Quiet pattern this week but a colder pattern sets in next week
The jetstream pattern this week remains split with the cold stuck to the north and storms to the south leaving us with a fairly quiet week ahead.
This will begin to change next week as the overall hemispheric pattern shifts to allow a colder air mass to move south and a warmer air mass to slide up the west coast. Temperatures by next Monday may not get out of the teens for highs with overnight low dropping below zero. As far as any major snow storm it doesn't look too promising. We'll get a few clippers systems moving in from the northwest this weekend which could bring a few snow showers but snowfall looks to remain below average. The fact that we haven't received much snow may play to our favor, however, with the cold next week. Even though arctic air will be in place next week it may not get as cold as it cold if we had half a foot of snow on the ground.
