So our roller coaster March continues. Were as Wednesday we experienced temps 10 – 20 degrees below normal, today those temps will be some 10 – 12 degrees above normal. This is all do to high pressure off the coast. Then those temperatures moderate back a bit on Saturday and Sunday, as the ridge pulls slowly eastward. The next set of weather makers arrives Sunday night and early next week, as a longwave trough sets up camp off the PACNW coast. Most of the moisture will be in Northern California and Oregon, but lighter amounts could filter down as far as Mono County and the Owens Valley. These systems are not particularly cold or carry much dynamics. So stay tuned for updates.
