...DISCUSSION...
ON THE LARGE-SCALE...THE MEDIUM RANGE MODELS SUGGEST SIGNIFICANT
AMPLIFICATION OF THE UPPER FLOW ACROSS NORTH AMERICA DURING THIS
FORECAST PERIOD.  THIS APPEARS LIKELY TO INCLUDE THE WEST
NORTHWESTWARD REDEVELOPMENT OF AN INITIALLY FLAT SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
NEAR THE SOUTH ATLANTIC COAST INTO A MORE PROMINENT SUBTROPICAL HIGH
OVER THE SOUTHERN ROCKIES BY THE END OF THE PERIOD.  AT THE SAME
TIME...SHARP RIDGING...IN THE MEAN...MAY DEVELOP NORTHWARD ALONG AN
AXIS NEAR THE ROCKIES INTO THE CENTRAL CANADIAN PROVINCES...FLANKED
BY UPPER TROUGHING CENTERED NEAR THE PACIFIC COAST...AND FROM QUEBEC
SOUTHWARD NEAR APPALACHIANS BY EARLY NEXT WEEK.  SHORT WAVE
DEVELOPMENTS WITHIN THIS REGIME REMAIN MUCH MORE UNCERTAIN.  THE
EVOLVING PATTERN PROBABLY WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY CONSIDERABLE
STEEPENING OF MID-LEVEL LAPSE RATES ACROSS THE NORTHERN AND CENTRAL
PLAINS INTO THE UPPER MIDWEST...ASSOCIATED WITH A PLUME OF VERY WARM
ELEVATED MIXED LAYER AIR EMANATING FROM THE ROCKIES/PLATEAU REGION.
HOWEVER...WITH POOR PATTERN PREDICTABILITY COMPLICATING
MATTERS...LITTLE ELSE IS CURRENTLY READILY EVIDENT TO SUGGEST
ANYTHING BEYOND RELATIVELY MINOR OR MARGINAL /FOR THE SEASON/ SEVERE
WEATHER POTENTIAL ACROSS THE U.S. THROUGH THE EXTENDED RANGE.
