Strong Ridge of High Pressure to Continue to Dominate our Weather

High Pressure has moved in off the California coast. That is blocking any storms from coming into our area. It looks like this high pressure ridge is going to camp and stay put for at least the next 10 days and probably longer. I just read a post from the NWS that said they are looking for a couple of scenarios over the weekend to bring snow either in the form of a decent storm or inside slider. Folks, I just checked both the GFS and EC weather models and I see nothing in the way of significant precipitation coming our way. In addition, our expert Meteorologist Paul Huntington has hinted at the possibility of an extended dry period.

One thing we are seeing is cooler weather coming in on Sunday and lasting through the following week. That should allow ski areas to make snow and should bring our first real taste of winter.

Here is a look at the total precip forecast for the next 10 days:

The models had been hinting at a precip event for next weekend, but they have backed off of that now. Things could change between now and then, so there is always hope.

The 30-day EC weather model does bring some storms to our area on or around the 16th of December. Remember, that is a fantasy forecast at best, but we are looking for storms anywhere we can find them.

Stay Tuned ...
