300 am pdt Wed oct 16 2019

Synopsis Late rain will be possible across portions of the region
from tonight into early Thursday morning as a weak cold front sweep
through northern and central california. Cooler, breezy conditions
develop in wake of the frontal passage by Thursday afternoon and
will continue into Friday. A warming and drying trend is then
forecast late in the weekend and into early next week.

Discussion As of 03:00 am pdt Wednesday... Patchy fog (dense at
times) is being reported over the sonoma valley and northern
marin county, down along the san mateo coastline and into the
monterey bay region. This is less widespread compared to yesterday
morning, yet the marine layer remains around 1,200 feet in depth.

Look for a region-wide cooling trend today in advance of an
approaching frontal system. This early season system is brining
widespread rainfall to washington and oregon with rain lightly to
spread into far northwest california later in the day. Light rain
will develop as far south as the north bay late this evening and
then across the san francisco bay area overnight. While pwat
values of 1.50" are advecting inland ahead of this system, the
best mid upper level support will remain to our north. As the
weakening boundary pushes southward into the central coast
Thursday morning, light rain will be possible as far south as the
monterey peninsula during the pre-dawn hours while ending to the
north. Overall, rainfall amounts from this system will be less
than a tenth of an inch for most.

Temperatures will continue on the cooling trend Thursday as a colder
air mass advects southward across the region in wake of the frontal
passage. Brisk northwest winds will also develop and become locally
gusty in the afternoon and evening hours, especially along the coast
and in the hills. The strongest winds are likely to gust to 35 to 40
mph. The cool, breezy conditions will persist into Friday as well,
yet winds will weaken slightly. Another fast-moving system will move
across the pacific northwest and northern california from Friday
night into Saturday morning. This will bring another slight chance
of precipitation to the north bay, yet again rainfall amounts will
be light.

A warming trend is then forecast to begin on Sunday and become more
robust early next week as high pressure builds over the region.

Thus, look for widespread 70s closer to the coast and 80s across the
interior early in the week. Periods of dry, offshore flow will also
be possible across portions of the north bay next week as well.

However, offshore winds are not forecast to be strong and or
widespread. The ensembles indicate above average temperatures are
likely to extend into the latter half of next week as well with high
pressure remaining the dominate weather feature across the region.

Aviation As of 10:44 pm pdt Tuesday... Much less stratus around
the bay area compared to yesterday. Marine layer is fairly well
established at around 1200 feet so still believe stratus will form
later tonight along the sf peninsula and spread into oak and sfo
as well as the north bay valleys. It is more questionable whether
any stratus spreads into sjc and the south bay tonight.

Vicinity of ksfo... MVFR CIGS after 12z with bases around 1000
feet. Clearing after 18z with high clouds moving in.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Ifr CIGS have returned to mry and sns
but most of the mry bay is clear. Therefore may see periods of
scattered clouds through 12z. Clearing after 18z.

Marine As of 03:00 am pdt Wednesday... Light northwest winds
will prevail over the coastal waters through Wednesday. A slight
chance of light rain is possible to parts of the waters on
Wednesday night associated with a passing front. After the frontal
passage, winds will gradually increase. A large northwest swell
is forecast to arrive on Thursday and build into Friday with
forerunners arriving as early as today through early Thursday.
