Good point.

This mornings MRF supports that in the Day7-10 range.  Notice that wedge
shaped trough that Bastardi has talked about is slipping back into the
eastern Pacific off of Mexico or California around Day7.  Thats a 4-7 day
connection isn't it?  And the highs go up, up north near Greenland starting
a block and the whole rotation of the cold per the MRF by Day10 is up north
of the Lakes and it is much further east then it has been the past 2 weeks.
Does that seem right?
Bastardi should jump on this tomorrow in his discussion.
