A light at the end of the eastern trough?
GFS 500mb forecast for May 24
To the joy of expeditioners across the Plains, the GFS model is finally starting to show signs of losing its argument with the ECMWF model. The European model continues to be steadfast about the return of a western trough and a good observing pattern starting next week. It's still too early to get too overly excited, but the signs so far have been encouraging.
Based on the current outlook, this probability table charts the chance of our trip starting on a particular date:
