A ridge of high pressure will continue to bring dry conditions and cold overnight low temperatures to northwest California through this weekend. There will be a slight chance for rain Sunday night or Monday in Del Norte and Humboldt counties as a weakening front moves through the region.
Dry conditions will persist through Sunday as ridging remains in place over the west coast. This is resulting in cold overnight low temperatures and some areas along coastal areas falling into the upper to mid 30s. There are some indications in the higher resolution model guidance that stratus could reform along some coastal locations tonight or Saturday night, but confidence remains low on extent of this coverage. Currently the guidance is producing too much stratus as compared to the current coverage off the coast. We shall see how this pans out and this development will have an impact on whether or not another round of frost advisories for coastal areas, the only areas where the growing season is still in effect besides interior Del Norte, will be needed.
A weakening front will bring increased cloud cover and a slight chance of rain to the region Sunday night into Monday. Trends continue to show only light rain possible with the best chances in Del Norte County. Very little guidance is now indicating any chance for rain south of Humboldt County. Beyond this little passing front there is high confidence in the dry conditions returning for Tuesday and Wednesday and likely at least through Thursday. /RPA
Steep seas continue across the outer waters generating small craft conditions through late morning. Small Craft Advisory remain in effect for the outer waters through 20Z. Otherwise, another long period northwesterly swell around 8 to 10 feet at 17 seconds is forecast to move through the waters today and Saturday, followed by a more significant swell impacting the coastal waters on Monday. Additional headlines will likely be needed.
