Showers late Friday into Saturday but not a heavy storm

We put together another mild day with above average temperatures. This month of February so far has been a rain dud and the season shortages are getting large, between 1-4+". Those grew quickly this month since this is supposed to be our wettest month.

The good news is that there is a system on the way for Friday night into Saturday afternoon, but the bad news is that this system will not provide near enough rainfall to help the growing shortage in any significant way. In fact the forecast after this shower event quickly goes back to dry and mild.

Offshore flow again tonight into early Friday sets us up for another spectacular day to get outside, clouds don't pull in until late for most.

The rain system is an upper low and currently remaining far offshore before making its approach to California on Friday night. The timing of the system did slow a little which will mean shower chances continue into Saturday afternoon. The showers look scattered. Snow levels are around 5000 which is not a local concern.

The system quickly pulls out later Saturday evening and we return quickly to dry NW flow.

Some N-NE flow returns next week for quiet weather.
