Synopsis Mostly cloudy and mainly dry conditions are forecast to
persist into Wednesday ahead of our next approaching storm system.

This system will bring rain to the region late Wednesday into
Thursday with lingering post frontal showers. Cooler temperatures
are forecast over the weekend with dry weather for much of the
region before another system arrives late Sunday or Monday.

Discussion As of 01:52 pm pst Tuesday... Light rain continues
to be reported over the north bay this afternoon, generally only a
few hundredths of an inch per hour. Otherwise, cloudy skies
prevail region-wide in wake of a weak system that pushed through
during the past 24 hours. Generally dry conditions will prevail
tonight with any precipitation forecast to stay north of the
region. Little change is anticipated for Wednesday with much of
the region dry and temperatures in the upper 50s across the
northern half of the region while lower 70s are possible for
interior portions of the central coast.

Light rain will develop late Wednesday over the north bay as another
weak system approaches from the north. This system does appear to
produce a bit more precipitation than the one that moved through
last night today. However, it too will be quick moving and result in
rainfall amounts of 1 3" to 1 5" for the north bay with isolated
amounts near 1.00" in the coastal ranges of that region. To the
south, most urban areas will see less than 1 3" with even less than
1 4" for the monterey bay region and inland valleys. Coastal ranges
along the central coast can expect around 1 4" to 1 3" with isolated
amounts up to 1 2" through Thursday. Post frontal showers are then
expected late Thursday into Friday as a more unstable and colder air
mass advects southward into the region. At this point, snow levels
are forecast to drop to or below 3,500 feet with light snow
accumulation possible in the highest peaks across the region. Also
cannot rule out a thunderstorm or two over the northern coastal
waters Thursday night into Friday.

With the colder air mass in place, overnight morning temperatures
are likely to fall into the 30s and lower 40s for most urban areas.

While widespread freezing conditions are unlikely, these conditions
may impact pets and vulnerable populations. Mostly dry conditions
expected for Saturday outside of light rain possible across the
north bay ahead of our next storm system.

There continues to be difference and inconsistencies in the medium
range forecast models with respect to the next system due to arrive
Sunday into Monday. The latest ECMWF has trended much drier with a
more progressive system sweeping through. The GFS remains a bit
wetter, yet too moves the system through from north to south Sunday
night into Monday. The canadian solution stalls the system over
northern california Sunday night into Monday before dropping
southward and weakening on Tuesday. Thus, will keep rain chances in
the extended with low confidence on details at this time.

Aviation As of 9:40 am pst Tuesday... Wide range of cat this
morning with ample low level moisture and passing showers - lifr
toVFR. Given recent trends, webcams and satellite decided to keep
more pessimistic forecast through this afternoon. Some of the
guidance keeps it an all day low cig event. Conf is low. Even if
there is some lifting later, CIGS and some br hz will likely
return tonight.

Overall conf is low to medium.

Vicinity of ksfo... MVFR CIGS through 20z with poss vsby at 5-6sm.

Cigs return tonight with some vsby again.

Sfo bridge approach... Same as ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Lingering fog around sns through 18-19z.

Will bring CIGS back tonight, but conf is low.

Marine As of 09:39 am pst Tuesday... Light to moderate winds
will prevail today as high pressure remains off the coast. Winds
will switch southerly late tonight and Wednesday as a low pressure
system develops off the british columbia coast and pushes the
high south. Large swells will impact the beaches through early
tonight before decreasing. A larger swell with long period will
arrive Thursday.

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.
