Long Range Forecast: Cool Air moves East, Ridge builds in the West

This is the Long Range Forecast until September 26, 2011.
This period will feature the cool Canadian High pressure moving east and a building ridge of high pressure in the West in the Nevada region. That ridge will expand eastward and eventually begin affecting the Midwest and possibly even the East Coast. Here's the current 8 day temperature anomaly shown in Figure 1, the visual aid of the cool air moving east in Figure 2, and the building ridge in the West in Figure 3.
