Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 334 PM PST Mon Mar 1 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 02:00 PM PST Monday . GOES-WEST geocolor imagery picking up on faint clouds over the Monterey Bay Peninsula slowly fading away as a deepening cutoff low tracks south and parallel to the California Coast and is evident by mid-level clouds quickly traveling southward at ~140W. This is in stark contrast to the clear skies over nearly the entire State this afternoon, with well-defined snowpack evident all across the Intermountain West from the Sierra to the Wasatch Range. Zooming in on the forecast area, southerly flow has picked up along the coast since dawn owing to the influence from the offshore low. Have also observed some breezy southerly winds at higher elevations this afternoon as a result. Nonetheless, winds will remain light to occasionally breezy at times across the region, with onshore southerly flow promoting cooler temps than in recent days along south-facing portions of the coast this afternoon.

The cutoff low is progged to eventually track towards the southeast over the next couple of days as evidenced by the latest short and mid-range deterministic models. That being said, high confidence for Tuesday and Wednesday that staying well offshore during its passage over our coastal waters, so are not expecting any moisture returns from it. Given recent SREF mean solutions, looking like the bulk of the moisture associated with this system will come ashore over SoCal while its northernmost returns will still, at their closest extent to our CWA, only make it up to extreme southern Monterey County if that. Despite this miss, will be observing cooler, onshore flow through Thursday that will make for max temps along the coast that will be running around the upper-50s to low 60s F, while areas along the Bay Shoreline will max out around the upper- 60s F. Interior valleys will generally break into the low 70s during that timespan as well. Given the lack of cloud cover over the next few days, are expecting overnight radiational cooling to make for cool starts in the low to mid-30s F across the interior valleys with the potential for patchy frost as well.

The upper-level ridge has quickly retrograded towards the northcentral PAC and its axis will continue to track towards Japan through Thursday, leaving an increasingly favorable environment for upper-level troughing to develop across the East Pacific. Following the passage of this cutoff low, upper-level wave energy from the northwest Pacific will transfer into the environment, allowing for an amplification of a low pressure system that will center itself right along ~140W. Increasing confidence regarding the amplification of the upper-level trough, with EC, C, and GFS ensemble members leaning towards our area being within the divergent quadrant of the trough and in the path of the subsequent frontal passage that will occur as the system gradually comes ashore over the weekend. Disagreements lie predominantly with the timing of the initial rain bands and the max intensity of the trough between Friday and Sunday. EC members are leaning towards the amplification of the trough occuring closer to the Coast, which would allow for the system to tap into subtropical moisture more easily and produce slightly higher rainfall rates and totals than what some of the GFS and C members are leaning towards. For now, looking like the earliest the rain band would roll in to the region would be around Friday afternoon, predominantly over the North Bay Coastal Ranges, before gradually moving towards the southeast and across the rest of the CWA through Saturday morning and into Saturday afternoon. Preliminary rainfall totals from this event are ranging from a tenth to a quarter of an inch across the CWA with the highest totals likely along the coastal ranges at around half an inch. Nonetheless, still several days out and owing to the uncertainties, are sure to get a better handle on what those totals will likely wind up being as we get closer to the event.

The shift towards a wet pattern across the Eastern Pacific is coinciding with the negative PNA being observed this week. EC weeklies heavily leaning towards a negative trend at least through the first half of this month, which is promising for the region. Stay tuned.

AVIATION. as of 03:32 PM PST Monday . For the 00Z TAFs. Clear skies for VFR around the Bay Area and the Central Coast. A patch of stratus lingers off the coast, but consistent southerly flow over the ocean keeps the risk of low clouds out of the TAF. Southerly winds remain breezy at this hour, with a few stronger gusts at KLVK and KSJC. Winds are expected to diminish as the sunsets to be light and variable. High clouds creep into the region Tuesday, but remains VFR through the TAF. Winds will switch back to the NW tomorrow and be breezy and a new air mass approaches the coast. Vicinity of KSFO . Southerly winds remain breezy, but are expected to subside after 03Z. Skies will remain SKC-FEW200 tonight, with increasing high clouds Tuesday. Winds will return to the NW tomorrow, and become breezy. SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . VFR with light to breezy winds. Winds will be light overnight becoming breezy Tuesday afternoon. High clouds increase throughout the day tomorrow, but remain aloft.

MARINE. as of 02:46 PM PST Monday . Southerly flow continues, generally light winds except for breezy to locally gusty conditions between Point Sur to Point Pinos this afternoon and evening. Winds will generally remain light this week as a system passes to our south. Northwest swell prevails through the week.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Tngt. None.
