SYNOPSIS
Issued at 240 AM PST Wed Feb 21 2024

Showers gradually tapering off today. Dry conditions are expected for the remainder of this week with unsettled conditions returning by Saturday night. This weekend's rain appears to be beneficial and not overly impactful.

SHORT TERM
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 323 AM PST Wed Feb 21 2024

A quasi-stationary long wave trough is over the California offshore waters, through late week to early next week the long wave trough will retrogress back near 130W longitude i.e. approx 400 miles west of the Bay Area. Over our forecast area 700 mb to 500 mb thermal and height troughing resulting in widely scattered to scattered showers continues early this morning. Not all locations are still getting wet weather, satellite also shows partial clearing; overall cooling per 24 hour trends due to large scale troughing, rain cooled air and nocturnal radiative cooling is resulting in a few patches of fog, including dense fog with surface visibility less than 1/4 mile. Essentially one more 500 mb short wave vorticity trough to our west over the CA coastal waters exits the aforementioned long wave trough, the short wave moving to our east by late morning. Post 500 mb vorticity trough, temps at the 500 mb level will then gradually warm reducing layer instability from the ground up to approx 700 mb. For the most part expect residual mainly very low topped widely scattered to scattered showers through morning, by late morning, showers may still tap surface based solar heating while the aforementioned transition takes place today, showers are otherwise expected to fully diminish by sunset today with the loss of surface warming.

Tonight 500 mb thermal and height ridging develop, large scale sinking resulting in increasing stability via development of a subsidence temperature inversion. Widespread dry weather tonight, however nocturnal cooling will result in patchy fog overnight and Thursday morning.

LONG TERM
(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 323 AM PST Wed Feb 21 2024

It was mentioned in the short term discussion that a long wave trough will retrogress back near 130W longitude, this long wave trough will be the focus for another storm developing far out at sea late this week and weekend. This storm will not be close enough to bring either wet or windy weather to our forecast area in the near to early medium term; recent GEFS and EPS qpf mean forecasts have trended drier for the weekend. The storm will however still have a chance to entrain subtropical moisture while stationary far out at sea and it should be closely watched for overall residence time while potentially drawing in additional subtropical water vapor. Beginning near the 120 hour (5 days out) forecast the low is forecast to begin merging with a newly arriving mid/high latitude open wave 500 mb trough forecast to reach the Pacific Northwest Sunday-Monday then the Intermountain West Tuesday. Current model forecasts are indicating a period of light rain developing in our forecast area, though not until Sunday- Monday, this is due to eventual merging of aforementioned low pressure systems. The strength of the mid/high latitude open wave 500 mb trough caught up in the polar jet stream and the overall mid-latitude influences may help limit precipitation with this system here in our forecast area, though still warrants close monitoring.

AVIATION
(12Z TAFS)
Issued at 324 AM PST Wed Feb 21 2024

Currently seeing just a few scattered rain showers across the region, rain chances will continue to diminish through the morning.
Widespread VFR will prevail by this afternoon with only STS and potentially MRY and SNS looking to return to MVFR before the end of the TAF period.

Vicinity of SFO...Currently VFR with light southwesterly flow. VFR through the TAF period; however, there will likely be a scattered deck of low clouds over the terminal into the late morning hours.
Winds will be southwesterly throughout the day before becoming southeasterly in the early morning hours of Thursday.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...Currently MVFR at MRY and VFR at SNS with both terminals experiencing breezy drainage flow. Winds become onshore by mid-morning before returning to drainage flow overnight.

MARINE
(Tonight through next Sunday)
Issued at 253 AM PST Wed Feb 21 2024

Currently seeing just a few scattered rain showers over the waters, rain chances will continue to diminish through the morning. Aside from a less than 30% percent chance for precipitation Thursday afternoon into Friday morning in the northwesternmost zone, fair weather will prevail the rest of the work week. Winds will be light and westerly today as a moderate period westerly swell continues to move through the waters.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
CA...Flood Watch until 10 AM PST this morning for CAZ006.

PZ...None.
