Synopsis A few early morning showers can be expected today,
otherwise mostly dry through early Sunday. Rain chances will
return by Sunday afternoon and continue through Sunday night with
a few showers lingering into early Monday. Otherwise, dry and
mild weather is expected from Monday through the remainder of next
week.

Discussion As of 2:25 am pdt Saturday... Latest radar scans
continue to show light showers moving across monterey and san
benito counties, with another batch of showers forming just off
the san mateo county coast an moving to the east-southeast. Expect
this shower activity to gradually taper off as the system exits
to the east, with only a chance of showers into the morning. The
rest of the day should be mostly dry with highs in the upper 50s
to mid 60s.

The dry weather will persist into early Sunday. Then, a
relatively weak weather system is forecast to move across northern
california bringing more light rain to portions of the district
late Sunday and Sunday night. The 00z GFS brings rain into the
north bay counties by late afternoon, then down to northern
monterey county before midnight. The system is progged to quickly
move through to the east and be gone by dawn. The ECMWF lingers
precip over the southern counties a little longer into Monday, but
for the most part, most of Monday should be dry.

High pressure is then forecast to build in over the west by
Tuesday keeping the district dry through the remainder of the
forecast period. There is a slight possibility of a weak system
brushing extreme northern california by Wednesday night/early
Thursday that may bring a slight chance of precipitation, but for
now most of the rainfall should remain to the north.

Aviation As of 05:10 am pdt Saturday... Final residual
scattered showers are moving through the southern half of the
district, and resulting in temporary reductions in ceilings and
visibilities to MVFR and ifr. Development of haze and patches of
fog in the valleys is also now occurring across the forecast area,
in the residual moist boundary layer air mass.VFR conditions look
to return to all but possibly monterey bay area terminals by late
morning. Lower than average confidence.

Vicinity of ksfo... PresentVFR conditions considered likely to
continue throughout the day, but can't completely rule out
possible diminishment of CIGS to MVFR during the morning. Onshore
winds increasing to 15-20 knots latter part of the afternoon.

Sfo bridge approach... Same as ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Conditions presently varying rapidly
through the range fromVFR to lifr as final area of showers moves
through. Project MVFR ceilings to generally prevail by around
sunrise, then improving toVFR by late morning to early
afternoon.

Marine As of 03:10 am pdt Saturday... Light winds will prevail
across the waters through tonight, aside from south of pt sur and
over northern monterey bay where they are expected to moderately
strengthen as the day progresses. Then on Sunday, winds over the
northern waters will turn southerly and become somewhat stronger
as a weak cold front approaches.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
