      Monday April 30

      Another day or so before a long stretch of COOL DAMP wx begins. It
      could be the second half of May before pleasant conditions return to the PNW.

      Large upper level trough of cold air will drop over the PNW and usher
      in COLD rain, showers, clouds, and the risk for FROST by the weekend.
      Mountain snow, too. The rainfall will not be steady, but consistent
      enough to block most ag work. It should dry out a bit by late
      Fri/Sat, however, it will be CHILLY - if clearing takes place
      overnight this weekend, esp east of Cascades, RISK FOR FROST will be
      moderate. Point of reference: it was low-to-mid 30's in many places
      this morning; next weekend, the air will be colder. Monitor your
      local conditions closely.

      Showers will diminish a bit late Saturday thru Monday before another
      shot of cool rain hits (this time
      mainly in Washington) by late Tues, May 9. Current prog charts hint
      at a rather STORMY couple of days across the PNW May 12-14. Will that
      be the end of the chills?

      Warm break? Second half of May: positioning of the high pressure
      ridge well west/southwest of the PNW may shift just enough to the
      east to bring more seasonal, dry conditions to the PNW. Keep your
      morning beverage cup handy, and we'll work on improving the wx.

      California will get cooler wx, with showers/rain likely as far south
      as Bay Area this week. Cooler in
      southern Cal over the weekend. Middle of the U.S. will see VERY
      STORMY conditions, as our cold front passes out of the west, into the
      flatlands. Tornadoes probable.

      Kenya java up & ready, -Rufus
