More Rain!

SnapshotThis 6-10 day average 500mb height forecast gives you the general idea as we head through the last 1/2 of the month….Cool & Wet.  You can click on image for a better look

A weak front and surface trough/low is passing through tonight as it heads off to the south and east.  That accounts for the absolutely annoying drizzle and low ceiling in spots.  At least we have a mild night on the way with the south wind.

Nothing too dramatic in the next 2 days…just showers and sunbreaks, not all that much in the way of precipitation in general.

Thursday-Sunday a cool upper-level trough sags south and brings quite chilly air to the region.  The new 00z GFS gives us a break from the cold showers Saturday…before a stronger system moves in Easter morning.  So obviously the holiday weekend (and start to Oregon’s Spring Break) is a bit up in the air weatherwise.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately…but just not a whole lot to talk about.  It’s clear the weather geeks are a bit bored too since some days we’ve only seen 10 comments!  Mark Nelsen
