Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Sacramento CA
340 AM PDT Tue Oct 20 2020

.SYNOPSIS...
Dry weather and breezy northerly flow will continue this week with
periods of stronger winds resulting in elevated fire weather
conditions. Cooler temperatures by the weekend with potentially
another strong north to east wind event Sunday into Monday.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Pattern remains relatively unchanged as broad ridge extends from
the eastern Pacific into NorCal. Skies remain clear other than a
few high clouds skirting the far northern portion of the state.
North and east surface pressure gradients are once again
tightening, and northerly gusts of 15-30 mph are more prevalent
early this morning across the foothills and higher terrain
surrounding the northern Sacramento Valley. Additionally, current
RH`s in the upper teens and 20s percent are common across the same
area.

Breezy northerly winds combined with the unseasonably warm
temperatures, low RH and dry fuels will result in elevated,
locally critical, fire weather conditions today. Very poor RH
recovery and continuing breeziness will allow red flag conditions
to persist tonight into Wednesday morning.

A series of short-wave troughs moving through the PacNW beginning
Wednesday will weaken high pressure over NorCal during the second
half of the week. Temperatures will begin to trend down slightly
on Wednesday, with a bigger drop forecast on Thursday as highs
fall to only slightly above average.

North and east pressure gradients are forecast to tighten again
over NorCal on Wednesday night and Thursday as pattern amplifies
in response to the deepening trough to our east. Pressure
gradients are forecast to be significantly tighter than currently,
thus stronger winds are forecast during this time period with
sustained north to east winds 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40
mph, locally higher over wind prone areas. Breezy winds are likely
to continue into Friday. This will renew critical fire weather
concerns, and a Fire Weather Watch has been posted.

&&

.EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Saturday THROUGH Tuesday)...
Models have trended with a more eastward track of the weekend
short wave trough with it now digging mainly through the
Intermountain West. As a result, associated precipitation looks to
remain outside of our CWA. Main impact with it now appears to be
just some synoptic cooling which lingers into Sunday. High
pressure builds inland behind the system Sunday into Monday. This
will lead to some increased wind, and possibly elevated fire
weather conditions again over portions of interior NorCal. Near
normal high temperatures forecast Monday and Tuesday.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conds ovr intr NorCal nxt 24 hrs with areas of N-E sfc wnd
gsts up to 30 kts poss, lcly hyr in the fthls/mtns.
