High pressure is sitting off the Pacific NW coast and will shift North this weekend. High pressure will build out near 150w by Monday. That opens the storm door, but with no storms at the door. Sunny skies and temperatures in the 50's on the mountain and 60's at the base will continue this weekend for pass holder appreciation weekend.
High pressure will build towards the CA coast next week as storms finally reach the West Coast. That should keep the storms to our North into the Pacific NW. The GFS forecast model on every run up until the 6z run this morning had a system coming into Northern CA Tue-Wed and again Fri-Sat next week. It is now showing the same as the other forecast models in keeping the precip just to our North.
These will be cold storms hitting the Pacific NW so we will cool down back into the 40's on the mountain and 50's at the base by Tuesday or Wednesday into next weekend. It is still possible that the systems coming slightly further South and we get some light precip, but right now at best it looks like clouds only.
The active pattern looks like it may continue for the Pacific NW in the long-range. The jet stream looks to stay far enough North to keep us out of the precip. We will have to watch and see if any storms dig further South.
