Synopsis A colder and drier air mass will develop over the
region tonight through Saturday as high pressure builds across the
area. A front will approach during the late weekend into early
next week, and will aid in moderate rain and strong winds Sunday
night and Monday. Wet and unsettled weather will likely continue
through the middle of next week.

Discussion Friday afternoon satellite imagery showed an upper
trough moving east across the northern rockies, and a ridge
building over the west coast. Surface high pressure was
strengthening in between these two features, and was aiding in dry
stable conditions over nwrn ca. This regime is expected to favor
relatively cold over night lows. Thus, frost advisories have been
maintained for much of the immediate coast, and freeze warnings
for the interior.

A pattern change is forecast to take place late this weekend into
early next week as an upper ridge gradually amplifies over the
wrn CONUS and a positive tilt longwave trough becomes positioned
from roughly the gulf of alaska southwest toward hawaii. As this
occurs, model guidance shows an anonymously moist tropical airmass
becoming entrained within the warm conveyor belt of the trough,
with this airmass subsequently spreading northeastward toward the
west coast of the united states.

This large-scale evolution could potentially favor one or more
heavy rain events during the next week... Though uncertainty in
timing and magnitude is large due to mesoscale variability. At
this time, model guidance is in general agreement with the first
round of rain occurring over northwest ca during Sunday night-
Monday, with a second wave of rainfall occurring Tuesday. Strong
wind gusts, particularly across exposed ridges, will also be
possible with each rain event.

Aviation A weather system, over the last couple of days, moved
through the region overnight morning. Post trough passage: cold
and dry air under a building dome of high pressure filtered into
northwest california basically bringing mostlyVFR and clear skies
to the region... And to most airport airfield sites. However,
several inland valleys developed patchy and shallow fog... Enough
to drop uki into ifr this morning. Tonight tomorrow: during the
afternoon 24 hour TAF period, the main weather issue at the coast
will the possibility of frost, which will inhibit fog development.

Therefore, expect acv & cec airports to remainVFR, although
pockets of mifg may form near the coast. Inland areas will
maintainVFR conditions except across some local river valleys in
the morning. Ta

Marine Northerly winds and subsiding seas will be observed
tonight into Saturday due to the development of surface high
pressure offshore of ca. Marine conditions are forecast to become
more hazardous late Sunday into Monday as a storm system brings
increasing southerly winds to the region... With gales possible
over the northern coastal waters. Steep seas will develop due to
the strengthening winds, and then fluctuate through the work week
as additional storm systems move across the forecast area.

Eka watches warnings advisories

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.
