Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 1030 AM PST Fri Nov 22 2019

SYNOPSIS. Temperatures remain seasonable today with values expected to be similar to yesterday. Winds will switch to light and offshore keeping conditions dry over the Bay Area. Stronger, dry offshore flow is expected Monday before the switch midweek as colder conditions with unsettled weather is expected to develop over the region as early as Tuesday of next week and continue through Thanksgiving, likely impacting holiday travel.

DISCUSSION. as of 08:59 AM PST Friday . A very weak upper level ridge builds over the Bay Area and the Central California coast Friday. Temperatures will remain consistent with high temperatures to remain in the 60s, similar to Thursday, and last through the weekend. Overnight lows are expected in the upper 30s to mid 40s allowing patchy frost in isolated locations to appear.

Winds will switch over to offshore ushering drier air over the Bay Area this weekend. Winds will reach their maximum on Monday particularly in the North Bay Hills and East Bay Hills. It will be monitored closely as fire weather concerns remain elevated as fuels remain dry, but due to model inconsistency confidence remains low.

By late Tuesday, the pattern changes as a short wave trough moves through the Bay Area and Central Coast. Models have been consistent in bringing widespread rain midweek and through the Thanksgiving holiday. Rain could potentially be heavy, particularly late on Tuesday as a cold front moves through the region. Temperatures are forecast to drop where high temperatures only reach the 50s in most areas, with colder values in elevated locations.

AVIATION. as of 10:30 AM PST Friday . For 18z tafs. Stubborn low clouds and fog near KSFO and KSNS cleared by 17z. Rest of this afternoon and tonight look vfr with clear skies and light offshore winds. Some concern for patchy haze/fog around sunrise Saturday as light east winds develop. Any cigs/haze should be isolated and lift quickly by 17z Saturday. Will show some tempo groups for now.

Vicinity of KSFO . Skies have cleared. Expect VFR this afternoon and evening. Low confidence for some patchy fog/haze around sunrise Saturday.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . VFR this afternoon and evening. Increasing southeast winds Salinas Valley should keep skies vfr overnight into Saturday morning.

MARINE. as of 9:00 AM PST Friday . Friday will see low pressure slowly move east and higher pressure will develop Saturday. Easterly winds will switch to north to northwest tonight. A long- period northwest swell will arrive today and continue through the weekend. Winds will increase late Sunday or Monday as a strong storm approaches.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
