Forecast Jargon Decoder: Mon, Apr 22 2024

Wind forecast For Monday: 

 Synopsis: The North Pacific High’s surface NW winds move further from shore as low-pressure moves over the coast in the AM, and a counter-clockwise eddy develops encouraged by the low-pressure and NNE winds aloft. The eddy never dies even as the low-pressure retreats back to the Central Valley the max pressure gradient is pretty evenly split between Chico, Sacramento, and Stockton which encourages SW winds in the coast and inside the Bay.
