Features to Watch

Quasi-Stationary Front

A summer favorite appears to have been the west to east stationary frontal systems that move into a region, stall while disturbances move along them, then retreat back out of the region. Their movements, timing, and location of stalling can all be difficult to predict and we saw that yet again this past week. The feature is once again expected to retreat southward throu...

While we will remain in a trough the pattern is moving along every so slowly west to east in a zonal flow. As the present trough moves out a very slow moving 500mb feature will move lazily eastward from the Mid West to the Mid Atlantic. This is going to create extreme differences in the weather from north to south.

If this pattern materializes it will create a stubborn pattern of drier weather through th...
