The weather of the next few days will be cooler then Friday with a chance of some light snow showers Sunday…. Highs will cool to the mid to upper 40s at 8000 feet with lows in the low 20s Monday AM.
More importantly a couple of typhoons in the Western pacific are worth keeping an eye on. Typhoon WIPHA will be near Tokyo, Japan, Tuesday afternoon and then interacts with the baroclinic boundary just before becoming Extra Tropical by Wednesday. It looks like this TS has the potential to constructively phase with the westerly’s Wednesday which argues for some kind of a Trof by next weekend for the west coast. Nothing showing up in the GFS yet but the EC has something. Behind WIPHA is yet another Typhoon that may take a similar track. It may be that the following week around the 25th or 26 we will have something to write home about…….
The Models themselves become quite amplified with strong Height rises well into the Arctic over Western Canada by the end of next week. What may happen is that a belt of westerly’s may break underneath that High latitude block with a storm into at least Northern California toward the end of week 2. (Oct 25th or 26th) Will adjust as necessary…..
