Just 'cause I'm in Cali-fornia doesn't mean idee doesn't have an interest in Hurricanes...
Hurricane Paine is a CAT1 Hurricane off of the Baja Mexico coast, it is still moving NNW at a good clip.
It will be big feature in the CONUS in the next few days as much needed tropical downpours will be pulled up into the desert Southwest of the country. Some moisture may even initiate stray thunderstorms in parts of California ( mostly southeastern desert areas ). With the lack of 'monsoon' moisture coming into many areas that depend on thunderstorms for much of their meager rainfall totals, this could be very welcoming.
Certainly the potential for flooding is not a joke...and the Southwest should be prepared for heavy rains.
The current 'forecast' has landfall occurring on the upper Baja peninsula on Wednesday evening..
The GOES 'rainbow shows an interesting weakness in the atmosphere to the north...
Idee is wondering if the storm may stay offshore even longer and slightly strengthen...
This would impact the California and Arizona deserts even more significantly with just a slight jog to the north...

I think it is going to rain in California...
And the Northwest is getting hammered by Alaskan extra-tropical cyclones...and the the jet slowly creeps south...

California Christmas Storm?.....Hardly....
Not much to talk about, but a new thread was needed to announce the front diving down from Alaska...
Bringing much colder air to a region where highs have been in the 60's/low 70's, and nights have been very mild (as much as 10+ degrees vs. 'normals')
Let's take a look at the WV loop to see this quick moving front and the cooler air moving in...
The front is moving down the California coastline, with showers starting in far Northern California.
The front will move steadily south throughout the day on Christmas eve bringing a tenth of an inch of rain to one quarter inch of rain in the SF Bay Area. According to NWS Monterey the front will drag south losing most of its meager precipitation, as the bulk of the energy is already over land and heading into the Great Basin. The most notable change will be a more Winter-like NW breeze with daytime highs only in the 50's and lows in the 40's, maybe 30's in cooler valleys of the North Bay. Southern California will mainly just feel the cooler air, and more seasonable temperatures...
After this there are no long range storms until around the New Year...as of yet...

The "Emergency Question Generator" is offline!
We are trying to fix the situation...but some Malware from 'foreign' sources has crashed the system...
So here goes with some Analog questions...
1. Back in the day(?)..What did they call a phone that is hard wired in your house?
2. What were 'frozen dinners' called before we had microwaves?
3. Name a recording system that used a diamond stylus to 'play' the music?
4. What did people used to read literature from before the onset of Tablets and computers?
5. What was the kind of television broadcast called before we had 'color' TV's?
6. What instrument was often played in theaters for 'sound' during 'Silent' movies?
(Before the advent of 'talkies'... )
Thanks for bearing with the poor quality (analog) questions....

The second storm in less than a week is poised offshore, ready to bring much needed rainfall up and down the California coast.
This system is still maturing and has excellent upper air support, it should bring strong winds to the coastal sections of the State as it approaches the coast beginning Monday night/early Tuesday morning. WPC forecasts have QPF as high as 4-5" of rain in the orographically favorable regions of the coastal mountains, with an inch to two inches in some of the valleys. The Sierras look to get generous snowfall amounts in the higher elevations(although the initial snows will be mostly above 7,000ft), the colder air will move in and give nice snow totals down to lake level (Tahoe) and gradually even perhaps down to 5,000ft levels on Wednesday. Southern California should gear up for the first significant rainstorm in many months, with possible mud and debris flows in the fire ravaged areas, also drivers will have to careful with high winds and very slick roadways.
Bring it On!
