Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 1124 PM PDT Sun Jun 20 2021

SYNOPSIS. As the marine layer has reestablished and lower pressure develops just west of the coast, cooler temperatures will continue for much of the week and possibly drop below average by midweek. Expect breezy conditions in the afternoon and evening hours for the next few days. The next chance for warmer temperatures looks to be next weekend with inland areas returning to the 90s.

DISCUSSION. as of as of 09:10 PM PDT Sunday . Infrared satellite imagery shows the offshore low pressure system centered near 34.5 N 128.5 W which is about 350 miles west of the Monterey Peninsula. This low is still forecast to gradually track into our region this week which will bring a cooler trend along with higher humidity values Monday through midweek. We'll also see a trend of breezy conditions in the afternoons and evenings for the first half of the week as onshore flow strengthens.

Stratus is once again banked up against the entire central CA and Bay Area coastline. The latest Fort Ord Profiler observations indicate that the marine layer is gradually deepening (now around 1800-2000 ft) which will allow for a greater marine influence inland (thanks to that low pressure system). The NAM model continues to hint at drizzle along the coast so don't be surprised if you have to use your windshield wipers intermittently closer to the coast.

Willow Fire did get a small burst of growth later this afternoon into early evening today. We saw the smoke plume become more prominent on satellite as it tracked northward towards the Bay Area. However, the smoke was elevated and did not have near surface impacts except closer to the actual fire perimeter. Ridgetop winds look a little stronger Monday night into Tuesday near the fire as the low gets closer to the coast, but the good news is that this will also coincide with cooler and moister conditions.

Looking ahead, the GFS and ECMWF are not in good alignment for the end of this week. There's still uncertainty as to when the next warm up will start this weekend. The ECMWF has this low pressure being more robust and staying over our CWA into Saturday morning before getting pushed northward by strengthening high pressure over the Four Corners region. Meanwhile, the GFS shows the high pressure pushing that low out of our area by early Friday. So while we are expecting a warm up this weekend, the confidence isn't strong as to it starting by Friday or by Saturday.

PREV DISCUSSION. as of 01:48 PM PDT Sunday . Seems appropriate that sunny skies accompany the Summer Solstice. Most of the Bay Area is experiencing sunny skies this afternoon, but coastal areas on the other hand are hanging onto some clouds. Despite the inland sunshine temperatures are actually running a few degrees cool across the interior. 5-10 degrees cooler in fact.

As for the Willow Fire - conditions have improved a little this afternoon with less smoke production, but satellite still shows some heat. Nearby weather stations are still relatively hot and dry with temps in the low 90s and RH dropping into the teens. HRRR smoke appears to be a little over done for this afternoon, but some smoke/haze is still possible N and E and of the Willow Fire.

For tonight . low clouds along the coast will move inland again. Some patchy fog/drizzle will also be possible.

The upper level low pressure lurking off the CA coast will continue to slowly drift eastward. This low will help to deepen the night/morning marine layer and cause further cooling/moistening of the region. Temperatures will cool a few degrees each day through Wednesday with more widespread 60s/70s at the coast and 70s/low 90s inland. A few of the models spit out some precip as the low approaches over the waters and coast. This is most likely drizzle. Therefore patchy drizzle has been added to the forecast. Wouldn't be surprised to see a few bucket tips Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. The previous discussion mentioned the possibility of thunderstorms over NorCal. Lastest guidance stills shows some lift and moisture Monday and Tuesday, but primarily north of the Bay Area.

The upper low meanders slowly to the NE Wednesday through Friday keeping relatively quiet and cooler weather in places. What happens there after is lower confidence as medium range models shows are almost out of phase. The EC keeps the low/trough in place and the GFS shows a robust ridge with more of a heat signal. Ensembles fall somewhere in the middle. Given the uncertainty will allow for a slight warming trend next weekend, but not increase too much yet. Far interior locations have a shot at triple digit heat once again Stay tuned.

AVIATION. For the 06z TAFs. Evening satellite is showing the marine layer spreading deeper into interior valleys. This trend will continue as low pressure sits off the coast of California. Therefore, look for cigs to develop around the region through the night. Smoke will continue to be an issue as the Willow fire remains active. Look for clearing tomorrow from the cloud decks, but smoke will linger through the day.

Vicinity of KSFO . The marine layer is slowly returning. MVFR/IFR conditions expected through mid to late tomorrow morning. Onshore winds tomorrow afternoon around 15kts.

SFO Bridge Approach . Wildfire smoke may occasionally reduce slant range visibility, otherwise similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . IFR cigs are expected overnight with clearing mid morning Monday. Smoke could be an issue, especially out to the east of the airports.

MARINE. as of 10:54 PM PDT Sunday . South to southwest winds will persist through early this week. Locally breezy west to southwest winds are expected north of the Bay Bridge in the afternoons and evenings the next couple of days. Winds will gradually shift back out of west to northwest mid to late week. Seas remain northwest at 9 to 11 seconds along with a marginal southerly swell.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Tngt. NONE.
