Here are the local headlines as of this morning:
Tim Chuey Weather:
The jet stream shows a trough of low pressure ( “U” shaped area) swinging through the Pacific Northwest with another one following behind it. A frontal system moved through the area bringing a mixture of sunshine and wet weather. We’ll see another frontal system move in Tuesday followed by another Wednesday and Wednesday night. It’s been a long time coming, but a high pressure ridge (“arch” shape shown at the end of the jet stream movie) will build in late next week warming us up a bit so it will feel more like Spring. It’s about time. It still looks like the rain will still hang around though.
