DETAILED SUMMARY for the week -> Updated for Wednesday, May 22... Today - High pressure ridging builds in some, with mostly sunny skies developing today, along with warmer temperatures. Isolated afternoon thunderstorms are possible (mainly on the peaks), as is the usual daily forecast in the spring and summer. An even stronger low pressure system develops across the northwest US, and this one looks quite unseasonably cold.
Thursday through Sunday - High pressure ridging builds in stronger from the south, in response to another unseasonably cold low pressure system sitting across the northwest US. Due to a south-southwest wind flow overhead, we expect a conditionally unstable atmosphere (the condition being certain -trigger- temperatures, daytime high temps) with enough moisture for mostly isolated thunderstorms and showers each afternoon and early evening, after warmer and mostly sunny days.CM
