ECMWF Weekly Maps Thursday PM

January 2, 2014

You know the drill, 4 maps from last night’s ECMWF showing upper-level height anomaly for the next 4 weeks.  One map for each week:

500za_week1_bg_NA

500za_week2_bg_NA

500za_week3_bg_NA

500za_week4_bg_NA

Looks like the ridge flattens next week, then redevelops right over us about 10 days or so out, that can be seen now on the operational maps.  After that it pushes a bit west the last two weeks, possibly colder?  We’ll see.
