good ( james )( james ) good morning i'm james fletcher. ( darya ) and i'm darya folsom before we get to our crews outside lets get a traffic and the timing of this storm with mabrisa rodriguez. (mabrisa (mabrisa rodriguez)low pressure trough is dominating the local weather pattern early this morning and will continue to do so through the next few days. this storm system will bring gusty southwest winds, moderate to locally heavy rainfall, the potential for thunderstorms, and accumulating snow at the highest locations. earlier this morning, the surface cold front out ahead of the parent upper low was essentially lined up along the pacific coastline from san francisco to seattle earlier but has now trekked slightly inland to encompass the north bay. as a result, the north bay has seen the bulk of the precipitation so far, with up to 2.00" in the wettest locations and widespread accumulations of
7:01 am
.66" to 1.00" across the inland north bay valleys. warm sector precipitation ahead of the main cold front has already pushed deep into central california, bringing at least minor accumulations to nearly all portions of the san francisco bay and monterey bay areas. the bulk of the rain from this storm is expected to come through the remainder of this morning and into the early afternoon as the cold front sinks deeper into the golden state. southwest flow of 40 to 50kt at 850mb will accompany this storm system today. this southwest flow will enhance the frontal boundary as it shifts southward today by providing deeper moisture advection/vapor transport into the region as well as increasing the already favorable (orthogonal) orographic setup. as a result, much heavier precipitation is forecast to fall over the areas most susceptible to orographic effects, ie, the highest terrain over big sur (and to a lesser effect the santa cruz mountains). while 3-5" storm total is generally expected across these two areas, locally higher amounts of 6 to 8 inches over the santa lucia range are possible as the front becomes enhanced later today. while breezy southwest winds and periodic gusts area already common early this morning (peak gust of 48mph at mount diablo), winds are expected to ramp up significantly higher after sunrise. as a result, a wind advisory is in effect for all locations through most of the day (from 2am to 10pm in the san francisco bay area and 7am to 10pm in the monterey bay area). be sure to tie down any loose outdoor items and drive carefully if travelling east or west (crosswind) in a high profile vehicle today. snow levels will start out around 4000 feet on thursday then lower to 2500-3000 feet friday into saturday. given that this is a wetter storm system than our previous systems, we could see very localized accumulations on the higher peaks (primarily over the santa lucia/big sur range) of a few to several inches. forecast models show the storm system slowing down and changing direction over the coming days. the cold core of the upper low descends from offshore of the pacnw into northern california by saturday and eventually exits the region sometime sunday. the mid term models diverge on the exact timing, with the gfs favoring a bit more progressive pattern than the euro. that said, an extended duration of wet, unsettled weather will linger across the
7:02 am
area as the postfrontal environment remains energetic. look for on again off again rain showers and isolated thunderstorms (including the potential for copious amounts of small hail) friday saturday and into early sunday. generally speaking, water year accumulations have been underwhelming so far leading to drier antecedent conditions and less flood/debris flow risk than we would otherwise be normally facing. we are anticipating that these rains will generally be categorized as beneficial to the area with lower risk of flooding. we will be watching closely for enhancement of this storm later today as it will drive which areas will see the highest rainfall amounts and if there will be any risk of localized flooding. no major hot spots. bay bridge wb 80 is less then 30 min from

this storm system will bring gusty southwest winds, moderate to locally heavy rainfall, the potential for thunderstorms, and accumulating snow at the highest locations. earlier this morning, the surface cold front out ahead of the parent upper low was essentially lined up along the pacific coastline from san francisco to seattle earlier but has now trekked slightly inland to encompass the north bay. as a result, the north bay has seen the bulk of the precipitation so far, with up to 2.00" in the wettest locations and widespread accumulations of .66" to 1.00" across the inland north bay valleys. warm sector precipitation ahead of the main cold front has already pushed deep into central california, bringing at least minor accumulations to nearly all portions of the san francisco bay and monterey bay areas. the bulk of the rain from this storm is expected to come through the remainder of this morning and into the early afternoon as the cold front sinks deeper into the golden state. southwest flow of 40 to 50kt at 850mb will accompany this

( darya ) the oakland school board has taken a big step towards ensuring clean drinking water at its schools. multiple schools in the district have elevated levels of lead in the water. the district held a meeting last night and addressed the issue. they have agreed to replace pipes and fixtures when lead levels are over 5 parts per billion. that is more strict than federal regulations... which are at 15 parts per billion. however, some people are saying that's not enough.

parent upper low was essentially lined up along the pacific coastline from san francisco to seattle earlier but has now trekked slightly inland to encompass the north bay. as a result, the north bay has seen the bulk of the precipitation so far, with up to 2.00" in the wettest locations and widespread accumulations of .66" to 1.00" across the inland north bay valleys. warm sector precipitation ahead of the main cold front has already pushed deep into central california, bringing at least minor accumulations to nearly all portions of the san francisco bay and monterey bay areas. the bulk of the rain from this storm is expected to come through the remainder of this morning and into the early afternoon as the cold front sinks deeper into the golden state. southwest flow of 40 to 50kt at 850mb will accompany this

storm system today. this southwest flow will enhance the frontal boundary as it shifts southward today by providing deeper moisture advection/vapor transport into the region as well as increasing the already favorable (orthogonal) orographic setup. as a result, much heavier precipitation is forecast to fall over the areas most susceptible to orographic effects, ie, the highest terrain over big sur (and to a lesser effect the santa cruz mountains). while 3-5" no major hot spots. bay bridge wb 80 is less then 30 min from the maze to sf. san mateo bridge less then 30 min from 880 to 101. golden gat bridge drive time less than 30 min from 37 to the toll plaza. richmond bridge drive less than 20 min from the toll to 101
