METEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION

The upper level analysis last evening featured strong upper level ridge centers in the southeast and in the southwest U.S. We see a moderate trough moving over the central plains and the southwest Midwest at this time. A second trough is moving east of New England. The northern branch of the jet stream features short wave troughs just off the west coast of Canada, over the eastern Canadian Prairies and over the Canadian Maritimes. Strong low centers are also located north of western Alaska and near the southern tip of Greenland.
