Tim Chuey Weather:
A chance of getting wet today, but decreasing chances tonight. Look for plenty of sunshine Friday lasting into the weekend.
An upper level trough of low pressure (Shaded “U” shape) is sliding through the Pacific Northwest spreading showers . A new high pressure ridge (Shaded “Arch” shape) dries us out Friday through the weekend and then a new trough takes over early next week. A frontal system looks like it will get stuck as a stationary front well north of us next week and move in midweek.
