In the Turn

(Personal note:  On occasion the wrong set of dates, or the misspelling of a word or two happens here.  It is inexcusable but reality.  Please pardon those occasions, as similar errors can accurately be forecast to repeat.)
We are now in ’the turn’ toward much better late Spring, early Summer weather.  A giant “Yes!!” can be heard around the PNW.  
For today (Monday) and Tue, expect showers to pop-up at times, but infrequently.  The typical ‘convergence zone’ showers are likely in the Puget Sound region.  Wed looks to be the warmest day of the week, with temps jumping into the high 60s or 70s, depending on location.  Dry.  Late week, there will be another trough and associated surface Low spinning its way south off the PNW coast, but as mentioned earlier, it is not charting to move onshore, therefore, expect a few clouds at times Thu over far north WA and Vancouver Island with dry conditions elsewhere.  Mild temps.  
Friday should also remain dry, with an up-tick in an onshore flow - breezy.  Concurrently, it will be windy in the far eastern portions of WA & OR; Idaho too.  The coming weekend is trending to be dry, although a bit muggy, as a SW flow is charted.  Mountain showers possible along the eastern slopes.  We are not likely to get that ‘light show’ mentioned in the last update because the surface Low moving out of NV will track too far to the east.  
Week of Jun 20 - 24 is looking DRY, with some of the warmest temps of the year possible over the eastern basins and southern OR.  Onshore breeze may tap western valley and Puget Sound temps down a bit.  Still pleasant for strawberry picking and outdoor activity.  Models hint a yet another offshore Low pressure trough forming the last weekend of June.  Right now, though, the main impact could be onshore breeze with seasonal temps.  No rain.  We’ll take it.
Topical Tropical: we are monitoring what would become Hurricane BONNIE in the Gulf of Mexico during the last weekend of June (yes, we have Patrons in FL & NOLA).  Long-range scenarios periodically suggest a disturbance originating south of Cuba deepening and tracking into the Gulf late June.  ’Tis the season.
