We may have one coming up next week, not this one. KCOY tv is reporting possible showers next Sunday, the 14th, and then a significant rain event the following Tuesday, the 16th. Obviously, it is too early for any accuracy, but it is worth a simple “heads-up.” I would imagine Monterey OES will be keeping a close eye on this, as we all will.
And from the NOAA Forecast discussion re: the event over a week away:
“OUT BEYOND THE 7-DAY FORECAST PERIOD…THE LATEST GFS DOES BRING A
MUCH WETTER SYSTEM TO THE STATE BY MONDAY DECEMBER 15TH WHEN IT
PLACES A DEEP CLOSED UPPER LOW JUST OFF THE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA COAST AND GIVES SEVERAL INCHES OF RAIN TO ENTIRE COASTAL CALIFORNIA. THE LATEST RUN OF THE ECMWF...THE 12Z RUN... MUCH LIKE THE 00Z RUN... BRINGS CONSIDERABLY LESS RAIN TO THE STATE. FORTUNATELY THIS STILL FALLS OUTSIDE THE TIME FRAME OF THE FORECAST PACKAGE SO THERE IS PLENTY OF TIME FOR SOME CONSENSUS TO BE REACHED."
