Synopsis for the central california coast and bays including the Monterey bay..Greater farallones...and cordell bank national marine sanctuaries... Generally light to locally moderate west to northwest winds will prevail across the waters through mid-week. Locally breezy winds will persist over the far northern outer waters through Monday morning. Additionally, gusty afternoon and evening winds will funnel through the golden gate gap into the san francisco bay. Monsoonal moisture will advect northward into the waters Monday into Tuesday bringing a slight chance of high based Thunderstorms to the area.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 427 AM PDT Sun Jul 25 2021

SYNOPSIS. Seasonable weather conditions will persist into Sunday. Monsoon moisture rotating out of the Desert Southwest will spread some high clouds and low end potential for showers and isolated thunderstorms across the region from Monday into Tuesday. Long range trends remain seasonably warm and dry through the end of the month.

DISCUSSION. as of 03:00 AM PDT Sunday . Satellite imagery depicts a marine layer along the coast and intruding into the interior valleys so far tonight. The Bodega Bay profiler suggests a marine layer depth around 1200 feet while the Fort Ord profiler is deeper at around 1400 feet. Pressure is down slightly versus 24 hours ago and the pressure gradient field is slanted onshore again early this morning and is being realized through rather gusty winds through the Carquinez Strait and into the Delta (gusts to 32mph as of 2AM observation) as cooler, moister marine air surges inland.

Little change in the synoptic scale pattern, with an extremely broad but relatively low amplitude 588-592dm 500mb high pressure system extending from the western Pacific to the eastern Atlantic with nearly all but New England under its influence. Farther north, the jet stream remains oriented along the Canadian border through around Syracuse New York. Ensemble model clusters suggest this broad stagnant pattern will hold steady through the remainder of the month of July. Water vapor imagery paints quite a contrast in our vicinity under this stagnant ridge, with extremely dry air rotating northward along and just off the California coast in comparison to the extremely moist monsoonal air towards our southeast into the Desert Southwest.

This monsoonal air mass is forecast to rotate clockwise from the PHX-VEGAS corridor towards Southern California before lifting northwestward into our periphery from Sunday into Tuesday. NAM/WRF and multi-model ensemble datasets indicate this monsoonal surge will be anomalously wet perhaps push into the upper 97-99th percentile wettest versus climatology, with broad swaths of >1.25" PWATs and localized bullseyes of much higher values of 1.50-2.00" PWATs. The moisture is also expected to arrive in two bursts and will have different characteristics. The first batch will arrive Sunday and will be suspended higher in the atmosphere and pose less risk for the development of deeper convection due to a lack of dynamic lift and much less impressive moisture field. The second batch will stream in between Monday and into Tuesday and will feature improved dynamic lift from a trailing mid to upper level low pressure disturbance and much deeper moisture field featuring those aforementioned anomalously high PWAT values. MUCAPE values of a few hundred J/Kg are more than enough to kick off convection with either monsoonal plume, but is much more favorable with the second plume Monday afternoon to overnight, primarily over the coastal waters and the North Bay. If showers or thunderstorms develop, they may very briefly start off dry but should transition fairly quickly to become wet given the lower expected cloud bases with the second moisture plume and anomalously high PWAT values. That said, wetting rains are unlikely and if thunderstorms do develop, lightning is often displaced from the rain shaft. The very dry fuels across the interior and at higher elevation could be at risk if struck by lightning and bares close watch. The Sierra Nevada will likely see numerous lightning strikes, and with the ongoing large wildfires there, and maxed out national preparedness levels; it is important we do our parts to prevent further wildfire starts, lightning or not.

In short, no significant change to the forecast package overnight. We continue to carry a 15% chance of showers and thunderstorms for the region, primarily Monday PM into Tuesday AM. Be sure to stay up-to-date via social media and forecast discussions as we progress through the weekend as details will likely evolve.

Otherwise, warmer, drier air will settle into the region in the wake of the monsoonal push Wed-Thu as the broad stagnant ridge expands farther offshore and is expected to push temperatures up to 5 to 12 degrees above normal. Meanwhile, alongshore locations will remain dominated by the marine environment with seasonable conditions.

AVIATION. as of 04:26 AM PDT Sunday . For the 12z TAFs. The marine layer remains at about 1,500 to 1,800 ft AGL per the Fort Ord Profiler. Satellite imagery shows an extensive stratus deck out over the waters with low clouds now settled inland down the valleys and around the San Francisco Bay. MVFR/IFR (locally LIFR) cigs for coastal sites through mid to late morning around 16z-18z. Patchy fog possible across the North Bay into early this morning. VFR conditions this afternoon before low clouds return in the evening. Expect increasing mid to high level clouds throughout the rest of the weekend and into early next week as monsoonal moisture arrives. Light winds this morning, onshore winds this afternoon 10-15 kt with locally higher gusts possible.

Vicinity of KSFO . Satellite shows stratus has filled into the Bay and moved into the terminal with cigs around 1,000 to 1,200 ft AGL. MVFR (possibly IFR) cigs through about 15z-17z before VFR conditions are expected the rest of the afternoon. Low clouds may return late tonight, though confidence is low. W/NW winds this afternoon around 15 kt. Increasing mid/high clouds tonight.

KSFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay . IFR/LIFR conditions to through mid to late morning with clearing expected ~17z-19z. VFR conditions in the afternoon before low clouds return late this afternoon or early this evening. W/NW winds in the afternoon 10-15 kt.

MARINE. as of 02:07 AM PDT Sunday . Generally light to locally moderate west to northwest winds will prevail across the waters through mid-week. Locally breezy winds will persist over the far northern outer waters through Monday morning. Additionally, gusty afternoon and evening winds will funnel through the Golden Gate gap into the San Francisco Bay. Monsoonal moisture will advect northward into the waters Monday into Tuesday bringing a slight chance of high based thunderstorms to the area. Steep northwest waves continue to dominate the sea state at 7 to 9 seconds along with a light southerly swell.
