AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EUREKA CA
340 PM PDT FRI JUL 25 2014

.SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING OVER CALIFORNIA WILL RESULT IN
DRY CONDITIONS AND ABOVE NORMAL DAYTIME TEMPERATURES ACROSS
NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA THROUGH THE WEEKEND.


&&

.SHORT TERM...(THRU TUE) HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUES TO BUILD OVER
NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA BRINGING HOT TEMPERATURES TO INTERIOR AREAS AND
PLEASANT CONDITIONS TO THE COAST. THE ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES
ACROSS THE INTERIOR WILL CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS AS THE
RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BECOMES ENTRENCHED OVER THE WESTERN UNITED
STATES. BOUNDARY LAYER MOISTURE NEAR THE COAST WILL BEGIN TO RECOVER
TONIGHT ALLOWING COASTAL STRATUS TO BECOME MORE WIDESPREAD INTO
EARLY NEXT WEEK.

A SERIES OF WEAK SHORTWAVE TROUGHS WILL TRAVERSE OVER NORTHWEST
CALIFORNIA BEGINNING SUNDAY INTO NEXT WEEK BRINGING A RETURN TO
CHANCES OF THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE INTERIOR. MID-LEVEL CAPPING
STILL LOOKS TO BE TOO STRONG ON SUNDAY TO ALLOW STORMS...SO HAVE
CONTINUED THE DRY FORECAST FOR THAT DAY. OTHERWISE SLIGHT CHANCES
FOR STORMS HAVE BEEN INCLUDED IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF NORTHERN
TRINITY AND NORTHEASTERN HUMBOLDT COUNTIES MONDAY AND TUESDAY
AFTERNOONS. MOISTURE RETURN IS STILL QUESTIONABLE AND ANY CLOUD
COVER SPREADING OVER THE REGION WITHIN THE RETURN SOUTHERLY FLOW
WILL BE FACTORS IN WHETHER OR NOT STORMS FORM EARLY NEXT WEEK. THE
BEST CHANCES ARE CURRENTLY OVER THE TRINITY HORN WHERE MID LEVEL
CAPPING WILL BE WEAKEST MONDAY AND TUESDAY. ANY STORMS THAT FORM
SHOULD REMAIN RATHER WEAK AND NOTHING STRONG OR SEVERE IS ANTICIPATED
THROUGH TUESDAY. RPA

.LONG TERM (WED-FRI)...THE GFS CONTINUES TO INDICATE FAVORABLE
CONVECTIVE PARAMETERS ALONG WITH STEEP LAPSE RATES ACROSS THE
PERIPHERY OF THE NORTHERN ZONES EVERY DAY NEXT WEEK. THE BULLS-EYE
OF INSTABILITY AND MOISTURE LOOKS TO BE JUST NORTH OF THE AREA IN
SISKIYOU COUNTY AND OREGON...WITH TRINITY COUNTY AND DEL NORTE
COUNTY JUST ON THE EDGE. GFS AND ECMWF CONTINUE TO SHOW WEAK
DISTURBANCES ALOFT WHICH COULD TRIGGER CONVECTION AS WELL. THE
TIMING AND STRENGTH OF THESE SHORT-WAVES REMAIN UNCERTAIN. CONFIDENCE
IS NOT HIGH WE WILL HAVE STORMS EACH DAY DUE TO THE PRESENCE OF A
MID LEVEL STABLE LAYER WHICH MAY SUPPRESS TSTM DEVELOPMENT IN OUR
FORECAST AREA. FOR NOW...I EXPANDED THE SLIGHT CHANCE OF TSTMS
WESTWARD INTO DEL NORTE COUNTY AND INCREASED THE COVERAGE ON
WED...THU AND FRI. AS FOR TEMPS...WENT WITH THE CONSENSUS MODEL
WHICH INDICATES A SLIGHT COOLING TREND THU AND FRI. THE STRATUS AND
FOG FORECAST FOR COASTAL AREAS HAS BEEN BASED ON CLIMATOLOGY AND
PERSISTENCE. NORTH SURFACE FLOW AND HIGH BOUNDARY LAYER HUMIDITY ARE
FAIRLY GOOD INDICATORS THIS TIME OF YEAR.


