|It is spring in Santa Cruz.|
The GFS and the Canadian forecast about the same amount of water, but with different timing and duration. About a quarter of inch locally, with one plus inches in the Sierra and northern quarter of the state. Let's start with the GFS. This morning it brings light rain to Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay for the day on Friday, clearing out late. Nothing heavy, and likely sporadic, but wet none the less. The storm is much more concentrated to the north and east, just like this last one. A foot of snow for the crest. Get you last powder day on. The Canadian, on the other hand, has the rain holding off until maybe mid day Friday, with showers filling in for Saturday morning. It also brings another light amount Sunday afternoon. Okay, so maybe the Canadian has a little more water, but ultimately, it is more prolonged, lighter showers. This scenario could drop more significant water in the hills and mountains. So, the swing vote is the Euro. I rarely look toward the old continent for guidance, but I did this morning. She agrees with her old colony. Rain Friday, clearing for the weekend. Now, I know you weekend loving folks would love to see some fair weather and sunshine. But, I have my fingers crossed for rain. And snow.
Splendid Monday and Tuesday. And for the coming week. Expect some mid to upper 70s. More on that and fine tuning the weekend, so check back.
