New AVIATION, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 132 PM PST Tue Feb 20 2024

Rain showers will continue into this evening before gradually tapering off Wednesday morning. 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.

UPDATE
Issued at 816 PM PST Tue Feb 20 2024

Very active afternoon and early evening as heavy rain and scattered thunderstorms impacted the Bay Area and Central Coast.
Rainfall was so heavy at times it overwhelmed urban areas leading to flooding on streets and the issuance of a Flash Flood Warning for San Francisco. Additionally, numerous Flood Advisories were also issued as creeks and streams overflowed their banks.
Given the convection nature of precipitation today rainfall amounts varied greatly from less than a tenth to nearly one inch.
While the heaviest rains may have ended there are still flooding impacts across the Sonoma Valley Region. A Flood Warning remains in effect for near the Mark West Creek area. All other Flood Advisories have been allowed to expire.

Rest of this evening/tonight - Radar remains in precip mode monitoring lingering showers over the coastal waters moving inland. This will be the case overnight, lingering showers. Some showers may still be moderate to locally heavy, but not expecting widespread hydro impacts. Therefore, will cancel the flood watch.

No other updates needed...

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Wednesday)
Issued at 132 PM PST Tue Feb 20 2024

Scattered to widespread rain showers and thunderstorms will continue throughout the evening as a low pressure system is deepens off of the Pacific Northwest coast. This feature will shift northeast and eventually move become a cut-off low off of the British Columbia/Pacific Northwest coasts. Any thunderstorms that do develop will be capable of producing brief heavy downpours, lightning, small hail, and a few stronger wind gusts. Rain will begin to tapper off overnight with lingering showers likely to persist over the Bay Area into Wednesday morning.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday night through next Monday)
Issued at 132 PM PST Tue Feb 20 2024

Dry conditions and a gradual warming trend are looking more likely to persist into Saturday. Unsettled conditions return region-wide by Saturday night, yet most rainfall will be "beneficial" and is not expected to result in any widespread flooding concerns. Temperatures trend colder for early next week with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s and lows in the upper 30s to upper 40s.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 949 PM PST Tue Feb 20 2024

Predominantly VFR conditions are expected through the night, though spotty MVFR conditions will exist at a few select terminals as low clouds develop and the last of scattered showers continue to pass through. KSTS terminal may develop IFR conditions in the early morning as fog develops near the terminal. However, confidence on this is only moderate. Any clouds that pass over may inhibit rad cooling, and therefore fog formation. Overall, light winds are expected through the night for most terminals. Into the daytime of Wednesday, VFR prevails for all terminals and winds become more onshore, but remain 10 knots or below.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR through the TAF period, though SCT low clouds may form over the terminal at times. Confidence on maintaining VFR through the night is moderate-high. Winds generally southerly and light overnight, becoming westerly in the afternoon of Wednesday at around 9 knots.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...Light southerly winds and MVFR conditions prevail in the nighttime hours of Tuesday into early Wednesday morning. VFR returns in the mid to late morning Wednesday and lasts through the remainder of the TAF period. Winds onshore in the afternoon Wednesday around 8-9 knots.
