Synopsis A weak front will bring isolated light showers to
santa cruz county and areas north through early this afternoon.

Another weak system may bring a few showers to our northern areas
late Tuesday night into early Wednesday. However, most areas will
remain dry and cool through Thursday. A better chance of
widespread rain will develop late in the work week and for the
weekend.

Discussion As of 03:30 am pst Monday... Water vapor imagery
continues to show a trough of low pressure moving into the west
coast this morning, with the associated weak cold front draping
across northern california at this time. Radar imagery shows a
line of light rain showers extending from chico back through santa
rosa to point reyes and beyond. So far, rainfall totals have been
less than impressive with only a hundredth or two tipping the
bucket. Models continue to indicate that this line of showers will
fall apart as it sags southward this morning, so not expecting
more than a few hundredths at best, with any showers likely
limited to santa cruz county and areas northward. However, there
may be enough moisture to wet the roads for the morning commute.

A transitory ridge on Tuesday will give way to another weak
disturbance on Tuesday night and early Wednesday. At this point it
time, it appears that it will only bring a few light showers at
best to our far northern counties late Tuesday night and Wednesday
morning. High pressure will then build back across the region for
Wednesday and Thursday, with weak offshore flow and warmer
conditions developing.

Another system will then take aim at northern california for
Friday. This system looks relatively weak as well, but northern
areas should see some light rain once again. Models are hinting
that this system will open the door for a potentially deeper and
wetter disturbance for Sunday into Monday. At this point in time,
this system looks like the region's best chance of widespread
rain, but considering it falls in the day 7 and 8 timeframes,
confidence is still somewhat low on the actual strength.

Therefore, will need to continue to monitor the model trends over
the next several days. Palmer

Aviation As of 4:00 am pst Monday... For 12z tafs. A mixed bag
for aviation this morning with the TAF sites ranging anywhere
fromVFR to lifr conditions as of the 12z TAF publication time. A
weak cold front is gradually approaching the area and has brought
with it plenty of bkn ovc mid high clouds that are blanketing much
of the region. These high clouds present a challenge as it makes
it difficult to use satellite in order to discern the cloud fog
coverage near the surface. This front will also bring a slight
chance of rain showers to the area, mainly from sjc and points
north. Expect at least sct bkn clouds throughout much of the day
given the approaching front and the present environment. Overall
low medium confidence.

Vicinity of ksfo... Very challenging forecast, especially in the
short-term with the present low clouds over the terminal and the
approaching front. Webcams and satellite are not too helpful right
now given the time of night and also because the high clouds
obscuring the low clouds. Nearby half moon bay and san carlos have
been bouncing back and forth between ifr andVFR ceilings, and
across the bay in oakland ceilings have not been a issue. With all
that said, there is rather low confidence on how long these low
ceilings will exactly stay over the terminal. As the front
arrives after sunrise, the chance of light rain showers will
increase. Winds are forecast to remain fairly light through the
day, even after the frontal passage.

Sfo bridge approach... As mentioned in the vicinity of the terminal
section, it's a challenging forecast in the short-term with the
high clouds obscuring the view near the surface. San carlos and
moffett field are reportingVFR conditions, so think as of the 12z
taf issuance time the low clouds are primarily confined to near
the terminal.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR conditions are generally expected to
prevail at both sns and mry. An approaching front may bring about
a brief period of MVFR ceilings by the late morning or early
afternoon.

Marine As of 03:34 am pst Monday... A cold front will gradually
pass over the waters through the morning and afternoon hours, and
bring with it a chance of light rain showers. Northwest winds
will increase in the wake of the frontal passage then diminish on
Wednesday. Moderate northwest swell will continue before a larger
northwest swell arrives towards the end of week.

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.
