A very vigorous low is coming into the CONUS via Britiish Columbia....a big push of Arctic air looms behind the initial impulse which has already pushed rain into the Northwest and snow into higher elevations. As this cold air mass settles over the West daytime temperatures will be up to 10-15 degrees below normals, with widespread freezing and frost even near the coastlines by Wednesday night.....
First the WV loop showing the fast moving energy and the cold air behind it...several impulses are poised to ride along this front into the Mid-West and Great Lakes regions later this week, after the low passes through the Rockies and Bitterroot Mountains. Some are anticipating a STJ interaction down the line....You be the judge of where the STJ looks like it's going....
NWS calling for showers, then cold snap for the SF Bay Area....Tuesday into Wednesday...unsettled....Wednesday to Saturday much cooler weather...

Special Weather Statement
Now - Monday, Dec 2, 10:00am
...VERY COLD CONDITIONS EXPECTED LATER THIS WEEK ACROSS THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA AND MONTEREY BAY AREA... ...AT LEAST THREE CONSECUTIVE NIGHTS OF WIDESPREAD FREEZING TEMPERATURES POSSIBLE BEGINNING WEDNESDAY NIGHT...
A VERY COLD WEATHER SYSTEM CURRENTLY OVER THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WILL DROP SOUTH INTO CALIFORNIA ON MONDAY NIGHT. A COLD FRONT WILL SWEEP FROM NORTH TO SOUTH ACROSS THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA ON MONDAY NIGHT AND THEN THROUGH THE MONTEREY BAY AREA BY EARLY TUESDAY. ISOLATED LIGHT SHOWERS MAY OCCUR AS THE FRONT MOVES THROUGH...BUT FOR THE MOST PART THIS WEATHER SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO BE DRY. THE PRIMARY IMPACT OF THIS SYSTEM WILL BE MUCH COLDER WEATHER BEGINNING ON TUESDAY AND CONTINUING THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK...WITH WIDESPREAD FREEZING TEMPERATURES LIKELY DURING THE NIGHT AND MORNING HOURS.
BLUSTERY CONDITIONS WILL DEVELOP ON MONDAY NIGHT AFTER THE COLD FRONT PASSES. NORTHWEST WINDS WILL INCREASE TO 15 TO 25 MPH ON MONDAY NIGHT WITH LOCAL GUSTS TO NEAR 40 MPH EXPECTED NEAR THE COAST AND IN THE HILLS. THESE GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS WILL CONTINUE INTO TUESDAY BEFORE GRADUALLY DECREASING TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY.
THE AIRMASS BEHIND THE FRONT WILL HAVE ORIGINATED OVER WESTERN CANADA AND WILL BE VERY COLD. HIGH TEMPERATURES ON TUESDAY WILL MOSTLY BE IN THE 50S. FURTHER COOLING IS THEN EXPECTED BY WEDNESDAY WHEN HIGHS WILL RANGE FROM ONLY THE UPPER 40S TO MID 50S. BY MIDWEEK...DAYTIME TEMPERATURES WILL BE ANYWHERE FROM 15 TO 25 DEGREES COOLER THAN THE MILD TEMPERATURES EXPERIENCED ACROSS THE REGION ON SUNDAY. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE WELL BELOW NORMAL THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK AND INTO NEXT WEEKEND.
THE MAIN WEATHER CONCERN FOR THIS UPCOMING COLD WEATHER EVENT IS FREEZING TEMPERATURES DURING THE NIGHT AND MORNING HOURS. WINDS ARE FORECAST TO REMAIN STRONG ENOUGH ON TUESDAY NIGHT TO PREVENT TEMPERATURES FROM FALLING TOO FAR. HOWEVER...TEMPERATURES MAY DROP INTO THE UPPER 20S IN THE NORTH BAY VALLEYS LATE TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING. ONCE THE WINDS SUBSIDE ON WEDNESDAY...THE STAGE WILL BE SET FOR AT LEAST THREE VERY COLD NIGHTS ACROSS THE ENTIRE REGION BEGINNING ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT. WIDESPREAD FREEZING TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED ACROSS ALL INLAND AREAS DURING THE NIGHT AND MORNING HOURS BEGINNING ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT...WITH A LIGHT FREEZE EVEN POSSIBLE IN SOME COASTAL AREAS. LOW TEMPERATURES DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THE WEEK WILL FALL INTO THE 20S IN MOST VALLEYS....WITH LOWER TO MID 20S EXPECTED IN THE COLDEST INTERIOR VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURES IN COASTAL AREAS WILL RANGE FROM THE UPPER 20S TO MID 30S. FREEZING NIGHTTIME TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO LAST THROUGH AT LEAST FRIDAY NIGHT...BUT MAY CONTINUE INTO NEXT WEEKEND AS WELL.
A FREEZE WATCH FOR THIS COLD SNAP WILL LIKELY BE ISSUED ON MONDAY.
SEVERAL CONSECUTIVE HOURS OF FREEZING TEMPERATURES ARE LIKELY DURING THE COLDEST NIGHTS...ESPECIALLY ACROSS INLAND AREAS. THESE CONDITIONS CAN KILL OR DAMAGE SENSITIVE VEGETATION. IN ADDITION...THERE WILL BE INCREASED RISK OF HYPOTHERMIA FOR THOSE LIVING OUTSIDE. PLEASE CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECASTS FOR POSSIBLE FREEZE WATCHES AND WARNINGS AND FOR MORE SPECIFIC INFORMATION AS WE APPROACH THIS PERIOD OF COLD WEATHER.
More on California specifics soon....

