Synopsis Damp, drizzly conditions will continue in del norte,
humboldt and trinity counties through the morning, with gradual
improvement later in the afternoon. However, a few weak
thunderstorms will be possible in far eastern trinity county this
afternoon. A warming and drying trend can be expected Sunday
through mid week, with a slight cooling trend and slight chances
for showers late in the week.

Discussion Widespread light rain and drizzle is ongoing across
much of the area early Friday morning, particularly across the
hills of humboldt and del norte counties where orographic lift is
maximized, as a weak cold front passes through the region. This
will generally continue through approximately late morning before
significant drying aloft reduces precipitation in all but the
most favorably oriented mountain ranges. By late morning and early
afternoon, the cooler temperatures aloft associated with the core
of the passing upper low will begin to move into northern
california, and the combination of this along with modest surface
heating may be enough to generate some weak instability. This will
be maximized to the east of trinity county for the most part, but
it's not impossible that a few weak thunderstorms could develop
very near the eastern boundary of trinity county by early
afternoon. In any case, any storms that manage to develop here
will be weak and relatively fast moving toward the southeast.

Meanwhile, northerly winds are expected to increase across the
coastal waters throughout the day Friday as the pressure gradient
strengthens between deepening surface low pressure across the
sacramento valley and building high pressure across the eastern
pacific. These northerlies will hug the coast closely, resulting
in gusty conditions very near the water and along prominent
coastal ridges and headlands. Sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph
with gusts to 40 or 45 mph will be possible in these areas between
mid afternoon and this evening before diminishing overnight.

By Sunday, a building ridge of high pressure will kick off a
prolonged warming and drying trend that will continue through at
least mid week. While coastal temperatures may warm slightly into
the low 60s by Monday and Tuesday, the more significant warming
will take place across the interior where valleys will likely
climb well into the 80s. No precipitation is expected either,
likely until Wednesday afternoon at the very earliest.

Slightly cooler temperatures and slight chances for showers are
likely to return Wednesday through the end of the week as the
upper level ridge weakens and allows for weak shortwave troughs to
move through the area. Brc

Aviation Marine stratus is generally expected to persist through
today along the coast and inland to the coastal hills. Ceilings are
expected to lift later this morning and afternoon, allowing mostly
ifr to MVFR conditions to prevail along the coast. Gusty north to
northwest are forecast to develop along the coast this morning and
are expected to persist through late this evening. Marine stratus
could be impacted by these gusty winds, allowing for some clearing
along the coast later today. Low clouds will be possible across
interior valleys through late this morning, withVFR conditions
expected to prevail by mid-morning.

Marine North to northwest winds will continue to increase this
morning, with gusts to gale force likely from mid-morning until
early tonight across all coastal zones. Gale force gusts will still
be possible across the outer zones through early Sunday morning.

Steep, short-period seas will develop as a result of these gusty
northerlies. These steep short-period seas will range from 7 to 11
feet at 7 to 9 seconds. Winds will remain elevated through early
Sunday and are forecast to gradually weaken through early next week,
though winds will remain around 15 to 25 knots across the outer
waters through mid-week. Winds are then forecast to strengthen to
near gale force again late next week across the outer waters.

Otherwise, a west to northwest swell will wane this weekend. Brc
