A sneak preview of the NWS week 2 forecast. There are numerous guidance products and they all have the same general trend(cooler) I will show a couple here that don't perfectly capture the anamolies of them all put together.
You should assume that the Midwest will be cooler than in recent week 2 forecasts.
The GFS ensembles are extremely cool......likely too cool, especially using the guidance tool(Klein) below but I will show it so that you can see what represents the extreme end of cool possibilities for week 2:
Precip continues to be ABOVE, except in the northern tier that may be dominated by cool and dry Canadian high pressure systems:
CFS week 3 and 4 forecast brings the heat ridge back from the S.Plains to the Ohio Valley and the North East.
Also along the West Coast..................and we all know that a week 3-4 forecast can be taken to the bank..........yeah, bankRUPT.
Am wondering if I should continue with weather at this time frame............oh well, it can be entertaining.
Rains dry up under the heat ridge S.Plains to Ohio Valley, ok elsewhere.
And the automated NWS forecast product for Sunday came out much warmer for the week 2 period than what was shown in the guidance above/earlier. The pattern for that period is uncertain enough so that just about anything is possible:
