Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 331 PM PST Sun Nov 28 2021

SYNOPSIS.

High pressure will control our weather through next week. Expect light winds, cool mornings, and warm daytime temperatures.

DISCUSSION. as of 01:48 PM PST Sunday . The view from approximately 22,000 miles above the earth's surface (aka GOES Satellite) shows a mostly cloud free California. A very large upper level ridge anchored over California has led to a cloud free day for the second day in a row. Ample insolation has also resulted in another afternoon of mild temperatures. Latest 24 hour trend shows many locations running close to or slightly above yesterday's temperatures. High temperatures this afternoon will once again top out in the 60s and 70s. A few interior spots in Monterey county will even reach the low 80s.

Tonight through the upcoming work week: In short, the seven day looks mild and dry for the Bay Area. The large upper ridge remains mainly over the region and peaks mid-week. Today's guidance shows the longwave pattern taking on a Rex Block set up (high pressure to the north and low pressure to the south) this week as well. In other words, not a lot of movement in the upper atmosphere yielding little day to day variability in our local weather. Highs will be in the 60s and 70s with a few far interior spots in the lower 80s. Given the clear skies overnight lows will be cool, especially sheltered inland valleys.

Now for the all important question, when will it rain? Long range continues to tease rain chances, but when and where keeps changing. The same is true with the latest 12Z run regarding rain chances. Deterministic runs show some rain chances returning December 6/7. Unfortunately, the long wave pattern shows a possible inside slider scenario, which usually isn't a big rain maker for us. Starting to sound like a broken record, but we'll have to wait and see.

AVIATION. as of 03:31 PM PST Sunday . For the 00z TAFs. Stratus clouds are slowly rebuilding over the ocean and moving southward. Despite that, clear skies and VFR abound over the land area. Winds are mostly light and variable with a few spots onshore around 10 kts. There remains a chance for low clouds around coastal terminals in the overnight. Best chances remain in the North Bay, but can rule out the stratus pushing into the Monterey Bay either. Confidence is still low, but will be re-evaluated. VFR on Monday with better chances for cloud intrusion

Vicinity of KSFO . VFR. Breezy winds for a brief period after 00Z, but subsiding over night. A FEW low clouds may crop up around the terminal with mist and haze Monday morning, but still expecting VFR conditions through the night lasting into Monday afternoon. Onshore winds will increase Monday night with better chances for 10 to 15 knot breezes. Potential for stratus clouds to move into the SF Bay Monday night into Tuesday morning.

KSFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay . Currently VFR, however we are monitoring the stratus moving down the coastline. It is moving slow, so if it does make it to the bay, it will likely impact terminals early Monday morning. Best chances for low clouds impacts would be KMRY. However, no model is currently showing the clouds at the terminal, so confidence remains low, but will be monitored. Winds remain light, with breezier conditions in the Salinas Valley. Wind direction will flip back to offshore overnight night. VFR on Monday with breezy onshore winds.

MARINE. as of 02:05 PM PST Sunday . Northwest swell with a moderate period continues into the work week. Northerly to northwesterly winds will remain mostly light into this evening then increase over the coastal waters Monday and Tuesday with gusts reaching 25 to 30 kts.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Tngt. NONE.
