I was expecting to find a smooth front this morning, halfway to Texas. Instead, it is a jagged little pill. Part of it can still go down the mid-west, but it won't be as fast as I thought. The physics on this, though, is amazing.
At least the Arctic ice volume has crossed another line.
ps. it's quite amazing, when combined with the tropical plumes. Very weird.
pps. this is quite a study in the interior cohesiveness of the blob. The great lakes are acting as an anvil stopping it. Blob1 was 10 times smaller and fit between the lakes and the rockies. Can it bloop down and still hit Texas? That would mean that the blob splits down the middle.
