I’ll do a summary of the storm late this evening between shows, but for now I’ve got the 4 weekly maps from last night’s run of the ECMWF. Still ridgy along the West Coast or just offshore through the period. That sure doesn’t mean DRY through mid-April, but it means most likely we’ll AVERAGE warmer and drier than normal.
Week 4, this goes through April 12th.
So no change right? Well the 12z ECMWF today looks a little different to me. On the last image (Day 15, March 30th), lower than normal heights would imply cool and showery over the West Coast:
Hard to tell if it’s a transient pattern for just a few days or if the model is changing the big picture.
