Perhaps few will read this or care about a weather system hitting the West Coast in June...it is unusual though

Attached Image

...had to open a thread so some could observe the obvious 'jet streak' which is darting quickly into the back of the first wave of energy that is now reaching the coast...if you watch carefully...an arrow shaped upper signature flies out of the LP in the GOA and is sending upper air (jet energy) reinforcements into the back side of "second' larger front that is still offshore...this should increase uplift and augment rainfall...esp. along the immediate coastline as the front reaches the coastal mountain ranges of California and Oregon...

...the 24hr (12Z Thurs) OPC Pacific 500mb forecast:

...this shows the elongated trough in the upper atmosphere...and the uplift of the front as makes way inland...

...the 48hr OPC surface:

...this shows the "trophiness" sticking around as the lows do the "Fujiwhara" dance... huh.gif
...before moving the whole trough into the CONUS by the weekend...

A wet late week into the weekend brought in another series of unusually wet and windy storms into the West...rainfall is not a necessarily 'normal' weather pattern for April in California...it is usually just the tail end of fronts that push into Washington State and British Columbia as the jet (usually dry.gif ) moves north in Spring...

Here is the next moisture rich storm moving into the picture...with a band of sub-tropical clouds all the way to Hawaii...
Attached Image

...and the 48hr OPC surface map shows the first front pulling through California on Wednesday morning...
with a stronger 'second wave' arriving shortly there after to feast on the residual moisture...
Attached Image

...and the OPC 96hr 500mb map shows 'clear sailing' for the jet to pump energy into the West at least into the weekend... wink.gif
Attached Image

...will the records continue to fall out West...? ...and will this greatly effect the rest of the CONUS...?

Low pressure swirling off the west coast will apparently linger for days bringing wave after wave of rain and winds into the West...

48hr OPC agrees

and OPC 96hr says :

and with a flattened ridge more energy is gearing up to the West...

Jet stream bringing in another a series of systems..
Attached Image

Rain along California coast and into Oregon Thu./Fri. Mountain snow in Cascades and Sierras could be plentiful with cold air in place...
Attached Image

OPC has jet pointed right at Ore./Cal. border
Attached Image

Unusual that so many 'waves' are at or below 40o latitude...seems to be some kind of parade...
Attached Image

as things get sorted out the jet stays directly at same latitude according to OPC 96hr

Attached Image

Too many 'features' come into play in the next 4-5 days to be sure of the 96hr OPC map...
Attached Image

We have already had a 'wet' October and November in California...and this looks nothing like an El Nino or La Nina pattern to me

The massive unpredictability of a La Nada (near normal) ENSO pattern...means great 'volatility' to idee

Howdy to the rest of the CONUS...here comes a whale of an extratropical storm riding the jet into the West

Attached Image

Wow! this is a very vigorous low pressure coming out of the GOA, and if the track and intensity of this storm remain on track, this will end up as a big game changer as far as pushing some moisture and intense weather into the CONUS.

Attached Image

OPC has this as a 982mb low as it approaches the West Coast...(with a lot of 'upstream' energy lurking to advance into the region next week)

Attached Image

Disclaimer: idee's attempt at analysis is not intended as a forecast nor a 'handicapping' guide... dry.gif

It appears that the brunt of the storm will strike on/near the CA/OR border as the associated low remains just offshore (with some of the energy veering north to be absorbed/or recycled as the new 'wave' of energy from the Pacific comes in...

Impressions are of a vigorous storm coming in Friday night into Saturday with continued rain on Sunday.
A brief respite Monday will be followed by a perhaps more northerly focused 'wave' on Tues/Wed...
