Here is the 7-Day Outlook for NW California. A weak shortwave will brings light to localized moderate rainfall on Monday. Potential for impactful precipitation will increase mid to late week as a series of frontal systems moves toward the West Coast.
There is a high risk of sneaker waves Sunday morning through Monday morning. Relatively large, unexpected waves can sweep across beaches, rocks, and jetties without warning. Be cautious at jetties and steep beaches. Never turn your back to the ocean!
Light rain showers will interrupt the current clear and calm weather Monday. Rain showers will be light to moderate with most accumulation restricted to right along the North Coast.
Gusty northwest wind will accompany light rain showers Monday. Gusts will mostly stay below 30 mph with only isolated gusts to 40 mph possible along high terrain. Northwest wind will help pull in cooler air, dropping temperatures through mid week.
