San Juan Mountains Weather Forecast ~ Wednesday, November 22, 2017 @ 09:10

Warm/dry weather on tap for the rest of the week and into the middle of next week.  The large high pressure covering the innermountain west is forcing any potential storm system to the north. During the low snow years (some call it drought) 76/77, 80-81 and 89-90 all had similar very large high pressure (called it the Great Basin High then) systems that brought the same conditions that we’re experiencing from this La Niña year so far. Look at the map below to see how the high pressure is splitting two low pressure systems know as an Omega Block.. see the Omega sign?

It looks like there are a couple of storms lined up in the Pacific that should arrive by the end of the month hopefully bringing cooler temps and moisture.

Happy Thanksgiving
