Synopsis A few early morning showers can be expected today,
otherwise mostly dry through early Sunday. Rain chances will
return by Sunday afternoon and continue through Sunday night with
a few showers lingering into early Monday. Otherwise, dry and
mild weather is expected from Monday through the remainder of next
week.

Discussion As of 2:25 am pdt Saturday... Latest radar scans
continue to show light showers moving across monterey and san
benito counties, with another batch of showers forming just off
the san mateo county coast an moving to the east-southeast. Expect
this shower activity to gradually taper off as the system exits
to the east, with only a chance of showers into the morning. The
rest of the day should be mostly dry with highs in the upper 50s
to mid 60s.

The dry weather will persist into early Sunday. Then, a
relatively weak weather system is forecast to move across northern
california bringing more light rain to portions of the district
late Sunday and Sunday night. The 00z GFS brings rain into the
north bay counties by late afternoon, then down to northern
monterey county before midnight. The system is progged to quickly
move through to the east and be gone by dawn. The ECMWF lingers
precip over the southern counties a little longer into Monday, but
for the most part, most of Monday should be dry.

High pressure is then forecast to build in over the west by
Tuesday keeping the district dry through the remainder of the
forecast period. There is a slight possibility of a weak system
brushing extreme northern california by Wednesday night/early
Thursday that may bring a slight chance of precipitation, but for
now most of the rainfall should remain to the north.

Aviation As of 10:55 pm pdt Friday... Residual scattered showers
persist tonight especially over the north central coast. Local
ifr/lifr/vlifr tonight and Saturday morning as the surface to
lower levels remain quite moist. Drying in the mid-upper levels
tonight and Saturday support fog development especially if and
where lower clouds happen to partially clear.

A secondary slow moving and dry cool front slides SE across the bay
area Saturday evening. Preceding this front it's a low confidence
cloud cover forecast though due to a lack of near surface inversions
if there is cloud cover best guess would be that primarily MVFR/vfr
will prevail. Post frontal drier air intrusion should help keepVFR
going Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Vicinity of ksfo... MVFR/vfr. Wind light onshore tonight. 15-20 knots
onshore winds developing Saturday from 21z to 04z Sunday.

Sfo bridge approach... Same as ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Light southeast to south winds with showers
continuing most of tonight. MVFR/vfr except local ifr tonight.

Marine As of 10:37 pm pdt Friday... Expect light northwest winds
tonight in the wake of a cool frontal boundary. Southerly winds are
forecast to return Sunday as the next system approaches. Fresh short
period swells will make for choppy conditions over the coastal waters
through the weekend.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
