Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Sacramento CA 202 PM PST Tue Nov 24 2020

SYNOPSIS. Light showers possible over the mountains tonight and Wednesday, otherwise dry weather expected into next week. Mild days and cool nights will continue with breezy north to east winds on Thursday.

DISCUSSION. Ridging is apparent over California today as clear skies are seen via visible satellite across the state. Mild afternoon highs are expected with Valley temperatures topping out in the mid to upper 60s, with highs in the 40s and low 50s in the mountains. Locally gusty winds this morning have decreased early this afternoon.

Late tonight a trough begins to dig into the PacNW and Northern California which will bring some light precipitation mainly to higher elevations. Precipitation amounts will generally be anywhere from a trace up to 0.15 inches with the most QPF located in Shasta and western Plumas County. A stray light shower at lower elevations cannot be ruled out. As for snowfall, snow levels are generally anywhere from 4500-5500 feet and total snowfall accumulation is generally less than an inch.

As this trough moves out of the area Thursday, pressure gradients tighten and north to east winds are expected across the Valley and over the Sierra and southern Cascades as early as Thursday morning. Gusts will be anywhere from 25-35 mph, locally higher. Winds decrease in the Valley Thursday evening, with stronger winds continuing in the mountains until Friday morning.

Lighter winds, dry weather, and near average daytime high temperatures are expected Friday into the weekend. Lows both Friday and Saturday night will reach near or slightly below freezing in the Valley and any sensitive plants not impacted by the last freeze may be damaged this time around.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Saturday THROUGH Tuesday). Upper ridging progged over NorCal this weekend resulting in dry weather with above normal high temperatures. Frontal system moves into the Pacific Northwest Monday, but enough ridging remains over NorCal to keep the associated precipitation north of the CWA. Deterministic solutions vary on the track of this low on Tuesday, but have kept a dry forecast due to ensemble guidance.

AVIATION. Generally VFR conditions expected. Light Showers possible 9-13 UTC Northern Sacramento Valley. Local MVFR possible San Joaquin Valley 12-15 UTC due to BR. Winds generally under 12 kts.

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.
