We picked up another 4 inches in the past 24 hours bringing the storm total to 10 inches up top!
We will stay in a cold Northwesterly flow this weekend into next week. There is some moisture moving South from Oregon today so we could see a flake or two. A low pressure system rotates down the CA coast Sunday. Still looks too far West for any precip but we could see an increase in clouds. Another disturbance moves down from the North Monday and could bring some light scattered snow showers.
Cold air looks to get reinforced Thursday into Friday as cold air pushes down from the North. The Canadian and GFS forecast models have a system dropping down off the CA coast. The European model shows a system dropping down over CA with a chance for more light snow showers.
A new pattern looks to setup by next weekend. The mean ridge that shifted up over Alaska this week looks like it will shift West and a trough and large area of low pressure will setup in the Gulf of Alaska. That will setup an active storm track into Western Canada and the Pacific NW. The question will be if that helps to pump a ridge off the CA coast and all the precip stays to our North, or will the low be far enough South and East to flatten the ridge and bring the precip down into CA. The GFS forecast model currently shows the former, and the European model runs show the latter. The European has shown a big storm next weekend for several runs now. No confidence in what will happen until we get closer and see more model consensus.
