Cooler Times Ahead By Mid Month?

Summer sure doesn’t appear to be letting go anytime soon as our recent 7-day outlook suggests, but there are indications that our unseasonably hot and humid regime may take a back seat to the refreshing taste of fall in about 10 days.  The big “tip of the cap” towards the cooler pattern?  The PNA, or Pacific North American pattern, shifting from negative to positive.  As shown below, both the European (top) and GFS (bottom) highlight the PNA shift to positive.
