National Weather Service Information for the Marin County area as of 02/13/17:
Three more days of dry weather, Monday through Wednesday, then the next front arrives in the North Bay Wednesday night before dropping over the Bay Area for the Thursday morning commute. After a quick shot of wind and rain there will only be a brief break before the next storm arrives sometime Friday with subsequent storms expected to impact the Bay Area over the weekend and into next week. It is the cumulative effect of multiple storms that will likely impact area rivers, creeks, and generate possible land/mudslides.
*Impact 1 (Rain Thursday morning commute and then again Friday) :
• First front should bring rain for the Thursday morning commute. The system will be fast moving and impacts should be minimal overall. A second system looks to arrive sometime Friday with another round of rain. The attached image mainly covers Storm 1 (Thursday) with general totals of 0.25-0.75 valleys and 0.75-1.50 hills.
*Impact 2 (Wind):
• Southerly winds from 15 to 25 mph with gusts 30-40 mph possible during frontal passage on Thursday. Right now, Wind Advisories are not expected to be issued but that could change if more widespread and stronger gusts are forecast.
*Impact 3 (Increasing Swell by Friday):
• Depending on how and where the surface low develops on Friday, seas may build to around 15 feet near shore creating dangerous beach conditions
• Medium on timing and intensity of Thursday system. High confidence for more storms Friday and into the weekend but details are still low to medium confidence.
