    Hurricane Barry

    I’m not buying the due west track into Texas. It seems to me that it’s a very unusual track given a) a starting Latitude that easily feels the westerlies and typically sees recurvature (climo), b)Absence of a robust WAR (which we clearly don’t have). Steering flow appears weak and ambiguous after the trough largely misses, but leaves a slight weakness in its wake. Right now I strongly prefer the meander n/nnw into LA.

    GFS continues to hint at a big storm potential around days 7-9. It’s a long shot but it’s all I’ve got, with this crappy pattern holding strong...

    Man, the most negative the NAO has been all cold season on May frickin 1st. That is almost so cruel as to think it intentional... I’d be more optimistic if we could at least see a big storm out of this...

    Sometimes we have to head north for the best weather. Gorgeous day in Portland ME. Partly cloudy, right around 60.

    Point taken. I was in Epping most of the day, and I think we hit 60 here. DAW and PSM never broke out but many points 10-20 miles south and west squeezed in a nice evening.

    Maybe. It’s beautiful out here right now. Sky just started to open up. Partly cloudy and warming up quickly. Sun doesn’t set til 7:30. So I’ll take it.

    Satellite looks like sun will break through over SE NH around 3-4 pm. We’ll try to make a run to 60 before the sun fades...

    I think I salvage a good chunk of the afternoon here. Taking the over on temps. Clearing SW to NE. System is also weak, and weakening as it slowly moves ENE. Late April sun will also help to burn off the low level laggards.

    The dew crowd will want to celebrate Thursday night through Saturday. This next system looks like it will flood us with a tropical airmass for a good 48 hrs. Anticipating the SE ridge to really start to flex in upcoming model runs...
