Juanuary '09 Weather Thread

Well, we are just a day or two out from where the "experts" will start to offer long range forecasts. Long range computer models, experience, and seasonal considerations will dictate.

What we want is zonal west to east flow for fair weather. North winds mean cold, south winds mean possible wet storm.

Right now from what I can see on the satellite loops looks anything but zonal. A rather large (amplified) ridge is building in the Pacific from Hawaii to SE Alaska

An intense and large area of low pressure is deepening is the north Pacific behind this ridge.

So I guess we will watch the ridge over the next week to see if it wins and pushes the storm track to the north, is broken down, or surrenders and pushes east.

Weather, schmeather

Heavens to Hades, gents. What's all this weather fuss? We are men, right? O wait, you have been there and I have not.

Well, I will probably be so butt-*** cold, with stove up knees, wrists, and fingers that I just won't give a hoot. I know one thing, no matter how cold, how sore, or how hungover, when that line gets tight, everything is alright.

Keep a happy thought (and some warm coffee/brandy).

Sunny and about 65 degrees would be okay with me.

That ridge is still out there, creeping a little towards the east.

The low pressure on the other side is quite impressive. Enormous and cold. Nearly as big as the Continental US.

Still way too far out to predict the weather for Juanuary, but it looks like the after a cool down this weekend, the high pressure on this side of the ridge will drift over provide some fine weather through the middle of the next week.

BY SUNDAY...PACIFIC RIDGE OFF THE CALIFORNIA COAST BEGINS TO STRENGTHEN TO AN IMPRESSIVE 592 DM...BEFORE IT BEGINS SLOWLY MIGRATING TO THE EAST. THIS MEANS CONTINUED DRY AND ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES THROUGH NEXT WEEK.
