1043 pm pdt Sun oct 21 2018

Synopsis Slightly cooler weather is forecast through Tuesday
as a weak upper low moves inland over california, and onshore flow
increases. High pressure is forecast to build across california
later in the week, resulting in a warming trend from Wednesday
through Friday. Dry weather is expected to prevail through the
forecast period.

Discussion As of 10:07 pm pdt Sunday... Low clouds are on the
increase and the marine layer has deepened. Temperatures today
were mostly on the chilly side for late october.

The 12z ECMWF still brings a chance of light rain with a cold
front, although it's forecasting much lower QPF compared to its
oct 20th 12z run, into the north bay late this Sunday into Monday.

The 00z GFS is in and it's showing a considerable amount of
difficulty from 5 to 10 days out in the handling of a series of
strong shortwave troughs entering alaska gulf of alaska. This
introduces a fair amount of uncertainty to our weather as well as
it ultimately affects the upstream synoptic weather pattern
between here and there. Guidance from the 00z ECMWF run arriving
by midnight should offer another look at the possibility of some
rain with a cold front arriving here Sunday into Monday early next
week.

Prev discussion As of 1:44 pm pdt Sunday... The stratus has cleared
except for along the northwest-facing areas such as point reyes,
san francisco san mateo coast, and the monterey peninsula.

Although much of the district has cleared, the slow burn-off
resulted in a cool day most areas with early-afternoon readings
running much cooler than 24 hours ago, with some areas like san
rafael, santa rosa and napa struggling to hit 60 degrees. Surface
pressure gradients are finally showing a marked change with sfo-
sac now 1.2 mb and acv-sfo at 2.2 mb. The marine layer has
deepened slightly to about 1200 feet, and as such, expect low
clouds to move inland once again tonight along with areas of fog,
similar to this morning.

Cool temperatures will persist for the next couple of days as a
shortwave trough moves through, deepening the marine layer and
increasing the onshore flow. Any rainfall with this trough is
forecast to occur well north of our area. An upper ridge will
then build in over california after midweek resulting in warming
temperatures. Another upper through is forecast to move onshore
late next weekend. The GFS keeps our area dry with rain chances
staying well to the north, but the latest run of the ECMWF does
bring rain to the north bay late Sunday into Monday.

Aviation As of 10:43 pm pdt Sunday... For 06z tafs. A weak
trough of low pressure moving across the region today into Monday
will bring about a slightly deeper marine layer and allow for more
inland intrusion of the stratus overnight. Generally light winds
will prevail through the forecast period.

Vicinity of ksfo... .Vfr conditions will prevail through late
tonight with ifr CIGS returning after midnight. CIGS will scatter
out around 18z Monday morning. Generally light to locally
variable winds expected through the night.

Sfo bridge approach... CIGS will fill in over the bay overnight
with CIGS anticipated over the bridge around 08z. Clearing is
anticipated around 19z Monday. Otherwise... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Ifr CIGS anticipated through the night.

Cigs will scatter out around 18z-19z Monday morning. Light winds.

Marine As of 9:00 pm pdt Sunday... Generally light northwesterly
winds and seas will prevail tonight through early in the week.

Northwest wind and seas will increase by Thursday or Friday as a
front approaches the far northern waters.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
