A ridge of high pressure is beginning to build off the Pacific coast and will cut off the moisture flow that brought yesterday’s snowfall. It is expected to be a short lived though, bringing quiet weather until Sunday. Another weather system moves into the Gulf of Alaska flattening the ridge and allow an atmospheric river by the end of the weekend.

Weather forecast for today and Saturday calling for partly cloudy skies today, mostly sunny Saturday with afternoon highs around 40 today and lower 40’s tomorrow.

Sunday and Monday indicate another shift to wetter and windier conditions, but with milder daytime temperatures as well. Expect cloudy skies each day with a 50% chance of rain Sunday and a 60% chance on Monday, unseasonably warm too with afternoon high temperatures in the upper 40’s on Sunday and lower 50’s on Monday.

Back to quiet weather on Tuesday and Wednesday and slightly cooler, under partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies each day afternoon high temperatures will generally be in the mid 40’s.

A potential trough of low pressure may initiate additional precipitation chances Thursday with a 30% chance of rain with highs in the lo9wer to mid 40’s.
