Another in a series of troughs is expected to roll through the West on Friday. This storm is gathering strength over the waters on the far NE Pacific Ocean and will follow the weakness created in the atmosphere by the recent trough(s) that have passed through the area. This storm seems to have a lot of upper air support and a decent amount of moisture to draw from.
Rain should start in the far northern sections late Thursday into Friday, with rain becoming widespread across Northern California on Friday into Saturday...Southern California actually has a decent shot at getting some measurable precipitation out this storm, with the Sierras likely to get a decent amount of rain/snow...A Late season storm like this will greatly benefit all areas who get measurable precipitation, especially if Southern California can get in on the act...
WPC is showing rainfall spreading south...with decent returns in many SoCal areas...
With an active jet stream...and several features now affecting East Asia...the end of April and beginning of May look to keep rain chances coming on and off for the next two weeks...

We are stuck in a "Summer'-like pattern in the San Francisco Bay Area region...
With onshore winds pushing the marine layer into the Bay during the overnight hours...
Partial clearing during the day along the coast, with highs in the low to mid 60's (exception Santa Cruz has been in low 70's), high 60's and mid 70's around the Bay, and upper 70's to low 80's in the inner protected valleys.
Since we are in a lull of weather (until mid-week next week) here's the only precipitation chance...
A small portion of the next shortwave trough may be able to set off some drizzle or light precipitation on Friday into Saturday...the two jet streams are confusing a lot of forecasts going into next week ....a larger scale trough is likely to settle into the West Coast next week...
EDIT: Updated title to reflect conditions....

It has finally felt a bit like Winter up here in Northern California...
It has been a long time since I can remember a series of storms hitting Northern California...
Another cold core low and associated instability is set to make landfall on the California coast beginning Monday morning...the jet is taking dead aim at Central California and this storm is very tightly formed with a definite area of cold unstable air at it's center...
Rain should begin in the Northern parts of the State by morning with a front sliding south and then the center of cold air coming in over the SF Bay Area during the day...lots of moisture to be found, a strong jet, great orientation of the front, and enough ooomph that should send showers Statewide by Tuesday...
This should be an impressive storm for late March/early April...the cold air is stacked up which should lead to generous snowfall above 4000ft. Even some of the higher coastal mountains could get a taste of snowfall on Monday night....
Another storm may affect the State on Wednesday into Thursday....

All signs point to a wet week in Washington, Oregon, and Northern California...
Looks mighty wet for the North Coast and if this is correct...an amazing amount of snow in the Sierras...
The snow levels might be fairly high so a lot of this could be rain...with some Sierra cement at the higher locations...
The fetch is very moisture rich and this next impulse appears to set up as a possible "Tropical style" moisture feed with very selective focal points...perhaps the Cal/Ore border area then slowly sagging south as the 'third' impulse in this series looks to sweep down from the GOA...
I love the WV loop as it shows the motion of the jet stream and upper air...not to mention drier areas within impulses...the Southern jet is very zonal and moving at a good pace...the center of low pressure that is pushing in this first wave is up by British Columbia and seems to want to remain offshore a bit longer which should help give the first (Mar.26-27) storm a little more dynamics and lift to give decent rainfall on Wednesday...then a brief bump up of the ridge on Thursday will allow for clearing into Friday when the warm front/'tropical feed' type of onshore flow looks to set up...
A 'firehose' pointing at the North Coast of California?....
