A Late Post

April 13, 2007

I’ve been a bit negligent this week with the posts.  It must be the lack of overall pattern change.  I much prefer  swings from dry to wet weather.  This constant parade of weather systems isn’t my favorite, especially since I’d like to get outside a bit more.
Speaking of this weather pattern, no model shows any dramatic change over the next 7-10 days.  Looks like April will end up wet and cool.  One trough after another drops down into the Northwest, bringing shots of rain and mountain snow.  They also bring surges of cold air well into the interior of the West, keeping the normal spring warmup at bay.
As of Friday evening, models show a brief break Sunday and early Monday, but the next system is quickly moving inland Monday evening, so I had to push rain up into Monday’s forecast.  Stay dry and warm this weekend…Mark
