Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 826 AM PST Tue Jan 28 2020

SYNOPSIS. Light rain will be possible over the North Bay and as far south as San Francisco through early afternoon. Dry conditions are then forecast region-wide through the remainder of the week along with a gradual warming trend. Cooling is then forecast by Sunday and into early next week.

DISCUSSION. as of 08:26 AM PST Tuesday . Satellite imagery continues to show high level clouds just ahead of a weak front moving through the area as well as some patchy lower clouds. Radar has captured some light showers across the North Bay for much of this morning while observations recorded precipitation as far south as Oakland and San Francisco. Thus far, rainfall totals have been light, as expected, with a few hundredths to around a tenth of an inch along the coast of Sonoma County. Chances of light showers will continue into the early afternoon with areas south of the San Mateo coastline still expected to remain dry.

Temperatures across the region this morning are a few to several degrees warmer than this time yesterday as cloud cover overnight has prevent further cooling. Most locations are currently in the upper 40s to low 50s. Highs this afternoon are expected in the upper 50s to low 60s. Patchy low clouds may once again linger into the afternoon across the Bay Area after the system moves through. Forecast remains on track this morning with a warming trend anticipated for the rest of the week and into the start of the weekend before temperatures cool back down Sunday and Monday.

PREV DISCUSSION. as of 02:58 AM PST Tuesday . A mid/upper level system approaching the Pacific Northwest has pushed a frontal boundary into Northern California early this morning. Ahead of the boundary, high level clouds continue to advect inland while low level moisture in the boundary layer has also resulted in low clouds over much of the region. This cloud cover has kept temperatures generally in the upper 40s to lower 50s so far this morning.

Light rain associated with the front is being detected by regional radar over Northern California and as far south as Mendocino County. This will continue to advance inland and southward through the morning with light precipitation likely to develop over the North Bay around sunrise and then continue through mid-morning. Light rain may push as far south as San Francisco and the San Mateo coastline before dissipating by early afternoon. Thus, most areas to the south of the aforementioned areas will remain dry today. Areas that do receive rainfall will generally see amounts of one-tenth of an inch or less.

A warming trend will occur through the remainder of the week as high pressure over the eastern Pacific builds inland. With 850 mb temperatures forecast to approach 15 deg C by Friday and Saturday, look for daytime temperatures to be 5 to 10 degrees above seasonal averages. Widespread middle/upper 60s are likely with lower 70s across the interior. Cannot even rule out maximum temperatures reaching into the middle 70s by Sunday afternoon under mainly clear sky conditions.

Temperatures cool region-wide by Sunday and into early next week as the ridge is replaced by a broad mid/upper level trough. However, precipitation will likely remain to the north and east of the region. Longer range outlooks maintain dry weather conditions over much of the region through early February.

AVIATION. as of 4:28 AM PST Tuesday . For 12Z TAFs . A weak frontal boundary will move over the Bay Area and Monterey Bay regions through the day today. This will bring some light rain to many of the terminals in the Bay Area proper and maybe some brief light rain in Monterey. Winds around the front are not forecast to be of any significance either. Behind the front, when the winds shift to come out of the northwest, there may be a brief period when the winds pick up to 10 knots or so, but otherwise they are forecast to remain weak. Tonight into Wednesday morning will be the difficult part. High pressure building across the area in the wake of the front will help to trap some of the low level moisture in the area which could yield some low cigs and vsby issues at some terminals tonight. The TAFs continue to hint at this possibility with STS being the near sure bet of low cigs and vsby tonight.

Vicinity of KSFO . MVFR is starting the morning at SFO and is expected to continue through much of the day as a weak frontal boundary limps through the area. In the wake of the front, residual moisture and building high pressure may cause overnight lowering cigs and vsby. Something that will need to be watched for development. Think of summer type conditions.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . Some passing low cigs in the area this morning are forecast to mix out as a weakening frontal boundary approaches. As the front limps over the area more low cigs are likely. High pressure will build in the wake of the dissipating front, which will cause possible reduction in vsby at Monterey terminal tonight. This will need watching.

MARINE. as of 04:11 AM PST Tuesday . A weak cool front moving across the coastal waters this morning will give way to increasing winds from the north and building short period seas. Conditions will remain elevated through the work week. A Long period northwest swell will arrive later this week.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
