New AVIATION, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 1106 AM PST Sat Feb 24 2024

Fair weather conditions will continue through the weekend. A weak system will move through on Monday, bringing light rain mainly south of the Golden Gate. The middle of the week will be dry before more significant rain arrives heading into next weekend.

SHORT TERM
(This afternoon through Sunday)
Issued at 1106 AM PST Sat Feb 24 2024

Ridge of high pressure aloft will persist this evening and tonight, while an area of low pressure spins ~1000 miles offshore the CA coast. Weak high pressure continues to dominate the weather in CA, resulting in light winds and seasonably warmer overnight temps in the 40s-50s (warmer near the water).

High pressure will continue to support widespread subsidence and stable conditions. High resolution models are in good agreement that the Monterey Bay coastal areas will see an influx of stratus and potential fog late tonight into early Sunday morning, where confidence is higher compared to areas further north, ie the Bay Area. The reason being that high clouds look to build in over NorCal and weak offshore flow persists across the lower levels tonight, while the Central Coast will remain mostly clear overnight and flow near the surface turns more onshore. How dense and widespread fog may be is still lower confidence, so will have to watch closely overnight.

Low pressure over the E Pacific will continue to slowly move east.
By Sunday afternoon, this low will flatten out the ridge over northern and central California, bringing cooler temperatures.
Influence of this low will continue to grow heading into Monday. See long term discussion for more details on potential rain chances.

LONG TERM
(Sunday night through next Friday)
Issued at 1106 AM PST Sat Feb 24 2024

Monday:

The combination of an encroaching low pressure system in the east Pacific and a cold front moving in from the north will bring disturbed weather through the day Monday. Impacts still look to be limited to gusty winds, some light rain south of the Golden Gate, and the arrival of cooler temperatures. Winds will increase through the day, with gusts potentially reaching 20 mph by the evening. Rain amounts are holding steady with a tenth of an inch or less for most areas and up to a quarter inch in the Santa Lucias and Santa Cruz Mountains.

Tuesday and Wednesday:

High pressure will bring dry conditions, northerly winds, and cooler temperatures. Look for highs in the upper 50s to around 60, with lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s, or roughly 5 degrees lower than normal for this time of year. The North Bay Valleys are flirting with frost advisory criteria on Tuesday morning (min temp below 36F).

Thursday and Friday:

A colder system begins to take aim at California by Thursday.
This system is supported in the upper levels by a meridional 140kt jet stream with a direct path from Alaska to northern California. A leading surface cold front will first reach NorCal by Thursday morning. The potential for rain continues through Friday as the associated surface low continues to dive from SE Alaska to the Pacific Northwest. The interaction between this low and subtropical high pressure in the Eastern Pacific will support strong NW winds and building surf. The storm total qpf estimates have been increasing, but rain looks to be spread out over several days. GEFS and ECMWF ensemble guidance are both suggesting roughly 1-2" for the lowlands from Thursday through Sunday, with the majority of the rain falling between Friday and Saturday.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 359 PM PST Sat Feb 24 2024

VFR with light to moderate winds, predominately with a onshore direction. VFR is expected to prevail through the TAF period for most terminals, except North Bay and Monterey Bay terminals. Models suggest MVFR conditions for both areas with chances of IFR overnight into the early morning hours. Some models hint at MVFR conditions over SF Bay terminals, but with low confidence and lack of model agreement as well as an weak offshore flow, lower ceilings were left out the TAFs at this moment. Expect a return of onshore flow for most terminals Sunday afternoon.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR expected to prevail through the TAF period with light onshore winds. Chance for MVFR ceilings near 15Z but low confidence at this moment. Winds are expected to turn offshore early Sunday morning, but will remain light to moderate.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...VFR with moderate onshore winds. Expect winds to become lighter into the night, with a change of direction to a S/SE flow. Ceilings are expected to lower tonight to MVFR conditions, but moderate confidence on exact ceiling heights. VFR will return near 17-18Z.

MARINE
(Tonight through next Thursday)
Issued at 359 PM PST Sat Feb 24 2024
