Synopsis Cool weather will persist through Friday as a cold
air mass from the gulf of alaska drops south before translating
eastward into the great basin tonight. A few showers will linger
today and then wind down on Friday. High pressure will rebuild
this weekend leading to a warming and drying trend that will last
into the early portion of next week.

Discussion Isolated showers and low topped thunderstorms
over the coastal waters have been paralleling the coastline
through the night. The upper trough has been digging southwestward
which has prevented the showers and storms from moving onto the
coast and over land. Models continue to indicate instability
arising from the cold air over the warmer waters through early
morning. Thus will keep isolated tstms in the waters til 8am.

The storms should end by then.

A weak trough offshore the SW oregon coast will shift eastward
later today and may produce isolated showers for del norte and far
northern humboldt counties as winds shift around to the NW after
the trough moves onshore. Most all the deterministic models have
this wave dampening out significantly today and generate no
precip. The ECMWF is the only model that still generates light
qpf. Also, the air aloft will be cold today, around -20c to
-25c. Forecast lapse rates are steep and suspect we will see a
fair amount of cumulus clouds sprouting up with the heating of the
day. A few light terrain driven showers will be possible.

Skies have been partly cloudy to clear across eastern trinity and
northern mendocino counties through the night. Temperatures were
still above 36f as of 4am, but slowly falling. Dew points have
been fairly high at these locations. The advisory may need to be
cancelled around 6am if temperatures do not fall to 36f or less.

It is interesting to note that several raws above 3000 feet have
been in the mid to upper 30s.

The threat for frost will continue tonight into early Friday
morning as the cold trough aloft heads into the great basin.

Stronger subsidence will promote greater drying tonight in the
interior valleys. It looks even colder tonight. Another frost
advisory will be necessary for eastern trinity and northern
mendocino counties. A few valley sites below 3000 feet in
central eastern trinity county may dip to 32f or less. Early
morning minimums should moderate on Saturday, however a few
valley sites may still dip into the mid to upper 30s as dew
points decrease each day and skies remain mostly clear.

High temperatures will start to trend upward this weekend as an
offshore ridge builds closer to the coast. Offshore flow this
weekend will limit coastal stratus and fog development. So coastal
areas will see warming as well. Sea breezes in the afternoon
should keep coastal temps in the mid 60s to lower 70s. Even with
warmer air over the region this weekend, early mornings will be
very fall like and a tad chilly especially across the interior
valleys. The warm up will likely peak around Mon or Tue as the
mid level ridge axis transitions across the forecast area. The
models are starting to latch onto upstream shortwave energy that
will likely buck up against the ridge around mid next week. These
shortwaves may not be sufficient to break the ridge down, but
should generate occasional high clouds and perhaps an increase in
coastal stratus.

Aviation An upper level trough moving over the area this morning.

This is keeping the atmosphere mixed well enough to keep fog from
forming along the coast. Some fog and stratus has likely formed in
some of the northern interior valleys. This fog is expected to lift,
but mid level clouds are expected to return early in the afternoon
in the north. MainlyVFR conditions are expected along the coast.

Tonight fog is possible again in the northern inland areas, but
offshore flow is expected to keep the coast mainly clear. Mkk

Marine The northerly swell continues to slowly diminish this
morning and is currently around 9 feet at 11 seconds. This will
continue to slowly diminish through the weekend. Northerly winds of
5 to 15 kt are currently in impacting the waters. These will persist
through Friday morning. Friday the upper level trough pushes off to
the east and high pressure starts to build into the area. This will
increase northerly winds and steep short period seas through the
weekend and into early next week. Winds will peak near gale force
and steep seas will peak around 11 feet.

Tuesday into Wednesday another shortwave will approach the area and
this is expected to break up the pressure gradient and diminish the
winds and seas. Models are in general agreement on this, although
the ECMWF is a bit slower than the gfs. Generally sided with the
ecmwf and a slower solution. The seas will diminish as well as the
waves are mainly wind driven. Mkk
