map. Sometimes the movement of such a cloud plume hints at the future track of the storm. However, only one outlying track toward the northwest is shown on the collection of tracks above.


    The band of clouds, showers and thunderstorms in the middle of the country has formed out ahead of the cold front that should reach the Northeast later this week. Most models show little or no precipitation reaching the northern Appalachians or New England with the front.
