Synopsis
Below normal temperatures will continue. Snow showers possible
over the mountains Saturday with additional systems next week
bringing more widespread precipitation.

Discussion
Next system off the b.C. Coast will not be impactful for norcal, a
weak, rather benign (nuisance) wx system. Mostly high clouds
expected to increase over the CWA on Sat with some lower cloud
ceilings over the mtns with isolated light snow showers flurries.

Another frosty morning expected on Sat in the SRN sac vly, delta
and NRN sjv under clear skies and strong radiational cooling,
while the timing of cloud cover for the NRN portion of the cwa
looks to be around sunrise or a little after, but still a chance
of at least patchy frost.

Dry weather on Sun will be followed by another wx system on mon.

This system will also be similar to its predecessors, cold with
relatively low qpf, and high snow ratios. (favoring the nbm
snow ratios during these colder, low wbzs goa systems.) however,
the central valley should see more rainfall than yesterday's
system. NAM bufkit forecasts around a quarter inch for sac, and
this may be the last shot of rain this month. Dts rainfall for the
month remains at zero through today, although sac exec had .01"
yesterday.

Here is the list for the driest febs for dts:
1) 0.04 in 1899
2) 0.16 in 1913
3) 0.19 in 1995
4) 0.21 in 1953
5) 0.26 in 1997 & 2013
spc plume forecasts show about 10-11 inches of snow for the mean
at blu for the Mon system. For now, our forecast is trending toward
the bufkit NAM for blu with about 8 inches, and about 15-20:1 snow
ratios for the sierra. (the "normal" slr is about 9:1.) a wide
swath of 4 to 8 inches of snow is forecast for zone 69 with
isolated 12 inch amounts near the sierra crest.

The wr us west coast ar landfall tool (probability of ivt) continues
to show a lack of moisture, albeit it is not as "bone dry" for the
next 16 days as yesterday's models. However, there remains a lack of
significant ars. What moisture there is will be spilling over the pac
ridge and basically eroding as it hits the pac NW and spreads inland
into our cwa. (one could make a weak argument that the Mon system may
have a little more moisture than what was forecast yesterday.)
march may come in as the "proverbial lion". The landfall tool shows a
weak plume in the mid latitudes on day 6 which would be mar 1st. Jhm
.Extended discussion (Tuesday through Friday)
a period of dry weather is expected behind Monday's winter storm
before unsettled conditions return. Scattered showers possible
over the northern mountains and shasta county overnight Tuesday.

Otherwise, dry weather for interior norcal Tuesday and Wednesday.

Gusty north winds are possible Tuesday behind the passage of the
upper level trough on Monday. Models bring in another winter storm
that will impact the area Wednesday night into the early weekend.

Widespread precipitation is expected with this system, though
forecast details continue to change between model runs this far
out. Currently, the heaviest precipitation is forecast for
Thursday into early Friday with periods of heavy snow impacts
possible for the sierra passes. Hec

Aviation
Vfr conditions next 24 hours. Northerly surface winds 10-15 kts
continue thru the central valley with gusts 20-25 kts through 0z
Saturday.

Sto watches warnings advisories
None.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
