Unseasonably cold weather looks to be moving out, as the NAEFS is showing a warming trend across west North America, which could lead to some warmer temperatures drifting east into the more populated regions of the nation. The likelihood of this is actually fairly high, considering the Northern Hemisphere operates in a west-to-east movement, which means warm air moving east is only natural.
The NAEFS did very well last winter and has exceeded expectations so far this summer in its accuracy in forecasting. I find no reason to stop trusting this ensemble set, and I believe that this unusually cold pattern's back is breaking into a new pattern. However, this issue will have to ait for the next Long Range Lookout segment.
