Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 145 PM PDT Sat Apr 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. Light to locally moderate showers will continue this afternoon and tonight as a cold front moves through the region. Showers overnight become a steady rain tomorrow as another system drops down the coast. Locally heavy rain, possible thunderstorms and gusty winds during the day tomorrow. Precipitation becomes showers tomorrow night into Monday as the upper low passes over the region. Showers may linger for the Central Coast Tuesday and Wednesday as the upper low slowly exits the region followed by a warming and drying trend for the second half of next week.

DISCUSSION. as of 01:45 PM PDT Saturday . Radar shows showers continue across the region this afternoon as a cold front moves through. Rainfall amounts have varied with as little as a few hundredths in some locations to over a quarter of an inch near Santa Rosa and along the coastal areas of the North Bay. Showers will continue the rest of the afternoon and this evening before turning into a more steady rainfall tomorrow as another cold front gets ready to pass through the area. The front is expected to reach the North Bay tomorrow morning before moving south of the Bay Area and into the Monterey Region in the late afternoon.

Tomorrow's system will be better organized with more upper level support creating some locally heavier rainfall along with periods of gusty winds and possible thunderstorms. Latest QPF guidance keeps the bulk of the heavier precipitation focused from the Santa Cruz mountains southward to the Santa Lucia's and Big Sur coast while reducing rainfall totals somewhat for areas elsewhere. Generally expect around 0.50"-0.75" for lower elevations and the Bay Area with 0.75"-1.25" around the Monterey Bay and 2-3 inches in the hills of the Central Coast. Locally higher rainfall totals will be possible for some of the Big Sur mountains. There will be a slight chance of thunderstorms across the region tomorrow afternoon through Monday afternoon, though the best chances will be outside of our area as the core of the upper low is still expected to remain offshore. Additionally, expect occasionally gusty winds as the front moves through tomorrow, particularly along the Big Sur Coast south of the Monterey Peninsula. Therefore the Wind Advisory for the southern Monterey Bay, Monterey Peninsula, Carmel Highlands, and Big Sur Coast will remain in effect for tomorrow morning into the early evening.

Showers will persist into tomorrow evening as the main surface boundary moves through, with the best rainfall chances at that point south of the Bay Area. Precipitation chances will remain in the forecast for Monday as the upper low slowly makes its way southward across the region. Activity will likely be more scattered with the higher elevations of the Central Coast and southward most likely to see thunderstorms on Monday. Little has changed with regard to snow levels. Sunday, when the bulk of the rain is expected, will see snow levels above 4500 feet before lowering to around 3000/3500 feet on Monday when precipitation is more scattered. Higher peaks may see a dusting though.

The upper low will then slowly make its way southward through mid-week. There are some timing differences between the GFS and the ECMWF at this point. The GFS moves the system into soCal more quickly and ends shower chances for the Central Coast by Tuesday afternoon while the ECMWF lags behind enough to keep showers lingering into Wednesday. Once the upper low does finally exit, high pressure will build back in late next week leading to warming and drying. Many interior locations may be in the low 70s towards the end of the week.

AVIATION. as of 10:55 AM PDT Saturday . For 18Z TAFs. A storm system will continue moving across the region today bringing periods of light to moderate rainfall and wet runways to area terminals. MVFR to localized IFR cigs expected as the frontal boundary moves through. Winds have already turn southerly over the Bay Area and will strengthen this afternoon becoming gusty at select terminals. Rainy conditions will persist tonight and Sunday as the parent low approaches from the northwest. Strong and gusty winds will ramp up on Sunday morning as a stronger boundary moves through the region.

Vicinity of KSFO . MVFR cigs will prevail through much of the forecast period with periods of light to moderate rainfall. Southerly winds will strengthen after midnight tonight with sustained winds increasing to 20 to 25 kt and gust to 30 to 35 kt possible by Sunday morning. We will watch this closely as gusts may reach the Airport Weather Warning criteria of 34 knots.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . MVFR cigs will prevail through much of the forecast period with periods of light to moderate rainfall. West to southwesterly winds will strengthen this afternoon with sustained wind around 10 to 15 kt and gusts to 18 kt possible. Stronger south to southwesterly winds expected Sunday morning with sustained winds increasing to 15 to 23 kt and gust to 25 to 35 kt possible.

MARINE. as of 9:03 AM PDT Saturday . Winds will shift to the southwest today as a storm system moves in over the coastal waters. This storm will bring wet weather to the region today and continue into early next week. High pressure will return by the middle of next week bringing a return of drier weather. A prevailing moderate northwesterly swell will persist through much of the forecast period.

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.