&&

.AVIATION...AS OF 21Z...VFR CONDITIONS WERE REPORTED ACROSS THE AREA
WITH GUSTY WINDS ALONG THE COAST DUE TO THE INTERACTION BETWEEN A
BUILDING RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE EASTERN PACIFIC AND A
THERMAL TROUGH ACROSS THE INTERIOR. CONDITIONS WILL DETERIORATE
ALONG THE COAST THIS EVENING AND INTO THE OVERNIGHT AS BL MOISTURE
INCREASES AND THE WINDS DECREASE. IFR TO LIFR CONDITIONS ARE
EXPECTED ONCE AGAIN TONIGHT VC HUMBOLDT BAY. THINK THAT KCEC COULD
SEE SOUTHERLY RETURN FLOW LATER IN THE NIGHT AND THUS...HAVE
CONDITIONS LOWERING TO LIFR THERE AFTER 10Z. VFR WILL PREVAIL ACROSS
THE INTERIOR WITH VSBY REDUCTIONS POSSIBLE IN THE LOWER TRINITY
RIVER VALLEY DUE TO FU FROM THE SUGARBOWL FIRE BETWEEN WILLOW CREEK
AND HOOPA. STP


&&

.MARINE...TIGHT PRESSURE GRADIENT HAS BEEN SHIFTING WESTWARD AND
NORTH THROUGH TODAY AS A THERMAL TROUGH BUILDS ALONG THE COAST.
THE STRONGEST WINDS WERE MOSTLY IN THE OUTER WATERS AND NEAR PT
ST GEORGE. EXPECT SEAS TO RAMP UP SLIGHTLY TONIGHT DUE TO THE
NORTH WINDS. NORTH WINDS HOWEVER DO NOT LOOK AS STRONG
AS YESTERDAY...SO CANCELED THE GALE WARNINGS DUE TO LIMITED
COVERAGE OF GUSTS TO 35 KT. SEAS WILL REMAIN AROUND 10 FT
AT 8 SECONDS TONIGHT...SO HOISTED A WARNING FOR SEAS. NORTH WINDS DO
LOOK TO INCREASE SLIGHTLY SATURDAY AFTERNOON/EVENING...WITH BRIEF
GUSTS TO 35 KT AGAIN.

SEAS INSIDE 10NM WILL BE STEEP THROUGH THE WEEKEND...AROUND
6 TO 7 FT AT 8 TO 9 SECONDS. THIS WILL BE BORDERLINE FOR AN
ADVISORY FOR SMALL CRAFT. BUOY 14 WAS JUST OUTSIDE THE
STEEPNESS CRITERIA AT 7 FT AT 9 SECONDS...BUT THINK SEAS WILL
COME UP SLIGHTLY TONIGHT AND WILL MAINTAIN THE ADVISORY.

TREND SUN THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK IS FOR WINDS AND SEAS TO
DIMINISH. SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES FOR BOTH WINDS AND SEAS
WILL MOST LIKELY BE NECESSARY.


&&

.EKA WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
CA...NONE.
NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA COASTAL WATERS...
     SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY UNTIL 5 AM PDT SATURDAY PZZ450-455.

     HAZARDOUS SEAS WARNING UNTIL 5 AM PDT SATURDAY PZZ470.

.SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING OVER CALIFORNIA WILL RESULT IN
DRY CONDITIONS AND ABOVE NORMAL DAYTIME TEMPERATURES ACROSS
NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

&&

.SHORT TERM...(THRU MON) BUILDING HIGH PRESSURE WILL ALLOW NORTHWEST
CALIFORNIA TO CONTINUE TO WARM UNDER GENERALLY SUNNY SKIES. SOME LOW
CLOUDS AND PATCHY FOG HAVE FORMED OVERNIGHT OVER THE EEL RIVER DELTA
AND AROUND HUMBOLDT BAY...BUT GENERALLY THE CLEAR SKIES SHOULD
CONTINUE TODAY.

