Summary- We have the wetter pattern with a broad belt of westerlies across most of Calif. The troughing pattern is bi-modal. Most troughs develop near the coast of northcentral and N Calif, but a few develop into S Calif, coming down the coast and deepening over NW Mexico and into Arizona. Forcing for troughs occurring from the N and north-central coast and WSW-ward is from the sea surface temperature anomaly (SSTA) pattern W of north-central Calif. Forcing for troughs over SE Calif, NW Mexico and Arizona and S Great Basin is related to the currently weak El Niño. The combined effect is for wet in N and north-central California, and a drier regime, punctuated by an occasional rain in southcentral and S Calif. We still could see a late season southern storm track condition, usually appearing as an upper low over SOCAL, NW Mexico, or S Arizona in April.
