Synopsis A trough will generate one last round of showers today
before high pressure builds this afternoon bringing drier weather
conditions through Tuesday.

Discussion A shortwave trough embedded in northwesterly flow
will continue to generate periods of showers through this
morning. Mid level lapse rates remain modest as temperatures
through the entire column cool. Even though freezing levels will
fall to around 3000-3500 feet, the potential for hail this morning
appears to be quite low with very meager CAPE (weak updrafts) and
low equilubrium levels, up to 12kft. Thus will remove the isolated
hail from the forecast for this morning.

Upper level ridging and stable air will build toward the coast
this afternoon bringing an end to the shower activity by this
evening. Cooler air will settle over the area tonight and frost
will be a distinct possibility for interior mendocino county.

Stronger subsidence and light offshore winds should provide steady
drying through early Tuesday. A frost advisory will need to be
considered with temperatures expected to fall to 34f-36f in some
of the valleys of northern mendocino. Except for morning frost,
Tuesday is shaping up to be a fine day after the morning low
clouds and fog burn off in the interior valleys.

Dry conditions should last through the morning hours on Wednesday
as surface ridging remains over the area. Another front will
approach the west coast Wed afternoon. The models have slowed
down the warm front slightly, but still have the cold front
moving through Wednesday night when most of the rain is expected.

Ridging aloft and robust northerly flow at the surface will
build after the passage of a mid level shortwave trough on thu.

With brisk northerly winds offshore, coastal areas will probably
get fairly windy each afternoon, especially on Friday. Dry weather
will likely hold into the weekend, however the GFS and ecmwf
continue to forecast the ridge to flatten out toward the end of
the weekend in response to another shortwave trough. Some rain or
showers will certainly be possible Sun or mon. For now will keep
the forecast dry with only a slight chance of rain. We may need to
beef up the rain chances if the models continue on their present
course.

Aviation Vfr to MVFR conditions and light winds to calm
conditions will continue at kcec, kacv and kuki through the early
morning. The lower conditions will due to reduced ceilings and/or
visibilities as showers move across the region at times this
morning.VFR conditions and light winds will prevail at kcec, kacv
and kuki late this morning through tonight as a high pressure
ridge builds across the region.

Marine Light to moderate northwesterly winds will prevail
across the waters today as a weak high pressure ridge builds
across the region. An elevated westerly swell will propagate
across the waters today through Wednesday. Therefore small craft
advisories will be in effect across all the waters today through
Wednesday morning. A weak cold front will move across the waters
Wednesday night and the winds will increase. The winds and seas
will be higher across the outer waters and in or near any showers.

Small craft advisories are likely across the outer waters
Thursday and Friday due to increasing winds.

Eka watches/warnings/advisories
Ca... None.

Northwest california coastal waters... Small craft advisory from 9
am this morning to 9 am pdt Wednesday for pzz450-470-475. Small
craft advisory from 3 pm this afternoon to 9 am pdt Wednesday for

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.
