Weather Forecast, 12/1/18

Welcome to December! Here is John Lindsay’s weather forecast from yesterday:

“A low-pressure system and cold front will produce increasing southerly winds and will spread rain across the Central Coast later on Tuesday into Wednesday with rain showers on Thursday. Total rainfall amounts with this system should range between 1.00 and 2.50 inches. Snow elevations are expected to raise to 5,000 feet.

The long-range models are indicating wet and unsettled weather continuing through the first part of December. In fact, the long-range models are advertising a potentially stronger system moving into the Central Coast next weekend.”

From this morning’s NOAA forecast discussion:

“The last few GFS and Canadian runs have given up on rain chances for next weekend but the latest ECMWF still shows a chance of rain. Longer range guidance still honing in on additional systems around Dec 10-11th. The active and wet start to rainy season looks to continue.”
