A deep upper level trough will remain in place over the eastern Pacific Ocean over the next few days and this will promote a zonal (i.e., west-to-east) flow of mild air into the central Rockies. Temperatures around here will stay above normal right through the weekend, but it looks like it’ll turn cooler again early next week. Meanwhile, this atmospheric pattern will likely generate tremendous amounts of rainfall along the west coast from northern California to the Pacific Northwest over the next few days.
