national weather service san francisco bay area
940 am pst Fri feb 23 2018

Synopsis Mostly sunny skies will prevail around the bay area
today. Another very cool night is forecast for Friday night. Dry
weather and slightly warmer temperatures are expected over the
weekend. Cooler, unsettled weather is expected to return by early
next week with another system bringing rain to the area later next
week.

Discussion As of 07:51 am pst Friday... Decreased winds and
clear skies led to a rather chilly start this morning. Morning
lows ranged from the 20s across the interior and inland valleys
with 30s low 40s closer to the coast and major urban centers. The
morning lows are running about 10 to 18 degrees colder this
morning than Thursday morning. Today's weather will feature sunny
skies, but below normal high temperatures. Highs will be in the
50s and 40s across the highest peaks.

No morning update planned at this time.

Afternoon forecast package will focus on chilly overnight lows
this weekend and rain (mt snow) next week.

Prev discussion As of 2:50 am pst Friday...

dry conditions and a bit of a warming trend are expected over the
weekend, although morning lows on Saturday will be chilly once
again. With weak high pressure building along the coast, by
Sunday, the high temperatures are forecast to warm to the lower
60s in warmest areas.

Another upper trough is then progged to drop south into northern
california from british columbia early next week bringing rain
chances to the area by Monday. Once again, a limited moisture
source will keep qpfs low on the low side with less than a quarter
of an inch expected through Tuesday morning. Another system near
the end of the workweek could produce more rain for the area with
the trough farther west over the pacific than the latest systems.

There are differences in model solutions with this system, though,
with the latest runs of the GFS keeping precip farther to the
north through the following weekend.

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.
