237 pm pdt Wed mar 22 2017

Synopsis Scattered showers along with a few thunderstorms can
be expected into the early evening hours. The next storm system
is projected to impact the region late week. Widespread rainfall
and stronger winds return to the northern portion of the region
late Thursday and will spread southward during the day Friday. Dry
conditions return for most of Saturday with another weak system
forecast to push through starting Saturday night. Dry weather and
warmer temperatures are then likely next week.

Discussion As of 3:00 pm pdt Wednesday... Kmux radar shows
scattered showers continuing across our region -- especially for
the southern third of the cwa. Returns indicate a few moderate
cells so would expect a few are dropping small hail. Showers will
greatly diminish once the Sun GOES down, and additional
accumulations will mostly be under a tenth.

Dry weather will return for tonight through the majority of
Thursday before another system from the north moves through and
brings widespread rainfall back into the picture. Models have been
advertising this system for nearly a week and the latest guidance
has only slightly wavered from previous runs. Now looks like rain
will move into the north bay Thursday night, down to sf bay Friday
morning and to monterey bay starting around noon. However, the
main story will be the moderate to heavy band of rain associated
with a surface front that will go through later than the initial
round of rain. That band could produce high rain rates for a brief
period possibly leading to some urban and small stream issues. At
the same time southerly winds will be on the increase as the front
approaches. Gusts in many urban locations of 25 to 35 mph can be
expected. Values to 50 mph are possible above 1,500 feet. Guidance
has slightly trended downward so at this time do not expect to
issue wind advisories.

Rainfall amounts have only slightly changed from previous forecast
packages. Still looks that the best ivt numbers (and longest
duration) will focus on the north bay with widespread 1.5-3"
expected (locally 4+" for the north bay mountains). Similar values
can be expected for the sc mountains plus the santa lucias.

Around sf bay generally 2/3" to 1.5" is forecast with mostly less
than 2/3" from the santa clara valley southward.

Behind the front scattered showers are possible into early
Saturday. This will be followed quickly by another system that
will again move north-to-south late Saturday night through
Sunday. This feature will be the weakest of the week and rainfall
totals should be generally under 1/2" for most urban locations.

A ridge of high pressure will build behind that system and bring
warmer and drier conditions back to our region for most of next
week and possibly through the following week.

Aviation As of 10:50 am pdt Wednesday... Expect to see a trend
towards gradually improving ceilings, visibilities, and fewer rain
showers today. The bulk of the rain activity has now shifted
eastward into the central valley, however, isolated to scattered
rain showers could continue into the afternoon (primarily for
east bay and monterey bay regions). Winds will become breezy this
afternoon, especially around the san francisco bay. Model data
indicating potential for 2000-3000 ft CIGS overnight.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR. Onshore winds 10-20kt. Occasional gust to
25-30kt possible this afternoon.

Sfo bridge approach... Same as ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... PatchworkVFR/MVFR due to lowered
ceilings. Some rain showers will move across the monterey bay
terminals through late morning into the early afternoon.

Marine As of 02:24 pm pdt Wednesday... Increasing northwest
winds through Thursday morning. Winds will weaken then turn
southerly ahead of the next system through the day Thursday.

Strong south to southwest winds will then prevail as a storm
system moves across the coastal waters. High winds and seas can
be expected Friday as the front moves through.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