850 MB TEMPERATURES WILL WARM TO NEAR OR ABOVE 25C ACROSS THE
INTERIOR ALLOWING AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES TO WARM INTO THE UPPER
90S OR OVER 100 DEGREES F BY SATURDAY. TEMPERATURES ARE CURRENTLY
NOT ANTICIPATED TO APPROACH RECORDS...THOUGH THEY WILL BE SEVERAL
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. BESIDES A FEW MORNING CLOUDS AT THE
COAST...GENERALLY SUNNY SKIES WILL ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO CLIMB INTO
THE UPPER 60S AND POSSIBLY LOW 70S AT THE COAST.

AS THE UPPER RIDGE AND HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM BUILDS OVER THE AREA...A
WEAK CUT OFF LOW OFF THE CALIFORNIA COAST WILL GRADUALLY DRIFT
NORTH TOWARD NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA. THE LOW WILL DEGRADE INTO A
SHORTWAVE TROUGH AND MOVE OVER NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA SUNDAY
AFTERNOON RIDING OVER THE WEST SIDE OF THE UPPER RIDGE. SURFACE
MOISTURE RETURN WILL BE TOO SLOW TO COUPLE WITH THE SHORTWAVE
PASSAGE AND A MID TO UPPER LEVEL STABLE LAYER WILL KEEP A
CONVECTIVE CAP IN PLACE THROUGH AT LEAST MIDDAY MONDAY...NOT
ALLOWING THUNDERSTORMS TO FORM SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THUS THE
FORECAST HAS BEEN KEPT DRY THROUGH THE WEEKEND. MKN

.LONG TERM...(LATE MON-FRI) MODELS CONTINUE TO INDICATE WEAK
INSTABILITY OVER NORTHEASTERN AND EASTERN TRINITY COUNTY ON MON
AFTERNOON AND TUE. MOISTURE CONTINUES TO LOOK LIMITED WITH THE
STABLE LAYER NEAR 500MB WEAKENING BY MON AFTERNOON AND TUE. MODELS
CONTINUE TO SHOW WEAK DISTURBANCES ROTATING NORTHWARD AROUND THE
WEST SIDE OF THE RIDGE ON THESE DAYS. THE TIMING AND STRENGTH OF
THESE WAVES REMAINS UNCERTAIN. HAVE CONTINUED THE EXISTING FORECAST
OF INCREASED PRECIP CHANCES AS WELL AS TSTM COVERAGE AROUND THE HORN
OF TRINITY MON AND TUE. WED AND THU CONVECTION CHANCES REMAIN
UNCERTAIN ATTM. OTHERWISE SEASONABLY MOSTLY CLEAR AND WARM
CONDITIONS IN THE INTERIOR WITH SOME INCREASE IN STRATUS AND FOG
ALONG THE COAST LATE IN THE PERIOD.

.AVIATION...LOW CLOUDS/FOG FORMED AROUND HUMBOLDT BAY AND THE EEL
RIVER VALLEY THIS MORNING PRODUCING IFR TO LIFR CONDITIONS AT KACV
AND KFOT. VFR CONDITIONS WERE FOUND ELSEWHERE EXCEPT FOR SOME FU IN
THE LOWER TRINITY RIVER VALLEY DUE TO THE SUGARBOWL FIRE BETWEEN
WILLOW CREEK AND HOOPA. EXPECT CONDITIONS TO GRADUALLY IMPROVE TO
VFR ACROSS THE AREA TODAY WITH MODERATE TO GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS
ALONG THE COAST INTO THE EVENING. CONDITIONS SHOULD DETERIORATE TO
IFR ALONG THE COAST DURING THE LATE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT WITH VFR
ACROSS THE INTERIOR. STP

&&

.MARINE...A STRENGTHENING HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE ACROSS THE
NORTHEASTERN PACIFIC INTERACTING WITH AN INLAND THERMAL LOW HAS
TIGHTENED THE PRESSURE GRADIENT OVER THE COASTAL WATERS INCREASING
THE WINDS AND STEEP SEAS. GALE CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE OVER THE
OUTER WATERS THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING. SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES WILL

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EUREKA CA
328 PM PDT THU JUL 24 2014

.SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING OVER CALIFORNIA WILL RESULT IN
DRY CONDITIONS AND ABOVE NORMAL DAYTIME TEMPERATURES ACROSS
NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA INTO THE WEEKEND.

