1029 pm pdt Sun may 19 2019

Synopsis Scattered showers dissipating through the evening
hours then dry weather returns late tonight and into Monday. A
cold system dropping in from the north will bring renewed shower
chances from Monday night through Tuesday evening. Drier weather
is forecast later in the week, but temperatures will remain cooler
than normal.

Discussion As of 8:35 pm pdt Sunday... Scattered showers will
slowly diminish through the evening with the loss of daytime
surface heating. The cold core upper level low responsible for
instability will reach the four corners by Monday evening.

High temperatures today were more fit for winter season weather
especially in the north bay with highs mostly topping out only in
the upper 50s. Both 850 mb and 500 mb temperatures are within a
couple degrees celsius of equaling the all time recorded minimums
for late may on all oakland upper air soundings for the period of
record 1948-2014 per spc's sounding climatology page. Any snow on
the high peaks of the central coast is noteworthy for late may,
less so for the sierra nevada crest. Essentially we're seeing an
extension of an active to very active 2018-2019 cool season northern
hemispheric long wave pattern and the outlook in the 8 to 10 day 500
mb mean height forecasts indicates a similar scenario continues.

Prev discussion As of 01:38 pm pdt Sunday... Afternoon kmux radar
imagery pretty much says it all - widely scattered showers and
thunderstorms across the bay area. The showers thunderstorms are
thanks to an unstable atmosphere associated with a cold core upper
low. Cold upper low is also keeping temperatures below normal
this afternoon. In fact, many locations are currently running
10-20 degrees below normal for late may. Snow in the sierra is not
that uncommon in may or june for that matter. Snow in may for the
central coast is definitely noteworthy. No official confirmation
yet, but observations show temps in the mid 30s (5k ft) and the pt
sur profiler puts snow levels around 4,900 feet. Precip that
passes over the higher peaks above big sur could fall as snow or
rain snow mix this afternoon.

For the rest of the day - scattered showers thunderstorms will
continue this afternoon through early tonight as the upper low
slowly drifts southeast across the state. It will be a chilly
night across the bay area with lows in the 40s to lower 50s -
upper 30s higher peaks. Given the ample low level moisture
wouldn't be surprised to see some patchy fog tomorrow morning.

A break in the action early Monday before another system will
bring precip chances back to the bay area Monday evening through
Tuesday. The tail end of a cold front will drop south across the
region bringing rain initially to the north bay Monday evening
before moving south overnight and into Tuesday. Rainfall amounts
will be much less than the Sunday system - a few hundredths to a
quarter of an inch. Scattered showers will then linger Tuesday
into early Wednesday as the associated low pressure system move
southward. Not much in the way of QPF with the low pressure
either.

For the most part drier weather late Wednesday into early Friday
as the upper low moves farther inland toward the desert
southwest. A broad upper trough does remain over the region
keeping cooler below normal weather in place. Precip chances
return again late in the week next weekend as weak disturbance
rounds the base of the retrograding trough. Simply put, low
confidence, but precip chances will linger in the extended with
below normal temperatures.

Aviation As of 10:30 pm pdt Sunday... Shower activity is winding
down in the sfo bay area while residual showers will continue in
the mry bay area through 10-12z. Plenty of low level moisture
remains so we could see some areas of MVFR CIGS early Monday
morning as well as patchy fog in the north bay valleys. An upper
level low will bring increasing clouds and west winds to the area
Monday night.

Vicinity of ksfo... In the short term CIGS remaining 4000-5000
feet. A lower level inversion layer will develop late tonight
which could bring CIGS down to 1500-2500 feet after 12z.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Scattered showers through 10-12z.VFR MVFR
cigs with bases between 2500-4000 feet through Monday midmorning.

Marine As of 10:23 pm pdt Sunday... High pressure is about 1000
miles west of monterey. A low pressure will move into the oregon
coast Monday night and Tuesday. The high will build towards the
coast after the low passes. Winds will remain light west to
northwest through Monday night then increase on Tuesday and
Wednesday. Large swells generated by the last strorm system will
create hazardous conditions particularly for smaller vessels.

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.
