A low pressure system will squeeze our persistent ridge of high pressure to the west and effect our weather for at least the next week and probably longer. The ridge of high pressure which can dominate our weather will be moved out of the picture allowing storms to come into our area from both the East and the West.
The following two images show the current conditions and conditions in about 4 days. Notice the high pressure ridge getting moved to the west:
This will usher in a change to our weather that will last into the foreseeable future.
Snow levels for these storms will vary from 8,000 to 10,000 feet. The blocking ridge of high pressure will allow moisture to be pulled into our area from the Gulf of Mexico ... again.
Just goes to show, Mother Nature will do as she damn well pleases.
Stay Tuned ...
