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

...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...
