Above normal temperatures will continue through tomorrow Wednesday with breezy weather starting Wednesday afternoon and then through Friday. The upper pattern over the pacific appears to be progressive with a series of low pressure systems headed for the west coast the next two weeks. Thus the idea of anymore heat waves in our future is not likely until after the Summer Solstice. This is well supported by the Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO) and the ensembles.
The first trof mid week will spread gusty winds into our region with a strong zephyr Wednesday afternoon into a good part of that evening. More wind is expected Thursday and Friday. A good 10 to 15 degrees of cooling is expected between today Tuesday and the following Saturday with highs in the upper 60s by Saturday. Lows will one again dip into the 30s this weekend.
This is a dry pattern and so no rain or snow is expected. The weekend trof will kick out late Sunday, with Monday a bit warmer before another trof approaches Tuesday into Wednesday that following week. That system appears to be deeper and cooler, bringing more wind…cooling and the chance of some light precipitation or ???
Note: The 3rd week of June is notorious for bringing our last hard freeze and possible snowfall, between the 15th and the 22nd.
