Between Wednesday night and the weekend, no big storms are likely. Two weak systems will move through the Pacific Northwest bringing a bit of rain and mountain snow to western Washington, one later tomorrow night and to start Friday and another late Saturday and Saturday night.
From eastern Oregon on south through all of California, Nevada and Arizona, it will be completely dry right through Sunday. The first chance of any precipitation would not be until Sunday night or Monday in southernmost California and southwestern Arizona. Even that is not certain as this low could go too far offshore then south to bring anything at all to much of Southern California.
