EXTENDED FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER COLLEGE PARK MD
1253 AM EDT FRI SEP 12 2014

VALID 12Z MON SEP 15 2014 - 12Z FRI SEP 19 2014


THE FLOW PATTERN AND ITS ATTENDANT SENSIBLE WEATHER AT THE MEDIUM
RANGE LOOK TRANQUIL ACROSS THE UNITED STATES. THE ENSEMBLE MEANS
ARE PERFECTLY SERVICEABLE--WITH THE BENEFIT OF SIDESTEPPING THE
FEW BUGABOOS THAT DO EXIST AMONG THE DETERMINISTIC SOLUTIONS. IN
GENERAL, A HEALTHY, FULL-LATITUDE RIDGE WILL ONCE AGAIN CLAIM ITS
TERRITORY ASTRIDE THE UNITED STATES AND CANADIAN ROCKIES, WITH A
BROAD TROUGH PHASING OVER EASTERN NORTH AMERICA. THE UPCOMING
PATTERN WILL FLIP THE SIGN OF THE TEMPERATURE ANOMALIES CURRENTLY
IN PLACE ACROSS THE UNITED STATES, WITH THE NORTHWEST GETTING WARM
AND THE EAST GETTING COOL. MOST OF THE RAINFALL SHOULD WRING OUT
OVER THE SOUTHEAST TO THE SOUTH OF THE POLAR FRONT, THOUGH THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST COAST AND CASCADES SHOULD GET WET BY THE END OF
THE PERIOD.
