Synopsis A weak weather system will spread light rainfall to
most of our region later the afternoon into the overnight hours.

Showers will mostly end by Monday morning. Expect decreasing
clouds on Monday with brisk afternoon and evening northwest winds.

High pressure will build back to our region and provide warmer
days on Tuesday and Wednesday along with fewer clouds. A system
will move to our east on Thursday and bring windier conditions
along with colder temperatures.

Discussion As of 2:00 pm pdt Sunday... Multiple minor updates to
the forecast today to try to get the timing down as a weak system
will move through later. This morning kmux was indicating
possible light rain, however no tips of the buckets were noted, so
now appears it was either just clouds or virga. Anyway, main band
of rain associated with the system is still forecast to go
through over the next 6 to 12 hours and bring light rainfall to
most parts of our cwa. Timing has it moving to the north bay late
this afternoon, to sf bay by early in the evening, and down to
monterey bay by mid-evening. Rain will switch over to showers
behind the front with precipitation possible overnight. Totals
still look like 1/4" to 1/2" for the north bay mountains, 1/10" to
1/4" for the rest of the north bay plus the sc mountains, with
less than .15" for the remainder of the cwa.

Breezy northwesterly winds can be expected on Monday as a ridge of
high pressure begins to build back into our region. Highest values
should be along the coast and coastal ranges. Winds will start to
abate by the evening as the gradient slackens. Tuesday and
Wednesday are shaping up to be quiet weather days with the ridge
in place. Temperatures will return to the 60s and 70s. A few lower
80s are not of out the question in monterey county on Wednesday.

The pattern will change again on Thursday as an inside slider
moves into the intermountain region. Biggest question for a few
days has been if the low will be far enough west to produce
showers or if it will stay more to the east. 12z operational and
ensemble forecasts are trending farther to the east and now favor
drier solutions. Still could be a few showers over the north bay
mountains and east bay hills, so those were kept in the forecast.

The bigger impact will be another round of cooler
temperatures(highs mostly upper 50s to upper 60s) along with
breezy conditions. 925 mb speeds off to the ECMWF are forecast to
be up to 40 kt at the coast. Those values will likely increase
with the higher resolution models as it gets closer.

The ridge will rebuild starting on Friday and should keep dry
weather through at least all of next weekend. Temperatures will
warm back into the 60s and 70s.

Aviation As of 10:52 am pdt Sunday... Increasing cloud cover
expected as the main frontal band approaches the region. A stray
shower cannot be ruled out ahead of the front however showers
associated with the front are not expected to arrive until later
this afternoon and evening. See tafs for detailed timing. Cigs
will begin to lower this afternoon and evening as the front moves
from north to south. Winds will increase slightly this evening with
moderate localized gusts possible.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR. Light rain forecast to begin around 02z Sunday
evening with MVFR CIGS overnight.

Sfo bridge approach... Same as ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR. Light rain forecast to begin around
03z Sunday evening with MVFR CIGS overnight.

Marine As of 11:12 am pdt Sunday... Generally light winds and
moderate seas expected across the waters through most of today.

Northwest winds will increase over the waters by Monday as high
pressure builds over the eastern pacific.

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.
