AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Eureka CA 258 PM PDT Sat Sep 19 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry weather and seasonably warm temperatures will return today and last through much of next week before the next chance of rain arrives mid to late week.

DISCUSSION. A pleasant, mostly sunny day has unfolded as zonal flow developed in the wake of a passing trough. Dewpoints today remain elevated at lower levels with another day feeling somewhat humid outside. A drier air mass will briefly work in over the next couple of days. Some warming will continue this weekend with 850 mb temps climbing into the mid to upper teens Celsius by Sunday afternoon. On Monday, the pattern begins to shift as a weak shortwave trough approaches. This disturbance should be mostly non-impactful other than dropping temperatures by a few degrees compared to Sunday, and possibly generating some patchy drizzle along the coast Monday night. This will be the first bit of energy that will be rotating in off a parent deepening trough to the north along the NEPAC. An associated front will approach the area overnight Wednesday ahead of the deepening trough. This will bring the first shot of light showers for northern Humboldt to Del Norte. Any light precip may be confined to Del Norte county.

Deterministic and ensemble guidance have been struggling to resolve the amplitude of ridging that will be south of trough as it attempts to deepen Wednesday night, or as late as Friday. Ensemble guidance favors higher 500 mb heights and a lower amplitude trough as of now, with GFS as more of an outlier. This outcome will greatly effect how much and where rainfall is seen. QPF could potentially be on the lighter side and restricted from northern Humboldt to Del Norte counties. There is however good agreement on broad southwest flow beginning Wednesday to return the moist airmass, with a connection to anomalously high precipitable water values with this system. If the trough were to shift more favorably, there would be opportunity for some productive rain showers. Expecting continued variablilty in forecast solutions in the short term. /JW

AVIATION. Low clouds have mostly cleared the coast and interior mountains this afternoon. However, gusty north-northwest winds have developed, and are expected to persist through about sunset this evening. Otherwise, a weak offshore wind regime is forecast to develop in the the vicinity of KCEC tonight which may aid in precluding the development of ceiling/visibility restrictions. Farther south at KACV, a period of late night IFR conditions will be possible, though confidence is not high due to the potential for light drainage flow emanating from the interior.

JMG

MARINE. North winds gusting from 20 to 30 kt are expected tonight through Sunday over the outer waters. Those winds will support the inherited small craft advisory. Winds are then forecast to weaken by Tuesday, with the strongest west-southwesterlies being confined to the Oregon waters through most of the week. Otherwise, model guidance shows a large northwesterly swell spreading from the Gulf of Alaska toward the coastal waters of northwest California during Thursday.
