More Nuisance Weather On The Way This Week….Leading To A Fair Mild Weekend
Wednesday December 8, 2010

Quick update this morning….
It will be pretty breezy in town and windy up on the hill today through Friday morning. Periods 0f Snow and Rain showers are expected beginning late today…then through Friday morning with unsettled weather continuing through Friday night. Highs will be in the 40s and lows in the 20s and 30s. The snow level will remain high….at or above 8000 feet.
Expect a fair weekend with an especially nice Sunday. Highs will climb into the upper 50s in Mammoth. Next storm…”about” the middle of next week.
As a note….A very strong high latitude blocking pattern persists through Sunday with ridges over Greenland/Iceland and over the Western Aleutians. This is keeping up strong negative AO and NAO values and locking in a deep anomalous Trof over the eastern portions of the US and the Eastern Pacific. This will certainly test the strength of the upper jet coming off Asia for a hopeful pattern change here in California. However, it is always possible that the block may too strong to break down.
More details to follow in the coming days……………
