Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 1007 PM PST Sun Feb 28 2021

SYNOPSIS. Dry and mild weather conditions are forecast to persist across the region through most of the work week ahead. Rain chances develop by late in the week or by the early part of next weekend.

DISCUSSION. As of 8:50 PM PST Sunday . Winds in the hills decreased throughout the day and by this evening winds were light across our entire region. In addition, skies were mostly clear. Clear skies, light winds, and dry air will allow overnight temps to dip into the mid and upper 30s in the interior valleys once again. 40s are forecast for most other locations.

Evening satellite imagery shows a weather system a few hundred miles offshore from the Pacific Northwest. Models have come into relatively good agreement on the evolution of this system over the next few days. The system is forecast to drop due south late tonight and Monday and form a closed low well offshore beyond 130W. The low will continue to sink south to 30N by Tuesday morning before changing course and tracking eastward, eventually moving inland over southern California by Wednesday evening. This system's forecast track will mean all precipitation will remain either well offshore, or well to our south over SoCal. Thus, our forecast remains dry through most of the week. Daytime temperatures are expected to remain near seasonal averages, or slightly above average, through most of the work week. Some high clouds are likely from late Tuesday through Wednesday as the upper low drops south offshore, otherwise mostly clear skies are likely to prevail.

Another system, currently developing over the Bering Sea, is forecast to track to the southeast and potentially bring precipitation to our area sometime between late Friday and Saturday. The ECMWF (both deterministic and ensemble members) is more bullish in forecasting widespread precipitation in our area with this system compared to the GFS. Nearly all of the ensemble output during this time frame indicates light rainfall amounts, so there doesn't seem to be much potential for significant rainfall.

In the longer range, the ECMWF and GFS ensemble mean both forecast the longwave trough position to remain centered near the West Coast from next weekend through the following week, which is encouraging from the standpoint of potentially seeing a period of persistent wet weather. However, it should be noted that most ensemble forecast members from both models generate only light amounts of rainfall in any 24 hour period. Still, it's encouraging to see the potential for a wet weather pattern, and that a few of the ensemble members generate heavier rainfall amounts at times.

AVIATION. as of 10:07 PM PST Sunday . For the 06Z TAFs. VFR across terminals with light to calm winds. Clear skies observed on night satellite, with stratus developing about 100 mi offshore. No impacts expected over terminals with dry onshore flow continuing overnight. Tomorrow, a system a few hundred miles offshore will pass to the south, inducing light to breezy southerly winds over the Bay Area and Central Coast. Skies will remain mostly clear, other than a few high clouds. VFR continues through the end of the TAF period. Vicinity of KSFO . VFR. Light WNW winds under 10 kt through the evening, becoming light and variable overnight. Light southerly winds develop Monday afternoon. VFR through the taf period. SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . VFR with light to calm winds. Overnight, winds become ESE and breezy in the Salinas Valley. A few high clouds and a bit breezy tomorrow afternoon. Continued VFR through the taf period.

MARINE. as of 08:09 PM PST Sunday . Winds out of the northwest remain light to breezy and switching to southerly from south-to- north overnight into Monday morning. Swell period increases with the arrival of a weak swell, otherwise a northwest swell prevails through the week.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Tngt. None.
