Tim Chuey Weather:
Sunshine and dry weather for your Thursday. What about the rest of the week into the weekend?
Rain: slim chance
A weak high pressure ridge (“arch” forming on the orange jet stream line) will build up just long enough to give us a series of dry days. A frontal system pushed through Oregon bringing some pretty heavy showers with it and now high pressure at the surface (represented by “H”) is combining with the upper air ridge to clear us out for some sunshine. The question is when will it fade another upper level low (“U” shape on jet stream line) set up off the coast to bring back the rain.
