STILL PREFER THE NAEFS MEAN OVER THE OTHER GLOBAL NUMERICAL
GUIDANCE FOR THE FLOW ACROSS CENTRAL NORTH AMERICA AT THE MEDIUM
RANGE. BOTH THE GEFS AND CMCE ENSEMBLE MEMBERS--WHICH COMPRISE THE
NAEFS--REFLECT A MOST SUBSTANTIAL INFILTRATION OF CONTINENTAL
POLAR AIR INTO THE NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES DAYS 6 AND 7 THAN
THE EUROPEAN CENTRE GUIDANCE. ALL THE MODELS HAVE BEEN SLOW TO
LATCH ONTO THE TENDENCY FOR PERSISTENT LOWER HEIGHTS OVER
SOUTHEASTERN CANADA SINCE JULY 1.

THE PATTERN IS NOT A PARTICULARLY WET ONE FOR THE NATION. MOST OF
THE RAINFALL IS EXPECTED OVER THE MIDWEST. A SMALLER AREA OF VERY
WET WEATHER IS ANTICIPATED OVER EXTREME SOUTHERN TEXAS, WHERE
MOISTURE ON THE NORTH SIDE OF TROPICAL SYSTEM--PROGGED TO TRACK
INTO EASTERN MEXICO--WILL ENHANCE SHOWER ACTIVITY.
