Current Weather Outlook

Written by

At this point we have a storm that appears to be headed towards Baja California today (Monday) and back towards Salt Lake City on Thursday. It made me think of the Camino Real or Royal Road of which there were at least a half dozen in Mexico. At any this very meridional trough for so early in the Fall may well dominate CONUS weather this week. Elsewhere, Typhoon Megi may pass North of the Philippines on the way to Taiwan and then possibly Hong Kong.  Next week we may have an interesting situation in the Gulf of Mexico.
