|There has been some fun autumn surf around. Conditions will be erratic this week, so check your flags.|
Currently it looks like the system will impact us in the very early morning hours of Thursday, until about 10AM. Clouds will replace fog early Wednesday, and there will be a chance we could get pockets of light showers passing through later in the day. Of course they will be more likely to our north, along the west facing coast in along the coastal ridge lines. By evening, more widespread showers will fill in from the north. I suspect that the evening commute in the North Bay might be wet, but dry in the South Bay. But by Thursday morning, showers will likely be at least as far south as Monterey. Both days will remain in the mid 60s. Mid day should see clearing with most of the showers dissipated, or shifted northeast by night fall. And get this, Friday will likely be sunny and warming back into the upper 60s. Maybe even 70F. All told we are looking at just a few tenths of an inch in Santa Cruz, a quarter inch in Marin, and a half inch or more north of Point Reyes. The Tahoe region could a half foot along the peaks to the north, and a few inches to the south.
Saturday looks like Friday. Another system tries to impact the north state y Sunday morning. Will keep an eye on this one to see if any moisture splits off and heads south. Charts are still looking wet starting around the 19th/20th, with some systems centered south of us. Gonna keep an eye on this one as well. So check back about rain later this week, and perhaps the start of winter next week. That would be fun, eh?
