Synopsis
A cold weather system will bring scattered snow showers across
the northern sierra today. Near record cold temperatures with a
possible widespread freeze early this week. Unsettled pattern
continues through the week.

Discussion
Latest radar and satellite imagery indicates the next wave of
energy coming down on the backside of an upper level trough. High
resolution guidance indicates another round of showers over the
i-80 highway 50 corridor mainly through 6 am. Another inch or two
is possible over the higher elevations. After a brief break
during the day, the remaining upper energy is forecast to dive
southward Monday afternoon with another round of showers mainly
near the sierra crest. Forecast soundings indicate some afternoon
instability, which could result in some thundersnow. A quick 2 to
3 inches of snow is possible near the sierra crest Monday
afternoon with this activity.

Meanwhile, the coldest air of the winter season has begun to
impact the forecast area early this morning. Most valley locations
are near or below freezing under clear skies, a cold airmass and
light winds. This cold pattern is well supported by the naefs
ensembles as they indicate strong temperature anomalies at both
850mb and 1000mb. Therefore, widespread freeze conditions could
continue into Tuesday night with the potential for widespread
frost. The coldest temperatures are expected through Tuesday
morning. Wednesday morning lows are anticipated to be slightly
warmer as an upper wave could bring increased cloud cover.

Embedded disturbances in the upper flow will push across the area
this week, with a few inches of accumulation possible at pass
levels through early Friday. Snow levels will be around 1000-2000
feet or lower.

.Extended discussion (Friday through Monday)
another northerly shortwave trough is expected to move through the
region Thursday into Friday. Both the GFS and ECMWF are struggling
to grasp the details on this system, thus forecast confidence is
low on how widespread precipitation will be, and how much
moisture this system will have. Snow levels are expected to remain
quite low in this cold regime however, and light snow could again be
possible in the foothills.

A weak ridge will move through the region Friday into Saturday,
bringing drier weather along with another round of potentially
sub-freezing valley temperatures overnight. Another series of
storm systems will then approach the region early next week. Gfs
and ECMWF have not gotten a good handle on this pattern change, as
the GFS shows a rather wet scenario developing, and the ecmwf
flip- flopping between wet and dry solutions. For now, our
forecast is a blend of these very different solutions.

Aviation
Vfr conditions across valley TAF sites the next 24 hours.

Scattered snow showers with ifr lifr conditions will continue over
the mountains. Light overnight winds will increase to NW 5-15 kt
with local gusts to 25 kt during the day, then weaken again
tonight.

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.
