It’s a day old now, but ECMWF 32 day run (along with its ensembles) looks like this:
After the middle of the month it allows more somewhat splitty troughs to move through with the ridging gone.
Interesting to note the 32 day control run (surface map) shows wetter conditions to the south with a splitting trough. Rain for California but just cooler and a little wetter for us. I hope that’s not a sign of the winter season to come!