&&

.SHORT TERM...(THRU SUN) SLOWLY BUILDING HIGH PRESSURE WILL ALLOW
NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA TO CONTINUE TO WARM UNDER GENERALLY SUNNY
SKIES. IN FACT...FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A WHILE THERE IS NOT A SINGLE
CLOUD VISIBLE ON SATELLITE OVER THE REGION. SOME LOW CLOUDS WILL
LIKELY REFORM OVERNIGHT ALONG THE COAST AND IN SOME NORTHERN
INTERIOR VALLEYS...BUT GENERALLY THE CLEAR SKIES SHOULD CONTINUE
THROUGH FRIDAY.

850 MB TEMPERATURES WILL WARM TO NEAR OR ABOVE 25C ACROSS THE
INTERIOR ALLOWING AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES TO WARM INTO THE UPPER
90S OR OVER 100 DEGREES F BY SATURDAY. TEMPERATURES ARE CURRENTLY
NOT ANTICIPATED TO APPROACH RECORDS...THOUGH THEY WILL BE SEVERAL
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. BESIDES A FEW MORNING CLOUDS AT THE
COAST...GENERALLY SUNNY SKIES WILL ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO CLIMB INTO
THE UPPER 60S AND POSSIBLY LOW 70S.

AS AN UPPER RIDGE AND HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM BUILDS TOWARD THE
AREA...A WEAK CUT OFF LOW OFF THE CALIFORNIA COAST WILL GRADUALLY
DRIFT NORTH TOWARD NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA. THE LOW WILL DEGRADE INTO A
SHORTWAVE TROUGH AND MOVE OVER NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA SUNDAY AFTERNOON
RIDING OVER THE WEST SIDE OF THE UPPER RIDGE. AT THIS TIME THE
SURFACE MOISTURE RETURN IS ANTICIPATED TO BE TOO SLOW TO COUPLE WITH
THE SHORTWAVE PASSAGE NOT ALLOWING THUNDERSTORMS TO FORM SUNDAY
AFTERNOON OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN. ADDITIONALLY...A SIGNIFICANT CAP
AT 500-400 MB CAUSED BY SOME MID TO HIGH LEVEL MOISTURE WILL HOLD
DOWN ANY CONVECTION THAT ATTEMPTS TO FORM. THUS THE FORECAST HAS
BEEN KEPT DRY THROUGH THE WEEKEND. RPA

.LONG TERM...(MON-THU) MODELS CONTINUE TO INDICATE WEAK
INSTABILITY OVER NORTHEASTERN AND EASTERN TRINITY COUNTY ON MON
AND TUE. MOISTURE LOOKS VERY LIMITED WITH 700-500MB RH`S OF 40-50%
AROUND THE HORN. THE STABLE LAYER NEAR 500MB SEEMS TO WEAKEN
ACCORDING TO GFS ON MON AND TUE. THE MODELS HAVE BEEN INDICATING
NEBULOUS SHORT-WAVE FEATURES APPROACHING IN SOUTHERLY AND
SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT ON BOTH THESE DAYS. THE TIMING AND
STRENGTH OF THESE WAVES IS STILL VERY IFFY. I INCREASED PRECIP
CHANCES A BIT AS WELL AS TSTM COVERAGE AROUND THE HORN OF TRINITY
MON AND TUE. WED AND THU REMAIN UNCERTAIN AND THE COVERAGE MAY
NEED TO BE INCREASED IF THE MODELS CONTINUE TO TREND IN THE
DIRECTION OF BETTER STORM CHANCES. OTHERWISE SEASONABLY MOSTLY
CLEAR AND WARM CONDITIONS IN THE INTERIOR AND OCCASIONAL STRATUS
AND FOG ALONG THE COAST WILL LIKELY PREVAIL ACROSS MOST OF THE
FORECAST AREA MOST OF THE TIME THROUGH THE PERIOD.


