A quiet period in the realm of severe weather is looming on the horizon.
The image above shows The dates on the right display the date the forecast was made on, and the dates on the bottom legend indicate when this forecast is valid for. Warmer colors indicate the higher potential for severe weather. For instance, if I want to know the severe weather potential for July 20th on a forecast made on June 5th, I go up the legend on the left to find June 5th, then scroll on the corresponding horizontal line to find the July 20th box. We have been going through an active period of severe weather, which was predicted earlier by the CFS model, as those red and yellow boxes on the left side of this chart show. However, long range forecasts in the top right corner show a distinct drop-off in colored boxes, indicating a quieter weather pattern.
