area forecast discussion
national weather service san francisco bay area
105 pm pdt Thu sep 21 2017

Synopsis A cool, upper level trough will dominate the western
portion of the country through the workweek maintaining cooler
than average temperatures and breezy conditions. Aside from the
potential for isolated showers offshore or near the coast Thursday,
dry weather conditions will prevail. A gradual warming trend is
then expected to begin this weekend and persist into early next
week.

Discussion As of 1:05 pm pdt Thursday... Visible satellite
reveals a mostly sunny to sunny afternoon across the region. The
cold front that passed through overnight was able to sufficiently
mix-out the marine layer with mostly clear skies extending over
the waters as well. There have been a few areas of post-frontal
cumulus development over the santa lucias, diablo range, and
santa cruz mountains this morning that will continue this
afternoon. Can't rule out a stray sprinkle in these areas, but
aside that, dry conditions are expected across the san francisco
bay area and central coast this afternoon. High temperatures will
be in the 60s along the coast and 70s for inland areas. Compared
to climatology, these highs are about 5 to 15 degrees below what
we would normally expect for a middle late september afternoon.

Winds will be breezy again this afternoon with some gusts along
the coast or higher elevations reaching 30 to 40 mph.

Low temperatures tonight are expected to be chilly once again.

With 850 mb temperatures hovering around 4 to 6 deg c, the north
bay can expect widespread 40s once again for Friday morning some
locations dipping to the mid upper 30s. On Friday we'll begin to
see a gradual and continuous warming trend as an upper level ridge
begins to build in the eastern pacific. Expect Friday's highs to
be about 2 to 5 degrees warmer than today with some communities in
the interior east bay climbing to the upper 70s. Tomorrow also
marks the autumnal equinox, which will occur at 1:02 pm pdt.

One more seasonably cool night is forecast on Saturday morning
with lows in the 40s and 50s. The building pacific ridge will
allow for 500 mb heights to continue to rise through the afternoon
and even into next week. Consequently, we'll watch temperatures
go from below normal back to above normal by Sunday with
widespread 80s emerging for inland areas and even parts of the
south bay. The warming will continue into early next week with 90s
starting to appear back on the map. With the north to
northeasterly flow, do expect drying conditions with decreasing
afternoon relative humidities by the second half of the weekend
and early next week. This will lead to increased fire weather
concerns across parts of central and northern california.

Aviation As of 10:55 am pdt Thursday for 18z tafs...

postfrontal environment bringing well mixed marine layer and
widespreadVFR CIGS this morning. Unstable postfrontal airmass is
firing some shallow convection over the higher terrain over the
south bay, east bay, santa lucia mountains and santa cruz
mountains. A few sprinkles possible today in these areas if
convection deepens, however this is unlikely. Otherwise, breezy
onshore winds forecast today, with sust winds 10-20 kt, with peak
gusts 20 to 30 kt. Some high clouds will arrive late today. Dirty
feed of sct-bkn AOA 2000-4000 ft agl will bring intermittent MVFR
cigs in a window from 10-18z fri, depending on location. High
confidence for today, low confidence on exact details for tomorrow
mornings dirty feed.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR. Sustained onshore winds 15 to 20 kt, gusts
25 to 30 kt. MVFR CIGS possible Fri morning from 12-17z with dirty
onshore feed as trough shifts through.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR. Shallow convection distant south
and east with few-sct at 3000 to 5000 ft agl. Breezy onshore winds
10 to 15 kt with gusts up to 20kt possible, locally stronger along
the immediate coastline. Intermittent MVFR CIGS posbl 12 to 18z
fri W sct-bkn from 2000-4000 ft.

Marine As of 1:03 pm pdt Thursday... Increasing northwest winds
today as a trough moves through the region. Winds subside
slightly late tonight through the weekend. Northwest swell will
continue to decrease through the coming days while steep wind
waves continue through Friday.

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.
