The Southerly Extent Of Coming Cool Shot Is Impressive, Heat May Not Get Back East Till Sept

Sorry for the briefness of this post tonight guys and gals. I am just heading off to work and I’m already running late šŸ™

I wanted to leave you with this before heading. Take a look firstly at the above 850 chart off the ECMWF and notice how far south this takes theĀ coming cool shot by the time we get out to Monday of next week. That is impressive for mid-August and would support highs stuck in the 70s all the way to the central if not southern Gulf Coast/Southeast states. Clear skies and light winds coupled with dry air would allow night lows to fall into the unusually chilly low 50s with suburban 40s not outwith the realm of possibility.

What this model run also suggests is a persistent trough and cooler air mass lingering through the remainder of August from the Minnesota or Wisconsin on eastĀ and no real chance for the heat which will continue to linger from San Diego to Salt Lake getting across.

Watch out in the Pacific Northwest btw late this week. I wouldn’t be surprised if folks in Seattle take a shot at 100 before things cool off considerably this weekend and next week with a trough pushing in.

At 10 days out, in the chart below, the model sees a trough and cool shot drilling into the Pac Northwest from Alaska. Could this be the breaker of heat for Southwest? May send last batch of upper 90s and 100s in the Plains once again..

Food for thought!
