430 am pdt Mon may 20 2019

Synopsis Dry weather conditions are expected through much of the
day ahead of another storm system set to arrive tonight. Look for
light rain to develop late this evening over the north bay and then
across the remainder of the region overnight. Showers will linger
into Tuesday before the return of dry conditions Tuesday night into
Wednesday. Cool and unsettled conditions are likely through the
remainder of the week, yet widspread rainfall appears less likely.

Discussion As of 02:55 am pdt Monday... Isolated showers linger
off of the central coast early this morning as the core of a cold
mid upper level low shifts eastward away from the region.

Expecting a drying trend to continue region-wide through much of
the day with temperatures warming only into the 60s for most
locations this afternoon. A mix of Sun and clouds can also be
expected through the afternoon ahead of the next approaching
weather system.

Another mid upper level storm system is forecast to push inland over
the pacific northwest today with the tail end of a frontal boundary
dropping across the san francisco bay area late this evening and
through the central coast tonight. Light rain will first develop
over the north bay this evening before spreading southward inland
during the overnight hours. Rainfall will generally range from a few
hundredths of an inch to around one-quarter inch through the night.

In wake of the frontal passage, lingering showers will persist into
Tuesday as the core of the mid upper level trough drops southward
over the west coast. The post frontal showers will be mostly
isolated to scattered in nature with the potential for brief
moderate to locally heavy rainfall. Overall, this system will be
weaker and produce less rainfall than the system that moved across
the region this past weekend.

Drier weather is forecast to develop Wednesday and likely to persist
into late week. However, a broad upper trough remains over the
western portion of the country keeping temperatures below seasonal
averages. The best chance for precipitation looks to stay over the
interior portion of the state. Chances for precipitation may return
late in the week and into the upcoming weekend as weak disturbances
round the base of the retrograding trough. Thus, look for cool and
unsettled conditions to persist through the end of the month.

Aviation As of 04:30 am pdt Monday... For 12z tafs. Showers have
mainly ended across the region. Ample low level moisture remains
in place leaving patchy MVFR CIGS and fog in the north bay. Cigs
should become more widely scattered by late this morning. An
upper low will bring increasing clouds and westerly winds to the
area tonight along with some scattered showers. Winds may be gusty
tomorrow morning.

Vicinity of ksfo... Patchy CIGS around the bay area between
2000-4000 ft agl. CIGS may occasionally become bkn this morning
before scattering out by the afternoon. West to southwest winds
through the period becoming gusty tomorrow morning. CIGS will
lower as showers approach this evening.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Showers have mainly ended with patchy
vfr MVFR CIGS 2500-5000 ft through mid morning. CIGS will
redevelop early this evening as showers approach.

Marine As of 02:55 am pdt Monday... Generally light west to
northwest winds will persist over the coastal waters through
tonight before increasing on Tuesday. Winds will then remain
elevated through late this week. Large swells generated by the
last storm system will continue to create hazardous conditions,
particularly for smaller vessels. West to northwest swell will
briefly decrease later today and tonight before building again
Tuesday and Wednesday.

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.
