Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Sacramento CA 118 PM PST Fri Nov 27 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry conditions with mild afternoons and cool nights are forecast through the weekend. Only opportunity for any sort of light precipitation will be on Monday, and that will be limited to far northern California. Dry, mild, and possibly wind conditions are expected around the middle part of next week.

DISCUSSION. Aside a thin band of passing high clouds, mostly clear conditions prevail over central and northern California this afternoon. These mostly clear skies have provided GOES-West satellite with excellent viewing conditions of the finer details over the Golden State. For example, visible imagery shows the snowpack in the higher elevations of the Sierra and Cascades. Unfortunately, not much (if any) new snow will fall on the present snowpack as we wrap up November and enter the first month of meteorological winter. More on that in the extended discussion .

The locally strong winds from earlier in the Sierra and adjacent foothills have been subsiding since daybreak. This is a result of the relaxing surface pressure gradients: Reno to Sacramento has dropped from 8.3 mb to 5.6 mb within the last 6 hours. We'll continue to see these gradients relax as the upper level low in the Great Basin continues to dive south away from our area. Despite the mostly clear skies, most Valley locations are running several degrees cooler compared to 24 hours ago. Highs this afternoon will warm to the upper 50s to middle 60s, equating to near or slightly above late November climatological normals.

The dry airmass and light winds will promote efficient radiational cooling with many Valley communities approaching the freezing mark overnight and into Saturday morning. Some rural areas in Sacramento and San Joaquin Counties absent of the urban heat island influence may see sunrise temperatures in the upper 20s.

Low-amplitude ridge sets up over northern California and the Pacific Northwest on Saturday, allowing for dry and mild temperatures to continue again tomorrow. Similar conditions are forecast again on Sunday.

Upper level trough approaches the Pacific Northwest on Monday. While far northwest California will likely see some minor rain/snow amounts, the Sacramento Valley and northern Sierra will very likely remain dry. Temperatures will remain fairly steady day-to-day with most Valley locations in the 60s. // Rowe

EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Tuesday THROUGH Friday). Upper level trough digs into the Great Basin on Tuesday. This will result in a renewed opportunity of offshore surface pressure gradients, though the strength will largely depend on the placement and orientation of the digging trough. Fuel-moisture levels will need to be closely monitored as they will continue to trend drier through early next week. Extended forecast through next week looks bleak for precipitation chances as the majority of both European and American ensemble members remain completely dry. // Rowe

AVIATION. VFR conditions next 24 hours. Winds generally below 10 kts at TAF sites.

STO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

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.
