No rain, thankfully

Raw from the NWS:

SYNOPSIS…DRY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TODAY. THE NEXT SYSTEM IS
EXPECTED LATE FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY. ADDITIONAL STORMS WILL
AFFECT THE AREA SUNDAY AND INTO NEXT WEEK AS THE ACTIVE WEATHER
PATTERN CONTINUES.

&&

.DISCUSSION…PARTLY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES WILL PERSIST TODAY
AHEAD OF THE NEXT FRONTAL SYSTEM. SOME AREAS OF FOG AND LOW CLOUDS
ARE BEING REPORTED IN THE INLAND VALLEYS. THIS IS EXPECTED TO
DISSIPATE IN THE MORNING HOURS.

MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT ON THE FRONTAL SYSTEM ARRIVING EARLY
SATURDAY MORNING. SNOW LEVELS WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL BE BETWEEN
3000 AND 4000 FT. QPF AMOUNTS OF 0.5-1.0 INCHES ARE EXPECTED NORTH
OF CAPE MENDOCINO…WITH LOWER AMOUNTS SOUTH OF THE CAPE. THE
MODELS ARE SHOWING A BRIEF BREAK IN THE PRECIP SATURDAY NIGHT
BEFORE THE NEXT SYSTEM ON SUNDAY. THE GFS AND ECMWF STILL DIFFER
SOME ON THE LOCATION OF THE UPPER LEVEL LOW. THE GFS HAS THE LOW
FARTHER SOUTH WHICH WOULD MAKE SNOW LEVELS LOWER. CURRENTLY WENT
WITH A BLEND OF THE MODELS AND SNOW LEVELS AROUND 4000 FT. IF THE
GFS PANS OUT SNOW LEVELS WOULD BE CLOSER TO 3000 FT AND AN
ADVISORY MAY BE NEEDED. RIVERS WILL NEED TO BE WATCHED AS THIS
EVENTS GETS CLOSER. THE TWO EVENTS WILL BE VERY CLOSE TOGETHER SO
THIS MAY CREATE HYDROLOGIC CONCERNS.

MODELS ARE SHOWING ANOTHER BRIEF BREAK IN THE RAINFALL ON MONDAY
BEFORE ANOTHER SYSTEM BRINGS SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION TO THE
REGION ON TUESDAY. WITH ALL THESE SYSTEMS COMING IN QUICK
SUCCESSION THERE MAY BE HYDROLOGIC ISSUES. MKK
