Synopsis...
a few hit and miss remain possible today, mainly this morning into
perhaps early afternoon, primarily for locations north of Mendocino
County. Brief ridging will bring a temporary dry spell area-wide
tonight into Sunday morning, before another storm system brings
widespread rainfall, higher elevation snowfal models have shown a slight northward
drift in precipitation with some delay also seen in timing. In any
event, after this latter system, high pressure looks to build across
the state with perhaps a prolonged period, featuring mainly clear
skies and dry conditions. /Pd
