ECMWF Weekly Charts

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.

    Several of the past gfs op runs been showing a series of wet and cool systems moving thru the end of the month, I think the 12z euro is following suit.
