Pacific Typhoons Long Range Eastern US

A few days ago we put a post up about Typhoon Omais as it was forecast to recurve in the Western Pacific and head for Alaska and the Northeast Pacific. Since everything in the atmosphere is connected one way or another, the recurving pattern in the Western Pacific could have implications down the road for the long term weather pattern in the Eastern United States.


Looking at the Western Pacific Satellite Loop below you can see Typhoon Omais in the center of the picture as it interacts with a cold front north of Japan. The typhoon will recurve in the area to the east of that front and gradually transtition into a large extratropical cyclone.

We saw this happen a few times in the winter of 2014-2015 when several recurving typhoons created a large extratropical cyclone in the Gulf of Alaska. This in turn created a strong ridge in the western US and Canada and deep trough in the east. The implications of a trough in the east this time of year would be for a cooler and wetter pattern. It also opens the door for a tropical system to move up the east coast if one happens to be around at the wrong place and wrong time.

European Model Day 10 August 17, 2016

Of course other factors come into play here such as whether there is a little blocking going on in the Atlantic. As far as the tropics are concerned, development there hinges on favorable upper level winds and a light wind shear environment in the highest levels of the atmosphere. The European model at day 10 in the Pacific shows other typhoon action with a trough along the east coast of Asia. Both the European and the GFS models recurve another typhoon into the westerlies late in the forecast period.

Of course this has implications beyond the two week forecast period. If these events do not materialize it would seem the latter part of August will be hot here in the east as a mean ridge seems to want to try and park itself here. Never does any of this stuff come with a guarantee.

With regards to the tropics, I took a snap shot of the GFS at day 12 which is on August 20th. The upper air profile appears to be favorable overall covering a large area of the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. The question is whether there will be strong enough disturbances in the form of tropical waves. African dust from the Sahara is always an issue. This impedes development. The Bermuda/Azores high is in place and about average in strength, though its position is a little south of average. From here on we will just play along with the day to day and see what happens.
