Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 459 AM PDT Sat Jun 12 2021

SYNOPSIS. Low clouds are filling in across the Bay Area this morning with light rain and drizzle along coastal Sonoma County. Low clouds will sluggishly clear during the day, onshore winds ushering low clouds inland each night and morning through early next week. The storm track stays north of the Bay Area keeping temperatures near normal Saturday and Sunday and right through early next week. From Wednesday through Friday strong high pressure building from the desert will bring hot weather to interior valleys while the coast and bays should maintain near or slightly above normal temperatures.

DISCUSSION. as of 4:10 AM PDT Saturday . It's a murky start to the morning with low clouds filling in across the Bay Area with a weakening frontal system arriving from the north, obs show the front has very weak surface pressure falls. The front is accompanied by a plume of water vapor with max precipitable water values greater than 1" along coastal NorCal; dewpoint temperatures have climbed to the 50s at all locations, a signature of higher surface based water vapor. High resolution model forecasts have been unable to resolve the surface to near surface mechanisms subsequently resulting in light rain and drizzle along coastal Sonoma County overnight, amounts have varied between 0.01" and 0.10" from the Sea Ranch to Bodega Bay. 0.01" reported just west of Cazadero and Occidental, while inland to the north late last evening at Ukiah Airport a trace of rain was reported. The main focus of measurable light rain and drizzle has been confined closer to the coastline. With the front settling across our cwa through morning, a few more patches of coastal light rain and/or drizzle, mainly north, is a possibility through daybreak.

Diurnal mixing under a strong June sun angle will help clear the low clouds back to the coastline from late morning to afternoon. High temperatures today climbing a few degrees higher than on Friday, highs today 60s/70s coast side and bay side while far inland will warm to the 80s. Onshore winds usher low clouds inland this evening and Sunday morning, and similarly again expect an inland intrusion Sunday evening and Monday morning. Patchy drizzle at the coast and in the East Bay hills with the onshore winds each night is also a possibility, the NBM is struggling to resolve this.

The high pressure system developing over the Desert Southwest next week will cause increasing 500 mb heights over our cwa with warm to hot inland temperatures mid to late next week. This will bring about increasing heat related risks, particularly over the inland valleys and at elevation in the hills. Please stay tuned to the latest forecasts.

AVIATION. as of 4:55 AM PDT Saturday . For the 12z TAFs. A weak cold front passed over the region overnight and is now exiting the area. MVFR cigs developed along and in the wake of the frontal boundary and is resulting in generally SCT-BKN cigs at 1000-2000 ft across the Bay Area terminals. These cigs will linger through the coastal gaps and into the KOAK/KSFO vicinity into the mid to late morning, while other others should see clearing to FEW/SCT by early to mid morning at the latest. Otherwise, generally light morning winds will become locally breezy by the afternoon, with occasional afternoon to evening gusts 15-25kt possible. For tonight, a marine layer is forecast do develop and bring borderline MVFR/IFR cigs to most coastally influenced locations.

Vicinity of KSFO . Passing frontal boundary will bring SCT/BKN MVFR cigs to the terminal through mid morning Saturday. Breezy onshore winds Saturday afternoon with gusts to around 25kt. Patchy stratus rebuilds offshore and pushes into the vicinity of the terminal after midnight tonight.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . Model data suggested frontal cigs will remain just offshore of KMRY and latest satellite imagery confirms this for now. As such, expecting VFR to continue with med confidence. Winds this morning will be generally light then increase to become briefly breezy midday Saturday. Local WRF & HREF progs return of some patchy stratus cigs to KMRY by 00-01Z SUN.

MARINE. as of 04:54 AM PDT Saturday . Light split flow across the waters today, with southerly winds in the northern outer waters and locally breezy north to northwest winds from Pigeon Point southward through Big Sur. Infrequent gale force gusts are possible from Point Sur and southward by late today into tonight. Lighter winds will lead to less steep northwest seas at 9 to 10 seconds today with a light long period southwest swell across the waters.
