Weather Update/Sunny Tuesday

A sunny Tuesday? Looks like it.

Raw from the NWS in Eureka:

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EUREKA CA
344 AM PDT MON APR 18 2011

.SYNOPSIS…SHOWERS WILL DIMINISH TODAY…REPLACED BY CLEARING
SKIES AND BREEZY CONDITIONS ALONG THE COAST. DRY WEATHER IS
EXPECTED TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY BEFORE ANOTHER DISTURBANCE BRINGS
MORE RAIN ON WEDNESDAY.

&&

.DISCUSSION…ZONAL FLOW CONTINUES TO BRING WET WEATHER TO
NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA THIS MORNING. RADAR SHOWS SHOWERS MOVING FROM
WEST TO EAST WITH SOME POCKETS OF HEAVIER RAIN EMBEDDED WITHIN
THESE SHOWERS. SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THE WORST OF THE RAINS
HAVE PASSED AND DRIER CONDITIONS ARE STARTING TO WORK INTO THE
AREA. SO SHOWERS WILL DIMINISH FROM WEST TO EAST THIS MORNING,
THOUGH A FEW ISOLATED SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE OVER EASTERN MENDOCINO
AND TRINITY COUNTIES THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON AS THE DISTURBANCE
ASSOCIATED WITH THEM SLOWLY MOVES INLAND. EXPECT CLEARING SKIES
ACROSS THE AREA WITH BREEZY CONDITIONS ALONG THE COAST AS THE
PRESSURE GRADIENT TIGHTENS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. HOWEVER,
THE BREEZY CONDITIONS WILL BE SHORT LIVED AS WINDS WILL EASE
TONIGHT AS THE PRESSURE GRADIENT WEAKENS. THE MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES
TONIGHT MAY LEAD TO FOG FORMATION ALONG THE COAST AND IN THE
INLAND VALLEYS. TEMPERATURES IN THE INTERIOR ARE BORDERLINE FOR
FROST ADVISORIES, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING WINDS MAY HELP KEEP
TEMPERATURES UP THE FIRST HALF OF THE NIGHT. THE DAY CREW WILL
NEED TO TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT THIS, BUT RIGHT NOW CONFIDENCE IS
LOW. REGARDING FOG, ANY THAT DOES FORM IS EXPECTED TO BURN OFF ON
TUESDAY, WHICH WILL HOPEFULLY SET THE STAGE FOR A MOSTLY SUNNY DAY
WITH WARMER TEMPERATURES. MOSTLY ZONAL FLOW WILL CONTINUE FOR THE
REGION AND ANOTHER DISTURBANCE IS EXPECTED TO BRING MORE RAIN ON
WEDNESDAY. RAISED POPS DURING THIS TIME FRAME TO REFLECT THIS.
RAIN CHANCES WILL CONTINUE UNTIL THE END OF THE WEEK. STROZ
