Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 441 PM PDT Mon Jun 1 2020

SYNOPSIS. A warming trend will begin today and become more robust Tuesday into Wednesday with interior locations warming to well above seasonal averages. Temperatures trend cooler late in the week with the potential for unsettled weather by the upcoming weekend.

DISCUSSION. as of 01:33 PM PDT Monday . Morning low clouds have dissipated for the most part with the exception of Monterey southward to Big Sur. Low cloud dissipation in those areas are being slowed by the overcast high clouds streaming to the northeast. Daytime heating and a little bit of moisture has also resulted in a few afternoon cu popping in the Gabilan Range. Temperatures today have warmed over yesterday as indicated by the lastest 24 hour trend. Even though it's warmer and the first day of meteorological summer it will likely end up near or slight below normal for temperatures today.

The next 48 hours will be a different story as it will definitely feel like summer. A highly amplified pattern at 500 mb with strong high pressure to the east and a deepening/retrograding upper low to the southwest. As the upper low moves farther to the southwest the high pressure currently over the Desert Southwest will build westward in California. The building ridge will kick off a robust warming trend with 850mb temps initially 20-22C on Tuesday and then 22-25C on Wednesday. The warm airmass will result in near record to record heat with Wednesday being the warmest day. Similar to the last round of heat, lack of noticeable offshore flow and lingering onshore flow will keep coastal areas from seeing any major heat impacts. Daytime temperatures for inland areas are forecast to range from the 90s to near 102 Tuesday/Wednesday. The San Francisco Bay shoreline and Santa Cruz County coast could warm to the mid 80s and lower 90s on Tuesday/Wednesday. For San Francisco itself, the Downtown/Bayside could warm to the lower 80s while the Pacific coastal side will peak in the lower 70s. Other coastal areas should remain relatively mild (70s to around 80) compared to inland areas given light onshore flow. Interesting to note that the warmest temperatures near the coast will be on Tuesday while interior areas will be warmest on Wednesday. The model ensemble envelop has interior portions reaching 105 deg on Wednesday. Not confidence on reaching that, but trended forecast warmer. There will not be a lot of relief at night either with lows in the 50s/60s/ Higher elevations will remain milder and in the 70s and possibly low 80s. All that being said, low to moderate Heat Risk impacts will be possible on Tuesday, but more widespread moderate Heat Risk impacts on Wednesday for the interior. A Heat Advisory was issued for Wednesday to highlight potential Heat Risk concerns. As always, the temperature battleground will be between the coast and interior with large temperature spreads.

Unlike the last heat event this round of heat appears to be only two days. The ridge breaks down on by Thursday as the upper low begins to move slowly inland. Minor cooling across the interior Thursday, but widespread cooling on Friday. Cannot rule out an isolated shower as the low moves inland Friday, but moisture seems lacking.

There also remains the potential for unsettled, wet weather conditions from late Friday into Saturday, yet confidence remains low for widespread precipitation at this time.

AVIATION. As of 4:41 PM PDT Monday . Warmer air aloft is compressing the marine layer while a light drier north to northeast flow develops tonight. Clouds are reforming in patches along the coast and may impact the MRY Bay Area terminals but high confidence of VFR conditions in the SFO Bay Area.

Vicinity of KSFO . VFR with high clouds. West to northwest winds 15-20 kt decreasing after 04Z.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . Patchy stratus developing in the MRY Bay. MVFR cigs spreading into MRY after 02Z and into SNS after 04Z. Early clearing expected Tuesday morning. Northwest winds 10-12 kt decreasing after 03Z.

MARINE. as of 04:32 PM PDT Monday . Moderate to fresh northwest conditions will continue through tonight then begin to ease. A mix of short period northwesterly and long period southwesterly waves will maintain a mixed sea state through the week.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Tngt. SCA . Pt Arena to Pt Reyes 0-10 nm until 9 PM SCA . Pigeon Pt to Pt Pinos 0-10 nm until 9 PM SCA . Pt Arena to Pigeon Pt 10-60 nm SCA . Pt Pinos to Pt Piedras Blancas 0-10 nm until 3 AM

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.