&&

.AVIATION...ANOTHER GENERALLY VFR NIGHT IS EXPECTED WITH DRY AIR
OVER THE REGION. A FEW PATCHY AREAS OF FOG WILL BE POSSIBLE IN
NORTHERN INTERIOR VALLEYS OVERNIGHT AND ALONG THE COAST BUT ANYTHING
THAT FORMS SHOULD BE SHORT LIVED...DISSIPATING QUICKLY AFTER
SUNRISE. RPA


&&

.MARINE...NORTHERLY WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO RAMP UP THIS AFTERNOON
AND EVENING AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS TOWARD THE REGION FROM THE
WEST. WINDS WILL BE BORDERLINE FOR A GALE WARNING WITH GUSTS
TO 35 KT IN THE OUTER WATERS DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS
THROUGH SAT. NORTHERLY WINDS AND SHORT PERIOD SEAS SHOULD REMAIN
ELEVATED IN THE OUTER WATERS SUN THROUGH TUE. THE GALE WARNING
OR HAZARDOUS SEAS WARNING MAY NEED TO BE EXTENDED. INSIDE 10NM AND
NEAR SHORE WINDS HAVE BEEN GUSTY TODAY...WITH TOP GUSTS UP TO 30 KT.
WINDS INSIDE 10NM SHOULD DECREASE ON FRI AND MORE ON SAT AND SUN.
HOWEVER SEAS WILL STILL BE ROUGH WITH SHORT PERIODS.

BUOYS HAVE BEEN REPORTING SEAS OF 4-5 FT NORTH OF THE CAPE AND 5-6
FT SOUTH OF THE CAPE...WITH VERY SHORT PERIODS. SEAS WILL INCREASE
TONIGHT THROUGH FRI AS ROBUST NORTHERLY WINDS CONTINUE MOSTLY
OUTSIDE OF 10NM. IT MAY EVEN REACH 10 FT AT 8 SECONDS FOR A SHORT
TIME LATE TONIGHT INTO FRI MORNING SOUTH OF THE CAPE. A WARNING FOR
SEAS MAY BE NECESSARY. FOR NOW WILL HOLD OFF ON HOISTING A WARNING.

CDIP BUOY 244 (NORTH SPIT BUOY) WENT ADRIFT LAST NIGHT. THE COAST
GUARD HAS RETRIEVED THE BUOY AND IS TOWING IT BACK INTO HUMBOLDT BAY
THIS AFTERNOON.

145 PM PDT WED JUL 23 2014

.SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD IN BEHIND THE FRONT AND THIS
WILL BRING HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS TO INLAND LOCATIONS. THESE
CONDITIONS WILL LAST THROUGH THE WEEKEND.



&&

.SHORT TERM...(THRU SAT) A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY CONTINUES TO SAG
THROUGH NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA BRINGING SOME VERY WEAK SHOWERS TO
AREAS FROM HUMBOLDT BAY NORTHWARD. THIS FRONT WILL MOVE INLAND
THIS EVENING LEAVING THE AREA DRY THOUGH WITH SOME CLOUDS ACROSS
NORTHERN AND COASTAL AREAS.

CONDITIONS WILL CHANGE DRASTICALLY ON THURSDAY AS WARMER AND DRIER
AIR MOVES OVER THE REGION AS A HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM BUILDS INTO
CALIFORNIA FROM THE EAST. 850 MB TEMPERATURES WILL WARM
SIGNIFICANTLY...BACK OVER 25C ACROSS INTERIOR AREAS BY THIS WEEKEND.
THIS WILL ALLOW AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES TO SPIKE BACK INTO THE
UPPER 90S AND POSSIBLY OVER 100 DEGREES. SOME AFTERNOON CUMULUS OVER
THE MOUNTAINS WILL BE POSSIBLE EACH AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY...BUT
GENERALLY SUNNY SKIES ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE INTERIOR.

