Synopsis Mostly sunny skies will prevail around the area
today with another chilly night forecast for tonight. 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 08:44 am pst Saturday... Clear skies and
relatively light winds allowed for another frosty night around the
bay area, especially interior valleys. Overnight lows plummeted
to the 20s across the interior with two stations in san benito
reaching the teens. Closer to the coast and major urban centers it
wasn't that cold, but still into the 30s and low 40s. A few
stations, including monterey, did have record lows, but once all
the climate site report later this afternoon there will likely be
other record lows.

After a chilly start, do expect a little bit of a warm up today
compared to Friday. Highs will be in the 50s for most locations
with 40s across the highest peaks. However, those forecast temps
are still 5 to 10 deg below normal.

The freeze warning for interior san benito will expire at 9 am.

No updates planned with current forecast this morning.

Impacts for the afternoon forecast package will focus on active
pattern with two systems bringing precip chances to the region,
mon Tue and Thu fri.

Prev discussion As of 3:08 am pst Saturday... Dry weather will
continue through Sunday as another system drops into the great
basin. Rain will stay east of the district but there may be some
cumulus clouds during the day Saturday, mainly over the eastern
hills. The coldest air will shift further to the east so overnight
lows for Sunday morning are expected to be about 3-5 degrees
warmer.

The next chances of rain for the district are from late Sunday
night into Monday as another storm system drops south along the
west coast. Rainfall amounts are expected to range from one- tenth
of an inch in the valleys to a quarter to a half inch in the
higher terrain. Snow levels will initially be around 3000 feet
then lower to 2500 feet during the day Monday so there could be
some snow on the highest peaks.

Medium range models show potentially wetter weather affecting the
area later in the week with rain beginning Wednesday night and
spreading south through the district on Thursday. Showers to
remain over the area into next weekend as we remain under an
unstable trough pattern.

Aviation As of 3:54 am pst Saturday for 12z Saturday tafs.VFR
conditions are expected through early mid morning, but increasing
moisture around 2,000-5,000 ft agl through the day will make the
forecast challenging. Terminals will generally see the skies go
from skc to sct, and possibly bkn. Additionally, breezy west to
northwest winds are forecast to develop in the afternoon. Local
in-house WRF model suggests winds between 10-20 kt for the typical
wind-prone terminals.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR this early morning with increasing clouds
between 2,000 and 5,000 ft around mid late morning. There remains
uncertainty with the coverage of the clouds and can't rule out the
possibility of a period with MVFR ceilings. Will continue to
monitor and amend as necessary. Light winds in the morning will
become west to northwest around 15 to 20 kt in the afternoon with
higher gusts possible.

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 around 10-20 kt.

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.
