Started a new thread simply because "Fog" is not a weather story...and that is what the California coastal regions (and various inland forays) have to deal with in the months of June and July... mellow.gif

First of all...Here is the IR satellite...and a quote from NWS Monterey, CA
By late June standards it's a robust front with strong dynamics

Translation....a front that should bring strong onshore flow with drizzle along the coast...possible rain showers for far Northern California on Wednesday night/Thursday morning...perhaps with another impulse scraping the State on Friday into Saturday...leading to a possible windy Sunday before high pressure builds and provides clear, warm temperatures into early next week...

Yet this front is very strong in two ways (considering in is late June)...it appears to have adequate upper support and it is diving precariously close to California in a manner much more reminiscent of a late March/early April type of weaker front...meaning actual rain chances in June... ohmy.gif unsure.gif

Let's try looking at the UV loop to see how impressive this and the next little impulse are...
(just wait until this two 'little' impulses fare as they make their way across the CONUS) wink.gif

Check out the 'bowling ball' low pressure moving to the West, well off the Baja California coast...
