New AVIATION, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 102 PM PDT Sat Apr 13 2024

Rain showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue through the overnight hours while shifting southward. Storm chances decrease overnight, but showers linger into Sunday afternoon before dry weather returns. A warming trend is then expected throughout the upcoming week.

UPDATE
Issued at 847 PM PDT Sat Apr 13 2024

Pretty interesting weather day around the Bay Area and Central.
Ample cloud cover, colder airmass/fropa, and precipitation led to a rather chilly day. Temperatures maxed out in the 40s to mid 50s with the highest peaks staying in the 30s. That's about 15 to 35 degrees below seasonal average mid-April. In addition to the chilly temperatures winds remained breezy to gusty at times out of the south. The stronger winds gave an extra bite to the temperatures and made it feel a little more raw. Currently some of the hills around the region are sporting wind chilling values in the mid 20s to low 30s.

As for precip, a solid band of precip rolled through earlier today with the fropa. In its wake precip has turned more showery/convective
More on this a little later
Rainfall amounts over the last 24 hours are pretty decent with pre-frontal precip yesterday evening/last night and the fropa today. Rainfall amounts: 0.75-1.5" coastal mts with Anderson Peak above Big Sur the winner at 2.33". Elsewhere, generally 0.20-0.75". As stated above, the passing system brought in colder air. Snow levels dropped last night and remained lowered for most of the day. As a result, some of the higher peaks saw minor accumulations per webcams.

Convective activity over the coastal waters...While there are still thunderstorms in the official forecast there hasn't been any lightning observed. A few stronger cells came close earlier in the evening, but not enough vertical development/ice in the column for lightning production. CAPE (100-200 J/km) still remains decent offshore, but meso-analysis shows a sliver of CINH along the immediate coast. SST temps around 11C and observed 850mb temps around 0C-1C may not be enough differential to give the stronger cells the boost they need. In fact, latest KMUX radar is showing a more stratiform look with precip interacting with the melting layer. All that being said, won't take thunder out of the forecast just yet, but we'll be watching it closely as stronger showers move onshore through early tonight.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Sunday)
Issued at 102 PM PDT Sat Apr 13 2024

By this afternoon and evening we will transition to post frontal rain showers and isolated thunderstorms as the atmosphere aloft becomes more unstable. CAPE values are forecast to be between 200- 300 J/kg with little to no CIN. Any heavier showers and/or thunderstorms will be capable of producing brief heavy rainfall, gusty winds, copious amounts of small hail, occasional lightning, and rapid onset of flooding. Thunderstorm potential will shift southward tonight and diminish Sunday morning.

Lingering showers will be possible over the Central Coast through Sunday afternoon with conditions clearing out by the late evening.
Temperatures will struggle to warm into the upper 50s near the coast to low/mid 60s inland on Sunday (40s in the highest peaks).

LONG TERM
(Sunday night through next Friday)
Issued at 102 PM PDT Sat Apr 13 2024

High pressure will begin to build in wake of the exiting weather system and will allow for a warming and drying trend to resume. By Wednesday and Thursday, expecting the interior to warm into the upper 70s to lower 80s with upper 60s to mid 70s near the coast.
Friday and beyond, zonal flow sets up across the region allowing for a few degrees of cooling across the interior and more so at the coast with a likely return of a marine layer.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1049 PM PDT Sat Apr 13 2024

VFR through the period with some MVFR-IFR conditions possible as heavier bands of rain move through the region. Widespread light rain continues to enter the Bay Area. Thunderstorm chances decrease overnight with the highest areas of potential remaining offshore. SE winds will gradually turn SW moving through the TAF period with gustier conditions to continue through the early morning.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR through the TAF period with some potential for MVFR to develop if heavier showers move over the airport. Showers will linger through tomorrow afternoon. Moderate SE winds will gradually transition westerly moving through the TAF period.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...VFR through the TAF period with MVFR possible if heavier showers move directly over the airport. Showers will continue through the early morning hours with drier conditions to follow. Moderate SE winds continue through the early morning with light to moderate westerly winds expected through the rest of the TAF period.

MARINE
(Tonight through next Friday)
Issued at 1049 PM PDT Sat Apr 13 2024
