Forecast February early 2010
The forecast for early February is for below normal precipitation and above average temperatures. The forecast map below confirms that as one can see a ridge of high pressure that is over the Northwest US at the key forecast level at 500 mb level, 18,000 feet. Also as can be seen is an area of low pressure in Southern California and this is a common theme during El Nino. As of 1-29-2010 locations in the West Cascades (Washington) have between 60 to 85 percent of normal snowpack. Another sign of an El Nino. Will the snow return?? Usually the storm track will migrate from California to Washington once the El Nino starts to weaken. The million dollar is when. Stay tuned!!!
