Quiet Monday

December 4, 2006

Wow…to be honest the weather is really boring this evening.  The system moving by to the north the last 12 hours or so just about killed the cold high pressure in the Columbia Basin, but it’s still there and wind in the Gorge never turned westerly.  Now it’s back to ridging overhead later tomorrow.  That allows the surface high eastside to strengthen again, bringing back the cool easterly wind.  Not much wind though until Wednesday.
Next chance for rain is Friday and long range maps definitely have a switch back to more active weather beginning this weekend.  There still seems to be some sort of split-flow, but wet either way.  Maybe just not so wild like the weather we saw in November.
No sign of arctic air or low snow levels in the next 10 days for you snow lovers…Mark
