LONG TERM [Friday through Tuesday]...
The GFS & ECMWF remain in pretty good agreement, forecasting a
quick de- amplification of the 500 mb height pattern over the
CONUS this weekend, followed by significant re-amplification early
next week. Fair weather and slightly below-average temperatures
are expected behind Thursday`s cold front, with highs in the upper
50s to lower 60s Friday through Sunday, and the potential for
light freezes and/or frost Saturday & Sunday mornings. Increasing
moisture and warming temperatures are expected early next week, as
a warm front develops along the Gulf Coast. A slight chance of
rain will be introduced For Christmas due to the increasing Q-G
forcing and deep layer moisture.
