water vapor over NC shows dry air lifting
      #82473 - Wed Aug 20 2008 10:50 AM

Did anyone noticed on the water vapor view, the dry air that was supposingly keeping Fay south and forcing it to turn west - is lifting? Would that allow Fay to go further north and not turn west at all?

I believe it is building high pressure over the central atlantic and seaboard that is going to keep Fay south, not the actual dry air.....

I guess what I meant was there was a trough over NC that appears to be sliding to the east as shown on the water vapor model, and I thought that would allow Fay to move northward. The high pressure over Texas seem to be pushing to the east, so wouldn't that also allow Fay to move north?
