Project Status: 5 March 2006 (Sunday)

IOP-14 is undeway. Front is hung up along the coast so precip is light in the ARB. The DAX radar shows heaviest precip north of the ARB. Over 2" has fallen so far north of San Francisco. Trough axis later on Monday will amplify precip a bit before frontal passage and precip begins to wane.

XPOL scanning radar is up and running as are the Slough House supplementary soundings since no reports have been received to the contrary.

Longer range outlook still has another shot of precip Wed-Thurs as a series of short waves impacts the west coast but under much colder conditions.
