.UPDATE...
Upper trough over Mexico keeping WSW flow aloft over the
Gulf and state this morning. Cold front sagging into N FL
and Northern Gulf. Band of very light sprinkles moving over
the Bay Area this morning, with a few area receiving trace
amounts and don`t expect much measurable precip out of it.
Latest grids and forecasts handle that well. Elsewhere
warming trend ahead of front and mid to upper clouds
continue to move through the region. Front to slowly move
south today and tonight to keep 10%-20% POPs ahead of and
along front. Slightly cooler and drier conditions for
Saturday expected.
