Maybe a weekend storm and then again maybe not. Looking at the latest computer forecast model runs we see that the U.S. GFS and the Canadian GEM want to break down the massive ridge of high pressure along the Western U.S. Coast late this weekend into the first of next week. This would allow a potential winter storm to head towards the local area. But the European model wants no part of this. So since we are about a week away from any storm (maybe) impacting the area all we can do at this point is to speculate and hope. Its dry and getting drier!
