We’re staying dry (again) as we go into midweek.
High pressure continues to hold firm with weaker systems having to ride over top of it brushing the Northwest with mainly clouds and an isolated shower or two. And unfortunately for skiers/boarders, no new snow either. Folks in the valleys will continue to see foggy days with highs in the low 40s, while the coast will get back to partly cloudy by Wednesday and Thursday.
By Friday, another storm tries to move through the ridge and will likely bring a few isolated showers and very little acumulating snow in the mountains. Otherwise, we’re staying dry as we roll into the Christmas weekend. The next chance for rain will be late Sunday night and then next week things appear (now anyway) to turn back to a wetter pattern. We move back into zonal flow which means more west to east jetstream and also pulling the storms that are being ripped apart right now, back over the Northwest. That may mean we can slowly start to catch up on our rain and snow deficit so far for December.
Have a great week!
