1048 pm pst Tue jan 16 2018

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 8:51 pm pst Tuesday... A few showers fell
across the north bay over the last 6 hours resulting in a few
tips of the bucket here and there. Atlas peak and hawkeye both
reported 0.02" while oak ridge received 0.03". While doppler
radar continues to pick up a few returns over the north bay there
hasn't been any precip reported over the last hour. A stray shower
cannot be ruled out but chances will continue to diminish
overnight. Mild and dry conditions are forecast for Wednesday as
weak ridging prevails across the region.

A pattern shift is expected Wednesday night as the next in a
series of storms sweeps across the region. This next system is
anticipated to approach the north bay Wednesday with showers
possible as early as Wednesday evening. The main rain band will
push through the north bay late Wednesday night into early
Thursday morning. Rain will spread southward into the greater bay
area Thursday morning leading to a wet morning commute.

From previous discussion... 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 10:48 pm pst Tuesday... The air is saturated to
nearly saturated per area METAR and mesowest observations showing
widespread air and dewpoint temperatures upper 40s to the 50s this
evening. Lower-mid level thermal and geopotential height ridging
over the bay area tonight is resulting in increased subsidence
trapping increasing amounts of stratus and fog near the surface.

This has been resulting in increasing coverage of lifr vlifr cigs
and visibilities in particular along the coast through this evening.

Cooler air from the surface to the 925 mb level continues to drain
in from the northwest tonight and Wednesday while a slow moving
warm front approx 400 miles west of the bay area will eventually
reach our coastal waters Wednesday evening. Newly arriving ecmwf
model output this evening indicates this warm front will move eastward
over the forecast area late Wednesday night into Thursday. In the
interim very widely spotty light rain tonight, then a little more
organized light rain arrives Wednesday evening and night. Nw-ne winds
will be mainly light.

Vicinity of ksfo... MVFR ifr tonight. A saturated air mass tonight
and Wednesday morning is making for a not very optimistic TAF outlook
into Wednesday.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... 1 4 mile visibilities reported around the
monterey bay this evening. Lifr vlifr tonight and Wednesday morning.

Improvement in CIGS and visibilities will probably be slow going
Wednesday. Low confidence MVFR returns Wednesday afternoon and
evening.

Marine As of 9:58 pm pst Tuesday... A high pressure ridge will
remain stationary over the california coastal waters tonight and
Wednesday then slowly drift southward and weaken Thursday. A deep
low pressure system 1,000 miles west of oregon this evening will
move northeastward into the gulf of alaska Wednesday and Wednesday
night becoming nearly stationary off the british columbia coast
through late week. A 1032 mb high over the central pacific will
strengthen as it moves eastward and settles over the eastern
pacific late this week and weekend. Very large swell, the largest
swell of this season so far, will impact beaches mid to late week.
