Summary- We have a brief break in the wet pattern for a few days. The tendency for troughing near and west of N California continues, even as we approach the normal end of the season. Forcing for troughs occurring from the N and north-central coast and WSW-ward is from the sea surface temperature anomaly (SSTA) pattern W of north-central Calif. Forcing for troughs over SE Calif, NW Mexico and Arizona and S Great Basin may still be related to the currently weak El Niño, although the seasonal factors that affect El Niño’s influence are decreasing with the approach of summer.
