7 to 10 Day Weather- NW
The map below is the 500 mb chart (for about 19,000 feet) average position on May 30. We continue to have the pattern of a trough of low pressure off the coast which continues the same pattern of below normal temperatures and above normal precipitation for the period between May 25 to May 30 and probably longer. This will continue to leave able snowpack with many trails about 30 days or so behind normal of melting out.
