AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EUREKA CA
411 AM PDT SUN SEP 25 2011

.SYNOPSIS…A COLD FRONT WILL SWING THROUGH TODAY BRINGING LIGHT
RAIN TO THE REGION. WARMER AND DRIER CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED FOR
MUCH OF THE UPCOMING WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION…COLD FRONT ARRIVED QUICKER THAN ORIGINALLY ANTICIPATED.
AS OF 4 AM…THE FRONT IS RIGHT ALONG THE NORTH COAST…WITH THE
MAIN PRECIP BAND STRETCHING NE-SW ACROSS THE CWA. A SHORTWAVE
COMING AROUND THE BASE OF THE TROUGH LOOKS LIKE ITS ENHANCING THE
SOUTHERN END OF THE FRONT…WHICH MAY END UP GIVING AREAS FURTHER
SOUTH (MENDOCINO CO) A LITTLE MORE QPF THAN EXPECTED. THE FRONT
WILL BE SLOW TO MAKE EASTWARD PROGRESS FOR A FEW HOURS UNTIL THE
UPPER TROUGH CATCHES UP. THE MAIN BRUNT OF THE -RA DONE BY MID-
MORNING…THEN JUST A FEW RESIDUAL SHOWERS UNTIL THE UPPER LEVEL
TROUGH AXIS SWINGS THROUGH LATER THIS AFTERNOON. PARTIAL CLEARING
SHOULD OCCUR LATER IN THE DAY AND OVERNIGHT AS HIGH PRESSURE MOVES
IN BEHIND THE FRONT. A MOIST BOUNDARY LAYER WILL SET THE STAGE FOR
POSSIBLE FOG DEVELOPMENT FOR EARLY MON. ANOTHER STORM WELL TO OUR
NORTH WILL DRAG A COLD FRONT ACROSS THE PACNW MON INTO EARLY TUE.
THE TAIL END OF THIS FRONT MAY DROP AS FAR SOUTH AS THE OR/CA
BORDER WITH A FEW LIGHT -SHRA POSSIBLE. HEIGHTS WILL BE ON THE
INCREASE FROM THE SW AS A RIDGE TO OUR SOUTH RE-STRENGTHENS. A
WARMING TREND IS IN STORE FOR THE INTERIOR FOR MUCH OF THE
UPCOMING WEEK UNDER THE RIDGE. MODELS ARE SHOWING A TROUGH
DEEPENING WEST OF 130W BY WEEKS END. THE EVOLUTION OF THIS TROUGH
IS STILL VERY MUCH IN DOUBT AS WE HAD INTO NEXT WEEKEND…SO FOR
NOW WE HAVE STUCK CLOSE TO CLIMATOLOGY UNTIL A CLEARER PICTURE
DEVELOPS. JCA