SOME STRATUS WILL IMPACT COASTAL AREAS WHERE BOUNDARY LAYER MOISTURE
IS GREATER...HOWEVER MODELS INDICATE SOME DECENT DRYING IN THE
MARINE LAYER BEHIND THE DEPARTING FRONT OVERNIGHT. THIS MAY ALLOW
COASTAL LOCATIONS TO REMAIN MOSTLY CLEAR THURSDAY NIGHT AND POSSIBLY
FRIDAY NIGHT WITH WEAK OFFSHORE FLOW DEVELOPING. WITH THAT
SAID...AFTERNOON NORTHERLY WINDS ARE LIKELY TO INCREASE AS THE
THERMAL TROUGH STRENGTHENS ACROSS INTERIOR CALIFORNIA WHICH SHOULD
RESTRICT HIGH TEMPERATURES TO THE 60S FOR MOST COASTAL SITES. RPA

.LONG TERM...(SUN-WED)...MODELS CONTINUE TO INDICATE A WEAK
TROUGH ALOFT OR CUT-OFF LOW FORMING TO OUR SW SUN THROUGH WED.
THIS WILL NEED TO BE WATCHED FOR ANOTHER THREAT OF TSTMS IN
TRINITY COUNTY. OTHERWISE SEASONABLY WARM CONDITIONS IN THE
INTERIOR AND OCCASIONAL STRATUS AND FOG ALONG THE COAST LOOK TO BE
NORM THROUGH THE PERIOD.


&&

.AVIATION...A LINGERING FRONTAL SYSTEM IS BRINGING SOME LOW CLOUDS
AND LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS TO NORTHERN HUMBOLDT AND DEL NORTE COUNTIES
THIS AFTERNOON. THIS FRONT WILL MOVE INLAND THIS EVENING ALLOWING
SOME DRIER AIR TO FILTER INTO THE AREA AND VFR CONDITIONS TO
DEVELOP. HOWEVER SOME STRATUS SHOULD REDEVELOP LATER TONIGHT AT THE
COAST BRINGING AT LEAST PERIODS OF MVFR OR IFR CONDITIONS. CLEARING
SHOULD BE FAST THURSDAY MORNING WITH NORTHERLY WINDS INCREASING.

INTERIOR AREAS MAY SEE SOME LOW CLOUDS OVERNIGHT IN NORTHERN
VALLEYS...BUT GENERALLY VFR WILL PREVAIL. RPA


&&

.MARINE...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD TOWARD THE REGION FROM THE WEST
TONIGHT THROUGH THU. THIS WILL TIGHTEN THE SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENT
CAUSING INCREASING NORTHERLY WINDS AND BUILDING STEEP SEAS. MODELS
CONTINUE TO INDICATE MARGINAL GALE CONDITIONS WITH GUSTS TO 35 KT
DEVELOPING LATE THU AFTERNOON THROUGH THE EVENING OVER THE OUTER
WATERS. NORTHERLY SEAS WILL MOST LIKELY INCREASE DURING THIS TIME
FRAME...PEAKING TO AROUND 12 FT AT 8 SECONDS THU NIGHT. THUS WILL
HOIST A GALE  WARNING FOR BOTH PZZ475 AND PZZ470 STARTING LATE THU
AFTERNOON AND CONTINUING IT THROUGH SAT. CONDITIONS WILL LIKELY
REMAIN ELEVATED INTO NEXT WEEK, ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE OUTER WATERS.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EUREKA CA
829 AM PDT WED JUL 23 2014

.SYNOPSIS...A WEAK FRONT WILL MOVE ONSHORE TODAY...BRINGING SOME
LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS TO THE REDWOOD COAST THIS MORNING. HIGH
PRESSURE WILL BUILD IN BEHIND THE FRONT AND THIS WILL BRING HOT
AND DRY CONDITIONS TO THE INLAND LOCATIONS...PERSISTING INTO THE
WEEKEND.


