area forecast discussion
national weather service sacramento ca
900 pm pdt Wed mar 29 2017

Synopsis
An approaching upper level disturbance will bring light rain for the
valley and light snow for elevations higher than 4000 feet. Gusty
north winds are likely Thursday and Friday. Seasonably dry
weather anticipated for Saturday with chances for light rain in
the sierra Sunday.

Discussion
A weak weather system is moving into parts of northern california
this evening. Some scattered light showers exist at this time
north of about chico. The low will deepen over the area late
tonight and by 8 am the trough axis will be over the sierra
nevada. Only some light showers will persist after then over the
western slopes but will continue to diminish throughout the day.

Snow levels start to drop late tonight and Thursday morning. A
couple of inches of snow may accumulation near major pass levels
with up to about 4 inches over the peaks. Rainfall amounts within
the valley will be under a tenth of an inch and some areas may not
see any rainfall.

Northerly winds will increase behind the front during the morning
hours in the valley. Winds will increase to mainly between 15 and
25 mph with gusts between 25 to 35 mph. Locally there could be
some stronger winds. By evening the showers will have moved out of
the forecast area and winds will start to decrease but will likely
remain breezy into the evening hours.

Previous discussion (today through Saturday)
The upper level ridge over the eastern pacific is beginning to break
down as an upper level trough approaches from the northwest.

Satellite and radar imagery shows increasing clouds and some areas
of precipitation moving into the region across the northern
mountains and northern sacramento valley.

Forecast concerns this period include some light rain for the valley
and foothills with light snow for elevations higher than 4000 feet
starting tonight through Thursday night/Friday morning, and gusty
north winds on Friday. Model forecasts are in good agreement and
indicate the shortwave trough quickly moving through northern
california, which will start late tonight and last through Friday.

Little impacts are expected from the precipitation with only 1 to 2
inches of snow for the mountains and some wet roadways. A stronger
mid to lower level jet will be present across the area Friday, which
could translate to gusty north winds between 30 and 35 mph for the
valley and upwards of 45 mph for the higher terrain. Gusts will
start to diminish Friday evening.

Another upper level ridge will begin to build across the region and
will allow for dry seasonal weather to return with temperatures
between 5 and 10 degrees above normal.

.Extended discussion (Sunday through Wednesday)
the extended period will be somewhat unsettled with a couple
weather systems expected to move through the area. A shortwave
will deepen as it moves over the northwest us on Sunday, bringing
light precipitation to the norcal mountains Sunday evening
through the overnight hours. Temperatures will lower slightly by
Monday, and we could see a gusty northern wind event behind the
trough. Ridging builds again for the early part of the week with
temperatures remaining around 5 degrees warmer than normal. A
larger upper level trough looks to approach the pacific northwest
by the end of the extended period, bringing a wetter storm system
into the area beginning Wednesday evening.

Hec

Aviation
MainlyVFR conditions. A brief weather system will bring scattered
-shra through tomorrow morning and possible MVFR conditions to
taf sites after 11z tomorrow. Winds increasing to sustained
greater than 10-15 kt by 12z with gusts up to 20-25 kt by 18z.

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.
