Here we go with a forecast for the west coast. I’ve been guilty of looking a little too intently at the local weather in Minnesota. What is going on out West? We’re all going to find out right now!
At 756PM, PT, San Francisco was reporting a temperature of 54 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. Clouds were clearing out from the South Bay down towards Monterey after a fairly disorganized upper level trough continued to work its way through the center part of the state. There was still considerable rainfall over interior northern California, but it appeared this had more to do with terrain rather than any organized instability.
The upper level trough is essentially the backwash of a strong system in the Plains, which explains why there is so little residue along the coast. A high amplitude upper level ridge is building in the west coast behind the upper low, which will bring some stability along the coast, but onshore winds and clear overnight skies may lead to a bit cooler temperatures.

It looks like the big forecast difference is over whether or not there will be showers tomorrow morning. Looking at the radar, I still don’t think rain is very likely.
