PRELIMINARY EXTENDED FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER COLLEGE PARK MD
1245 AM EDT SUN AUG 30 2015

VALID 12Z WED SEP 02 2015 - 12Z SUN SEP 06 2015


THE MODELS INDICATE A SEASONAL PATTERN ACROSS THE NATION FOR THE
START OF METEOROLOGICAL AUTUMN, WITH A BROAD TROUGH OVER THE
NORTHWEST AND THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE OVER THE EAST. THE GUIDANCE IS
IN REASONABLE AGREEMENT, WITH THE MEANS STILL SIDESTEPPING WHAT
FEW THORNY ISSUES REMAIN. THE RAINS IN THE NORTHWEST SHOULD EASE
WITH TIME AS CONVECTION AMPS UP OVER THE NORTH CENTRAL STATES WITH
THE PROGRESSION OF THE TROUGH. THE SOUTHEAST LOOKS SHOWERY THROUGH
THE PERIOD, WITH MOST OF THE RAINFALL FOCUSING NEAR THE COAST AND
OVER FLORIDA. THE SOUTHWEST MONSOON APPEARS TO TAPER TO A TRICKLE
WITH THE SHIFTING HEIGHTS NORTH OF THE REGION.
