Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 1006 PM PST Fri Feb 21 2020

SYNOPSIS. A slight chance of light rain showers for the Central Coast into Saturday morning as a system to our south impacts southern California. High pressure redevelops by early next week bringing a continued dry and warm conditions regionwide.

DISCUSSION. as of 08:24 PM PST Friday . The main weather weather item of interest over the next 24 hours continues to be an upper level low pressure system passing to our south. For days now, model guidance and the official forecast have advertised rain chances for the southern half of the forecast area (mainly south of San Jose). The much anticipated rain "event" is turning out to be more of a fizzle. KMUX radar has been active since early this morning with several echoes moving over the Central Coast. Unfortunately, these radar returns are high based and not reaching the ground. The 00Z KOAK sounding indicates a rather dry airmass in place in the lower levels of the atmosphere, which is evaporating the rain. This is further confirmed by the lack of rainfall reports -whether it's from spotters or automated gauges. Hope isn't completely lost though. Models have definitely trended drier on the 00Z run, but as the upper low moves inland rain chances get a boast. Best chance for rain will be later tonight into early Saturday, but mainly focused over Monterey/San Benito. If rain does occur amounts will be light. Once the upper low does finally move inland precip chances will diminish rapidly by Saturday afternoon.

A notable warming and dry trend will develop on Sunday and more so next week. Looks like offshore flow could develop early next with 850 mb temperatures approaching 15C. If it does verify temperatures in the 80s are not out of the question for the interior.

AVIATION. as of 10:00 PM PST Friday . Upper level low off Point Conception will bring a chance of showers to the MRY Bay Area and possibly as far north as SJC but cloud bases will remain in the VFR range. Cooler northwest flow develops on Saturday may produce some afternoon instability cumulus clouds.

Vicinity of KSFO . VFR with high cloudiness. Some afternoon cumulus clouds at 5000 ft may develop. Winds remaining under 10 kt.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . VFR. A chance for showers through 15Z with clouds bases getting as low as 5000 ft.

MARINE. as of 09:48 PM PST Friday . Low pressure just off Point Conception will move into southern California. There is a chance of showers over the southern waters late tonight and Saturday. Northwest winds are increasing over all of the waters as high pressure builds in behind the low. These winds will persist into next week. Expect moderate period northwest swell through early next week. A long period northwest swell is likely mid next week.
