Our ridge of high pressure is still firmly in place. However, an even larger ridge of high pressure will setup over the Northern Plains/Great Lakes and act as a pretty good blocking force. This will send Pacific storms down the coast and into our area and even further south.
Here is a look at what we can expect around around the 27th of February
As the a High Pressure ridge sets up in the North Central US, storms will be forced down the coast. With any luck, this pattern will hold well into March, however it is too early to say.
The models are hinting at a pretty good storm on the last day of February. Here is a look at the EC weather model for the 28th:
Currently, the GFS model has the initial wave being weaker, but follows this storm with several larger storms. Here is a look at March 2nd:
GFS has a complete pattern change starting at the end of the month with several, progressively stronger, storms coming in.
We will continue to watch this development and report accordingly.
