Long Range GFS Points to Stormy South

The latest long range GFS is pointing to a very wet and stormy South, with over 8 inches of precipitation forecasted in the next 16 days by the GFS. This high precipitation will come from a number of systems.

These high precipitation forecasts are not surprising, as the Alaskan Vortex currently in place will be sending a number of storm systems down the Northeast, into the Southwest where the systems will eject east into the South Plains and potentially cause some severe storms.

You cannot see the storm's precipitation in the Southwest because there is no Gulf Air to influence precipitation to fall in that area.
