The New LRC Is Just Days Away From Beginning
Good morning folks:
The fun is about to begin.........
The old pattern is almost over. The weather pattern, that we are about to experience for the next year, will begin later this week. There is still strong evidence that we are in the last few days of the old pattern, and the new LRC has yet to begin. Every year a unique pattern begins around the end of the first week of October. Our team has been discussing how this past pattern was so bad, so unique, and so frustrating to us near Kansas City, that it will likely be quite obvious when the new pattern begins. And, the evidence is showing up by later this week, which we will be discussing today.
Let’s begin with this mornings radar:
There is a small area of mixed precipitation of rain. sleet, and snow near the USA/Canada border early this morning. Tropical Storm Rosa, what is left of a major CAT 4 hurricane was about to move across Baja California into the southwestern United States. This tropical system is getting absorbed into the new pattern. This system is a great example of how a major hurricane, Super Typhoon, or any tropical system is just a very small disturbance in the flow that does not help create any pattern, as other meteorologists suggest at this time of the year. The LRC, the cycling pattern just picks these systems up and they are just as influential as a complex of thunderstorms or disturbance. Take a look at what happens to Rosa as it enters the overall westerly belt farther north:
Look at this closely; you have got to be kidding me? Is this really happening? A HUGE trough is predicted by most models to form over the western United States. This is exhibit A for the new LRC. This is something so very different. Now, we have to experience this first as it is still on models. It must actually happen first.
Fun times ahead folks!
