  • Storm Door's Open Wide!



    The Northern California Area has enjoyed a long extended dryspell over the last couple months,
    and fantastic weather for outdoor activities. We hope you enjoyed it, because it's all about to come to an
    end in the the next 48 hours! We need the snow and rain so it's a good thing. Just remember to bring in the
    hammock, clean the roof gutters break out the foulies again. Saturday's CYC Midwinters could be a damp one!





    PREVIOUS EXTENDED...NOW TO THE MAIN EVENT...A DRASTIC CHANGE IN
    THE WEATHER PATTERN. THE MUCH TALKED ABOUT PATTERN CHANGE WILL
    COMMENCE ON WEDNESDAY AS THE STORM DOOR OPENS. FLOW BECOMES MORE
    ZONAL STARTING WEDNESDAY AS THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF STORM SYSTEMS
    TAKES AIM AT SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA. THE LATEST MODEL GUIDANCE IS
    IN PRETTY GOOD AGREEMENT IN BRINGING RAIN TO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
    TUESDAY NIGHT NIGHT AND THE NORTH BAY AS EARLY AS WEDNESDAY
    MORNING. A GOOD SWATH OF HIGHER PRECIPITABLE WATER IS FORECAST TO
    SLIDE SOUTH THROUGH THE DAY. AS A RESULT...EXPECT RAIN TO SPREAD
    SOUTH THROUGH THE DAY AS WELL. GIVEN THE AMPLE AMOUNT OF
    MOISTURE...PWATS IN EXCESS OF 1.15 INCHES...MODERATE TO HEAVY
    RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE. THE FIRST STORM SYSTEM WILL LIKELY GENERATE
    THE MOST RAINFALL NORTH OF THE CWA...BUT FOR OUR AREA THE NORTH
    BAY WILL INITIALLY SEE THE HIGHEST RAINFALL THROUGH WEDNESDAY.

    LONG TERM(THURSDAY-SUNDAY)...
    THE STORM DOOR REMAINS OPEN. THE WEDNESDAY SYSTEM WILL DROP
    FARTHER SOUTH ON THURSDAY BRINGING RAIN...POSSIBLY MODERATE AT
    TIMES...TO THE ENTIRE CWA BY DAYS END. RAINFALL TOTALS THROUGH
    THURSDAY EVENING ARE FORECAST TO BE 1-2 INCHES ACROSS THE N
    BAY...0.25-1 INCH MONTEREY BAY TO SAN FRANCISCO AND LESS THAN 0.25
    INCHES SOUTH.

    THERE COULD BE A BRIEF REPRIEVE LATE THURSDAY WITH MORE OF SHOWERY
    REGIME AS THE FIRST SYSTEM SLIDES FARTHER SOUTHWARD. QUICK ON ITS
    HEELS ANOTHER MOIST SYSTEM WILL MOVE TO THE COAST FRIDAY AND
    SATURDAY. THERE ARE SOME INDICATIONS THAT THE SECOND SYSTEM
    WILL TAP INTO EVEN MORE MOISTURE THAN THE FIRST WITH PWAT
    APPROACHING 1.5 INCHES. THE BEING SAID...EXPECT MORE WIDESPREAD
    RAINFALL...AGAIN POSSIBLE HEAVY AT TIMES...FOR MUCH OF THE CWA
    FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. RAINFALL TOTALS WILL BE MORE IN THE 0.5-1
    INCH RANGE WITH A FEW HIGH SPOTS OVER 2 INCHES.

    TO ROUND OUT THE WEEKEND...A THIRD STORM SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO
    MOVE THROUGH THE REGION BRING ANOTHER ROUND OF RAINFALL OT CWA.

    ASIDE FROM THE ANTICIPATED RAINFALL...EACH PASSING SYSTEM WILL
    LIKELY BRING BREEZY TO OCCASIONALLY GUSTY CONDITIONS TO THE REGION.

    ALL THAT BEING SAID...AFTER A RATHER PROLONGED QUIET PERIOD OF
    WEATHER THINGS ARE ABOUT TO BECOME ACTIVE. STAY TUNED FOR THE
    LATEST FORECASTS REGARDING THE UPCOMING SERIES OF STORM SYSTEM.

    • A Big Breeze Conclusion In Lagos
      by Photoboy


      The GC32 Lagos Cup, the pre-Worlds for next month’s GC32 World Championship, concluded in big breeze. Despite the flying catamaran fleet heading out an hour early, by the end of the first race, the sea state was still relatively flat but with the wind averaging 22 knots and gusting to 27 it was ‘survival’ for some of the 10 teams, so PRO Stuart Childerley made the welcome decision to abandon racing.

      Otherwise the historic maritime port on Portugal’s
