THE ENSEMBLE MEANS STILL TELL THE TALE THE BEST WITH THE FLOW OVER
NORTH AMERICA AT THE MEDIUM RANGE. IN THE WAKE OF THE BIG CYCLONE
CLEARING THE GREAT LAKES DAY 3, THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE WILL BE THE
TIMING OF THE SHORTWAVES IN THE NEW BROAD TROUGH ACROSS THE
MIDWEST AND NORTHEAST--THE MAIN REASON FOR GOING WITH THE MEANS.
THE GREAT LAKES LOW AND ITS ATTENDANT COLD FRONT WILL TAKE MOST OF
THE PRECIPITATION WITH THEM--SAVE THE FAR SOUTHEAST WHERE THE
POLAR FRONT IS EXPECTED TO COME AND GO IN TIDES.
