    I am heading off to British Columbia, Alberta, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington after Easter for 3 weeks and the weather to date has been terrible. Nothing but cloudy rainy days. Anybody care to predict when it will improve as my main focus is photography and I need sunny days. What is the setup for the jet stream to move north and clear the crappy weather away?

    To be honest, I don't think the setup is going to change much. The jetstream might move a little further north, but that's subject to the changes of long term forecasting. EC Monthly Control shows lots of cloudy days for the Northwest, so I don't think that's gonna change much. But perhaps luck will be on your side.

    I thought that was the forecast for the PNW. Always. Learn to love the fog in your photography. It can be beautiful.

    Only if you don't look for the beauty. Assuming you can see more than a couple of metres.

    I don't classify gray as beauty. But you are Legs....

    Dull is in the eye of the beholder.
