251 am pdt Sat mar 25 2017

Discussion As we head farther and farther into spring, nature
finally realizes that maybe it has overreacted in its
overcompensation for the several past years of drought and is
allowing longer periods of relief between the periods of hosing.

Generally light showers will continue to taper off through the
day. A weak upper level ridge will build over the region, dropping
off the showers, but onshore flow will continue to bring in
clouds and keep the area cool. However, at least it won't be
pouring rain through the weekend, at least until the next system
comes in Sunday and that's something nice isn't it? If you like to
be wet then happiness arrives again Sunday with yet another
system moving in on the left exit region of a 120 kt jet. This
will bring increased winds ahead of the front in the shasta and
illinois valleys, but they should stay below advisory strength
withonly weak to moderate gradients. 700 mb winds become more
westerly as the bulk of the moisture moves in, and this flow
pattern will still bring increased precipitation to the mt shasta
area, but not as much as if the flow was more and stronger
southerly. A cold air mass moves in behind the front Sunday
afternoon with 500 mb temps of around -27c moving in Sunday
afternoon into the evening. With a high of 54 this means that
there should be enough instability to bring a slight chance of
showers as several strong vort axises move through and the GFS is
showing li's of below -1 over portions of the east side Sunday
afternoon. Showers continue through Monday morning as a deep
upper level trough moves through before tapering off Monday
afternoon as an upper level right once again builds over the
area. This will bring a break in the action Tuesday before the
next hosing arrives Wednesday. Sven

Aviation 25/06z TAF cycle... MostlyVFR conditions exist this
evening with some MVFR ceilings at the coast and near mount shasta
where recent snowfall is contributing to fog formation. Continued
vfr with patchy MVFR conditions and mountain obscuration are
expected tonight, with a slight chance of ifr conditions in
locations that clear out (like lmt) where high humidity values could
lead to low ceiling or fog formation. Any MVFR or ifr conditions in
the morning should improve toVFR by late morning or early afternoon
as low level moisture decreases. Sk

Marine Updated 200 pm pdt Friday 24 march 2017... Seas will
remain steep into Saturday afternoon due to a combination of
moderate westerly swell and fresh short period southwest swell. Seas
will be highest in the outer waters and near CAPE blanco with seas
just a foot or two below advisory criteria in the near shore waters.

Improvement will be brief with the next front likely to produce
advisory winds late Saturday night then arrive early Sunday morning
with another round of very steep seas and possible gales. We have
issued a gale watch with winds rising as early as mid morning
Sunday. /fb

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
