Chase vacationers should give the models a couple more days. Some of the ensemble members are more bullish than the op models. While the Euro is off and on, its ensembles have a large minority more bullish than the op. Majority still follow the op, but it could change. Now I hate cherry picking members; I only mention because it is large 35-45% minority I am watching. When I write more bullish members, I mainly refer to slower and/or farther south 500/200 mb troughs. I am also looking at surface low and/or lee trough placements. While too early to look at the LLJ, I do seek consistent. As we get inside 7 days it is harder to wish-cast a major deepening of the trough. However one can expect op model changes for two or three more days, and of course details will keep changing until the event(s). If all else fails save that chase vacation for the Great American Eclipse. From what I hear a total solar eclipse will make it all better.
