Here’s a look at the upper level jet stream later this month.

When the jet streams are west to east with very little up and down movement, it’s known as a zonal pattern and usually results in a stretch of calm weather with minor swings in temperature.

An amplified pattern like the image on the bottom shows large troughs and large ridges and usually results in a more progressive and active pattern with stormy weather and large temperature swings.

Best I can tell, the next rain chance might not arrive until around Saturday, February 5th.
