7 to 10 day weather trends for the NW
The map below is the 500 mb chart (for about 19,000 feet) for Saturday June 11. Notice the strong trough of low pressure off the Washington Coast and this frankly looks more like a winter type of pattern. This is the general pattern that we will have for some of June, cool and wet. However for this weekend Saturday June 4 through Monday June 6 we should have a period of some warm temperatures and dry conditions. For Seattle for the month of May precipitation was 180% of normal and temperatures were 3.5 F degrees below normal. Looks like June will follow this pattern.
