Synopsis Rain showers will develop after midnight as an
cold weather system moves in from the north. In addition gusty
west to northwest winds will develop near the coast after
midnight. Showers and isolated thunderstorms are forecast for
Sunday along with unseasonably cool daytime temperatures. Dry but
cool conditions are forecast for memorial day. A gradual warming
trend is expected early next week with temperatures expected to
return to near normal by midweek.

Discussion As of 9:05 pm pdt Saturday... An unseasonably cold
upper low is currently centered just off the coast of central
oregon. A frontal boundary moving out ahead of the low center is
already spreading rain into northern california as far south as
mendocino county. Based on latest model data, rain in our area is
forecast to begin late tonight, but extrapolation of satellite and
radar data would bring rain into our area as early as midnight.

In any event, expect shower activity to develop overnight as the
initial boundary moves through. In addition, west to northwest
winds are expected to increase around midnight and become locally
gusty in the early morning hours of Sunday, mainly in coastal
areas. Gusts up to 40 mph are possible near the ocean and through
coastal gaps from about 2 am until mid morning. Winds are expected
to subside by late Sunday morning.

Scattered showers will continue through the day Sunday as the cold
upper low tracks south directly across the bay area. Isolated
thunderstorms are a definite possibility on Sunday considering
the combination of an unseasonably cold airmass aloft and strong
surface heating due to the late may Sun angle. The 00z nam
forecasts 500 mb temperatures to drop as low as minus 28 deg c by
early Sunday afternoon - a temperature that would be considered
quite cold for mid winter. The cold air aloft will also likely
mean small hail in some of the heavier showers and isolated
thunderstorms.

High temperatures on Sunday are forecast to mostly range from the
mid 50s to mid 60s... With cooler readings expected in the hills.

These temperatures will be as much as 20 degrees cooler than
normal for late may. Snow levels are projected to drop as low as
4500 feet on Sunday and so light snowfall accumulation is possible
on the higher peaks and ridges of the santa lucia mountains in
monterey county. There may even be brief light snow at the summit
mount hamilton in the bay area.

Precipitation is expected to taper off from north to south during
the late afternoon and evening hours of Sunday as the upper low
moves off to our southeast. Nearly all shower activity is expected
to end by midnight Sunday night. Rainfall totals with this system
are forecast to be a quarter inch or less in most locations.

However, some locations in the southern half of our forecast area
could see as much as a half inch, and even locally more in the
southern diablo range or santa lucias.

The upper low is forecast to be centered near las vegas by late
Sunday night and no longer pose a threat for precipitation in our
area. Therefore, memorial day is expected to be a dry day across
our region. Temperatures will begin to moderate on Monday, but
still be much cooler than seasonal averages.

Gradual warming is expected during the first half of next week as
the longwave trough position shifts to our east. Temperatures may
climb back close to normal by midweek. Longer range models
maintain dry weather through the end of next week and into next
weekend with temperatures remaining near, to slightly below,
normal.

Aviation As of 10:55 pm pdt Saturday... Leading comma cloud
shield of the approaching unseasonably cold upper low is now
moving rapidly southward through the northern half of the
district. All terminals already have or are near MVFR ceilings
except ksts. Very unusual weather circumstances for this time of
year, and forecast to bring gusty onshore winds Sunday morning,
periods of -shra and shra tonight and tomorrow, and even a
possibility of some thunderstorms and small hail. Primary impacts
look to be south of san francisco during the day on Sunday.

Vicinity of ksfo... MVFR ceiling has already established and is
expected to continue through the night and Sunday morning. With
the approaching storm system, expect winds to actually increase
significantly out of the west during the late night and morning
hours, becoming moderately strong and gusty, along with
developing rain showers.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... MVFR ceilings have established and are
expected to prevail through the night and Wednesday morning. Risk
of lowering to ifr however is considered to be pretty low. With
the approaching storm system, expect winds to strengthen out of
the west during the late night and morning hours, becoming
moderately strong. A few light rain showers have already been
reported at kmry. Showers will become more widespread and
numerous later tonight, continuing into Sunday along with the
possibility of thunderstorms and small hail.

Marine As of 8:54 pm pdt Saturday... Gusty northwest winds will
continue through the night and into Sunday, with gale-force winds
over the northern outer waters tonight. Scattered showers and
isolated thunderstorms are possible beginning early Sunday
morning. Moderate northwest swell will continue through the
weekend with steep choppy seas generated by the gusty winds.

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.
