Project Status: 7 March 2006 (Tuesday)

IOP-14 ended at noon PST. All soundings (OAK & Slough House) have been exhaused. Since IOP-14 began on Sunday 09 UTC Blue Canyon has received 2.51 inches of liquid equivalent precipitation. Only showery precip remains over the ARB and that is expected to continue for the rest of the day then diminish tonight.

In the longer term the next system is a fast-moving one arriving late Wed night into Thursday followed by a series of waves with progressively colder and showery conditions. By the beginning of next week an extended period of drier weather moves in as the mean ridge developes over the West Coast.
