EXTENDED FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER COLLEGE PARK MD
1155 AM EDT THU AUG 28 2014

VALID 12Z SUN AUG 31 2014 - 12Z THU SEP 04 2014


RELIED ON THE 00Z/28 NAEFS FOR THIS FORECAST PACKAGE. THE ENSEMBLE
MEANS CONTINUE TO AFFORD A STEADIER PATH TO THE FLOW ACROSS NORTH
AMERICA AT THE MEDIUM RANGE THAN THE VARIOUS OPERATIONAL MODELS.
WITH TIME, THE HIGHER HEIGHTS OVER THE NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES
ARE PROGGED TO COME DOWN AS A FAIRLY ZONAL JET PUNCHES EASTWARD
ALONG THE CANADIAN BORDER. MOST OF THE RAINFALL AND STRONG
CONVECTION IS EXPECTED OVER THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN STATES THIS
PERIOD, WITH COOL--BUT NOT ESPECIALLY WET--CONDITIONS OVER THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST.
