.SYNOPSIS...
Dry weather will Less windy conditions expected today and
Thursday, then rain and snow chances return for the end of the
week into next week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Clear skies and cooler temperatures are present across the region
early this morning. Winds are much lighter than 24 hours ago as
surface pressure gradients have relaxed and stronger winds aloft
have decreased, but some areas with gusts in the 20s and 30s mph
remain over the foothills and higher elevations.

Dry weather will continue today and Thursday with lighter winds.
Highs will be a little cooler in the valley, but milder across
higher terrain as cold advection wanes. Generally clear skies will
allow for a better chance for valley frost tonight as dew points
recover.

Over the course of the rest of the week, max temperatures will
gradually cool through the 60s in the Valley, with temps returning
to near normal by Fri with highs in the 50s in the Valley, 30s to
40s in the foothills and mtns. Min temps will cool into the 30s
in the Valley, and teens and 20s in the mtns for the rest of the
week.

Although there are model timing/detail issues later in the week,
we are reasonably certain in the chances of rain/mountain snow on
Fri in Norcal. There is enough model agreement that a seasonably
cold upper trof will move into Norcal on Fri giving the CWA a
chance of precip. The heaviest amounts are forecast over the
Sierra (liquid amounts up to a half inch or so, and 3-6 inches or
so of snow), but only a few hundredths to a tenth of an inch in
the Valley. The system may linger into Sat, especially over the
Sierra, but the Valley is likely to clear from N to S as the
system drops Swd during the day. However, model differences create
some uncertainty as to the exact timing, i.e. afternoon or
evening. May see a thunderstorm or two late Friday over the
southeast corner of the forecast area as daytime heating coincides
with the upper trough passage.

&&

.EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Sunday THROUGH Wednesday)...
Long wave trough sets up along the West Coast allowing short wave
troughs to drop into it resulting in unsettled weather through
the extended forecast period. Below normal temperatures expected
with snow levels in the foothills.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conds ovr intr NorCal nxt 24 hrs. Sfc wnd genly blo 12 kts
exc lcl NEly sfc wnd gsts up to 35 kts poss in ern fthls til 18z.
