High Latitude Blocking Pattern to Promote Split Flow Over the Conus Next Week…..Nothing to get all that excited about the next week….

A cooling trend is still underway through Saturday the 5th of May with breezy weather. Nighttime lows will dip below freezing but no hard freeze expected…..Upper 20s in town this weekend. Highs in the low 50s… as mentioned before, this should help set the snow up in the mornings for a few days….for you skiers and boarders.
Then warm a up occurs Monday through Thursday and daytime highs will rise into the 60s mid-week with lows again above Freezing….
Otherwise the maps are a mess! Models show an eastern pacific ridge amplifying from the pacific northwest into western Canada while a weak cutoff low forms over Central Ca then drifts southward over northern Baja. This makes sence with a blocky pattern over the high latts of Canada. (Split flow)
Good Time for a long Siesta…… Vios Con Dios…..
See you on the 14th of May…………………..:-)
