NWS: Wednesday will be dry

On Wednesday after you get your McKinleyville Press, read it and make a mental note to support its advertisers, you can go for a walk or ride your bicycle. It’s going to be dry, according the the National Weather Service in Eureka.

Here’s this morning’s weather “discussion” from the NWS:

SYNOPSIS…LIGHT RAIN WILL TAPER OFF TODAY…FOLLOWED BY A DRY
DAY ON WEDNESDAY. ANOTHER SYSTEM ARRIVES EARLY THURSDAY BRINGING
MORE RAIN AND WIND TO NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA. ADDITIONAL STORMS ARE
EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND AS THE ACTIVE PATTERN CONTINUES.

.UPDATE…
UPDATED POP AND QPF AMOUNTS FOR AREAS NORTH OF EUREKA. LIGHT TO
MODERATE RAIN CONTINUES TO FALL AT KCEC. EXPECT THIS WILL CONTINUE
THROUGH MOST OF THE DAY WITH THE FRONT STALLING OUT OVER THEM. SO
I INCREASED POPS AND QPF.

&&

PREV DISCUSSION…ISSUED 324 AM PST TUE MAR 8 2011

.DISCUSSION…VERY FEW CHANGES NEEDED TO THE GOING FCST. A
CONSISTENT MODEL SUITE CONTINUES TO SHOW MULTIPLE SYSTEMS MOVING
THROUGH FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK.

WARM FRONT JUST OFF THE COAST AT THE TIME OF THIS WRITING WITH
PLENTY OF LIGHT RAIN/DRIZZLE AND FOG. SNOW LEVELS BASED OFF NSSL
DATA ARE RUNNING AROUND 3000 FT EARLY THIS MORNING…BUT BASED ON
CURRENT OBS…FEEL THE SNOW LEVELS ARE CLOSER TO 4000 FT…AND
RISING. BASED ON THIS LATEST INFORMATION…SNOW IS NOT MUCH OF A
CONCERN SINCE IT WILL FALL ABOVE MAJOR MTN PASSES. LIGHT RAIN WILL
CONTINUE THROUGH THE MORNING HOURS…THEN TAPER OFF FROM SOUTH TO
NORTH AS THE WARM FRONT LIFTS TO THE NE. BRIEFING RIDGING MOVES IN
LATER TODAY WITH SOUTHERLY FLOW SLOWLY INCREASING.

WEDNESDAY IS EXPECTED TO BE A DRY DAY WITH FAIRLY WARM
TEMPERATURES…ALTHOUGH CLOUD COVER COULD KEEP TEMPERATURES FROM
REACHING THEIR FULL POTENTIAL. EARLY THURSDAY MODELS SHOW A COLD
FRONT BRINGING ANOTHER SHOT OF RAIN TO THE AREA. MODELS TIMING HAS
COME INTO EXCELLENT AGREEMENT LEADING TO INCREASED CONFIDENCE IN
THE TIMING OF THE PRECIP FCST DURING THIS TIME. THURSDAY NIGHT AND
FRIDAY LOOK DRY ONCE AGAIN AS A SHORTWAVE RIDGE BUILDS INTO THE
REGION. MODELS CONTINUE TO HINT AT TWO MORE SYSTEMS BRINGING
PRECIP TO THE REGION FOR THE WEEKEND. SNOW LEVELS LOOK TO REMAIN
ABOVE 3500 FT FOR BOTH THESE SYSTEMS. CONFIDENCE REMAINS LOW ON
THE EXACT TIMING OF THESE SYSTEMS FOR NEXT WEEKEND DUE TO THE
ACTIVE PATTERN WE ARE IN. JCA/MKK