&&

.UPDATE...A WEAK FRONT CONTINUES TO MOVE THROUGH NORTHWEST
CALIFORNIA THIS MORNING BRINGING LIGHT RAIN TO DEL NORTE AND
NORTHERN HUMBOLDT COUNTIES. ACCUMULATION WILL GENERALLY BE AROUND
A TENTH OF AN INCH OR LESS...WITH ONLY A TRACE EXPECTED IN THE
HUMBOLDT BAY AREA. INCREASED POPS TO DEFINITE IN AREAS WHERE RAIN WILL
LIKELY ACCUMULATE THIS MORNING...OTHERWISE THE FORECAST REMAINS ON
TRACK AND THE PREVIOUS DISCUSSION IS INCLUDED BELOW.


&&

.PREV DISCUSSION......ISSUED AT 338 AM PDT...

DISCUSSION...A WEAK FRONT IS APPROACHING NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
THIS MORNING. 1030Z RADAR SHOWS SHOWERS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS FRONT
OFFSHORE AND APPROACHING THE COAST. THE REDWOOD COAST CAN EXPECT
SHOWERS THIS MORNING, WITH THE GREATEST THREAT BEING OVER DEL
NORTE COUNTY. QPF SHOULD BE MINIMAL, PROBABLY LESS THAN 0.1 INCHES
NEAR THE CA/OR BORDER, DECREASING FURTHER TO THE SOUTH. SHOWERS
WILL DECREASE THIS MORNING AND AFTERNOON AS THE FRONT MOVES
INLAND. HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD IN BEHIND THE FRONT AND THIS WILL
BRING HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS TO THE INLAND LOCATIONS. TOWARDS THE
END OF THE WEEK THE FOUR CORNERS RIDGE EXPANDS BACK INTO NORTHWEST
CALIFORNIA, ALLOWING INLAND TEMPERATURES TO RISE INTO THE LOW
100S. MODELS STILL SHOW A CUT-OFF LOW FORMING TO OUR SOUTHWEST
LATE THIS WEEK. HOWEVER, THEY HAVE BACKED OFF ON IT`S STRENGTH,
WHICH WOULD REDUCE OUR THUNDERSTORM THREAT. REGARDLESS, THIS WILL
CONTINUE TO BE WATCHED FOR THE NEXT THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS.

AVIATION...AN UPPER TROUGH AND ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT MOVING
ACROSS THE AREA TODAY WILL MAINTAIN MVFR/IFR CIGS THROUGH THE DAY.
AS THE COLD FRONT SLIPS ACROSS THE AREA THIS AFTERNOON, LIGHT RAIN
WILL LIKELY FALL AT AIR STRIPS ACROSS DEL NORTE AND HUMBOLDT
COUNTIES (CEC AND ACV). NO RAIN IS EXPECTED ACROSS MENDOCINO
COUNTY, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SOME POSSIBLE LIGHT DRIZZLE ALONG
THE COAST. BEHIND THE FRONT MOST AREAS SHOULD SEE SOME CLEARING
AND LIFTING CIGS ALLOWING FOR VFR. BFG

MARINE...AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH MOVING EAST ACROSS THE WEST COAST
TODAY WILL PULL A WEAK SURFACE COLD FRONT OVER THE COASTAL WATERS
THIS EVENING. WINDS WILL REMAIN LIGHT AHEAD OF THE FRONT AS THE
SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENT CONTINUES TO BE WEAK. SEAS WILL BEGIN TO
BUILD SLIGHTLY THROUGH THE DAY AS POST FRONTAL SWELL OUT RUNS THE
FRONT. BEHIND THE FRONT HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD TOWARD THE REGION
FROM THE WEST. THIS WILL TIGHTEN THE SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENT
CAUSING INCREASING NORTHERLY WINDS AND BUILDING STEEP SEAS. MODELS
ARE SHOWING THE POSSIBILITY OF GALE CONDITIONS DEVELOPING THURSDAY
EVENING OVER THE OUTER WATERS. HOLDING OFF ON ISSUING A GALE WATCH
OR WARNING, BUT WILL LIKELY NEED ONE IF THE 12Z MODELS CONTINUE TO

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EUREKA CA
829 AM PDT WED JUL 23 2014

.SYNOPSIS...A WEAK FRONT WILL MOVE ONSHORE TODAY...BRINGING SOME
LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS TO THE REDWOOD COAST THIS MORNING. HIGH
PRESSURE WILL BUILD IN BEHIND THE FRONT AND THIS WILL BRING HOT
AND DRY CONDITIONS TO THE INLAND LOCATIONS...PERSISTING INTO THE
WEEKEND.


