AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Eureka CA 439 AM PST Tue Dec 10 2019

SYNOPSIS. A weak front will bring light rain to Northwest California this afternoon and this evening, followed by another brief period of drier weather for part of Wednesday. An extended period of wet weather will follow, with on and off light to moderate rain from Wednesday night through Friday or Saturday.

DISCUSSION. It has been a dry and mild but mostly cloudy night for northwest California. Low clouds have been fairly extensive along the coast and through most valley areas. However, these clouds are temporarily scattering and may allow for some partial dim sunshine before more clouds increase by the late morning hours. Expect a dry morning for most of our area, before our brief respite from this wet December comes to an end.

A weak front and associated upper trough is approaching from the west, and we are already seeing some specks of low reflectivity showing up offshore on KBHX radar. Models have been surprisingly consistent with this system, sending a brief shot of mainly light rain across northwest California mainly between this afternoon and this evening. Some light rain may reach parts of the coast as early as midday. Rainfall amounts will generally range from a tenth to to a few tenths of an inch, but a few orographically- favored locations like the King Range and the mountains of eastern Del Norte may reach up to a half inch. Snow levels will be at or above 5500 feet.

In the wake of this front, some scattered showers will linger through the overnight hours, and even into early Wednesday morning in select spots. Most of the area though should expect a dry morning on Wednesday before the next system makes it's presence felt in northwest California. Would not totally discount the idea of some brief dim sunshine early in the day, but similar to Tuesday, it should be limited and short-lived before clouds increase and thicken once again. Models have been trending a little faster with the next shot of rain, and would expect at least some spotty light rain to move into Humboldt and Del Norte counties by the afternoon hours on Wednesday.

Light to moderate rain will then expand across our region Wednesday night into Thursday as a fairly strong westerly Pacific jet takes aim, between a strong upper-low over the Gulf of Alaska and a flattening upper ridge off the southern California coast. IVT values will not be particularly impressive, but will be maximized as vectors orient perpendicularly to the coast. A number of impulses will pass through the zonal flow, enhancing the coverage and intensity of the rain at times. The precipitation will gradually become more showery heading into Friday as somewhat cooler, drier, and more unstable air begins to filter in from the north. Total rainfall amounts from Wednesday night through Friday night look to range from a half inch to two inches north of Mendocino county. Lighter amounts will be found to the south, with locally a few inches possible in the mountains of interior Del Norte County. Aside from increased southerly breezes mainly across the ridges, winds will be a non- issue with this period of wet weather.

Snow levels will begin to fall below 5000 feet late Friday, and may approach 3000 feet across northern portions of our area over the weekend. One last weak system projected to pass by over the weekend may result in some snow across the higher mountain passes, but amounts at this point look fairly minor. The consensus of ensemble and deterministic models point toward a progressive ridge giving us a period of dry weather from Sunday into early next week, but the pattern continues to look modestly wet after that. /AAD

AVIATION. IFR ceilings have scattered across Northwestern California overnight as a front approaches the coast early this morning. MVFR ceilings should develop and lower through the first half of today, with rain and IFR ceilings along the coast as early as this afternoon as the front moves onshore. Associated rain showers should pass by late tonight, however ceilings will likely remain after the frontal passage, as another front is looking to move across the region tomorrow and Thursday.

MARINE. Southerlies strengthen today as a front approaches from the west. These look to increase to marginal SCY levels in the outers this afternoon, generating short period southerly seas around 6 ft at 6 seconds. Meanwhile, a W swell is expected to fill in late today , for combined seas of 9 to 11 ft by early this afternoon across the outer waters.

Southerly winds drop below advisory levels Wednesday morning but remain moderate before possibly accelerating back to advisory levels again with another frontal passage Wednesday night and Thursday. A significant WNW swell still looks on track to steamroll the North Coast late this week, with models consistently showing the peak Thursday night of around 16 ft at 18 seconds, before slowly decaying through the weekend.
