Typhoon trough will mean business next week

Typhoon Chaba turned NE earlier today and is expected to continue in that direction past Japan.  Therefore we set the clock 6-10 days and can expect a trough that will mean business in terms of cold with staying power.  I expect that unprotected summer vegetables will also meet their demise bu next weekend.

Do the computer models agree?  The US Global Forecast System predicts a strong Nor'easter moving up the coast next Thursday.

     The ECMWF's storm system is much faster, exiting it on Wednesday evening and is not as strong.  I like its prediction of a full latitude trough much better than the GFS.
     The 2 models agree on a storm system and a trough.  We have less than a week to figure out which will be the big weather story...  It could be a double whammy!
