ANYWAY, we must watch the trough forecasted to dig into SE US by
Wednesday for that northerly turn....
A trough would tear the system apart right apart from the effect that it has on track?
Wait I thought a trough pulls a system northward...or weakens the ridge and that allows northerly motion...??
Oh yes you are absolutely right. A trough would turn the system northward. I was going off in another direction with my post. The trough off Texas knocked Katrina down from cat 5 to cat 4 and the trough that picked Ivan up last year knocked it down from a cat 4 to minimal 3 so my point is that troughs tend to have a very negative impact on storm intensity?
At least I always thought that was true.
