Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 448 PM PDT Sat Mar 28 2020

SYNOPSIS. Scattered showers this afternoon and evening for the Bay Area. A cold front will pass through the area Sunday morning with another round of rainfall lasting through early Sunday afternoon. The low moves east and dry conditions return Sunday night into Monday morning. A weak weather system may bring some light rain to northern Sonoma county Monday otherwise dry high pressure will start to build. The long range forecst calls for dry weather next week with a gradual warming trend back into the upper 60s and 70s.

DISCUSSION. as of 2:00 PM PDT Saturday . Some scattered light rain showers continue across the region this afternoon as daytime heating interacts with abundant moisture and marginal instability. Look for scattered showers through this evening. More weak showers are offshore and will move onshore this evening as well. Satellite shows core of weak upper low out near 39n/129w. As this feature and surface low move onshore Sunday morning there will be an organized band of rain moving through the Bay Area. Rain amounts still look light overall but some brief heavy downpours will accompany the frontal passage Sunday morning through midday or so before precip turns showery once again. Rain totals on average of 0.10-0.25 for valleys with 0.25-0.50 coast and hills (little or no rain interior Monterey/San Benito).

Dry Sunday night but with lingering clouds and enough boundary layer moisture for valley fog to form.

NAM model is insisting that some more light warm advection rains will occur across northern Sonoma Monday afternoon with any precip very light (tenth or less) while the rest of the region dries out.

High pressure builds behind that front Tuesday through next weekend with a noted warming and drying trend and even some possible dry north winds Weds night. Afternoon highs should warm nicely back into the upper 60s to upper 70s away from the coast. Above average confidence for dry conditions through the first weekend in April but some hints that some storms may try and undercut the ridge by around April 6-10th.

AVIATION. as of 4:48 PM PDT Saturday . For 00z tafs. Occasional showers and VFR to MVFR tonight and Sunday morning. VFR returning by early Sunday afternoon.

Vicinity of KSFO . VFR occasionally MVFR tonight, VFR Sunday afternoon and evening. Showers tonight and Sunday.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . VFR occasionally MVFR tonight, VFR Sunday afternoon and evening. Showers tonight and Sunday.

MARINE. as of 4:33 PM PDT Saturday .

Mixed swell will continue with a moderate northwest swell and a light southwesterly swell.

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.
