Dry conditions will continue through the weekend. A weakening front will bring a chance for light rain to Del Norte and Humboldt counties on Monday. Elsewhere dry conditions are expected to persist.
It's another cold morning across Northwest California as upper level ridging remains in place across the region. IR satellite is showing stratus forming along the Mendocino and Humboldt coastline which should bring slightly warmer temperatures to immediate coastal areas tonight but you won't have to be far inland to experience temperatures falling once again into the 30s tonight.
Dry conditions will persist into Sunday with mostly sunny skies away from the immediate coastline. Cloud cover will increase Sunday night into Monday as a front moves through the region. Model guidance has lined up better now with light rain expected in Del Norte and northern Humboldt counties. The NBM is showing over 50 percent chances for rain in Del Norte County and chances will increase further today if model trends persist. However, no matter the rain chances, total rainfall is expected to be light with maximum accumulations in the quarter inch range in the mountains of Del Norte and less farther south. It remains highly likely that Mendocino and Trinity counties will see little, if any rainfall while Lake County will remain dry.
Dry conditions will rapidly return Monday night as ridging builds back over the west coast. This ridge should be stout enough to weaken an approaching front on Thursday and dry conditions are currently predicted through the remainder of the work week. /RPA
Winds are expected to continue to be weak through Monday, followed by moderate to strong northerly winds across the outer waters during Tuesday. Moderate mid period northwest swell will continue to move through the waters this weekend. A long period NW swell around 13 feet at 17 seconds is expected to arrive Monday morning. Advisory levels will be likely. Even further out is the possibility of a sneaker wave threat on Wednesday, which will require monitoring to assess its validity.
