Not much new to chat about….
Upper Anti-Cyclone off the Southern Ca/Northern Baja coast to prevail into Friday with general upper ridging continuing through the weekend. There is a weak subtropical low that will get absorbed by the upper flow and come through So-Cal Saturday bringing some high clouds to Mammoth. The upper cut off out at 140w connects well with the idea of rebuilding the upper ridge over the west coast for the 16th into the 18th….so above normal temps to continue well into the next week.
A strong short wave approaching 160w on the night of the 16th should be deep enough to dislodge the upper cut off at 140W and lift it through Northern Ca/pacific northwest late on the 18th or 19th. That should bring some breeze, clouds and cooler weather to Mammoth later next week.
The long wave upper ridge position still remains over the far west and so any approaching short wave should weaken as it moves through the west coast through the end of next week. Overall……warmer then normal temps should continue for the high country UFN……..
