For the forecast, the system bringing welcome rain to the area yesterday has been replaced by yet another high pressure aloft, with a low level Northerly flow. Sunny skies are back for as long as another week. This system will build over the Pacific Northwest through the weekend with warmer temperatures. The pattern as of now looks like it will continue into next week with gradual cooling by Thursday. There could be a change on Friday with an upper trough developing in the Pacific.
