Quiet Week Before Changes

Category: Weather

The week ahead will feature fair skies and temperatures in the 40's on the mountain to near 50 at the base.  

By the end of the week a large trough will push near the West Coast as a large area of low pressure spins in the Northeast Pacific.  This low will pull in lot of subtropical moisture and direct it at the Pacific Northwest and Northern CA next weekend.  Right now the question is how far South will the precip push and how much will spill into the basin.  

Some of the forecast models don't push a front through and keep most of the precip just to the North with high snow levels.  Some model runs do push the front through with more precip and falling snow levels.  It is still a week or more away so we will continue to watch this over the next week.

It looks like more storms may try to push into CA around mid-month.
