New AVIATION, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 128 PM PST Wed Feb 28 2024

Unsettled weather with rain, chilly temps, and gusty winds begins Thursday, lasting into the weekend. High elevation snow likely this weekend as well. Slightly warmer for the beginning of next week.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Thursday)
Issued at 128 PM PST Wed Feb 28 2024

Not a cloud in sight this afternoon across the Bay Area and Central Coast with temps in the upper 50s to 60s. Not for long, though. Clouds start to roll in overnight tonight ahead of a potent upper low progged to move down from British Columbia into the Western US and linger through the weekend providing the area with several rounds of rain and wind. Temps Thursday are set to be a few degrees cooler than today, but with cloudy skies through much of the day. The first round of rainfall is expected to begin across the area Thursday morning to midday. Amounts initially appear on the lighter side as the storm gets started with totals ranging from 0.5-1.5" (highest in the coastal ranges) between Thursday and Friday morning. Gusty SW winds will also accompany the initial front Thursday midday into the afternoon. Most locations will likely see gusts of 30-35 mph with a few locations along ridgetops and the coast seeing up to 40-45 mph. Gusts decrease overnight into Friday before the next round moves in.

LONG TERM
(Friday through next Tuesday)
Issued at 128 PM PST Wed Feb 28 2024

More rain and wind Friday afternoon with a secondary wave associated with the same storm. Similar in magnitude to Thursday's front, but more prolonged into Saturday as the parent upper low finally makes its way southward into the area.
Additional rainfall Friday and Saturday looks to be on the order of 0.5-2", bringing the storm total to about an inch across lower elevations, 1-2" for coastal areas and higher elevations, and up to 3" for the North Bay mountains and coastal ranges. Snow levels are expected to decrease Saturday morning after the colder air finally filters into the area. Generally down to about 2000' in the North Bay and 2500-3000' further south. Wouldn't expect much in the way of accumulation outside of the areas around the highest peaks such as Mt. St. Helena, Mt. Hamilton, and the crest of the Santa Lucia. Even still, accumulation is only expected to be in the realm of 3-5" tops. Outside of the wind and rain threat, cold overnight temps will set in for the weekend and early portion of next week. Sunday and Monday mornings appear to be the coldest with overnight lows in the low-to-mid 30s across much of the interior and 40s along the coast. A warming trend is expected going into mid next week as guidance is advertising another system moving in off the Pacific, which would bring in a warmer airmass and the next chance for widespread rainfall.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 349 PM PST Wed Feb 28 2024

VFR through the remainder of the evening before ceilings start to lower to MVFR overnight and lasting through the remainder of the TAF period for most terminals except KLVK and KSJC. As the front approaches the region, expect winds to turn S/SE with winds gradually increasing to breezy and gusty towards late Thursday morning/early afternoon. Visibility may lower over KSTS to IFR early Thursday morning, but moderate confidence as models show disagreement. Expect light showers to start early Thursday morning with possible LLWS near SF Bay terminals.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR will continue before transitioning to MVFR conditions overnight. N/NW winds will turn to S/SW as the frontal passage moves closer to the terminal. Winds will see breezy conditions with possible LLWS up to 35 knots early Thursday morning, followed by strong gusty winds in the afternoon. Showers are expected to begin early Thursday morning.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...Expect VFR to continue before MVFR ceilings build overnight. N/NW winds will diminish overnight and will begin to turn S/SW. Winds will start to build to breezy and gusty conditions in the afternoon.

MARINE
(Tonight through next Monday)
Issued at 349 PM PST Wed Feb 28 2024

Breezy northwest winds turning southwesterly overnight Wednesday into Thursday. Unsettled weather returns Thursday and will continue through the weekend with breezy to gusty winds, showers, and wave heights between 15 to 20 feet expected.
