national weather service san francisco bay area
152 pm pdt Wed apr 26 2017

Synopsis Isolated showers across the region will continue to
diminish this afternoon as a weak frontal system pushes further
inland. Dry weather returns for Thursday as high pressure builds
over the eastern pacific. Further warming of daytime temperatures
will then be likely through the weekend and potentially into early
next week as high pressure strengthens along the california
coast.

Discussion As of 01:51 pm pdt Wednesday... Very light
precipitation continues to be reported early this afternoon
across portions of the region, mainly in/around san mateo county.

Rainfall from earlier today generally added up only to a few
hundredths of an inch or so with some higher elevations picking up
around 1/10". Should see chances for light rain showers to
diminish through the remainder of the day as the weak system
pushes further south and inland. Low clouds will likely linger
into tonight with temperatures only falling into the lower 50s for
most locations while upper 40s are possible in the north bay and
in the hills.

A warming trend will then get underway beginning on Thursday,
especially across the north bay where cooler conditions exist this
afternoon. With clearing skies by late week, temperatures will
warm a few more degrees on Friday as a ridge builds over the
eastern pacific. Meanwhile, an upper level low is forecast to
develop and move into the four corners region Thursday into Friday
and will result in the tightening of the surface pressure
gradient along the coast. This will result in breezy northerly
winds from Thursday into Friday, especially in the hills with
gusts of 35 to 40 mph possible.

By the upcoming weekend, the ridge of high pressure aloft will
become the dominate feature and allow for additional warming.

Daytime temperatures will likely warm into the 70s to lower 80s
inland while the typically cooler coastal areas approach the 70
degree mark. The latest forecast guidance now suggest the ridge
will continue to build and shift inland into the west coast by
early next week. The result will be weak offshore flow at times,
especially for inland areas, with more widespread 80s for daytime
maximum temperatures.

Aviation As of 10:33 am pdt Thursday... Dynamic forecast,
especially in the first 12 hours of the forecast. A mix of ifr to
MVFR conditions will persist and impact all terminals this
morning. A few lingering showers will be possible through early
this afternoon. Do expect a gradual improvement as the winds
increase. MVFR toVFR will gradually develop late tonight and
early Thursday.

Vicinity of ksfo... CIGS 700-1200 feet will lingering for koak and
ksfo through roughly 20z. Waiting for an uptick in the winds,
which will help to lift cigs/vis. West winds generally 10-20kt
with gusts up to 25kt possible. MVFR toVFR will persist
overnight.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... MVFR conditions. Light onshore winds,
gusting to 15-20kt by this afternoon. Ifr CIGS tonight.

Marine As of 08:45 am pdt Wednesday... West and northwest winds
will persist over the coastal waters with locally stronger winds
near the big sur coast. Northwest winds increase tonight across
the coastal waters as high pressure builds offshore. Strong winds
and steep fresh swell will then persist through the remainder of
the week.

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.
