An Upper Level Low Pressure Trough

An upper level low pressure trough moving away.

An upper level low pressure trough (Shaded “U” shape) has pushed through the Pacific Northwest and is now centered over the Southwest and still moving. A frontal system pushes through Oregon. The leading edge of a high pressure ridge (Shaded “Arch” shape) is sending colder air down from Canada which is driving snow levels down. Another frontal system will slide toward us (position shown is Sunday ) increasing the rain chances. See the pattern here of frontal systems (this one shown on Tuesday) that will march through the Pacific Northwest.
