METEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION

The northern branch of the jet stream features a blocking ridge over Alaska and northwest Canada. And the polar vortex over central and eastern Canada extending across Greenland. This is a cold pattern for much of Canada except the far west. The southern branch of the jet features a trough in the western Gulf of Alaska. A ridge along and off the west coast of the U.S. And a broad trough across the central and eastern U.S. which is in phase with the polar vortex. Subtropical high pressure is located off the west coast of Mexico.
