Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 449 PM PDT Sat May 30 2020

SYNOPSIS. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue through late afternoon as an area of low pressure passes across the Bay Area. Precipitation is expected to end by this evening as the low shifts north of the area. Seasonable to slightly below normal temperatures are forecast for Sunday into Monday, along with dry conditions. Midweek warming is then likely, especially inland, although the magnitude of the warming is uncertain at this time.

DISCUSSION. As of 1:35 PM PDT Saturday . The center of an upper low is currently passing directly over the SF Bay Area as it continues to move to the northeast. KMUX radar indicates shower activity has been increasing since late morning, especially across interior portions of the East Bay where heaviest showers are currently located. In addition, an isolated thunderstorm recently developed over Henry Coe State Park in eastern Santa Clara County and a cloud flash was recently detected near Clayton in Contra Costa County. Isolated thunderstorms will likely continue for the remainder of the afternoon.

Rain totals from last night and today have generally been less than a tenth of an inch. The exception is in the Santa Lucia Mountains near the Big Sur Coast. Upslope precipitation enhancement near the Big Sur Coast has resulted in rain totals of between a quarter and a half inch. One location in far southwest Monterey County (Three Peaks) has picked up nearly an inch of rain.

The upper low is forecast to accelerate to the northeast by late this afternoon and most models indicate shower activity will quickly come to an end by early evening. However, the latest HRRR keeps isolated pockets of light rain near the coast well into the evening hours. Considerable low level moisture left over from this system will likely result in widespread low cloud cover overnight.

The upper low will have moved well to our northeast by Sunday, and dry weather is expected to return to all areas. However, temperatures will remain slightly cooler than normal through Monday as the next trough deepens offshore along 130W. Also, residual low level moisture and onshore flow may mean persistent low cloud cover in coastal areas into the afternoon hours.

The trough will continue to deepen offshore and form a cutoff low off the southern California coast by Tuesday. It is at this point when the models diverge significantly on temperatures. The ECMWF, which develops the cutoff low farther offshore compared to the GFS, and therefore develops higher highs and a warmer airmass over California, forecasts significantly warmer temperatures than the GFS from Tuesday through Thursday. The model temperatures differences peak on Wednesday when the ECMWF MOS forecast high temperatures are anywhere from 10 to 15 degrees warmer than the GFS MOS guidance. The model blend (NBM) temperatures are in between, as would be expected, but slightly favor the warmer ECMWF. The NBM temperatures are probably the best option for now.

In the longer range, models agree that another trough will approach from the west late in the week, ejecting the cutoff low to the east. The latest GFS develops precip across the far southern portion of our area late on Thursday as the upper low moves inland across southern California. Rain chances then develop across the northern portion of our area next weekend as that next trough moves in.

AVIATION. as of 4:48 PM PDT Saturday . for 00z TAFs. Scattered showery activity is ongoing around the Bay Area, but the heaviest of rainfall is done. Lingering showers will continue for the North Bay as the system moves northeastward out of our region. Winds have already begun to switch to the northwest behind the center of low pressure and will continue to do so through the evening. Cloud cover will remain overnight. Most terminals will be MVFR, with isolated areas becoming IFR. VFR returns Sunday afternoon, with clouds remaining in the area above 3000 ft AGL. Winds will be more predominantly onshore and breezy in the afternoon.

Vicinity of KSFO . With the exception of a few low clouds, conditions are VFR with strong southerly winds. Scatter showers remain east of the terminal, and are decreasing. Lingering shower activity is expect tonight in the North Bay as the system moves northeast. Winds will slowly shift to the west through the evening, before easing overnight. Expect lowering cigs after 9z for MVFR conditions overnight. Cigs will lift above 3000 feet after 18z Sunday, but expect cloud cover to linger. Winds will be out of the northwest and breezy in the afternoon.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . VFR with clouds bases above 3500 feet. A few weak showers are over the ocean, but not expected to impact terminals overnight. Cigs will lower to MVFR after 4z, with IFR cigs possible early Sunday morning. A return to VFR Sunday afternoon as onshore winds return with a few stronger gusts in the Salinas Valley tomorrow.

MARINE. as of 01:56 PM PDT Saturday . Low pressure west of San Francisco will bring scattered showers and possible thunderstorms through the afternoon hours. Moderate southerly winds along the inner waters will turn southwest tonight and decrease. Northwest winds will increase Sunday and Sunday night. A mixed northwest swell and a building southwest swell will impact the waters through the weekend.

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.
