Synopsis A cool dry air mass will persist across the region
today. Tonight, a front will approach northwest california
tonight into Monday resulting in the development of moderate to
heavy rain and gusty winds. Wet and unsettled weather will likely
continue through late in the week.

Discussion High pressure continues to bring cool and dry
conditions to the area this morning. Temperatures have dropped
into the mid 30s at the coast with some freezing temperatures in
the inland areas. Expanded the frost advisory out closer to the
coast in humboldt and mendocino county. The light east to
southeast winds continue to dry out the airmass.

High clouds have started to stream across the area this morning
ahead of an atmospheric river approaching the west coast. The
models have the rain moving in slightly sooner than previous
runs, with rain starting Sunday evening mainly over the higher
terrain of del norte county. Sunday night and Monday this rain
will spread across the area. The models continue to struggle with
location and amounts of the rainfall. In general the models have
trended wetter. The GFS is the wettest, the ECMWF and SREF are
much drier while the name is in the middle. The naefs ensemble
mean shows integrated vapor transport (ivt) values over 500. Opted
to trend the QPF up towards the wpc amounts which are closer to
the gfs, but still below it. If the models are consistent with
these rainfall amounts a flood watch may be needed for del norte
county for small streams. This is a weakly forced, but very moist
waa type of system and typically terrain plays a big role in these
type of situations. The south slopes and peaks will like get a
lot more rain, while the valleys and humboldt bay area may not see
a whole lot of rain. Breezy winds are expected with this system,
but at this point a wind advisory is not expected.

Early Monday there could be some snow as low as 5,000 feet in
eastern trinity county, but these are expected to rise quickly and
remain well above pass level through the week.

Monday night models show this atmospheric river drifting back to
the north. Tuesday through the end of the week models show moist
southwest flow persisting over the area. Breezy southeast winds
will persist at the surface and this may warm temperatures at the
coast. Mex guidance is showing temperatures in the 60s at kacv.

At this point it is difficult to pinpoint rainfall amounts on any
particular day, although there will likely be periods of rain
through the week. With this moist flow if there is a slightly
stronger shortwave it could bring a decent amount of rain. Mkk

Aviation Satellite imagery is currently showing high clouds
moving over the region and prior to its arrival there was some low
cloud fog showing up in some of our river valleys. The good news is
that the forecast points have been reportingVFR conditions all
night and should continue to due so until a storm system moves over
the region later tonight. Statistical guidance and bufkit data show
MVFR to ifr conditions with the passage of this system, but lifr
will not be out of the question for sites north of mendocino county.

The other concern is the threat of wind shear tonight. Models depict
roughly 20 kt of wind shear at kcec and kacv which has been added
to the tafs.

Marine Winds will continue to shift to the south today as a
storm system advances towards the pacific northwest. Near gale force
gusts are expected for the northern outer waters; however,
confidence was not high enough that frequent gale force gust would
occur to warrant a gale warning. Thus a small craft advisory was
issued instead. Other zones will experience winds just below gale
threshold thus small craft advisories were issued. Steep seas will
be generated from these winds, which combined with another fresh
northwesterly swell, will allow for a chaotic sea state. Southerly
winds and steep seas will then dominate the forecast through the
middle of the week with winds easing and seas subsiding Thursday
into Friday.
