Synopsis for the central california coast and bays including the Monterey bay..Greater farallones...and cordell bank national marine sanctuaries... Northwest winds will be breezy today as a coastal trough develops over southern california while high pressure builds offshore. Moderate to large northwest swell will gradually subside into early next week. The combination of gusty winds and large combined seas will create hazardous seas conditions through tomorrow evening, particularly for smaller vessels. Southerly winds will return later on Monday ahead of the next weather system.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Sacramento CA 258 AM PST Sun Dec 15 2019

SYNOPSIS. Scattered snow showers over the Sierra will linger overnight with drier weather returning to the region for Sunday into early next week. A weak system moves through mid-week with additional precipitation chances into next weekend.

DISCUSSION. With the base of the shortwave trough already into central Nevada, much of the snow shower activity over the Sierra has begun to wind down. Recent KDAX radar imagery does show some weak echoes, mainly south of Highway 50. With cold advection in the wake along with decreasing cloud cover, many Valley locations have cooled off considerably relative to previous days. Current overnight temperatures run from the mid 30s across the northern Sacramento Valley to the mid 40s in the northern San Joaquin Valley given a bit more wind. The light breezes may inhibit any pronounced fog development with the GOES-17 nighttime fog product supporting this notion. 06Z HREF probabilities show some enhanced values from Marysville southward to near Stockton so have kept patchy fog in the forecast through mid-morning.

Today will mark the start of a brief period of dry weather across northern California which continues through Tuesday. High temperatures remain rather close to climatology with some cool mornings ahead. Decreasing winds and cloud cover support readings in the 30s across the Valley, roughly 2 to 4 degrees below average. The usual cool spot will be mountain locales as overnight lows regularly drop into the teens and 20s. Overall, expect some patchy Valley fog to form each morning given the amount of moisture on surfaces, especially from north of Sacramento down to Turlock.

There will likely be an increase in cloud cover Tuesday ahead of a closed low offshore. Warm advection precipitation is forecast to reach western portions of the Valley, Coastal Range, and Delta region by late Tuesday night. The guidance has continued to struggle with the handling of the system and how much impact it will have. A number of GFS runs favor a wetter scenario, particularly I-80 southward while the ECMWF has either been dry, or more recently carries light precipitation. Will continue to favor a low impact event with lower Valley rainfall amounts and minimal issues across the mountains. Future model cycles will hopefully iron out these differences in the upcoming days. ~BRO

EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Thursday THROUGH Sunday). Ensembles in reasonable agreement that short-wave ridging will amplify and shift east later this week as upstream trough deepens over the eastern Pacific. Precipitation chances remain focused across the far northern portion of the forecast area along a nearly stationary frontal boundary late in the week, but both GFS and EC ensembles indicate an upswing in QPF later Saturday into Sunday as a cold front finally swings onshore ahead of the approaching trough. Snow levels forecast to lower to around 3500-4500 feet on Sunday leading to an increasing risk for travel impacts across the mountain passes.

AVIATION. VFR conditions predominate the next 24 hours except for local MVFR vicinity scattered -SHSN over the northern Sierra Nevada until around 14Z, and local MVFR conditions in the Central Valley 14Z- 19Z. Surface winds at TAF sites remain under 10 knots.

STO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Winter Weather Advisory until 4 AM PST early this morning for West Slope Northern Sierra Nevada-Western Plumas County/Lassen Park.

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.
