AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Eureka CA 325 PM PST Sun Mar 3 2024

SYNOPSIS
Showers activity are expected continue this afternoon and wane tonight. Another system approaches Monday bringing mostly rain, along with snow in Trinity county above 2500 feet Monday afternoon and Tuesday. More precipitation is expected on Wednesday as closed low drift toward southern California. Drier weather is then forecast for the second half of the week.



DISCUSSION
Today has been another showery day across Northwest California as a cold trough remains aloft, bringing small hail along the coast and snow farther inland. A heavy shower along a line extended from Arcata to Eureka was observed late this morning, with accumulating hail impacting the highway 101 near Arcata. Snow levels rise to around 2,000 feet early this afternoon with the passing embedded shortwave trough moving through interior Norther California. Surface temperatures near the coastal areas increase to around mid 40s to low 50s, resulting in accumulating hail threat decrease along the coast. Moderate to occasional heavy snow persist over inland areas north of Cape Mendocino, while isolated showers farther south. Shower activity is forecast to weaken through the rest of the day and dwindle overnight as this trough exits to the NE, although light stray showers remain possible into Monday morning.

The upper level trough will continue to erode tonight and then finally exit the region north and east on Monday. Meanwhile, another system approaches Monday from the west, bringing mostly rain and a sharp increase in snow levels on Monday as warmer air moves over the area. However, several deterministic models continues suggesting cold air trapping occurring in Trinity county with this system, likely keeping snow levels around 2500 to 3500 ft while they rise to around 3500 to 5000 ft elsewhere. While Trinity will likely see a break in the precip tonight, the Winter Storm Warning remain in effect through Tuesday afternoon for simplicity. Elsewhere, precip is forecast to fall as light stratiform rain for all but the highest mountain peaks, and is not expected to be prolonged but not impactful. South winds may briefly gust to around 40 mph along the Redwood coast with the passage of this system's surface front late Monday night.

Deterministic models depicts the shortwave trough will evolve into a closed low off California Coast Tuesday afternoon and continue drifting southeastward toward southern California on Wednesday.
This will bring subtropical moisture toward northern California, bringing moderate rainfall and mountain snow for elevations above 4000 feet.

A highly amplified shortwave ridge essentially shuts off precip chance for Thursday into Friday with widespread numerical model ensemble member agreement. Ensembles are in increasing agreement of at least a few days of (mostly) dry weather toward mid-March.



AVIATION
A passing trough continues to bring in moisture and instability. The stronger showers have been dropping copious small hail. This threat is easing, but will generally continue at ACV into tonight, and linger at CEC into early Monday morning at CEC. Flight condition will remain mostly VFR, with dips into MVFR. As occasional showers continue, the prevailing westerly winds will turn southerly ahead of the next weather system on Monday. Light to moderate rainfall will develop Monday. Gusty southerly winds and some low level winds shear will develop Monday afternoon and into the evening. CIGS at UKI are expected to drop into IFR with movement into LIFR late tonight through late Monday morning. JJW

MARINE
Unsettled atmospheric conditions and westerly flow will continue through today but will gradually diminish on Monday. A frontal system and the associated low pressure will approach the coast on Monday resulting in southerly winds Monday and Monday night. High pressure and northerly winds will return on Tuesday and persist through the remainder of the week. Wave conditions are dominated by a persistent steep west wave that drops below 10 feet on Monday but remains steep and over 8 feet for the rest of the week. TRN
