Synopsis for the central california coast and bays including the Monterey bay..Greater farallones...and cordell bank national marine sanctuaries... A moderately large, longer period northwest swell has arrived and is outperforming model data by a few feet, with swell heights of 10 to 14 feet at roughly 15 to 17 seconds. This wave energy will bring hazardous conditions for small craft vessels, particularly in the surf zone, near shoals, and at harbor entrances with breakers of 15 to 20 feet. This wave energy will gradually subside later today and into tomorrow. Breezy to locally gusty northwest winds will persist during the day over in our outer waters and occasionally along some of our inner water zones.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 1240 PM PDT Thu Oct 28 2021

SYNOPSIS. Warming and drying trend continues into Friday. An approaching cold front late Friday brings cooler conditions over the weekend, but the area looks to remain dry. Early next week a frontal system brings rain chances to the Bay Area, with higher chances in North Bay.

DISCUSSION. as of 12:40 PM PDT Thursday .

This Afternoon through Friday:

A high amplitude mid/upper ridge will support surface high pressure across the region. This will bring us warm and dry conditions. The only concern is for fog/low stratus development late tonight into Friday morning. A consensus of the high-resolution forecast models suggest this potential is greatest for coastal/valley locations in the North Bay, with a few members spilling this over into coastal South Bay locations. Locally dense fog is possible so make sure to allow extra travel time for your morning commute in these areas. Otherwise look for seasonally pleasant temperatures with highs mostly in the upper 60s and 70s.

Saturday and Sunday:

A closed upper low will progress through Northern CA early in the period. While shower chances should generally remain north of our area temperatures should cool as the associated cold front passes through. Highs this weekend should be mostly in the upper 50s and 60s, with some lower 70s possible across southern Monterey County. Lows will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s so a jacket may be in store for those out trick-or-treating this weekend.

Monday through Thursday:

A progressive flow pattern will evolve aloft as a few weather systems impact the area. The first should bring rain chances for late Sunday night into Monday. Rain should first develop over the North Bay before moving southeast with time. Definitely not another historic storm, but it should bring us more in the way of beneficial rainfall.

Another round of rain is possible towards mid to late week. However details in the evolution of the weather pattern are somewhat unclear, so stay tuned for details. As mentioned previously the good thing here is that the long range models are keeping the storm door open for our area.

AVIATION. as of 11:22 AM PDT Thursday . For the 18z TAFs. This morning's fog has been dissipating the last few hours leaving all terminals at VFR this afternoon. Surface winds will be fairly light again today, with maximum winds around 8-12 kts possible. Models such as HREF and HRRR hinting at patchy fog and low clouds again late tonight going into Friday morning, which could impact the North Bay terminals as well as KSFO and KOAK. Confidence on whether or not the fog will stay confined to the water or make it to the aforementioned terminals is still low-to-moderate at this time. Stay tuned for the updated TAF this evening.

Vicinity of KSFO . VFR. Light winds currently but will pick up slightly this afternoon and become more W/NW. VFR expected the rest of the afternoon into the evening. Fog may return again tonight which could bring lowered visbys and potentially cigs under 1000 ft. However, similar to last night/this morning, the fog could stay confined to the coast again with winds being light tonight. Stay tuned for 00z TAF.

KSFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay . VFR. Winds will be ~8-12 kts this afternoon. Winds to shift NW in the coming hours. Stratus may return early tomorrow morning, bringing MVFR conditions and potentially brief IFR with locally dense fog.

MARINE. as of 12:35 PM PDT Thursday . A moderately large, longer period northwest swell has arrived and is outperforming model data by a few feet, with swell heights of 10 to 14 feet at roughly 15 to 17 seconds. This wave energy will bring hazardous conditions for small craft vessels, particularly in the surf zone, near shoals, and at harbor entrances with breakers of 15 to 20 feet. This wave energy will gradually subside later today and into tomorrow. Breezy to locally gusty northwest winds will persist during the day over in our outer waters and occasionally along some of our inner water zones.
