250 pm pdt Sat mar 25 2017

Synopsis Partly cloudy and dry through midday Sunday. The next
weak cold front moves into the north bay Sunday afternoon with
showers spreading southward through the bay area and central coast
Sunday night before ending by sunrise Monday morning. Cool and
breezy Monday afternoon, then high pressure builds with a warming
and drying trend next week.

Discussion As of 2:50 pm pdt Saturday... Skies are partly
cloudy this afternoon with afternoon readings from the upper 50s
at the coast to mid 60s inland. Clouds will dissipate as the sun
goes down but before sunrise high clouds will start to increase
across the north bay and keep overnight lows in the 40s.

Looks like Sunday morning will start with increasing high clouds
that will make for a chilly Sunday morning as a weak cold front
associated with pretty cold air aloft will approach the region.

Model trends have been drier with the next system and it now looks
like some light rain or showers will break out in the north bay
Sunday afternoon and then spread southward through the bay area
and central coast Sunday night. Rain totals look light, about 0.10
to 0.25 on average with lower amounts for the rain shadowed inland
valleys.

All showers end end before 12z Monday morning but a cool airmass
will be in place with sub 540 dm thickness values in place over
the bay area Monday morning. Skies will turn partly cloudy by
Monday afternoon but there could be some blustery winds off the
ocean Monday afternoon as a strong surface pressure gradient sets
up across the state. Its getting to be our windy time of year near
the coast as cool spring time storms blow in.

A warming and drying trend is forecast Tuesday through much of
next week. Although the 12z ECMWF did throw a wrinkle in things by
taking an inside slider for next Thursday and pulling it farther
west. The main impacts under this scenario would be for the sierra
and central valley but would also bring cooler weather back to the
bay area. Will monitor the trends with that system over the coming
days but as the calendar approaches april it'll be harder to get
sustained storm cycles again.

Aviation As of 10:45 am pdt Saturday... For 18z tafs.VFR
conditions prevailing with some patchy MVFR cigs. Light winds
expected this morning before picking up to about 10-20 kt this
afternoon. Expecting clouds to scatter this afternoon before
returning tonight and lowering into the morning.

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

Sfo bridge approach... Same as ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR with periods of MVFR CIGS in the
morning and light winds.

Marine As of 02:31 pm pdt Saturday... Generally light winds and
moderate seas across the waters through tonight. Winds south of pt
sur and over northern monterey bay are expected to strengthen
throughout the day. On Sunday, winds over the northern waters will
increase and turn southerly as a weak cold front approaches.

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.
