Fall forecast indicators

– the heat ridge will slaken off into the fall but still be centered over the rocky mtns.

– tropical activity should be above normal


jet stream

    like the fay forecast i put out yesturday, sharp cutoff on the western edge with totals. most areas east of 1-75 should get 2 inches in the next 24 hr.

    gustov likely to be a cat 4+ hurricane over the gulf this weekend.
