The euro at hr 240 has cold air all the way to mexico....and it appears 2 very strong high pressures together.....but How do we get these strong NE winds across the midwest into mexico??? Am I missing some upper level feature?

I am not really sure what you question, but it looks like a typical 'cyclonic' flow from the polar region. Meaning a high (over Great Basin) in your maps is pulling down cold air from the north. So the jet stream flows up and over the ridge in the Rockies is forced up north into Canada and swirls back down in a anti-cyclonic direction...i.e: winds come from Eastern Canada south and west down over the Central and into the Southwest parts of the CONUS. This is what happened last week when a front pushed hard freezes all the way into Oklahoma and Texas.

At least this is my untrained take on what you are looking at with these maps.... wink.gif

Yup, thats what I was asking.....btw this set up showed back up on euro yesterday at hr 120.....almost identical.....I guess I was just not thinking of other factors for winds....I was thinking low pressure counter-clockwise....high pressure clockwise....
thanks for your explaination!
