For the forecast dry and stable weather for the foreseeable future, there will be some cloud coming into the area over the next few days, but the high looks to dominate with no Pacific Fronts on the way. Saturday is looking sunny for the morning into the afternoon prior to some cloud development.

Hate to use the word omega block, but look closely at the image. Not what we need!!

Nice sunset November 21, 2013.

The high is holding but there is certainly a lot going on in the Pacific. Visual image of a blocking pattern.
