Beautiful Weather......


Warm weather again today and then the ridge moves away from the coast and allows some of the colder air to move back in starting tomorrow. A cold front Tuesday night will bring temps that will be in the 20's on the mountain Wednesday and 30's in the Village. Then we see normal temps with highs in the 40's as we go into the weekend.

Could see another shot of colder air this weekend with as another storm drops down to our East. The ridge is far enough off the coast for the next week that we don't have really warm air, but close enough that we still have the storms being pushed to our North. The amount of cold air pouring into the country and the trough North of Hawaii have the ridge locked in place for at least another week.

Still watching the MJO as it continues to move into the Western Pacific region. This should manipulate our pattern and strengthen the Pacific Jetstream. I didn't really need to wait for the NWS discussion today on the MJO because it just says what we have already been talking about. The MJO is now in the Western Pacific heading East and the jetstream is strengthening. That should mean that we begin to see some stronger storms hit CA next week but the models do not show that yet. Hopefully we should see the models change over the next few days. Stay tuned and keep the snow dances going. BA
