Weather for Washington Cascades

Updated 1-2-2013
Extended forecast models are suggesting that we have a weak ridge of high pressure in place through 1-15-2013 and this pattern we can expect to have slightly below normal mountain snowfall. Also temperatures will be sligthly below normal. Thus our snowpack which is close to 150% in many locations will remain close to that level and perhaps go close to 140% by the middle of the month. The map below (500 mb-18,000 feet), confirms this pattern with a ridge of high pressure off the West Coast.
