Synopsis for the central california coast and bays including the Monterey bay..Greater farallones...and cordell bank national marine sanctuaries... A weak frontal system will bring light to moderate rain to the northern waters tonight. Light to moderate southerly winds will then continue through much of the week as a series of frontal systems pass north of the area. Winds shifting to the northwest towards the weekend. A moderate northwest swell will persist before a longer period northwest swell arrives on Thursday. Wave heights will gradually build heading into the coming weekend creating hazardous seas conditions, particularly for smaller vessels.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Sacramento CA 302 PM PST Tue Dec 10 2019

SYNOPSIS. Rain returns to the region tonight tapering to a few light showers on Wednesday. Widespread precipitation expected later in the week and into the weekend. Drier weather Sunday and early next week.

DISCUSSION. After the morning fog in the Valley, much of the low cloud deck was slow to erode. Now the clouds associated and ahead of the frontal band along the coast are moving into our area and will spread over the Sierra early this evening. It has been a sunny, seasonably pleasant day in the Sierra as the higher elevations were above the fog and well to the east of the advancing cloud deck from the west for most of the day. But that will change this evening.

The frontal system will move into the region, spreading light rain over much of our CWA beginning late this afternoon and continuing into the evening. Radar echoes along the Nrn CA coast this morning are now moving onshore at press time, and the timing of the upper trof suggests the frontal precip should end by Wed morning as the trof moves through our region. Satellite trends suggest a brief period of clearing early Wed morning as the trof passes, followed by an increase in cloud cover during the day. Behind the trof, heights rebuild on Wed as a ridge axis slides across the region. Some light sprinkles or showers are still possible mainly in the Nrn part of our CWA on Wed, where WAA (about 7 deg C/12hr in the 850-700 mbs layer) could result in some light precip.

An increase in precip is forecast over Norcal Wed nite and Thu as a strong 150kt Pac jet south of the GOA (Gulf of AK) low reaches the coast and focuses a +3 PW anomaly into our CWA. The U.S. West Coast AR Tool shows that a "weak" AR (TPW/moisture plume) along 140W will make "landfall" during this time (late on 12/11 and into 12/12). Rising 5H heights will steer the storm track and main dynamics a little farther N and into the Pac NW. But the strong WAA Wed nite and Thu (over 5 deg C/12 hr in the 850-700 mbs layer) will interact with the moisture plume resulting in steady precip over Norcal, mainly over the Nrn mtns and areas N of I-80. An inch or so of precip is forecast over Shasta Co during this time, with amounts tapering off rapidly Swd to the I-80 corridor. South of I-80, only a few hundredths are expected as the storm track shifts Nwd.

Looks as if it will be a little wetter in our CWA on Fri from earlier forecasts as 5H heights begin to fall slowly as the GOA trof emerges from its source region. This will keep the TPW plume over our CWA through the day. Comparing our QPF with the ECMWF ensembles we are generally a little low/light on the QPF and we made a last minute upward adjustment this afternoon . but still we may be a little too light. The bulk of the precip is still forecast over the Sierra.

Snow levels will be rising Wed nite and Thu to 8Kft or so limiting winter travel impacts, until they lower below the passes Fri nite. JHM

EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Saturday THROUGH Tuesday).

By Saturday morning expect ongoing precipitation mainly over the mountains and foothills, although a few lingering showers may be possible in the Valley. Snow levels will range from 4-5kft Saturday, although snowfall accumulations themselves will only be a few inches. Some minor mountain travel impacts are anticipated Saturday due to this lingering precipitation. Models have trended a bit later to bring dry weather back to the area, as a few light lingering snow showers will be possible through Sunday morning.

Upper level ridging builds into the area Sunday and Monday. Mostly clear skies and average temperatures are expected early next week. Ensemble guidance shows the potential for another system to impact NorCal Tuesday, although confidence with this system remains low at this time.

AVIATION.

Deteriorating conditions expected as a system moves across northern California tonight. Light rain is expected at RDD/RBL between 04-06Z, spreading south towards Sacramento terminals shortly after. MVFR/IFR conditions likely overnight at these sites, with possible LIFR conditions returning to southernmost terminals.

STO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

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.
