Project Status - 11 March 2007
Weather Status: Outlook still bleak for the short term (0-5 days). A closed low will drift toward the coast by 15-16 March but models are indicating dry conditions with it. We will continue to monitor this system. Some flattening of the ridge off the coast is occurring but not enough to bring systems into central California. Beyond 5 days ridge grows, sustaining dry conditions. First break may come in the March 20-21 time frame. Question here is whether trof comes in as an open feature or closed-off. 9-10 days is a long way off and much could change. Decision for today: no operations for 72 hours.
System Status: All ESRL systems appear to be up and running today.
