More diverse weather is expected over the next two weeks as:
1. Strong upper high develops in the short term over the far west bringing warmer then normal temps to the high country, Tuesday through Thursday.
2. An approaching Trof Friday passing through over the weekend combines with residual moisture from Hillery with the result of showers and possible thunder Saturday and possibly Sunday…
3. Warmer weather to follow…however moderate MJO now moving out of the Maritime Continent is expected to progress into the Western Pacific later next week. This is shown by CPC’s dynamic model. The enhanced mode is usually associated by a strong pacific jet carrying moisture and precipitation to the pacific northwest with increased odds of at least some light precipitation to the central and northern sierra along with colder temps mainly week 2 (Dusting of Snow). IE The calender week of October 5th. The wave pattern is usually a long wave Trof over the eastern pacific and ridge over the central US.
