            420 AM PDT TUE MAY 10 2011



            JUST IN TIME FOR THE WEEKEND...CONDITIONS WILL TAKE A TURN FOR THE
            WORSE AS THE TROF MOVES TO THE WEST COAST AS AN ASSOCIATED 537 DM
            500 MB LOW 40N/130W BY SATURDAY AFTERNOON. MODELS REMAIN IN FAIRLY
            GOOD AGREEMENT THAT THE FIRST ROUND OF RAIN WILL START LATE ON
            SATURDAY AHEAD OF THE LOW AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
            ALTHOUGH THIS DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A WASH-OUT FOR THE WEEKEND...SINCE
            IT IS OCCURRING SO LATE IN THE WATER YEAR...ANY ADDITIONAL RAINFALL
            WILL BE ABOVE CLIMO NORMS. AT THE SAME TIME SNOW LEVELS WILL DROP
            AS 700 MB TEMPS APPROACH MINUS 11C. THIS COULD TRANSLATE TO SNOW
            SHOWERS LOCALLY AS LOW AS 3500 FEET. THIS SETUP ALSO APPEARS GOOD
            FOR SOME CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY WITH SMALL HAIL A GOOD POSSIBILITY WITH
            THE STRONGEST SHOWERS. MORE RAIN AND BREEZY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED
            ON SUNDAY AS ANOTHER PIECE OF ENERGY ROTATES AROUND THE LOW.

            DEPENDING ON THE PROGRESSION OF THE LOW...RAIN COULD END SUNDAY NIGHT
            AND STAY WELL TO THE NORTH INTO TUESDAY (GFS SOLUTION) OR AT LEAST A
            CHANCE OF SHOWERS COULD STAY IN THE PICTURE FROM SATURDAY THROUGH
            WEDNESDAY (ECMWF SOLUTION). ECMWF HAS USUALLY PERFORMED BETTER PAST
            DAY 5 SO WILL KEEP SOME POPS GOING IN THE GRIDS OUT TO DAY 8.
            ALTHOUGH WE DO HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR PICKING UP NOTABLE RAINFALL...
            LOOKING BACK AT TWO LATE SEASON RAIN EVENTS FROM 1957 AND 1996 THAT
            PRODUCED LARGE TOTALS FOR MAY SHOW A SYNOPTIC PATTERN THAT WAS MORE
            CONDUCIVE TO LARGE TOTALS. THEREFORE...EARLY NUMBERS SUGGEST RAINFALL
            VALUES WILL STAY UNDER HALF AN INCH IN URBAN SPOTS AND UNDER AN INCH
            IN MOST HIGHER ELEVATION LOCATIONS.

              Charlie, I think you are right, but I would rather see chaos vs. Carnage, and that proves I don't work for a sail maker or Yard

                just in time for the weekend...conditions will take a turn for the
                worse as the trof moves to the west coast as an associated 537 dm
                500 mb low 40n/130w by saturday afternoon. Models remain in fairly
                good agreement that the first round of rain will start late on
                saturday ahead of the low and continue through the weekend.
                Although this does not look like a wash-out for the weekend...since
                it is occurring so late in the water year...any additional rainfall
                will be above climo norms. At the same time snow levels will drop
                as 700 mb temps approach minus 11c. This could translate to snow
                showers locally as low as 3500 feet. This setup also appears good
                for some convective activity with small hail a good possibility with
                the strongest showers. More rain and breezy conditions are expected
                on sunday as another piece of energy rotates around the low.

                Depending on the progression of the low...rain could end sunday night
                and stay well to the north into tuesday (gfs solution) or at least a
                chance of showers could stay in the picture from saturday through
                wednesday (ecmwf solution). Ecmwf has usually performed better past
                day 5 so will keep some pops going in the grids out to day 8.
                Although we do have the potential for picking up notable rainfall...
                Looking back at two late season rain events from 1957 and 1996 that
                produced large totals for may show a synoptic pattern that was more
                conducive to large totals. Therefore...early numbers suggest rainfall
                values will stay under half an inch in urban spots and under an inch
                in most higher elevation locations.


                Who ordered up this weather?
                more interesting weather is anticipated beginning over the weekend as
                an unseasonably deep upper level low drops south from the gulf of
                alaska to just off the northern california coast. Showers associated
                with this cold low are progged to spread across the district saturday
                night and continue into sunday. Snow levels could also lower to as
                low as 3500 feet in our area and given the cold nature of the low...
                Thunderstorms are also a definitely possibility along with small
                hail.

                  Haven't entered yet because I'm waiting for news from Svendsens that my boat will be ready, but right now I'd say 90/10 that we'll be there.

                        It looks like we have another weekend of doing W/L racing on the city front With the same old suspects to entertain the guest at the StFancy grill room…………….I feel so used!

                        Forecast is looking ok with some wind but it might be a bit “damp” on Sunday.

                        Saturday: WSW wind 7 to 12 kt. Partly sunny.

                        Sunday: SSE wind 8 to 10 kt becoming WSW in the afternoon. Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm. Some of the storms could produce small hail.




                        Edit..........its great to see WS got things put back together in time to make the regatta!!
