I just thought I would try something different today in the way of looking at the coming weather from this weekend through next week.
Below is a simplistic look at what to expect. There are two main highlights. The first will be the storm moving into the Northwest late Saturday and Saturday night and progressing east and south. The second highlight is that much of central and Southern California and the rest of the Southwest will have seven days of dry weather ahead with the only rain in the rest of California happening early on. In fact, if our models are right Southern California will not have any chance of rain before sometime during the week of March 17.

The storm track will shift back to the western U.S. through the weekend allowing several systems to spread heavy rain and snow.
Recent heavy rain and snow has helped with the drought situation in California. What does next week have in store?
Relentless heavy rain will bring life-threatening conditions to California over the weekend and next week.
There will be several chances for rain across California through early next week with the last storm bringing cold air and snow with it.
Heavy rain soaked California at the end of last week and caused flooding and mudslides near the coast.
Soaking rain will target California through the end of the week and will raise the risk for flooding in some areas.
Cold air already in place will bring ice and snow problems to the I-5 corridor Thursday into Friday as a winter storm moves through.