NWS is talking about a small low impacting Southern California on Thanksgiving Day. This storm will be cut-off from the main flow so will not have a lot of energy to provide much rain. Cut-off lows are California's 'feature' of the Fall and Winter months the last few years and are very hard to predict as far as timing and rainfall amounts. NWS Monterey is saying very little precipitation in the Bay Area as we may be on the North side with only wrap around potential for light rains. The Pacific is gearing up for some energy to come towards the West Coast, this just may the first of several Southern stream waves...
Here's some eye-candy from Accuweather predicting rain from San Francisco south to LA and San Diego.
This map may be a bit generous in how far reaching this storm will be......
The WV loop seems to show a storm that is getting caught in the Northerly stream and some energy is trying to break off and flow south....we shall see.....
4 Nov 2013
A large scale trough has developed in the West, with no sign of a quick building ridge to block systems. A front moved through California on Sunday (mostly dry), but the energy is meeting up with the southern flow and a decent low will develop over the Rockies in the next day or two and bring snow to the Upper Midwest and some strong storms to the lower Plains. Two more pieces of energy are being funneled south by the Jet Stream and California may get a decent bit of lower elevation rain with mountain snows later this week.
The moisture feed from south of Hawaii seems to have run the gauntlet and is poised to energize the next system which could be a major player across the CONUS late this week.

So I guess the 'First Major Hurricane In The Western Hemisphere in 2013' means nothing to the main audience of Accuweather Forums???
Weather is weather and a Major Hurricane off the coast of Acapulco, MX is a big story....
Right now winds are 120 mph with gusts to 150 mph, the coast of Mexico near Acapulco and Northwards is being pummeled by torrential rains, 40-50 mph winds, and a storm surge that may increase if Raymond does not head West as the NHC cones shows.
This storm is going to pump a lot of moisture up into the CONUS at som,e point, so be aware of this Major Hurricane!
Lat/Long 16.2N 102.3 W about 160 WSW of Acapulco, Mexico....
Looks like the Tropics still have plenty of energy stored up to create Tropical systems in late October,
maybe...just maybe...the Atlantic basin can spin up one or two more TD's before the end of the year...
the area down by Honduras is showing some evidence of organized convection....???
14 Oct 2013
Within hours of being confirmed as a possible TD....Tropical Storm Priscilla has formed in the Eastern Pacific about 840 miles SSW of the southern tip of the Baja peninsula. That is now 2 Tropical Storms in close proximity to each other in the basin.
Here's the NHC track: (courtesy Accuweather)
Tropical Storm Priscilla has formed south of Octave in the eastern Pacific. Priscilla is a weak tropical storm, but it is expected to slowly strengthen over the next couple of days as it tracks north-northeast in the wake of Octave. However, Priscilla will make a turn to the northwest on Tuesday and it will begin to weaken as the storm tracks into an area that is unfavorable for tropical development due to higher wind shear and cooler waters. Priscilla will likely degrade to a tropical depression on Wednesday.From Accuweather Hurricane Page
