The weather pattern along the West coast from Washington state to California is very dull. In general, there is a ridge of high pressure at 500 mb in control.
This high is providing warm temperatures away from the immediate beaches but not excessively hot weather as we had in portions of Southern California late last week and over the weekend. Temperatures will be averaging above normal.
There is a broad and relatively weak, closed low well west of the southern Oregon/northern California coast. While this spins well offshore the next couple of days, it will eventually head east by Friday and the weekend. Models are in agreement on this. What they are not in agreement on is how far south the low will go. The main effect on the weather would be on how much cooler air occurs, especially in central and Southern California. Precipitation is not going to be much, though there could be a mainly afternoon shower or thundershower in a few spots over Oregon, northern California and northern Nevada. Monsoon moisture is not going to be a player.
The first day of the Eastern Pacific Tropical Season gives us the first tropical storm of the season.
this could be shaping up to be not only an early fire season but a bad one too
Coachella Music Festival temperatures are likely to be in the middle to upper 90s this weekend.
It always seems that hot weather arrives just in time for the festival and looking at the history that is mostly true.
If headed into or through any mountain areas, know ahead of time that snow levels are likely to drop to 2,000 feet in the Washington Cascades
It seems highly likely that there will be a period of very windy weather from Sunday afternoon through Monday
