Extended: Nice Week Ahead

Editor’s Note: A Peek at Pilgrimage

After a clean and clear work week, the weather pattern shifts for the weekend.

We aren’t sure if it’ll shift us into a light rainy pattern.

Recent runs of the GFS model paint a conspiracy of upper level low pressure and surface high pressure in the “right” place to send us some light showers in a Crazy Ivan (east to west) motion by Saturday night.

Specific timing on this is a fool’s errand. The temporal resolution of the data is in 6 hour chunks, so if the model sneezes it’ll move it this way or that way.

Unlike what happened this weekend, the Euro and GFS models are…kinda…on the same page. They agree rain totals will be very low.

These systems have yet to really even form. It’s folly to bet on this forecast. These are assumptions based on assumptions and run through supercomputers.

Our NWS isn’t really impressed. The one thing we all agree on is that this isn’t a “storm” system, it’s a rain system. I can’t see anyone worried about a washout or thunderstorm or anything like that. NWS thinks the better rain chance is south of us. Rain amounts are so little that, if this even happens, no one is going to say this mini-drought is over.
