Upper-left: Satellite images indicate that ex-hurricane ANA was degrading as it approached to North America on Oct. 26th, Sun.
Upper-right: Satellite image and East Pacific Surface Analysis produced by National Weather Service show that Storm ANA carried high relative humidity, forming cloud band along its cold front at 0Z Oct. 29th, Wed. / 17PDT Oct. 28th, Tues.
At 6Z Oct 29th, Wed /23PDT Oct 28th, Tues, Storm ANA has dissipated as its cold front overtook its warm front.
Yet, its remnant moisture continues to contribute to another low pressure system approaching North America at 12Z/5PDT Oct 29th, Wed.
This new low pressure system brings a chance of precipitation to the SF Bay Area on Oct 31st, Fri.
