Bottom line, our deflector shield of high pressure parked over the Pacific coast remains operational. This anomalous ridge on the left coast coupled with a deep digging trough of low pressure over the Midwest will keep the north flow pouring down on the Rockies and Crested Butte today, and tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after…

Have you ever seen Edvard Munch’s painting The Scream? Well that’s what the atmosphere over the Pacific looks like right now.