&&

.UPDATE...A WEAK FRONT CONTINUES TO MOVE THROUGH NORTHWEST
CALIFORNIA THIS MORNING BRINGING LIGHT RAIN TO DEL NORTE AND
NORTHERN HUMBOLDT COUNTIES. ACCUMULATION WILL GENERALLY BE AROUND
A TENTH OF AN INCH OR LESS...WITH ONLY A TRACE EXPECTED IN THE
HUMBOLDT BAY AREA. INCREASED POPS TO DEFINITE IN AREAS WHERE RAIN WILL
LIKELY ACCUMULATE THIS MORNING...OTHERWISE THE FORECAST REMAINS ON
TRACK AND THE PREVIOUS DISCUSSION IS INCLUDED BELOW.


&&

.PREV DISCUSSION......ISSUED AT 338 AM PDT...

DISCUSSION...A WEAK FRONT IS APPROACHING NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
THIS MORNING. 1030Z RADAR SHOWS SHOWERS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS FRONT
OFFSHORE AND APPROACHING THE COAST. THE REDWOOD COAST CAN EXPECT
SHOWERS THIS MORNING, WITH THE GREATEST THREAT BEING OVER DEL
NORTE COUNTY. QPF SHOULD BE MINIMAL, PROBABLY LESS THAN 0.1 INCHES
NEAR THE CA/OR BORDER, DECREASING FURTHER TO THE SOUTH. SHOWERS
WILL DECREASE THIS MORNING AND AFTERNOON AS THE FRONT MOVES
INLAND. HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD IN BEHIND THE FRONT AND THIS WILL
BRING HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS TO THE INLAND LOCATIONS. TOWARDS THE
END OF THE WEEK THE FOUR CORNERS RIDGE EXPANDS BACK INTO NORTHWEST
CALIFORNIA, ALLOWING INLAND TEMPERATURES TO RISE INTO THE LOW
100S. MODELS STILL SHOW A CUT-OFF LOW FORMING TO OUR SOUTHWEST
LATE THIS WEEK. HOWEVER, THEY HAVE BACKED OFF ON IT`S STRENGTH,
WHICH WOULD REDUCE OUR THUNDERSTORM THREAT. REGARDLESS, THIS WILL
CONTINUE TO BE WATCHED FOR THE NEXT THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS.

AVIATION...AN UPPER TROUGH AND ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT MOVING
ACROSS THE AREA TODAY WILL MAINTAIN MVFR/IFR CIGS THROUGH THE DAY.
AS THE COLD FRONT SLIPS ACROSS THE AREA THIS AFTERNOON, LIGHT RAIN
WILL LIKELY FALL AT AIR STRIPS ACROSS DEL NORTE AND HUMBOLDT
COUNTIES (CEC AND ACV). NO RAIN IS EXPECTED ACROSS MENDOCINO
COUNTY, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SOME POSSIBLE LIGHT DRIZZLE ALONG
THE COAST. BEHIND THE FRONT MOST AREAS SHOULD SEE SOME CLEARING
AND LIFTING CIGS ALLOWING FOR VFR. BFG

MARINE...AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH MOVING EAST ACROSS THE WEST COAST
TODAY WILL PULL A WEAK SURFACE COLD FRONT OVER THE COASTAL WATERS
THIS EVENING. WINDS WILL REMAIN LIGHT AHEAD OF THE FRONT AS THE
SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENT CONTINUES TO BE WEAK. SEAS WILL BEGIN TO
BUILD SLIGHTLY THROUGH THE DAY AS POST FRONTAL SWELL OUT RUNS THE
FRONT. BEHIND THE FRONT HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD TOWARD THE REGION
FROM THE WEST. THIS WILL TIGHTEN THE SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENT
CAUSING INCREASING NORTHERLY WINDS AND BUILDING STEEP SEAS. MODELS
