Saturday-Tuesday (previous)...Some pretty large differences show up in the model guidance W/R/T synoptic pattern over the CONUS and western Atlantic for early next week. The ECM shows more significant dampening out of the mid-upper trough, whilst strengthening the eastern CONUS/western Atlantic ridge to a much greater extent through the period. On the other hand, the GFS keeps more of a weakness over the mid Atlantic and SE CONUS during this period.
At the surface, this results in a stronger ECM western Atlantic ridge and freshening easterlies, while the GFS solution shows a weak`bubble` ridge over/offshore north and central Florida. As of late, the pattern has favored strong deep layer ridging to the north, and see no reason why this wouldn`t return once again.
