The mean ridge position is off the coast and will retrograde out to around 150w by Thursday. A system is going to move into British Columbia and the Pacific NW Friday.
The ridge of high pressure will be sitting off the coast keeping the storm track to our North.
High pressure is sitting off the Pacific NW coast and will shift North this weekend. High pressure will build out near 150w by Monday. That opens the storm door, but with no storms at the door.
The sunny weather continues through the weekend with highs in the 60's at the base and 50's on the mountain. The ridge will shift North by the weekend with low pressure moving into Southern CA.
We have spring like conditions this week after all of the snow last week. The weather is beautiful and the snow is in good shape.
