Gordon's remnants tracking through the MW into the lower GL's later in the week, may look like that land 'cane we had earlier in the year. Some of the models showing a strong, wrapped up defo band within this storm system. I hope it tracks nearby so I can experience the tropical downpours.
Meantime, the sun came out during the morning and the atmosphere destabilized. As a result, storms are firing up to the south and moving into the area.
Boy, talk about a flip in the modeling. None of them saw this coming but the idea was there for cooling. The last 5 runs per the 12z GEFS show the trends for this week's cool down. I wouldn't buy the big ridge the GEFS keep firing up in Week 2. The pattern doesn't fit that going forward. Blocking looks to be blossoming and there are reasons why this may last.
For instance, notice the warming at both 10mb/30mb exploding quite early this season...
The next system on the radar has always been in and around 9/11. IF, and a big IF, we could somehow get Gordon to phase into a deeper trough with the system tracking along the U.S./Canadian bordersnap into Autumn pretty darn quickly. Like I said, that's still a big question and by no means is it a lock, but with blocking in the high lat's and a developing +PNA pattern with ridging into NW NAMER, something may snap.
