THE 00Z/03 AND 06Z/03 MODEL GUIDANCE WAS IN GOOD AGREEMENT ACROSS
THE UNITED STATES THROUGH THE MEDIUM RANGE, ADVERTISING AN ACTIVE
POLAR FRONT FROM THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST TO THE GREAT PLAINS TO THE
SOUTHEAST. RELIED ON THE ENSEMBLE MEANS FOR THE SYNOPTIC FEATURES
AND GRIDDED FIELDS, WITH WAVES ALONG THE POLAR FRONT OVER THE
CENTRAL STATES THE NOISIEST ASPECT OF THE VARIOUS DETERMINISTIC
SOLUTIONS. IN GENERAL, EXPECT NEAR- OR BELOW-NORMAL TEMPERATURES
NORTH OF THE POLAR FRONT, WITH THE MOST APPRECIABLE AUGUST HEAT
CONFINED TO THE WESTERN TEXAS PANHANDLE AND SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO.
RAINFALL WILL BE DECIDEDLY UNSUMMERY IN COVERAGE ACROSS THE
MID-ATLANTIC AND SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND DURING THE FIRST HALF OF THE
PERIOD AS AN IMPRESSIVE FRONTAL WAVE TRANSLATES FROM THE MIDWEST
TO THE ATLANTIC OCEAN. OTHERWISE, NUMEROUS SHOWERS ARE ANTICIPATED
ASTRIDE THE POLAR FRONT FROM THE NORTHWEST TO THE SOUTHEAST, WITH
A SQUASHED MONSOON OVER THE FOUR-CORNERS STATES.
