Now my forecast is for .94". The duration keeps extending and is now to midday Friday.
The 18Z GFS has the cold L dropping down to Baja.
The final twist in this stormy pattern comes in the form of a
cut-off low pressure system over western Oregon that drops
southward into southern California late Thursday. Lingering
showers Wednesday night will increase again to steady rain across
the entire region on Thursday. This system looks uncertain at the
moment on just how much over water trajectory is available for
precipitation totals, but I have leaned toward the wetter ECMWF
solution then. Probably a larger concern is the very cold air
aloft that could result in low elevation snow and/or graupel
showers Thursday afternoon into the night. I-5 Grapevine impacts
look possible with snow levels dropping to 4k feet or less.
The cut-off low pressure system drops southward across the region
toward the Mexico border on Friday. Showers should continue early
Friday with mountain snow showers and potential impacts for
mountain travelers. It will definitely be a cool winter day as
this system slowly moves south and east of us.
Farther out after the break is the next big storm! If the GFS verifies its the start of another multi day, multi storm happening. This time its snow for all too.
