The spinning low pressure center that’s been off the California coast all week will come ashore tonight just north of Sonoma County, bringing the week’s best dose of rain.

The low pressure center was easily visible on the satellite view Friday afternoon.

The rain will last from about 4PM Friday to noon Saturday across the North Bay.

The hills may see 1.5 inches plus, with the valley areas of the North Bay around an inch of rain according to all of the latest models.

The high resolution NAM model clearly shows an orographic effect, with the hills expected to wring more rain out of the storm (red) by Saturday.


By Sunday high pressure will build in for Thanksgiving Week, ushering in a warming trend.

On Thanksgiving Day the Sierra may be brushed by a storm will be dropping into the Great Basin (blue), but we will stay dry (we may get some breezy conditions), with highs in the 65-75 degree range.

For Thanksgiving Week as a whole, slightly above average temperatures are expected, with dry weather in the forecast for the next 7-10 days.
