AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Eureka CA 235 PM PST Sun Jan 16 2022

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will ensure that dry weather will prevail across northwest California for the vast majority of the time through next weekend. Cool mornings with areas of valley fog will be followed by mild and mainly sunny afternoons accompanied by light or calm winds through Monday, but more coastal clouds are expected Tuesday, along with some drizzle.

DISCUSSION. Our weather will continue to be very quiet for the remainder of the holiday weekend, and overall through next weekend. Upper-level low pressure off the California coast to our south continues to circulate some high clouds northward up to near Cape Mendocino, limiting fog through most of our southern valleys. The clearer skies are being supported by a thermal trough that has shifted off our coast, keeping winds very light or even calm most of the day today into Monday across northwest California as well. Some offshore stratus may threaten the coast later tonight into Monday morning, but high-resolution model guidance suggests that most of that will stay offshore until late Monday afternoon or Monday evening. The low-level flow will tend more onshore Monday night into Tuesday as the thermal trough weakens and gives way to high pressure offshore, allowing for more extensive marine layer stratus for most of the coast Tuesday morning. Additionally, our predominant upper- level ridge will temporarily give way to a passing shortwave trough and weakening cold front on Tuesday. Most guidance does not suggest much rainfall, but there looks to be extensive low clouds at the very least for much of western Humboldt and Del Norte through Tuesday Night, and would expect at least some patchy drizzle with that, especially around Del Norte County Tuesday afternoon or evening.

Upper-level ridging will rebuild from the eastern Pacific across northern California and the Pacific Northwest Wednesday, promoting more dry weather, mild temperatures, and sunny skies. All guidance continues to indicate another shortwave will pass by on Thursday, but will lack low- level moisture and forcing for any precipitation this far south. Both upper-level and surface high pressure will strengthen and amplify northward even across British Columbia from Friday through the weekend, allowing for warming temperatures and keeping the entire West Coast completely dry. That high may begin to give way at some point next week, but mainly dry and mild weather will likely last at least through mid-week. There is still a solid signal in most longer range ensemble guidance that our weather pattern may shift to a cooler and wetter one for the last couple of days of the month, if not by February. /AAD

AVIATION. SKC was generally reported across Northwest California overnight. Around Midday, plenty of upper middle clouds and CI/CS, associated with an oscillating upper low centered off the Central California Coast, was advecting northward. Afternoon Vis Sat Picture showed some marine clouds mainly along the southern Humboldt Coast . with scattered strands briefly infiltrating ACV. Haze has been widely observed along the North Coast with VIS frequently dipping into MVFR. Low clouds around the Cape continued to drift northward; and patchy marine cloud were drifting slowly toward the shore. Therefore will introduce stratus into the Coastal TAFS in tonight. UKI and other inland valleys will be veiled with higher clouds, so don't expect restricting VIS/CIGS at UKI's terminal tonight. /TA


MARINE. Lingering strong currents from yesterday's tsunami continue to be possible this afternoon, although if still present will continue to weaken overnight. Light to gentle winds will generally persist through the middle of next week. A mid- period westerly swell will linger through much of the forecast period.
