159 pm pst Sat feb 24 2018

Synopsis Partly cloudy skies with scattered showers across the
north bay this afternoon. Otherwise, some clearing is expected
tonight with chilly low temps. Dry weather and slightly warmer
temperatures are expected through the weekend. Cooler and
unsettled weather is expected to return by early next week with
another system bringing rain to the area later next week.

Discussion As of 01:50 pm pst Saturday... A little afternoon
excitement as a few showers popped up over the north bay.

Spotters general public reported a few showers near santa rosa,
healdsburg and windsor. For what it's worth, local WRF and hrrr
kept showers off the coast this afternoon. That definitely didn't
pan out and therefore updated forecast to better reflect reality.

Do expect this showers to gradually dissipate over the next hour
or so.

No frost or freeze headline needed for tonight. A slight increase
in cloud cover will limited cooling potential. Temps tonight are
forecast to be a few warmer than last night. That being said,
overnight lows will still be rather chilly and in the upper 20s to
mid 30s for most locations. Bay shoreline and coast in the low 40s
for lows.

Weak ridging ahead of the next storm system will allow for warmer
weather on Sunday. In fact, it could be some of the warmest temps
of the last several days with highs hitting 60 plus across the
interior.

By Sunday night the next system approaching from the north will
begin to impact the bay area. Showers will move in from N to S and
likely impact the Monday morning commute. Snow levels will
initially be greater than 3k feet, but then gradually drop through
the day. Winter precip will be possible over the higher peaks of
the forecast area, similar to earlier this week. Precip will end
from NW to SE Monday night into Tuesday. Rainfall amounts are
still generally low and mainly a few hundredths to a few tenths.

Dry weather returns briefly on Tuesday with a slight warm up, but
the next storm is waiting in the wings. For several model runs
(deterministic ensemble) now a potent low pressure has been
forecast to impact the pac NW Wednesday into Thursday. The
associated cold front is also forecast to move into norcal by
Thursday morning. The front pushes through the bay area Thursday
with post frontal showers lingering well into Friday. Not an
atmospheric river event per se, but a better moisture tap than we
have seen over the last week. Rainfall amounts could exceed an
inch across the north bay and one quarter to one half elsewhere.

Details will likely be sorted out between now and then, but
initial thinking is a wetter scenario. It should be noted that
this set up will be warmer with higher snow levels and initially
impacting only the santa lucias. The snow levels will drop behind
the front.

Lastly, the mjo has been on track to swing into phase 2 3, albeit
weak, for some time now. Climo charts for phase 2 3 indicate
wetter results for ca. The shift to phase 2 3 corresponds with feb
28 march 01 time frame, which fits the approaching front on the
medium range models.

Aviation As of 9:47 am pst Saturday for 18z tafs. Skies
currentlyVFR across the region but a weak boundary is over
mendocino county and about to bring some clouds into the north
bay. Wind boundary currently has southeast winds at koak and ksjc
while west winds have already developed at ksfo. The buoys are
strong wnw so expect ksjc and koak to begin shifting shortly.

Vicinity of ksfo... Increasing wnw winds this afternoon and
evening (gusts to around 28kt) with some MVFR CIGS possible with
increasing onshore flow as weak boundary passes the region.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR conditions expected through mid-
morning, thenVFR MVFR for the afternoon as increasing clouds
arrive. Generally light offshore winds in the morning will become
onshore in the afternoon evening around 10-20 kt.

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.
