Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Saturday, May 02, 2015 This weekend into early next week we expect an upswing in mainly late day thunderstorms and showers as some upper level pockets of instability help trigger them, then low pressure across the northwest US early next week causes a more moist southwest flow aloft into the area for increased moisture early next week. The trend of an active shower and thunderstorm pattern continues through mid next week, then tapers off late next week. We may see some snow under 10,000 feet next weekend (9th-10th) as an organized Gulf of Alaska storm may push through from the west. CM please see the detail in the long range forecast below.

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 04 to 14 May, 2015 - Pacific Northwest/ Northern California/ UTAH/ COLORADO/ northern New Mexico: All next week (4th - 8th) looks unsettled across the Pacific Northwest and northern Rocky Mountains, with higher mountain snow and valley rains. Some much needed late season snow pack will develop. Cooler than average temperatures are also expected. For Tahoe through Mammoth we expect unsettled conditions to dominate next week, with winds, cooler than average temperatures, and some rain/ higher mountain snow. For Utah-Colorado-northern New Mexico, we expect an upswing in thunderstorms and showers, mostly of the daytime heating triggered variety, with some sunshine through the day, becoming less sun in the afternoon/ evening. By May 8-15 the west in general could be busy with low pressure systems, unsettled weather, wind, cooler than average temperatures, and rain/ snow, some to unusually low levels as some storms may close off and drift south, carrying unusually cold air with them. We will be watching. CM
