What I'd like to know is: How this long train of precip develops over Georgia; sits there and grows; sucking energy and moisture from the Gulf: for two days!? before moving over the Northeast? Why does it stall there?
A blocking pattern way out west holds things up. An Omega block sets up over the Eastern Pacific--high pressure ridging flanked by low pressure on both sides. Upstream features can hold the Midwest trough back--that's why it's slow to progress. Things should start moving late next week/weekend to let that cold air drain into us eventually.
