The NWS predicts chances of isolated showers north of Santa Cruz today and tomorrow with a drying trend into Wednesday. However, for the San Rafael area there isn’t much rain predicted until late Friday when a front moves through the area. Then, we may expect a wet weekend containing light showers.
Peak tides throughout the week are predicted to be just under 6-ft, however, with the low a pressure front moving through the area, there is a peak residual of about 0.2 feet above predicted. Tidally-influenced flooding is not expected this week.
Existing models continue to show about a 50% probability of above average wet conditions for December and January, but a warmer than average and dryer for February through April.
