The long range GFS really starting in early August, shows a train of cooler air pushing into the northeast and Midwest. Showing temperatures in the Low 70′s in the Big cities for stretches and the low 80′s for stretches. Now models tend to overdo cooler air around this time of year, but considering the cooler temperature trend we have gotten into the last week or so, it cannot be ruled out. I will keep a very close eye on this as many of us are looking for much needed relief. In short the month starts off the first couple of days Hot. (upper 80′s) then as we head towards the 5th of the month temperatures drop into the 70′s. We will keep a close eye on this over the next week or so. Unfortunately it looks as if the heat will build over Texas and the southeast, it bears watching, as accuweather thinks this will push into the northeast by late August. Right now, i just dont see it that way. From what Im seeing for now, it looks like the oppressive heat is just about done for the summer.
Side Note: National Weather Service Sees the same thing I do for the first half of next month. I will take a look at 18Z model runs and get back with more information later, and see if it stays cooler than average even into late month. Could this be the start of the winter pattern? too early to tell, will have to see.
