INGEST...  
 
12Z MODEL EVALUATION WITH PREFERENCES AND CONFIDENCE  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
   
..COLD FRONT PUSHING INTO THE SOUTHEAST
 
   
..EXITING TN VALLEY LOW WITH REDEVELOPMENT OFF THE EAST COAST
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
PREFERENCE: NON-NAM CONSENSUS  
CONFIDENCE: ABOVE AVERAGE  
 
THE MODELS TAKE A WAVE OF LOW PRESSURE AND AN ASSOCIATED SURFACE  
WAVE OUT OF THE TN VALLEY TODAY AND OFFSHORE THE MID-ATLANTIC  
STATES BY TONIGHT. LOW PRESSURE IS EXPECTED TO REDEVELOP OFF THE  
MID-ATLANTIC COAST OVERNIGHT AND WILL LIFT NORTHEAST AND OFFSHORE  
NEW ENGLAND ON WEDNESDAY. THE 12Z NAM TRACKS ITS LOW CENTER A TAD  
LEFT OF THE OTHERWISE WELL CLUSTERED MULTI-MODEL DETERMINISTIC  
SUITE...AND SO A NON-NAM CONSENSUS WILL BE PREFERRED.  
 
   
..POSITIVELY TILTED TROUGH EXITING THE WEST TODAY
 
   
..ENERGY CROSSING THE PLAINS ON WEDNESDAY
 
   
..REACHING THE SOUTHEAST BY THURSDAY
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
PREFERENCE: 00Z UKMET  
CONFIDENCE: AVERAGE  
 
THE MODELS TAKE A POSITIVELY-TILTED TROUGH EAST OUT OF THE  
INTERMOUNTAIN WEST AND ACROSS THE PLAINS THROUGH WEDNESDAY. THIS  
ENERGY WILL REACH THE SOUTHEAST BY THURSDAY BEFORE THEN EXITING  
OFF THE SOUTHEAST COAST. THE 12Z GFS BECOMES A PROGRESSIVE OUTLIER  
RELATIVE TO THE OTHER GUIDANCE WITH THIS SYSTEM. THE 00Z ECMWF  
MEANWHILE BECOMES A DEEPER OUTLIER WITH ITS SHORTWAVE TROUGH AS IT  
CROSSES THE SOUTHEAST ON THURSDAY AS IT SUGGESTS SOME SHORTWAVE  
AMPLIFICATION THAT THE REMAINING GUIDANCE DOES NOT SUPPORT. THE  
12Z NAM/00Z UKMET AND 00Z CMC SHOW A FAIR DEGREE OF CLUSTERING IN  
BETWEEN THE GFS AND ECMWF...BUT THE NAM LIKELY HAS A TAD TOO MUCH  
ENERGY IN THE BASE OF ITS TROUGH OVER THE NORTHERN GULF OF MEXICO  
BY THURSDAY. OVERALL...THE UKMET IS MOST LIKELY CLOSEST TO THE  
MODEL CONSENSUS WITH THE CMC JUST A TAD MORE PROGRESSIVE. WILL  
LEAN TOWARD THE UKMET FOR NOW.  
 
...DEEP CYCLONE DROPPING FROM THE GULF OF ALASKA TO OFFSHORE OF  
THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST...   
..OPENING INTO A TROUGH OVER THE NORTHWEST BY FRIDAY
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
PREFERENCE: NON-CMC CONSENSUS  
CONFIDENCE: AVERAGE  
 
A DEEP UPPER LOW OVER THE GULF OF AK WILL DROP SOUTH-SOUTHEAST AND  
THEN GRADUALLY EAST TOWARD THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST BY THURSDAY  
BEFORE THEN WEAKENING INTO A PROGRESSIVE TROUGH AXIS AND MOVING  
INLAND ACROSS THE NORTHWEST ON FRIDAY. THE MODELS ARE IN GOOD  
AGREEMENT THROUGH ABOUT 60 HOURS...BUT THEN THE 00Z CMC BECOMES A  
MORE PROGRESSIVE OUTLIER AS THE ENERGY BEGINS TO SHEAR OUT ACROSS  
THE NORTHERN PLAINS. WILL PREFER A NON-CMC CONSENSUS AT THIS TIME.  
 
   
..AMPLIFYING NORTHERN STREAM TROUGH/CLOSED LOW NEAR GREAT LAKES
 
   
..COLD FRONT CROSSING THE NORTHERN TIER STATES WED-FRI
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
PREFERENCE: NON-UKMET CONSENSUS  
CONFIDENCE: AVERAGE  
 
OVERALL...THE MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE THE DETAILS OF  
A VIGOROUS NORTHERN STREAM TROUGH THAT AMPLIFIES INTO A CLOSED LOW  
NORTH OF THE GREAT LAKES REGION ACROSS ONTARIO AND SOUTHERN QUEBEC  
BY THE END OF THE WEEK. THE 00Z UKMET AMPLIFIES ITS ENERGY A BIT  
NORTH OF THE OTHERWISE WELL-CLUSTERED GUIDANCE...WHICH ALSO ALLOWS  
DEEPENING SURFACE LOW PRESSURE CROSSING THE GREAT LAKES REGION TO  
LIFT FARTHER NORTH COMPARED TO THE MODEL CONSENSUS. WILL PREFER A  
NON-UKMET CONSENSUS AS A RESULT.
