Southeast Ridge

The southeast ridge can be a semi permanent fixture within the pattern across the southeastern part of the US. While the picture below gives you one example of the orientation of the ridge it can be shifted more off short of the SE coastline or farther west toward Texas. Regardless of where its located it generally spells above normal temperatures and a lack of precipitation. The image below shows you heights at 500mb and what they would typically look like during a SE ridge event.
