Upper Trof now making its way on-shore with Cold Front and Gradient ahead…. Some Light Showers possible this afternoon and evening. Main effect of upper trof is wind with wind advisories going into effect at 11:00am today Saturday with gusts to 55mph in town. It will remain windy through most of the evening….. High temps today in the mid 50s and upper 40s Sunday. Lows in the 20s tonight and upper teens by Monday at Sunrise.
Short wave ridging will push in over a rather chilly morning Monday. Temperatures will moderate back up into the 60s by mid-week. There will be lots of clouds mid-week as well as a temporary zonal flow on Tuesday setting up to the north. So partly cloudy skies can be expected Tuesday and Wednesday. By Thursday AM a more amplified pattern begins to develop with southwest flow over California and ridging downstream over the Rockies. It will be a little breezy Thursday but a little warmer as well. Then on All Hallows Eve, the first significant storm makes its way to the coast. Winds slowly ramp up during the day and become strong by Friday night. Precipitation begins “Base upon the GFS timing” late Saturday morning with Saturday afternoon and evening the main shot. It will be showery Saturday night and cold.
1st guess for snowfall amounts……6 to 12 inches next weekend (Saturday-Sunday) over the crest and 3 to 6 inches at 8K. At this distance in time…. No doubt that there will be changes both to the timing and amounts….. Happy Halloween……. (:^D
